Taking a break from DU

I decided to take a break from DU and news for that matter. I realized the best part of this year for me was when I unplugged myself for two months in February-March, no news, not even NPR, music only and just focus on the family. Doing so really helped clear my mind, improve mood and gain fresh perspective on things.

DU and virtually all the news have become echo chambers devoid of any deviating points of view with strong focus on negativity.

2. I'm going to try to spend even more time on the DU board

to make up for Alex's absence. Floyd is too, apparently. Keep those posts up, Floyd!

It was getting to me too until I realized you can't beat them but you can join them.
