Top always said I would talk to a lamppost if there was no one else nearby!
Not quite true, but close enough
The truth is
I love people
I love all people
people of every age,
I love to talk to them all
(if I am being honest some more than others but hey!!!!!)
that I am a product of all these people I talk to
I believe that every conversation I have changes me in some way
those conversations make me grow,
they make me see some things in a different light
they build my level of empathy,
they expand my sense of humour,
I take on board a little of everyone
and that makes me who I am!!!!
The blogs I follow are the ones that amuse me,
interest me, challenge me
and delight me. They are the ones that engage me in some way
and because they do, I like to build a connection
with the fascinating person who is the originator.
It is through the commenting on the blog that we do this
and over the past two years I have made some truly wonderful connections
I have met people who will be friends for life
I have met people who allow me to have a thoroughly good giggle,
a bit of a cry, a burst of anger, a sigh of delight
and I like to tell them when they give me this joy
I also like to let them know that I appreciate
the time and effort that went into writing each and every post
|I'm listening via Pinterest|
so I comment on what I have heard them say
sometimes a dumb comment because I may have misinterpreted their message
sometimes one I think is quite clever till I go back later and see it in print...oh dear!
Top passed on to his children the ability of the smart retort, the quick comeback,
the funny one-liner...me... I don't have it
but I comment regardless because I enjoy the building of the connection.
and it gives me great joy when you want to do that with me
I am so thrilled when you leave a comment and I try always to reply
do you come back and read those replies?
am I connecting with thin air?
(I always check your posts back to see if you have answered my words!)
and sometimes I want to reply to someone else's comment
sometimes I want to have a full conversation
that does not seem to be the way
which is a little disappointing
so feel free to reply to another's comment,
feel free to initiate a conversation,
feel free to just say hello!
to let me know you are there!
to the nitty gritty
Google have changed their word verification and I can't read it
so if I haven't commented lately it is not for lack of trying it just won't accept
what I am seeing, so please could they go back to letters you can understand!!!!!
Come and say hello I just want to meet you!!!!!
