A SerandEz-Raggedy Shabbos

HAHA okay so I get to write about this Shabbos at SerandEz/the Raggedys!

First of all, a HUGE yasher koach to all of the hosts for putting up with us all. I think the noise level *might* have reached 1000 decibels. Hehe. And as usual, the vast quantities of food was both astounding and amazingly delicious. (AND most of the candy got eaten. So there.)

Anyway, so Friday night, we were sitting around discussing the finer points of blogging, and we had an epiphany:

Blogging is really a conversation.

The beauty of it is that it can be shared by so many people from so many different perspectives, and that by taking the time to read and reread other people's thoughts, you can also allow yourself to absorb different viewpoints and to broaden your horizons and realize that hey, not everyone thinks the same way, and that's okay. And when it's done respectfully, the exchange of thoughts between commenters can be fun, humorous, touching and a wonderful way to connect with other people who may or may not share the same views.

No two people are not on fire.
