It’s the end of the week, and where I feel I should be slowing down for a relaxing weekend, I actually sense I’m only slowing down enough to get another running start. Some weeks run into each other like that; that’s why little breaks and vacations out of the ordinary are so necessary.

It’s just a damn shame and the real truth -how hard it is to go deep when there is always so much to skim. It’s both too easy to have a peripheral understanding and very lazy to express an immediate opinion; despite the anxiousness one feels to do so. That’s the irony. Both having knowledge and seeing how a circumstance plays out require time.

I welcome the current social media backlash.
