There's this thing that I do -- that I'm sure many other people do -- that I call "falling down the rabbit hole." It's where I get on-line with the express purpose of working (doing something with my on-line classes), but I decide to check on one blog before I get to work. That one blog has an interesting post that begs to be commented upon, so I comment. And I read all the other comments; some of which are fascinating and insightful. Which requires that I follow the links to that person's blog and check out their postings, and often make comments on those. Every time I do this I discover new and wonderful blogs, learn really interesting facts (especially about climate change), get to read great poetry, see beautiful photographs, listen to wonderful songs.
Next thing I know it's six hours later, I haven't done any work, I haven't gone to the grocery store, and it's pouring rain outside. I feel like Alice, emerging from some alternative universe.
