For the Daily Prompt: talisman.
What an interesting word. Talisman. What makes me feel safe? Where do I feel most safe, most loved, most joy?
Outdoors. Outside. With the birds, the deer, the trees. I am safest in the forest, away from people.
The latest news regarding Facebook and apps certainly reinforces that. I don’t trust technology, I don’t trust corporations, Big Data puts profit and money first, I do not trust people. Not in groups. Individually in clinic, yes. On Facebook, no.
And I realized the secret reason that I don’t twitter this week: I am a terrible speller. Yes, I am thinking of our twitter in chief and the spelling of counsel.
I would rather be outdoors trading songs with a bird than be indoors with a screen. Our television was turned off four years ago. I check varied news sources for a few minutes in the early morning. And then I turn them off.
Health to you and everyone.
