Being my grandma was born in 1919 she was probably 10 or 11 when the needlepoint was made.
Updating this again.
Hi everyone, I'm a Blind, and gay, writer and reader that doesn’t talk verbally a lot to people because I stutter. I'm some flavor of human that's always growing and evolving. I roll my eyes at people that use Liberals and Neoliberal like a gotcha. It's not good praxis. Basically,
I care more about progress than labels. I also care very much about harm reduction when any Revolution is discussed. I value progress, progression, advancement, and actual empathy. Not empathy just to get more social media likes.
I'm disabled, and honestly can't stand the entire online left. I am offline more than I am online, reading, writing, playing audio games and even video games. I also recently started streaming, too. More importantly, I detest the non-disabled social media spaces. There are far better things I do with my time. I value art over any form of social media. I believe art, of any form, can teach me more about social justice than listening to people on any social media platform. Now, on to the fun stuff!
I love cats, especially union organizing cats like Jorts (and Jean) I love reading. I love most books people would find ghastly, like Flowers in the Attic, but I also love romances and Young Adult books. I read all banned books no matter who bans them. The only genre I just can't connect with is Westerns.
I hate all forms of crypto, no matter if you're left wing.
I'm a literary activist and a Disabled activist. I blog a lot about many long form opinions or thoughts I have. I cry of utter joy when people hug in books.
I'm also sex repulsed so don't write sex in my fiction, but I fully support sex work. I love almost any cookie, and love cats in books along with fan fiction.
I use IFTTT so I can take extended social media breaks and still post blog updates to all social networks without me logging on for a month or more. For a reason why, see https://blindjournalist.wordpress.com/2021/10/11/different-literary-activism/
You can get an overview of my website here https://blindjournalist.wordpress.com/map/
My main RSS feed is at https://blindjournalist.wordpress.com/feed/
Ultimately, I believe in every social justice fight because that eliminates all forms of oppression but especially Disability injustice because everything is Disability related.
Lastly, I read and write fan fiction, in addition to blogs. I love fiction podcasts and listening to fan fiction podfics.

Deep dive into my kitchen floor:
POTS book question
are there any books about #pots out there? I tried to search in the library and a online bookshop but all I'm getting from their search engines is books about potty training and pots (for plants or cooking or whatever).
Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?
Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩
I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!
