I received email last night from the Kid Brother. Email! His wonderful family, the staff at AHRC NYC, took him to buy a mobile phone and immediately set up an email account for him. He’s already taking pictures and sending them to me.
|FIFTH AVENUE AND 54TH STREET.
(MOMA IS ON 53RD BETWEEN FIFTH AND SIXTH.)
Yesterday afternoon, they went to MOMA (the Museum of Modern Art) where I’m told he really enjoyed himself. Along with a slightly blurry street scene, the Kid Brother also shared a couple of even blurrier photos of his favorite artworks, and a close-up of his own artistic creation inspired by his day at MOMA. Of course, I like his creation the best.
It was 2 a.m. when the messages came in, but I happened to be up and immediately sent him a quick (and simple) note. This morning, I sent him photos of the cats.

So, now not only can we speak on the phone every weekend (and, hopefully, one of these days on FaceTime), but I can also email a brief note and photo to him every day just to feel connected.
|NOW IF THEY COULD JUST GET HIM TO
SHOW SOME EXCITEMENT!!!
If the Kid Brother were to watch this video, he would say, “You’re a nut!!!”
