I recently wrote about connections in my weekly newsletter here.

And I got to thinking.

The internet is all about connections ~ literally and figuratively.

Those little bytes of data are right now streaming from my keys, down the cable and spewing forth into the world, making connections.

The internet allows introverts, like me, or those that like their alone time, also like me, to make connections that  otherwise they might not have made.

Have you noticed, too, the intricate web of such connections? Six degrees of separation and all that.

It’s a small world after all.

You know that song [earworm alert] was written in 1963, well before the internet exploded and morphed into what it is today.

It’s a world of laughter, a world of tears.
It’s a world of hopes and a world of fears.
There’s so much that we share,
That it’s time we’re aware
It’s a small world after all.

But it’s kind of appropriate.
