I respect what you said.
And seeing as I’ve been putting pieces of my soul out to absolute silence — to unhearing ears, I’d be inclined if not to agree with you then to at least say it’s a terrible, difficult choice.
But I can’t shake the feeling that it is a move in the right direction. (And I don’t mean this in some oh-this-is-the-future-why-run-away-from-it way.)
No, I mean the net has a role to play. I agree absolutely — you’ll see that in my primary motif of ‘noise’. The way you put it was too kind, if anything. The noise is drowning out any art, any goodness online.
But I believe that is merely a stage of development. First the waters are muddy, then they settle.
I see a Jungian progress in all this. Things becoming more conscious. I don’t know if that makes sense to you.
Anyway, all the very best to you, my friend. We’re all in this together.
