Oh, I am a dumb butt. I should have mentioned if isn't your thing, you can add that term (and ) to your filters list and you can still follow me and not see any of those posts...if I was alert enough to tag them...which I wasn't. I'm going to start over...

I'm going to be sharing images / music for the next two weeks. So, heads up if that's not your thing. It will all be over by May 16th.

Hard lesson:
You can respect someone without liking them -- and you should.
But...some people can and will like you without respecting you...and there's nothing you can do about it.

Half a century before I was born, society decided I would need a car to do anything at all and I really resent that.

[...] experienced Indigenous firefighters can have trouble rising through the ranks or earning respect from their non-Indigenous peers [...]

John Tayaba [...] said his crew of 24 sometimes feels relegated to “the back of the bus,” behind government agencies, when it comes to fighting fires in the state. Even if he and his crew are closest to a wildfire, for example, they’ll often have to wait for the state resources to arrive first, he said.

America is just the country that shows how all the written guarantees in the world for freedom are no protection against tyranny and oppression of the worst kind. There the politician has come to be looked upon as the very scum of society.

Introducing, the homepage for the #ClimateJustice fediverse instances.

You should find everything there is to know about the instances there. If anything you expect is missing please let me know.

I'm just going to randomly say this now that I'm thinking about it, because it's not said often enough: it's normal to have a bunch of thoughts when meditating. That's part of meditation. You don't suck at meditating. Don't try to block them out, don't try to empty your mind. Just let them pass, maybe write some down to think more on later, then return to focusing on your breath or whatever you were focused on.

Did you know that if your Microsoft account gets stolen, after you recover it you have to wait 30 days to remove the hacker email address as your recovery email and replace it with your own?

Did you also know that during this time you're unable to access security options such as signing your attacker out on any/all devices, or enabling 2FA?
