From a very tight knit family and living quite a distance away from home. I often feel a pang of homesickness. However speaking to them on skype bridges that gap. I find it interesting how the pixelated web-cam image of my family makes the distance dissolve. The postcards are a statement about the change in communication from the written, to the spoken to the audio visual. 'Sorry there is bad traffic' and 'I wish I could say I love you...in person.' shows the limits of technology.
