I can remember the very first email I sent. It was to a pen friend in London. We had been handwriting letters to each other for years. I would write, post the letter to the UK and it would take about a week to get there. Then my friend would reply and the same amount of time lapsed on the journey to me. I looked forward to seeing the airmail letter and the stamps, and I would take care with my reply. Then we got a computer, the internet and I was ready to send my first email to her. I carefully crafted my letter, checked it over and hit Send with a big sigh. I turned to my husband who had coached me through the process and asked, “When will it arrive?” He said, “It’s there already”. And my mind was blown. So much has happened since then.
