long, meta, pretentious explanation of why this "place" is different Show more
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.

The Cowley Club, Brighton's local DIY social centre, is in urgent need of repair and they're asking for donations to help fund them.
After repairs and plastering are done, they plan to paint a mural of Anna Campbell, an organizer with the Cowley Club who died fighting for the YPJ in Afrin, on the front of their building.

The Forest is a cafe and community space in #Edinburgh and it's in great need of financial assistance. It's run 100% by volunteers and is a registered charity, so any penny spent will go directly to upkeep of the space itself.
It's one of a very few number of spaces run for and by the community, please donate if you have the means to.
#Noordzeeroute19 we had half an hour of rain and since then it's sunny and the wind is with us again today! It's a slightly longer way, and it took us quite some time to make half of it, but I think we're making it. The dunes were super beautiful again and now we're riding through a landscape dominated by agriculture. They grow lots of flowers here! #florespondence
