As you can see, I am back online.Â The silver lining was the people who commented – thank you so much! All night I was dreaming of dsl modems working correctly. So grateful when I woke up to find it a reality!!
Well of Dreams, Digital Â© Diane Clancy
This well is so much clearer than my mind. At last today there are lots of projects that I can do but nothing is totally breathing down my neck. I was a little panicked about not having internet connection – partly because I have run into a technical glitch with a project – and online is where I know how to find answers.
But it is a little shocking toÂ me how much I depend on the web now. Socially, artistically, technically, for research – that’s what comes to mind immediately. And I am not in my 20’s … or 30’s … or …. But it has become so much part of my life and my business. I have friends offline … but this too is important to me. And finding info is SO much easier online!!
It is a very different world than it used to be.Â Any thoughts?

Hi Diane! I am baaaack and so are you!! Yay!! I am exhausted but I promise I will write to you as soon as possible. Sorry abt your troubles!. It was tough being overseas although I could get on line. Somehow, I feel I am closer now to you and all the online friends. You are right: it’s funny and weird how we have become dependent on this technology. My best to you…Talk to you soon 🙂
I love this piece, it’s like batik – very nice
I am completely hooked on the internet, and the connection it’s giving me to the world. I’m even finding myself turning to it for reference (although I don’t trust half of what I read or see), things that used to take forever now that a few minutes to get done, click, click and you know where to find the best deal, how to get there, how much it’s going to cost you. Amazing
I’m hooked too. Aside from the “college” experience I really don’t think there is any need for people to physically attend a university anymore. I wonder what things will be like for my daughter (she is 19 mos. old) when it is time for her to start schooling…will everything be a pod cast? I hope so. I don’t want her to ever leave the house 🙂
Well, I am certainly hooked and I don’t depend on it for my living. I am not a true artist like the rest of you, I am just hooked on it. I am glad that you are back on line sharing your images with us. I am always curious about what there will be next. I like today’s image very much. I love the colors of it. I still have to learn how to do that mirroring four ways.
And I have been spending time the last several days trying to decide whether to bring my laptop on our southwest vacation (it starts in an hour with Maddie driving us to the airport)! My biggest desire was to share photos with Michael from our past trips together, but I also was imagining taking time to check e-mail before Susan wakes up, seeing if anyone has responded to my latest post on my blog, etc…So it was actually a bit of a relief, since I couldn’t decide what to do, that I realized this morning that if I took the computer it would have to spend time sitting in the car baking at temperatures over 100 degrees, which I concluded upon further reflection, could not be good for it. So I am going unwired, though it was incredibly timely that your post this morning would be all about how much we have come to rely on our computers and our internet connections. I loved your latest computer generated image. Have a fine week.
I love technology and frankly don’t know what I would do without it. I live far away from many of my friends and family and especially with different time zones there is nothing like communicating over the internet. I still like a nice letter in the mail once in a while but, truth be told, I’ve been so dependent on technology for so long I don’t even think about questioning that. On the morning of Sept. 11th, with my family knowing I often worked in lower Manhattan, and no long distance phone service available to me, where would I have been if not for the internet? I was able to email them and let them know I was ok. I don’t know about you, but I’m very glad we’ve got this lovely tool, and very excited to be moving into using it more with my own web page.
Diane, thanks for all your help this week setting up my web page and I’m so glad you are back online.
