…it’s deja vu, all over again, Mabel… when yeez need a friend…

…this ol’ Jurassic’s been around long enuff to believe in the truism that plenty of us can have hundreds of acquaintances, maybe even more for the ultra-gregarious among us… but few in our midst have more than a handful or two of enduring friendships … the kind of bonding unblemished by the distance of extended time or geography… the instant-plug-in-where-yeez-left-off-last time-yeez-met sort of deal… the sort yeez can count on when the rest of the world goes to hell in a hand-basket, and yeez look for sumb’dy to stand beside yeez in the metaphorical trenches with imaginary bullets whistling past yer ears… I’ve been blessed with more than my fair share of such pals… some have already moved on to the Big-School-Playground-In-The-Sky… others, happily, still flirt around on this planet… now, here’s the strange thing… maybe it’s because a modicum of common sense has crept into what’s left of my wee grey cells, that I recognise the emergence of a parallel set of buddies… it’s deja vu, all over again, Mabel… over the past few years, as a dabbler in the whirly-birly spheres of the self-publishing other-world, my SOSYAL NETWURK mates have grown apace… what began as a purely promotional, broadening-the-marketing-base-for-my-literary-masterpieces process has thrown up not just a handful or two, but dozens, if not hundreds, of new relationships which smack of solid friendship… yeez know who yeez are… coz yeez’ll have prob’ly experienced the same feelings yerselves… the added ‘no-crap’ dimension on the Web is that there’s no need for some of the stupid posturing that so-called ‘real-life’ situations produce… internet banter amongst like-minded spirits is great fun… adding support to yer fellow Lads and Lassies of Blogland in their own endeavours to reach the quill-scrapers’ Holy Grail of being ‘successful’, (whatever that daftest of WURDS really means) becomes part of a mutual reservoir of strength… rejoicing in each other’s victories, small and otherwise… but most all, sharing, sharing, sharing… sumb’dy once said to me a long, lo-o-o-o-ng time ago, ’to keep it, yeez have to give it away, and that doesn’t mean money’… so, to all of yeez fabulous scribbling pals out there… see yeez later…LUV YEEZ!… have a wee listen to this, if yeez want:

  3. Nice post. True enough on the real-life posturing. Been with you since Nov. 2012 and loved every moment.

    A beautiful sentiment beautifully said! And so true! My life is all the richer for having ‘met’ some of these loverly inhabitants of blogland… and we chat every day! I dont talk to my family every day ( other than kids or hubby of course!) Or even my closest oldest pals, but us bloggerfriends are there for each other every single day!

  5. Careful there, Handsome. I think a warm breeze just exposed your vulnerabilities! But isn’t it strange how, whether face to face or monitor to monitor, like souls attract like souls. So glad I found you … and all the others of our ilk. Makes each day more worthwhile, for sure.
