How difficult it is to walk away …. well, from anything . . . but from social media doubly so. I have met so many people I care about through Facebook or Twitter. Truly, you know whom I mean, don’t you? Yes, you, probably.
But then, I think, how much of my time is spent not writing, not reading, not walking on the earth and making connections with all-my-relations… not having true conversations (via visits over cups of tea, or phone or email) with people I respect?
Can I ask those of you who want to be connected to me, and with whom I also wish I to be connected, to meet me through either my blog or yours, through our various emails, our phones, our kitchen tables? I hope so.
I am tired of social media, and I don’t think it helps me be a better person. It tires me. It angers me. It confuses me.
And so… I will be here more, which at least allows me to speak more fully, and respond more fully (I hope), and I also hope you will join me here. I hope you will help me be a better, more authentic person, and that you will give me the opportunity to help you do the same.
I will post this on my social media, which is ironic, I get that. But transitions are often ironic, and clumsy, aren’t they.
Bottom line? Let’s keep talking… Thanks.
