Today Ryan sent a gmail chat message about working with me on this blog. “This is my highest priority today, Dad.”
Having my son Ryan, the webmaster, help me today was very reassuring. We both love to work online, and we are both “doing what we are” in this environment, this internet work mode. We worked online, back and forth, throughout the day, coming and going as needed. Ryan lives about 110 miles from here, but today it doesn’t make any difference in doing this kind of work.
As we put some features in place by afternoon, Ryan messaged me to say, “Let’s get you writing now, Dad. Some of your kids want to see the blog.”
What you see now is a blend between Ryan’s hosting and consulting, and my preferences for features. It’s cool to know that we can change things as needed, quickly and easily. Wouldn’t it be great if we could change our minds, hearts, and habits — and our illnesses — as easily as we can change the features of a blog? High Tech is easier than High Touch. Always has been, always will be.
Today I appreciated more than ever, the combination of Ryan’s gentle personality and technical skills — his own Tech-Touch — which we’ve observed all his life.
