100 Words, May 4, 2015

Now and again, I worry that I am too shrill a political animal for casual relationships, on Facebook, at least. Too many there seem too content to post anything other than celebrity, or cute cat pictures and consider that communication. Too many shy away from more personal revelations, or the expression of personal convictions regarding controversial subjects. When I venture a contentious comment, I am usually met with a deafening silence (yes, I’m aware of the incongruous terms).

I recognize the silence might be because I’m an ignorant idiot. I don’t like thinking of myself as asshole, but it’s possible.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
