Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.

When your eyes are tired
the world is tired also.

When your vision has gone
no part of the world can find you.

Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognize its own.

There you can be sure
you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your womb

The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.

You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in

Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Twitter data breach CONFIRMED, affects tens of millions of accounts (far more than originally thought). I was suspended from Twitter hours after reporting this.

In case you don’t believe the same equations govern #motion in the #atmosphere and the #ocean.

Can’t get yesterday’s #guardian cartoon out of my mind.

How did it come to this?


Twitter was never a healthy "public square" for most of us. Let's not rewrite history while eulogizing the hellsite.
Twitter was a frightening battleground where we managed barely to claw out an uneasy existence amidst the worst violent neo-Nazi extremists who constantly published our home addresses, threatened our kids' lives, and sent hordes of racist trolls into our mentions.
The same principles that allowed us to survive uneasily on Twitter will be required here in the #fediverse. Community defense, thoughtful pressure on moderation policies, and eternal vigilance.
There are no safe spaces but those we make safe through constant effort. We keep us safe.

130am in Beijing. Still going. Cries of “we want freedom, we want human rights”

The arguments for remaining on twitter to “fight” remind me of the gambling adage that the house always wins. “Fighting” there is like gambling and thinking you’ll eventually beat the house. But even if you win $10,000 at the slot machine it’s because it’s in the casino’s bigger interests to give you $10,000.

A viral post from a progressive helps prop up an increasingly reactionary company. @jeffjarvis

I don't know what Teflon Mask's psychological profile is, other than a narcissist, but his posts are becoming more and more dangerous.

The man who thinks the left are bad because they might voice opinions that might result in a lot of dead people is all wound up and set to flood Twitter with nazis and antivaxxers next week.

I still check Twitter for news and now I’m seeing Chinese-American journalists sharing about the protest with video clips. I haven’t been able to find these types of world event reporting yet on Mastodon. Does anyone have #MastodonAdvice for whom to follow or hashtags to track?


all my dreams involve taking off and landing in wild ways

most recently, the back tip of the plane was open and I was in a row of seats were there facing out as the plane took off. I could feeeel myself starting to fall as we kept climbing but never actually fell out

most other ones involve landing through bridges or taking off in storms through canyons, and it's always surprising how 'real' the gforces feel

why is this so common D: it's exhausting haha
