I’m quitting Facebook for awhile. Facebook scatters my thoughts far afield. I’m not reading, thinking, dreaming; I am not paddling beyond the shallows. The frequency of chatter is beguiling. There’s community, catch up, even real news. I’ve followed Standing Rock that way–and friends and family. Taking a break so I can get work done, write, read, listen to music, make music, and remember what I came here to do. Even that’s taking a beating these days. Trying to stay up. The season doesn’t usually get me down. Today I realized that I am living in a place that has fewer days of sun a year than any place I’ve lived. Almost a month of clouds more than any other place–I will have to find a way.
