I do want you to continue reading this blog; I know that means I have to mope less and celebrate more. Starting tomorrow. I’m kidding! Kind of.
For the moment, can we focus on one of the deeper issues in life? Would you be willing to delve with me into that which is greater than each of us individually, reminds us that we are ultimately alone whilst being inexplicably connected, and gives us the strength to stop hitting snooze on the alarm clock each day? Yes, of course I am talking about Facebook.
London could be the coolest thing since three hot meals a day, but Facebook keeps reminding me that you posted a picture of your beautiful baby (or dog, or vacation spot, or funniest church sign ever. “Get ‘er done, fer God!” wins, btw). It also makes me feel connected to you and this being so very far away thing is more bearable… Thank goodness I know the status of your Domino’s Pizza order, due to their amazing (US) Pizza Tracker – made to be shared on Facebook. (Oh, Brittany and Nick, I hope it was everything you hoped for!)
What I am getting at is that it is quite conflicting to know that I am such a small piece of the puzzle that life does go on when I am removed, but it’s so freeing at the very same time. (I snuck in that deep bit when you least expected it, huh?) What I’d really like to know is that I’ve left something meaningful behind every time I have moved on or moved away from one thing to another; but it’s so gratifying to know that you are moving forward with celebrations, growth, love, learning, and living in general – without me.
Keep posting those videos and silly updates. I love it.
