Actually worked a bit on the Writey Thing for the first time, I think, since April.

I somehow drabbled. This is pure setting-background scenery-brainstorming sense-detail, came out in second person for no particular reason, dunno if it will be in the story, but I have got to be writing on the regular, I need that habit and that mode of expression. I'll take it.

Mentions food, wilderness. Here it is.

I don't have anything very coherent to say about the Fourth of July and what it means and has meant to me any why it is different for me this year and not-different for some other people and what else I'm thinking of because of that. So I'll let some friends have their say instead.

Babbling...I need to remember that the founding of the United States was definitely NOT an unmixed good for many people, especially the Native American nations that were decimated or genocided as colonial settlement. And some people are NOT okay with fireworks. And if there is a point to this line of thought, it's that this year things are definitely not improving and that's not okay. And that it is still true that this holiday is and has been important to me, and that I do still feel something like love and loyalty for my incredibly deeply awful nation.

If there is work to be done, let it be work that heals the world--

Autistic people (and our brain-cousins) are overall better at making rationally consistent small choices without being pressured one way or the other by the informational context. Less integration of the overall 'look' of things, more clarity on detail. Local and global processing, I notice you.

I'd say I'm an alien, given what I'm good and bad at, except that logically-inconsistent allistic-centered societies are rapidly trying to get themselves booted off Earth--

Emergency mental grounding for self and partner in the middle of the night because shadows on the mind ate a very important word: the "it" in "I want to get it away from you."

Worked.

I even feel better myself, under the *giddy*.

However: I am not flight checked on this size of vehicle!

Arrived back in Portland yesterday, after spending a day and change with my sib. Early morning flight turned overnight by jetlag meant I slept all day and all night. This morning I have the surreal feeling of things being surprising and backwards of where they are supposed to be. I will be here, but although I'm here I'm not here yet. Okay.

Sorry that I have been not here very much recently. School continues stressful, I've added gardening which is coming out of my sleep schedule it seems like, and I have had to do a ton of cleaning because of reasons related to school job you can probably figure out, and I just. Argh. I will be all right, I miss you folks, and I will be back more often when I can.
