Off the gridWritten by hootenannie on July 20th, 2009
On Saturday afternoon, just after discovering some sort of maggot larvae undulating in my bottle of cumin (do you have any idea how long I’ve waited for the opportunity to use the word “undulate” – and how this horrifying experience totally wasn’t worth the satisfaction?), I deactivated my Facebook account.
I am trying to give my spirit a fighting chance at being still. It’s amazing to me how unaccepted that is in today’s culture. But Facebook felt like it was adding to the noise and clutter in my mind, and is, thus, worthy of a hiatus at the very least. That’s about all the explanation I am willing to give.
I am just now realizing that this means no one will get a reminder that my birthday is coming up.
WORLD: MY BIRTHDAY IS COMING UP.
I know that I’ll reactivate it sometime relatively soon(ish), but until then, if you want to find me, you know how.
