Please don’t be offended,
If I didn’t like this or that I shared that.
If our opinions don’t align
or your cause differs from mine.
If you’re gonna post expecting a reaction
Keep in mind the actions and mindset your post finds me in,
So I didn’t like your shared location?
Let me share where I’m likely located?
At a red light,
In between bites
in a meeting
at a reading
waiting in line
So know, that my mind and space are not prime
as I scroll by your post to your timeline
Best practices would be, not to read
Into the flicking through of my FB Feed.
Nah, that’s just an excuse you might say
To avoid taking responsibility for the role I play.
Well, If you demand and expect that when I read my feed I’m to be at my best
Keep in mind, this all began with a “friend” request.
Our Great Escape
If remote camping isn’t your thing (it sure wasn’t mine up until last week), there is no argument that will sway you and no story to convince you. Outside of experiencing it, words like “Connecting, shifting, focusing, filtering, prioritizing, transforming…” are deemed ‘laughable’ by some, ‘typical’ by others. So when trying to put my thoughts of this past week into words a comment from a friend got me thinking.
“There is No way I would ever do that, I’d get a hotel or cabin…with electricity, internet…”
With a Hotel/Cabin
There’s Familiarity. Comforts. Routine.
Without Familiarity, there’s contrast
Without Comforts, there’s risk
Without Routine, there’s improvisation
There’s Laptops. Phones. TV.
Without Laptops, there’s no seat-anchor
Without Phones, there’s no interruption
Without TV, there’s only one narrative, yours.
There’s News. Facebook. Amazon.
Without News, there’s no external conflict
Without Conflict there’s no debate.
Without Debate who needs Facebook.
Without Amazon well, who we kidding Amazon is everywhere.
So in the spirit of re-entry to the real world:
@Rural Utah, I’ll be back.
