I received an email the other day from HD Honscheid, an old friend with whom I used to work at Spectra Medical Systems,. HD also worked at Sun while I was there and his wife, Una was my pediatrician's nurse when the girls were young. HD and Una are retired now and just took a wonderful trip to Japan. The pictures on their web site are fantastic. Looking at them really gives you a feel for the cultural experience they had. Getting to know people on a trip is so much more rewarding than just a site seeing.
His email really made me remember one of the main reasons I blog. I blog to keep in touch with friends and family. Every once and a while my mind strays from my purpose in blogging and I wish for a bigger readership. His email snapped me back on track. Blogging has not only helped me stay in contact with old friends who I cherish but it has also enabled me to make several new friends. In my mind that is what blogging is all about.
