The world at my fingertips


I realise I’m several years later than most, but today I’ve installed Google Earth. Now I’ve got a new laptop that will actually load it without having a nervous breakdown and refusing to play until it’s had a long rest in a dark room.

I just wanted to look up some details about the topography of the Czech Republic. That was hours ago. Since then I’ve visited New York, crossed into Canada, journeyed through the Great Lakes and over the rocky Mountains. I’ve visited several houses I used to live in and Siena (my all-time favourite place). I even had a peek at where I live now (noting that the paintwork looked a lot better when the street view was filmed).

I have done no work since lunchtime. I don’t care. I feel as if I’ve been on an adventure. Work-wise, the rest of the week isn’t shaping up too well. So many places, so little time.




About Alexa

I have just started writing again after a break of some years. I write mostly non-fiction, although I love story writing. My first Steampunk novel has been sent into the big wide world to make its fortune (or not). I hate mowing lawns, love growing flowers, and spend a fair bit of time shifting mole-hill detritus from the lawn to the flower borders. I have a degree in English Literature and Theology, and a passion for science that I wish I'd discovered when I was young enough to choose it as a career path. I have two sites on Wordpress. 'Born-again sceptic' - my personal views on the science/religion debate, and 'Writing and other stuff' an eclectic mix of things that interest me ( the title says it all).
