I can relate. Beaches and rivers do it for me too.
What images help you de-stress? For me, it's lakes. Here's my lake of the day.

Love the notion of "Dark Social" as a web traffic driver. So true!

What a fantastic post by +Alexis C. Madrigal about "Dark Social." This certainly matches my experience. And another dimension - even things that may appear as links from Facebook and Twitter may have first emerged from email and other "dark social" networks.  I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets a great link from a friend via email and then shares it out over Twitter, G+, or Facebook.  

And all these things might overlap.  For example, I saw links to this piece go by on twitter, but there was never enough context for me to follow the link. But when someone sent it to me in email, with a bit more context, I followed the link, read the story, and reshared it here (and will do the same on Twitter.)*

Hoping for a recovery so this girl can keep on fighting.
A bit of hopeful news about Malala, the Pakistani girl whom the Taliban shot because she was advocating for girls' education. A family friend texted me to say that although she is still on a ventilator, she is now moving her feet. It's the first response they've seen from her, and they're very encouraged. Fight on, Malala, we're all hoping and praying for you!
