The recent months of technology challenges is another chance to be
Grateful. When my printer went out weeks ago, I did not miss it much. My laptop of 3.5 years or so was different. It has not worked in months but I hoped it would makati ally turn on like it did before. The truth is it had been giving me signs for awhile, most recently with sticking keys and before that, the CD did not work. Then the Derecho storm knocked out power doe millions, along with DSL
Today is a writing day, a gift to myself and no DSL makes that easy. I am grateful to have time where technology has less impact on my life today. I was less calm when I realized what I could not do and what I could miss. Now I go e myself permission to have a day of
Writing and green smoothies.
I can be grateful that Derecho pushed me to seek an Internet provider that provides wifi with DSL and having wifi has made me face that buying a less expensive laptop would mean I can write when I am away from home and desktop. And the truth is that I do not often use the printer but look into both.
And thing this blog on my IPhone 4a is proof of something else I am leaning.
Today I opened the fridge and the
Last if the salad dressing spilled. I rarely use it but now that is not a problem. I cn learn to make my own. It is not hard.
Some people pay big money to go somewhere where they are totally disconnected. We have gotten to the point where we often can not imagine an hour without all our devices.
So I enter this day in gratitude.
