I’m thinking of bailing on FB. For Ramadan, I thought I would abstain from my usual ridiculous, frivolous updates and maintain radio silence for a month. Focus on within. Simmer down. Thing is, Eid hit and I still didn’t feel like I had anything to say or want to share. Part of it was the onslaught of tragic news on the global and local levels – how could I joke about anything when atrocities were being committed all over the place? [Yes, travesties occur all the time everywhere but it just seemed super intense this summer]. Part of it was that FB instituted a new messenger app which had some backlash news about the gossamer thin bounds of privacy. [Could be true, could be not, but it’s probably true]. Part of it was that I didn’t want some of my ‘friends’ to be privy to my life, my pix, my wit anymore but didn’t feel like unfriending them. [That would cause even more of the type of drama I am trying to avoid]. Here’s the rub: I still have stuff I want to write if only for myself. I want to document stories that my kids can enjoy some day. I want to express myself the way I used to. I will probably keep FB for a while longer if only to see pix of my family and share the same. But I think I’m going to go retro and return to the blog. Watch this space.
