Before I got my first computer, I had no idea of the wonderful myriad uses it could have. Since then, I have gone from strength to strength on a voyage of discovery that is never ending. My primary use for my computer used to be playing games, whether on line cribbage or my strategy war games. Now I have a different use for it every day and that is the joy it has given me. I have discovered several sites that let me download whole works of classical poetry and prose, in PDF. and I can read these more easily from my computer screen than from a printed book. I can view and admire photographs and art work from all over the world. I can delve into archives that would have remained hidden from me and study any subject that takes my fancy. Today I perused a site that advertised holidays in cave hotels. Who knew of such things? Last week I looked at properties for sale in Dordogne. Every museum I have been unable to visit in the flesh, I can see through the eyes of my monitor. I have made new friends that I would never have a chance to meet and been welcomed into their lives. I even chose Wendell on line. The reason I have come to think of these things is my younger sister’s reluctance to purchase a computer. I explained to her all the above, plus the ease of communication a computer offers. I have half persuaded her. We shall see.
