Dependence on Computers

Yutang Lin

As personal computer broke down all matters came to a halt.
All informations and instant communications suddenly ceased.
The perpetual adventures in cyberspace got temporary wake.
When will the illusive nature of evanescent life be recognized?


Frank, my second son, upon the delivery of his computer to a store for repair sighed and said, "All my works are in the computer and could not be continued, and all my perpetual instant communications with all my friends suddenly ceased; see how dependent I was on the computer!"

Daily we are besieged by sundry entanglements of worldly affairs of this evanescent life; do we have to wait till our final departure from them to become awakened?
