I am gratified in being alive when the interwebz came into being. This amazing technology introduced me to others around the world I'd never have met in real life.
Subsequently, I met some and the F2F friendships always confirmed the virtual connection. When I had my small B&B around the bay, several came to visit me and it was joyful meeting them.
When I brought my play to Ireland, others showed up from great distances with overnight stays in the town.
When I mentioned I'd like some simple yoga practise for my continuing mobility/physical issues, an email fell into my box with great diagrams.
I've received cards and bookmarks and tea towels and scarves and knitting patterns and letters and books and even old fashioned hairpins which touch my heart.
I've sent out wee bits and pieces as well.
I grieve when bloggers die. And miss their writing. The loss is real.
I feel validated in all the complexities of my life when I post from the heart here. It is a rarity to be condemned and belittled (though it does happen). Those who attack, I suspect, haven't looked inside their own hearts and thrown the windows open to alleviate the darkness within.
So a big thank you to you all out there.
Today and every day.
