  Other Mornings

So Below

Oh what a trial computers are, yet we cannot live without them. Their bits, bytes, drivers, apps, to most, as magical as a unicorn. Like people, get filled with junk, catch viruses like an alien BEM.

Soon Remember

~~~~~ Soon, we will return home, again, With nothing but time to spend. We dream of places to roam, then Watch the tube, read a book, pretend.
