A few days ago I wanted to put together a Facebook post to express my appreciation for the family and friends I’ve been able to connect to and stay in touch with because of Facebook. I find myself drawn there when I’m feeling lonely, or down, not because of the tool, but because of the people there. They have buoyed me up when I was struggling, they feed me when I need to keep going. And I’m able to return the strength to them when they need it. That’s why I love Facebook – because it gives me a way to stay in touch with the people I love.
But I have a rule. I’m a visual kind of guy. I want to express myself visually so I don’t ever post in FB without an image to go with it. So I put together this image to capture my feelings about these people who give me strength and companionship on this wild ride called life.
