Three shelves full of colorful, ceramic salt and pepper shakers, in the shape of rounded human beings, embrace each other in tight hugs. Red, yellow, blue, black, white, beige green, orange, brown, and purple... they grasp each other with extended arms, heads on each other's shoulders...

Well, today marks the one-year Mastodon Anniversary for @tomarciamae and me. In the past year our love and respect for those who are here and especially for those who make this space possible continues to grow.

So, if you're reading this: Thanks for you. I appreciate your boosts and your mentions and your likes, but mostly I wanted to say thanks for continuing to be in this sandbox with us. It wouldn't be the same without you.

#hugs #mastodonanniversary

@riversidebryan I am so glad someone said this mean thing to you because now we have a whole thread of Mastodonites who affirmed your efforts, and now we can see that kindness you've proliferated out 💙

It turns out that one person's toxic negativity only grows your non-toxic, environmentally friendly, biodegradable, ethical, fair-trade, responsibly sourced, sustainable (that's the opposite of toxic) positivity more powerful! 🔥

Keep being you Bryan 🥰 #hugs

Good Monday Morning!
I hope this message finds you well rested and prepared to take on the week. I know that we all wish we could have a longer weekend, but the week has so many opportunities in store for us! Let's get out there and seize them and make the day, the week, and the month ours.
If you have been struggling, I want you to know you are not alone out there. We see you, and we understand that things can be hard time to time. Remember to take the time for some self care and to restore your mind and body. No one is superman except Klark Kent, so take things at whatever pace you can handle and remember you are doing great.

This image is a close-up of part of one of our hugging spot chalk art designs. This one is at our old Free Hugs spot. The design features a large circle in different colours, and within the circle are two sets of footprints and the words Hug Here. Attached to the circle on both sides are identical hopscotch patterns with the word Start at the beginning of each one. Two people are encouraged to start at the same time and hopscotch their way into the middle for a hug.

Marcia and our grandson are sharing a hug in the circle, just to prove it works!!

In #Mannheim, "smart" #AI surveillance cameras should reduce crime. However, they report friendly #hugs as attacks; not really helpful. On the other hand, the additional #surveillance apparently ignores police brutality.

The benefits are unclear, the survey used to motivate the cameras has systematic problems and actually pointed to entire different problems citizens wanted the city to solve.

Good morning my lovely friends. How are you doing? I had a long hard day at work yesterday, after not sleeping the night before and having to stand on my sore foot. But I got some sleep last night and I have nothing I need to do today, so I’m sitting on the couch with my foot up and a duvet. I have coffee. I have water. I have my phone and a book. All is good. Sending you hugs and wishing you the best day. #NZTwits #ChronicIllness #ItsEarly #Hugs #Reading #StephenKing

In the silence that now fell into the room, all he could hear was her sobbing. It broke his heart to see her so desperate, but he was paralyzed, caught between two options, both wrong.
“You have no idea.”
He finally heard her whisper between sobs.
“Right. I haven’t.”
He hesitantly took a step closer.
She turned around, a handkerchief in hand, desperately trying to dry the tears that kept flowing.
“But you could just try and tell me. Perhaps I would understand.” 
She shook her head.
“Some things don’t have a solution, Hare. Sometimes, there is nothing you can do about a situation. But sometimes, a hug can go a long way. Because it says more than words.” 
He heard Aretha say.
Well, he couldn’t make it any worse, could he?
He opened his arms.
“Okay, then. No questions asked. Hug?”
Like in slow motion, she came towards him, hesitantly lifted her arms as if she had forgotten how hugging worked.
He waited.
Patiently.
Hers to decide whether she trusted him or not.
Finally, her arms found their way around his middle, and she rested her head against his chest.
Only now he closed his arms around her.
For a moment, there was silence.
Then, a shiver ran through her body and she started to cry.
Violently.
She sobbed, and shivered, and sniveled, and wailed, and there wouldn’t have missed much, and Galahad would have cried along because it sounded so desperate and lost.
“Shhhh, it is okay,” he said, at a loss of what else to say. “It is going to be alright. All is going to be alright, again.”

Ok folks, limiting mastodon.social until they sort out the spammers. It won't affect any of your follows or followers, it only limits folks who don't follow any of us from interacting here, and it's easily reversable once this spam wave is over.

Its about time I redo my #introduction on this server!

My name is Noémi, 43 yrs old, discovered I was #trans less than 2 yrs ago and as of Dec 2022 I've been on HRT for 1 year.

I like #game, #anime, #ttrpg and #scifi, among many other subjects!

I am #pansexual, #polyamorous and a #relationshipanarchist.

#kinky, #openminded and #sexpositive, I proudly tell I'm #bottom and #sub when asked.

Love when people #geek out about something.
No such thing as too much #hugs and #cuddles.

This is a photo of me, taken right after a visit to my hair stylist.
