Disappearances

All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else. ~ Buddha

Perhaps you have wondered where I disappeared to since my grand announcement last week. No, I didn't pass out in a dead faint for a whole week! Either way, I'm back and fully ready to get back into blogging. It's 346AM right now, and I've finally managed to wade through a week's worth of backposts and the 186 unread messages in my inbox that I've missed.

My administrator's computer....not mine, went on the freeze on last week Monday and we just got it fixed today. Yeah, I really did go into internet withdrawal, and it was quite ghastly! I was in my room, on my bed, staring at the walls trying not to go stir crazy. I reread about 7 books, wrote in my real journal (which i haven't done in forever!), rearranged my bookshelves, alphabetized my CDs and talked on the phone alot. I called my best friend several times and had her go into my email, just so I could have some form of digitized contact. I'm addicted!!!

By 2009, computers will disappear. Displays will be written directly onto our retinas by devices in our eyeglasses and contact lenses. Ray Kurzweil

I highly doubt that is going to happen Ray. At least not by 2009. Maybe 2019 though. Until then, I'm hooked unto my computer like white on rice.

This post gave me a good giggle Miss Cold Turkey. I don't know what I would do if I'd didn't have internet access. Keel over probably! It's good that you did other stuff but I for one missed you big time {hug}
