Question asked by Katie:

Do you get to speak with your family back home in Massachusetts at all? If so, how often?



Dear Katie,


Yes, I speak with my mother every week by satellite telephone. It's sometimes difficult to hear on this connection, and sometimes words are lost, but it is amazing that it works at all, and so I'm thankful for it. I speak as well with my sisters and other friends. It makes me feel that I'm not alone out here when people say that they're following the race and are interested.
