Yes, I Talk to a Wall
I remember when someone first invited me to join Facebook. I thought it rather dry and boring, but since my girls and other family members were on it I decided to join if for no other reason than to keep up with them. I couldn't know it would become such a big part of my life. Yes, I talk to a wall.
From that doubtful beginning I have met so many people that have become great friends. I know there are those who say you can't call people friends if your only contact is electronically, but I would argue that point. A friend is someone who is there for you in whatever life throws your way. I can post something on my wall about what is going on in my life and my "friends" are there to encourage, celebrate, and give advice when I need it.
No, I am not a recluse typing away in internet anonymity. I am active socially and with my family. Facebook is a means for me to communicate with the world on a digital wall. It is open twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. I am an insomniac who can find someone to talk to at 3:00 a. m. to make the night a little less lonely.
