Thank you, technology

There are a lot of people who complain about technology, I am not one of them. One of the many reasons I love it is because of the ability to communicate across the miles and be in touch in convenient, yet meaningful ways.

Take for example my friend, LBN. She and I went to ‘deis together, though she was a couple of years behind me. We have always been in touch though we never have lived in the same place. Years probably went by and we didn’t see one another yet always sort of heard what was going on in one another’s lives through mutual friends and roommates. With the advent of facebook and instant messaging we started to be in touch more. Then came twitter and blogs and the like. Now LBN and I communicate and are updated on another’s lives as we both blog and tweet regularly (and then there’s instagram… I could go on and on).

LBN and ABN welcomed the beautiful EBN into the world a bit over a year ago. EBN entered the world the same day that MY MOM died. Circle of life much? When I met EBN almost a year ago (there was once a hilarious picture of us and I can’t find it), it was clear there was an instant connection. I haven’t seen LBN and her progeny in way too long. Hopefully that will be changed soon.

So thank you facebook, twitter, gchat and the like. LBN and I appreciate it very much!


Oh NaBloPoMo, I did not have time for you on Friday or today. Nonetheless, I persist.

    i mean, clearly LOVE. technology is a great thing. i love that we have become better friends through technology. i love that you know EBN and EBN knows you because of technology. our families will be FOREVER linked – part of our joy is lessened because of your loss and at the same time, i find a bit of comfort in this odd and uncomfortable connection. technology is great but i can’t wait to see you in person. and that picture…it’s freaking priceless
