ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has posted "Unknown Variables in Action."  Juan struggles to figure out the Finns and gets absolutely no traction.  But everything is fine anyway.

This poem came out of the June 6, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] callibr8 and [livejournal.com profile] rix_scaedu. It also fills the "questioning" square in my 5-29-17 card for the Pride Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the series Polychrome Heroics.

Here is a cartoon about different affect.

I am reminded of fairytales about the fey, who would cry at weddings and laugh at funerals -- and get hit for it, and go home to Underhill because the humans were so horrible. But there wasn't anything wrong  with the fey. They were just different.

So much of therapy is about forced affect. About training people to show what is expected, not who they really are. It doesn't help the way those therapists think it does.  Some people have the same feelings as everyone else, but not at the same times and they may not show it in the same way.  That's okay.  They have the same right to express themselves as everyone else does.

Warning: This poem features an alternate-dimension version of a public figure, so if Real Person Fanfic squicks you, this may not be your thing. Also it doesn't directly mock an unpopular person, so if you're looking for rude political humor, that's in other poems.

Today is sunny and baking hot, with a brisk wind that does very little to ameliorate the heat.  :P  There's a chance of rain in a few days, so witch us luck with that.

Before lunch I took snapshots.

After lunch, we picked up two piles of grass. 

EDIT 6/11/17: Then I watered plants.

EDIT 6/11/17: After supper, we picked up a long row of grass.

EDIT 6/11/17: Later I put the goddess statue in the garden and planted two more thymes.

Enjoy "Stairway to Heaven" played on traditional Japanese instruments.  The effect is ethereal and beautiful.  :D  This is why we need multiculturalism and diversity.  Fusions can be so awesome.
