Nothing to write about? That’s so often the first thought, and yet I’ve come to believe that if you look, there are interesting messages all around you. Some of them you’ve left for yourself. Some of them turn up unexpectedly. Some are left by other people using the language to create. Meaning lurks! Here’s what I found. I’d love to hear what you find.
Notes from my Keyboard
I look down. “Zoom,” my computer keyboard says. And I imagine taking off, my arms as wings, and I soar into the bluest of skies.
My keyboard gives me many commands.
Redo! I am pleased to hear this. Whew. I don’t have to get things right the first time.
Save! I believe this is the moral thing to do. I consider saving whales, plastic bottles, and starving children. So far, I think I’m okay on the bottles.
Help! Perhaps if I hit this button, answers will come. How do I find meaning in life? What are the right choices? Where are the limits?
Control! I take this as a command to butch up. Stop whining! You’re the one whose fingers are laying this line of type. It’s up to me to help and save, even if I have to redo.
Then perhaps I can zoom.
