Today I was wandering around facebook for too long. I continually find myself astonished at how seamlessly all of my worlds have been connected. On facebook, I have friends from as early as first grade. I have friends from my many jobs, from my time at UConn. I have friends from 3 of the 4 churches I’ve attended. Some are people that I’ve met through blogging and tweeting. I have friends from Malaysia, South Africa, and many states throughout the US.
The world is getting smaller and smaller. And I like it. I love that God has chosen this time for me to inhabit. I marvel at technology that allows me to converse with people from all over the world. Everytime I board an airplane, I find myself excited when I take off and amazed when I land, a few minutes or hours later, a few hundred or thousand miles away from where I started.
I know that life was easier when there was less interconnectedness. I didn’t know what I was missing a few months back when I had a cell phone that only dialed and texted. I’m also old enough to remember *gasp* life before cell phones. Heck…I remember hiding under my covers in my bedroom, talking to my boyfriend on a landline on a phone that was connected to the wall.
So, all of my lives are crashing together. This will be even more true in the next couple of weeks. For more details on that, tune in next week. I have stories to tell you 🙂
