There isn’t much we keep hidden anymore. Nearly all of us, at least here in the US, have social media accounts, digital histories, and work/life balance issues. Jobs are different, homes are different, families are different, and privacy is different.
For the most part, none of that seems to matter. Hell, I try to write here daily, and over the past year have succeeded more often than not.
But I still keep things back. We all keep things back. Whether it’s the masks we wear (metaphorically speaking), or our desire to maintain a modicum of privacy in our personal lives, it’s almost always important to have a safe harbor to return to.
We do so much in the light now. But, every once in awhile, it’s good to find shade.
