Yes... I admit it. I kiss the digital ground they walk on (LOL)

Do you know what the best part of being a Rainer is? The community. I am on a lot of platforms but this is the only one I call my digital home. The people living in my computer that I love are all in my virtual house Club Chaos. I freak out when I can't reach out and touch them when ever I want. Social media is about being social. If you are going to make friends then you should really be a friend to the ones you make and not waste or squander your relationships. The people living in my computer matter to me. Yes... I admit it. I kiss the digital ground they walk on (LOL).

I have a lot of acquaintances but very few true friends. I love this place because ActiveRain has introduced me to some of the best loves of my life...

Seriously....

You have no idea just how much fun we do have with each other in the background.

So many road trips, so little blogs about them (LOL).

C,

Ohhh I so agree- I too kiss the digital groud we all play on!  It's my first day back - or so it feels like it as I've been so swamped.  I missed everybody and all the fun.  What an amazing group of people!

Carolyn...totally appreciate the sentiment.  A decade ago, I would not have had any understanding or your title. :)  People matter...in person and in virtual space.

Patricia, Margaret is a hoot (LOL). :-)

Lola, I can't imagine you guys not being in my life. I look for you all daily while popping in and out of cyberspace. It's nice to stay connected with family and friends and the beautiful thing about blogging is you can share your thoughts with everyone at the same time. The whole gang can get in on the conversation or lurk quietly on the sidelines. :-)

Anna, an amazing group of people indeed. :-)

Richard, I love visiting Maryland and look forward to my next trip with the wee people. Stephen has been demanding chocolate cars and houses every single week end (LOL). My kids are hooked on road trips.

Kathy, it was the best thing I ever did on-line too. :-)

Lori, I was not myself when I couldn't log in. Talk about angst and withdrawal issues (LOL). My cell phone habits were off the hook for days. :-)

Carra, very, very true. :-)

Donne, absolutely. I love my phone conversations as well. Melody Botting and I are on so much my hubby started telling us to get a room (LOL). We'd talk into the wee hours sometimes. Chicka is mad cool. I adore her. :-)

LOL @ Jason. I know what you mean. It is definitely a wonderful enhancement and I always look forward to my virtual peeps crossing over into brick and mortar status. :-)

LOL @ Susan. That was a very cool movie. ;-)

Marilyn, thank you. Enjoy your day as well. :-)

LMAO @ Candice. It's an ancient Chinese secret... :-D

Big Mike, I know what you mean and Margaret's suggestion may turn into a fun project. Will keep you guys posted. :-)

Margaret, working on a very silly illustration for it (LOL). ;-)

Oh Missy, I can so relate to that on so many levels... I set aside times to read my fave writers. I don't always comment but am always happy to stop by for a virtual visit. It really makes my day. :-)

Gerry, I missed them just like you did. It was frustrating not knowing if everyone was okay, what the latest bit of fun or madness was and who was updating the continuing saga of life versus work. :-)

Thank you, Russell. The level of friendships are just amazing. I absolutely love this place. :-)

CTS,

I know EXACTLY what you mean after just a year in the 'Rain. The community and friendships mean more than the business leads!

I really think that SM is the best way to meet and get friends that has ever happened.  sometimes it even works out that we can meet face to face.
