The Neighborhood Post



Just today (or was it yesterday--I don't know the time difference between the States and Australia), Tracy gave me this lovely award. I'm very pleased and touched. There are rules involved--I'm supposed to pass the award on; the only problem being almost everyone I would pass it on to already has it!--which I will post below.

But first, I want to ponder. I'm so intrigued by this online neighborhood I find myself in. I haven't quite figured out what it all means yet, but it does seem meaningful to me. There appears to be a battalion of women--domestic types, homemaker types, crafty types--who get up in the morning, get the kids off to school or settled in with some sort of project, then grab their cup of coffee and go visiting.

At least that's what I do, and I know a lot of people reading this do it too. I drink my coffee and check in with my online friends. How are Kate's kids doing in their new school down in Adelaide? What sort of art has Victoria made this week? Will Heather be knitting or ruminating today (she does both so beautifully)? Whatever happened with the tree that fell down in Tracy's yard? Did the neighbors pay to have it removed? I need to know!

The crazy thing is, I feel like I know these women. Do I? Not the way I know Amy, Danielle and Kathryn, no. But in some way, some important way, I feel the answer is yes. You can know someone by what they have to say about their lives and the way they say it, and you can care about them. Perhaps you can't know them as fully as the people who are physically present in your life, but you can feel connected to them in a way that feels real to me.

I guess I don't have any great insights about my online neighborhood, other than I'm glad to be here, and that I feel like the people whose blogs I visit are friends--and overwhelmingly Australian, an added treat! So thanks for coming by to visit. You're always welcome here.

Oh: the rules:

- Only 5 people are allowed to receive this award.
- 4 of them followers of your blog.
- One has to be new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
- You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

If you're reading this, consider yourself awarded. Mazel Tov!
