The special election and all its drama is finally over and all that drama may be a contributing factor, but it’s not just that–I have social media fatigue. Or maybe it’s just social fatigue. Either way, I get the feeling that I really need to reduce my bubble for a moment. Or a weekend, maybe. I limited my intake today, but we’ve got the three day weekend on deck and my intention is to bury my head in the sand and embody homebodyness. I’ll ignore the outside world for a few days and spend time with my kids, read, do laundry, enjoy my CSA veggies, work on our little garden, and just generally forget the world and all its problems and cruelties for a bit.
It’s going to be great, but you know what? I have some pretty amazing privilege to be able to do that. I can block out the nastiness, but there are others who can’t make that choice. They don’t get to define their bubble and stop nastiness from infringing. I do. I will. And when I get back to life on Tuesday I’ll be better equipped to help make the world a slightly better place.
