Friendships, Love & Community

Pretty Mailbox

A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters & phone calls and small, silly presents every so often - just to save it from drying out completely. (Pam Brown)

Sometimes my friends who don't blog ask me how I meet people online. I find that it's kind of hard to understand unless you live in (or have at least visited) this neighborhood.

It doesn't cost much to move in —

An internet connection plus some time, heart & creativity will lay a decent foundation.

A willingness to share your story builds the frame.

A desire to participate in community provides a rooftop.

Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and StumbleUpon are the vehicles that help us get around town.

We bring cookies to new neighbors in the form of trackbacks and comments.

We build businesses. We attend workshops. We network. We host block parties.

There is nothing virtual about the friendships that have grown out of my time online. I've met mentors, soul sisters, heros and best friends.

I've shared gifts, letters and so much love, often with people I have never met face-to-face. When it comes to friendships and community, it doesn't matter if you are on- or offline.

If your heart is filled with joy, you are in the right place!
