I tried receiving reiki yesterday and had an amazing, healing and calming time. Anyone here have any experience with it?

NZ shooting 

I went to a vigil in Nashville to remember and mourn the lives taken in New Zealand. I met a Muslim single mom who is coming over to dinner soon with her son.

Thought I’d ask on here if anyone else has been to a vigil for the victims. If so I’d love to see your pictures, videos, stories etc.

I need to turn off auto play on my Liturgists RSS feed. I finished Hillary’s amazing Traveling Light meditation in a state of deep relaxation and was immediately jolted by the “in the year 2013” from the most recent Alien and the Robot. 😂😵

@audreyassad Well, I've made myself vulnerable in different threads and want to make sure I offer support back to anyone who expresses something in response to them.

So it's on my mind when I'm not on it, but that's a result of my own choices and actions and my care for others. So it feels personal and individual.

The interaction here is certainly better than twitter has been in a long time, if ever.

@audreyassad I come back to it daily for the intelligent adult conversation. (SAHM here 😁) but while other social media platforms leave me empty, my Liturgist community here fills me and inspires me. 💜

Would you say you feel Mastodon is less gamified than other social media platforms?

I can’t tell what I think, but I know I open it about every three days and don’t think about it in between.

Now that I have been on Mastodon for a bit I am REALLY wishing Twitter had this content warning feature. I want to tweet a lot more about Syria than I do, but sometimes content warnings are genuinely needed for those tweets and/or any related images.

Thanks for all the recs. I’ll be thinking of you while I mop my floors!

Show thread

I love The Good Place and Grace and Frankie and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Have also watched them multiple times (I love picking up on what I missed before) I am suddenly realizing how much tv I watch while i am doing chores. 😱

What do I need to watch if I’ve already watched Schitt’s Creek thrice, 30 Rock seven times and the Office somewhere around 5 times? I’ve also done this with Parks and Rec.

Tried Broad City out the other day and liked it.

Russian doll (spoilers possible) 

I had an anxiety attack during the second to last episode. Full blown. It was horrible.

The show, however, is an excellently told story. And full of actual surprises! I loved it

Soooo has anybody here watched Russian Doll?!

migrant issues / Facebook fundamentalists 

Nothing new is going to be said here. I am not even surprised. Just tired of hitting this wall with people endlessly.

migrant issues / Facebook fundamentalists 

Mastodon Liturgists Instance says yes.

I wrote a song about migrant mothers and babies being separated at the border. t.co/kBufLn0Ojg?amp=1

Predictably, Facebook responses include accusations that I don’t care about American children being safe, that migrant parents are “in it for the money”....which is honesty the most mind boggling of all responses to me.

I try but I just can’t understand how anybody reacts that way. Is empathy dead?

Show thread

So...is this where I go to toot out grief and anger about Twitter and Facebook reacting to my posts about migrants/refugees? Is there a separate instance for that? 😂😭😵

@roberttheiv @edalexwhite Robert, you have caught my drift exactly. It’s not that I’m not interested in deeper truth, it’s that I’m not threatened enough by someone’s disagreement to get defensive about it.
