You know what I discovered? I had a few (quite a few, in fact) blogs that people haven't written a single word for 8 months, 10 months, a year. What becomes of these people? I don't know. I wish I knew.
I miss the people whose lives I used to be entwined with. My good friend Lisa, a nurse like me, just up and quit
Another friend, who is also named Lisa, lives in Australia. She had much turmoil in her life. She had just became a nurse's assistant. I miss her poetry.
Then there is Lisa and Cristy. Two wonderful ladies I met through a 30 day writing challenge. I keep up with one through her blogging about clean eating. And the other I follow on Instagram. But it just isn't the same. I miss hearing about their everyday life.
I met a nice gentleman who was in the Army and he wrote such wonderful pieces from a man's point of view. Then, bam, gone. Wonder what he is up to. And that man from Greece who was moving to England. Gone!
Another was Katy! Loved her photography. Bam, gone with the rest. The blog she was on has been taken over by another. And it isn't the same person. How does blogger let that happen?
Do you find yourself making really good friends through blogging and suddenly you realize they just aren't there anymore! Life can be like that sometimes too! I am thinking of all the friends we used to have. Those who slowly left when Richard got sick. Those who tried to stick it out! And those I never hear from anymore......
