“The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.” ~ Rachel Carson http://www.acornoakforest.com/2015/09/01/mindful-life-my-week-in-photos-week-26/
When I have a camera in my hand, I'm more mindful of the world around me. I capture that mindful life in photos. I hope you enjoy my week as much as I did!

See what pyrzcantha looks like year-round. My photos from my garden. 
At least I believe this is a pyracantha, commonly known as firethorn, even though I'd always thought it was a cotoneaster. I looked up cotoneaster in my Sunset Western Garden Book tonight and there was no mention of  thorns. ...

How Facebook, Apple and Twitter are ending online equality.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/WtxBie )

The latest trend in social networking is the rise of elitism.

It's not an elitism that's emerging spontaneously from the everyday social interaction of users. Facebook, Apple and Twitter are intentionally devising a new online world of inequality. This new social media elitism is being trotted out as a "feature."

It's sad, too. Egalitarianism used to be the signature attribute of new media.

While old media was a one-to-many affair (whoever was rich or famous had access to the TV cameras or the newspaper headlines while the rest of us were forced to sit in silence and passively receive their communications), new media was participatory and engendered equality. Even the most self-aggrandizing actor or preening musical diva had to set up a Myspace or Twitter or Facebook account and use the same tools and features as everybody else.

Of course, we all haven't enjoyed complete equality in our reach or influence on social networks. Famous people have generally had larger audiences, and therefore more influence. But when the rich and/or famous have talked to us, we've been able to talk back. New media was different from old media in that it was a level playing field, where all of us -- rich and poor, famous and obscure -- used the same set of social media features, tools and interaction spaces.

Now Facebook, Apple and Twitter are intentionally undoing all of that.

Here's what's going on:

Story
Tagline
Live simply, capturing nature with words and camera.
Introduction

I have lived in and loved California my entire life and now reside on its beautiful Central Coast. The longer I live in San Luis Obispo’s North County, the more contented I become here. Most of my waking hours when I'm  not occupied with chores,  you will find me blogging, reading, walking around with my camera in hand, tending my garden, or dabbling in the local art scene. I hate shopping, and do it only if we will starve if I don't.

Bragging rights
I've been married to the same man for over fifty years and we have loved and been bereaved of two adopted children.
