It’s interesting how this medium can effect your day to day mood. If ten years ago someone had told me that I would be making close friends via a screen I would have wondered what planet they just flew in from. Yesterday I was very jittery as a close internet friend, Willa lives in Florida. For the past 5 years women from the crazy quilting online discussion groups swap bags of material, lace, beads and supplies. I have explained how the swap works before but needless to say there is a lot of email between Willa and myself and we have become good friends over that period of time. To my delight the email this morning delivered a brief message that she was OK, her yard is a mess and she has no power but all is fine. I am not sure why I was was so strung out about it, perhaps it is an after effect of living in one of the suburbs effected by the fires that hit Canberra last year. After seeing one type of natural disaster I guess I am only too aware of the force of nature. Willa is a gregarious personality on the discussion lists and involved with this worthwhile cause. I am sure many others will be pleased to hear that all is OK, hence such a personal post.
