The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea. – Isak Dinesen

sometimes the way to deal with the overwhelming horribleness is to do a thing about it • sometimes we need to take time to mourn • sometimes we just need to get away

note mostly to self: still gotta send the ACLU $20 & that'll be finished

but NOW i am sending all the donations from people buying my jewelry to the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico, which has their center right here in Albuquerque.

i wanted to support something smaller & more local than the ACLU; they're fine & all, & also they are already getting a zillion bucks from all over the country, basically they're doing p okay these days

but trans people? we're still getting thrown under the bus on the regular. i've heard too many stories this weekend about Pride stuff that stopped after the LG & forgot the BT, nevermind the Q, A, & everyone else. trans people still take way too much shit.

& the TGRCNM is RIGHT HERE. like they're having a nonbinary support group thing tomorrow night & i might go. they probably get like thirty-four cents in donations a month & what i might be able to scrape up for them is likely to make an actual difference. (okay I'm p sure they're getting more than than but even so.)

so today i did all the tedious editingstuff i needed to do to get that going (& now my eyes are sort of crossing, ow)

anyway if you want pretties made out of trash & shit & also want to support trans folk in New Mexico in a semi-direct sort of way y'all head over here, i'm tryna post a new piece every week or so, it'll be AWESOME

My friend [personal profile] sithjawa lives in southern California & does plant things, including growing seedlings & doing grafts of rare fruits. (I admit that I do not entirely understand this, you are probably best off looking at their posting.)

Which is here, where they offer to propagate treens and/or vines upon request. Basically, if you're in the southern CA area & like cool fruiting plants, go look at their post.

Ever tried to catch
a butterfly? It's a tricky thing;
so light, the least breeze or breath
wafts it away, up, down,
over there, where has it
gone, I see it! There! Perhaps
it will land, on a flower, on your hand,
on the page, to settle there;
perhaps it will float off,
caught in the least breeze,
the too-quickly taken breath.
But wait a moment, wait two,
perhaps the breeze will bring it round again.

electrolytes!

turns out they're sort of essential for actually functioning in a way that works.

many thanks to Steph who pointed this out, because this week Steph has the brain

i built a spinach salad the size of my FACE with also pine nuts, extra-sharp cheddar, red romaine, basil, tarragon, meyer lemon olive oil, & balsamic vinegar, all of which has the electrolytes, & then i eated it all, it was THE TASTIEST

& then just to be really sure i ate an entire bag of chips

things are better, i was still really tired yesterday but i think that is more to do with i walked a bunch & then there was a yard sale & then TEN SURPRISE PEOPLE at the house all afternoon GUYS THIS IS NOT COOL

so yeah drinking lots of water, watching electrolytes, this seems to be working. it is a good.

so tired

got home from the show Monday, it's Thursday, I'm still so tired I want to cry

i'm reminded of when i was living with my mom, & my sister asked why didn't i come into mom's trophy store to work during the week between weekend shows, because i didn't have anything going on those days

um

i ... have a job already?

which involves taking the weekdays to restock, tend the website, pack & ship orders, & yes, rest between shows?

but i guess none of that counts

(insert long rant about capitalism & Mammon here)

so before we could even leave for the event we hadda do something about the trailer, because it was in Pitlike Condition

there were shelfbits not being used so we Did a Thing

it is all organizey, i like that

the shelves sort of bent on the way to the event but didn’t actually fall over til we had it unloaded, so hey, that was pretty good

the site is very pretty & has TREES i like that part



photo by Dharma Fuller

also an obelisk, which, okay, i guess it’s an al-Barran thing



photo by Christian Brillante

this dude got a list-legal rattan banjo & also some twinkies, because THAT was perfect

(if this is a reference you do not get, you might enjoy watching Zombieland, it is low-scary & low-gross as zombie movies go)

i found a tiny moth

also there were of course cats, here is Obligatory Boys Snuggling On Bed Pic

Minion with Cat

Other Minion, with Other Cat



photo by Dharma Fuller

Other Other Minion, with Stubborn Stake & Most Excellent Expression ZOMG



photo by Dharma Fuller

admittedly the thing WAS pretty stuck



photo by Dharma Fuller

eventually we got the thing out (& by ‘we’ i mean ‘the minions’) & we finished packing & went home

as it turns out having minions means that at the end of the event, i am tired? but not entirely exhausted?

also that i am achy? but not in agony?

WHOA

(i know the shipping is ridic • i will figure out how to fix it • in the meantime i will refund you the ridic part • sorry about that)

I’ve always believed that all you need is one man to make a difference. To stand up when others are told to sit down. To speak loudly for those who have no voice. And to fight the good fight.”

$5 from this will go to the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico • trans people being kinda liminal & all • seemed appropriate


materials • i traded for the beads, with a friend of mine from Colorado

• the copper wire was gifted to me by my brother-in-law, who salvages it from the generators he repairs for a living


size • the entire piece is just about 4 1/2″ tall

• & about 2 1/4″ wide at its widest point

Fortunately they're good & bendy cos they're full of spring sap.

We got a good eight inches, though.

And Major Tom (long since recovered from his earlier excitement) has reoccupied his winter house for the duration of the blizzard.
