So many people live like this these days, in a state of recording and documenting rather than experiencing (says me, with my blog and my facebook et cetera). After a particularly ill-fated and misguided excursion to the yoof full Fashion Keyboard about two years ago, I coined the term `digital tourettes' to refer to the youngsters seeming lack of control over their perpetually flashing digicams.
But as I have just this week stepped out onto the edge of the slippery Twitter slope, it did amuse me to imagine tweeting from the middle of the forest.
`Just saw most amazing tree ever #amazingtreefernsoftheworld.'
`This mushroom has a hole in the top! So do the others. I wonder what that's about.'
`Margaret's poncho is so yellow. So very yellow.'
