For Chris (Enchanted Oak)


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 , which led me to by Chris at Enchanted Oak. And it came to me just how very real these relationships actually are.

Thanks for pointing this out because I usually only visit her on Fridays.

We ARE all connected and not by the superhighway of cable. This group is some of the best, biggest hearted people I've never seen...but still believe in.

I love my blog friends and would be much the poorer without them. Present company included. :-)

Excellent post and I'm going to copy and send it to my daughter - who thinks all of you are axe murderers!

Mama Zen said it best.

and you were right about the next door neighbours, being a PC games addict (well, i was, before i discovered photography and blogging)i know the characters in the game better than my neighbours, but now blogland has open up for me to share and meet new friends.

How true! I hadn't necessarily thought about it this way but I do feel I know all my bloggy friends. And I only know 2 of my neighbors, lol.
