My apologies if this has already been discussed, but does anyone know when the third instalment of the Buddhist series will be on Patreon? @mike? @vishnu?

@Jason_Chadney @Jonpenner @mike fellow Canadians @VeRtiOs and I will also be in LA first week of May, and would LOVE to get in on an unofficial Lit hang!

Anyone from LA here? Heading there for May 6th and we are asking for some tips for a proper LA experience. Where to stay, what to do, etc. Thanks!

I love these comics from Nathan Pyle, feels very TAATR. Feels like a neurodiverse re-rendering of a lot of social mores @mike @vishnu

All About Love Chapter 11 

This chapter was an emotional read for me. My father died suddenly/unexpectedly a few years ago and it was devastating to the family, and it broke me to my core for some time. From that time on I’ve done a lot of thinking about death, and have a complicated relationship with it. Reading this chapter freed me a little and gave me some space to reflect on death in a different way. I don’t have much else to say about it. I’m glad I read this book.

Tonight I want to share with you all my newest pieces of string art. This first one is inspired by @vishnu 's book, and basically his entire perspective on life that has inspired me so much since losing my Christian faith. Oneness has been a bit of a tough idea for me to wrap my head around, but I've been envisioning interconnectedness. This piece speaks to the multitudes of unique lives that seem so different and separate, but, stepping back, create a messy, wonderful masterpiece.

They can do this for a long time.

Lice 

My daughter got lice from somewhere (likely daycare) which means we’re spending the evening doing Nix treatments and cleaning the bedding, stuffies, and jackets. Perfect way to spend a Friday evening. 😭

I have an extra ticket for the tour date this Friday the 22nd of February. This show features The Brilliance, Gungor, and Propaganda. The venue is The Loft at Center Stage in Atlanta, Ga. Doors open at 7 pm show starts at 8pm.

I would love to give this ticket to a deserving fellow

I don’t know what number I am in the enneagram but while listening to AATR and nodding hard to @mike love of The Rock makes me think maybe I have some 9 tendencies. I’ve always been shy of my love for Rock movies. NO MORE!

I’ve been noticing after some folks names there is a word with “: :” around it. Would someone be willing to fix my ignorance?

So my wife and I purchased some tickets to the end of the world tour concert in LA. I am so excited and I get emotional thinking about watching Gungors final show along with Prop and The Brilliance. We’re from small city Saskatchewan Canada and would love to meet some folks there as we rarely travel (work, kids, etc). Maybe this is weird for me to ask but do you think there will be some kind of meetup there?

So there's this absolute scumbag in North Carolina who hates gay people, and also happens to be blind.

In the last few days I've seen a ton of people mock him for not looking at cameras, or 'the weird way he moves his eyes.' It's a textbook example of why focusing criticism on someone's physical traits is never a good idea.

Most folks I've pointed this out to are suitably chagrined, and I appreciate them <3. A few try to defend themselves. He's a scumbag, so there's no holes barred on insulting him, right? No.

When we mock a bad person for being blind, or fat, or trans, we're telling everyone with those traits that we secretly think they're less than wholly human. Maybe we won't admit it so long they remain "good," but we've admitted that it's there under the surface.

@vishnu Forget This. Start a mom and son podcast where you are still basically doing This but she’s with you as the peanut gallery. Also thanks for adding the bonus material to Free Will episode.

I finally did it. I deleted both my Instagram and FB accounts. I downloaded the data, then said goodbye. I let it consume me for so long, I’m not sure how I’ll cope/react. I think there will be a mourning period before I really start to experience the benefits of not being on Instagram.

The days are getting long enough now that I can catch the sunset from my backyard. February has been cold but the sun is higher, brighter, and feels nice and warm through the window. Happy Wednesday, everyone.

So when does one know they are becoming/growing/progressing and when they have strayed from who they are/could be? The reason I ask is because I’ve changed so much since my 20s, I feel like I have a different personality. Maybe life’s challenges have derailed me, or maybe my personality was always supposed to be an asshole and I’m just growing into that. 😊
