An #introduction is called for. I publish under the name of Mordecai Martin but you can call me Mo. I've been on Mastodon a while now, on other instances. Not always sure I like what I see, but I would dearly miss some of you who have become daily presences in my life. I write about #Judaism #Cities #Miracles and #Writing itself. I #wifepost about my wonderful wife, Atenea, I #catpost about my strange cat, Pharaoh-Let-My-People-Go the cat. I want you to feel cared for and listened to, but I will not tolerate #racism, #ableism, #homophobia, #transphobia, or for that matter, any bigotry or hatred and sometimes not even ignorance. I know I come off as a little hostile here, and I'm sorry about that. If you'd seen what I'd seen, you'd be wary too. Let's try this and see how we do.
Thanks everyone who's commenting, you make me feel really loved
https://jewishcurrents.org/are-we-post-sepharadim/ This is an incredible interview that's given me a lot to think about.
I try to be good at things I care about doing but I don't know, I don't know at all
I dunno, I almost always trust my readers to distinguish between me and my characters, except for this. Thoughts?
What are the other books that make us doubt the efficacy of revolution? Tale of Two Cities, certainly. Lord of the Flies makes us doubt whether cooperation is "natural." Hmmm. What else?
Credit where credits due: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." absolutely rips as a first sentence.
