I'm now two weeks out from quitting Twitter, and it's feeling great. Thus far, I haven't replicated the experience in Mastodon, and I don't feel any compulsion to try to do so.


I mentioned over in the marmot that I'm reading Stolen Focus, a book about distraction in the digital age, and I wanted to mention something that caught my eye there:

Simone de Beauvoir said that when she became an atheist, it felt like the world had fallen silent.

I would say that since I've quit Twitter, I've begun to hear the divine voice again.

Faintly, but it's there.
