Well through the last 5+ years have been part of this celebration as a member and 2 as a guest and have seen the toddling days and am now privy to the supersonic speed at which the site is growing.Congratulations to everybody who feels a bond to this site and beyond. The reach of the site is beyond the frontiers of the virtual world for those who dare while it keeps the cocoon of anonymity for the ones who want to be anon. i have written a lot in praise of this particular site, through the years and have made a lot of friends. Have been falling in love every time something good happens. I have learnt a little more about life, grown a wee bit wiser(?) and a wee bit more humane than I was. BUt if i were to set aside a single moment what would it be??? I wracked this small brain of mine, and it came out with lot of memories and moments.. So here is one such moment that should definitely define the influence of IL.. There is this person in my close circle, who had conflicting opinions about me, until she came across IL. and after a few months, during a conversation, she tells me, "I believe you are a very good person, because there are so many ilites out there who vouch for you and talk so high about you" Who said virtual world cannot forge friendships, opinions and reach out.!!!!!
