There are people ALL OVER who are linked to me, linked to each other, like daisies in a chain. I started writing here 3 years ago and I had no idea what I was getting into. If I HAD known, I would have started MUCH earlier. Every time I visit you people, you make me smile. You make me laugh. Some of you make me laugh so hard I have to put my head down on the desk to control the shaking.
I'd have to go back a ways to find out when I first had the idea of asking my readers to send me a page for a handmade book, a book of friendship. Since I put it out there I have received several pages and am stacking them together in a slowly growing pile on my art desk. Every time I get one, it's a thrill. You've sent me parts of yourself in the form of photography, collage, paintings, letters, recipes and poems. It's a pile of treasure.
Today I received a lovely letter and a page from someone who has never, that I can remember, commented on my journal. He found me via Meg at Blogcabin, whom I found via Chuck. Thanks, Michael! Each blog or journal that I read and become involved with leads me to others. And each of THEM is simultaneously leading and being led. A slowly growing web of bloggy filaments swathing the globe in friendship. Or a bunch of latent, frustrated stalkers, finally finding their destiny. Whichever. :D
