On the Facebook

Well, I’ve taken the plunge: I’m on Facebook. While my publisher has been encouraging me to do this for a while, what pushed me over the edge was closer to home: our oldest son has gone to college, and the low-grade mourning I’ve suffered in his absence was just enough to cloud my faculties and enable me to sign-up as an attempt to stay in touch with him.

I’m hoping the kids will give me some tutorials over the weekend, because right now I’m pretty much completely lost–roaming around clicking, sharing, liking, friending without direction or discretion. I suspect I’ll always feel more comfortable in the more static, sequestered environs of the blogosphere.
