I took this photo today because I’m going to be using the thread in a project. (See why I need the project planner, seems like I am always starting projects but never finishing them.) Then as I scanned, cropped, and got ready to upload it to Flickr I started to think about how symbolic the knotted thread is to me.
We are in the Holiday season and life is chaotic. Everyone has a place to go or something which needs to be completed. The sun sets much earlier for most of us, the weather is cooler naturally driving people to stay indoors more, myself included. Honestly, It’s the lack of talking with people with makes me sad this time of year, not the lack of sunlight. It’s the wish to have conversations and catch up on what other people are doing that I miss.
I’m thankful for social networks, though still miss sitting by the pool chatting with who ever is around, because they have allowed me to keep in contact with people I haven’t seen since high school, also to “meet” people from all over the world. Following the whereabouts and what abouts of total strangers seems totally unnecessary, and many people say it’s utterly ridiculous, yet my life would be completely different if I hadn’t “met” these people. Granted, I have only really met or spoken to a handful of these friends in real life, but we are all still tangled in the same web. I consider those I follow and follow me back friends because I do share things I don’t always share with people with I meet them face to face. It’s not that I wouldn’t share what I post on FB or twitter with real life people, they just may look at me like I’m weird. 😉 Thank you to those who have taken the time to leave messages, follow my twitter, FB, blog, and/or Flickr stream. You are all wonderful and people whom I hope to get to know more and possible meet one day.
