"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.
My new website is live: http://kira.solar
It's basically the same content as before, but it's now powered by a little wiki engine I wrote from bash and nodejs scripts!
transitioned my website to the start of a digital garden to share my thoughts. inspired heavily by many sites on the webring from @neauoire
hope to join that list once i have time to write a few more posts
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.
🌲 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!
like when the state can't provide regular power, water and food, or provide ANY medical support
WHAT IS THE POINT OF IT
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 🌱
I love how hyper-local the FM radio news are up here. The whole morning news segment covered nothing but the time when the tide will turn, whale and bear sightings, the time that the food carry ship will reach the public dock, the vegetables that are expected to be ready for harvest this month - the birthday of a local fisherman.
Kiana Weltzien sails a 48 year old, 40-foot, epoxy plywood Wharram catamaran, Mara Noka, alone and more recently with a crew of two other women — Women and the Wind:
A couple of years ago she sailed her somewhat ‘agricultural’ vessel — e.g. a deck house roofed with corrugated tin — solo across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands to the Caribbean and shot an atmospheric if raw 26-minute film on her iPhone.
An understated video profile of a seagoing folk hero.
Nick Skeates, 72, has sailed around the world four times since the early '70s, in two small yachts. Wiley scavenger, skilled seaman, adept at living on the margins of, well, everything, he embraces, for the most part, an 18th century simplicity of means. Hell of a yacht designer, too.
Below: Skeates aboard his self-designed/built 32-foot, steel cutter, Wylo II and its galley built entirely of salvaged materials.
Une instance se voulant accueillante pour les personnes queers, féministes et anarchistes ainsi que pour leurs sympathisant·e·s. Nous sommes principalement francophones, mais vous êtes les bienvenu·e·s quelle que soit votre langue.
