I could care less about the metaverse. Tell Zuck to stick it. Are you looking forward to living your life in a low rez simulation? I’m not. In case you haven’t noticed, reality is pretty amazing. And it’s free.

I still exist on Facebook, but rarely check in. About the only thing it offers is reminders of friends’ birthdays, which as you get older, become more meaningless. Last night I walked a mile across town through several inches of snow. It was a slog, but the air was calm and I’ve finally acclimated to temps in the teens and low twenties. There was something exhilarating about that 20 minute hike through a quiet city.
