sing that cold water
I know so well,
be that dark current
I carry in my veins.

let it take me under
to the shallows in winter,
see the ice stretch above
an opaque and cracked sky.

listen for sturgeons
and feel the eels,
dream in hibernation
on the lakebed.

sing the winter water
I've been promised,
be that killing cold
I was born in.

wait for my mother,
count the dead here,
my gookum, my uncle,
everyone I knew.

forget the sun
I lied to,
give up the warmth
I wasted away,

sing that ice road,
pray for frostbite,
beg for winter's mercy,
be numbed by snow.

  Got any Follow Friday-related posts to share this week? Comment here with the link(s).
Here's the plan: every Friday, let's recommend some people and/or communities to follow on Dreamwidth. That's it. No complicated rules, no "pass this on to 7.328 friends or your cat will die". Just introduce us to some new things to read.

NAME: Maria. Or bitterlee. Whichever you feel comfortable with.

AGE: 40

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: I'm pretty much interested in all the good things: The Arts, good music, my kids, my daily life, my faith and my family/friends. I have a more detailed list that's public in my DW journal. Feel free to look there.

LOOKING FOR: New people, old people, friendly people, interesting people, kind people, open-minded people, non-judgmental people, creative people, independent people, etc..

ANYTHING ELSE?: Like a lot of other people, I'm an LJ Refugee. While I absolutely disagree with any sort of ToS that excludes LGBTQ humans, I have been on that website for almost 16 years. I plan on importing ASAP, but I don't think I'll stop posting over there until absolutely necessary. There's also the business of importing my late husband's journal to a safer place, here. It's still somewhat difficult for me to read his journal without struggling with grief, so that might take a minute. I do want to create and cultivate something close to what I used to have at LJ. I miss the friendships, the support and the interesting lives I was able to read about. I still have a lot of active friends, but everyone is preparing to jump ship pretty soon, and I don't blame them. I am open to following/reading/subscribing/whatever you call it here, anyone who is interested, as long as they realize that I reserve the right to write what I want to in my journal and don't require me to comment on every single entry. I don't require that from anyone, and while I realize it's necessary to interact with other journals, I am pretty low-maintenance when it comes to comments. Say what you want to say, as long as you're respectful and I will gladly return the favor.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm not good at describing myself. I'm an introvert, happily married, and currently a student again for like the 4th time. I hate crowded places, yet I've lived in China by choice. I enjoy planning, bullet journaling, organizing, mixed media art, and living in a much more minimalist and intentional way than I have in the past. I am a follower of Christ and have been for almost 4 years now.

Top 5 Fandoms: I'm honestly not into fandoms as much as I used to be and I rarely talk about them, at least at length, in my journal. While I don't have the fervour for them like before I still do go through phases. I used to be huge into Harry Potter, LOTR, Vampire Knight, Harajuku Lovers, Tokidoki, so many more that I can't think of right now, and lots of different bands/singers. Right now I'm really into Riverdale but that's about it. I have a lot of different interests listed on my profile page.

I mostly post about: daily happenings, school, interesting stuff I find... whatever you know?

My last three posts were about:
- Having my friends guess which band I haven't seen out of a short list. I've seen lot of shows.
- A bit about my day at my volunteer position with an organization that raises awareness on the many issues related to the garment industry.
- Photobucket being annoying, my sugar addiction, and a missions opportunity.

How often do you post? It does fluctuate because life happens of course. Sometimes it's daily, sometimes it's twice or even just once a week.

How about commenting? I do try to comment as much as I can, but it has to be authentic. I comment when I have something to say, not just for the sake of it.

A GIF to describe how your day has been so far:

Hi all,
I am Leslie. I'm in my late twenties. I'm a pretty calm person. I pretty much write about anything I can think of. I write anywhere between every couple days to every couple months, although I'm really trying not to do the latter as often. I am looking for people who mostly write about their daily lives. I don't mind hearing about fandoms, but I find the happenings of daily life more interesting. I don't always comment. I'm sorry about this. Anyways, Feel free to add me. Just tell me who you are in the comments. Thanks.

I’m not exactly new to the idea of dreamwidth; I’ve been on livejournal since 2009, though I kinda abandoned that blog and have been elsewhere on the internet for a few years. But I’m looking to get back into dreamwidth (because to hell with lj and their new ToS), and have all of two people I’m following at the moment, and I’m looking for new blogs with similar interests to subscribe to.

NAME: i’d prefer if you called me Spoony

AGE: 29

INTERESTS & HOBBIES: the occult, kingdom hearts, gothy things, conspiracy theories, the paranormal, skyrim, steven universe

LOOKING FOR: I’m particularly looking for darker-themed blogs that heavily emphasize on the paranormal, conspiracy theories and witchcraft, as well as fandom blogs with a lot of kingdom hearts, steven universe or skyrim.

Or even if we just share similar interests, like please, my f-page is dead

ANYTHING ELSE?: please look at my sticky post for full criteria before friending me however.

Code push scheduled for Sunday night

We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 8pm PDT / 11pm EDT / 3am UTC on Sunday, Apr 30 (or May 1 for you transatlantic types.).

I don't have a list of changes for you yet, but most will fall into the following categories: things users have complained about to support volunteers, things support volunteers have complained about to developers, things [staff profile] denise has complained about not working the way she expects them to (and as we all know, The Boss is Always Right), and things that were printing warnings over and over in the production server logs, making it hard to spot when less frequent, more urgent errors were being printed. Oh, and also all the unused code I ripped out at the roots, which if you notice that, I did it wrong.

To sum up: we are rolling out a bunch of requested changes, so thank you all for your feedback!

If you're new to Dreamwidth and interested in tracking our development process, our commit logs are published to [site community profile] changelog and [community profile] changelog_digest, and every month or so, one of our volunteers will translate those often-cryptic entries into witty, informative code tours! The most recent one was published on April 1, so we're about due for a new one. Hint, hint.

We'll update here again to let you know when the code push is imminent!
