On Thursday May 1, Barbara K. Baker proposes we revive some real world connecting. Get out and chat with a neighbor.
Maybe even deliver a little May Day basket. Do you remember those little baskets of flowers you would leave on a neighbor’s door? Just exactly the kind of thing that used to be a hallmark of small towns, now nearly gone.
Even as we build stronger connections in the online world, we are losing connections in our own physical community. Share some social love with your real world neighbors.
Care to help promote? Twitter it. Change your Facebook or BrightKite status. Blog it. Utterz it. Take a picture and share it in Barbara’s May Day Flickr group.
Remember: it’s all about visiting with a neighbor. You’re from a small town. You can do that.
