A line in the chorus of this song really ties in with how I've been feeling lately. Blogging to me has always been so much more than talking about how my day's been. It's about connecting with people who, though they may be thousands of miles away, are every bit the friends that those around me are.
Lately I haven't had a lot of time to visit you guys. Most would say this is something we should do in our 'spare' time, something that shouldn't intrude too much in our 'real' lives. But when you make friends like this, to me the definition of 'real' becomes blurred. Why should an on-line friend be any less important in our lives than those tangibles we can see?
I know I'm off-track when some of my
- you haven't upset me
- you haven't pissed me off
- if you had, I'd man-up and write you so we could discuss it like adults
- I haven't somehow grown tired of you
- you're on my mind as much as you ever were
- I miss you. I do.
We all impact someone's life, some more than others. I know I don't connect with everyone, and that's okay because I don't expect to. But I've formed friendships with many of you, some of you I've grown very close to. I don't expect to change your life, I'm just me doing what I can. But if I can make some sort of a difference to your day here or there it's all I could ask for.
I promise I'm trying harder to get around to all of your blogs. I also realize I haven't been responding to comments as much as I should (virtual slap on the wrist). I want to change that. I still have some old e-mails to respond to. It never ends does it?
Just know if you haven't heard from me for a while I'm still thinking about you. I said I'm gonna be here, and I'm here.
