I despair of ever making good use of this platform again. I say "despair" because it's not that this platform is bad, or has nothing further to recommend it to me, but rather because I have simply slipped into Facebook-default mode. Posting to Facebook is easier. I don't have to write as much. Keeping up with my friends on Facebook is also easier, because they don't write as much. That platform has stolen my attention away from this one--I haven't been here for months, haven't caught up on my F-list for months.

I say "despair" because I like writing and reading long. It gives thought and emotion room to breathe, to grow, to come into full expression. I say "despair" because I am resistant to the sound-bite-ification of culture, and yet here I am participating in it, contributing to it, falling for it. I say "despair" because writing and reading long are activities that feed me, feed my soul, make me feel more human and alive.

All I need to do is to budget time for this, and also for my analog journal, and then commit to that version of my time budget. So why don't I?

I don't know. I say "despair," because how can I know?
