Apologies for the hiatus. Lately I have really been struggling with motivation to post. Between the Russian Occupation of Crimea (yeah, I said it), all of the pipeline protests, missing Malaysian jets, and Cosmos I have really been raging against my own ambivalence truth be be told.
In all honesty, I have been contemplating the pros and cons of going off the grid from an internet perspective. After the revelations obtained in my analysis of “Dragnet Nation” from Julia Angwin…I was feeling very resigned to unplugging completely – and that, being the best form of action. Unfortunately for all of y’all…I decided against said course of action.
BUT – at this point in my evening I really don’t have much to say. I wish I had some clever and inspiring words to uplift and/or goad you, but I’m a bit drunk off of delicious regional IPAs and I just want to enjoy my Saturday Night. I haven’t given up on it all…but you could say tactical retreat is on my mind.
HOWEVER, if I could impart any words of wisdom at this hour they would be “stick to your fucking guns.” Do you. Regardless of opposition in any form, do you. Life is too fucking short not to, and I am STILL vibing off of Wendell Berry’s words about farming and the necessity of connection between us and the food we produce and consume. One love.
