I made the classic mistake with Passover this year, of getting worked up and stressed about the practicalities of it instead of preparing spiritually. Actually it all went completely fine, but it wasn't until the last day of the festival, when all the organization was over, that I actually remembered to feel joy and celebration for being free.

contains religion )

Monday was just wonderful, though. That was when it really started to sink in that not only was I actually happy at being redeemed from slavery, but I am incredibly joyful and grateful to have such an excellent family. Both the ones I grew up with who are so great to celebrate Pesach with, and my family of choice who are incredibly supportive about joining in with my festivals and including me in theirs in a really respectful and non-pressurey way. We played D&D with [personal profile] jack GMing, something we've been meaning to do for ages and just not had time for, and it was really fun and relaxing.

Hello, internet! I'm Thea. Here I am in my favorite spot (somebody's lap):

Thea in my lap looking up at the camera sleepily

I'm a female dilute calico, and the vet and the vet dentist think I'm about five years old. I grew up on the streets of Baltimore, but it's cold and lonely out there and I like people too much, so now I need a forever home! I'm an absolute sweetheart who'll be in your lap or draped over your shoulder the minute I meet you, but there's one catch: I need to be an only cat.

More about me! And more pictures! )

Does it sound like you could be my human? If so, leave a comment with your email address, and the humans will get in touch with you. (Or, you can email [personal profile] synecdochic at synecdochic@dreamwidth.org.) Anonymous comments are allowed; you don't need a Dreamwidth account. I'm in Baltimore right now, and the humans would prefer somebody within a few hours' drive or somebody who's willing to come pick me up themselves, but if you're the absolute right person to take me in, they're willing to talk about flying me to you, especially if you can pay for some or all of the costs. (Having all my teeth pulled wasn't cheap!) [EDIT: The humans have a friend who might be able to put a flight on frequent flyer miles for me, so they're willing to escort me outside the immediate area for the right home!]

I'm looking forward to finding someone I can help with everything, drape on top of, and sleep on!

(Please share this with your friends! For the first round of looking we'd prefer not much further than friends-of-friends, because we'd like to know the people she's going to or know someone who knows them, but if the first efforts don't pan out, we'll try again with a wider reach. We also already know the rescue organization we'll turn to if we can't find her a home through word of mouth, so you don't need to research rescue options for us!)

here we go.

//NAME: rhienna

//AGE:
37.75

//INTERESTS & HOBBIES:
i like a lot of things, but getting things to completion is another story. i'm working on an illustrated tarot deck, maybe two books, a bunch of articles (that, let's be real, will probably end up being tinyletters, dreamwidth posts, or drunken arguments on my back porch), doodles for ideas, next year's halloween costume, a curated photo blog, learning video software so i can either get into short films or motion design. i just took a handlettering class and loved it. i'm kind of a master of none. additional interests that are less about what i make and more about what i consume/like: musicals, music, bike riding, wine tasting, film, pop culture, being near bodies of water, being very very nostalgic (why else would i be here?), travel, volunteerism, and a bunch of other stuff i'm spacing on. i work in tech, so i spend a lot of time thinking about our electronic legacy (and terms like "digital nomads" or "digital natives").

//LOOKING FOR:
people who post and read/comment, preference to folks close to my age who aren't basic and are feminists. i love travelers, professionals, queers, and creative folks, and occupy those spaces myself.

//ANYTHING ELSE?:
ten years of journal entries are imported via LJ here for my own personal record, but i am primarily looking to make new habits and continue writing. a clean slate. i have always loved making online friends: maintaining journals and penpals and personas defined me in the early online days and i guess i haven't completely outgrown it. these days i'm rusty and sometimes Too Busy to reliably post, but i believe that can/will change when i have a community (here) to return to.

[personal profile] spindle_ella in [community profile] addme
NAME: Dibs, Ella, whatever
AGE: 37
INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I make things; all the things (bookbinding, papercrafts, planners, spinning, knitting, dyeing, printmaking, painting, jewellery, resin, woodwork, baking, some stuff I've forgotten, if I haven't tried it I'll probably get around to it at some point...). Trying to get back into writing original fiction. Gardening, tea, reading, movies, myth & folklore & fairy tales, true-crime stuff (but I'm more interested in detectives than this 'let's talk to the killer!' thing), pokemon go, 80's music, music, free courses, idk blogging?
LOOKING FOR: my marbles. (seriously, though, just friendly peeps).
ANYTHING ELSE?: I have chronic pain issues and the mental health issues that come with; I try not to bitch about them too much, but it may happen, including med discussions and I know those are an issue for some people. Etsy just screwed me over royally, so my adventures in setting up elsewhere will probably be chronicled. Did I mention I make things?

I am in the phase of meds in which I have All The Energies -- and have been awake since about 6. In that time I have: paid bills; done a thorough review in Second Life of all the avatars who have been banned from the region where I am an admin, unbanned some who are no longer a threat or problem, and made a list of those banned by others about whom I have no details; prepared soup broth, made a large pot of barley with garlic, celery and carrots with it for breakfasts, and packaged into the freezer four boxes of leftover broth; planned out a letter that I am too lightheaded to write at the moment but will complete tomorrow when I'm not in such a hurryup mode; found the location of next weekend's Bead Bazaar so I can go; found out that Whole Foods opens at 7 am so I can get there very early on another early morning and not have to deal with a full parking lot (and get fresh sourdough bread.)

Also ate breakfast and lunch, went outside with Beautifulcat and adjusted the plastic covering the crack in the Folly so the current rain won't come in, coaxed her in, let her out again, coaxed her back in again.

And went through my usual five mailboxes of email. And posted twice to DW with links.

And it's only 2:25 pm.

I expect that when I am off these meds I'll probably sleep for most of a week.

Recorder

So the wonderful amazing [personal profile] ghoti_mhic_uait gave me a proper alto recorder as an afikoman present. I am slightly awkward about it because an actual musical instrument is a bit bigger than the sorts of things my family generally expect as Passover presents – it's a gift-giving occasion, yes, but it's not anything like on the scale of Christmas. But I am also really really happy, it's the most absolutely perfect present.

babbling about me and music )

And I'm allowed to play the recorder. Just like I learned with piano all those years ago, I don't have to be a brilliant performing soloist, I can just play because I want to. And with work, with amazingly satisfying work, better than any video game, I can get to the point where my playing sounds at least pleasant. But I do in fact want to focus on more social sorts of playing, not learning a bunch of sonatas to a mediocre standard.

So does anyone have any recs of social sorts of music? Melodies of songs, perhaps, or even something aimed directly for people who want to play recorder to accompany singers? The readthrough people have a songbook, right, with dots in? Would it be possible to obtain a copy? I'm happy to pay for music but I'm spoilt for choice so I need some ideas first. And I am somewhat interested in online tutorials though I think I can mostly learn fine just by practising pieces, cos it turns out I know how do that. I like baroque music a lot, and there happens to be quite a lot available for recorder, but I am not wedded to only playing baroque, any style is fine, and I'm quite positively interested in recorder versions of pop music, if that exists. (And if it's set for descant, well, all that rusty music theory means that I do in fact know how to transpose.)
