A Mother's Love

Another sleepless night.

Fletcher is going through a 6 month sleep regression. Just as Megan did with our daughter, without hesitation she sacrifices her sleep for them. Always putting her needs aside for our children.

The love and care she gives our children isn't something I'll ever be able to put into words. I'm hopelessly in love with the Mother she has become.Β 

A mother’s heart
is never her own.
Bits of it are sown
into the souls
of her daughters
and her sons

Wonderful Mother
The heart of a home is a mother
Whose love is warm and true,
And home has always been "sweet home"
With a wonderful mother like you!

What's new is old again, but with flair - Project Tapestry

I'm wildly excited about this project from @Iconfactory@iconfactory.world

Info here: Kickstarting Project Tapestry

Our goal is to use public Internet standards to gather the information you care about, and present it to you in one place, without a middleman and on your own device. This means that not only can the app collect posts from social networks with open APIs such as Mastodon or Bluesky, it could also include webcomics, posts from blogs, the latest photos from NASA, headline news, or anything else with an accessible feed.

It's been a wild ride watching RSS and Newsletters come back from the ashes. With things like Substack and similar (better) services see explosive growth while also seeing exciting new things embracing standards like RSS and doing something fun.Β 

Standards matter and the free gravy train that is ad based social media has hit its peak. I think this Verge article says is well:

"Unlike most other businesses on Earth that live and die by their customers’ demands, social media services are caught trying to satisfy both their users and the people actually paying for it all: investors and advertisers.
Β I welcome the bright future with the disconnect from the walled gardens and connecting back to the lush open fields
