I Met A Man On Line

I met a man on line.

Sitting on my computer.

Reading and writing blogs.

Innocence On The Computer

WordPress blogs to be exact.

You know how it is.

You make comments.  Get comments.  Hit likes, and wonder who is liking you.

You talk to people.

Dialogue is created.

Then….he was there.

On the other side of the computer.

There He Is

Talking to me via the internet.

Distance was nothing to words.

Words went from computer to computer with ease.

We learned each others stories.

Everyone who lives has an experience to share.

That’s why we write.

That’s why we read.

Computer To Computer

Finally, it couldn’t be helped.

I had to tell my husband.

And he said…

Let’s go see him.

On A Jet Plane

So we did.

Chatter Master and Flaham

Our world is huge.

It seems smaller when we can communicate across the globe in a matter of seconds.

The Whole Wide World

Is at our fingertips.

To meet.

To know.

To learn about.

To appreciate.


And I do.


Which is why my husband and I flew to Florida for lunch today.

To meet a guy I met on line.

For lunch.

And now we’re flying home.

We are now officially jet setters.

  1. Yes, it is a big world out there with the internet connecting us all together in the most unlikely of ways. I love the illustrations on your blog. They are unique.


  2. Colleen, My gift was delivered today, and it was beyond expectations. You and David are such wonderful people, and my wife and I had a super time. There is no way I can thank you enough. I write to give Cari memories, this gift will always be with me. I truly hope we have another opportunity. Please take care, Love Bill


    • 🙂 Aw Bill! 🙂 It was a great day wasn’t it? You were EXACTLY like YOU that I got to know on the ‘blog’. Exactly! I felt like I knew you as soon as I saw you. And the same with Stephanie. What comfort!!!! I hope we do as well. Mom said hi again!!!!!


      • HI MOM ! ! !, Colleen and David were wonderful guests, We had a great time, and not once did Colleen ask if we were there yet, Though everyone talked and talked and talked It was a day of joy . Thanks for letting your little girl go. Take care, Bill


  3. Woo hoo, you! Why not?! I intend to do this but on a larger scale. In a year or two, I plan an extended global itinerary for the primary purpose of meeting people and getting to experience a bit of them and their world/culture. Many of them will be from internet exchanges as well. I’m excited you chose to do this, Colleen. 🙂


    • Good for you Eric! That is amazing! I am sure you will be amazed. I think sometimes we get insulated in our own ‘little’ worlds. And reading so much about others sure opens our eyes to the existence of other incredible people we otherwise would never have known or come in to any contact with. I’m amazed at all of the beautiful people out there.


  4. Having the flying phobia, I applaud you. I’ll bet it was nice to have the face to face conversation. While the computer is nice, personal is best.
