The joy of technology

At this moment I am sitting outside. On a bench. Under the shade of a tree. Feeling the breeze and sunshine. While I write this on my iPad, my iPhone sits next to me. Why is this so exciting? Because I am at work. Outside of my office. If anyone needs me they can reach me. Although they don't know where I am, they know how to find me. I can sit outside enjoying the day and still be productive. I have to admit that technology intimidates me. I don't pretend to know much about it, but I do know that it has it's advantages. Like earlier, when I was having a mid-morning slump, my iPhone alerts me to a message. It was the sweetest picture of Maddan painting out in the sunshine. Ms. Bon thought that I would enjoy the experience (and boy, was she right!) so she took a picture and shared it with me. Although there are numerous concerns regarding technology, for me, today, it has brought me nothing but joy!

  1. so sweet! what a nice sentiment--I have to admit, more often than not, I am hostile in my thoughts about technology, but you are so right--there are many joys to be had because of easy accessibility, too!!
