Creativity and Invention

One of my favorites: Ole Evinrude got angry when the ice cream in his rowboat melted before he got to his island picnic spot - so he invented the outboard motor. from Karl Vesper

We make endless choices and decisions. Some are mindful, some - not so much. Challenges evolve, spiral but always come back to the same place, hopefully at a higher level.

Computer love

Interesting how a relationship can develop between human beings and objects. People develop affection for homes, cars, chairs, blankets, old transistor radios and the like. I have some of those same affections but I never, ever, in a million years thought I could "bond" with a laptop computer. But here I am happily tapping away feeling back at home in the world wide web. It just wasn't the same trying to write, create and develop on a series of "stand-ins" without my personal laptop. I am weirdly content.
