Sooooo, inspired by my friends who blog when they visit our shared favorite place, I decided to start my own little blog. Still figuring it all out -.hopefully said friends (and all my other peeps) will stop by to say helloooo, and share my upcoming trip to you know where with me.
I was thinking about said friends – how I’ve met so many of my friends online (um..including my husband 🙂 ) Technology has invaded so much of our lives -.we’re tied to our email and addicted to facebook (guilty) and sometimes it overwhelms. Sometimes I KNOW I should step away from the keyboard before it swallows me up.
But the internet has also opened up my world in so many wonderful ways. I have friends who live all over the US and in Canada. Australia. New Zealand. France. Denmark. Germany. Israel, Egypt – I’m sure I’m leaving some of them out. By putting myself out in the (online) world through forums and fan sites, I’ve met so many interesting wonderful people – many of whom I have had the privilege of meeting in person. People who love Paris as much as I do. Who love food and wine as much as I do. Who love my favorite band as much as I do (hell, I’ve even met members of said band.) Who care about social justice and progressive politics as much as I do. All through this little machine. Damn. Of course the interweb also allows me to stay close to my family and friends who I’ve known since the pre-wired days, when we had to write notes on scraps of paper. Amazing how far we have come,
Anyway, all that rambling to say that I feel blessed to have all of my friends and family in my life, and I hope you will come along with me on my journeys. On y va !
