We have to worry about the weather. Most of our volunteers are senior citizens and they walk very gingerly.
Alberta is right, that treating senior citizens gingerly isn’t always easy. While some remain young at heart and reasonable, others are less capable, frankly, in some situations.
I’m in operations at a not-for-profit cemetery (in fact, you can find us elsewhere on the Internet at http://maplelawncemeteryorg.ipage.com/oldchurchcemetery/24701.html). It is somewhat taxing doing such funeral work, but the serenity of the environment and the relative freedom I have in addition to the work I do make it worthwhile.
November 28 of this month celebrates Giving Tuesday, which is like a holiday for not-for-profits (chiefly in the US, but elsewhere as well, I should think). I am posting to Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/LouthUnited) as well as to Twitter (my page is https://twitter.com/findingenvirons). It is true that Twitter is busy unrolling its new vision for its tweets.
The new tweets will be up to two hundred and eighty characters in length compared to how they were, for ten years, which was tweets up to a hundred and forty characters. I am not sure how Twitter will fare in the future with this disregard for tradition (a decade’s tradition) evident.
Many Internet users rely on Facebook, and on Twitter, for their news (as in the case, for example, they wish to be good citizens). Twitter’s reputation will most likely change as new developments there come up, but while Twitter appeals to someone like me, whose forty years old and been on the Internet since before the days of Napster, it is discouraging.
If I were to relent a little for the sake of a greater good for my family, who are supportive of the decisions I make, and for the cemetery, which is operated efficiently and consistently, perhaps I would abandon Twitter now. I don’t want to, however.
Today’s WordPress Daily Prompt is the word gingerly and because I think the WordPress prompts are great, I thought I would venture to blog again thoughts I have.
