it's been a long time coming, but it's finally here! i'm in Opera Canada talking about why #AsOne — probably the most-performed contemporary opera in North America in the last half decade — is not the high water mark for trans representation it's sometimes made out to be: https://operacanada.ca/opinion-cis-actors-playing-trans-characters-artistically-subpar/
food mention, animal death (Talmud)
for all that it creates halakhic complications, i do think there's something poignant about the idea of a field with a grave whose precise location can no longer be remembered. with time, our personal tragedies will fade, become a general ache instead of a pointed sting. the things that grieve us may even turn somehow into soil, into rich earth for crops to grow in, to the point that when, in later times, the whole field is redug anew, no grave is found at all. healing is mysterious and quiet; its edges are not always clearly defined #DafYomi #Pəsaḥim10
asking for money help, boosts needed
i need about $60 to pay my california health insurance that's due today, and money for groceries etc. couldn't hurt either (i need to buy socks and underwear and such)
i've been searching for jobs at places so hopefully i won't have to do this much longer!
thank you so much for literally keeping me alive, fediverse!!!

Nice: anyone who had to do so now gets 5.000 euro from the state
