I just shrugged it off my shoulders, I guess. If they liked me so much they wanted to be me and post my pictures and art and my face and my words as their own, I guess that’s fine, but I hope they find themselves and their own happiness! As to art stealing, it unfortunately happens, but if you have something beautiful to share that will bring joy to others, you should be brave and share it! There are some shitty people out there who won’t credit you, but way more lovely people who will fall in love with you and respect your work and defend it when it is wrongly posted! And you should do it for you, but do it for those little angels too, to make their hearts sing! Art is about self expressions but also about connections. When we shared the same loves it makes us all feel affirmed and less alone. I love you!
Today I saw you for the first time in months and I swear it broke me.
The spotted handfish (Brachionichthys hirsutus), an amazing creature that walks the ocean floor, is a rare Australian fish from the family Brachionichthyidae. It is classified as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List 2002. is the first Australian marine species to be threatened with extinction.
The greatest threats to the handfish appear to be siltation and invasive species. The Derwent Estuary where the fish lives is highly urbanised and industrialised, and a range of marine pests have been introduced through shipping. One key pest is the Northern Pacific Seastar (Asterias amurensis), a particularly large and voracious predator that is now abundant in the estuary. Studies by CSIRO show that the seastars eat the stalked ascidians that the handfish use to attach their eggs.
