Rodney Frazier: ‘Mindfully generous’

Knowing what to say about a text you’ve read, or art you’ve appreciated, can be challenging.

Of your online presence and interactions, you might be asking yourself: Should you always tend toward a “like and share”? Will people not believe you if you “like” almost everything you see? Will people get bored of your posts if you “share” too often? Is silence sometimes more meaningful? Or more mindful?
