A very improvised dinner tonight with what was on hand. A bowl with:
- Pearl barley
- A mixture of acorn squash, sweet potato, beetroot, spring onion, and garlic with some cumin, chili flakes, and turmeric
- Falafels made in an appam pan
- A smidge of feta.
We are tentatively calling it "Autumn Half-Moon Buddha Bowl" (vegan without the feta) 🤗
For your #BandcampFriday pleasure, I'd like to highlight my album "Crestfallen." Sampler below!
It features the wonderful Alyssa Fischer on vocals and was mastered by @hilljam

I played Far: Changing Tides because it was free on PlayStation Plus, and enjoyed it. The orchestral soundtrack, in particular, is outstanding. If you enjoyed old school puzzle-platformers or those weird little Flash games like Samorost, you’d love this.
I love these little games that are nonviolent and give you a lovely time to relax.
I did not realize that this is the sequel to Far: Lone Sails, so I’m off to play that.
Definitely inspired by #LofiGirl ^__^
I think I like the version without the person better, what do you think?
Omg I heard of Townscaper this morning, and I love it. This is the cutest game/digital toy, this is like so much MY THING (tm)

(Also on pretty much every main platform, including mobile!)
I've finished: Paladin's Grace by T. Kingfisher
In this anxious time of destruction and war I couldn't handle any extra load. T. Kingfisher with this (mostly) low stakes cozy romance, was all I could handle. She helped me wined down and get some rest.
There is something compelling about women with sensitive noses and chivalrous knights. (See also, Clockwork Boys).
Come autumn, the nights grow cooler . . . and longer. But on those early evenings, those shorter days, the lights of home glow all the more warmly, inviting the traveler home.

Did you know⁉️
#StardewValley actually has a 144-page graphic novel prequel. 📚
Lovingly illustrated by the talented Chihiro Sakaida, you can find out more about it right here:
Mandy Fourteen settled into the luxurious SkyJumper. Miss Clit pressed the button to engage the drive. It lifted off smoothly and flew toward its destination.
"How #cozy," Mandy said. "What I'd…"
"Ssh!" Miss Clit said, cutting her off. "*He* was in here…"
The SkyJumper landed at a remote, rocky gorge. Miss Clit led the way down stone steps to a hot spring, a steaming pool of water that overflowed into a nearby mountain stream.
"Leave your clothes here," she said, beginning to strip.

TOEM is a cozy black-and-white hand-drawn photography isometric photography game.
It doesn't sound like much when described like that, but it's absolutely lovely, particularly when coming off a couple of days of horror games.
You wake up in your grandmother's house, on the day of going to see the TOEM. Not sure what the TOEM *is* exactly, but it appears to be a coming-of-age journey within this world.
You explore the game, and you're given quests which are things to find and take photos of.
That's it. That's the gameplay loop.
Within the game there are also collectibles, and cassettes which you can play in your in-game tape player.
It was exactly the tonic I needed yesterday, and a great wind-down game.
This may be obvious to some folks, but finding some #cozy or #silly #anime to watch does help with coping with #anxiety or #depression. Like for instance Restaurant from Another World is a #cooking anime that has fantasy characters and focuses on their issues and how food helps resolve it. If you’ve written off anime as a genre I would say give it a chance. There are so many different genres. Like try Spy x Family. It’s a masterpiece of the dynamics of a found family with exciting stories but so wholesome.
Have you heard of #cozy #fantasy novels? They are often low stakes stories about fantasy characters doing everyday things and folks like me love them. The flagship novel for cozy fantasy is Legends and Lattes by Travis Baldree. He mixes magical themes with found family in a way that is just such a great comfort read. There is a sequel coming you can find here https://us.macmillan.com/books/9781250886101/bookshops-bonedust if you haven’t read the first book I highly recommend it. #amreading #cozyfantasy
