Subumbral

@Subumbral@mastodon.sdf.org

I organize books for fun at the public library. Knit, crochet, cook, read a lot, walk a lot , look at things. Small menagerie of birds and squirrels. Petsitter.

Lived in Venice Beach in the 60's, Utah in the 70's, and Oregon ever since. Big fan of Alaska, Seattle, San Francisco, New York, and Hawaiian Beaches.

All photos are by me on a phone camera, unless credited.

Avatar photo is me wearing an orchid. Banner photo is a skein of waterfowl in the skies above Eugene.

Someone just told me to check out something at 8th and Broadway in Eugene, but they're parallel, they don't intersect. But it reminds me of when I decided to get a photo of 5th and Madison in New York because we have that intersection in Eugene, and I walked from Madison almost all the way to 5th before it dawned on me that they don't intersect. New York is distracting. 🤦‍♂️

Then I became just another person laughing randomly on the streets of New York 😆

Alright, lots of heavy discussions today, so let's talk about something silly!

What is a movie that always makes you laugh?

Personal pick:

Anything Mel Brooks, but Robin Hood: Men in Tights, it's just funny every time I watch it.

@mossbiscuits I reached out for balance while I was getting dressed the other morning and stuck my hand in my oatmeal, so I relate.

@RickiTarr This one is named Dr. Steven, after a weird Portland OR meme. There's a last name, but I can't remember it.

Walking through #GarryOak #meadows & wetland marshes are to the right. Small #footpath to stroll. Still some purple #camas out.

En route home & will be uploading more photos, shortly. We had the whole park to ourselves - only wildlife sharing spaces today 😊

A little too sweet but overall not bad. If I do it over I’ll do a different streusel and cut down on sugar in general.

Is this what y'all think living with me is like?!

@RickiTarr That's definitely what living with me would be like. Hi, how was your day, solstice is coming and I've been thinking about the equation of time again. Is pasta ok for dinner?

This was a fun one, so let's do it again. What is something you've learned that seems unlikely, even though you know it's true? Here's one I think about a lot:

Sight, while being something something many people are born with, is not an innate ability, but something we learn to do. People who were born blind or were blind for a long time, who get sight, have to learn to see.

@RickiTarr Annie Dillard has a chapter on that in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, the experiences of the first people who had lifelong cataracts removed... they had to learn about things disappearing behind other things, how things appeared smaller with distance
