the future.

This past weekend, I reconnected with a high school friend who now lives in Sweden with his wife. An hour and a half later on Skype, we had caught up on our lives and – wahoo! - I had scored an invitation to visit them in Sweden. One of the glorious aspects of the call was Skype itself.  It was the first time I had used Skype, and while the use of this technology may be old news for some of you, I am hooked! True, there was a bit of what I will call, “vanity anxiety” as we all “prepped” for the visual phone call, but I have to believe a deeper reconnection was made because we were able to see each other face to face. I can't wait to use this for our jewelry business when I talk with our sales managers in Boston, London, and San Juan.

As a kid that grew up with comic strip images of a Dick Tracy watch or a Tomorrowland ride at Disneyland, I had incredible ideas of what the future would be like.  It all seemed so distant and fantastical and It is amazing to know that the future is indeed, now.
