A Special Thank You To All My Blogging Buddies

Living in a large city, most of our interactions have become ritualized.  I did an experiment suggested by one of my professors.  Over a few weeks I alternated my response to “hi, how are you?”  With some people, I said “fine” and with others I said, “I just had the worst weekend ever”.  Both sets of people responded exactly the same way, they said the equivalent of, “oh good” and walked on.  So it was a pleasurable surprise to find that all of my blogging buddies, actually listened to what I had said and had positive wishes and suggestions for a quick recovery.  I haven’t experienced such a sense of community since leaving my small central New York town.  Thanks to all of you for welcoming me to into this community.  If you ever need a friend or are in need or a fellow blogger, I highly recommend everyone on my circle of friends.

I found a touching performance that shows the benefits of love and community.

    Hey Megan, welcome back to blogland. As Angela said, we all hope you are feeling much better. You are right about our Wana group’s incredible sense of community. I think the words of Carol King’s “You’ve Got A Friend” might say it best! Stay well and write on!

      I feel the same way every day I read their blogs, or posts on Twitter and when they comment on my blog.

      I seriously don’t know if I could’ve done this blogging thing without our Wana group. Best bunch of people ever.
