ten sites to share

As children, we thought of the world as so large, so unknown, so adventurous. Before the internet and cable television, our access to that world was limited by books in the library and dated encyclopedias.

The world is still large, unknown in the sense that there is always some new facet to learn, and adventurous, but now more accessible with technology. We have always been connected to each other with a fine web throughout the world. Each event is connected to all others and is felt on some level by each of us. Here are ten of my favorite sites to share with the rest of the world.

  1. Our hold on life is fragile. This site offers each individual a chance to share with others their inner-most secret(s) using a handmade postcard with art and few words. http://postsecret.blogspot.com/

  2. And just when you thought you had it all for your computer or iPod or iPhone...here are some fantastic covers. http://www.gelaskins.com/

  3. Looking for something unusual to buy that's handmade (but above the level of ceramics you did in art class for seventh grade)? Look through this web site. http://www.etsy.com/

  4. Canadian holiday location #1. Winter. Summer. Lodges. Quiet. Nature. Check it out! http://www.goldenalpineholidays.com/

  5. Canadian holiday location #2. Sweet...1938 era with cabins and nature. http://www.outpostlodge.com/

  6. Want to work/teach overseas? This site has many avenues to explore. http://www.escapeartist.com/jobs34/jobs34.htm

  7. Teachers: need some infusion for your language arts lesson plans? have a specific lesson in mathematics you would like a fresh perspective on? Check out this amazing site. http://www.marcopolo-education.org/teacher/teacher_index.aspx

  8. Discovery Channel and TLC have a super resource for teachers. http://school.discovery.com/lessonplans/

  9. Does your taste in decorating lean towards eco-friendly, modern, sleek designs? This is a site for you. http://www.dwr.com/

  10. Looking for a travel trailer that doesn't require a huge, gas-sucking vehicle to pull? Want style and a slick look? Direct from the factory. No "middle man". http://www.casitatraveltrailers.com/happycustomers.html
