Jo Lane3,914Did you not mark your calendars? Shame, shame.Last year +Scott Cramer dared me to sit under my desk at work and share a picture; I did, he reshared and viral chaos ensued ;PIt was so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event, so get under your desk (or kitchen table or coffee table), take a pic and post it on G+ with the ridiculously long hashtag #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay ! And, mind your noggin.Last year some companies even got their whole office involved; along with kids and pets - sitting under your desk is for everyone ;PIt's Friday. You aren't really working anyway.Original post from 2012: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+ScottCramer/posts/ZpCndemLEQ5#+ScottCramer/posts/ZpCndemLEQ5#InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay2013-11-08 01:00:0055

Jacob Dix30,022For some time now I have been doing a project, an experiment, an exploration, a study in light. My object has been the sky, through the limited vantage point of my kitchen window and my backyard. The result, so far, is this album called Sky: http://goo.gl/phGuRForget about that for right now. Show everyone your own sky! The best, the worst. I've seen people mention avoiding it because it means they have no "object" to shoot. Don't listen to those people. It is the most challenging palette of light there is. Let's see 'em!You have a full day and a half! Please spread the word too.Sky!2012-09-02 00:00:0023

Brittany Constable3,838You know, I haven't seen any NaNoWriMo shared circles going around yet.  Perhaps communities have made them a little redundant, but this is still one of my favorite things about the Plus, so I'm sharing away.The people in this circle have all either mentioned NaNoWriMo in posts or comments, or are in the NaNoWriMo 2013 community.  Please let me know if you:- are not in this circle and should be (this is the one time of year I'll circle anyone and everyone as long as they're doing NaNo)- are in the circle and shouldn't be- are doing NaNo, but would not like to be included in shared circlesA note about adding large circlesIn the past, I've added WriMos to both the NaNo circle and the general writers circle.  This has proven a mistake, since a lot of people who pipe up enthusiastically during November later disappear off G+, or just don't prove a good fit for my stream, and it leaves me spending a lot of time doing circle maintenance.So what I'm doing this year, and what I'd recommend others do as well, is add new people only to this circle (if they're not already in other circles) and keep the volume turned all the way down.  Then you can go to the separate stream and check people out, adding only the people you want to keep around to other circles. In a couple of months you can empty out the NaNo circle and clear out all the people who didn't make the cut.2013-10-23 17:06:17401404
Sean Cowen43,829My Morning Circle: By Far, The Most Interesting and Unusual Circle I've Ever Created...In the beginning of October, I asked people to dig down deep and give me names of great people to add to a must-read morning circle. ( http://bit.ly/16ow9Cm ) This is the FIRST CIRCLE of those names. I have omitted a few names by my own prerogative and I've left off PAGE names as I'd like to create a separate circle for those. By and large, though, this list is the result of all the recommendations I received. There are more names to follow, as I'm still working down through the comments...What I Originally Asked of Anyone Leaving Comments and Recommendations...I'm looking for a SINGLE CIRCLE of pure awesomeness - a circle that gives me incredible content, insight, analysis, humor, a dose of the erudite, funny, sad, melancholy, happy - in short - I'm looking for one circle to throw into my stream that gets my days started off on the right foot.But I need your input. Who should I add to this circle?We all know the usual suspects (and some of those people will definitely be included if you recommend them), but I am seeking and searching for those little mentioned and possibly unknown to me people who will jump start my day.I'm not looking for popularity or anything specific - just let me know about the people you would include if you were creating this same circle. #circle   #coolcircle   #recommendedcircle   #circleoftheday  P.S. Added myself against my better judgement as I was chosen on this list as well. Now you know... :-)2013-10-20 15:53:26499612966

According to this list, my anime series is MAGICAL SUSHI GIRL.

I can live with that, and even imagine how that show might work.

My son's, on the other hand, is... Infinite Banana Girl?  What, is that "Jungle de Ikou" part two?

I don't find this surprising. I know very well that the actual act of putting pen to paper does things to my brain that typing doesn't. I know from experience that copying something by hand helps my mind absorb it better. (and it's part of why there are some things I need to do the old fashioned pen&paper way, even though I'm totally computer-friendly and typing is easy for me as I touch type.)

another interesting experiment exploring concepts of beauty around the world.

there's a couple of seriously weird ones, but on the whole I'm encouraged that many did stay close to her natural look.

interesting, and pretty encouraging!

'the experiment offered a lot more editors in favor of “preserving natural beauty” than I would have imagined, and so I feel extremely positive about its results. Maybe this is a sign that things are changing for the better... maybe natural beauty is making a comeback. And I, for one, would be greatly pleased if this was the case... because I’ve always wanted to live in a society in which freckles and moles and double chins and natural wrinkles were embraced, rather than hidden away and caked in foundation.'

thanks for this, +Jim Gomes 

was very pleased to discover this one:
Chrome tip No. 22
You may know that pressing the space bar will scroll down one page's length on any Web page -- but did you know that pressing Shift and the space bar will scroll up in the same manner? (I didn't know!)

ooh, and No.30 is pretty cool too!
Turn any Web page into a standard shortcut on your Windows desktop by clicking in the Omnibox and dragging the URL onto your desktop.

No.45 is handy - not just for finding out information, but for changing permissions!

on the other hand, I tried No.42 and it didn't work... I guess the Vogons must have destroyed it to build a bypass or something.

how to hurt friends and alienate people (I'm an expert at this, with years of experience)

stoopid insecurities. yes, I haz them.

so a friend goes a bit quiet - this happens, and hey, I go quiet sometimes too, so no big deal.

but they stay quiet for a long time, in a way that isn't part of the pattern of behaviour I'm used to from them. it could be someone who always sent me a birthday card and suddenly doesn't; it could be someone who would phone once in a while and they haven't phoned for months; it could be someone who has always been in touch by email and suddenly doesn't reply to my messages; whatever. there's a phase of "this person has gone a bit quiet lately, I hope they're ok" and then there's a phase of "they've been quiet for far too long, and they're not answering my emails/phone... more »

stoopid insecurities.

because of past history, of course. because this is something that has actually happened, and very painfully. I've had friends disappear with no explanation, just stop communicating with no notice, and I knew they were ok and hadn't left the country or something because I heard from mutual contacts but whichever way I tried to get in touch, I found myself facing a silent brick wall.

and I'm thinking of one particular case where this was someone I'd had a deep friendship with, we'd shared so much and - what happened? why the sudden silence? I guess I'll never know.

but this sort of thing has happened, and not just once, and so there is this expectation in my mind, the fear of this happening again. so a friend goes quiet, and the silence continues and I try to be patient and cut them slack because life and all that, because I know people have seasons in life and sometimes they're particularly busy or have a lot on their minds or all sorts of things - 

but that voice in my head gets stronger with time, the voice that says: maybe this is it? maybe this person is just not friends with me any more?

and I try not to put pressure because I don't want to scare friends away by coming across all needy and stalkery.

and then one day I run out of patience and say something needy and hurtful.

and end up hurting people I care about deeply.

and I wish I could stop this refrain. It doesn't do anyone any good.

I love a good discussion, but...

this is a tangent from my recent sea lions post (http://bit.ly/1wyzI9y) - the sea lion behaviour being the persistent "you must engage with me and discuss this issue for as long and as thoroughly as I wish" kind of behaviour that some of us have certainly seen online, the insistent demand for debate on the grounds that "you've posted this publicly so you should be willing to discuss it".

in my post I focused on the lack of respect for people's boundaries (i.e. if someone says "I don't want to discuss this [here/now/with you/ever]" then you should respect that and just stop) but then someone in the comments said he'd respect a person's boundaries but if they're not interested in discussion then he'd uncircle them.

which is, of course, his right. we're each of us free to uncircle whoever we like for whatever reason. if you uncircle anyone who posts about, say, salmon fishing in the Yemen, then that's your prerogative. totally up to you. but...

I think if you uncircle anyone who isn't interested in discussion, then you'll be missing out on a lot of what G+ has to offer.

While this attitude isn't the same as the sea lion attitude, I think people who uncircle for this reason have one thing in common with the sea lions: the assumption that discussion is the only game in town, that it's the only reason for posting publicly, that G+ is like some big gigantic discussion forum and, well, why else would you be posting publicly if you're not interested in discussion...

now, those who follow me know that I do like a good discussion - and sometimes I've probably come close to sea lion behaviour myself, because of misjudging what a particular poster was intending. I think I did more of that early on on G+, before I began to realise that hey, not everyone is interested in doing this thing, some people are here just to chill out, have a laugh, vent feelings, and maybe even express an opinion without looking for a debate about it.

and really, why not?

there's no right way or wrong way of doing G+ (except for stuff that's actually illegal or against the terms of service). there's no law that says if you post publicly online that you think broccoli is a vile vegetable, you must be willing to defend your position or forever remain silent.

but of course we're not usually talking about broccoli (which I love, by the way) but about more serious issues. and surely, you might say, surely if someone posts about a serious and contentious issue, they should be open to discussing it?

and this is where it gets complex and messy. because we're talking about human beings...

so sometimes you get a human being who isn't perhaps feeling very strong or very brave, who has mustered all their courage in just sharing their thoughts publicly because they felt they had something significant to say and that it's important to share it with the general public, because people need to hear this - but having done that, they're now feeling totally exhausted and do not have the energy to get into debate. (I speak from experience here.)

and/or the questions you bring up are ones that they have dealt with a thousand times before and they already know from past experience that engaging with these questions is fruitless, it never leads to anything constructive whatsoever, and it gets in the way of discussing the issue they really wanted to discuss. (otherwise known as a derail)

or: they're just here to chill out and vent and do this thing called building friendships, and really when they vent they are actually only interested in people saying "yes, you're right", and some might roll their eyes and mutter about echo chambers but, you know, that's what people so often do with their friends down the pub or wherever, they hang out with people who hold a similar world view and enjoy the camaraderie, and while I think it's healthy to come out of that bubble sometimes and get exposed to other views, I think there's also something valuable about the bubble - I think it's healthy to have a mixture of bubble and non bubble in your life, and I don't see on what grounds anyone can dictate to another person that G+ should be where they do their non bubble stuff.

so why post publicly if you want that bubble? maybe because you're hoping to meet more people who could be part of it? after all, posting publicly on G+ is a great way of meeting more like minded people. (though it also comes with the risk of meeting more sea lions...)

personally, I don't do the bubble stuff on public G+ posts. but I'm here for my own reasons and I'm aware that different people are here for different reasons.

me, personally - I love a good discussion, but I hate derails and I won't let someone take over my post to engage with a particular semi related question that they want to talk about. and not all my posts are an invitation to debate, because I'm not here just for that. I'm here, amongst other things, to build friendships, and to have fun, and to amuse people, and to share my creativity, and... oh, so many things! discussions are great, but there's more to life than that, and more to my G+ life than that.

when I first started writing this, I had a different title in mind. I wasn't thinking of heading this post "you have the right to behave irrationally" - because sometimes the way a person manages their g+ posts might seem irrational to me, but that's ok because I don't always know all the ins and outs of what it means to them, what it might cost them to engage in a particular discussion, what are the fears and anxieties that person has to cope with, what are the other burdens they're carrying, what sort of abusive stuff they were told when they were growing up that makes it really tough for them to engage in public debate and when you know that about a person you might go from "how silly to disable comments just because someone said xyz to you" to "wow, my hat off to you for having the guts to speak your mind in public despite all of that stuff" - etc etc etc. Humans are complex, and our lives are complex, and when you see just some text on the screen and a profile pic you don't know what's going on in the other person's heart.

so I try to cut people a bit more slack. because we're not machines. or Vulcans.

why yes, I did just yell at people outside.

it's amazing what a pair of blinding cycle lights shining in your face will do to your volume. from shy & quiet to yelling Whoa at the top of my voice in one second.

(it's a footpath, but so many people seem to think it's ok to cycle on pavements here, no matter how many signs there are saying it's illegal. and no matter how dangerous it is.) (because well, it's dangerous to pedestrians, and once you're on a bicycle you just don't care about pedestrians, right? yeah, not all cyclists. my husband cycles and doesn't do this. but meh, so many do.)

funny thing when I woke up today

half asleep, looking through the little gap between the curtains I thought: what is that weird blue thing I'm seeing there by the neighbour's roof?

it looked an odd shade of blue in contrast to the dark stuff above and below it.

it was a rather thin strip of sky, tucked in between big dark clouds. but without that context, it looked weird :)

(by the time I'd got washed and dressed, the big dark clouds had gone and we were left with blue skies and sunshine. yay!)

things that cheer me up #37.4

getting a Christmas card from a friend who said "look forward to hearing your news in Jan" - this may not sound like a big deal, but it makes me feel heard and understood and accepted.

because a few years ago I sent out a letter to my friends to explain that I'm no longer comfortable celebrating Christmas and will therefore be sending out new year greetings instead. and I'm conscious that what I'm doing is highly unusual in English culture, and here's a friend who takes my weirdness in her stride and sends love and friendship, which is a very precious thing.

(and it's because I place such a high value on friendships that I do new year cards. because I don't want to give up on the custom of keeping in touch once a year. it means something to me.)

because if I understand correctly, this is supposed to be about a thing that happens online, with people commenting in this kind of way on public posts - and I recognise the type, definitely - but then I think: but they haven't come into your house, they're commenting on your public post.

but on the other hand, in some sense it is your house. so it gets complicated.

and I think that's part of why things get weird and messy here sometimes - because different people have different expectations, and when someone reads a public post they don't necessarily know or understand the poster's intentions and expectations.

and then again, sometimes they do know but they don't respect that.

and then again, sometimes they do know but they don't respect that.

so there are times when someone might comment on my public post in a way that I feel is inappropriate but it's simply because they don't realise, for example, that I just wanted to vent feelings and wasn't looking for advice, or that I was just sharing a joke for a laugh and didn't really want a serious discussion. and that's not usually anyone's fault - there's a limit to how much you can spell out in a post (I sometimes add a "no advice please" caveat, because I've learned from experience that people can mistake a vent for a "please tell me how your grandmother solved these issues", but you just never know what other ways people might misunderstand your intentions) and on the other hand people can't always guess what you meant.

but other times, you say "I don't want to discuss that" and the other person doesn't respect your wishes. that's the kind of behaviour I see in this sea lion - the person who won't let go, who won't accept a "don't want to talk about it" and insists that you owe them a thorough discussion for as long as they like, with links to back up what you're saying and so on and so forth.

and they make it sound like they're being totally reasonable and you're not.

but they are, in a sense, in your house, even though it's a public post.

maybe I'm overthinking the analogy. (who, me? overthinking? never...) I'm seeing the bits where it's not the same - like the way it starts, because what happens online is not really a case of someone overhearing a private conversation that happens to be taking place in public - it's someone reading something that you've said to the general public, and responding. it's not even like they're heckling a public speech - in a public posts online, with comments enabled, they're actually invited to respond.

it's just that they respond in a way that doesn't correspond to what the person posting is comfortable with, and if it's my post then if I say "I'm not comfortable with that - please stop" then they should at that moment stop. Immediately.

I have personally blocked people for not stopping when I asked them to. Because even if I'm out in a public space - which I am when I post publicly online - I expect people to respect my boundaries once I've stated them.

So it's not so much like someone pursuing you into your house as in the cartoon, but like someone pursuing you in a public space and refusing to accept a "go away, I'm not interested". If I was drawing this cartoon (not very likely, as I'm terrible at drawing) it would end differently. It would end with the couple going to sit in an outdoor café and the sea lion insisting on continuing the conversation at their table. Public space, but still not respecting their boundaries.

reasons why I hate the seasonal music in the supermarket

so yesterday I was there again, wandering through the aisles of supermarketland and wishing the music would stop - for more than one reason.

* first of all there's my general dislike of noise being inflicted on me when I'm a captive audience and can't escape. thankfully it wasn't very loud yesterday, so not so bad on that front.

* second, there's my personal dislike of some of the seasonal songs, because they feel so saccharineish. stuff like Jingle Bell Rock, or White Christmas, for example. (sorry if these are your favourites! we all have different tastes!)

* but third is really the thing that makes me do such painful cringes - it's the Jesus factor.

because to me, the concept of blaring songs about Christ the Saviour etc in an attempt to jolly us along into Spending Moar and Buying All The Things - sorry, that just feels like total sacrilege to me. I might not like the Rudolph song but at least that's just silly, it has no deep meaning. So I'll be walking along and grumbling to myself about the saccharine in some of the songs, and then wham, I'm hit by a really poignant song about Jesus and in one moment I've shifted from "grumble grumble, I hate these songs" to: I'm so sorry, Lord, please forgive them for using you to make a profit. 

still, it will be over soon.

oh, and it rained. which is not highly unusual here in England but it was a surprise because when I looked at the weather forecast, it looked like a dry day. still, I had my waterproof coat on, which has a good hood so my hair didn't get soaked.

and now I think it's time I had some supper. it's 9pm, and even by night owl standards it's time for food. my brain says it's running out of verbal coherence and garblegarble.

this is what I used for that kaleidoscope yimsky pic last night.

I've only just recently started exploring what this thing can do, so can't say much except: if you're into photo editing then check it out. It's free, it's a browser thing so you don't need to download software, and it has lots of interesting features.

I've also downloaded their free desktop app, which I've been using for some fun stuff - those pics I shared recently with the added yellow duck and so on - but it's much more basic than the online Editor.

one major difference: the online Editor does layers. it lets you go back to a particular layer and edit it separately, and it lets you save the wip as a project to come back to and work on some more. (that's in the "save as" options.) there's also a masking tool but I have yet to figure out how to use... more »

(note: this link is to the Editor. if you go to pixlr.com you'll see several different tools on offer, including Pixlr Express, which is a lot more basic and I think the free app is based on that. but if you click on the link at the bottom of this post, you'll get to the Editor.)

p.s. I don't know what the mobile app is like.

so so so true!

when I'm reading fiction, what keeps me reading is that I've been drawn into the world in the story, I care about the characters, I want to stay with them - if it's done well, I don't feel like someone is telling me a story, I'm not aware of the author.

except, I suppose, when the story is narrated by one of the characters - then it does feel like someone is telling you a story, but it's their own personal story, and you are still drawn into their world and their experiences.

#writing  

I've been privileged to sit in as Jack McDevitt talked to writers about writing twice.  I learned tons from the experiences.  One somewhat controversial tenet of his is: writers don't, first and foremost, tell a story.  He writes about that in one of his online journal entries from this month:

"Aspiring writers, when asked what a writer does, will almost always say that she tells a story. That misses the point entirely. The objective is to create an experience. The reader should become one of the characters in the narrative, and should live through the fictional events. When Lisa tells Will it's over, that she's sorry and it's not his fault, but that the chemistry simply isn't there, when she does that and walks away, the reader should be left in tears, much like Bogart standing in the rain in Paris. Anything that pulls the reader out of the experience, that reminds him that he's sitting in a chair at home, and that it's all right because Lisa doesn't really exist, detracts from the power of the narrative. Maybe destroys it altogether."___so so so true!

some thoughts about dealing with death

today I attended a thanksgiving service for someone who died a couple of weeks ago, a lady I knew from church, who had lived a long life and a good life and there was much to celebrate - it was a joyous occasion, though mixed with tears of sadness because of course we're missing her.

I spoke to one of her sons afterwards, just to sort of say, in a way: your mother meant something to me. But later on I thought: I really don't think I dealt with it very well, not that I was horrible to him but I think I kind of forgot that I was speaking to a man who has just buried his mother. I forgot to be tender, gentle, compassionate.

and so I started thinking about why.

some thoughts about dealing with death

today I attended a thanksgiving service for someone who died a couple of weeks ago, a lady I knew from church, who had lived a long life and a good life and there was much to celebrate - it was a joyous occasion, though mixed with tears of sadness because of course we're missing her.

I spoke to one of her sons afterwards, just to sort of say, in a way: your mother meant something to me. But later on I thought: I really don't think I dealt with it very well, not that I was horrible to him but I think I kind of forgot that I was speaking to a man who has just buried his mother. I forgot to be tender, gentle, compassionate.

and so I started thinking about why.

at first I thought about the whole british cultural thing, with people being reserved and not showing much emotion - I'd sat there and watched this guy giving a tribute to his mum from the front and it was great (great to hear about her life, of which I'd hardly known anything, as I'd only met her about... what... six, seven years ago? something like that) but his delivery was very cool and collected and there was no sign that he was grieving.

also, I realise that despite all my years here, I still get thrown by the man-in-a-suit thing and feel as though I'm talking to someone who is strong and with it, forgetting there's a human being underneath, with feelings. suits form a barrier for me. I come from a much more informal culture, with a very different dress code. when I see a man in a suit and tie (or a woman in a smart suit) I feel a distance.

but as I thought about it, I realised that there's another factor that comes into it:

the burial, as often happens here, was a separate thing which many of us didn't attend. (our church doesn't have its own burial grounds, so people go to the cemetery to do that bit, and then come to the church to have a service.) so I didn't have that visual, the thing that makes you realise in a hitting-you-in-the-guts way that this person is dead. (side note: I've been to funerals where it was a cremation rather than a burial, and found it a bit weird because I'm not used to it but there still was some kind of visual.)

so it felt less immediate, less like a funeral.

and I'd had enough time to get used to the fact of her death so it didn't feel like she's just died - again a cultural difference, because back home we bury people straight away, so I'm not used to the way so much time passes here between the death and the funeral.

note to self: try and remember when you go to a thanksgiving service that it kind of is a funeral in a way even if it doesn't look like one, and that the deceased's close family are, yanno, the deceased's close family.
