Okay, this is the shortest posting ever from me. The fact of the rapid growth of community & blog sites etc shows that there is a need for a simple human being like me for example to let the world know that I exist. I see this as a medium to express myself. And of course this kind of site is very useful in tracking long lost friends or even make new ones. Most of the members (so, you too, you who are reading this now!!!) of those sites maintain their account seriously. The undertone by most of them is (hey..hey..covering myself here, I write most of them, not everyone. No generalizing here): how do I get as many views as possible?
My conclusion, sorry my impression is therefore: aren’t we all a bit narcistic by doing this?
The painting shown above is Narcissus made by Caravaggio. The Narcissus from the Grecian tragic Mythe who was drowned in the lake because he wanted to kiss the shadow on the water whom he fell in love with not knowing that was his own shadow on the water. The other pic is The Flower Narcissus, blown at the end of March or beginning of April.
