I read this blog post (about the post author’s friend surviving cancer) on my Google Reader feed. On my reader, the blog is called “misc.” and the author is “t.t.”And I thought, well, that’s really wonderful. I didn’t recognize the blog and I figured it was someone I had pulled off of the RevGal site who didn’t post very often, so I didn’t really know much about her, or have any sense of who she was. Then I saw the next post on the blog linked on that ubiquitous social networking site and I realized the author of the post was a friend In Real Life. Huh.
So I’m thinking about friends and acquaintances and old friends and new friends and physical friends and virtual friends and Friends I Miss While They Are Away (even though their virtual presence continues and has, in fact, picked up) and I’m not sure where I’m going with it, but there it is.
