Dance of the Butterflies


Did you think I might be able to play along with the STV weekly challenge? Cause I was sure wondering that myself. You see, Mr. Migraine has come back and brought some old friends, tonsillitis, sore throat, aching teeth and eyeball. But color me Super Woman, hunched over and with a cane. I can STILL COLOR!!! Take THAT Mr. Migraine.

Each day is precious. Today I was able to be the listening ear to three friends online as they cope with serious and sometimes tragic challenges. It feels good to let them pour their hearts out, just quietly listening. And afterward, I felt like perhaps I accomplished something special just by being here, on my electronic devices, willing to listen. Remember when we would go to each other's homes or meet for coffee and just talk? Times have changed. Now we have electronic devices. Seldom do I get a phone call, which is great for me because calls where me out faster than going to the mailbox. But a long time ago, getting together as friends was far more intimate and rewarding that this internet thing.
