This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING … about a conversation I had with a computer technician who was working remotely on my computer. I believe he was in the Philippines. We had about ten minutes to chat while my computer reactivated. It was like he was next door. I enjoyed talking about his culture. He said most people speak more than one language. He shared he could speak five different languages. The Covid-19 situation there sounded similar what is going on with us. Of course, I didn’t miss a chance to invite him to read my blog.  So, tec. friend, if you’re reading this, tell your friends. I’d love to be world-wide.
