Virtual Loss

Today brought news of the death of a fellow blogger, whose valuable and interesting opinions on a wide range of topics always offered food for thought and comment. We didn't always agree. We'd never met. I only knew her by a pen name. A woman seemingly very loving and supportive of her family. Accomplished. Highly intelligent. A former teacher and then lawyer; most recently an advocate for and volunteer to the downtrodden. Already, I miss her. A virtual acquaintance. A friend? The new world, with its virgin frontiers to explore and deal with. Surreal emotions, perhaps. Tangible, nonetheless.
May she rest in peace.
