Computer Dependency

This afternoon I suddenly found my desktop unable to get online. I was at a loss. Fortunately I have hooked up my laptop and can make do. However it surely made me aware of how dependent I am on the cybersphere for contact, communication, a feeling of wholeness. I cannot think of anything this critical or central, aside from grace itself, that was a comparable part of my pre-computer life. Perhaps, newspapers were something like this - and are still essential to me. So I am hooked or liberated. And I think its mostly the latter.
