About Face in a Crowd

Strangers, someone said, are just people you haven’t met yet. Until you meet them, they’re just faces in a crowd that you pass while hurrying to an appointment. They’re the other people standing in the elevator with their eyeballs rolled upward, fixed on the floor numbers. Nameless people who don’t stand out to you simply because you’ve never met them before. After the introduction is made, well, that’s a different story. You find out you grew up in the same town or city, have the same interests–or opposing viewpoints–and share a love of books, travel or dogs. Faces in a crowd.  There are a lot of us.

    The best part about online strangers as blogging friends is just that, they become a non stranger,…I have met some of my bestest girl friends online…forever. Loved this.

      I love that we can be friends across time zones, countries, hemispheres–whatever. No limits.

    Each face in a crowd has their own story. I love to hear their stories.
