“Growth is one of the stupidest purposes ever invented by any culture; we’ve got to have an enough. We should always ask ‘growth of what, and why, and for whom, and who pays the cost, and how long can it last, and what’s the cost to the planet, and how much is enough?’”

Donella Meadows via Kate Raworth

Donella Meadows was the environmental scientist who was the lead author on 1972 "The Limits to Growth" report for the Club or Rome.

my own physical boxed copy of my first published solo-dev game Soul of the Beast for the Atari 2600. I am a bit overwhelmed emotionally rn—

Web 3? No thank you. Web 1.0 please.
Electric cars? No thank you. Light rails, trains, and bikes, please.
Ever faster computing devices? No thank you. Cleaner, leaner, and more minimalist software, please.

"Climate activists in southern France have filled golf course holes with cement to protest against the exemption of golf greens from water bans amid the country's severe drought."

A very good point they have, as swathes of the region dry up.

It's been claimed by Extinction Rebellion Toulouse

@neauoire What really sucks about this is that governments are shifting towards this too. If you don't have the latest tech it's getting harder and harder to exercise basic civil and/or democratic rights.

Reading a lot of Junji Ito made me want to draw eldritch horrors again, now with better shading

Printed this month's print for my patreon print club last night, inspired by Hekate symbolism.

I've recently begun to encourage, with a good deal of discipline, my mind and energy to stay within the bounds of the present. To see things for exactly as they are and to exist entirely in the presence of my life as it is and not for what it might become. I think we get so wrapped up in a future-chasing illusion that we miss the part where we actually wholeheartedly live. This practice has been a tonic for the depths of my soul.

so close to finishing my digital garden website rewrite. trying to keep it as small as possible while still being a lovely place to keep my thoughts. hope to host it on a solar powered raspberry pi one day

#introduction
🌲 Hello Fediverse! 🌲

I'm Flynn / Meryl, I live in Scotland and I:
◦ make (photography, drawings, web dev, zines...)
◦ learn (design, IT, sustainability, social sciences...)
◦ exist (by growing plants, cooking, feeling queer, listening to music...)

All three interconnected, and generously sprinkled with sleep.

I am quite passionate about degrowth and low-tech, animals, and tea. Nice to meet you!

It's really nice to see everyone organizing and making plans to face what's coming. 🌻

It has been more than 10 years since I last had a job. If each of our cells is remade over the course of 7 years, then not a single cell of my body has known what working was like, I have a faint memory of hating the whole thing, but physically I've never worked.

Green skills are the knowledge and abilities needed to develop and support a sustainable and resource-efficient society, such as permaculture gardening, ecological construction, maintenance, recycling and renovation.

It doesn't sound like much, but I just pushed a new version of my personal website online. After more than a year of pause. My site generation system is up to date, I start updating my content 🌱

Glad to finally have a copy of Busy Doing Nothing for the bookshelf. lulu.com did a great job on the quality of the print as well.
