Everyone hears what you say, friends listen to what you say, best friends listen to what you don't say.

Distance is an odd thing today. We're all so connected. A person is hundreds of miles away, and I feel that I speak with them always. We send gifts through facebook, leave pictures and comments for observation, speak on the phone, text while not speaking and even sometimes write. It can saturate you and become overdone. It can make you forget what it is like to have a person here, in front of you, within reach. We take distance for granted. I am afraid of being saturated, but more afraid of not having the time or energy for any conversation. Next week the rat race begins. Wish me luck.
