I find my fuse on here growing shorter and shorter with each passing month, my use of the block button more and more liberal. And that's okay. Reminder: you have no obligation to tolerate the presence of those who irk you.

James Tissot's "Room Overlooking the Harbour" is a pleasantly atmospheric vision, a girl with a certain prim and luscious vibe to her looking like she's planning something: boarding one of those ships to parts unknown?

Mercury collides with Earth, making a Rocheworld in a comet-like orbit with seven moons in tow, tides of Miller's Planet proportions. Ooh...

If I were the federal Democrats I'd have a wake tonight outside the Supreme Court building; torches, bonfires, a tower of light, speeches all night, and a roundtable at the steps with an empty chair for any conservative justice with enough guts to come there and talk mano-a-mano.

Edward Burne-Jones's "Love Among the Ruins" might not be the most vivid vision, but it has a strong sense of atmosphere; the fair maiden's pose is striking, as is her man's.

Biden's speech was a sad sight to behold, something between a wail of outrage and a eulogy for the right to abortion. His only strategy amounts to "vote harder". Sorry, but that's just not good enough. Roe vs Wade was literally just overturned under a Democratic trifecta. 🤦‍♀️

Nothing to see here, just your average everyday conservative who thinks forcing women to drown in their own blood is *funny*. I get these sort of replies all the time from rightists; sadism seems to be core to the conservative character, the sole animus behind their politics.

A world without Roe versus Wade is here. I offer some thoughts, and a warplan for liberals. In short: scorch the earth.

Just switch jobs, just buy an electric car, just move closer (where housing is double what you can afford...), just don't travel, just buzz off and die. After all, it's just a minor inconvenience.
I detect revelry at our suffering from these people.

No, Twitter, I don't think I'd like "Gays Against Groomers". 🙄 Looking through its posts, it's obviously a front for conservatives and QAnon cultists, but the very existence of such an account might be a sign the ever-disgusting "grooming" discourse has peaked...I hope.

Whatever one thinks of this girl's conduct, why make an issue of her nationality? I'm unendingly disgusted and astonished by just how xenophobic people are. Do people like this even realize their racist bigotry, or are they aware of it and just don't care?

A trip to the gym, a few fun movies, and looking over my finances and finding out I'm a bit richer than I thought has me feeling better, and has revealed the real issue: heat lethargy. I think I feel sad because I'm *tired*. Frustratingly, however, I'm not at all sleepy. 😔

This is my piece "Baby blue nebula", showing a woman reveling in future motherhood as she drinks in the gaze of deep space far from the ancestral homeworld.

It might be how sad I feel today, but I get a heavy mood from George Roux's "Spirite"; airy and almost whimsical, but with a sense of loss from a better time long ago that was filled with happy pretty people.

People talk about "sudden adult death syndrome" like it's some brand new thing, but years before COVID-19 my own father just dropped dead suddenly for no apparent reason. They may well be on the rise, but such deaths have always been much more common than most people think.

Charles Edward Perugini's "A Summer Shower" shows three darlings under a tree hiding from the rain, looking displeased but still adorable in that uniquely feminine way.

Now brainstorming: a story like "The Naked Jungle" (a.k.a. "Leiningen versus the Ants") in space. Oh yes, that could be awesome...
