I have awoken with the urge to blog for the first time in many moons and offer you this otter doing a backflip at Capron Park Zoo in Massachusetts.

I don’t know how many of Hoyden’s once-regular readers are still subscribed, but hello to all who are. I have an office job these days which really cuts down on blogging headspace, but I still miss it at times.

I scroll through Twitter on my commutes usually, finding some hashtags more interesting than others and some people useful to follow simply in order to find new people to preemptively block. This month I read more posts on the #itsaccessiblebut hashtag than any other.
