I thought about writing something to encourage people who are online to get offline and do something, in real time, with real people.
There are plenty of times, though, when we’d love that, when we want nothing more, and it just ain’t happening. No invitations. The crowd isn’t getting together. Everyone’s out of town. Or we’re between things — new in town, not able to travel, waiting on a relationship to blossom, you know…all sorts of reasons for liminal spaces or empty calendars.
