One of my clients screamed at me today- I know it had nothing to do with me and I usually have thick skin but I was really rattled today. Also he is essentially the town drunk but sober for 6 months and I’m so full of hope and fear for him.

@Ricci @JosiahRA I think there are a lot of parallels to that disaster and the environmental crisis as well. Everyone trying to maintain and not acknowledge how big of a problem it is

@JosiahRA it’s kind of horrifying - watching everyone get severe radiation poisoning- it’s really fascinating though

Is Anyone else watching the Chernobyl miniseries? It’s SO good. I love how they show the fucked-up-Edness of the Soviet Union but also the dignity and pride of the people.

@Melissa yeah- it’s funny but also not funny - though we’ve had a lot of talks and things have improved.

@Heath that’s terrible. I know Maine is putting caseworkers in hotels with kids

I basically have two speeds with my boyfriend 1. I love him more than life itself and look forward to carrying our babies and spending our lives together 2. I’m going to leave him because he does not pull his weight with housecleaning

@Krismsheedy hiking is the best. I talked to my supervisor and she is letting me do some paperwork from home which has been helpful.

@RobertFrancis I voted other but I also want to state that my boyfriends bathroom was disgusting before I moved in and he still keeps old apple cores in his car. So I wouldn’t 100 agree that women civilize men- but also kinda yeah

I work with homeless people who struggle with addiction and mental health issues... and i’m So burnt out. Lately I can’t stand my clients and I just want to yell at them. I feel really ashamed of being so upset with such vulnerable people. I’ve had burn out before - but never this bad. I’m just not really sure what to do- I don’t have any time I can take off

Dying earth gloom 

@riayngrey I take nettle capsules year round and they tend to keep me ok- the only bad part is it takes weeks to build up in your system

Since college this Wendell Berry poem has been what I reflect on around Easter. I’m hoping to find ways to practice resurrection this season but what come keeps coming to mind is that before things can resurrect - they need to die.

As soon as the generals and the politicos
can predict the motions of your mind,
lose it. Leave it as a sign
to mark the false trail, the way
you didn’t go. Be like the fox
who makes more tracks than necessary,
some in the wrong direction.
Practice resurrection.

I’ve always loved Easter- the idea of resurrection really resonates with me but church services with everyone wearing pastel dresses and passing out candy does not really resonate. I’m wondering if anyone has some alternative ideas for celebrating. I just want to honor the theme of what was dead coming back to life.

@Abbie haha. People used to say to use anger to fuel your run and I can convince myself anything i’m Angry about it not a big deal #9 too. Running in the woods works for me

@emkem I hear you there. So refreshing to hear people present ideas without dogma

I have an earache, a fever, and swollen tonsils- also I work in shelter and get exposed to a really unexpected amount of feces. Is this the flu? Or some mutant strain of torture?
