I love the internet

I've posted about two women doing wonderful things in their chosen fields of interest, over on my blog. Every once in awhile it strikes me anew how there are all these marvelous people doing such fun and fascinating things and I would never know about them without the internet. I love living in the future!

Ada Palmer is a Renaissance scholar, novelist, and composer. She's written and recorded a song about working to get humans into outer space that had me weeping with its truth and joy.

Felicity Ford is a soundscape artist who is also a knitter and textile designer. She just finished up a successful Kickstarter campaign for a beautiful book she's making about designing knit patterns based on your surroundings.

There's more about both women, and links to their stuff, on my blog.

It's amazing, isn't it? Oh and Felix, of Knitsonik, has started a Ravelry Group! Search on "Knitsonik."

I love your avatar - is that lovely shady lane near you?

I tell you, dear, it is easy to become adicted to the internet and I really must keep myself short:-)
In the picture you can see one of very rare "deep lanes" - it used to be the only way to a town (Třeboň)which is 8 km from Spolí. People travelled by carts and brought cattle, pigs,poultry and crops to a local market. That´s why it is still called "Town way". Our prestent road was built in 30s of 20th century.
The lower part of the lane is literally covered by wild greenery, it looks like a tunnel, doesn´t it? Higher, the foliage disappears and there is only grass on the top but it goes down again and enters the forest and then goes on along a big manmade lake. It is a favourite tourist route and my and Badík´s !:-)
