The most amazing thing to me about the internet is that we can have connections with people that we would never meet in a million years. I met you lot in London, people I would have never had occasion to cross paths with. And it was a wonderful and interesting experience. Today I met another person that I only knew from the internet, the author of The Daily Coyote.
This is a blog that I have been reading for a couple of years, my friend found it somehow and we have kept on reading it. Out of necessity she adopted a baby coyote when he was only 10 days old. She is a talented photographer and the blog is mostly photos, with stories about Charlie the coyote, her dog Chloe, and the cats Eli and Mushy. She has another blog about the rest of her farmily (not a mis-spelling): the bull Sir Baby, the cows Daisy, Maia, Fiona, Leila, and the new punk chickens.
Besides these animals she also raises beef cattle, and that is how I met her. I bought a 1/4 of one of her beautiful, grass-fed, dry aged Angus beef and we met at a truck stop outside of town to pick this up. The meat was in some boxes, cut, wrapped and frozen. I also got an ankle and hoof for my friend’s dogs and she was thrilled to get this (Miss P has dental problems, so no bones for her.)
I am so blessed that although I am a shy person, I have been able to meet such interesting people through the magic of the internet. I have also done art projects with people I have never personally met.
p.s. I got one of my art pieces accepted into an art show!
