It's always amazed me how close we can get to people in this blogly community that we've never even met in the three-dimensional world. If the boundaires in the so-called real world could be as easily erased as those in this space, world peace would be in our grasp. I have friends all over the world because of this forum. Some of these people I know better than I do my next door neighbors. I have laughed, cried, celebrated and mourned with them. I've shared their triumphs and their tragedies, supported and been supported, and done all those hundred thousand stupid little things that make friendships. And yet, there are those who would have us believe that because we have not breathed air from the same room our friendship isn't "real".
But today I happened by Totalfeckingeejit's blog and saw this post, which led me to this one by Chris at Enchanted Oak. And it came to me just how very real these relationships actually are.
