Thank you for writing this. It is so true that this is a whole new way to make friends. Kind of exciting really to know people by their thoughts-- and not by geography and biology. I like it.

Amen, sister.

Amen to that, bean!!

I, on the other hand, HAVE met Pam and the legendary BB and Bunny in the very Roger Waters flesh so I have no idea what's she's going on about.
The phenomenon described here is hardly "new." In the 19th century, during the heyday of the serialized novel, people waited breathlessly by the docks of New York for information on the fate of Little Dorritt (of the eponymous Dickens novel) and when informed of her death, burst into tears. It was this cult of long-distance sentimentality which caused Wilde to comment "one must have a heart of stone to read the death of Dorritt and not burst into laughter."

Tell it, sistah! Right on, baby! I feel like I'm at a revival meeting. Seriously, though, I had no expectations when I started a blog that I would 'get to know' other bloggers. It's amazing. Strange, but amazing....

This is so true. And when some blogger-friends seemingly fall off the face of the earth, I'm left bereft!
