There are a couple people

I wait for everyday. I wait for their hearts, their thoughts, their concerns to appear before me on this blank screen. I hate the computer in many ways. It is a time suck that often dumbs down media to be processed through methods of immediate gratification. But there are a couple of people who I wait for.

My relationships with these people have been changed profoundly through the computer. We have been woven together in a way that I value beyond phone calls, text messages, and even time spent together. I think it is because I always feel connected to them in some fashion. They are my support in a place where at times I am scared of what others think. A place that I venture into alone. And no longer I am alone. They are behind all my thoughts and dreams in an inexplicable way. They are just there because they have been there all along. And I also am there for them.

I wait for these people every day. They come to me and share themselves as friends, as they are, imperfectly, like me. They are some of the most valued friendships I have ever encountered. We are woven together in this tapestry of life. They are brilliant colors in my tapestry, threading through many sections and making mine more beautiful then ever.

You know who you are, my beautiful, vibrant friends that I wait for everyday.

We have become something beautiful.

Thank you.
