My ideal day job is groundskeeper, I have a vision of a homes surrounded by cottage gardens that fade into formal botanical gardens and then towards less managed spaces. No firm lines between food, ornamental, and wild. Towards the outside the arboretum type space fades into mildly managed forest, the other direction it fades into larger pasture and croplands. The large duck/lily pond is a point where the three focuses of horticulture, silviculture, and agriculture most expressly meet.

one of my tattoos is a diagram for what direction 4x5 film gets loaded into the film holder because the first time i did it, i loaded it backwards, and it is worth it for every time i have to roll up my sleeve and hold my arm out for a student while they sit there and rotate the film holder in front of me until it's in the right position
TDOR, message to trans women
Especially Black trans women:
There were many losses this year but you made it. Take a deep breath. If you can take it a little easier tonight. It's awful that we're getting killed out there but hopefully those who come after us will only have to know the fear of times like this from stories.
We may be in the dark but I see light at the end of the tunnel, can you see it too? ❤️
Mental health (+), reference to suicidal thoughts
Wanting to live after a period of wanting to die is like playing chess. You look at the board and think, "this isn't going well. I want to be over here, doing this, but I'm stuck behind these doing that" We need to plot our way to a different state of affairs. It may be possible, it may not. It may involve major losses, it may not. WE MAY NEED A WHOLE NEW GAME TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT WE'RE THINKING OF
What we do not want to do
is stop playing.
