Instant Communication

Constantly fascinated by this thing that is the internet. Instant communication anywhere on the globe as long as you have a computer and a connection. Absolutely amazing.

I have at least one reader in the Philippines- I think that's dreadfully cool. I lived in Seoul, S. Korea for a couple of years in high school and had a teacher who once took a vacation there with his wife. He brought back glass fishing net floats for all his AP chemistry students, so I have a piece of the Philippines here in my house. Also had a couple of friends, a DoDDs teacher and a student, who moved to Yongsan Army Garrison in Seoul after they were evacuated from a military base in the Philippines because of the Mt. Pinatubo eruption.

Have noticed readers in Kenya (I think I know who that is, as I do know one family there- hope you all are safe and well), South Africa, various places in Europe and Asia, and of course readers right here in the states.

So where are you? Do I know you? Why do you read what you read?

Thanks for saying hi, T. Glad you enjoyed the poem. Wow. "Entranced". THAT is a fabulous word, and I'll take it. ;-)

I hope others will say hi. I'm very curious about who reads what, and why.

Many years to you,
