Somewhere down there EGA is cavorting with pandas and monkeys, like a character in a children's book. Her internet silence over the past week has made me think about how spoiled the 21st century has made us. When I was a student I like to think that I was a pretty fair correspondent, but weblogs and email and IM has made keeping up much easier, and far more immediate. I miss hearing from her, and the mental picture of her in Pandaland (wearing, for no good reason, one of those broad-rimmed conical hats that people in China wear in children's books) is small solace.
