Reigniting Relationships

I have found the act of visiting Ushaw Moor and talking to old school mates a much easier process than doing it by the more sterile method of e-mail. A face to face meeting helps one to read the eyes and expression of the old mate; the level of their interest can be assessed and a way forward more easily decided. In contrast an e-mail is a medium that can bring misunderstandings and complete misreadings. I can give you an example of a probable misunderstanding; when replying to an old chum I typed something like – I will be glad to put you on my Christmas card list but you can sent me a card bi-annually if you  are hard up – crass writing that – he cannot have seen that it was an attempt at banter – not a judgement that he was very old, poor and perhaps miserly!
