Remembering NC Mountainwoman

As I sat at the dining room table, taking pictures of the winter birds at the feeder, I was reminded of a long-time and sadly missed blog friend, Carolyn Powell, aka NCMountainwoman.

She and I never met in person, but we shared a love of wild birds, dogs, reading, liberal politics, and our granddaughters--almost the same age.

A virtual friendship can be quite real, and the loss of a virtual friend leaves an ache in our hearts. 

Carolyn has been gone for quite some time now, but I look forward to occasional Facebook posts from her son, documenting Carolyn's granddaughter's funny sayings.

My life is richer for having 'known' Carolyn and for all my virtual friends.

That's one social interaction the pandemic can't mess with.

I too am thankful for my friends in blogland. I appreciate that you've become a regular commenter on my blog and that I can do the same for you. And this spring I'll marvel in the white irises you sent me.

I also remember Carolyn who lived a bit south of me. We never met in person either, but there were great comments between our blogs, and I loved when she shared her love of her beautiful dogs. Thanks for bringing her back to my attention. I don't think I get the posts her son has been adding. I did enjoy her spirit very highly.

I didn’t know her but am reminded that there have been a few passings of blog friends.

A friend is a friend, whatever the circumstances. My FB friends have been a blessing in bad times.

She left an ache…
I know that feeling

I’m peeking back into blogging…
Fearing what may be gone
It was so fulfilling having kindred folk
Caring across the intern
It was real
And loved
