    I had written a hub about a man long gone, a wee bio with some of his music. The Harlem Globetrotter theme. Today someone visited this hub after joining hubpages just to tell he and his family were friends of this man. He told me a  few things of personal knowledge and it sent a chill down my spine. He thanked me for my hub. I never expected anything like that. Just wanted to share this with y'all. Ain't hubpages wonderful?

    I've had one or two similar experiences. I love when that happens!
    By the way, I also love the Globetrotters theme(Sweet Georgia Brown).

      Ok, it's happened a few times, but here's my favorite. I wrote a hub about a band from the 70's that inspired me to become a professional musician. Most of them died in a plane crash in '74 or '75. I recently got a comment and an email from the surviving bass player (Dartanyan Brown), thanking me for keeping alive the memory of a great band that has fallen from most peoples' memories. Definite goosebumps!

    Amazing how this devise that everyone said would make the world so impersonal is able to help people make these kind of connections. And wonderful that you can make a total stranger happy. But I think that you do that a lot, ralwus.
