Vacation Without the Distraction of Social Media

Sometimes, we have to take a break from blogging and social media. This is one of those times.

I’m visiting my twenty-somethings kids in Denver. Really visiting and being present with them when they are with me. So I’ve haven’t posted photos on Facebook, Instagram or elsewhere.

For social media upload it takes me a couple of minutes (seconds for my kids) to edit and upload the pics. That’s per post.

Not posting photos is difficult because everything is in bloom here and I found some inspiring exhibits at the Denver Art Museum: Women of Abstract Expressionism and Why We Dance: American Indian Art in Motion. I’ll share them another time.

My kids love to take photos and use Snapchat, so they apply endless filters and special effects on the pics.

This enhances some photos, but the ones of me end up being morphed into a chipmunk or face exchanged or with hearts on my eyes. Not funny. And don’t get me started on the geo-filters. Makes me miss vacations with the kids before they had cell phones.

Have a great weekend. Replenish and revive.

See you in a week.
