This is one of those weeks when I get to Friday and feel like I have bites out of my head. This week, if it could go wrong it did. I wondered a lot this week if and I just throw this question out. Do you think social media has helped or harmed our society? I think that it can be used for good, but I am seeing lots of harm that it can do as well. Do you notice people are loosing the ability to talk longer than 120 characters. Do you have the desire to go up to people now and wish they had a like button? I was at the grocery store and I saw this lady with a really cute outfit and that desire came over me, I wished she had a like button. Is that weird?
I will stop here, I have had a hankering all week to go read The Book of Stillmeadow. To visit with Mrs. Taber and read about her slower life and long for the changing of seasons. The sound of crunchy leaves under my feet, the huge Vs of birds flying overhead. The smell of wood-smoke on the air (not forest fires.)
Rain in the forecast. I long for the promise of soup cooking on the stove, with darkness creeping in as I read an old book. With no pictures but lots of big words. Tomorrow is Saturday. I wish I could sleep in but I never make it past 5:30. There is so much to do like have coffee on the patio, watch the sunrise and talk to the cats as they come winding around our legs and watch Sasha get disgusted with us for liking cats.
I hope you have a lovely weekend too.
