Gardening, Flowers 

I am working on turning my previously gravel front and back yard into gardens for the birds and bees (and Maple dogs). It's been really fun to learn about all the plants in Oregon and the Xera Nursery website is a treasure.

These Oregon Beach Daisies are the only plant I got in time to bloom so I spend a lot of time enjoying them. xeraplants.com/plants/erigeron

Joe Hand boosted

I am hiring a product manager for platforms and architecture for the City of San Francisco's digital team. It's a union job in a team that is supportive and kind. Please boost!

Gardening, Trees 

And I will be picking up a free tree tomorrow! That will make 3 trees planted so far (5 if you count vine maples).

It may be too late to get them this year but for those in Portland, keep an eye out next year if you want a free yard tree. portland.gov/trees/tree-planti

Feeling entirely spent after two days of conferencing. How to recover? Reading about why I feel this way of course

Been reading the Age of Anger, after finding the authors article on modern masculinity extremely on point theguardian.com/books/2018/mar. So far a very interesting history of anger and hierarchy.

"the German thinker Max Stirner argued ... that the impersonal rationality of power and government had disguised itself in the emollient language of freedom and equality, and the individual, ostensible liberated from traditional bods, had been freshly enslaved by the modern state."

book quote 

"Each person has a set of beliefs with which they move through the world. These are formed by their cultural, social, economic, and environmental (amongst others) experiences from birth, and they change as more experiences are added to the whole. A group joins their beliefs together creating a set of named or unnamed ways in which they operate."
