New World Friends

If your over forty, how many friends have you made in the last ten, fifteen years?  How many through church,work, schools?  How many through bars, and social gatherings? How many via the internet?

In the last fifteen years, the majority of the people I’ve met has been via the net.   Chat rooms, blogs, and other internet social sites.      Through the net I have made friends with people from all over the world.

Most of these friendships are three dimensional, they are as close as any of my traditional relationships.  I didn’t know anyone of my first visit to Toronto, on my second visit, I met with nearly a dozen people. Through the years many close international friendship began with a bagel and a cup of coffee.

What is person who doesn’t drink or smoke doing in a bar? 

There was a time, when you wanted to meet someone, you went to a bar.

The internet has replaced the bar.  I can’t remember, the last time I’ve been to a bar where alcohol was served to meet someone.  Today my bar of choice serves juice, tea and coffee.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
