kaberett: Reflections of a bare tree in river ice in Stockholm somehow end up clad in light. (tree-of-light)
(I don't recognise myself in the mirrors you hold up to me, and I keep crying in astonished gratitude about the things you see, and I'm trying to learn. I'm overwhelmed and grateful enough that I'm not really managing to respond to any of your threads yet, I'm sorry, but I'm beginning to find words; in the meantime, I just want to note that we've got nearly the entire alphabet represented, and we're over halfway to beating the comment count on the most participated-in love meme I've hosted.)

The thing that's stuck with me most, from every Dreamwidth love meme I've ever participated in, is being told you make things seem more possible.

You make things seem more possible.

Please nominate yourselves; please nominate each other; comments are screened, and I'll unscreen and make up an index as we go.

Hello. I love you.

[personal profile] me_and, also referred to herein as facesfriend, is tentatively stepping back into using DW as a social network, on the grounds that having committed enough patches to make a [site community profile] dw_news post he might want to shake the dust off his account. He's techy (to nobody's surprise, um), he reads spec fic (I'm hoping to persuade him to post about the various books I just foisted onto him), he is into systems and logistics in a way that I find utterly captivating but leads D to describe him as My Boring Dudefriend With Whom I Boring, and he's kind and thoughtful and generous with his time. He does LARP (about which I know nothing), can be very entertainingly snide and deadpan if encouraged but is careful to keep it away from people who don't like it, and is a singlet who picked his handle lo these many years ago for entirely unrelated reasons unaware of what the naming convention implies (if this clause is opaque to you then the meaning's largely irrelevant).

Or, to put it another way, I think it's time for an introductions meme.
If you would like to, please comment to this post, and I'll introduce you to everybody else by giving a reason why I think you're great. Some people I know better than others, so I can't promise all my introductions will exactly encapsulate why someone might want to get to know you. You're also welcome to comment to someone else's thread and ask for a specific introduction to that person; I know some people are more confident than others about just jumping in and introducing themselves to a stranger. I am also happy to matchmake if you would like that; ask me for a recommendation of a personal journal and/or community from my circles.

And of course, feel free to repost this game in your own journal, if you think it would be a good way to make connections between some of your people. I think this could go quite well if it spreads a few hops away from here, but also worth doing even if no-one picks it up.

Please do play if you'd like to; if you want to PM me to ask permission and encouragement I will gladly dispense same. <3

Because November is hard for lots of us, and in particular is something I find hard (my not-quite-month of mourning begins tomorrow, officially); because it's spring in the southern hemisphere and the days just keep getting shorter in the northern; because I talked to my counsellor yesterday about all of the shapes and forms that value takes.

This post will close to new nominations at the end of the month (because November), though I'll keep unscreening comments after that point if any new ones do come in.

UP TO DATE ON THE INTRODUCTIONS MEME. Please go see if you'd like to get to know any of my awesome friends better, and if YOU, TOO would like an introduction but have thus far been too shy/busy/forgetful/whatever to request one, by all means go ahead and ask (though be aware that it may well take another fortnight for me to get around to catching up again...).

It may surprise those of you who have heard me complain to know that I do actually genuinely enjoy saying nice things about people, and it is currently very good for me to do so! So. (I am thinking I might run a more traditional love meme in November, also, because November is always hard and it's been a while since we've had one around here.) Thank you all for being wonderful.
kaberett: a patch of sunlight on the carpet, shaped like a slightly wonky heart (light hearted)
Folk, it's been a while since the last one of these, and I've met a lot of awesome new people over the past few weeks incl via WorldCon. In particular, this has been sparked because I'm wanting to flag up that [personal profile] davidgillon has just joined DW - he's a fab disability activist, and he's fannish about speculative fiction and diversity. We met after a panel on politics, I was a successful wheelchair evangelist, and he provided a great write-up of WorldCon on Wheels.

If you'd like me to write you a short introduction, then, well, I'm going to (again) copy the blurb [personal profile] liv wrote when starting this up:
If you would like to, please comment to this post, and I'll introduce you to everybody else by giving a reason why I think you're great. Some people I know better than others, so I can't promise all my introductions will exactly encapsulate why someone might want to get to know you.

Entertainingly, I last did this almost exactly a year ago! So yes - please do play if you're comfortable to do so. <3

Words and Deeds Love Meme 4: Jan. 18th - Feb. 2nd; Hosted by J.J. Hunter at Dreamwidth


Hey folk -- [personal profile] jjhunter is hosting another love meme. I have a thread and am a bit wobbly at the moment (especially about competence & creativity), so would super-appreciate it if you felt like heading over.

I am working through all your threads to leave comments. <3

Tagged "love meme" because, well, in its way it is, just taken slightly skew; post prompted by the presence of a beloved colleague & collaborator.
kaberett: Toph making a rock angel (toph-rockangel)
Hello everybody!

I know we've just had a string of really big love memes, but a comment floated past on my reading list today and I thought: yes.

In particular, someone was expressing a desire for a "not a darkroom orgy" meme for Valentine's Day: not because they don't intend to participate in the local darkroom, and not because they think there's anything wrong with the darkroom, but just because they'd like a dedicated space for something that isn't quite that. And, well, it can be a rough time of year for people, especially with the message that monogamous heterosexual relationships are the most important kind of relationship, so I think a healthy dose of respect and love might be no bad thing. <3

This post will close to new nominations on the evening (GMT) of Sunday the 17th, but I intend to keep unscreening comments to threads for as long as they come in!

kaberett: A sleeping koalasheep (Avatar: the Last Airbender), with the dreamwidth logo above. (dreamkoalasheep)
Today I have been doing my counselling homework (self-suggested; inspired by J.J.): namely, putting together a book full of lovely things people have said -- some of them about me, some of them more general. I am currently running through all the love memes I can find - thank you, so much, to everyone who's hosted; to everyone who's indexed; and to everyone who's commented. You've put together a vision of me I want to live up to, and - you've laid out some of the tools I'll need to do it. Thank you, every one of you, and here's perhaps a more tangible version of that thanks:
