Sometimes you want to take a picture, capture how the morning light looks filtering through the trees; your cooled skin; the sound of birds.

But you can never smell the air in that photo. You can't look around to see the rest of the world from that spot you stood, capturing a split second of light.

The only way to remember it is to sit for a while; feel it as deeply as you can; accept that it'll never be as good as it is right now.

Have been trying not to think about how much I miss traveling for the past year. This did me in today.

From @scearley:

Came across SpaceHey today via this Vice article, which has me thinking about the and centralization vs. decentralization, as always.

Why do you build what you're building? I think I'm after something real, for once, in a sea of crappy commercialism.

New to the Fediverse, still finding my way around. I'm a Brazilian who fell in love with winter living in Canada. I'm reading all the time (sci-fi and fantasy). I love hiking, writing, (not all) heavy metal music, tea and lots of quiet time.

. Hi, I'm new here. I like to write nonfiction. My favorite topics are feminism, gender, and history. I'm here to connect with other people who love to write, to read their work, and share my stuff as well. I blog at

One nice thing about having multiple blogs on @write_as is that I can start writing a post for this microblog, and if it turns into something more that I want to share on my main blog, I can just switch the blog it's going to publish to.

Made more progress on my weekend project, a tool for generating images like this for social media.

Right now, it's an open source command-line tool written in Go, with a few configurable options. You can find the AGPL-licensed code on GitHub and start using it now!

Father of beatuful little girl. Husband of good and beatiful wife. Book reader who works in book store. Lives in Zemun in Serbia. I love to read classical and modern russian literature. Pelevin's Iphuck 10 blown me away. I tried writing, but i'm better in reading. 😂

Working on a small tool to generate an image from a bit of text, made especially for any WriteFreely-based blog.

Basically, you'll use this to highlight something you wrote along with your blog URL, so you can then share it to Pixelfed or Instagram.
