Today is a special day. It is my husband’s birthday.
But that is not why it is special (I’m sorry cc).
It is special because I happened to remember that my other almost-dead email account needs some space cleanup. I have stopped using it for a long time but never bothered to close it for good, so I check it once every a few months to cleanup junks and then leave.
I opened the mailbox and surprisingly saw a new mail in my friends folder. All my friends know I’ve stopped using this account. Apparently, one of them forgot. It was simply an invitation to be added to his friends list in his newly created Windows Live Space.
His newly created Windows Live Space _two months ago_.
I followed the link and arrived at his space. And from there linked a couple of (my) other friends’ spaces.
Then I started reading.
Those are friends I have not been in touch with for a long time. I know little about what/how they are doing with their life, except they are all doing fine.
Now I know more, a lot more.
That was when it became special.
I have had blogs before. Once for fun, once for my kitties. None of them lasted long. Life is hectic and too much work is already in it.
However, I also know that all good things come at a price, and not a single one of them comes without work.
And most importantly, for the first time, I believe I can keep it up. Not for friends, although they are very important :), but more importantly, I want to do this for myself.
So here it is. The Between.
