Missing Out

Well- clearly I did not make any friends with my post yesterday regarding the choice to de-activate my Facebook account..

I alienated some folks with what seemed like flippancy around politics.

The name of my blog: LIVING UNDONE means just that.. letting you be privy to some of the process I go through to get my self centered in life by letting go of what was and opening into the path of no path.

The only way I see to affect change in myself is to try new stuff out and see how it goes.

Not accessing Facebook will mean I am out of the loop with family and many people I care for and learn from.

Not unlike people who do not have a TV.

I will miss out on interesting, important, funny and gorgeous things.

I’ll feel the sting of a broken addiction.

Maybe I just need to learn how to manage the beast better in order to access the peace I’m after.

Perhaps things are not as diametrically opposed as I think.

I’m just over here trying to figure stuff out just like the next person. The difference being you get to peek a little into my process.

What I learned here is that we humans are herd animals.

We (I) take solace in belonging.

If I turn to the river while you hop on over to the mountain we are separate and inherently more vulnerable.

But when we return to camp in the evening, you may have found a perfectly hewn arrowhead which will make me swoon in it’s beauty.

And we’ll both take pleasure in the discovery.

    Hi Cathy, I too am faced with a de-facebook decision. A few days ago I heard on NPR (National Public Radio) that FB was seriously considering allowing VERY violent (and disturbing to me) post. Violent like, be-headings. I am going to follow this possibility and if it comes to fruition…I’m outta there.
