Jess Mahler

Jess has spent several years pulling together a family-of-choice from across the country. The family hopes to settle in the Appalachians where Jess’ heart has been rooted for as long as she can remember.
Health issues keep her from taking a active role in tikkun olam so she writes to spread ideas and explore different ways of living and being.
Jess has 15 years in polyam relationships. As an autistic autodidact, you never know when she’ll pull an odd bit of knowledge out of her back pocket.

D&D lets you live out all kinds of fantasies, such as:
-Having everyone call you by your preferred name and gender
-Having a big group of friends who do everything together
-Making a reasonable wage as a freelancer
-Being able to murder the terrible leadership of your country
-Getting 8 hours of sleep

Morning all.

I overdid it badly yesterday, but for once I overdid it physically rather than mentally.

My knees are, um, not happy with me. Nope. Not at all.


Need to find the hot pad...

How are you doing today?

Jess Mahler @emsenn Exactly!

Jess Mahler @emsenn I think if I knew of a few other folks who'd be interested it would be easier. BUt I don't really know anyone here well except our neighbor, who is too disabled to work a garden.

Which just highlights how much we need the community-building benefits here...

Jess Mahler @emsenn Gah!

That's... a lot of space.

I normally don't write in the afternoon, but I have a bit of extra time and energy, so going to see how this goes...

Morning all.

I almost always end up arguing a middle ground in polyam discussions. not because I necessarily want to or think the middle ground is 'right'.

But because most such discussions end with one side going "I'm right!" and the other side going "I'm right!" And I usually end up at "I agree with side 1, but there isn't a universal right or wrong and for some people side 2 will be right, so can we..."

Saved by cranky kids

Yes, this is a sort of subtoot. Nothing on fedi.
