    I know I'm online a lot ... how about you?

    What do you do less of now ... because that time is spent online?

    I rarely watch television anymore and don't read (for pleasure) much either.

    I don't even miss television ...

    :heart:

    I "useta" :) spend a lot of time online at various websites in the past, and until I surfed upon Destee.com my time online was very minute'. When I was online more, the one thing that "suffered or I did less of" was reading.

    My computer has always been more than a hobby, I use it extensively in my work, so I'm always on it, but surfing and being online has been reduced drastically. If I wasn't involved with this one website www.kenyada.com (Glenn over there) ... and hadn't found you...I would probably only check my email and surf only occassionally.

    :wave: Haaaaaaaaaaay ZeroGravity :wave:

    I'm so glad you found us, joined and particpate! :love:

    As you know, our forum is overwhelmingly made up of poets and poetry ... so it's really nice when folk come and participate in the discussions.

    I visited www.kenyada.com and signed their guestbook too! Such an inspiring, encouraging and much needed effort they are doing over there.

    Like you, my computer is used extensively in my work and I'm online most of the time. Even if I'm not actively surfing, working, etc., I'm "on."

    Thanks ZeroGravity for sharing the site and your thoughts on this topic.

    :heart:

    It depends what else I have going on in my life. Lately I have been spending less time online. Doesn't mean I'm spending more money, or getting into things that I shouldn't. I love being online, but I don't like feeling that I am addicted to the net. Not a good feeling when the computer crashes or something similiar happens. Interesting topic.

    Being on line is like eating at a smorgasbord. The meal is unlimited and it never seems to run out. I am always reading something. Looking up something. I didn't get started on the net ( at work it was 1997 ) ( at home ) until 2000. So I have a few years. What I found was the same old thing on sites I visited like BET, and another black owned site I joined for a while. Mad writings. Hate speech. Threats of bodily harm in text. Talk of sex, and rumors of sex. ( You know what they say about those who talk about it must not be doing much about it )

    When I first got introduced to Destee.. and I miss my sponsor.. she was too much for the place. She would kick the doors open screaming revolution now!

    But she told me about this great place she found, where life was different and hope abounded. Even her hard shell cracked for the chance to experience something different. Sword always in hand. I witnessed her battling for black american justice, respect to be without prejudice and all harrassment. She was a changer, A true warrior. I think she didn't know when to put down her sword, and realize she had arrived in an oasis of change. I miss her, she is a fighter like me. I admired that about her.

    I have never written so much. So I think being on line has opened up to me all kinds of aspirations. This year I have commited to writing a book. One on my own and one with the poets of Destee. Being on line I have confirmed the world is still twisted, and I get a first hand view of the madness we face.

    " a lot " does not do justice to the amount of time I spend online.
