I know that I’ve written about this before. But I just can’t get over the connection I have with some of you. When I started blogging, I was pretty much doing it for me. A place to store my rambilings and perhaps share some of it with my close friends. But then… Oh and then… something magical happened.
You guys did!
Thank you for happening to me!
I used to pick up my pen to write
when I was there, at my desk alone.
I would write and then re-read
and my feedback was my own.
But somehow through the scheme of things
I opened another door
and all at once you guys came in
and I was not alone there anymore!
Somehow we’ve formed a village,
a neighborhood of those who understand.
Some of you are not too far away,
and some are in other lands.
But somehow through our passion,
through our need to feel heard;
we all have connected
through our love of the written word!
This was my reply to the first comment that came in…
(It fit perfectly for the way that I feel about many of you… I thought I’d cut and paste it and add it in the actual post so you understand just how important you have all become to me and how much I appreciate you!)
I am so glad to have met you as well! YOU were one of the ones that inspired this. Some come and go and then come back into each of our lives. No guilt trips or expectations. Just glad to see ya when you’re here and miss you when your not. But thrilled to reconnect with those who haven’t been around a while and excited to make new friends here each day, who I might find that connection with… and when it happens… it is like magic!
I don’t need to ask anyone to read my blog or what they think… I have you all who do that for me. I loved one of the pictures here with the lights all on at night. I can just see us all inside one of those lit windows blogging away or writing our words. Regardless of where we are, in what town, in what country…. our hearts are strung together with our understanding of how important our words are!
