Alas, Poor Blog

I have a confession to make.

I have been unfaithful.

I have become distracted by those sirens, Twitter and Facebook.

Yes, they were so alluring, so quick and easy. They offered so many temptations - to waste time, to read endless drivel, to get caught up in pointless arguments where it was easy to say harsh, unkind, sarcastic things.

I should he known what would happen, given my own weaknesses.

But no, I strayed.

No more.

I have cut of contact with them.

I will remain faithful to this blog and the two group blogs to which I contribute. Now I will have more time to give them the devotion they deserve.

And if I want to chat, maybe I'll call them or go out for coffee with them.

Pax et bonum

I too find the "constant contact" social networks too intensive for me. And I too favor facial contact (no, not via phone or pad) and real interaction. Just as we can't receive Communion over the internet, neither can we receive community.

When someone asks me if I have a Facebook account, I always respond: "No, I have no friends."
