One such blogger, "dragonflyfilly", turned out to live only a half hour north of White Rock, although we met at Iang's, waaay ooover in Nottingham, UK ... and, it wasn't that long ago either!
She picked up on the "shapeshifter" description at my profile and that opened up the door to a wonderful connection that is in its way to becoming a friendship.
We soon talked on the phone, and as most people that come to our lives - had a gift for me - she came along with information I needed to have.
Although her understanding of "shapeshifting" and mine turned out to be different, I am absolutely thrilled that in order for me to gain more knowledge she recommended Ted Andrews' Animal Speak: The spiritual and Magical Powers of Creatures Great and Small. Thus, opening a door I needed to enter... How wonderful!
This past Friday we had the opportunity to meet personally as she drove down (South) for an afternoon visit and an evening Gallery Opening/Reception. I can only describe it as the meeting of two dear old friends - utterly comfortable with each other....
She gifted me with a very special (mystery) berry jam, made by herself, which photo does not want to be posted for some reason - been trying for a couple of days - to view such precious jar you must visit PJ's blog or otherwise, just imagine it!
As in food mags - PJ wanted us to take some pics ... , we had a lot of play and laughter throughout the afternoon and evening between all the serious talk - and, some blog visiting... owwhhhh, yeeeees! We "lurked" around some...
