I talked to my Dad on Facebook chat last night, Sabine on the phone, and my brother left a quick note on my Facebook wall. All in all, it was a pretty rare set of people contacting me. I don’t hear from my Dad often, not that I have made much effort to keep in touch with him, and the same goes for my brother.
I don’t know why I’m so poor at communicating with my family. You’d think someone that was a writer for around five years would have an easy time at least writing letters, e-mails and other written communication methods to keep in touch, but for some reason that’s not how things work out.
It was definitely nice to hear from them all, and I’d love to visit with them, but it is hard because I live so far from even my closest relatives.
