So Here I am...

So, it has been too long since my last hub and I got a bit antsy tonight. Mostly because I have been quite busy lately and part of me missed quite a few of my online friends. Especially here on hubpages. Actually I miss more virtual friends I have met on the web then real ones and it really makes me wonder....WHY?!!!!!! Why am I thinking about more people I have never met, then people I have?

It happens sometimes, "out of the blue." I just keep ticking along trying to accomplish many things and then WHAMMO!!! My virtual friends just appear in my memory like an old 16mm film of me walking with my parents. No tape anymore, just digital space. But this digital space plays a huge part of my so called life. Especially now.

I was walking with my daughter the other day and I had a hum of guilt all of a sudden. A few virtual friends and their real names or online identities just popped up in my mind. So as I sat and ate some delicious yogurt I thought about how I need to read some of my friends new hubs. So, when I got home I tried to read as much as I could and then I was too exhausted to comment. I then had no energy at all to write a new hub. So, tonight I thought I would write whatever was on my mind. There is so much more on my mind, but I am just too friggin tired!

I thought about when I first started here and how I was really trying to find myself. As I wrote more and more I slowly started to see the person that had changed because of life's circumstances, challenges and sudden surprises. Life got too busy and I could no longer see through the haze and I got lost for a while. But I noticed the more I wrote, the more I uncovered true feelings. I noticed as some of my dear "virtual friends" showed support, I started to get more confident as time went by. It really makes you see how much positive people in your life (virtual or real life) can do when you let them. I still hold dear a few hubbers here that have given me the strength to keep going. Most of the ones that I cherish, I have thanked in other hubs that I have written and I am still meeting new "virtual friends" all the time. I will always have a special place in my heart for James A Watkins who inspired me when I first started here "little by little." His comments meant so much to me and then we became really great "virtual friends." Ofcourse there is also Lovey who is amazing and a fantastic writer, but for now he is in our Bat Cave near the garden and that is ok. Right Lovey? ha

"This is Liz baby"....."Now come out and play!"

The main point is that I want to say to all of you who leave me beautiful comments and take the time to be here, that it never goes unnoticed. I always know the ones who have supported me and also have gotten me real deep. There have been quite a few times that someone's comment has really touched me. I guess I am trying to tell you that "I'm Virtually Yours" and I hope when I take the time to tell you how wonderful you are that you really "hear me." That is why I am here. And if we are close or have bonded here, you are probably reading this.

I would tell anyone who wants to write to just write and let the emotions and feelings come out of hiding. This has been a sort of cleansing for me in the past year or so because even if I write something really "out there" like my virtual lovers hubs or sci-fi hubs, I know that I am reaching deep and sharing a very sacred part of me. The part of me that has been in hiding for quite a while.

So, thank you to all of you that are always here to support me and my writing. I hope that I give you the same feeling when I can take the time to comment. A little less time now cause my other careers are taking priority and my energy is elsewhere.

But always remember this........I will always be "Virtually Yours."

      I am moved and honored that you mentioned me in this Hub. Thank you, my dear. The first time I read something you wrote I was struck by the vivacious wit and utter charm you exude, besides your sheer intelligence. This page is that rare thing I see as writing truly from the heart. And you are a rare and beauteous thing yourself. I am thankful to have you as my friend.

      Thanks for visiting my last hub. I know you are so busy. But as your "virtual friend" I always wait your new hub. Don't ever thought and made this as a burden in your shoulder, but take it easy. Don't worry GPAGE, there are so many "virtual friend" who always care with you, including me. At least I know that you are still "fine" and "healthy". If you have time I believe you could make such of beautiful and great hub. But this hub is "beautiful" for me. I am glad you come back. My "love" is always for you. Vote up as usual. Take care

      Blessing and hugs,

      G, it was wonderful to see a new hub from you and your words were poignant to say the least. Your writing is always very vibrant and enjoyable and I'm happy to see you back at it again. I have not had as much time to post on hubpages myself, but I have been gathering more fodder at least to write about, and now that I am back in CA again and settled in I hope to have more time for reading and writing, and virtualizing with friends. Best JM

      Beautiful G.

      I was just thinking about the same things the other day. How my virtual friends mean so much to me now, and they are now so much a part of my daily life.

      You are a beautiful person, even though we've met only virtually. But i feel it.

      Last week, when i was feeling a bit low, i came to HP to re read your hub: 'This Too Shall Pass'. I realise that when i'm feeling low, that great hub comes to mind. And then i chill, and really do start to feel better.

      Thank you for another great hub. I am sure that, just as i am, all your virtual friends will feel touched.

      Hey GPAGE! I hear you!! I'm thankful for HubPages "Hubs by your favorite authors" emails. I smiled when I saw your name pop up. I knew I was in for a treat. This Hub went especially well for me. I can identify with everything you wrote and write.
