One can acquire everything in solitude except character.I had a nice chat with Brigid last evening, about dogs and what they mean to us, and family, and cabbages and Kings. Over the last few years she's become one of my favorite people in the world, and we've never even met. The Blogosphere has brought us together, and enriched my life.
And quite frankly, it's the same for you. There's quite a crowd that gathers here every now and then, and all of you enrich my life through your comments, and linkatude, and general awesomeness.
So thank you, Gentle Reader, for coming here and enriching my life. I don't think I've said that in a while, but it means quite a lot to me.
And it's all through the magic of the Internet. It looks like it's fixin' to get unseasonably cold here for a few days, so Al Gore must be in town. If I see him, I shall thank him for his most excellent Information Superhighway, without which I would never have met Barkley and Brigid, or Blogfather JayG, or you. It breaks down the miles that make our solitude, and is a wonder for which I am quite grateful.
Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence.
