… that Charlotte at Waltzing Matilda articulated beautifully!
I feel left behind in this whole social networking craze. I once defended the internet because it was a way to build community where there was none but now, I see many friends I have communicated with in thought and word via blogs turning to social networking and in turn, neglecting their blogs. So I tried popping onto Facebook via my husband’s page (which he doesn’t ever use) and just couldn’t get into it. It was all jumbled up and not very orderly which made me feel like I needed to tidy up and declutter. If I want to feel like that, I just have to walk into my kids’ bedrooms! Then, I opened up a Twitter account, tried to pop around and see what people were talking about… and promptly had a panic attack. Seriously. All the chatter, all the conversation, all the virtual noise and I felt my chest tighten up, my heart race and my breathing get shallower and shallower.

Thank you, Charlotte, for saying what many of us are feeling
