This slime mold has 720 sexes and the ability to learn.  :D

I just kind of want to rub it on bigots to see if they'll learn anything by osmosis.

This poem was written outside the regular prompt calls, inspired by discussions with [personal profile] dialecticdreamer about Genna in the Maldives. It fills the "binge" square in my 8-2-19 card for the End of Summer Bingo fest. It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. This poem belongs to the Aquariana and Strange Family threads of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Sunday will be the last day of the half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics, so if you're still shopping, now's the time to decide.   I have marked the sponsored poems on the list, and will add links as I get them posted.  Please check the list before you make your order.

Mom and Dad bought their batch yesterday, of which I still need to post "Calming and Rewarding."  I'll leave that one until after I finish the batch sponsored by the pool with [personal profile] fuzzyred:

Finish the open epics:
"Everyone Can Dance"
"What Survives the Whole Process"

Sponsor these poems in full:
"Slash That Shit"
"A Form of Escapism"
"Thrust to the Level"
"One of the Necessities of Life"
"Their Own Capacity"
"A Broad Health and Moral Education"

Open for microfunding:
"A Different Vision of Life" 

So yeah, I'll be busy for a while.  :D

Thanks to a pool hosted by [personal profile] fuzzyred, you can now read the rest of "Everyone Can Dance."  People chat after the dancing.

For my current set of tips, I've decided to use the one I wrote based on how to make your hometown more like Bluehill in Terramagne-America. I took a close look at the town's positive features with an eye toward replicating them here with local resources.

* Cultural enrichment. Opportunities for fun things to do are everywhere. There are several big centers of activity with different flavors, like the YMCA and community center. Smaller things are scattered throughout, like the Little Free Libraries and Free Seeds Library. Creativity is fully integrated into society, everywhere from the artistic metalwork of the bike racks to the Real Live Writers. Watch for art fairs or buskers to support, encourage local businesses to hang art by local artists instead of mass-produced posters, and support venues that host events. Anyone can start a mini-library.
