Time relentlessly flows on and changes everything in its path. As the years pass, those changes aren't sneaking up on me any more. I can see that my children are no longer children. Retirement is no longer in the far distant future. Occasionally it still amazes me how mature my longtime friends have become.
Many a computer has facilitated my internet journey over the last several years. Many a friend has shared a bulletin board, an IM address, tips on the operating system, and now are proficient on FB and Twitter. Together we manage to cope with whatever those winds of change throw at us.
