spreadin' the love
Robyn has made this Bloggin' Lovefest Day. She feels like a lot of bloggers have been on the rag lately and I think she's right. It was her idea that we should all take a few moments today and post a little love note to a favorite blogger.
We all know love is a word with a wide variety of meanings and connotations. So there were plenty of people I could have posted a love note to today. But they all know I love them, they all know I appreciate them; I have personal relationships with many bloggers and the love notes get passed back and forth all the time.
So I chose instead to make two love notes.
The first is to three guys who I once conversed with often. Three guys who held me together when I was falling apart; three guys who sometimes seem like the same person and yet have such different ways of showing their love and affection and friendship. Jonno, Aaron and James, this is my love note to you. I miss you like hell.
I've lost touch with them. I don't know what happened, I guess in the long trek through my ever changing moods we sort of drifted apart. I miss them. I miss their strength and their humor and the way every email from them was like a a giant hug. The exude warmth and inner grace; they are selfless and kind to a fault.
The other love note is to the liberal Jack of People's Republic of Seabrook. Not only is Jack a great guy with a fantastic sense of humor, wonderful writing skills and the brains to go with them, but he is living proof that people can be on opposite sides of the spectrum politically and still respect each other's views and be friends. Jack knows how to make his point using humor and not using insults, and gets mad props from me for that, and many other things.
Yea, I said mad props. Hanging out with my daughter too much I guess.
Anyhow, those are my blogger love notes and I suggest you do the same cause it makes you feel all warm and squishy inside.
Or maybe that's just this virus I have.
