Wonderment and life…..

Greetings…it’s been two weeks.  I’ve been busy and it’s only going to be more busy around here until after Thanksgiving.  We have house guests coming and we need to do some deep cleaning.  I have finished one journal page in two weeks. I am taking an online class with Jane Davenport.  I am enjoying the class videos a lot but I haven’t had time to really try anything.  I’m currently viewing the videos on colored pencils…she gives a whole new meaning to colored pencils 🙂

Remarks made at a recent family dinner:  “No one under the age of 40 reads blogs anymore.”  “I never check my email but about once a month.”  “Everyone’s on FaceBook.” There were a few political remarks made that are better left unrepeated…ha!  I sat through most of them because I was outnumbered and it’s best not to discuss politics with family unless you are in total agreement, of course 🙂

I do not have a FaceBook account and I do not plan on getting one in the near future.  I know that many of my family members use FB to keep up with family and friends. I am a private person and really don’t like my business  “out there.”   And, as for blogs, I don’t know who reads blogs or not…I know that I have several blogs that I am in the habit of visiting.

I was reading an excerpt from a short story, Friend Request, by David Wailing.  The time was in the future, 2022, and they had something called a Smartscreen on every wall in the house and when someone came to the house for the ongoing party,  it would flash their profile on the screen with name, gender, age range, orientation, and relationship status.  Some people were wearing GoogleGlasses or something similar with a constant online feed. There were other devices that people were wearing to keep up with their “friends.”  Amazing, but,  probably not that off base.

    I always enjoy seeing all your drawings…the journal page and the Hybrid Technica pen girl are my favs.

    I don’t do Facebook either. I just don’t like it and I’m a fairly private person, too.

    I keep hearing that too about blogs & email but it doesn’t seem like there is a decline. I have a FB page for my eventual business but I don’t do anything with my personal account as I only like to share on my blog about specific things. Have a wonderful T-Day if we don’t “speak” before then. Lol.
