life goes on in cambridge, massachusetts, usa, earth -- grass grows, bananas rot, one runs out of tissues and cash. cats shed.
Huh- did you ever stop and think what a beautiful medium e-mail would be for love-letters? It's so ephemeral, no ink on paper, just electrons hidden deep inside a machine... and the words aren't just written on a screen- they actually glow.
