It’s been one month since I came back home after many years of brief visits during the winter holidays. Cleaning my hard drive, I came to a realization that mentally I never left, because of Skype. My little family takes a very special place in my values system. Like every family, we can be slightly dysfunctional, but it doesn’t mean that we don’t miss each other. It will be time to travel away again soon, but any distance feels less separating, thanks to technology.
