Another Creative Cousin


People can say what they want about the pointlessness of social media, and I was no different before I decided to get involved with it.

I was looking for a friend I'd lost contact with over the years, this happened for no reason other than my own lack of effort to continue to nuture and value an important friendship. In this day of instant communication and fast paced life styles it is easy to loose sight of the importance of keeping in touch.

My mother use to say you can have several acquaintances but if you have a few close friends, then consider yourself very blessed. She was right speaking these words of wisdom. I have come to realize that it is so vital to nurture and value relationships with others, especially with friends and family. Relationships are what count the most in this life.

Social media allows for the opportunity to reunite, rekindle friendships, family bonds and even connect with relatives we never knew and to even make new friendships. I don't believe it is a replacement for face to face interaction but it certainly helps to keep those lines of communication open.

Today I met another creative cousin I'd never met before, through social media, who is a very talented photographer, and I have posted a link to his website. Peace of The North Photo Art
