I often wish we could go back to simpler times. Back before the internet was a thing. Back before social media changed the fabric of society. Back when the best part of my day was sitting quietly with my little boy in the sandbox for a lazy hour of pouring, molding, sifting... with nothing but songbirds and frogs and Canadian pines making noise. That was inevitably followed by falling asleep together in the hammock without a care in the world.
I watched a movie last night called The Circle. It's been on my mind a lot today. No one ever saw us doing these things. There's no picture of it and no video... and I don't have a hundred comments telling me that it's adorable and awesome and some of the best moments of my life.
I just knew.
I really don't always think we're ok down here.
