Evelyn: Sometimes a love note comes at just the right moment, after a long P3 weekend, full of compassion and giving, and ongoing energy. I had discovered that one of my text messages hadn't been delivered last week, and I sent it anyway... not expecting a reply. Yet, it felt good, just to connect quickly, and to have the love reciprocated - showing up as a caller on my phone (one of the features I have come to enjoy) - a brisk message acknowledging and loving me right back. It is a little love note, a thought of a hug, that slurps up the miles in my mind.

Monica:  Today was a day of drizzling rain, reading by the fire, and phone calls to family & friends. A day to get grounded and reconnected. I've noticed how in spite of the numerous and instantaneous media available for communication, I am less connected with loved ones than I was ten years ago. I haven't written a long, thoughtful letter in years. Frequent, brief e-mails have replaced occasional, hours-long phone calls. I got off the phone today feeling recharged by the sweet sounds of laughter, encouragement, plans being made, and thoughts shared.

  1. Monica called me, and Michael said it was time for her to get off the phone so she could talk to him. I said she did not have to end our call and that Michael did not have a phone, so she could not talk to him anyhow.
