it's nice to feel connected, to people, to ideas, to the vast expanse of the internet and all its possibilities. what a world to explore, so exciting and inspiring. so much to read and watch and discover. new people to meet and talk to and learn from. so great to see your face on the screen, to send you a cute sticker message. so great to hear what you have to say about me and the things i do, please tell me i'm interesting, please respond to the message i just sent out to no one in particular hoping that someone would see and someone would say something. sometimes the loudest spaces are the loneliest.
