Losing Touch

How do you maintain a long distance relationship? I mean the short-distance ones are hard. I want to somehow help someone who's going through a really hard time but at the same time, I don't want to be a pain in the arse. And the line between the two is so damn thin.

I wish there was a honkin' big book, with directions. "When your LDF is feeling blue, the best thing to do is send an e-card!" Not everyone likes those. Some think they're a pain in the butt. Other people think they're the greatest.

Is this really a friendship? Sometimes friendships through the internet seem to be like the biblical parable of the seeds sown on stony ground. They spring up fast, but they don't stay. They don't survive. And yet I can't say that face to face friendships have done all that well. I don't know. Maybe I don't know how to maintain them.

I feel lucky to have so many friends in TEUNC. I don't always feel that I make that deep connection with all of them but I always learn something. I come away with things that I didn't have before.

Anyway..my friend, I'm thinking about you. Take care of yourself today. I worry about you.
