My Websites

These days, I write more about community development (at Eclogiselle) and housing issues (on Project: SRO) and less about homelessness because:
There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river. We need to go upstream and find out why they're falling in. ― Desmond Tutu.
And, someday, I hope to revive my comic.


As of March 27, 2023, I plan to post new content from the following blogs to my Patreon feed:
  1. Raising Future Adults
  2. The Genevieve Files
  3. Feminine Character Works
  4. Eclogiselle
  5. Project: SRO
  6. Pedestrian Coast
  7. Butterfly Economy
  8. Nutrient Dense
In most cases, I post it privately to my subscribers first and it goes public a few days later. Should I ever succeed in reviving my comic, I will post those updates to Patreon as well. I sometimes work on other stuff which may or may not get posted there.

My Work

In the movie The Pickup Artist , Molly Ringwald's character utters my all-time favorite movie line: I'm too truthful to be good. I have apparently always been socially insightful. I was probably the bratty child yelling "The emperor has no clothes" and getting away with being rude, crude and socially unacceptable because I was cute as a button. When you are four, people laugh uncomfortably and don't explain to you why they are laughing. Being four, you stupidly think you are a talented comedian and then you spend your twenties and thirties baffled as to why everyone routinely gives you the death glare and wants your head on a pike instead of appreciating your witty insight and sense of humor. Me being me, I didn't stop being honest. I just tried to find ways to express myself that were less likely to have people wanting my head on a pike. This is a large part of why I blog. I still find social stuff very interesting, I see a need in the world for hig

Local News and Information Online

I recentely read an online article with local news. Nowhere in the article does it actually name the state and the name of the publication is generic enough it doesn't give clues as to the location. I poked around the site and found a county name somewhere, maybe in the same article, maybe in a different article. I googled the city name and the spelling is unusual such that it might be a unique city name though there are definitely other cities with names that sound the same. If this article were printed in a physical newspaper bought locally, using just the city name would be fine. You would know from context exactly which city was intended. But when an article is posted online, people can potentially trip across it from anywhere in the world. You are no longer talking to just locals and even if the city name is unique, not everyone will automatically know that. Don't assume your audience will go digging for more info like I did to try to figure out exactly where

Comments to date by me with more than 100 karma on HN. 1. 188 points I have an incurable condition and spent about 3.5 months bedridden before finally getting a proper diagnosis. My condition has a significant respiratory component. While bedridden, I hallucinated wordless conversations with the Grim Reaper... 2. 169 points Why is there not more focus on the police investigation. Why did they police decide not to press charges? If our police forces are failing to press charges against rapists, shouldn't that be a big priority to change? I'm a woman. I have been raped. I also have two adult sons. So, here are some issues as I see it:... 3. 165 points It was probably so successful precisely because it was seeing the world through the eyes of a 50 year old Japanese biker with the face people expect in influencers... 4. 155 points I've studied social/psychological stuff, spent a lot of years suicidal and spent a number of years homeless which was incred
