What is distance?

The dictionary offers a few clues in the first two definitions
  /ˈdɪstəns/ [dis-tuhns] noun, verb, -tanced, -tanc⋅ing.
1. the extent or amount of space between two things, points, lines, etc.
2. the state or fact of being apart in space, as of one thing from another; remoteness.

Actually, when applied to two people those definitions do clash sometimes. Its very much possible to be close to someone an ocean away. Its so much more easier 'these days' with our 24x7 net access and cheap ISD rates. The days of my grandparents' might well have been Good Old Days, but I am glad to be where I am, when I am.
