Ok, here’s a new Portmanteau for you all to muse…

I’ve Googled it – it doesn’t exist (the closest Google got was sympathy) so you can consider this term coined here and now on The Unwitting Traveller!

So, what is it?

SM – Social Media +

App – Applications (as in those which decorate my smart phone screen) +

Apathy: (according to Encarta Dictionary: English (UK))

  • Lack of enthusiasm or energy [lack of interest in anything, or the absence of any wish to do anything]
  • Emotional emptiness [inability to feel normal or passionate human feelings or to respond emotionally]

SMAppathy: Social Media/SMart phone Applications Apathy – I think I’ve got a dose of this particular malaise coming on.  Am I the only one?

It’s a continuation of my musings since last week’s post “Make Time”.  It’s no good reducing the number of hours on the internet on my lap top, if I keep checking all the latest updates on the iPhone, is it!!?

So, to get past this and reach beyond, I’m returning to some good old fashioned knitting, some doodling (good gracious me!) and of course, working on my photographs in Lightroom and Photoshop, without using any presets!

Which brings me on to this week’s Photo Challenge from The Daily Post! (Check out the link to see what others are posting)

I’ve chosen a scene from Iceland’s great, expansive alluvial plains: there’s a bridge out there with a thin strip of land on the horizon, but with clouds sitting low – it’s hard to know whether there’s anything more beyond…
