This hummingbird gets me.

The world’s still on fire and everything’s going to hell but here I am, doing my best to keep on keeping on, you know?

I’ve been doing work around the house–I made my art space pretty!–and I’ve done a lot of organizing and we are getting landscaping done with is so exciting! I’m going to have hydrangeas and a lilac and a pollinator garden in the front and I’m hoping to get two trees planted in the front next month (an Eastern Redbud and a Japanese maple) and the horror that is the right side yard will be tamed once and for all with the removal of everything but the azaleas and the addition of grass seed so all we’ll need to do is mow and maaaaaybe trim the azaleas so they look slightly less scraggly (after they bloom).

And I know that making a garden doesn’t actually fix the broken bits of the world, but it’s something I have some control over and that is no small thing.

Make a Suggestion for the Links Roundup!

I feel like we’re all sort of fumbling in the fog, trying to find out way out of what is going to be the worst mass disabling event of our lifetimes–and as I’ve found out over the past almost-four years, there is no way out, there is only through and there is no end. Therefore, I give you a few waypoints that may help you on your journey.
