Dudleya cymosa. Also known as a "live forever" this is a very pretty succulent which grows in California and the southern parts of Oregon. Some sub-species are considered locally threatened.
Sadly, because they're such strikingly attractive plants, they're also targeted by poachers who abduct them from their native environments. Sadly, replanting them in the wild is difficult work.

A few things to think about before jumping into someone else's mentions:
✅ Am I being contrarian?
✅ Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
✅ Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
✅ Am I derailing another discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person or show off how aware I am of social issues?
✅ Am I about to say "Are you surprised?" when someone is disappointed?
“People think that intimacy is about sex. But intimacy is about truth. When you realize you can tell someone your truth, when you can show yourself to them, when you stand in front of them and their response is ‘you’re safe with me’ - that’s intimacy.”
— Taylor Jenkins Reid, "The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo"
Every spring when the magnolia blossoms are out I make a point of smelling them. It is only a small windows of time and an excellent reminder to enjoy the moment. :)

A couple times in the last few weeks I've been in a convo at college or university where a speaker says "Apologies to the men in the room, but…" & then goes on to merely mention breastfeeding.
Who are these dudes to whom it's news that almost every human they encounter is a mammal?
I'm not grumpy at the speakers—they probably have reasons & histories for this tactic—but it's just such a weird phenomenon to happen in educational settings in particular.
Ich gehe privat ja sehr offen mit meinem AD(H)S um. Viele Leute sind sehr erstaunt, weil ich nicht in ihre Vorstellung eines typischen ADHSlers passe, was dann oft zu guten Gesprächen führt, bei denen ich die Leute ein wenig aufklären kann.
Gegenüber Kollegen und Arbeitgeber verschweige ich meine Neuro-Konfiguration. Warum? Weil wir AD(H)Sler immer noch mit dummen Sprüchen und schlimmstenfalls mit offener Diskriminierung rechnen müssen. Wie es @seppini gerade erfährt.
"The one thing we all have to do in a way which covers every aspect of our lives is simply not to waste. Don’t waste plastic. Don’t waste food. Don’t waste power. Live within our means without inflicting damage on the planet. That is a possibility, and that’s what we should all be aiming at."
– David Attenborough
(I 💚 him very much)
So many of us are so hard on ourselves about not doing enough to make the world a better place.
Seeing these kind of conversations in my timeline, I've suddenly just recalled something Jocelyn, a 90+ year old suffragette, said to me a few years ago:
You are no good to the revolution if you don't look after yourself first.
She is so right. And under capitalism, self-care is truly one of the most radical acts you can take.
Look after yourselves.
Thanks so much @julia2, you are an absolute delight! Your username may be julia2, but you’re my number 1! ❤️
