Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

Did you know?

Ok, my mind is boggled now.


I think that despite all the challenges and fears, it's a good thing. I say that when I look at my facebook friends page and see those wonderful people I've never met in person, side by side with old friends, colleagues, and students/former students. I am learning new blessings in "community" and I am starting to truly understand "being united in baptism!"

This was made in '06-'07 and now over 2 years later, imagine what the figures would be. (I don't think Facebook had come into existence then, and certainly Twitter hadn't.)
The children are the ones who are going to have to figure out how to save the World, if it's not already too late, as most of the adults are still too busy trying to destroy it, one way or another.

Actually both facebook and twitter do go back that far.

Facebook especially has been around for a while, but it was limited to people who had a university (.edu) domain email address. College students viewed it as a "grown up" my space and regulars were terribly offended when it was opened to high schoolers, and then the general public.

Twitter was lurking but really burst out when texting and the iphone generation took off.

My stepdaughter (19) was a hard core myspace user, but her life is all itouch and cell phone driven internet is SO passée.
