WE'RE GOING TO NEED NEW WORDS FOR EMOTIONS RELATING TO CONNECTIONS MADE ON THE INTERNET
regisl @regisl
I YEARN FOR THE PRESENCE OF PEOPLE I’VE NEVER MET. THAT’S NOT “MISSING” THEM BUT IT'S CLOSE.
regisl @regisl
MAYBE IT’S NOT THE WORDS THAT NEED TO CHANGE.
regisl @regisl
IF YOU'RE LOVE WITH SOMEONE WHOM YOU’VE TALKED WITH ONLY ON THE INTERNET, DOES THAT DIMINISH THE LOVE?
regisl @regisl
I FIND INSPIRATION FROM THE AMBIENT PRESENCE OF CERTAIN OTHER PEOPLE VIA TWITTER. IS THAT “COMFORT”? IS THAT “FAMILIARITY”?
regisl @regisl
OR DOES THAT CREATE NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOVE?
regisl @regisl
IF SOMEONE BEFRIENDS YOU, DOES IT MATTER HOW YOU COMMUNICATE?
regisl @regisl
IF YOU TELL SOMEONE YOU WERE THINKING OF THEM VIA TWEET, DOES THAT MAKE THE EFFECT ANY DIFFERENT THAN IF YOU TOLD THEM BY PHONE?
regisl @regisl
DOES THE VECTOR OF THE EMOTION MATTER? OR DO YOU REMEMBER THE FEELING?
regisl @regisl
I’VE KNOWN @RIGAMAROCK AND @_SHRINE FOR AROUND SIX YEARS OR MORE. WE’VE *NEVER* MET AND MAYBE NEVER WILL.
regisl @regisl
BUT WE HAVE SHARED OUR LIVES WITH EACH OTHER AND I CONSIDER THEM FRIENDS IN THE SAME WAY I DO OTHERS WHOM I *HAVE* MET.
regisl @regisl
I FEEL HAPPY THAT WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO CONNECT IN THAT WAY.
regisl @regisl
THAT MIGHT NOT BE FOR EVERYONE. NOT EVERYONE FEELS STRONG CONNECTIONS ONLINE.
regisl @regisl
MAYBE YOU DON’T HAVE TO FEEL STUPID WHEN YOU SAY “ I MET THIS GUY ONLINE” OR “I’M ONLINE DATING”
regisl @regisl
MAYBE YOU CAN FALL IN LOVE WITH A COLLECTION OF WORDS AND IMAGES WITH A PERSON BEHIND IT.
regisl @regisl
MAYBE A COLLECTION OF WORDS AND IMAGES CAN BE YOUR FRIEND. MAYBE A COLLECTION OF WORDS AND IMAGES CAN MAKE YOU SMILE.
regisl @regisl
I AM THANKFUL WE LIVE IN THE AGE OF THE INTERNET SO WE GET THE CHANCE TO BE FRIENDS AND HELP EACH OTHER
regisl @regisl
I AM THANKFUL YOU ARE HERE, FINDING A WAY TO USE TWITTER, SHARING SPACE WITH ME
regisl @regisl
I AM THANKFUL TWITTER GIVES ME THE CHANCE TO EXPLORE NEW TOPICS AND TO DELVE MORE DEEPLY INTO OLD TOPICS EVEN IF IT IS NOT PERFECT
regisl @regisl
I AM THANKFUL THAT TWITTER GIVES ME THIS VAST NETWORK OF FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS
regisl @regisl
WHICHEVER WAY YOU FEEL: THAT THIS IS IMPORTANT/TRIVIAL, PROFOUND/MUNDANE, FAKE/REAL, I HOPE YOU TAKE SOMETHING FROM IT
regisl @regisl
I KNOW SOME OF YOU DON'T FEEL THIS WAY AND I KNOW SOME OF YOU DO, I'M NOT GOING TO TELL YOU TO CHANGE OR THAT YOU'RE WRONG OR RIGHT.
regisl @regisl
EVERY DAY THAT I WAKE UP I GET TO SHARE MY THOUGHTS AND HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS AND THAT'S A *MIRACLE*
regisl @regisl
AND I GET TO WAKE UP TO EMAILS AND TEXT MESSAGES FROM PEOPLE WHO CARE AND THAT'S *AMAZING*
regisl @regisl
THESE ARE MIRACLES BUT THEY'RE NOT ABOUT REALLY THE ELECTRONICS OR THE SOFTWARE, THEY'RE ABOUT *YOU* AND AND EVERYONE ELSE HERE
