Most blogging encounters occur out in cyberspace. The meetings of the minds — and photographs and texts — take place in the two dimensions of Flatland. But every once in a while, kind of like a pop-up, an actual meeting materializes in three dimensions, in real reality, not the virtual one.
Yesterday, Random Acts of Writing and Touch2Touch/A View from the Woods materialized just that way. The three-dimensional actual Jen rang the doorbell of the actual Judith for a face-to-face meeting and visit.
There were big broad smiles all around, there was the solid breadth of two human beings occupying space,and an odd sensation of having already known this person whom we were each meeting for the first time, because we already knew them so well from their respective blogs.
40 Green Street Lunch of the truly Parisian baguettes and croissants was unexpectedly on vacation, so we subbed with breakfast sandwiches and scones at Bread Euphoria. Then we went — of course! — to Look Park, to see the actual little train in action coming round the real life little bend.
Conversation bubbled like champagne, and the summer afternoon flew by like the puffy white clouds overhead in the clear blue sky. Real life Hub got in on the encounter as well.
It’s nice to know, isn’t it, that for all the wonders of the virtual world, real people in real life still top them all!
