Who wants to help me help LDR couples? Anyone who is now or was once involved in an LDR can me update the technology section of my modest little book The Long Distance Relationship Guidebook. Right now, I'm in the process of gathering data to update that section and others, and I would really appreciate any ideas you might have have about personalizing technological communication in an LDR.

Hi Travis, thanks for sharing your blog. It's always interesting to read and see how couples make it despite all odds. :) Sylvia
Hi Brandon, thanks for sending me a link to your awesome Kickstarter project. I just posted the link to my FB page, and I plan to post an article about your project here on Typepad later today. :)
Thanks so much for your thoughtful comments. Helping to make the whole operation go smoothly instead of fighting against something as special as a precious relationship is the key to success. :)

This inspiring and creative film clip of a man's wedding proposal to his long distance girlfriend (lucky girl!) was created by David Pogue (New York Times technology columnist, Missing Manual publisher, and Emmy-winning CBS news correspondent). 7 minutes and worth every minute of it.

Thanks. I find her voice to be simply amazing. Maybe Joni Mitchell aspired to her sound? It was Sandy Denny's voice that Led Zeppelin recorded on their song Battle of Evermore (the *only* female singer they ever used for recording). Thanks for the heads up about Deanna Kirk. I'll check out her version.
I love this song, too. This might sound sappy, but I favorited David Archuleta's version of it on YouTube b/c I think his version is so heartfelt.
