I’m a geek. I married a geek who happens to fly airplanes for the Navy. Together, we fight crime! Together, we volunteer with the Civil Air Patrol, read and watch a ton of science fiction, cook, celebrate Jewish holidays, play games both board and computer, and laugh until we wish we had a 100% O2 switch we could flip just to catch our breath.
Sometimes, though, Navy life forces us to make “together” a state of mind rather than a physical reality. I find a certain resonance between the virtual togetherness that makes up a significant chunk of a military marriage and the virtual community of the Internet. I blog because those connections — all in our heads or not — are important.
