My Grandfather is not always particularly lucid. However, when he knows where he is, he is very proud of me for moving to Iceland for graduate studies. My mom just sent me these wonderful photos of Grandpa Bob taking advantage of a mentally sharp moment to write me a letter. Living abroad (or even far away) is so different in today’s world of technology than it was when my dad studied in England and Egypt. Then, he probably heard from his parents by letter every few months. Today, my mom sent me these pictures instantly after we video chatted. Another way to think about it: I received a picture of the letter being written about two weeks before the letter will arrive.
