courtesy of a stranger

in the mail today i received this lovely gift courtesy of one kind beautiful human being. this was given to me out of a random act of generosity and thoughtfulness. the wonderful person who gave me this gift started out as a stranger, we followed each other online via twitter. i think many of you will be able to relate to the fact that when you follow someone on twitter or instagram and any other site over a long period, you see their pictures, read their thoughts and feelings, you learn what they love, what they hate, who they hate, who inspires them and you begin to understand them, you sympathise with their life then gradually from a distance, you become friends, well, online friends. i guess what i'm trying to say is that it's so heartwarming and almost overwhelming that a stranger in the physical world can become a real friend and surprise you with such an act of generosity that, sadly to say, very seldom occurs in the present day. so thank you friend/tweeter/follower for making me believe that there is kindness among strangers.
