Look Ma, No Wires!

March 23, 2004

[PowerBook G4]So I’m sitting outside right now, typing on our brand-new 15″ PowerBook. Nothing is plugged in! We have a little wireless network thanks to an AirPort Base Station, and the freedom is thrilling. I thought it would be mainly Kay who enjoyed this machine because she doesn’t like being tied to a desk. But I have to say it is fun to be able to move around the house and even outdoors — to move to where other people are, or away from them. The wireless aspect is still a little spooky.
I’ve been recording one of my songs. On Sunday, I was able to copy it from the iMac to the PowerBook, take it with me when I drove Erin to the piano teacher’s house, and continue to edit the song while waiting for Erin.
I like it.
The sun is going down and the air is becoming cool, so I’m going to head back inside now.

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
