    In that case I offer you all a summer haiku xD:

    A summer river being crossed
    how pleasing
    with sandals in my hands!

    Light of the moon
    Moves west, flowers’ shadows
    Creep eastward.

    In the moonlight,
    The color and scent of the wisteria
    Seems far away.

    Dunno yet. They post a list of nearly 200 things to do for the Hunt and frequently change it as the hunt goes on. Some require you to be in another country. There’s a new app this year that does mini-challenges and a location and chat function so you can meet up with other GISHers near you with the app if you want. It’s kinda cool.

    Sounds like a hassle. Probably fun though.

    Some things can be a hassle, but it’s always fun. I wished I lived near Misha though, last year, one of the hunt items was to pick berries with him and his family!

    The place I work has a very small working farm used to help with vocational training for autistic kids in conjunction with the special education school. We currently have 5 baby goats (3 adults) and 6 piglets (several adults), and several cows with calves and a bunch of chickens.  My ava is a goat kid that is 2 days old. They are so stinking cute it kills me every time I see them.

    That’s very kind of you. What kind of place do you work at?

    It’s a non profit social services agency. We have that special ed school for autistic kids for boys, a 2nd one for girls in a different town, and we are contracted with the state to provide various therapy programs to help youth and families in the state.  It’s a very  nice working environment, everyone is a social worker, teacher or counselor/therapist. When they ask “how are you?” they really want to know! haha

    Sounds like a meaningful job. Beats working for Trump!

    A sanitation worker has a better job than working for Trump.

    True that. I’m gonna watch a Ghibli movie tomorrow.. but dunno which one. There are still a few I haven’t seen yet, like Princess Kaguya, My Neighbors the Yamadas, Pom Poko, etc. There’s also Only Yesterday, which I couldn’t get into last time I saw it.

    Isn’t that the weird raccoon movie with flying balls? Not sure if want tbh. I’d like to give Only Yesterday another try though. It seemed like more of an adult story than the rest of their output.
