Community: BPCREATES

The snow fell softly as I gazed out the window. My computer screen was aglow in the dim light. I tentatively touched the keyboard, and began typing. Slowly at first, but as the words began to flow my pace quickened.

Clickity, clack. Clickity, clack.

My finger poised and ready to hit the publish button.

CLICK.

Zoom!

My words flew into cyberspace for all the world to see, ex-boyfriends, frenemies, neighbors, family, collegues and strangers.

I waited for a reaction.

Nothing.

Then like a tsunami the comments poured into my soul.

“Thank you,” she said. “For writing this.”

“Oh, you are so funny,” she said.

“You’re not alone,” she said.

My heart filled with gratitude.

As my heart grew so did my connections to the online personas.

They became more than a screen name.

We met in real life and acted like crazy teenagers.

We shared a piece of chocolate cake and talked about raising boys.

We exchanged Christmas cards.

We bonded at conferences.

We became friends.

A community.
