Virtual to Reality
Obviously nothing bad happened during my expedition to the doctor’s office and all’s well. While the transfers to and from my Honda were no fun as usual, it certainly was a pleasure to get behind the wheel for an outing further than my driveway for the first time in a couple of months. In my mind I knew that driving wouldn’t present a problem, but after a couple of months without exercising the skill the mind-monkey was whispering ugly suggestions that I might not do so well after that period of inaction. Happily, any doubts I might have had disappeared like wisps of fog burning off in the sun once I got on the road, and I negotiated the trip without thinking further about it.
As fun as driving again was, it paled next to the enjoyable meeting last night with the couple who’d taken notice of my situation courtesy of Tom Woods’ publicizing my blog last week and expressed their desire to advocate locally for me.
Caleb, the gentleman of the pair, first contacted me last week and set aside time for the visit, while his charming young wife Jes insisted on preparing a lovely dinner for the occasion. I feel well and truly spoiled by such exclusive treatment, and I’m delighted that they’re willing to help spread the word about my cause among local people and groups who might be inclined to donate to the cause. Apart from the rare opportunity for socializing for a while with people I was meeting in person for the first time, it was gratifying to welcome people into my home who only knew of my details from two dimensional text, but who have now seen for themselves that I’m the real deal. I’m sure they needed no convincing after Dr. Woods lent his endorsement to this blog and my solution for solving my dilemma, but it was a good feeling nonetheless.
Jes, Caleb, I thank you two for your kindness last night, and look forward to working with you to speed this project along to get me mobile again. Meeting new friends from the online world in the real one is a real joy!
