It was a grey day although it was at least dry. This lovely litchen was the only spot of colour but isn't it lovely?
I read an article in the paper at the weekend here which was about whether or not on-line networks such as Facebook are diminishing us as humans. I had to wonder whether many of the criticisms levelled at Facebook might also apply to blogging.
The author said that "skimming people lightly but in greater number can be hard work" and is giving rise to what some call "online sociability fatigue" and he goes on to suggest that "the ties we form through the internet are not, in the end, the ties that bind but they are the ties that preoccupy".
I have to say that a walk in the real world with a real live friend beats sitting in front of the computer chatting to virtual friends any day!
