When I was in college getting a degree in Women's Studies, I dreamed of a Women's Circle. I longed for women who were going to be together, be supportive in a environment of acceptance. It was with great disappointment I sat down, in the first get together of the group, and listened the girls criticizing some female celebrity.
For some reason, it's been hard to make the same type of connection in "real life" as the ones I am making here. I feel a deep connection to the women who come here. I feel a love in my heart for their soul and being, a wish to send all that is good in me out into the universe to them.
I have an online friend. We chatted for the first time 12 years ago. We never met. I don't believe we ever will. I wonder if it is the vacuum from social expectations that allows us to be so brutally honest and open. I wonder if it is the fact that there is little to gain or lose when all that controls us is removed.
It is amazing that everything that I dreamed of has come true and continues to come true. I wished for a Women's Circle and I found a wonderful one here, through this blog.
