Some days I feel really smug about the things I've learned about my computer these last few years. While I'm not as computer friendly as many, at least now I can find my way around and do some other things I would never have dreamed I'd be doing six years ago (pre-Taos Sunflower). Then, just when I'm patting myself on the back for all that I've learned, I remember the down side: it's eating up my days...big time.
Now I know I'm not the only person who has noticed this. I remember those long, technology free days, weaving, spinning, hiking. Most of all, I remember writing letters by hand, often hundreds a year. I miss that terribly. I remember when the last of my friends who would hand write letters with me caved in and I would write and she'd respond by e-mail. Somehow it just took the fun out of it.
This little video came my way a few days ago, and I thought I'd share it. I think it's a great illustration of what I'm mumbling about here.
