Musings about the internet.

I have to say that I am truly amazed by the power of the internet. I mean where else can you connect with people that have the same interests as you from all over the world. It is just so amazing.
I have met several friends online. A lot of people think that is strange. They have this fear that there are a lot of weirdo's lurking about waiting to prey on poor unsuspecting people who have nothing better to do than sit and look at message boards on the internet. This is true in part, but for the most part this is not true. There are a lot of small sites, that have a small group of people with the same interests. This thing called the internet has opened door to people, to make friends. Some who may have a hard time making friends in the first place.
I am thankful for my group of internet buddies. Some of which have become very good friends! The internet helped me when we moved to a place where I knew not one single soul, it helped me reconnect with my friends back home and it helped me branch out and make new friends in this new place I call home. I think if you go about meeting people from the internet in a safe way that it can be an amazing experience.
This last weekend for me was one of those. Where else can you get a group of 12 women together and have everyone get along? I have never laughed so much in my life I think. The projects were just amazing, and the friendships are something that I will cherish forever! I am so grateful for the friendships I have, and the internet has just made it easier to create a larger circle of friends.
HUGS! To all of my internet friends!!!
