All too computer and media savvy and still vastly prefer the intimacy of one “friend friend” over oodles of “Facebook friends”. The internet often seems like sweet sorrow but, yes, I am here hoping to bend it to my will (Actually, the internet seems sometimes to me like a wild animal. They should borrow some signs from the zoo: “Do not feed the internet” or “Do not startle the internet with any sudden moves”).
I try hard. I like to push myself some, even if I don’t get all the way to where I want to go. Samuel Beckett described this process as “Fail again. Fail better”. I think that’s a sublime and positive way of saying that there is a lot to be said for effort (intellectual, emotional, physical).
I follow the golden rule.
