From a Saturday long ago.

This little guy was such a ham! I'm almost certain he knew what I wanted because he made his way down from a high perch (it was a...long wait) to pose for me upside down.

In the centre of waiting, uncertainty & transition, it’s easy to feel frustrated & trapped. This card reminds me there are gifts in every situation. Reflection happens inside pauses. Ideas bloom in times of rest. Whether we are in the Middle Space due to choice or circumstance… there are gifts there. There are gifts everywhere. 🌿

Card is from my Everybody’s #Tarot.
Also shown is a work in progress, a #pyrography piece on some live edge ash.

#magic #MastoArt #art #artist #tarotcard #sloth

A pink tarot card is laid on a piece of wood. The card has a simple bright pink background. On it, a cartoon style sloth, with a little smile, hangs from a branch but holds a bottle of water with a free hand. He’s happy. The card says The Hanged Man at the bottom. The piece of wood under the card is pale ash, with intricate, swirly, leafy patterns on the sides.

The fur of Costa Rican sloths appears to harbor antibiotic-producing bacteria that scientists hope may hold a solution to the growing problem of "superbugs" resistant to humanity's dwindling arsenal of drugs. #sloths #antibiotics #bacteria #medicine #sloth #CostaRica

The #sloth image I just shared reminds me - as wonderful as sloths are - I don't have ANY coins featuring them. A quick look on Numista reveals only six, all non-circulating silver (& one platinum). I think my favourite of those is the 2020 #Nuie dollar 1oz coin.

Last week we learned what one does when first arriving on the moon, which is eat and flail around apparently

Wenn ein Faultier zu spät kommt, ist das nicht weiter verwunderlich!
Übrigens ist nach neuesten Erkenntnissen namhafter Zoologen das Faultier weltweit auf allen Kontinenten und in allen Ländern zu finden!

Ein Faultier hängt an seinen Krallen unter einem Ast, wobei es freundlich lächelnd einen Cocktail, der auf einem Tablett, das auf dem Bauch des Faultiers abgestellt ist, durch einen Trinkhalm schlürft, während eine Schnecke, die auf dem Kopf des Faultiers sitzt, das gleiche tut (sorry für den Bandwurmsatz! Ich konnte nicht widerstehen!).

If February was a #tarot card indeed. Waiting. Being stuck (suspended) in a situation you want out of. The movement-free period of biding your time and seeing things from a different perspective, before the next steps come. Maybe take care of yourself a bit when you’re in this stage, too.

Taken from my Everybody’s Tarot deck, which is is my shop. Feeling this #card a lot right now.

A tarot card from Everybody’s Tarot, which I designed. A simple card is on the left, a white feather to the right. The card has a bright pink background and a tree branch popping into view from the side. A happy sloth is hanging upside down from it, with one arm held out and a water bottle in it. It says The Hanged Man at the bottom.

As he boarded, Revin held back tears when he was cheered by his former pirate comrades, now wearing uniforms of Havelock. And was overwhelmed by nostalgia as the Queen lifted off for Campshire. During his return from Devishire, he'd mostly been unconscious. He experienced a feeling of #sloth to see a young man standing in the observation deck ready to flash signals if another airship was spotted.
"I guess I'll head to my bunk," Revin said.
"Don't forget—you're in the VIP cabin now."

actually the more I think about this the more I like the idea of the whole trash magic network being about dumps, and using the word "dump" to mean lots of things.

In my old job I worked on a project code named "sloth" and we had a weekly "sloth dump". Sloths take a dump once a week or so. So this dumping of knowledge was supposed to be like #sloth poop. I think I want to adopt that. I go take a dump in the park by depositing self-replicating geometry made from trash. #trashMagic

@everywhereist In relation to other furry animals the sloth is also special bc its fur grows in the unusual direction from womb to back, so that (rain)water doesn't collect on the sloth and it stays comfortable dry.

Let’s do a proper #introduction. I am Slothdude, a hobbyist #sloth #artist. I used to draw sloths on an app called #DrawQuest until it shut down, and then for a while drew sloth portraits of people on another app called French Girls until that shut down, too. Now I draw sloths wherever I can, usually with an iPad app #Procreate. I do slothified versions of fine #art as well as cartoons and #fanart. I am also a #lego enthusiast.
