it is often assumed that one can be more oneself with others they know than when with strangers. I have to question that. People who know you have their opinions and definitions for you. I say this because I truly feel more free to write the way I really like to write than I do when I go over to facebook, where part of me feels not truly free to word what I want to word the way I really wish to word.
I once developed a bad facebook habit. I went back to it a few month ago. It’s got its good points but for the most part I feel it a toxin for the mind wishing to tap into the blessed spring from which flows that juicy feel for imaginative, freewheeling, prose or poetry or poetic prose or whatnot.
