If not for email, I donít know how Iíd keep up with some of my closest friends, even those who are only one time zone away. Like so many other people, this asymmetric form of conversation has replaced regular phone calls as our schedules arenít in synch. I am not sure I like this, and it does seem to be more of a recent development Ė I donít remember this little real conversation even when Helene was in England. And yet, we are keeping up with the big stuff, even if the daily ebb and flow goes unremarked on both sides.
