My 30s is definitely revisit-able. Weaned myself off Facebook but plunged deep into 100 Words and Instagram. So, shrug. I had posted about the death of a loved once and never did it again, because however great the sadness is, there is no reason to share it with strangers, really. Before this practice was normal, how did families handle and disseminate news on the death of a loved one? I remember thumbing through my grandaunt's address book, calling her friends, wake and funeral details, etc. A business-like approach necessary to contain a crumbling world, stem the tide. Float.
