I never really realized how helpful strangers are until I started my blog. The reasons people write blogs are as different as night and day. Some like myself do it cause it can be carthartic, while others are pure storytellers and like entertain and spread their literary wings. I was and am very sad to see that one of my favorite blogs FOODHERE.WORDPRESS.COM is going to be no more. For me its alot like when Calvin and Hobbes was discontinued. One of the reasons I picked up the paper everyday was to see what the little guy and his tiger friend were up too. I know for me, I will miss the stories of Ram’s Incarceration and will have to wonder what happened to him at Gravel Bay. It’s funny I am curious about what motivated this individual to start this blog and what kind of satisfaction it gave him to entertain people if only for a few minutes a day. The few minutes I take during the day to read all the blogs on my list, do wonders for my spirit and more often then not pick me up from any funk I may be in. I love the fact that strangers share their travels and experiences with me, if only in word and sometimes picture format. For those that know me, writing and reading blogs helped me through a difficult time in my life. Its seems that often the only thing sometimes that keeps you out of dark air and darkness are the kind words of strangers. Ram will be missed, take care pal…..just a quick thought.
