It’s now been a couple weeks since I retired my Facebook account and associated pages. I am reminded of the feeling of jettisoning cable television and its associated commercials. More important than the ads, however, is the relief of life free of the love/hate posts about the patsy occupying the whitehouse. These messages all called attention to the importance of the ripples, waves and conditions at the surface of the lake. This matters! Something must be done! One need only be a few feet beneath the surface to realize how insignificant, and changeable, is this roiling surface. I feel relieved of a burden.
