I am listening to this beautiful poetic speech by Maya Angelou about her mother.  It's inspiring me so I think some of you might find it also inspirational.

The photos of Lewis Carroll
Did you know that Lewis Carroll, or rather as he was really called Charles Dodgson,  was a photographer?  I did not!  Apparently, he started taking photos in 1856, when he was a young lecturer at Oxford.  It was a fashionable hobby during that time period.  He took many portraits, especially of children.  In this group there are a number of Alice Liddell who was said to be the inspiration for "Alice in Wonderland".

You can read an article about his photography here: http://goo.gl/eske6A

I took this photo a while back of two little weeping angels that seem to be in love with each other.   Look at them as long as you don't blink.   #whovian   #doctorwho

My kids just got out of school for the summer.  This is going to be my next few months.

I plan to try and face it with plenty of humor.   #parenting  #kids

I took this photo about an hour ago on the shore of Lake Washington.  See the comments to this post which discuss the Boeing facility also in the picture.    #pnw

Digitally Exploring the Cyber Universe
Introduction

 I have been digitally exploring the online Universe since 1997.  I am using Google+ as a blog as well as a creative outlet

  • I enjoy making memes
  • I try and write funny stories
  • I write about technology
  • I write about books
  • I like meeting new Plussers from all over the world and engaging with them
  •  I am actively  trying to help create a peaceful global community on Google+
Follow me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/maria.sommerfield
A little bit about me you might like to know:

I am a mother of three small children and a wife of over 10 years; this is one of the most important parts of my identity and while I don't often write about my family this does not mean they are not an extremely important part of my life.  I have a degree in computer science, and am a certified systems administrator.  I love technology and the internet, and have been actively participating in social media before anyone even came up with that term.  I am a very avid reader, and I am fairly athletic.  I enjoy running and yoga as well as any outdoor activity.  I study mycology as a hobby and have been a ballroom dancer for many years, although lately I don't have a lot of time for dancing.   I have recently become a vegan and am experimenting with a plant based diet.

I do my best to be engaging and I really value all my readers.  Thank you for checking out my profile, I hope to meet you in cyberspace.
