A Visit from Robert Frost's Banjo

Last week, I enjoyed a lovely visit in person from your friend and mine, John Hayes, who mans the controls over at Robert Frost’s Banjo.

Blogging has become a rather important part of our lives, those of us who routinely pop in on each other’s blogs. I’m not sure I realized how important until John announced his trans-continental trek and I looked forward to it as well, hoping we would have an opportunity to meet.

It meant a lot to me that he went out of his way to visit me. In the course of our conversation, where we discussed everything from our blogs, to shoes and ships and ceiling wax (finish the line yourself), I saw firsthand that the driving force of his unique and gentle blog is his own kindly and intelligent self, and that I am richer not only for reading Robert Frost’s Banjo, but being lucky enough to meet him.

I may never get to meet most of you, whose blogs I visit and who visit this blog and leave your comments. But I really enjoy the chats. I just wanted you to know.

Wow--thanks for the kind words! Getting to meet blog friends was a high point of my travels, & I'd say that the intelligence & humor & enthusiasm of your three blogs is very much present in person!

Thanks again!

Looking forward to your summation from sea to shining sea, or almost.

Wow, what a great visit! Makes you understand the power of blogging....

Yes, Lynsey, I wonder if the power of the bonds we develop through this unusual method are stronger than we know.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often
