Ethics of strangers

Our very lives depend on the ethics of strangers, and most of us are always strangers to other people. --Bill Moyers 

This was the thought for the day when I opened my mailbox 5 minutes ago. 
What a coincidence that it should arrive for me today when I had just committed a blogging faux pas.

I had forgotten to ask a fellow blogger's approval before I used her photo in my last blogpost.
 I quickly sent an email to ask her permission and I was so happy that within a couple of hours Solveig had written back saying she was happy to be included.  What relief - I would have been so sad to remove her gorgeous label bag.

Now I am wondering how many strangers are reading this post of mine ...
and how much I would like to connect with everyone who drops by here. 

Thanks so much for being here at this moment 
and hope our paths will cross -
 if you drop me a comment,
 then we will connect more easily :)

But just being here is great too. 
Thanks for joining me on this journey.
