is it possible for a town to achieve parity in the ratio of houses of worship to cannabis dispensaries? insurance offices to community gardens? emergency shelters to playgrounds?

as i get older, "finding" exemplary locales that advocate civil/secular tolerance and inclusiveness, and rely less on capital interests (maybe there's a better phrase out there) becomes less interesting than fulfilling that ethic locally. i really have no idea how, though.

nothing wrong with striving for simplicity!

exhausted on many levels, so taking next week off work and will drive a ways to walk along the beach, stay a couple days. can't afford it, really, but the current routine isn't healthy, either. i choose the sea. san luis obispo county this time. will try to send neat pix.

Whether or not #Bandcamp will ever grow to rival the streaming giants feels somewhat irrelevant. It's a place where you can buy an artist some groceries or a beer or some time to make new art. It's a messy online record store where you can stumble around and, in a roundabout way, find what you like, not what AI guesses you'll be interested in. And now, it's served a role for unprecedented activism on behalf of the underground musicians & fans, encouraged by the platform.

I have "work" to "do" but no "interest" in "caring"

Of course it's extremely easy to say, "The heck with it. I'm just going to adapt myself to the structures of power and authority and do the best I can within them." Sure, you can do that. But that's not acting like a decent person.

The attempted occupation at #Hahnemann today is historic; brave health-care workers fighting to open up a shuttered hospital in a working-class community in the midst of a pandemic while the current regime does nothing and in the face of threats of massive police violence. 💕♥️💕
