In the Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain traditions, today is a day for honoring those whose light removes the darkness, who help us find the unconditional love that lives within and around us. Happy Guru Purnima, friends. Gratitude to all of life’s teachers.

(PS - it’s a lunar holiday, so it falls on different days around this time of year.)

@unsuspicious @anarchiv oh yeah I've read the shortened version of that I think, that Arendt essay is a classic.

Part of what it shows is that it's much more important to evaluate power structures than the actions and motivations of individuals. Its effect is minimal compared to the economic and political systems that make certain people (such as Eichmann) more prominent and powerful than others.

Today is the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11, the first mission to land humans on the Moon. They launched at 9:32 AM local time - so, in about three hours.

You can follow the entire mission, from now until splashdown, in “real time” as it happened 50 years ago, here: apolloinrealtime.org/11/

What's your gender?
Mycological.
Wh-hat?
It's a massive system of networks made up of a bunch of smaller, simpler genders. It's actually a very important niche in the gender system, as it helps connect and support other genders.

I think the #nonbinary for auntie and uncle should be entie because I want to be old, huge, full of wisdom, and calm and dignified (i.e. slow as hell).

My favorite thing about going to gay bars is that it reminds me that people were gay before me and they will be gay after me. No matter how many times people say weird shit about the trendiness of sexuality or gender or whatever you can say no! Here is this space that I can physically enter and touch the walls and feel the queer energy pulsing through the walls deeply, deeply.

People fell in love here and broke up here and fell into bed here. People broke hearts here and cheated here and made deep and lasting friendships here. People organized here and rallied here and cried here and built community here. And you can feel it when you press your palm against the wall and breath in. You can, you can, you will.

It's something we have to practice all through life.

You haven’t met yourself yet.
But occasionally you’ll meet someone who reveals a little of yourself to you.

Can we talk a moment about Stentors and how they can get so big you can see them with the naked eye and also sometimes can host entire colonies of symbiotic algae that produce some sugars in exchange for protection from predators?
