It is an evocative word. We are a culture always looking over the horizon, perhaps losing sight of what we have left behind.
It is as though we feel time heavy at our backs and press on as if to escape it and our own mortality.
"Clocks slay time... time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life."
When I first started my blog, I would look at the label up at the top: NEXT BLOG.
I would hit my cursor over it and cyber-surf my way across the world. Sweden. New Zealand. Japan. Brazil. The Virgin Islands.
I stopped when the world pressed in heavy upon me. I decided to try it again tonight. I went on quite a journey --
First, I chanced upon Light Reading:
with its spotlight on the evocative photo narrative of (One Cat – Three Lives)
What hit me most was the photographer's final lament under his cat, Meeno, and the feline's last picture:
“I am an atheist and don’t believe in life after death. But if there ever is one, I would like to hold Meeno one more time, please.”
Next I stumbled across the mystery-loving Karen at
She works at a community library and besides teen fiction, she also loves Euro Crime mysteries.
My next port of call was
The Coachella Valley Art Scene which was colorful, lively, and intriguing:http://www.thecoachellavalleyartscene.com/
The tap of the ever-roaming cursor brought me to Elysabeth and another blog where I learned a bit more about turning an ebook into an audio book athttp://elysabethsstories.blogspot.com/
And if you think I have a few books to my credit, check out Paula Graves, Harlequin author:http://spinstersandlunatics.blogspot.com/
The hour was late, but I was still curious. I hit NEXT BLOG again and found:
CRITICIZE THIS. It was a fascinating, professionally done blog reviewing movies, music, and even comics and books!http://www.criticizethis.ca/
With heavy eyes, my cursor hit one last time and stumbled across my last find.
I loved the blog title:
Absinthe Minded with its news and views on European Literature, Art, and Film:http://absinthenew.blogspot.com/
Have you ever roamed the net of blogs like a cyber pioneer? Let me know if you have. Let me know what you find if you decide to do it now.
