Quick Visit

Saturday afternoon, we picked Sam up at the airport, and Sunday morning, he was off on a road trip to visit Ali in New Orleans. It was great to see him for a few hours.

I'm thrilled that we are in this technological age - that all of us in this family have laptops and wireless connections. We have IM, email, and Facebook. We have free long distance on our cell phones. These days, being apart sometimes seems the same as having them home, only with lower grocery costs.

But nothing technological can take the place of clowning in a silly hat, or the fragrances of Robin teaching Sam how to make Chicken Marsala. Digital magic can't match a dinner table conversation about nothing in particular.

Amen! Mom, in Canada, & I, here in the midwest, email back & forth on a daily basis. And I've started calling regularly on Sundays. But it really doesn't compare with being there in person. It does help with the homesickness though.
