This morning I was speaking to you on messenger in Norway and my sister on the phone who just woke up in Hawaii. I had to pause for a moment and allow my brain to take in the distances I was communicating to all at once. Twelve different time zones to two people dear to my heart. The very idea excited me briefly because I imagined my great grandparents and if they ever imagined that such tools would be at our fingertips, available with the click of a button.
While I imagine this probably sounds super cheesy to the average reader, I hope to never change. I always want to be the person who gets excited about such things. I think the minute you stop getting excited about the little joys of your life, that is when everything starts to lose meaning.
