Last night we drove 1-1/2 hours to spend about an hour visiting with some friends who were passing through this area on a cross-country bike ride–riding a tandem bike that is far different from anything I’ve ever seen!
We don’t see them that often–at reed organ activities primarily. And a lot of our connections are via e-mail.
But when we got together and headed down to Golden Corral to eat, we had lots of things to talk about.
One of the things I found really interesting in visiting with them was the sense of connectedness they’ve also found on this trip…the ways in which complete strangers have become friends as they’ve helped each other out.
Wouldn’t it be great if the whole world were like that? If strangers were only friends that we hadn’t met yet? rather than potential enemies?
Maybe if enough of us live that way, we can make it come to pass!
