A Strange Place

It's a whole different world out there.

Social media. It’s a strange place.

A place where an apology can result in being blocked by a so-called friend. Where mention of something proposed an ocean away can trigger an overreaction so extreme that a guy who always seemed nice and normal now comes across as a complete nutcase. Where folks who get together in person for coffee every week can have such a heated disagreement that they end their longstanding friendship — over a discussion of a movie.

But it’s also a place where people meet, become friends, and sometimes fall in love.

It’s a strange, wonderful place. A strange, scary place. A strange, sad place.

Mostly, it’s just a strange place.
