One of the fun aspects of the Internet, is that we can make instant connections with people, not just down the street, but across the state, the country, the ocean.
I can chat with my cousins in California or Oklahoma, or trade quips with a friend in Indianapolis… across four time zones. It can be 4 o’clock in the afternoon where I am, and at the same time, I can have a conversation with someone at 7 in the morning in Japan.
It’s what the idea of time travel must have been like back before the advent of the world wide web. For a SciFi fan, it’s the stuff of dreams.
If only we could go back through time. Not just hours… but days, weeks, years.
To have a chance to have one last talk with my Grandmother, or tell my aunt how much I miss her. Friends and family gone too soon, with too much left unsaid.
There aren’t years, or days, or hours to be reclaimed. I only have now to say all those things I need to say, before it’s too late.
I’m grateful for:
- Still having time to say the things I need to say
- Family and friends all across the world
- Science Fiction
- My laptop and WiFi
