As I was responding to some compliments on pictures I had posted in ravelry I glanced down the list of individuals I was including in my post: New Orleans, Texas, England, Wisconsin, Australia. The internet is just amazing! When I heard about the earthquake in Virginia near DC this year I emailed friends and family in the area. Many responded almost immediately since they got the messages on smart phones. I visualize all these contacts as a globe with arcs from each individual connecting them to me - all part of my community. I just love it! I do believed all life on earth is connected - how nice that with the web we can have contact and exchanges too!
Happy 2012 all!
