What you say is true, and I too have made electronic friends on the net. No
one knows that better than you! But in the cases of some of them, I'd sure
like to make them dinner and sit around the table afterwards sharing human
contact. When I first came to theosophy I did so look forward to the Lodge
Meetings, and Federation Meetings and programs etc. We had a lot of fun.
Sure we had disagreements but it's hard to villify someone everyone's seen
with crumbs in their beard! It is a very great concern of mine that, due to
electronic communications we will lose actual human to human contact.
