Good morning and Happy Easter to all my friends who celebrate. May the joy of the risen Christ bring you calm and comfort.

For my trans friends here, have a wonderful Trans Day of Visibility. No matter your situation, you are valid. You are loved. You matter.

I hope all my Fediverse friends have a joyful and lovely day today. And if you are not my friend yet, say hi. Maybe we can change that!

Trying for again:

  1. Kumquats and a yummy mini papaya granola bowl for breakfast.
  2. Quiet reading time on a Sunday evening. I'm still reading Jenny Colgan's Mure series.
  3. Watermelon and lemon-scented shower foam.

If you leave these unharmed--if you set your mind only to return--all of you may still reach Ithaka, though with much misery.
