So, facebook is good for something
Friday, September 11, 2009
Myspace, Twitter, youtube, facebook- I pretty much avoid all of them- well, OK. youtube is pretty cool. It's not technology- I enjoy my iPod, Kindle, Macbook.
This sounds "old lady," I know, & though I'm a 52 year old woman, I don't think of myself that way.
But, I find our culture's obsession with "me, me, me" annoying, even damaging.
Anyway, yesterday I was looking on facebook for Shepard Smith -watch Studio B on FOX sometime- he's a riot. I left a comment & checked back in today.
A woman I've known since 1st grade showed up as a friend request.
We haven't been in contact in a long time.
I sent her a message & ended it with, "I still love you."
She wrote back, "A day never goes by that I don't think of you."
I teared up. How sweet is that?!
We are planning a visit soon.
But, the me, me, me, look at me. watch me, read about me is still over the top in our world.
Anyone agree/disagree? I'd like to know what you think.
