Spring is Upon Us 🌷

Spring is upon us. The great fertility festival of Ostara comes to mind. I think of lovemaking with the Green Man in the forbidden forest. Some sort of pagan wine-drunk bacchanal orgy enters the psyche.

Perhaps we’ll contract a landscaper for the backyard and make it more green and festive to celebrate?

Last year, I deleted my FaceBook and Instagram accounts.

Why?

Because I learned about how their algorithms are so insidious that they “reward” you for spending more time with them by helping your posts get more “engagement”. It’s really strange dystopian stuff.

When I lived next to Zuck and Sheryl in San Francisco, I eavesdropped through the walls with a glass tumbler and let me tell you — they were discussing their world domination plans like that evil cat from Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

After installing Instagram last week to reconnect with friends and family. HOLY FUCK ADS ADS ADS and more ADS. And fake airbrushed manipulated photos.

Please give me some redeeming qualities here?
