In real life, I’ve met and worked with people who have headed off in different directions. They were so close, but now are gone.
In the virtual world, I’ve been taking a series of on-line courses with people I never expect to meet face-to-face. Nevertheless, I feel I’ve gotten to know them fairly well.
In the giant scheme of things, maybe this is a foreshadowing. Soon, in the next life we may know people on a similar basis—”I never actually met you before, but I know you and will spend eternity with you.”
Kind of hard to wrap your mind around, isn’t it?
