This post is about a topic that I think about often….namely, friends in our circle of virtual friendship. I did not know the subject of this, but in fact…popular as he was, he is thus gaining even more interest.
There are exceptional people you can come across in life if you are lucky, people who make you feel like a better version of you. Smarter. Prettier. Kinder. More patient.
Not empty flattery. No. They have a knack for finding the gem of you and making you sparkle and shine.
I have been blessed to find a few of these people in my lifetime. Paul Curran was one of those. I looked forward to his comments for that very selfish reason. He made me feel better about me.
I realize that he was a virtual friend, someone I never met, but what I feel now is a very real sense of grief and sadness. Strangely that is made worse by the fact that I can find no obituary, no mark of his passing except for the deafening silence that exists now on my blog and on many others.
