When someone disappears from the blogosphere, we don’t get any closure. Where’d they go? Why won’t they answer their email? Why did they delete their site?
It’s like when a relationship ends because one person just refuses to return calls.
It’s enough to make one a stalker. But so often, we don’t even know their real names, although we walked with them through hell and heartache for a short time.
We still care about them though. And worry. And pray. And I wonder if I would have the courage to report back in if I spent the holidays drinking to make up for lost time. I hope I would, but this does not fit with my behavior in the past.
But on the flip side, it’s so nice when someone new comes along. Redemption! Here is a new friend — Girl Undrunk, who has just joined the online healing community.
