I grow deeply attached to friends, I love them like nobody's business, and those I have lost contact with over the years, I miss them every day.
Something I love about this forum is that ya'll are as much a part of my life as if I knew you in 3D. Sometimes I'll be behaving a certain way and I might think, "What would Daniel/or Vanessa/ or James/or Emproph/ or Jennifer (you get the picture) think/say/do/react? I'm learning a lot from you, and I feel like y'all are giving me guidance as I continue to find myself as an activist, but much more importantly, you're helping me be the human being I was supposed to. I dunno if you have any idea how inspiring you are, and how much I have grown with your support.

Reading this thread just makes me wish like mad that we could all meet someplace and have these conversations in 3D. Laugh at me for this one, but ya know where I keep picturing us? At an outdoor cafe in *Parma,* of all places!!!
I have no idea why I keep picturing that!
Seriously, though, I wish it were possible to meet y'all. I would love to walk up to the group and try to figure which face goes with which name.
But with our folk all spread out across the continent I can't imagine it being possible.
Some of ya are going to this march in CO Springs?? Hubby has already begun planning us a different vacay trip in early July, up around Seattle, Portland, Calgary. . .so I doubt we'd be able to get to CO after that.
But I'm not about to grudge a vacation in the cooler climes - ya don't wanna be in Phoenix in July.
