Posting under a fake name or ID should be a misdemeanor, at least.
As far as losing the ‘quiet’ factor, my personal first choice is the music played in stores. My second is obnoxiously loud conversations on cell phones in waiting rooms and restaurants. If I used social media, that would be my third. In its place there is Buttercup in D.C., who, even when he is silent – a rare occurrence – generates sonic waves of disruption to our lives.
“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” Henry David Thoreau
“The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.” Henry David Thoreau
“What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.” Henry David Thoreau
“Never look back unless you are planning to go that way.” Henry David Thoreau
A Piece for Assorted Lunatics by Floyd Pink
Every year is getting shorter
Never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught
Or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over
Thought I’d something more to say
Good strip, Thaves!
Okay, remember that Gandhi was a disciple of Thoreau.
So it looks like F&E walk on water… !
“Man is rich in comparison to the number of things he can afford to let alone.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
