The Loveliest Paradox

It's a strange thing. Many of my EP circle friends... I don't know who they are, really, but I would still jump in front of a bullet to save most of them. These two emotions have nothing to do with one another, but even so... it's interesting.

On that same note, it's so easy to make friends with people here. All I really have to do is add them to my circle and/or leave a nice comment. Some of them, on the first reply to me, say something like, "That's so sweet" or "That's so thoughtful." This is something I don't really get in real life.

My home page tells my favorite quote, but for those who don't want to hunt it down, I'll share it here. Credit Drew Barrymore: "I love hugging! I wish I was an octopus, so I could hug 10 people at a time!" In that vein, I wish I could have a meeting with all my EP buds, and then sprout enough tentacles to give them all a nice big hug---an appreciation for what they do in my life.

Great story, rustyguy. <br />

I feel exactly the same way about my friends here on EP, and have had very similar experiences to yours regarding reaching out to people...!<br />
