Cultivate the Merry Heart*

by chuckofish

Recently I learned that on Sundays my DH doesn’t read his email. That conscious policy — an act of defiance if ever there was one — gave me an idea. After I post this, I’m going to turn off the internet — at least for the rest of the day! I don’t know about you, but I am beyond tired of the reductionism rampant on the internet. Everything (especially politics) gets reduced to dumb slogans and simplistic, black and white equations: If you believe X, then you are Y (apply whatever values to X and Y you want). The lack of depth or simple logic is deplorable. Yes, it’s so bad that it inspires me to rant.

Claire trevorAdmit it. You’d love to say that to loads of people. Sigh. But no. We are going to laugh at all that self-righteousness, right?

Have a deep, complex and entirely satisfying weekend and when the world makes you mad, laugh like Errol 🙂
