June 28, 2020:
No politics.
Instead of on what we’re doing wrong
I broke several of my own rules, today
And now I’m going to think
And I’m going to write
And I’m going to figure out why
In a way that might allow me to lessen the likelihood of future repeats of these mistakes.
I believe the answer lies, partly-
In the effects of digital echo chambers on our brains – on my brain
But, more to the point, I believe-
And thinking bigger, or digging deeper
I wasn’t present enough, today
Wasn’t present enough to notice the swing my mental state was taking
As I spent longer and longer wandering around Facebook
Feeding the things in me that I try to keep under a tight rein
Reinforcing those views that I like to hear
Until those that I truly believe are in my best interest
Became overwhelmed


I spent three years living on the street in Los Angeles. I came out of that, changed. This is my story.
