Specifically mine. With the exception of my drug addict-like reaction to an unread book in the house, all my current addictions are computer related. I have found a way to finally feel like an artist, and I am reveling in that freedom and fun.
My brother wrote a blog entry a while back about our family's early entry into the computer world. We grew up in Silicon Valley, the birthplace of the computer. Our father studied computers in college before they really existed. We had at least one home computer as soon as they were available, and one specifically for "the kids" by the time I was in Jr. High. We went to the same high school that the founders of Apple Computers had, so our school district was well equipped very early on.
The internet system started emerging by the time I was in college (at least that's when I became aware of it). I remember "chatting" over the Gopher system that connected universities. It was such a thrill to feel that connection!
Now, of course, some of my best friends are ones that I have never truly met. (Not yet!) I log on as I walk through the house turning on lights, getting coffee started, and well before I can really be considered awake. There are several digital scrapbooking sites, blogs, and other art related sites that I visit daily; and I frankly think that I would go into convulsions if I couldn't.
It is so amazing how the world is changing and shrinking. Of course, it makes vacation plans a lot harder to make. I want to go visit my friends all over America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa! Where to go first?
Oh, and the mouse count is up to ten!
