Walrus has established her own routines around my house. She tells us exactly where she wants to sleep, how she wants to interact, when she wants to spend time outdoors without a leash or a tug, as in this instance in our lakeside fenced garden.
I don't play any instrument, but I sing, and she follows me around when she visits, mostly because I'm the cook, and she expects that every time I'm moving, I'm off to the kitchen to cook. Walrus then will sit attentively for the entire amount of time it takes to whip up a meal.
What a wonderful life and community she has established for herself. She likes and welcomes those who are most like her family; and, she loves and welcomes those who will feed her.
Isn't that how we established our blog community?
Don't we befriend those most like us? Writers befriending writers; ex-educators befriending ex-educators; retirees befriending.....
And we befriend those who can help us with our needs. If we enjoy cooking and collecting recipes, we sign up to follow cooking blogs.
I bet you can profile a person by the blogs she follows!
You can reconstruct their history.
You can see how she eats and shops.
Why, you can tell if she is a Republican or a Democrat!
There goes my attempt at keeping my identity safe from wiki leaks!
