Over the river and through the woods…

Well, actually I didn’t have to go that far. My grandma lived within sight of my house out in the Kansas prairie. Below is a map from my house to hers. It was a vast 1/4 mile to get there.

AEDM Day 4

The buzz for the day over at An Attitude of Gratitude is about social media. How interesting that a friend and I just discussed that today. We were both sharing how we noticed that computer time in general turned off our relational circuitry.

Lately I really have been using all social media less. I just sort of lost interest. Perhaps that’s a good thing. But I am very thankful for the networking capabilities. A high school friend of mine and I were reunited after 20 years of no communication. We had lost each other. Needless to say, tears of joy flowed that day. I also appreciate how easy it is to send a message to someone, or share in a group format. Yes, there are definite benefits. But I also don’t like that way it clutters my brain. As with most things, there is give and take.

And with that, I wish you all a happy Art Every Day Month – Day 5!

    So interesting you’re talking about social media. I’m writing/creating around that tomorrow. And the first thing I thought when I saw your art journal pages was, “wow, wish I could see/touch that in person.”

    What a beautiful memory page. I have to say I feel the same about social media, I have a facebook account but don’t use it at all, it is just there so I have a presence incase anyone wants to get in touch. BJ

    This is a beautiful page. I love the colors.

    I haven’t been online as much lately. Tristan is crawling and almost walking. He takes way more of my time… and when he finally goes to bed at night, I am tired too. I miss the networking. But, I know that virtual networking is far inferior to as in real life.

    Love your page. We lived on the same yard in the country as my husband’s grandparents so our 3 children grew up a hop and a skip away from their great-grands. What a blessing! Love your page!
