"Local" watercolour  from Instagram, February 2014


I have been spending time on my blog, and doing a 'Blog School', through the absurdly lovely Pip Lincolne of *meetmeatmikes.com fame...sensibly, this is called "Blog with Pip".Self explanatory, really.So if you notice some changes, this is why. 

There is a forum for us bloggy people newbies to chat and talk..., ask questions, seek assurance that we are not the only one stumbling around in the dark in Blogland. Excellent of course...(get the pun?)

Add this group to my Facebook and Instagram little posse, and I now have quite a few people who I know and think about, know and chat with, whose opinions I value....and yet of course, have never met

Which of course leads straight back to the amazingness of me, sitting in my PJ's in country NSW, sitting at a computer, punching some buttons, and being able to connect with all of these other people hither and tither all over. They are my new locals?Yes? We do not share a cuppa over the back fence, but over a screen. It is amazing , and scary, and wonderbar.

Local? Global? maybe GLOBOCAL...
Either way, it makes my headspin.
(or is it just a caffeine rush?)
