Reflections on a Bus 1

Pushing elevator buttons angrily does not make the elevators arrive more quickly.

I own 3 times as many hats (6) as I do jackets.

I have come perilously close to crossing the event horizon of Facebook and need to draw back and begin using my blogs more. For a number of reasons, but the primary one is that when I work on posts for LtL, I actually do some writing and thinking and analyzing instead of merely sharing links and “liking” things. I wonder if Facebook makes us less thoughtful even as we share more thoughts?

I wonder if simple joy can be a radical act. Sometimes I think so, sometimes not.
