Hidden in the stream of twitter are hashtags on which people connect, learn, share, and collaborate in online neighborhoods.
One such twitter neighborhood is #CLmooc, which began here and here. It’s a Connected Learning Massive Open Online Collaboration. It no longer exists, except in the imaginations and connected collaborations of participants who refuse to let it dissipate into the ether. Each month a new activity spawns, and people involved [you’re invited] also send postcards— by snail mail.
And energy it is. Energy of giving and receiving. Energy that keeps flowing, day by day, month to month. Because we don’t hide the rules: Break the rules. If we suggest a doodle about lights

One last thing for December — in this busy season filled with family, conversation, and emotions, bring a little joy into your life with a little doodle activity on Gratitude. I created this for my family based on another project in my life [Thanks to Diane Bleck of the Doodle Institute]. Sometimes in this season of joy, we are also overcome with the sadness of those no longer with us. In those times of the blues, a helpful strategy for me is to focus on that for which I’m grateful. How about creating a few Gratitude Blossoms because we have much to be thankful for. And to those people you are thankful to, be sure to tell them. Here’s how to create a Gratitude Blossom to hang up around your desk, work area, or refrigerator:
As John Lennon reminded us in his music: “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” Find the hidden joys in your life and hold on to them !
And consider visiting the neighborhood via the CLmooc blog and add a bit of energy and joy to the world yourself!
And Thank you to CLmooc — my friends around the world! You are joy to celebrate!
