It's a Small World

September 14, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Several years ago I went to West Virginia for a photo workshop on my way to a professional conference at Duke University the following week. In between the two events I had a free day besides the time needed for travel. I saw that Floyd County, Virginia was on the way. Fred First, a blogger at Fragments from Floyd, was someone I wanted to meet. I spent the night in a nearby motel so Fred and I could have breakfast together in downtown Floyd. And our meeting was all that I had hoped. Fred is a kindred spirit who shared many of my interests. I had read his blog for several years but I found him to be even more engaging in person. He felt like he was an old friend, who happened to live a long way away. Afterwards I drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway and encountered fog and this tree. I did not know what was beyond the tree for I could barely see it. I felt like I was in a small world, just like my breakfast conversation a few hours before. I think the world would be a lot different if we lived like it was small and that what we said and did would have consequences that mattered. A world no further than we could see.
