mental health, where I've been 

So, I haven't been on this account too much recently. There are a few reasons for that.

First of all: I've moved! To a different account I mean. I'll still be using this one to boost important things and artists I like and to post my own art, but my musings and depression posting will be elsewhere.

Second, I wanted to have a more private account with restricted follows. So pardon if I don't advertise it here. A few close friends have already found me there, but that's about all I'm comfortable with.

Third, my depression has been very severe recently. Extremely. About as bad as it gets. So I haven't been able to do much more than sleep, work (barely), and try to keep myself alive.

Anyway, I'll be around. Just a lot quieter than I used to be.

And if you want to show support in other ways, boosts, likes, and comments are always welcome!

Thanks,

Hey! I'm Ren.

I'm a grey fox, an artist (primarily with watercolor, ink, and acrylics), a nonbinary trans girl, and I dabble in just about everything creative. I also struggle with severe depression and use platforms like this to discuss and process it.

I have a terrible tendency to avoid initiating social interactions, but please, feel free to talk with me! I'll open up rather quickly.

Dunno if this will even show up in Mastodon clients (or Pleroma, for that matter), but here's a .pdf of the sheet music for the string quartet piece I've been working on!

If anyone has a string quartet handy and wants to play my not-quite-classical-not-quite-prog-rock music, I'd love to hear it.

Or if you're just curious what it looks like, that's fine too!

I don't claim to be a good composer. And I'm not sure how playable some of this is. But I think it sounds neat!

Heckin.
Can't attach a .pdf file.

Dang it, Mastodon, I wish you'd let me attach any file type I wanted.

I am currently stuck on a couch in pain due to a back injury, so I've been working on arranging a piece of mine for string quartet.

I'll get the sheet music out when I'm done thinking about bowing, legato, and slurs.

Here's the piece in MIDI, as an .mp3.

donation request, trans, :boosts_ok_gay: 

Every year my husband and I make holiday gift bags for the lgbtq+ youth who are living with a local non-profit (Zebra Coalition) because of homelessness and isolation. Over the next week we're collecting donations to buy more gift cards for them.

Please help+share!

We are trying to hit $800 to add an additional $20 for each of the 40 gift bags we're making.
