It is fascinating how the internet makes it easy to connect. I can keep in touch with clients and people I have met recently and I have heard from people that I have not heard from in a long time. I can visit sites that feature very specialized subject matter and share with others who care about the same subjects.

And it is all just a few clicks away. It was not that long ago that keeping in touch with friends who lived in other parts of the country meant running up large phone bills. Exchanging handwritten letters took weeks. Now sending an email to someone thousands of miles away is no more expensive than sending a message to someone in the same town.

Connections help us realize what a small place the world is, even though it is also a great big place.

I like the way that we can exchange ideas with people we only had a chance to meet briefly in person and get to know them so that when we do get to see them again, we already feel like we know them better.

It would be hard to ever go back to the times when we did not have email or websites. Now that we know how it all works, we can only go forward. It is really a pleasure to check the email and find messages from old friends and new friends and keep in touch easily. It is also a good business building tool, and I am learning more about how to use it all the time. There are so many ways that you can always waste time on dead ends before finding the more efficient ways.

Connecting our energies is certainly amazing using this technology.
