I'm thinking of you, wondering if you got there safely, were people polite? Was there food? And did you have a nice enough time? I begin to compose a text message, “Pssst, how are things?” But that is not the proper question to ask nowadays, and it would belie what I really want to know, which is, if you are okay, if your heart is peaceful. I want to know a lot, but I’m afraid that if I ask these questions too much, too often, you will turn away. Why is it so difficult to express the simplest things?
