I have no idea if any of you guys are still out there. I hope you’re doing well if so.
I honestly don’t know how “I” am doing.
My mind is so full of news and noise and nothing. I feel this compulsion to stay up to date with information, but really, it’s just the same shit recycled every 60 minutes. I’ve come to realize that it’s a fantastic distraction from the voices swirling in my head.
But I think I’m now prepared to stand still in the silence and listen.
You know those trendy detox diets all the skinny celebreties rave about. The raves that make me want to scream “you’re rediculous” at the top of my lungs. Well, I’ve decided I’m committing myself to an information detox until after the election. Early voting starts in Texas next Monday, Oct. 22. I will walk in, embrace the smell of old church and all the nostalgia that, that brings, select a paper ballot and get my American on.
I need to hear the calm voices in my head again. I miss silence. Crap, I might even meditate.
I’ll pray more for sure.
The meaning of my title? I shut down my AshAtShades Twitter account. For good.
A pebble was lifted.
