The internet is often praised for speed, instant communication.

We use things people said online to crucify them. We talk of futures we fear or delight in, but it is all in the past.

The internet is far from instant. People change every moment. We have to stop condemning each other.

I'm not against debate, but remember we're all suffering and the below each side of an argument is someone suffering.

@Rheall Hey. Hi. Just checking in. How are you? What have you been up to? How is things?

I want to advise someone in our community about having a #reCAPTCHA for their #mailinglist or not. But I have no experience with them.

Would like to either recommend a good, unobtrusive alternative to #google here, or able to state with confidence that no captcha is needed (the website just registers the email adress with a form post).

What are your recommendations?

I will add in a poll for good measure..

🔑 How do you protect your mailing list..

Getting lost in the creativity of drawing and painting is therapeutic. It often recharges my batteries. However, sometimes I do not have enough energy to even start. Feeling of overwhelm and stress prevent me from creating.

Sometimes we need some assistance. Baking is a way to channel creativity with the help of a recipe. Perhaps those adult colouring books will give you some energy by relieving you from making the initial drawing.

For me, well I have been sculpting and polishing rocks into #worrystones. Training to volunteer on the local crisis line since July, has been challenging. My therapy has intensified as well. So, I found myself making these by hand. The process is slow, repetitive, and creative. Even the search for the right rocks is rewarding with a low output of energy for me.

What is your go to when you lack the energy to go all in?

In an alternate universe without alcohol pubs are filled with bulk food bins and everyone stress eats. I am a traveler from that world. Sitting on the couch eating chocolate chips from the bag.

Too bad Steve Jobs didn't live to see his dream of young women using his technology suggestively lip sync & gyrate to pop music on Tik Tok.

making straight people have to choose 'other' and write it in is praxis

Listening to Norman Doidge give a presentation live for a conference I registered for. Learning more about brain plasticity.

I was looking at using Shopify for original artwork with the idea of being able to upgrade to get a credit card acceptor-type-thing that I could take to local markets. Then the pandemic happened.

So, I have been sitting on unsold and not doing any markets. Now I see Ko-Fi :ko_fi: has a shop. What's interesting about that is the idea of people being able to purchase or donate in one location.


My 5 year letter simply says, "Congratulations, the human race is extinct. "

Sliding through my replies and I think,

When you think about it, most startups are very similar to MLMs.

There was a time when one's phone booted up faster than one's computer.

Do you like doing surveys?

Hey #musicproduction people. How long does it take for you to finish the track?

MH [~] EMDR 

My first real session is today. I cannot shake the idea that it won't help and that I'll be wasting the time of the doctor. I will participate wrong and fail. This is the narrative I play in my head.

Before I was excited for the opportunity to try EMDR, but the idea of attacking my self-critical voice and core belief that I am a failure has me terrified.

The design is based off of one of my snowflake designs. You can Pay What You Want (including $0!) for the PDF Snowflake Colouring Book here:

[2/2] Does this mean that and will never be able to compete fully?

Does need to be changed? It's being changed regardless of the law, thanks to the web. Many people raised with the web think nothing of using an image they found online. Creators of goodies recognize the work put into things and respect copyright, and corporations force creators into bad contracts and exploit copyright for their own benefit.
