I recently had it pointed out to me that I should do an #introductions post! So hi! I'm a clown, stiltwalker, juggler, musician, starting to work on some acrobatics, and I work for a #circus (circusfreaks.org) I have a BA in German, and am hoping to start practicing speaking with people more often in German. I was invited to come and try out Mastadon by @RussSharek@mastodon.cloud and have been enjoying it thus far.

She saw on TV that ghosts made things cold, and she'd always had chilly feet at night.
So she found a stone with a hole through the middle and she waited under the covers until the chill made her toes curl.
Gently, she sat up, closing one eye and holding the stone up to the other.
Shimmering and thin as a beam of moonlight, the cat stretched and resettled on her feet.
She smiled and went back to bed, careful not to kick.
She'd always wanted a cat.
A new Linux smartphone is coming!
With an affordable price, too. Pine64 is behind this device running KDE Plasma.
KDE Neon creator Jonathan Riddell revealed this at Open Source Summit and it will be called PinePhone.
You can expect this open source Linux smartphone to cost $100+ for 2GB RAM and 16GB storage.
Never forget: most of us have been poisoned by a toxic educational system that teaches us systematically that failing at a task or not knowing a correct answer is shameful.
There is no inherent shame in failure, in not knowing, or in being wrong, and we shouldn't actively shame others for it.
Get back up, learn something new, and try again.
#inktober today I was so motivated to sketch! and then I had to do groceries and when I went outside it became colder, and I am still a bit sick myself with a cold.. so I was standing in the cold wind trying to sketch.
this is our local lidl supermarket with a construction going on on the sidewalk and bikelane, a worker laying some pavement stones, and the faceless lidl building in the background. ok, this lidl is at least in an older building.
Fun fact: the earliest museum curator we know about was a woman, Princess Ennigaldi of Ur, whose museum catalogued artifacts from earlier Babylonian and surrounding cultures. Her father, King Nabonidus, was the first known archaeologist.
Ennigaldi, who lived in the mid-6th century BCE, meticulously labeled each item in her museum - in three languages! - and took great care to preserve them; some of her collection dated back at least 1500 years.
