On Friendship

Do you ever ponder how the internet has broadened our horizons, not only in terms of information, but in terms of friendship?

I mean, think about it! Truly overwhelming.

Life changing.

Since I began sharing my work online, I've meet so many amazing people from all over the world; people with whom I feel a genuine connection. Inspiring people. Kind people. Generous people. Friends.

And yes, there have also been those I've met who were dramatic and draining. But they're few and far between. Most have been an absolute delight - and have enriched my simple little life in ways I never could have imagined.

Thanks to the *magic* of technology (and to me, this computer is pure magic, hehe), I'm able to work at home, offering my humble creations to collectors all over the globe.

I connect with fellow artists, offering and receiving support and encouragement, sharing inspiration, triumphs and failures, ups and downs.

I've traveled the open road and experienced the wonder of new places with a true kindred spirit.

I've shared laughter and meals and conversation with people I admire and whose company is a blessing.

My world is bigger, my horizons are broader, my mind is open, and my soul enriched. I'm humbled and amazed at this time in which we live, and consider myself  incredibly blessed to be both witness and participant.

And to each of you I've met, and those I haven't yet, whether you read here in silence, or reach out with a comment, know this:

You lift me up. :)

Thank you, thank you, and thank you again.

Until next time,
♥ Carolee

I cannot agree more Carolee!!!! It is so wonderful to be able to share with so many kindred spirits that I would have otherwise never gotten to know.
I feel blessed everyday for these connections.
Thank YOU for your friendship!
You inspire me!

I've never met you in person but I've followed your art for years. And now that I've come to know you a little bit more through your blog, I'm even more impressed. Please know that both your words and your gorgeous art really touch people.
