There is that space
between people across the room,
that might as well be miles.
Then there are those far away
that seem close as across the table.

I can't say much about the first three lines of your stellar and insightful poetry, Miss Lori,
but as for the last two...this is how I feel toward you.

...just bein' Bluesy

When two people cover everything from heirlooms to flypaper in just one day...it means something!

It means we are birds of a feather.
I guess we're just a couple of blue footed boobies.   ~L

Very well stated Lori Lou and oft times truer than not...In distance I find bridging the gap works wonders Takes effort but well worth it!
