The continuity of online life…

One thing that struck me while talking to a friend who called up during my stay at home was that most of the time we talked of our online activities and online life. Life at that stage was so disconnected from all that was past and there was not much clarity on what was to come. There was a gap. There weren’t many stories of life in physical proximity, which we could share. And still we talked for quite sometime. It was about this blog and that website and a set of comment spammers (whose names I would not utter here again, lest it attracts them and they make another attack!! :-D). Now that was quite interesting. This is a new place, a new life, new set of people around. Everything has changed. There is so much of disconnect. And still, there is a connection through the blogs I write and through the blogs I read. I am filling up the thoughts that came in between in this blog the way you talk of the things that happened to your friends when you meet them after a long time. Similarly I am catching up on the blogs I usually read. No, I am not saying that it can substitute the life that stays in your physical surroundings, it just can not. And it should not – that’d be pretty unhealthy. But its comforting to have one thing that is continuous amidst all this discontinuity. Again, not that I am disliking the discontinuity, but its a discontinuity all the same 🙂
