They say chickens are cowards, but who am I to judge? In the years that I have owned hens, I’ve never seen them display cowardice. Vigilant, cautious, heedful, I have seen these words in practice. But craven? Not often. I’ve seen chickens that have pecked snakes and hens who have pecked my hand trying to collect the eggs under her warm body. I have heard the wail of a rooster when the hawks wheels in the dawn. I have seen a pecking order with a speckled bantam at the top. I have seen love, too, in their bravery. In their acceptance of new hens as they come—bruised and swollen and cut up as I have adopted them. But the most courage I have seen comes in those chicken who are injured themselves. Prey animals, they don’t show the pain they can manage to hide. Stoic. No grimace on the limp. Sitting down to avoid running. Perching on trembling legs, I’ve seen it taken in stride. Hens hide their pain, ignore it until necrosis can set in. I watch my flock, my brave girls doing their best to stay tough. I watch them until they can trust me to play acting. Like this hen here, who’s healing from bumblefoot and comes to me when I squat down to feed them. Comes to me, to trust me, to show me her progress, to limp if she’s aching so I can soak her foot again and hold her against my chest until she’s asleep. I wonder sometimes what I can learn from raising chickens that I haven’t already. Not about responsibility or time management or all the resume fillers, buzzwords, corporate catch-all’s. But the real lessons I’m learning. “How can I be brave today?” I’m asking myself. “What pain am I showing to those I trust, cracking at the edges of my denial?”

#Repost @queerappalachia with @get_repost ・・・ We are part of a statement published in @artnet today by @nangoldinstudio’s @sacklerpain Project & @ryanjhampton in regards to the Sackler family patenting opioid treatment drugs. We are grateful to have the opportunity to voice a rural perspective in the opioid epidemic that is devastating our home. The Sackler’s like to clean their money & their name in art. A fundamental part of the Sackler’s business plan is that Appalachia / poor rural addicted people are disposable & no one is paying attention to us. Can you imagine a world where the Sackler name chiseled in marble sits outside of the communities that they have ACTUALLY created? They want their name to be associated with priceless art but it really should be associated with Appalachia & the epidemic they created literally in our backyards. Can you imagine passing that beautiful sign with the Sackler’s name on it every time you entered some burnt out meth holler w/o municipalities anymore? Or outside of a pill mill with a line coming out of it on the 1st & the 15th. If you really want to see how Sackler invests in communities, ignore The Upper West side of Manhattan and look @ Appalachia.

There is no right or wrong way to transition y’all From @raaybees “Do not illegitimize me because I am pre-op everything. Look at this damn body. That’s 20 hours of farm work every week. This body is trans and beautiful. Post-op or not fuck y’alls standards of what it means to be trans because half of y’all post-up folks still live with insecurity and judgment in your heart and you’ll only legitimize white trans folks that are post-op.

At the 11th hour, The City of Asheville has revoked the Notice of Violation issued to our neighbors at Kairos West Community Center. 12 Baskets Cafe is no longer under threat and the City is acknowledging that Kairos is *not* operating an illegal shelter. This outcome was the direct result of huge public outcry and our ability to mobilize as a community. But the fight isn't over. @TheSteadyCollective -- and syringe access more broadly -- is still in danger. The City continues to claim that our bookstore is operating an illegal shelter by hosting harm reduction outreach. We've spoken to our friends at Kairos and 12 Baskets and we're all committed to defending syringe access in West Asheville. We know that the City may be hoping to divide us by narrowing their focus -- it won't work!

After work, the sky turned golden. The curls of smoke around my fingertips met the rainclouds, pregnant and passing over the farm. I listened to the geese bellow. It echoed off the window. I sometimes wonder if every experience leaves bits of oneself behind. If, like a dust mote, like dandruff, there is a particulate cast-off of molecules that get absorbed into some other object. Ones that haunt a space. That fertilize a house with memories and maybe that is what makes the floorboards ache at night. I wonder, then, if the windowpane keeps a trace of the geese’s caterwauling. I wonder if the clouds are pregnant with prayer and curses and birthday wishes as well as rain. I wonder what trace of myself I have left in the chickens, in the dogs, in the field where I bore down my nails digging potatoes by hand. I wonder if the golden yolks are a sign of my commitment. If the small kisses Elsa gives me are traces of memories left behind the house to spark her tenderness. If the flowers I pick in the garden grew bold and bright and electric because that is how I was feeling the day I planted them, months ago. In the high noon of Summer. Is this what satisfaction and contentment and pride feels like?

This has been a hard week. We’re both busy, stressed, and exhausted. I pulled out the couch bed and turned on the AC the last two nights. Just to veg out. To relax. To take my mind off of work and obligations and all the little shards of adulthood that still cut my knuckles just enough to keep me aching. But there is a bright spot to this otherwise hard week: that I am baking and cooking again. Most summers, we graze more than feast. Our little house is too insulated; it traps the heat whenever the oven is on. So we keep it off. We may eat a salad one night and then a plate of vegetables and cheese the next. But never anything laborious. Just assembled haphazardly at 8 that night. But yesterday, I felt inspired. I wanted to spend an hour doing something other than my to-do list. And so I made pasta by hand. On a whim. By instinct and feel and guesswork, I cut long and eggy noodles on the counter. I used eggs laid that morning, the yolk pooling in the white well of flour. I roasted tomatoes (and avoided the second floor because of the heat!) and slathered it all in oil and garlic and pepper. I topped it all with basil from the garden. We ate like a wolves last night and fell asleep dreamlessly because of it. #homemadepasta #handmadepasta #farmfresh #frommygarden

Regrann from @queerappalachia - #electricdirt from @stickerjock “Embroidery inspired by @queerappalachia !! This slogan has been something that's stuck with me ever since I saw it on their page. Learning to be comfortable with myself and my expressions as a rural queer in the last year or so has been incredibly therapeutic. I feel like expressing that process through a common folk art (that's also associated with femininity) is something that's allowed me to grow as an artist and a person. Also I love radishes. . . . . #embroidery #embroidered #fiberarts #embroideredpatch #handmade #embroideryart #lgbt #handembroidered #handcrafted #handembroidery #artistsofig #artistsoninstagram #potpourriofartists #embroiderymagazine #contemporaryembroidery #embroideryinstaguild #makersmovement #softboyclub #radish #produce #farmersmarket #electricdirt #queerappalachia #queerfarmers#ruralresistance - #regrann

From #cornbreadcommunism on #Facebook 🌽🍞☭ “EXCITING NEWS Y'ALL. None yinz asked for it, but you know y'all wanted it: The official CC Manifesto! A 22 pg. zine aimed at propagandizing the leftist tradition of Appalachia and rural folk, with some lefty art for good measure. There will be 2 versions to download for free: 1) Electronic pdf for viewing and share online; 2) PDF to print out (on standard printer paper) to spread the word of Cornbread Communism across the country as a fellow cornbread propagandist. We will also be tabling at a zine fest or two. One confirmed is 2018 Morgantown Zine Fest Hosted by @travelinappalachiansrevue and Queer Appalachia on Oct. 6. Make sure to check back on our page for more info. In the meantime, check out the cover by @fernskully at @junipermoonfolkarts.#queerappalachia #electricdirt
