I don’t know much about you. For all I know you might have voted the exact opposite I did in November, or you might have been rooting for the American athletes to fail in the London Olympics.
You also don’t know me. For example, many of my blogging best friends are women who don’t know that being a Japanese American male, I am Patriarchy’s uber child. I have not always treated women the way they deserve to be treated. If you talked to my ex-girlfriends and even my wife, they would tell you that, at best, I am a work in progress. Although my life’s work centers around peace, I have not always been a peaceful person in thoughts, words, or actions.
The one thing I do know from being your blogging best friend is who we want to be, who we strive to be. I know what is in our souls trying to get out, even if our consciousness is not in accord with that spirit.
Blogging allows us to create a self, community, and world we have always dreamed of. It allows us to learn from our mistakes and grow. To communicate on a daily basis and empathize with each other which leads to understanding, love, and, eventually, peace.
What I am trying to say is I appreciate you being my friends, sharing my vision, and opening your hearts to let us connect in a way we were always meant to connect, in a way that I have found hard to connect with others in my “real” life. Our connection changes how I interact with the world and what the world becomes.
What I’m really saying is that I love you guys even though we’ve never met.
Your BFF, Kozo
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
Thank you for reading, sharing, and/or smiling.
Are the connections you have made through blogging unique? In what ways? Please share.
