She's so cute when she's not busy being a butt.

"We must learn what the birds already know: Admitting you can’t do it alone, and leaning on those around you is not a weakness — it’s restoration."

Yes. This.

Self-care is great. But we really need to rethink our solo approach and focus more on community-care.
Exhausted and frazzled, we must look to the skies and draw on the wisdom of winged nature to rediscover a resilience in community and a reliance on one another. Sometimes it's not about leading, but drafting. With the insights of Rilke, a post on beauty in limitation, wisdom in rest, and resilience in dependence.

This is the kind of thing that gets my inner history nerd all geeked.
In the mid 19th century, New York City decided it needed a park. The city was growing fast, and everyone was conscious that this was one metric on which its rivals in Europe had the upper hand. In 1845, the editor of the New York Evening Post wrote a special Independence Day editorial, enviously praising Britain’s acres of parks, noting: "These parks have been called the lungs of London."

Finally, the book a friend wrote is available for purchase! I've been helping him a little with the social media work for it. It sounds like a funny book, with some :facepalms: mixed in.

Hello...first off, thank you Karen for mentioning the free day. There will be another free day (actually days) on April 1st and 2nd.  I would appreciate the support; I am confident that if you give the book the chance, you won't be disappointed...:)

Good morning. Sick Day No. 7. On the mend, but still spending much of my time in bed. Mostly trying to conform myself around these two bedhogs.

Here's your annual reminder that while Easter Lilies are quite lovely, they are toxic to cats.

Not all cats can go outside, for a number of reasons. 

Our cats get plenty of cat grass and other plants, though. 

And I've know several indoor-outdoor cats that eat houseplants.

If you're not following +Michael Frye, then I actually feel a bit sorry for you. If you were, your stream would regularly serve you up beautiful and awe-inspiring photos like this.
 
Oak Tree and Lunar Eclipse Sequence, December 2011

I captured this lunar eclipse sequence in the Sierra Nevada foothills during December of 2011. But another total lunar eclipse will be visible in western North America this Saturday morning, April 4th. To find out more about this upcoming eclipse and how to photograph it, see my latest blog post:

Doing a little end-of-month bookkeeping, and just wanted to remind you that SRPS has a Patreon page.

Of course you do not have to pledge, but your assistance helps me spend more time researching and writing. There are benefits for pledging, and I'm interested to get your feedback on how I might be able to improve them.

"In 1952, Norman Jolliffe, the director of New York's Bureau of Nutrition, warned doctors at the annual meeting of the American Public Health Association that 'a new plague, although an old disease, has arisen to smite us.' He estimated that 25 to 30 percent of the American population at the time was overweight or obese, a number he essentially made up. 'No one loves a fat girl except possibly a fat boy, and together they waddle through life with a roly-poly family,' wrote Paul Craig, a physician from Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1955. Craig was enthusing over a 1907 study that claimed 'gratifying results...on the problem of obesity' by putting people on 800-calories-a-day diets and dosing them liberally with amphetamines, phenobarbital, and methylcellulose. ...[M]edical experts believed that 'any level of thinness was healthier than being fat,' writes Nita Mary McKinley, a professor of psychology at the University of Washington, Tacoma. This attitude inspired a number of new treatments for obesity, including stereotactic surgery, also known as psychosurgery, which involved burning lesions into the hypothalamuses of people with 'gross obesity.' Jaw wiring was another invasive procedure that gained traction in the 1970s and 1980s."

Found on Shakesville, with this comment:
This is what is done to fat people under the auspices of "concern for our health." We are shamed, pathologized, mutilated, drugged, starved. By medical professionals.

Story
Introduction
Um... yeah... its me. I play games, and work in the garden, grow vegetables, dream up delicious recipes, go outside whenever possible, read lots, watch even more TV, and spend many, many (many) hours online. And sometimes, when the stars align, I even blog about these things.

I am a vocal advocate for the power of social media to build vibrant and vital communities, and spend much of my day online for my own projects and favored non-profits, as well as for paying clients. 

My degree is in Environmental Studies, with an emphasis on Outdoor Education and History. My goal is to find a way to combine my many diverse interests into one really awesome life. So far, so good.

Around the web, I am known as "itchbay" and the head princess of the Self-Rescuing Princess Society.
