It's so bafflingly easy to not be a shitty person. There are so many small things you can do to help this world, and be just a little bit better.

In each interaction you have a choice.

Wish I could do this all day. This is more worthwhile than what I need to do for work

i wish dinosaur toys and shirts and plush and etc would catch up with at least the last 20 years of research in how they depict the damn animals

i get genuinely sort of mad seeing upright t rexes and droopy apatosaurs on childrenโ€™s products, i want them to be able to have better imaginings unclouded by quite so much adult nostalgia

We think of plants as stationary beings, but they're not. They just live on different timescales to animals like us.

All plants move, their leaves jostling amongst each other, trying to catch the optimal amount of light. But mostly, we don't notice.

Sometimes, I catch my plants moving when their leaves brush past each other. Usually after I adjust their lights, the fussy little things.

Plants like this are technically called secondary hemiepiphytes in botany speak, and they're really quite clever.

On the ground, they seek out shade, so they're attracted to the base of trees where light is most scarce. When they start to climb, they switch their behaviour and become attracted to light so they grow up.

A lot of epiphytes are pretty much doomed if they fall from their host tree. But not this one. It'll just find another tree to climb and move on. Smart little plants!
