It's been a month and a day now since I wrote an entry about how I tried to contact an old penfriend via facebook. To make a long story short, she was the Julia I was looking for, she didn't reply to my message, and has since closed her profile from public viewing. I hope I didn't scare her or made her feel harassed. But it didn't work out the way I had imagined.

Now to make a short story long, today I got a message via facebook. It was from Julia - not the one I wrote to, but the real one. She is married now and has a different name, and she doesn't live either in New York or Washingston where I could place her, but in Massachusetts, so I had only little chance of finding her myself, but luckily I never changed my name, and it's an uncommon one, too, I believe I'm the only one there is, and if any old friend tries to locate me via the internet, it's quite an easy job that can well be done without facebook…

But that's not the point here. The point is, I'm online since 1998. Julia and me haven't had contact since about 1993. There would haven been plenty of time for one of us trying to get in touch - and still, my try and her try happened within one month of each other, without any cause except for me suddenly feeling a longing for my old friend - isn't that the strangest thing on earth? Or at least the strangest that has ever happened to me?

I gave her my mail address. I hope she'll write again. I'm so happy. And I found myself looking for that big old box of stationery I still have left from my old letter writing times. I feel this just might be to precious for plain e-mail. Something that deserves a stamp, and lots of love. This is the most special day since this year began, and I will cherish it.
