A World Apart Finds a World Together

No distance of place nor lapse of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each others worth.”
Robert Southey, English Poet 1774-1843

When we, (JB and I) conceived the idea of a joint blog a world apart I figured it was a pretty unique idea, inspired of course by Murder is Everywhere. Quite naive because of course everyone in the WordPress world is that far apart from someone else somewhere. So it follows our uniqueness is not in distance but in ourselves.

What has happened is that we have reestablished old connections and are making new ones. I have come to believe that we find what we need when we need it. So given a long and convoluted thought-path in predawn hours I found myself reading and seeing exactly what I needed at that moment.

Let me introduce you to Stuart Danker, assuming you have not already met. so much of what he said struck home, I even made notes, you know so I could give you some brilliant quotes. Alas, my early morning jottings are not as clear as my mind and I can make no sense of the scribbles. I can only suggest you pay him a visit.

I am off to begin my November 27th, Saturday in chilly -3C southwestern Ontario, believing optimistically that spring is just around the corner!

Have a lovely day wherever you are! Chris

One is about 43 degrees latitude N. and longitude 80 W, The other almost equidistant south latitude and longitude 174 E. Two women, two minds, different personalities and experiences, choosing a life of meaning, continual growth and learning, at the same time negating ageist opinions of exactly what ‘an old lady’ should be.
