When I read my friend's words "wonderful big family", I immediately thought about the whole world. We're all connected, doing it together, learning to extend love and forgiveness.

On a more personal level, for me, the family I make (in other words, my friends, my "family of choice") is far more satisfying and supportive -- nurturing -- than the biological family I was born into.

What is odd is that this is a very recent human step (phenomenon), post 1980's and the birth of modern computers and then the internet. Without it I wouldn't know you at all, and if karma had intended us to meet it would have been very different.

Perhaps like Shakespeares 'seven ages of man' this is one of the 'nth ages of mankind'. Whatever it is I glad of it, and of chancing upon another member of my global family.

I can't put it better.
