our tools

The great danger we have as we become more intimately involved with our computers… is that we’ll begin to lose our humanness, to sacrifice the very qualities that separate us from machines.

still walking

I am on this journey. I don’t want to over-spritualize it or make it holier than it is. But I am on a journey. And I know you are too. These last few months have been filled with the realization that things are not so good. I am in a happy marriage with healthy children. But there is an increasing dissatisfaction in my soul with where the world is going. So general, I know… but are we gaining wisdom, patience, and love in today’s 21st century society? I’m not sure how much I want to talk about all this.

You may get a mouthful or a continuing diatribe… I’m just going to try to work out some of these things here…

so I can remember…

so I can be reminded…

and I’m sure there will be the intermittent revelation of more personal family stories and photos.

If you are still out there…

I am still here…
