Pinned toot re: where I live
Now that I'm meeting some of y'all IRL, I realize I should clarify for the curious:
As my intro toot says, I live on a commune. It's on the east coast of the USA. I've lived there since 2015. I love it.
And I needed a break from it. So I'm taking 2019 off, staying with friends/fam in the PNW. I'll head east again at the end of this year. I miss my fellow communards, and especially my sweetie, but I'm also really enjoying being back in my home region. 🌲💚🌲

I don't remember opening this tab, but it's an incredible collection of pics of African architecture (on Twitter), well worth your time. (If you shared it previously, thanks!)

Hot criminal justice take
Felicity Huffman’s prison sentence is very light, especially in comparison to the sentences of those with far less privilege.
However, society is no better served by putting her in jail for months/years than my putting the mom who misrepresented her residence in jail.
The answer isn’t more prison, the answer is something that *actually* improves the lives of those victimized by her fraud. She needs to pay restitution in the millions to those denied admission.
A maze of twisty little passages, all alike.
A community that skews thoughtful and weird. Everyone who abides by the code of conduct is welcome, thoughtful weirdos most of all! :)
