Thin Social Space: Only Joy

Kiersten Rickenbach Cerveny and husband Andrew

There is a thin space between joy and sadness. As human beings we know this. We know this because we wake up in the morning and go to sleep at night. In between we are living people. Joy and sadness (that is actual and real) travel with us in that big time between bed events. And in that living people space there is a keyboard. A thin keyboard.

An online presence that depicts joy seems to often hide or diminish the actuality of sadness. But sadness is a normal human condition. Hiding sadness with pretend joy is also normal. Hiding sadness with highly publicized only-joy might be a new thing.

An interesting article here from Maureen Callahan [see here] at the New York Post (NYP). The embedded video in her NYP article is included below for convenience.
