the blogosphere is a Neverland filled with sparkling goodies, heart-shaped gadgets, inviting pictures, smiling faces, kind compliments, lovely words, scented gifts.
We get to select things we like, share them with our virtual buddies, while without hesitation we throw the spam in the disposable.
We cut and paste, pin the pretty bits we find, embed and tweet and hype and like just what feels OK.
On happier days, we show our enthusiasm in well displayed posts and smart comments; when we are feeling blue, fed up with the contingencies of everyday life, we lift our spirits by seeking refuge in this marshmallow world.
Too bad we don’t LIVE in Neverland.

The following button will be featured permanently on La vie en rose, and I humbly invite you to grab it and “spoil” your pink zones by displaying it as a sign of awareness of what goes on “outside”, today and every day: too painful to talk about, too raw and real to exist in Neverland, still there nevertheless.
