I seem to remember a song about the world being "one big onion". Personally I think the globe is just a big Docking Station for everybody to download and upload information in order to make their own lives that bit easier. (Apart from providing the resources for humanity and other creatures to stay alive that is.)
What led me to that crazy conclusion???
One of my friends said something which really made me think about how she (and - I would say - the rest of you) uses my blog to find out about me and my "world". This particular lady has known me from school but she - obviously - has no knowledge of what it is like to have my level of sight.
Her utterance about " your world" was quite comforting in a way. After all, how many times have we been told "the world doesn't revolve around you"???
The world in it's entirety does not revolve around us but we all have our own separate "world" which we inhabit - and people will not know everything about our own world unless we choose to tell them about it.
I am probably going to veer off into "Red Dwarf" territory in a minute but I hope you will bear with me.
As you know - I inhabit this strange place called "Inkyworld". (I have recently had a tshirt made with "Welcome To www.inkyworld.co.uk" on the front and "Thank You For Visiting" on the back.)
Inkyworld is full of information about sight, my likes and dislikes, my ethics, morals, and beliefs, as well as certain information I have picked up from meeting other "worlds" which my family and friends inhabit - which I may or may not choose to share with you - etc.
Your own world is personal to you of course. If you have ever let me into your world please accept a grateful virtual hug.
We can all use our worlds to educate and encourage each other. All it takes is a cup of coffee and a chat with someone, a text message, or a dose of Social Media.
How many people can you let into your world to create your own personal "solar system"??? Try it and find out.
