What are you doing right now?
Right now, (for those who shouldn’t care) I’m celebrating (not to mention publicly humiliating myself by announcing) my freedom from facebook. The social networking program is very intelligent indeed, and it’s not necessarily a negative thing for our society, many wonderful things came and continue to come from the 2 million plus user web-site, including a Missing Childrens Page, which help Investigators receive clues and ultimately track down victims in record time. But, for me, the bad kept outweighing the good. Even for a spray lord professional climber like myself – enough was enough. From now on, I’ll only be delivering news, pics, and/or thoughts through the websites of my true friends, my innovative sponsors, and my own homey home page.
At the end of the day, you just gotta ask yourself – What was or is facebook REALLY about? I feel as though I just broke up with a high maintenance girlfriend, or regimented climbing partner, he he, But seriously, I feel light. I feel free. I feel slightly disconnected to the outside world, but more connected to my own. So, now, with no cell phone and no facebook, Lydia and I are even harder to reach and deeper into the “old school” (read; new school hippy wannabee’s resisting to change) way of living.
But, please, if it’s important and you’d still like to chat with me, both e-mail and my home phone will work just as well as they always have. Thanks for listening to my crud, as usual. The sun is shinning again, and it’s time to drink a beer and investigate some seeping projects. Rock Climbing FOREVER man. Best wishes to all.
