Tending the Wires

on January 12, 2013

-From the Daily Compass

Dr. King said that we are “caught in an inescapable network of mutuality,” and many of us identify with the Interdependent Web as an image of the complex web of relationships which encompasses all beings. But many of our relationships depend on the tangible web of wires which make possible our connections via phone and internet. And these wires only continue to connect us if they are tended and maintained.

What will you do today to tend to some connection that matters to you?

There was a group of teens I hung out with in high school. We were really good friends. That was way back in Virginia over 20 years ago. We lost contact when I attended the University of Texas at Austin. I have since been looking for them off and on. I have found several of them through Facebook. Today, I found one of the last two left. I found him through Google. I found out that he has a Facebook account and I asked to be his friend. Hopefully, he will remember me. I really miss those friends. I think of them often. I started this blog for many reasons. One of the main reasons is that all my friends live so far away. They are always so busy. I try to contact them but they don’t have the time. So, I now have a blog to talk to. It helps me think and sort things out. I tend to bare all on this blog.  I am not sure if anyone will read it or not. I guess that doesn’t really matter. I am not writing for anyone but me. It is cathartic, in a way. It really does help. I just wish I could write more. But, every little bit helps.
