So, this ability to type something, press a button and send my words into the ether is something of a novelty in human history. While we are so used to this marvel, we forget that it wasn't the way our ancestors communicated.
This is a post about how this instantaneous communication connects people. In the previous post, you can see that I won a couple of porcelain bowls from a potter in Portugal. After I wrote that, I took some time to scroll through the blogs I routinely read looking for new posts. Michele Made Me had a new post. Oh heavenly days! It's about a comment I posted to a previous entry. The post for today has me laughing and looking at the weather forecast. Will I be able to go puddle stomping this weekend? It does not look likely but it does appear the weather will be perfect for breakfasts out on the deck. This is good too.
Now, Michele is Canadian. I would never have "met" her were it not for this Internet. Our paths probably will never physically cross, but I feel connected via a simple blog post.
Here's to the friends I've made via pixels and 1's and 0's. If our physical paths never cross know that you have enlightened me, helped me through tough times and made me laugh.
