I know, I know, from time to time I tell you about taking another hiatus from the news. Let’s see how long I can keep this renewed habit going. Not to worry. I have enough contact out there in the world to keep me informed; my husband will shout out breaking news and a Face Book friend will post a headline.
There is a great deal of buzz about FB. I’m not going to get into the politics/negativity of it all, but I want to mention one of its positive benefits. For me it is a way that I keep up with groups of friends: elementary and high school friends, family, church, teachers, to name a few. Some friends are part of my current everyday life, others are from the past Either way, I love keeping connected.
One of my most rewarding groups is composed of kindergarteners and first and second graders that I taught back in the day. I love hearing from these compassionate, caring, literate adults who are contributing positively to society.
Enough about FB. Next time I’ll share some those things that bring me peace.
