Letter 24: Why I Post Pictures of My Dog and Food on Facebook

Most people perusing my Facebook posts will note that by and large, I confine myself to post about food and our dog. This is intentional. For starters, our dog is cute, and with all the ugliness in this world, we could all use some cuteness. I post about food because nearly everyone I know eats. It’s the rare person who does not eat. As my wife happens to be a very good cook, it also affords me an opportunity to praise her publicly. I like doing that.

Too much of my feed seems to be designed to make me feel guilty or angry. See injured animals or starving children, or perhaps what the stars are doing now. Shouldn’t you be doing more? Then there is the parade, both left and right, of stupid statements or actions by political leaders. Or perhaps it is the revelation of something monstrous about some organization or other. Either way, we are supposed become angry, or fearful, or both.

I figure we get enough of that, and I have no wish to add to these fires of passion. So dogs and food it is. Besides, our dog is really cute.

  1. Your dog IS really cute. (and I admit, I have been doing the same type of posting on instagram…)
