Email Apparitions

Email has been a great source of amazing connections for me. Just yesterday I was contacted by 2 people I haven't been in touch with for a long time. This happens regularly and is a great gift. Sometimes people find my address on some web site that they are surfing; sometimes they find it by searching. I am making a really effort to find the address of anyone who crosses my mind from years gone by. I think they really exemplifies Teilhard de Chardin's concept of a noosphere, a great web of connectivity that surrounds the earth. But Teilhard could not imagined Google.
