I can’t seem to come up with the words yet, they are jumbling around in my head, swirling and twirling and fighting for space; fighting for the chance to come out in a cacophony of squeals and sighs and laughter and love and tears and joy.
My amazing heart sister Mishi took this picture and I think it sums it up:
Oh my friends, my new friends, my old friends.. the ones whom my heart knew at first glance.
In speaking with my dad about the relationships and the power of what we share, he made an observation. This internet, this blogging, this sharing that we do in our unparalleled community, it has changed the path of generations.
My mom has these friends, she’s known them her whole life, they can be separated by miles and years and the moment they’re in the room together… they pick up a conversation that never ended, as if years, miles and lives had never changed, passed or altered.
That is what I experience with those friends who know my heart, who read my words and I theirs.
We have changed the landscape because although our physical selves are separated by hundreds if not thousands of miles, our hearts are but a beat apart. Our words and pictures sharing and bypassing all preconceived rituals and notions.
When we arrive at that moment when we spot each other and all breath, all time stops; it is at that moment that our hearts sigh “yes”, our eyes fill with tears and our voices and joy reach the heavens.
I know you.
