I didn’t have a facebook page until a few weeks ago. I made a few posts and abandoned it. It will live in virtual isolation, friendless.

The computer world did friends a disservice when it streamlined the process of making them. So many friends—numbers camouflage the sincerity of those relationships. Don’t get me wrong, I have many people I enjoy getting to know on-line and value those relationships. They are meaningful and important.  I simply wish to reserve my friendship for those who have signed up for more than a chat or a number.
