I have some pictures I would like to post, but as I am not at home I first need to buy some kind of connection I am told, to get them from my camera and onto my iPad.
In the absence of pics, I am thinking about that word connection anyway and how important it is to humans. The desire to connect and be a part of something and the need to do so too.
That is what we are all doing here after all. We are connecting. We are connecting with words in many guises, in photographs that are wonderfully diverse and in art that is inspiring. ( I mention these 3 forms of connection in particular as they inspire me and are where I am most seeking connectedness on wordpress)
Each time we log in we are reconnecting with all of those things and over time a sense of what that connected-ness means to us grows. For me exploration is very much a part of my wordpress journey too. I am exploring what it is I enjoy reading and looking at and why that is. I am also discovering what thread pulls me towards the things I write and share and why that is.
It is fun. It is stimulating. It is enjoyable. It is connecting in a way that nourishes me on a daily basis.
This post was prompted by another that I read this morning
The post about friendship and what it means got me thinking about my friendships and their value in my life and instantly I realised that in the space of a few days I had reconnected with many friends that I had not seen in some time.
I know they are important because when I see them again, whether the space since I last saw them is weeks months or years: it is like meeting an old friend and making a new one. Now that is special and warming and quite simply wonderful.
I am reminded how many special people I am fortunate enough to have in my life. whether I see them regularly or not is not what is important in the long run: it is that they are in my life and my heart and that when we are able to reconnect we do and the energy charge that it gives me is priceless.
What I now realise too is that by enjoying every minute or hour we do have to share: I am living in the moment when I do so. I know this because I love being in that space and spending that time.
Connection, reconnection, friendships and living in the moment- I have come full circle in my understanding of the value of each and their glorious connectedness.
