i think i need an external nudge that gives me a sense of direction without forcing me into hard situations without my consent, and maybe someone else's reading is what i'd like?
if you'd be willing to do a free tarot reading (can be a small one for sure) for someone stuck with their own interpretations and at life, please hmu?
before i go off the grid, though, i'm thinking of taking up reading as a more mindful activity to invest my time on. I wanted to ask y'all for book recs, like, the four books that you'd most recommend to any person in the world (or me in particular, if you know me)
i'm mostly into poetry and non-fiction but all is good. please help with recs and/or a ?
im here to tell you i'm going off the grid for an indefinite amount of time. while i'm not a frequent poster, i do spend a ridiculous amount of lurking on the fediverse, and the possibility of saying things shapes my way of interacting with the world and makes it performative, i become dissociated from my own acts and it's having very dire consequences for my mental health
so, i've decided to give myself a break. i'll be gone for at least a month, but if this goes well, it might go on for longer, just a heads-up
i love you all, take care
like my followers-only toots were talking about, i've been feeling pretty spiritual in the past few days, and i want to hone my intuition and insight while the kick lasts, so:
i'm offering free tarot readings to anyone who wants one, any questions, any spreads
if you want to boost or link to someone you think might be interested, you're super welcome to :)
i should save this for #MascMonday, but it's probably already monday somewhere and my hair is doing the lil flip so fuck it

lip manegio's "the first poem about churches that didn't hurt" is honestly one of the most beautiful slam poems i have ever heard, and it makes my body thrum with ecstasy
looking for fediversian league players that aren't assholes,
do you play league of legends or would like to learn how to? presumably, you're already on the fediverse since you're seeing this?
i'm a relatively new player who really enjoys the game but keeps running into assholes in PvP games, and i think it would be nice to find others who enjoy the game and prefer having fun over Constant, All-Encompassing Anger at Randos on the Interwebs.
if you play in general (or play in EUW in particular) or are interested in starting and don't mind playing in a team, hit me up!
hello, gentle town has risen from its ashes and is looking for new members!
✔️ we're hosted on a raspberry pi, which means ⬇️ energy costs and expenses
✔️ we have local-only posting and exclusive lists courtesy of the hometown fork
❗ this set-up makes the instance a bit unstable, which often ends in unannounced downtime

the small stuff
i like tabletop RPGs, although i'm fairly new to them and have only played #DnD regularly :d20:
the internet has introduced me to many, many things and so i've been part of many fandoms throughout the years, but i keep coming back to #GoodOmens and #Homestuck, which have been my favorite pieces of media in the past decade
I also love #linguistics, esp those of sign languages, latin and ancient greek and current colloquialisms
i'm izzy, and i run the instance https://gentle.town; i'm a former philosophy student that has gotten into tech and nowadays spends most of the time fiddling with sysadmin stuff.
i'm a big fan of visual arts, both as an audience and as a maker. i love discovering new places, poetry, and mythologies in a broad sense of the word.
i like to post and read about the smaller things in life that make it worth living.

Gentle Town is a generalistic Mastodon instance that believes in the sustainable model of anticapitalist degrowth. We are a small, friendly community that aspires to be a place to rest for travelers of the Fediverse, somewhere people can sit down, look up at the stars and discover new constellations.
