Technology can be a good thing, when it serves our needs. Technology often decides to serve its own, and then frustrate the heck out of its human masters.
This morning, technology worked well as we spoke- live, via internet– with some friends working in Southeast Asia. They have a travel agency there, and are recruiting Americans to go to his country for a visit. They have been somewhat successful, in that his location is beautiful, the people friendly. Another family from Tulsa has moved there to work for him in his business. It is a beautiful place!
They are fun people, beautiful inside and out. They love the native people of the island on which they live, and have been immersing themselves in the local culture. The food, the dialects of the language, the social life- all strange to westerners, but our friends have sacrificed lives of ease and luxury here in order to work there. And to bring a little Love to the people of the islands.
What have I sacrificed today?
