Just a little note...

... sounds sentimental and all... but I'm so glad to have met all of you... the amazing people I've met through blogging... so different from each other yet all so unique... you make my day special, and I learn something new and get re-acquainted with something old...every day

I have a serious problem connecting with people in 'real' life... lots of barriers that I just can't seem to cross to arrive at a natural comfortable point... all of it so forced and artificial.

But here, in this very special universe... making contact with everyone... I'm so much more in my element... away from all physical distractions... a little vulnerable, a little armored...

Enjoying these beautiful random encounters with so many facets of myself and of you....

I hope I'm included in those comments :)
And I agree. I am enjoying the long distance friendships that are developing and I value the comments and companionship of each of you fellow journeyers.

...you definitely are

Ricardo said...

Thanks for visiting. I was just online when I saw your message come though. Yes, blogs are amazing ways to meet people. Some of us are more comfortable communicating through our writing so this is the perfect place for doing that. I hope you meet some more amazing people in your travels. I'll be back to read more too.

Where did you get a chance to read my private diary???

You've posted my entries from there verbatim.... :p

I'd attribute part of my inability to connect with people to being a 'spectator.' Life passes in front of me like a movie and I'm only a watcher. Watching life roll by from my grand balcony, alone.

When I do try to get involved with someone in the real tangible world, that's when I become part of the movie, that's when I have to act.

That's when I have to go out of my natural habitat and 'behave' and 'participate' like I'm one of the characters in the movie.

That's when it starts becoming artificial--and terribly uncomfortable.

beautifully said, Random.

Jeremy Jacobs said...

what barriers exactly?

Jeff said...

It is an interesting phenomenon. As people who read my blog know, I am going through some stuff right now. It seems that the kind words from bloggers are as comforting as a hug in my "real" life.

Mark said...

The blogoshpere is truly a wonderful place! You are a joy to know.

Dan Leone said...

If you hadn't reached out to me on my blog, I would probably have not stumbled upon yours. It is such a nice feeling that there are good people like you out there.

Enjoy your journey!

Dan

Many blessings my blog friend. :o)

Dream catcher said...

HollyGL said...

I am in full agreement, Random. We are very similar with our barriers. I, too, feel connected to you and the other bloggers I communicate w/on a regular basis. It's a comforting feeling somehow.

Mrs. Schmitty said...

The walls are easier to bring down here. I know I can be more open. Thanks for dropping by my blog, I enjoy reading yours and will be back!

Random Magus said...

Thank you all so much...you guys truly brighten my day... will be AWOL for a couple of days.
Going for my dad's bypass on the 29th. Hope you all remember my dad in your prayers

Amel's Realm said...

I've just been here once but I agree COMPLETELY with the posting. :-)))))

I'm also not an outgoing person and I've always been a little awkward when meeting people in real life. That's one reason I LOVE blogging. :-)))

I completely know how you feel. I have WAY more friends online then I will ever have off. It's always been difficult for me to even approach someone and say something as simple as "hello", yet I get online and that fear subsides and suddenly I meet all of these wonderful people that I just wouldn't have the courage to otherwise. God bless the internet :)

Laurie Anne said...

I'm glad you put that sentiment out there, for I too, feel a connection with the bloggers, more so than the real world, sometimes. I am sorry about your dad's pain.
