Since I last blogged I exchanged my "notebook" sized laptop for my current mid size light weight one. One of the benefits is that I can actually SEE THE PRINT on this one. I think I finally found the right one. It's amazing how connected our laptops keep us, to the machine itself, and also to each other. How did we ever get along without portable phones and the internet????? Isn't it amazing how fast we adapt to the latest appliance or machine that we didn't even know existed 10 years ago? And now we think we can't live without them? I remember giving myself a "self-talk" after my old laptop bit the dust ..It went something like this.... " Don't worry, it's okay. You can live without it. It's not forever," and "It's only a machine." So now there's a new machine in town, and the old one is ready for the dust heap.
which goes to show, it's not the machine, it's what you can do with it, the service it provides, and in the end how it connects us with other living humans.
So I'm finding my way back through Spark, and getting connected again. I even lost a few pounds while I was out of touch. So glad to be back.
