Great story.Thanx for the link.

Damn don't make me bawl. I hate it when you do that!

I'm in China on business working 12 hours days (and doing some net crusing) and decide to follow the link. Suddenly I find myself trying to maintain my composure in an office of 20 people.

Michelle, thanks so much for the link, it reminds me what a treasure life, family and friends truly are.

Those of us who live in urban environments often don't have the same sort of intertwined social connections that exist in smaller communities. It's easy to feel isolated and alone from time to time. As far as I'm concerned, any entity that helps create new social networks is a positive force in one's life. The point of blogging isn't the quest to write great literature or great news articles (although those sorts of achievements can't be precluded). It's just to communicate with the rest of the world, and hopefully establish some meaningful new connections along the way.

Thanx for the link Michele.
