nevermind its not gonna map followers automatically (dunno why i thought it did). find me at https://merveilles.town/@abundance and thank you again
hello! i just moved over here from friend.camp and wanted to briefly introduce myself. i'm everest- i'm an artist working in software and games, and on paper making drawings. you can find my work at everest-pipkin.com
i'm non-binary and use they/them pronouns.
right now i'm traveling for opportunities full-time and not based anywhere, but i'm originally from rural texas (and i usually i remember to update my profile with where currently i am).
looking forward to being here--
hiya-- i'm gonna migrate this account over to merveilles.town to focus more on projects and creative work, and rejoin friend.camp on locked for friends/life stuff. if you wanna keep up w me for studio things you don't have to do anything! but if we're close and you wanna hear about my cat, and feelings, look for me again
@abundance to be clear, i’m a pretty dang easy cry
here's a church nearby in the process of being totally rebuilt. i love maps a lot and i enjoy exploring places in this way. it's just a shame that this massive beautiful 3D dataset is owned by a corporation. https://www.openstreetmap.org is great for 2D maps though and you should use it!

is it appropriate to mourn your block ? the trees in that coated your car in leaves ? the corner where you caught the bus ? they're all on the news rn, but only as a backdrop for the real fucking pain which has happened there- which isn't mine. idk. its heartbreaking in the big way that this always is in this horrible country, but steeped in these abstract feelings of home also

i dunno how to appropriately handle being close to, but not at all involved in, these moments of domestic horror
i lived right down the block from tree of life when i was first in pittsburgh and i feel rly close to that space as a building or signifier- but it was never my community? i never went to temple there (bc i never go to temple) and, idk, mourning when only adjacent is, weirdly lonely?
it feels like i should be outraged and helping somehow- but i'm just sad instead
an old account!
