I Love Facebook! No, Really!

This is a slight departure from my normal photo blog - i.e. no photo taken by me. However, it's my blog so I guess I can do whatever I like, right?

Facebook is a blessing and a curse. Curse, because it's a huge non-productive time-sucking preoccupation, if you let it be. On the other hand, it makes possible something that would have been nearly impossible not so long ago - something of enormous value. It makes it possible to connect with people who might otherwise have been lost from a person's life.

Case in point: remember my post shortly after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan? Well, today I received a message in Facebook from one of the two young women I had met many years ago. How wonderful to know that at least one of them is OK and doing well. I was glad to hear from her and surprised to learn that she had done part of her schooling in the US only minutes away from my home. Wish I had known that earlier, but it's OK. It's just one more thing that will continue to bond us in our lives. The door is now open. Thank you, Facebook!

It really is a great way to reconnect with old friends and stay connected with current ones who move away.
