“If we were always conscious of the fact that people precious to us are frighteningly mortal, hanging not even by a thread, but by a wisp of gossamer, perhaps we would be kinder to them and more grateful for the love and friendship they give to us.”
– Dean Koontz
Been thinking a lot lately about friendship and connections, both here at home and those relationships formed through social media outlets such as blog sites, Facebook, and even Flickr. Thankful for such a wonderful network of like-minded, supportive and inspirational souls from all parts of the world.
All the more thankful when I actually get to meet an online friend or two in person. I’ve been fortunate to meet a few of these people and each time it felt like we had known each other for years.
Just recently, my husband and I met the photographer extraordinaire, Joe Giordano (Monochromia) and his lovely wife Terry in Boston for a wonderful dinner in the North End. We had a great time and are hoping to get together again this fall in NYC.
A few weeks prior to our meeting, I had an interview with Joe.. a little chat about photography mostly, with a few revealing facts about me

Next weekend, I am meeting a couple of WordPress friends for Sunday morning coffee and a walk around historic Concord, MA
Another marvelous perk to photography, the networking and connections you make along the way…the threads that bind us, so to speak.
Have you ever had the opportunity to get together with a fellow blogger or social media friend? I’d be curious to hear what your experience was like.
Lots of wishes for a happy weekend!
Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby
Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
I love getting back to our usual golden hour walks now
