    How prophetic! I just tried unsuccessfully to email you, and Alice B was mentioned in my message. To express my frequent frustration with mistimed electronic communications and general glitches, I had earlier penned this poetic lament (which recalls Alice's poem, “Christmas comes but once a year”):

    Impersonal communications NOT for me!

    Not until you hear my voice
    May you infer my values, my intent.

    They are not to be known
    Through broadcast internet.

    I am to you, what I cannot be
    To anyone else.

    For our communication is a whispering of Souls,
    Unique and quite ephemeral in time.
