Today I spoke with an old friend who moved off of Staten Island over twenty years ago. I thought I had lost touch but found an old classmate on classmates. com who knew her and gave me her phone number. It was so wonderful to speak with her. The internet is a marvel; I am so gratified to be able to use it this way. People complain that it replaces old-fashioned letter writing, adds to illiteracy, etc. but I say it builds a community of like spirits.
