Sigils: towards a modern aesthetic.
Some say if you peer through a stone with a hole in it, you can see magic. Some say doing so dispels magic, unravels glamours, and lets you see what is true.
The truth is, when you see a stone with a hole in it, if you pick it up and peer through it, your world still has magic.

Well what a book. I was partially right in that Neith was Hunter but not in the way I way I was expecting.
And in the end we know precious little about the truth of the world because we only had Neith's reality and we can presume an overlap with Hunters world we cannot know for sure.
Woah, turns out the Nest had an undisclosed microphone all along
"Shinrin-yoku is the Japanese therapy inviting you to bathe in a forest" is an article I got linked to over on FB by someone, essentially the idea is that mindful focused time spent in woodlands is good for people.

Throwing a warning out here: There's been two coordinated shootings at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand today. One of the shooters livestreamed everything on Facebook, video and images are spreading on FB and Twitter.
Be extremely careful. Make sure video autoplay is turned off, and that sensitive media warnings are enabled. Do not voluntarily watch the video, read any of the shooters' manifesto, or follow links to 4chan/8chan. Make sure friends and family are aware.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00035zf British Pilgrim Trust doing a show on Radio4 about the "Turtledove Pilgrimage" where they walk a route in Sussex, and sing the song Fare Thee Well/The Turtle Dove/Ten Thousand Miles as they go all the way to where there's a group of Turtledoves and attempt to sing the song back to the birds.
Fascinating look at this contemplative tradition, with mystic/connective landscape links, along with knowledge hidden in songs.
So apart from politics today has mostly featured listening to lo-fi hip hop in the form of the infamous In Love With A Ghost (for example: "heart of the woods" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nJ69FaH3dg) as well as other lo-fi playlists from Ambition on Youtube.
There's just something chill about the style I really like some days, also as I was saying to a friend of mine its basically lo-fi culture to have androgyny, low key friend crushes, and cute hand holding in coffee shops, whats not to like? #music #lofi
And it's all tied up with a charming framing device plot of a man telling his daughter a story to get her to go to sleep, about visiting his Uncle Fred one day and how that lead to exploring another world and the people he met and adventures he had.
So last night I finished an amazing little platformer called "A Story About My Uncle", it had everything I wanted, gentle learning curve, some tricky puzzles but nothing that made me rage quit (I came close, there's a lot of falling to your death), great music, and it's a nonviolent game about freedom of movement with a grappling hook and jumping.
