My resident expert says that both blogging and Twitter are becoming passé: Blogging because no one has time for peeking in on others' lives, hobbies and thoughts; and Tweeting because it has turned into a ferocious culture-war battleground, where even the non-participants are vilified for not taking sides. I am not party to the latter, but I have seen evidence of the former. I hear that new platforms of communication are constantly replacing the old, some of those being now Instagram and Photo Stream and various "chat" things whose names I do not know.
I am thinking that this blog has passed its prime, too. It has been an interesting year. I have enjoyed seeing your lives and works and places where you live and go. It has been good to see some of you doing art works you would not otherwise have done. I hope you have had some enrichment or amusement in these pages, too.
Now I would appreciate your response: if this blog ended about the time one year after it started -October sometime - would it matter much to you? I do know what some of you said last time I asked this, about not posting frequently and "do what you want" and all that. I don't think it is worthwhile having a blog at haphazard intervals. I am not posting for myself. I am wondering what you think.
I thought it might be nice to see everyones' Christmas once more, but that is the busiest time, so I don't know if that is feasible. We can look in on each other through Instagram - which I personally check monthly, to catch up. And e-mail still exists.
Anyway, I give this a month, more or less.
SO, yesterday being church-at-our-place day and today being cleaning day, with no art time for me - though MARY had some! - we go back to the BALTICS tour.
|And some with critters on top|
|Note the top|
|Faces in the city|
|Looking back from one spot....|
|....and looking forward from the same spot.|
|Folks on the street|
|And random passers-by|
|maybe a hippo|
|And storks. These are all made out of rocks and steel. ART.|
Have a happy day.
