It was chilly on Sunday morning
As I stood outside a closed Crumbs Cupcake shop
Waiting to spend real time with a Slicer,
Connected in our virtual reality
The streets of Ridgewood longed for more of us
But it was easier to make eye contact with each female passerby
As time moved us closer to 10.
An hour in real time
at a small table at the window.
Cupcakes to go,
Coffee to sip
As we talked, f-t-f.
Just one long road
our online foundation.
A year ago, motivated to write daily
With the Slice of Life Community,
Both of us took the challenge to heart:
First sharing our link
And then clicking around
Reading, leaving comments.
For that month of March ’10,
And beyond, to weekly Slice of Life Tuesdays,
And another full month of March Slices,
We are virtual.
We are real time.
We are connected.
