My friend Sherita has been battling health problems since winter and it has severely impacted her ability to live independently, to live like a nomad, to live like the strong woman she is. It’s the type of thing that makes me sad, especially when I’m in no position to be there and help, to wave a magic wand, or to at least give a hug.
Technology can bridge the gap, though. We talked this evening via Facebook Messenger. Voices can convey so much more than text. It was comforting, soothing for both of us.
