International Friendship Day-July 30

International Friendship Day seems like a good time to recognize the international friends we’ve made in the blogosphere.

Although we’ve never met
except in bits and bytes,
I feel we’ve met each other
in the blog posts  that we write

We sometimes bare our souls
and sometimes share the pain.
If it’s not a blog we care for
most  of us refrain
from acting like the trolls
who can drive us all insane.

I don’t have the memory or the capacity to recognize all of you who deserve mention (so if you are left off the list, please accept my apology)   Since this is International Friendship Day and I live in the United States, I hope my fellow Americans will not take umbrage at not being mentioned at this time.
