It is odd how I have felt the absence of my blogging friends these past days; against my inclination I have felt like these oblique exchanges formed, for me at least, a kind of socializing that I look forward to most days. And while I was aware of, and wary of, the tenuous connections that are forged over the internet, actually meeting Thierry, and knowing Bao for a number of years, and then establishing a real connection with Nghiem, has convinced me that it is not the medium that creates or negates the validity of a relationship, but the persons themselves. So I am not worried; I know that they will return. Or, if they do not, it will not be a disappearance, which I define as an absence unexplained.
