Most of all I fear becoming what I was.
I can log in, but I don’t like anything I follow.
Tofu wings (breaded with nutritional yeast and chickpea flour, dipped in Panko, baked, tossed in Frank’s then baked a few more minutes)
Roasted broccoli (the only correct way to prepare broccoli)
Delicious mass produced waffle fries
penguins chasing a butterfly
Two of my favorite animals locked in mortal combat.
“ Another myth that is firmly upheld is that disabled people are dependent and non-disabled people are independent. No one is actually independent. This is a myth perpetuated by disablism and driven by capitalism - we are all actually interdependent. Chances are, disabled or not, you don’t grow all of your food. Chances are, you didn’t build the car, bike, wheelchair, subway, shoes, or bus that transports you. Chances are you didn’t construct your home. Chances are you didn’t sew your clothing (or make the fabric and thread used to sew it). The difference between the needs that many disabled people have and the needs of people who are not labelled as disabled is that non-disabled people have had their dependencies normalized. The world has been built to accommodate certain needs and call the people who need those things independent, while other needs are considered exceptional. Each of us relies on others every day. We all rely on one another for support, resources, and to meet our needs. We are all interdependent. This interdependence is not weakness; rather, it is a part of our humanity. ”
I like this. It reminds me of a quote I read from an anarchist, that, in my own words, explained that the revolution won’t be a violent, destructive taking to the streets but will grow out of communities developing their own systems that simply make the government obsolete.
I hate the fish tossing. Not a vegetarian thing, but a Seattle resident thing. Tourists clog this area of Pike Place, supporting none of the shops therein, waiting only for a chance to see someone throw a frozen fish over a counter and making it impossible for anyone to get through.
