A Little Me Time with You

Featured Member Post

Many years ago know I saw a graphic that I thought perfectly summed up the online world (at least the decent part).


That does seem a bit extreme and psychologically dangerous, and yet ... Maybe not all my friends live in my computer, but I have developed significant relationships with people around the world online. Moreover, as I have lived in so many places over the past several years, I can continue to have a relationship with people who are far away, via my computer. It's my magical machine that can transport me to my friends in an instant.

When I come home from work, the first thing that I want to do is visit my friends and see what they've been up to.  There's a few here and a few there. There are the ones with whom I shared an obsession with Craig Ferguson and others with whom I shared an obsession with Lord of the Rings. Both of those are in the past tense because I am no longer obsessed with either of those things, and I don't think that the friends that I met there are either.  But we have developed meaningful relationships, and it's fun to catch up.

I check in with the people in DC via Facebook. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't touch it with a 10 ft pole. But I do it for them. It really makes me feel that I have a continued connection with Wesley Theological Seminary because they tell me (mostly via their updates and pictures) about what's going on.

And then there's the blogging world. With a quick scan on my sidebar, I can see if people have been active and if I can see what's going on in their world.

By the time I put in my two cents, it's time for bed. But then I want to read my book ... and I wonder why I don't get enough sleep.

But honestly, I just want a little me time ... with You! ;)
