"One Sweet World

Nine planets around the sun
Only one does the sun embrace
Upon this watered one
So much we take for granted
So let us sleep outside tonight
Lay down in our mother's arms
For here we can rest safely

If green should turn to grey
Would our hearts still bloody be ?
And if mountains tumble away
And the river dry, would it stop the stepping feet?

So let us sleep outside tonight
Lay down in our mother's arms
For here we can rest safely

Take all that we can get
When it's done
Nobody left to bury here
Nobody left to dig the holes
And here we can rest safely

One sweet world
Around a star is spinning
One sweet world
And in her breath I'm swimming
And here we will rest in peace"

Dave Matthews

Welp, I permanently deactivated my Facebook account last week. And I was never on Twitter or Instagram.) Since doing so, several friends have checked in via email, I have subscribed to the LA Times, Daily Kos and Slate. And now I have time to read, exercise, meditate, etc. I was spending way too much time on it and it only fed my functional depression.

I don't judge anyone for wanting to engage on social media, but just wanted to let everyone know that much like other addictions, you can kick it and get on with your life. I feel so much better!

I remain grateful for this much more positive and peaceful forum with like and open minded folk.

Way to go Laura! I might be running the risk of self-promotion, but you might be interested in an opinion piece I wrote a few months ago for my university newspaper about Facebook's cold-blooded business practices and the need for conscientious objectors to turn their back on the Zuckerberg fiefdom (here's the link).

In the article, I mention decentralized social networking "confederacies" as a promising alternative to today's cast of internet leviathans, and I stand by that proposition. Digital social networking will only become truly democratic and conducive to progress once its domain has been wrested from corporate interests. Happily all we have to do to begin that process is delete those social media accounts that no longer serve our "higher selves." It really is that simple.

I read the piece - well done Coyote!

And yes, it's as simple as hitting a few keystrokes.
