Hello, Harriett

“Hello Harriett”, transmitted the Doctor.

“Hello Doctor”, Harriett responded immediately.

“How do you like my new camera”?

“Well I hardly noticed it. What’s so new about it”?

“For one thing it has infrared light and I can see you at night. I can see you right now”.

“Nice, you are getting to be quite the technology wizard, aren’t you”?

“To tell you the truth, this IT technology has given me a lot of frustration lately”.

There was a brief pause in their transmissions, as if the Doctor was having trouble remembering the code links. Then the Doctor continued,

“Harriett, with all due respect, I see you have been spending a lot of time alone. What is Ozzie up to”?

“Ozzie is doing fine”. Can’t you see all the good stuff he has brought to the nest”?

“Oh, yeah. I see it. The nest is looking good”.

“Thank you Doctor”, Harriett responded without trying to hide the pride in her telepathy.

“I’m glad you all didn’t bring in a lot of junk this year”.

“Oh, no”, said Harriett. “From now on I insist on sticks, twigs, grass and moss only”.

“Can’t blame you”, said the doctor.

There was another pause in the transmissions. Then Harriett relayed,

“Ozzie will be back soon, so I must bid you goodnight”.

“OK, thanks Harriett. It’s good telepathizing with you”.

“Ditto”, said Harriett.

The connection weakened and faded away slowly. A wonderful sense of wholeness and purpose enveloped the Doctor. He thought he might have heard,

“Good night. I love you”.
