long, meta, pretentious explanation of why this "place" is different
This is an archipelago.
It's not one place but a series of islands of differing sizes and closeness. You've landed on the shores of one of them that you like and set up camp. You can always hear what your neighbours are talking about and you get parcels full of the messages sent out from neighbouring islands.
If it seems too quiet, you can venture out to look at some of the other islands. They each have their own unique culture. Some speak languages you don't understand; some speak your language but use it in ways you don't understand, yet. Some places they seem to talk of only machines, or politics, or music. In others they make art for their neighbours to enjoy. Some are ruled over by a laird, others are democracies. All islands display their rules clearly; most enforce them justly.
You're not tied to the island you're currently on. You could set up a home on another island, many other islands if you please. Perhaps here you will write poems, while over the horizon you will learn how to repair a broken computer. Argue vigourously on one island, return to another to enjoy the views of your neighbours' gardens.
All these places are accessible to you. You can befriend people on any island and receive visitors or not, as you choose.
This is our achipelago. It is Free and you are welcome.
This is some activism. Impressive
I didn't realise there was a niche for writing about Glasgow indie bands in US leftist magazines. I should try and get in on that.

Guys, I did it. Made a (vegetarian) haggis from scratch. And it worked! #BurnsNight
My 5yo keeps talking about “girl groups”, how she wants to sing in a “girl group.” Gonna tell her this was the Spice Girls #bikinikill
