Right now, the 16 year old is here with me and I am glad. So far during his teen years he has had a number of the same friends but then was forced to move to Germany. There he has been surrounded by most of the same relatives – and extra relatives he knew from visiting this very town for ten years prior to moving here. Thanks to the power of the Internet, he has been able to continue to play and exchange at least some messages with at least some of his American friends from the huge portion of his childhood – 10 years, that he spent living in Indianapolis. The other aspect of this is that it makes it so that he can at least sort of both be with and play with others at the same time.
