Righto. So we all know by now that My name is Gaelic for Girl. But I am not the only Girl who posts here into the Void. I met another Colleen-Girl. I think I met her from here and then I read her blog and just knew that she was a kindred.
Is it ironic that we have the same name, are close in age, have the same values and beliefs and live in about a twenty mile radius of each other? I don't know...but my curiosity finally got the better of me and we decided to meet.
I just got back from coffee with Colleen and I can tell you, this girl is great! She's warm, beautiful and sincere.... And I met her online!!! Funny. I missed her at first when I walked in, kinda. I saw her blond hair, but kept scanning the room. Then after I ordered my Americano I noticed the same blond pop her head over the counter and I saw just here eyes and recognized her immediately! Didn't I say in this post that I would need a second look? I think that if a person is a good writer than their personality can really come across in what they write. I think that Colleen's personality does, and it's lovely. I don't know if I believe that about myself though. You would have to be the judge of that if you met me.
All I can say is that it was definitely fun to meet someone from Blogger. I never imagined that I would. It's funny how much smaller the world seems when we reach out to each other. It's a good safe feeling, connecting to people. Getting beyond the surface is not always an easy thing to do, but so worth it when we take the time to get out of our comfort zones, explore the possibilities and act with purpose.
