Oh my darling

 Steven takes a break

When I first started drawing from Skype
and screen capture photos from Skype images
I could not have imagined how vital Skype
would become to me.  Yes my Skype images
changed my art career, but in the past year
and a half, Skype has been one of the main
ways I get to see my sweet Steven.  His work
has meant he's had to be out of town a lot,
and Skype lets us see one another.  Every mood,
every daily joy, the animals on my end, and
all the sorrow of missing one another (which
we do to a painful extent sometimes) comes
through the computer when we're apart.

Here's a drawing of Steven taken from one
of the many photos I take of him while we talk.

Have a thanking-technology-for-being-there day.
