Hi Merveilles and Fedi!

After a tumultuous few months I can finally comfortably communicate via text again. It’s been a highly transformative time for me so the things I’m putting time and thought into have changed quite dramatically.

I’ve had to turn my attention away from politics, the software freedom movement, coding and teaching - i.e. basically all the major components of my life a few months ago.


All my focus right now is on health, psychology, physiology and all the moving parts that go into physical and mental health.

So the things I have to chat about will have almost nothing in common with what I had to say before. I’m not entirely sure how exactly I fit into the fedi now because of that, but let’s see what happens!

@freedcreative Welcome back! The more we talk about something else than tech and politics, the more appealing this net will be.

@tagomago Thanks! Tbh even though my hand was forced I am personally better for the shift in focus.

@freedcreative I was wondering about you just recently, so good to see you again :) I don't think the new focus will put me off, personally, because I see a lot of those themes on my TL.

@ljwrites Oh I just thought, if you’re seeing these themes a lot, perhaps you could recommend some follows?

@freedcreative off the top of my head, dark_soil@rage.love meditates and often talks about mh related topics, while GwenfarsGarden@kith.kitchen talks about kitchen & garden stuff if that's something you're interested in! My old buddy alpine_thistle@fandom.ink is primarily a garden & food account too but also a medical nerd. You could also take a look at related subjects at Trunk! communitywiki.org/trunk

@freedcreative in fact I think it was through you I found Merveilles. You appeared on my feed at Fosstodon and I realised there was less FOSS politics (and general arguing) here and more creative thinking.

@oppen Sort of ironic then! Or full circle. One of the two.

@freedcreative nice to have you back on the Fedi!

I think with the things you mention you might have some important things to tell fedi about, Kezz.

Would also like to pass you this link in case you missed it: news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2

@humanetech Thanks! Both for the welcome and the share. 🙂

I’ve actually played a little bit with Talon and it is outstanding. I’m taking a break from dev in general at the moment but if / when I come back to it Talon will definitely be the way I do it.
