you would not be alive if someone at one point in your life did not gently place their hand on your body. there is no self-sufficiency. the ants need the birds need the trees need the ocean need the moon need the vast universe. the moon could not survive alone, even gravity has a hold with her. why would you be an exception?

Spent much of this evening reading through @samuteki 's blog and am finding the writing to be very engaging, maybe not the right word, magnetic seems more accurate, I'm very drawn to continue reading (and indeed I will do).
This article on racism in Japan is exceptionally well considered, organised and very carefully and intentionally explained. Very much worth a read.
Fuck, I have to get ready for tomorrow. Ow, my head hurts. Okay, it's not so bad now. Fuck, I have to get ready for tomorrow...
I keep going around and around in a loop.
You ever get a stress headache that is just strong enough that you acknowledge you should take some pills, but not strong enough for you to remember to get the pills until it hurts again?
Not sure this will work, but it doesn't hurt to ask: Does anyone here on the Fediverse have experience with the full procedure (from 0, without even a G1 license yet) of getting a driver's license and a modified vehicle as a disabled person in Ontario, Canada? I'm very confused right now as a newcomer reading all the rules and regulations and would appreciate someone who has done this before giving a bit of a TL;DR.
I finally got to work on a design project of mine today, after taking care of a bunch of chores and spending time with my girlfriend.
When I sat back down to start working again, I got that nice little feeling when you see something you made with fresh eyes and almost surprise yourself with how good it looks.
Feeling pretty good right now :)
I meditated tonight. Second night in a row. Hadn't meditated for about a year beforehand.
But felt like my mind was long overdue for a break.
Started to feel something new: like my 'I' and my thoughts both trying to take the wheel in a car.
Started to feel like the unconscious mind gets to the wheel quicker, but the conscious mind has more ability to insert itself, when a gap is inserted.
I'm aware this might sound crazy.
