I’m making a prediction:  2013 is going to be one hell of a year.  A different kind of year.  A year of less of this and more of that.

FOR EXAMPLE

Less Facebook and more face time.  Facebook is starting to feel like being a peeping tom, like I’m looking in someone’s windows when they don’t know I’m there.  People’s Facebook posts can be benign, sure, but there’s also the painfully stupid and inflammatory.  And once you’ve seen those things you wish you’d never seen?  It’s too late.  You can’t ever, ever get them out of your head.  When I want to know what you’re up to, I’m going to go all old-fashioned and call you up!  Voice to voice!

Less TV and more music.  Aside from the few shows I actually enjoy and look forward to — Homeland, Downton Abbey, sports — TV is pretty much a dead zone.  And no, I will never watch Honey Boo Boo or that show with the Duck family.  I’d rather listen to this?

Less watching that spinning gray circle on my phone that says “checking for new mail” and “connecting,” because, really, isn’t it terribly disappointing when you get nothing (what? no one’s thinking about me?!) or, even worse, just more spam?

No new messages.

Less breaking news and politics and more sitting in the silence with a great book.  In the new landscape of iReporters and anonymous comment sections, there’s just too much noise and all that noise is getting in the way of my sanity.  I’m craving real news and real stories by real writers.  In fact, here’s what I’m reading now, so I’m off to a good start ….
