Ahoy, New folks on swingset.social? Time for an post!

I'm Lilian, your local Mastodon old-timer and part of the mod team! I'm a thirty-something blue-haired transfeminine queer, living in the Seattle area. I'm an oversaturated solo polyamorous slut, casually kinky, trying to take care of myself and my chosen family. I dabble in all kinds of crafts, always looking for a new way to make useful and beautiful things.

Am I getting sick of this couch? Or is it really starting to grow on me? (eye contact)

Strong contender for best shower of my life.

(Bah, that was supposed to be an animation. Oh well, maybe I'll get it uploaded from elsewhere.)

I walk this path, one foot in front of the other, as many have walked before me and after me; but each of us walks it on our own. Each step is as important as the previous and as the next, the first as real as the last. The path turns and winds and doubles back, and sometimes it is all you can do to trust your steps to take you onward.

May you raise your eyes, and never bow your head.

Fearless is only tangent to this adventure, though. On the north shore of San Francisco there are rocky beaches and cliffs, overlooking the Pacific and the strait into the Bay, and on top of one of those cliffs there is a labyrinth laid out in stones.

Went on an adventure yesterday.

This is Fearless. They were a gift a year ago, I brought them along on this trip for comfort, as a memento of a dear lover who has walked this path before me. I appreciate that the hospital staff's collective reaction to a grown-ass woman bringing a ✨plush✨ fox to surgery prep is just to ask for a name. So. Fearless. (selfie, eye contact)

Oh hey, looks like swingset.social has picked up polls!
