Streams of Life

About a week ago, I was invited to join Googleplus.  I commented on said platform, as well as on twitter, that I have so many streams now, who has time for life?   I don’t really feel that way–I have a wonderful life full of non-social media things. But it at times consumes me. I can’t help myself, I love new endeavors, and I love figuring things out and playing on the computer.

So I drew the above cartoon in response to my new multi-streamed life. The little girl in the cartoon will probably have a completely different array of ways to interact with her colleagues and friends. I look forward to watching it all unfold.

    With so many kids now having so little contact with nature, this cartoon can be
    viewed from multiple angles. Personally, I’m nostalgic for the reverse scenario:
    wherein social media would have to be explained in terms of the real, live stream
    shown in your cartoon. (Even though, I too, enjoy computing.) I suppose we must
    “go with the flow”.
