I love my life.
I really do.
And I do not wish for the opportunity to do any of it over again.
Nevertheless I have on many occasions experienced the thrill of reading about the lives of others and becoming absorbed in their stories to the extent that their joys and adventures and insights feel almost like my joys and adventures and insights. Vicarious thrills.
Blogging, and lurking, and surfing the interwebs introduces me to so many more passionate lives.
Like this young couple gardening in the Oregon wilds:
And this recent art school grad:
And this traveler and literature lover at Oxford:
And this wild woman artist in Washington and Idaho:
Who are some of the interesting individuals you have encountered in your interweb explorations?
