Hello again and apologies. Over the past year or so there have been computer issues, then no computer. It has been a interesting learning curve to realise just how dependant we have become on technology for daily life. As yet I am not convinced this is totally beneficial.
On one hand it opens a vast exciting opportunity to connect, learn and share while on the other it can lead to social isolation,the need for instant gratification and manipulation.By connecting to the ether we can become disconnected from daily life ,time and reality as well as lose social skills .
My techno time out has been useful, and has offered more time to reflect, observe, create, discover and garden. As yet I have not replaced the computer it has been too busy living in a more basic and earthy world!
