Another oceanside chat for people who enjoy them. Apparently quite a few people enjoy them!
I get started talking about a pen friend and a phone friend, good stuff and various reasons things in communications have been clogged.
General pep-talk about the current upbringing in kids to the previous upbringing I experienced with pretty crappy distractions that weren’t as bad as now, but still pretty bad.
I make it very clear here that I never wanted a parasocial relationship with my listeners. I wanted a social one. And? I still do!
However much the technology changed to alter anyone's sociability? It didn’t change mine!
Why letter writing is very, very, important, even now. How the friends I’ve finally made in this have rewarded me with great company. (The whole reason I began this series.)
A little study time with a DS episode, a wee, wee bit of Magda... and then: “*Spoiler*”: The phases of Quentin Collins, very basic: 1969; Evil Ghost (dead), 1897; Playboy (alive), Killed (dead), Zombie (dead/alive), Not Zombie (alive), Werewolf Curse (still alive), Magic Portrait takes curse and then he is immortal (indefinitely alive). Then fun chat about Kitty Soames.
More on the topic of the non-canon romance, Julia/Barnabas phenomenon. Very calmly expressed. As well as my experience with healthy rejections and unhealthy reactions over the years. (A little more Jo March too.)
Sprinkled in this are thoughts on a new "hero" of mine: Tim Wu. (I'm just not sure where all I mention him, pardon.)
I wrap up with sober thoughts over more concentration on maintaining the help, pulling away from commercial sites, and focusing more on personal life, correspondence and friendship.
