I deleted my Facebook account after the 2016 election. Too many friends, who really weren’t, voted for Trump, exposing who they really are. Plus, the political feeds and Facebook group posts were overwhelming. I started a new account a couple of months later, limiting my friends to those with whom I want to share photos and a few creative people who inspire and entertain me. Went from 300 friends to 30. Thirty that matter.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
