Wild Things!

It's strange, but the only judgement which counts, in the end, is your own.

Over the course of the last year I've withdrawn from several Internet 'discussion groups' because of the combative nature of the 'discussions'.

Shakespeare has been at the centre - and people's interpretations of the work.

The vicious attacks on views which differ from those held by certain individuals resemble the fighting over politics seen on occasions on the t.v.

There is no restraint.

It is almost as if it is an attack on what one thinks about a play - or what one sees in a text - is an attack on one’s identity.

I am not exactly a delicate flower, but I don’t wish to be subjected to abuse from individuals unknown – so, from now on, it’s the Blog and nothing but the Blog!

Coming Alive

A new life in the country has floored my online experiences for quite a while now.

Slowly coming back into cyberspace but it is going to take time and I suspect a slower more restrained contribution - although outburst likely.

Weather here in Romania been rotten - distinct drought - and never seems to have raised any interest outside the place - minor storms in the US headline news.

Being on the fringe does mean something here - the edge of what though?
