So, here's another thing from that #permaculture course.
"Categories of Resources:
Those which increase by modest use.
Those unaffected by use.
Those which disappear or degrade if not used.
Those reduced by use.
Those which pollute or destroy other resources if used."
And it's a good point on it's own, but I want to add: *resources aren't only physical.*
Time is a resource. health. energy. Executive function. Don't forget these and other important nonphysical resources!
I've been thinking a lot lately about how much BETTER I feel when I'm nonverbal. Like, if I just let myself be without trying to talk, it jsut feels right.

RT @CuilPress Okay, off the long thread earlier, (https://wandering.shop/@CuilPress/102326829311685301) we've been asked to talk about why someone might pick a small press over one of the big publishers.
The truth is that there is no one answer for this, *it depends on the press*.
To start with, I'm going to give some general observations, then I'm going to talk about Cuil specifically as an example.

Being frequently nonverbal has interfered with my saying kaddish for my mother.
Finally had idea go off, and googled.
There are videos of both kaddish and the Shema in #ASL . No idea how accurate the translations are, but frankly I don't care how bad they are right now because it's *something*.
So this is a thing!
