Let’s see, now, I’ve met, face-to-face, several people through social media. Teresa. Robin and Roger. Tara. Juan. Kathy. Kathy. Cari. Soon, I’ll meet another, Holly.
In spite of my occasional rants about how social media tends to be a vacuum that sucks the heart and soul out of people who, otherwise, might be decent, intelligent human beings, I’ve been fortunate to meet some very nice people in the ether. They’re all intelligent, creative, inquisitive people who like to think! They’re all people who appreciate and value the use of language as a tool for connection. It’s not the technology that attracts them to social media, it’s the potential to establish rapport with other people, people who share some important commonalities with them.
So there you go.
Today is the first day of pottery for the week. Then, a one-day break. Then another day of pottery.
And that, gentle people, is all I have to say for the moment. Now, I have to let my mind rest.
The best part of the internet is this confirmation that there are kind, good, thinking, creative people out there in the world. I am always grateful that we find each other.
