I (heart) Facebook
(some stitching done during vacation -- you'll probably see these pop up on new projects . . .)
I have succumbed to the charms of Facebook. My husband Chris has been on it for a while, and has loved catching up with old friends there. I've avoided it because I already spend way too much time on the computer, and am trying to keep my screen time to a "reasonable" amount (oh, say, less than two hours a day).
But an old friend from long ago turned up last week, and I realized that if I wanted to truly catch up with her, it would be easier to do it on Facebook. I suspected there were a lot of other friends out there, too, and I haven't been disappointed. What a pleasure it is to meet these folks once again! The connections are a joy. I'm also happy that I can opt out of a lot of the clutter of Facebook (games, groups, quizzes, etc.), and not miss anything that matters to me.
Maybe the twenty-first century is going to have more of a human touch than I thought.
