You know the feeling well.
The first tentative steps into the room and the warm glow as you join the party.

With time we increased in number.
We watched each character blossom, but over time some reached a fork in the road of their lives, and for a while have taken that other route. They are not forgotten.

We are a family.
We are the Loose Bloggers Consortium.
