This is one of my first pieces using watercolor. For a long time I only used acrylics, and a LOT of the time only black and white. So this was a VERY new thing for me! :steven_pun: :steven_pun: #mastoart #creativetoots #IndigenousArtists #watercolor

@lj_writes folks here: I'm not racist; there's no one to be racist to in this 90-sth% white country
folks here: *turn around and are absolutely horrible to Rromani people, who are visibly different, to their face and also institutionally*

Many thanks to @vicorva for letting me pay witness to the goings-on of tombtown, where necromancers are the normal ones.

I am enjoying it tremendously!

Valid: Racial discourse, history, and systems are not the same everywhere, and it is arrogant, inaccurate, and harmful to impose the framework of one region or cultural group on others.
Vile: Ummm *actually* we in Europe/Latin America/Asia aren't racist like the uncultured U.S. swine? 🧐 And clearly Black people in the U.S. talking about racism they've experienced means they're imposing U.S. history & context onto us so who's the imperialist here check and mate 😏

She saw on TV that ghosts made things cold, and she’d always had chilly feet at night.

So she found a stone with a hole through the middle and she waited under the covers until the chill made her toes curl.

Gently, she sat up, closing one eye and holding the stone up to the other.

Shimmering and thin as a beam of moonlight, the cat stretched and resettled on her feet.

She smiled and went back to bed, careful not to kick.

She’d always wanted a cat.
