Here we are in sunny St Paul, Minnesota enjoying the hospitality of our many relatives in this area.    I’m becoming something of a Flickr, blog, etc evangelist realizing how many great pictures, stories, and pieces of important family information do not get properly distributed.

There is a really interesting human challenge related to proximity – when you are physically close to people you very actively (and I think correctly) think of good ways to keep in touch and build connections.  As the physical distance increases those ideas are forgotten or re-prioritized leaving us in the normal state of not knowing enough about the people we care about the most.     Silly humans.   Evolution did not anticipate living 2000 miles from your close relatives.
