"if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all." words to live by and words I should have heeded, this afternoon, before I chose to critique someone’s hard work with an offhanded tweet. these days it seems that the other half of "if you don’t have anything nice to say…" is "go online." yes, it is nice to have a forum to share our feelings and to reach someone in another hemisphere; to be able to find that kindred spirit thousands of miles away- but it is also something that should be used to bring light, not to cast shadows. I know better. One of the people involved in the project replied to my tweet and it made me ashamed of myself. While I know I am not expected to share the same likes/dislikes as everyone else- I know that I know better than to behave as I did this morning. so that’s that. i deleted the tweet and from now on it’s all rainbows and candy canes from me…..
