Afterward off to a gathering where we were joined by about 30 others for an evening of getting acquainted, making connections, and typing into my iPhone the names of blogs that would, by evening's end, be added to my google reader. I saw a handful of friends that I knew in print, and I was shocked at how quickly we were talking about important things and remembering what we already knew about each other.
On my drive home I thought to myself how, almost accidentally, this blogging world has become a vital part of my creative self. My self that has things to say and things to search for. And how happy I am to have a place for that.
