I used to be bothered that my friends are not from my Real Life. I used to think there was something wrong with me. I used to feel that something was missing.

But this day was a tipping point. Since then, I have felt the Importance Scale tip from real life to imaginary.

And some days I am just overwhelmed by how happy I am.
How much I love you all.
Today is one such day.

Tomorrow night we have an FRG meeting. I don't know anyone in my FRG. I don't even know where my husband's company is located; I had to ask him via chat how to get there.

My real life is the illusion, and you are my world.

I live in a gulch in my mind and I am surrounded by the most wonderful people.

I don't think it's possible for anyone to feel more blessed than I do right now.

1 I know what you mean, and am very grateful for all my blog friends, but it sure is nice to sit and chat face to face sometimes.

2 I, too, know what you mean. It is nice to sit face to face and it's even better when it's face to face with an e-pal or bloggy buddy. Blessings are bestowed us from many places and my bloggy buddies are no less than a blessing. You all get me in ways that real-life people can't even begin to think about. Happy Thursday!

3 I used to think there was something wrong with me. There was never anything wrong with you. Sometimes you align with those nearby; sometimes you don't. Physical proximity has nothing to do with common ground. When your husband returns, the scale will tip the other way again. Real life will become capital-R Real. But we won't become illusions. We will remain real. And we will always be here for you.

4 OK by the time we are like 80, they will have those star trekky teleporter thingys. Then you can teach me to knit... Finding friends that truly fit your heart that is HUGE, and you are part of that for me. I feel so sorry for people who have friends like "the neighbor, I do not really like", or the lady from work, that someone is nice to at work, and than goes home to talk about the wierd person.... that is an empty place. If you think about what the train did for America...I think the internet is to friendship to me...

5 I am pleased to be your friend, however distant that I be.

6 See, if you were in my real life I'd be wondering if this were directed toward me and what your motive for saying it is. BUT, because I know that our friendship is genuine, I know this is at least partly aimed in my direction & that you know I feel the same. Now, if I'm delusional and you were talking about everyone BUT me, don't post it...and I'll never know. LOL
