Most of us know better than to believe everything we read, especially in the digital world, and yet, a lot of ridiculously empty content circulates on Facebook and Youtube at break-neck speed. Geez. I find this particularly mind-bending.
Forgive me if this sounds like a Pollyanna perspective, but my disability and the episodes of illness that accompany it, are my truest friend. And, like any friend (human or pet) this relationship is not always smooth and carefree but I can depend on it; we’re committed to one another until death due us part.
We live in a time when stimulation is available at the ready. We can scroll through our iphones to tweet, post photos, listen to music, read email, and when that’s exhausted, we can pull out our kindle to read a book. Boredom is avoided like the plague, almost as much as talking to one another.
