Well, I am trying to get my blog going again on this new laptop. Cross your fingers, please?
I think I am officially a dinosaur. Our daughter says I am not. I feel like one. So many things going on the world of pop culture today about which I am clueless. I hear catch words and try to remember them long enough to write them down. I have to write them down if I have any hope of getting to my computer to look on line for an explanation. She says I am not a dinosaur because I am still interested to know about things even if I don’t care to participate. I appreciate her generosity.
I have been dabbling in some additional social media sites. I am trying to figure out Twitter. I can follow and unfollow. I can like. I can look at links. But, I don’t know how to re-tweet or initiate a tweet to someone correctly or how to tweet back at someone.
I have been working on figuring out Tumblr. I like that it is similar to Instagram but has the blog connection often lacking on Instagram. I love Instagram, of course. Just lovely photos flowing along for the most part.
Pinterest is great and very familiar. I maneuver in it just fine. I enjoy it. Not being one who can just pin and pin without reviewing what I have pinned, it becomes work sometimes. I like to edit and resort and delete. I confess I use secret boards more often than the public boards. Just because it is a tool I like to use to sort out ideas and focus intentions.
I want to upgrade my WordPress to a dot net. I think that will be my birthday present to myself. It was less than twenty dollars for the year last time I paid attention. I have aspirations to create a specific logo for Raining Orchids. You know, tee shirts, hats, stationery. Ha! Ha! Just for fun. Additional creative flow.
Still, one of my favorite things to do when I want to be quiet and still is to color. I have one of those new adult coloring books and map pencils. That is okay. But what I really like is my bag of Crayola crayons and my Disney coloring book. I bought it years ago and am slowly coloring each page in order through the book. The bright colors, the smell of the crayons, the soothing rhythm of rubbing the wax onto the paper all work together to create magic for me.
To each his or her own. I like the technical world of social media. And I love the innocent world of crayons and coloring books. Just because I do. Not going to analyze this. Just going to savor the moments. Dinosaur or not, I am still exploring. Still asking questions. Still learning. Still loving life. Not yet a fossil.
