What I have enjoyed

over the years, I never knew who I was talking to. I didn't know if it was a male or female, color, social class, fat, thin, pretty, ugly, young, old, all the stuff that gets in the way of listening.

Many times I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the person I was talking to was different than what I had imagined.

I like all the names we choose for ourselves, so many creative names and some interesting stories behind them.

We have the opportunity maybe for the first times in our lives to connect and learn from one another, without all the baggage society
heaps on us.

The people here are more interesting than the news stories, the many points of view and insight I gather are like panning for gold nuggets, I gain a wealth of knowledge that I would never have experienced off the internet.

Off the internet we probably would not interact or even notice one another, here we are all equal.

What a wonderful experience this has been for me.
