I had weaned myself some time ago from spending precious intervals of time consumed in its scrolling addiction. I did however; continue to slightly dip my toe in trying to circulate a few moments of positivity. This was a gurgle of my thoughts. I made my splash without looking to see the ripple effect of likes, or getting caught up within any negative quagmire. Nevertheless, in the spring when the new anarchy of negativity exploded, I found myself implementing my own means of social distancing. I det
