I can remember not so long ago, a friend dressing me down in a group setting about my facebook habits…The whole conversation really pissed me off and I removed her icon from my circle of good friends. Oh..it wasn’t just her lecture..I’m a lot more loyal than that..but that was the spark that burned down the forest. I know we are not all the same – I know we all reach out in different ways…there is not wrong or right..perhaps there is a good and bad..but that is not what today’s thoughts are about.
I have a love affair with the internet…I do not apologize for it; nor do I entertain any guilt…I’ve met some very special people who touch my life everyday..I met them on XANGA..these people would not be in my life if it were not for the WWW. I feel as close to these people in my life as the actual earthly bodies I can reach out and touch. They make me laugh and cry..I know what is going on in their life and what they think about it probably better than the earthly bodies. I’m very thankful for them.
Then there are the reconnects…when life happens, we lose contact with important people in our lives. Facebook has brought them back into my life…it just makes me feel happy. I could either be wondering what has happened to them or what is going on in their lives when they pop into my head…or I can click on their facebook page and know!
…and then there is the rest of the WWW that I use constantly..there is not an unanswerable question. The information available at our fingertips is infinite..even if you can’t spell it, you can find it.
I’m totally in LOVE. I feel sorry for people who don’t use the internet, people who haven’t found us on xanga or who don’t use Facebook…There is a huge void in their life…they don’t know it…but I do. What great advancement in technology will be next?
Until next time….
