And yet, these two aging ladies decided, out of the clear blue sky it would seem, that a computer might add something good to their lives, and so they bought one.
Now Shawn's mother sends me three 80pt font emails every day. She tells me what the sunrise felt like when she sat on the porch that morning and what sounds were emanating from the bird's nest in their yard. She tells me how beautiful life is. She uses apostraphes on every word that ends in "s". She sends me love and asks me to hug her son for her.
The other day she phoned Shawn to ask him which key on her keyboard was the "action key".
So the computer did bring something good to their lives, and to ours. Surprise.
