Hey πŸ‘‹ it's easier to follow an account than a hashtag, so I created this one for Read.as.

Read.as is a long-form reader, similar to Feedly, built to be a peaceful place to read things from the fediverse :fediverse: -- particularly from long-form platforms like #Plume, @write_as, #Microblogpub, etc. In the future it'll also support RSS and curating what you read on your own profile.

It's built from scratch to be #FOSS, and is still very early in its development. But...

It is hard to believe such stupidity can exist in the human race, but there it is :-o /jd

'North Carolina [passed] legislation prohibiting state and local agencies from making planning decisions based on the latest climate science about sea level rise....

Now the state is facing the threat of a life-threatening storm surge, which could cause billions of dollars in damage.'

Poem:

who can foresee all chances,
all risks that may or may not
exist in this world, this town,
this home, this room, this bed?

the window, open to the rain
beckons you with the rustle
of its sound, soft noise, beads
of water lying silent

on the sill, patient, immense
in your eye as it comes close
to see, to catch their scent -
yes that - to breathe & say

here i am with you, perhaps
safe, perhaps not, but not alone
in the dark, though the sky
screams grey! grey! grey!

Hi. I've always written poetry since I got a crush on a green-eyed girl in middle school. You can see some of my stuff here: ello.co/robertodelgado
It is a series of 64 poems based on the I Ching. I don't think they are bad. I joined Mastodon because the birdie place is boring and I want to get that chaotic-interweb feeling back and I need something to glance at that will make me chuckle during my work day.

Cheers!

"I'm glad we're not sourcing anymore experimental zydeco music," I said.

"That's what you said about klezmer powernoise, and look where that got you," she shouted back to me.

I threw another accordion from the upper deck of the hovercraft. If I had any great affection for them I'd wince as the reeds splintered between great alligator jaws. But lighter boats are faster boats, and faster boats aren't eaten by reptiles.

Mental Health discussion but in a feelgood way 

A lot of it was not even my own introspection, I'm lucky to have met people with strong introspective skills and understandings of their own thoughts and behaviours who have experiences so similar to my own that I can learn a lot from their own understanding of themself.

Mental Health discussion but in a feelgood way 

I feel really good about the future, where I've arrived as a person and how much I've grown. I feel like I have built functional internal mechanisms to deal with a lot of my long standing dysfunctions.
I may or may not be in some sort of extended hypomanic episode but I feel like I've made it fully last so many things which I've been hung up on.

Mental Health discussion but in a feelgood way 

I'm only just getting over the baggage built up from the frustrations and failings of my dysfunctions in and since high school. It shouldn't have took this long maybe but I've lacked some of the necessary capacity for introspection on my own internalised experience that I could only really deal with the intense pain of my internal conflicts, especially where they became more akin to a disease than a struggle to learn from.

Mental Health discussion but in a feelgood way 

I let a lot of internal conflicts become these things I could only ever suffer from and flail against, because of how badly depressive I was/still am and how much I did have debilitating social anxiety.
It has taken many years of trying and failing and succeeding to live and make these things more bearable over time and eventually push enough past them to achieve the necessary introspection to learn. But I do feel as if I've gotten there.

So far: Mastodon experiment a success. To the lovely writing.exchange, while workload permits: Would love to critique your fiction if you want a test reader. My way of giving back to the Local Instance. :)

#17 

β€œAre you all right?” says David. β€œI can give the eulogy if it’s too much for you.”

I’m fine,” I say. β€œI give the eulogy, no one else. Understood? Man in black or no, I will speak for my son.” It takes me a moment to realize I spoke about him aloud. David looks confused, but knows better than to argue with me. The priest steps forward and opens the service with a prayer to which I struggle to listen.
