The journey to Christmas Eve requires patience and contemplation. It is no coincidence that Christmas lands right after the longest, darkest night of the year. The soul, too, requires a long night’s journey to its center, even longer than I could describe with Twitter’s 140-character limit.
So, like a lot of my friends and family who are in love with social media like Twitter, I am struggling to find balance.
I discover that it is in moderation–the medium–that I best find meaning. I don’t have to fast from digital media, but neither do I have to allow my extravagance to “degenerate into cant and hypocrisy.”
