I had never met either of them before, but chances are, if you read someone’s blog, you probably know more about them than people who really know them know about them — it’s just that you’ve never actually met them. Diagram that sentence, I dare you.
Anyway, we had a delightful time sharing stories and chatting about all things blogging and everything else. We discovered that we are all three artists and photographers, share a similar world view and we all three have children about the same age.
I also thought it was interesting that if you round up a smidge, we are all just about 10 years apart — 30, 40 and 50 — interesting but insignificant. That’s what I love about the internet — it neutralizes the usual barriers like age, race, region, religion, economics, education and all the other silly ways in which we divide ourselves.
I’ve done a number of blogger meet-ups in my four years of blogging and I always come away feeling like I’ve found some long lost members of my tribe, that I’ve found people who understand why I do what I do. Some of those gals whom I’ve met through blogging, and you know who you are — they are some of my best buds. I know I can count on them.
I think that is just an amazingly cool thing, to connect with awesome people whose path you would never cross in real life.

I was glad when I uploaded the pictures and discovered they were actually blurry and it wasn’t just that one itty bitty glass of wine I had with dinner.
This is what photographers do when they go to dinner.
Aren’t they cute? Go read their blogs.
