So, life is full of unexpected turns and surprises. For the last year of my life, that’s been especially true. Although, that’s been true for all of us in 2020, right? Who in the world would have ever predicted that this year would be the chaotic hot mess it’s been? Certainly not me. All the Jumanji memes in the world don’t make it any less true.
So why now, among all of the rubble that is 2020, did I decide that it’s time to start dispensing with my thoughts online again? In short, this pandemic has given me a lot of time to reflect on my life. I hate FB, but I use it to engage my friends, my constituents, and my peers. However, the echo-chamber it becomes, no matter which side of the proverbial fence you find yourself, is neither realistic nor healthy. So I decided to return to the format I enjoyed so long ago, well before the MySpaces, the Xangas, the FBs, the conciliatory online social clubs that embolden ignorance and embrace the disheveled.
I, myself, am disheveled, but I’m not jaded. Not yet at least. At least not today. I was yesterday…and last Tuesday, for sure. But not today. Of course, I only had 4 hours of sleep last night, so maybe it’s the delirium. At any rate, there’s much ahead. So if any of you are listening (or reading, rather), stay tuned. I’m bringing it back.
