So I just had a GREAT catchup call with an old colleague/friend and it occurred to me that while it is hard at the moment for most of us to get together in person maybe there are other folks who might be interested in doing “walk and talk” dates with forum friends.
If others are interested I’m up for discussion of how it would work logistically. My initial thought – partly because the winter weather is so unpredictable around here – is that I’ll post a “anybody interested?” message a day or two before or even the day of, propose a time that works for me, and then we can confirm a time and exchange numbers via PM.
Also, if there are folks who would like to chat but don’t have the spoons for something scheduled, you can PM me your number and from time to time I’ll ping you a text message to see if you are up to a talk that day. Cant promise to be a regular or reliable source of support for anybody until I get a feel for how this kind of interaction works in my daily life, but I know a lot of us are struggling for connection and support and this is something I would like to offer in a way that also helps me get out and moving.
Anyway, consider this a VERY experimental thing – let’s see how and where it goes!
