A postcard from afar

About a week ago, my friend who is filming in South Africa took an amazing picture, and posted it on social media. I wrote, "I want that printed!" and she wrote, "It's on the way!" I smiled, thinking she was obviously joking. After all, I don't expect her to be mailing me packages from South Africa.

Yet, yesterday, there it was.

A photo that my friend took halfway around the world is now in my home. Technology can be a great source of frustration, but - yesterday, it made me feel just a bit more connected.
