The Diet Diaries. Entry #6.

July 13, 2016

I have been hesitating to update you, my dear faithful followers, because the world has gone to hell in a hand basket. (BTW, that phrase dates from mid-19th century America and the proverbial basket is the one in which heads are caught after meeting with a sharp guillotine. Thanks, Wikipedia! You never let me (or millions of high school students) down!) 

My thinking changed this morning and the catalyst was a soul satisfying breakfast with a delightful friend. We had a great conversation on a multitude of topics. There was laughter, a few tears, we solved some of the world’s problems and we talked about social media and how it is understood and used by three different generations: our parents, us and our young adult children. I reassessed my recent dearth of diet diaries. I believe that the best FB posts should be a̶l̶l̶ ̶a̶b̶o̶u̶t̶ ̶m̶e̶ lighthearted. Bring on your puppy pictures, vacation adventures, delicious dinner photos, babies, weddings and funny memes! I LOVE THEM ALL! And, in the spirit of keeping my FB timeline a positive space in the social media maelstrom, I will add the sixth installment of my diet progress to my digital footprint.
