The World Has Gotten Too Noisy for Me

I’M leaving blogging and Facebook. The world has gotten too noisy for me and I want to concentrate on reading and writing and the people in my sphere. Those of you who know me from a class, a conference or other association know how to reach me via email or direct message on Twitter. And if you don’t, you can always click on the “EMail Me” button at the bottom of this page.

Thank you for reading. Love to you!

    Hear you! I’ve quit the news altogether in an auditory form (TV or radio) because of the noise. I’m contemplating FB and social media and haven’t made the plunge yet.

      I had a dream last night, Juliana. There were a couple of people at my house, but more and more kept coming through the door. I was trying to listen to someone’s story, but kept getting interrupted. There were, at times, so many people clamoring for my attention that I couldn’t make out anything the person whose story I was straining to hear was saying. When I woke, I wondered if the dream was a clear picture of how I’ve been feeling.

      Thank you, Hope. Ever since I announced this, I have more blogging ideas than ever, but I don’t want to go back on my decision without giving the change a chance. I’ve challenged myself to channel those thoughts in different directions. Earlier this week, for example, I took something I normally would have blogged about and wrote an email to a friend I know is interested in that particular topic. I’m gravitating toward these small interactions as opposed to broadcasting my thoughts. I’m curious about the conversations that might arise and what actions might be spurred.

      I appreciate you comment and for letting me know you’ve been reading. Perhaps we will meet at some point. 🙂
