Rocks on the Trail

I had a challenging time in the past couple of weeks, with getting online. This is getting to be a familiar story for most of us from time to time. I won't bore you with details but it was frustrating, working back and forth between my equipment and my service provider and then setting up a new wireless router and getting used to Vista on a new laptop computer.
I think, it safe to say, that my artful career is seriously impeded by not being able to get online. I have become accustomed to writing this blog, and checking out favourite art websites. Suddenly, I found myself undergoing a cultural return to the good old days BC (before computers). I read more and possibly even painted a bit more - and might have even watched more television. (perish the thought). Strange when you think of it, that rocks on the trail have now taken on a new cultural dimension.
