Day 10 ~ Magic is Happening Here

Becoming our own Mixed Media Collage of the Survivors

Making Progress

The muses were awake last night putting some magic on the Map while listening to Sylvan Esso NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert.

As I worked on this I was thinking about our connectivity. 
Despite recent discontent with technology, I remain in awe of the way that I have witnessed the Survivors Sharing and posting on the Facebook Thread for the Map of the Survivors~ Survivors from Australia connecting with Survivors in Arkansas, Survivors in Mongolia connecting with Survivors in New York, Survivors in South Africa connecting to Survivors in Colorado... it is one of the greatest benefits of the world wide web for us to find that in spite of the isolating and lonely consequences of arachnoditis, we are not alone.
