Thanks to Angus Young for the guest post.
I was recently reunited with my fourteen year old daughter, who I haven’t seen for a dozen years. If it weren't for social networking sites on hughesnetI might never have found her, and I’m sure we wouldn’t communicate all that much. When you’re an estranged father you have to start somewhere, and when dealing with a teenager it’s best to start slow. Posting messages back and forth has provided me with a good way to take those first steps.
I think we are both coming to realize how alike we are by finding more about each other’s personalities. I’ll post a link to something I like and she’ll comment; or vice versa. The connection with hughes net petersburg is great. We may not have seen each other for over a decade, but at least I can get online and see her pictures. As we exchange email and messages we slowly begin to make up for our lost time.
My job keeps me city of the city most of the time and away from the hard wired comforts of modern society. There are still places without fiber optics; I am glad that there are things like satellite internet to keep us connected at those times.
When the day comes that we can actually meet we will have a good head start, which ought to make that first meeting a little less awkward. And eventually I will be able to post another picture online, with both of us standing together.
