My ship is the Fantasy on the right!
You ever heard the expression "Two Ships passing in the Night"? There's several ways this comment is so true. One way is just as it sounds, ships passing in the night. When I went on a cruise in January 2008, sometimes I would wake up and the only sound I heard was the slight throbbing of the ships engines. It wasn't loud as I was eight decks above the engine rooms, but in the quiet of the night, I could feel it and hear it, that's when I would pull back the curtains on the window and look at at the black sea and sky. Sometimes off in the distance I would see another ship's lights and watch it glide slowly by. As I sat there, I wondered about the people aboard.
Another way this phrase fits is blogging friends. Sometimes you only meet them through one comment they leave. But that one comment can sometimes give you so much information. Such as where they live, what's on their mind. They leave such a kind comment or an encouraging word. Just that moment in time, that passing in the night can mean so much. It's amazing how many people I'v met from all over the world. The lives I've learned about, just with writing! People are truly interesting! It's amazing!
