At this point again a big thank you to everyone who follows me, to everyone who reads my poems and texts❤️

I had an idea, a dream, that this world would be a little better

That people meet, talk to each other and thus prove that a respectful interaction between all of us is possible

Many of you have read my poems and written me the most beautiful words

I will continue to write for you to create awareness for a brighter future

Thank you ✨❤️

I think the idea of state-sanctioned drug use clinics is actually very reasonable and kind thing.

Addiction is a disease, not a crime or personal failing, and for a state government (as Minnesota is doing) to code in public policy the fact that addicts don't deserve to die sends a very powerful message.

It's just odd that it's a US government (granted, state-level) doing it, as our policy in this country is generally to demonize addicts.

My daily reminder, kindness is compassion in action.

Getting work done on the house today. I was surprised and dismayed to discover a birdhouse hanging from the eaves has occupants. I had assumed it was empty until I saw a chickadee fly in and heard peeps coming from inside. The company owner noticed the birds as well. He gave his crew chief firm instructions to take care working around the nest, to move it only when it is absolutely in the way, and to hang it back in place as soon as they are done working on that spot. Hopefully the disturbance isn't too much for mama and papa bird to cope with; I'd hate for them to abandon the family. #chickadee #kindness

CITIZENS OF THIS WORLD

When books are banned...
When human rights are suspended...
When prohibitions no longer serve to protect all....
When unjust becomes law...
When people are influenced...
When laws serve only a few...
When freedom is curtailed...

Then the first step towards a totalitarian, undemocratic and dictatorial state is taken.

If we don't all fight against it together, stop it, then the first step is just a series of many more.

Do you also wonder what the future may look like?

I look back 20 years and ask myself what has changed
Has it become better?
Have we become better?

The thoughts from back then
that the world is turning bad
Have not really become better
They are worse

We go, humanly speaking, steps backwards
We are not moving forward

My local supermarket has a promotion going with a well-known service organisation and I wasn't carrying my membership card. The lovely lady at the till suggested I make a phonecall to find out my memb number. Couldn't get through.
So she recalled her own number, punched it in, and saved me $25.
She then shyly confessed she had never done that before 🥰 😊

#Quotes #Kindness #Evil #HonireDeBalzac

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Kindness is not without its rocks ahead. People are apt to put it down to an easy temper and seldom recognize it as the secret striving of a generous nature; whilst, on the other hand, the ill-natured get credit for all the evil they refrain from. -Honore De Balzac, novelist (20 May 1799-1850)

Hello Lovely Peeps,

Her Last Purr

Hey all, searching Reddit for some help. I had to put down my cat the day before yesterday. Before she went, they gave her some pain meds and I got to hear her sweet purr one last time. I was wondering if I could request some help with how to isolate the sound of her purr from the background audio of the video I recorded. I don’t even know if it’s possible, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

One of my long time clients of over a decade just emailed me to let me know that he's retiring after having sold his company and seeing the merger through a successful transition.

Freelancing isn't for everyone. It's extremely lonely to never have a permanent team to be a part of.

When you're forever transient, having clients who treat you as a person who meant enough to them that they thought of you as someone they should notify of their major life changes, makes all the late nights you've put in for them worthwhile.

These small human touches are huge gestures that you really appreciate when you work as a freelancer, especially a solo freelancer.

#today started with a man in our neighborhood breaking down in tears because of how terribly his employer is treating him, and financial hardship he's suffering as a result.

Today ended with a lot of our neighbours donating grocery items and money to give him a huge care package with basic items as well as some nice treats for him and his son.

And I don't live in a well off neighborhood. People are awesome.

We're also going to sort out his employment situation. Enough is enough.

@Richard_Littler @actuallyautistic

Most human traits are shared across the board, whether you have #autism or not. These traits are also combined with so many variables that there's no way to uphold *any* sort of claim that "group x is _____". That's textbook bigotry & #prejudice.

When we get off the beaten path, we still find this kind of #symmetry. For every above average person there's a below average one. This is regardless of being #autistic or any other category.

Also, there is no single 'box'. There's one for every context, and most of the time, by definition, the box represents a successful strategy already adopted. The time to go outside these norms is when a new problem arises, or the standard way no longer works. It is not a constant.

If increased acceptance of #diversity is the goal, let's not go about it by hammering wedges between people by claiming to be superior to others, or to be uniquely suffering in this absurd world.

It's true that we can speak of increased likeliness for certain things (including many bad ones you did not mention), given the small % of people in the autistic basket, but that will always be countered by the sheer numbers of human beings near the middle of the bell curve-- literally billions-- who are *not* being individually accommodated by anyone.

Hi Everyone! 👋

Today let's keep in mind that small acts of kindness can go a long way in boosting your mental health.

Show kindness to yourself by speaking positively and engaging in self-care. And spread kindness to others by offering compliments, lending a listening ear, or volunteering.

By practicing kindness, we open our hearts to compassion.

Keep moving forward. You're doing great!

#kindness #mentalhealth #positivity

This is such an excellent resource to remind oneself of how to foster a healthy work environment, or a healthy mailing list, or a healthy team, etc.

To the exception of the bits specific to code review such as “automate” and “keep patches small”, you can replace “code review” by “collaborative work” when you read it, and there, you have a neat and useful handbook!

Had a sandwich here this afternoon. Had a chat with the owner about how hard times are getting. He seemed like a good guy. If you're in Paris, go there and try their good.

The sandwich was really good too.

I am grateful to create art for a Ram Dass calendar each year.
If you don't know much about him, it might be worth checking out his story. He's no longer with us, but what he talked about really hits home for me. There's this one story he wrote that I absolutely love.
I got to meet him briefly when he was in the hospital.
The way he embodied pure love and kindness was something I'd never felt before.
His eyes were so clear and innocent, like a child's.

This is a watercolor painting of some soft trees and abstract brushstrokes. On top of the painting is a box with a quote from a spiritual teacher named. Ram Dass . It says: 
“When you go out into the woods, and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all emotional about it. You just allow it. You appreciate the tree.

The minute you get near humans, you lose all that. And you are constantly saying ‘You are too this, or I’m too this.’ That judgment mind comes in. And so I practice turning people into trees. Which means appreciating them just the way they are.”

― Ram Dass

This is one of the sweetest expressions of love for animals I have ever seen. I’m enamored with this Dazza fellow and his little frog sanctuary. 😍

#introduction How to define a Karstan? I'm just this guy, you know? Some labels that fit me: #maker, #neurodivergent (severe #ADHD), #vegan, cis man, #nerd, #lefty. (Day job is as a sysadmin in fintech)

I tinker on stuff. Wood stuff, metal stuff, digital stuff, and so forth. Portland, OR resident since 2000. I like #bikes. And #sailboats. Politically rather far to the #left. But revolutions aren't JUST about lining fascists up against a wall. They take everyday #communitybuilding and #kindness.

Photo of me, a white, bald man in my 40s. I'm mustachioed, wearing glasses and a gray, flat cap (english style). I have my arms crossed and I'm smiling. I'm standing in front of a ladder leading into a dumpster.

I'm seated on a log next to a river with a bridge over my shoulder. On my lap I'm holding two small dogs, both chihuaha mixes. One is tan and has a look of terrier to him. The other is dark and appears to have some miniature pinscher.

Over top of that I have a tan work apron with tools in the pockets. Over my shoulder you can see a room under construction.
