I just received a wonderful gift that made me smile. It wasn't wrapped, it didn't have a bow on it, and it wasn't delivered under a tree. It did have a "To" and "From" tag, though, because it was delivered via my phone.
I'm a very lucky man.
The advent of the cellphone is sometimes a blessing and sometimes a curse. Normally I look at it as something of a bother, but today it has redeemed itself. I wrote earlier this morning that I had received a wonderful gift via my cellphone... Well, it didn't end there.
I just got more good news this afternoon via my cell. After almost a week of silence there was suddenly a burst of activity, like a cascade of dominos or an avalanche. First there was one call, then a second, then a third. While this adversely impacts my plans for the rest of the week (I'll be going home early) I'm happy. This is very good.
The gears continue to turn, unstoppable now that they've been put into motion. It's awesome to watch, and leaves me eager for the future.
