I go on Skype at random times during the day or if I wake up in the middle of the night -- hoping on the off-chance for a little green light by the right name. Not to hit call, because we've forbidden ourselves -- simply because I hoped that the green light would be on by his name and I can watch the light for a while, knowing that he is there on the other end, knowing that he knows it too. This is the contemporary way of setting a little lamp or candle in a tower window for the watcher; it is enough to know he lives.
