Please help restore 14 acres of landfill and revitalize a neglected community. This is where I practice, but this project goes beyond our sangha.  #dharmarain   #plantingzen

So, basically, I don't want to be in an argument with a friend about what I think is a pretty non-controversial statement. I just don't think there's anything misleading (or even surprising) about saying the area in which that land is located has issues that include poverty and crime. Nor do I think it's misleading to say that people in the surrounding areas are affected by that, despite their lack of chain link fences.

If you disagree, and it seems that you do, it's probably not the right project for you to donate to, and of course that's completely fine.

It's like a gaming Meyers-Briggs, kinda. I love this stuff. I spend altogether too much time thinking about my relationship to games and the meaning of gaming, I guess.

OK, this FFXIV expac is the jankiest damn upgrade process I've been through. And I'm not even sure I'm done.

ALSO: My main character is now not listed in my Lodestone or Mog Station accounts. I assume this has to do with the expac, but I'm getting kind of cranky about how involved this seems to be!
