I am writing to ask your opinion on an addition to the blog. Working on the book today, I came up with the idea of adding a new page. It would provide a password-protected space where we could share memories and stories of our online friends, and in so doing, share them with people who understand.
I have written before about my experience of setting up a personal archive of conversations that Chris and I had, and the emails we exchanged. I found it an important part of preserving her memory, and didn’t want to wait. Some may not feel ready to begin such a project, so it is my hope that we can create a communal archive to share in each others’ memories of dear friends.
Now, more than ever, I can smile at memories of Chris which come out of nowhere, but sharing them makes me smile more. When somebody else knows about a memory it becomes more real, I think, in our own minds.
For now, I would appreciate your thoughts on this. Please feel free to leave a comment or use the Contact form.
Wishing you peace and strength on your journeys,
