I believe there to be something rather magical about Skype. Despite the vagaries of flaky internet connection, clunky video and annoying fraction of second audio delay, the sheer joy of having a 'face to face' conversation with a distant loved one is one of the wonders of the modern age. To see their happy, smiling face, to watch them laugh, to get a blurry look at the new plant they've bought, or even just to recognise the outfit they're wearing is such a reassuring and heartwarming thing. Thank you Skype wizardy people!
