This must be what speed dating is like.
After resolving to lift my eyes from my navel long enough to (re)connect with blogpals old and new, I began to delurk; I started with the RevGalBlogPals. Sadly, last night I could not access Blogspot blogs, which impeded my progress a great deal, but today I think I dropped by over 40. I started at the beginning; got impatient at about the mid-C's, started up again at the M's; got impatient again and started at the opposite end of the list. I figure if I keep skipping around like this I'll eventually get to everyone on the list, at which point I can segue over to much-neglected ringless blog buddies who've been with me from the git-go, and the Reconciling bloggers.
This is quite enjoyable. There is just so much life being lived, and shared, out there. Thanks to all for your insight, wit, honesty and generosity.
