Cultivate the Merry Heart*
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.
Have a deep, complex and entirely satisfying weekend and when the world makes you mad, laugh like Errol 🙂
