Not just there for the trivial things in life

Sorry, been a bit quiet here. Like everyone else, I have been totally immersimg myself in Facebook as a means of self-expression recently.

Particularly using the mobile version m.facebook.com, which I hugely recommend, it's even easier to put up slightly witty trivia about yourself - maintaining the illusion that your life is more intersting than it really is. Digital melodrama.

But while looking through my friends list, one status message stood out today:

[person x*] is in love with his wife.

And I thought, that's it. Simple stuff that matters. Substance and sincerity. We don't see enough of that on facebook. And perhaps we need to be reminded to save ourselves from our own worst tendencies.

* The anonymity's probably not really needed here, but just in case.
