Sharing Is Caring

I’m rounding the corner on my Social Media (SM) detox. I started a few weeks ago and 30 days comes next week. I’m struggling with when or if I come back. It wasn’t hard giving up FB. I rarely go on there. Twitter was harder because it’s my news feed. But Writer Twitter had becomeContinue reading “Sharing Is Caring”

Charmed, I’m Sure

Long, long ago I was watching Johnny Carson and he had on Jimmy Stewart. Yes, I’m that old. Anyway. This was before TCM, probably before cable TV and so definitely before I had the chance to see many of the wonderful classics. Back then the classics that would play on the 3-5 channels we gotContinue reading “Charmed, I’m Sure”

Fool Me Once

I saw someone post something like ‘you get one shot to lose my trust then it’s gone’. I almost replied with ‘yeah me too but you get like 3-20 years of repeated offenses and then I might get serious about ghosting you and giving you the cold shoulder’. I’m an easy target.

Make Love Not War

There seems to come on Twitter and FB cycles of war. (I’m not on any of the other ones and I’m not really on FB anymore. It’s been months since I logged in.) Sometimes these wars are in tandem with provocative current events. Sometimes they are out of left field like WTF got up thisContinue reading “Make Love Not War”

Data Manipulation

Ahh, the algorithm. It’s kinda fun, one of my favorite WTF SM moments. I don’t know what the ‘algorithm’ is but goddamn it has a reputation and it’s not a good one. I wonder if it’s like that Emporer’s New Clothes thing? We’re all bemoaning the algorithm but really all the engineers at Twitter areContinue reading “Data Manipulation”

Tell It To The Hand

Sometimes people don’t like you.  There’s not a whole lot that can be done to change that if you are living an aware authentic life.  You may do something that rubs them the wrong way or you may be outspoken in a way that they don’t like.  So long as your ideas and opinions aren’tContinue reading “Tell It To The Hand”
