Hi, Laegwen! Welcome to the site!!
I share these feelings though perhaps in a different way. I find that it's really easy for me (and others) to become obsessed with cookie art, almost to the point that every small thing seems to trigger a cookie discussion. Also, it's very easy to be sucked into looking at cookie photos and talking cookie all day online. So I yearn sometimes for the days when we were less connected online, and when conversations were with real, live people about varied topics that went way beyond cookies.
Don't get me wrong, I love the online world and cookies (or I wouldn't have started this site), but there is always a need for balance. What I am seeking these days are more real-life non-cookie conversations.
