Here are some things that interest me, and I hope they interest you, too. Even more innumerable than sand grains and stars... Have you noticed a proliferation of newspapers becoming magazines and magazines becoming newsletters, and none of this is on paper, it’s online and in your inbox, and too much? Like walk-on characters in a beloved series suddenly given full shows of their own, star writers are given entire weekly newsletters sent to your email. It’s a thing now.
Yes, you and I are sending out little tendrils of connection in very similar ways. Musing together when our hearts are connecting. Whatever way that happens, I'm for it!
Love the Marvin Gaye reference. Also a big fan of the Shroud of Turin. I like the way that sounds. Do you think there's more and more out there from people who are overwhelmed by incoming? There certainly should be. Thank you for articulating the overwhelm.
Carol, I was so glad to see your newsletter, it popped right out on my laptop. I so relate to what you are saving and feeling, what a marvellous concept for the big and little dippers. Your musings on networks, or heaps, aggregates, or collections or groupings. Or fragments. I like to start with the human experience of circle, circle of supports that interact with other circles of support.
Anyway, thank you, glad you are writing and sharing your beautiful musings.
This is great. I've saved it so that I can come back to it and re-read. "Since my inboxes are already hyper-saturated I have to ignore these until I finally admit defeat and unsubscribe" I'm the same, but I'm trying to not do that. The trouble is -- and it's a nice problem to have -- is that there is so much great writing to read these days.
