Blog, Facebook, Twitter and all things such….

One of my favorite movie lines comes from Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. Jack Aubry (played by Russell Crowe) is the captain of a early 19th century British Man of War. He comments on what a fascinating modern age it is that he lived in! If only he knew!!! My friends and I have been excitedly playing around with blogging, Facebook and now Twitter. You know that things are a little too intricately connected when you can type a text on your phone and send it to update your status on your blog, Facebook page and Twitter account! I have to say it….I LOVE IT!! Some of you may think that I am wasting time or naval gazing as one colleague once put it, but I believe I am in the people business and as voyeuristic as some may perceive it to be, I think it all helps to build and keep connected! My maternal grandmother has letters that my grandfather wrote to her while he was stationed in Germany during WWII. She still has those letters even though my grandfather has been dead for almost 20 years. I wonder if this new way of staying connected will foster that same kind of dynamic in all of our lives only in a new way??
