She's Back
Saturday, Mar. 27, 2004, 3:57 p.m.

QUESTION: Where has she been?

WHAT I LEARNED: Technology - can't live with it, can't live without it.

Iím back in business. My computer came home to me on Friday, March 26th, at 6:50 PM EST and I am feeling whole again. I know I said that maybe technology was the devil but that was a response to sudden digital deprivation. I think upon reflection that technology is simply one really cranky angel. Or maybe a mischevious one. Iím just glad to be in the circle of light again.

And let me tell you - it wasnít easy coping this week without my Diaryland pals, my electronic to do lists, and all the virtual resources that I need to manage my life these days. Like Eva Gabor in Green Acres still in her city clothes and thrust into the great heart of simple life, I found myself at a sudden lose. I was without recourse to the most basic of online conveniences - from the practicality of online banking to the joy and immediacy of personal expression presented through diaries, weblogs, and folologs. In the hours of being unplugged this past week, my delight in the electronic glow of digital life management, virtual friendship, 'lectric lifetime learning, and digital personal expression were all highlighted as painfully as a good climb up a telephone pole to take care of the basic business of modern living might do.

As Lisa Douglas (aka Eva Gabor) might say - Darlink I love you, but give me Park Avenue . . . .

Or at least give me my laptop and pay the bill on a digital connection.
