Dear actual friends, FB friends, insurrectionary superheroes, muses, organizer geniuses, feminist avengers, storytellers, servants of holy beauty, scholars and thinkers (and legions of querulous strangers and authoritarian trolls), I’m taking a weeklong break from FB starting tomorrow, and then we’ll see. Social media is a weird waystation or limboland between real introspection, time with one’s own thoughts and creative work, and real extroversion via tactile, direct, embodied contact with actual people, places, and things. Also: book project, archives, uninterrupted ideas. But I’ll be back. And no, I’m not freaking about the inauguration or going into hiding; I’ve been an activist for a third of a century, and I am in for the duration, and I’ll see some of you on the streets Saturday. – Rebecca Solnit
