web of life

Unfortunately Alexi had to work this past weekend. The boys and I attended parties Saturday and Sunday and I had conversations with many people whom I didn't already know. I found myself dwelling on the ways connections are made, random and not so random. Saturday, I encountered someone who is connected to my friend the host because his late wife was a patient of that friend. Sunday, someone I talked with knew the host because they had once had a mutual friend. They've both lost contact with the other person, but remained friends with each other. I became friends with the host of Sunday's party via Flickr; the internet makes the world a smaller place.

What a web of life we weave all around us.

the internet makes the world so small. i would not have kept in touch with so many people if i hadn't had a facebook or blog!

I love striking up conversations with strangers. The knitting is a good invitation for many people to speak to you...and you never know who you are going to find!

It sure does.

Yes, the internet makes the world a smaller place, and yet I still feel pretty isolated. Ironically, traveling to Portugal and actually meeting two bloggers made for me this whole virtual connection concept more real.
