09:12 am: Home Again, Home Again, Jiggily Jig!
The plane ride was uneventful. A quiet ride to Tokyo, I spent the whole ride reading Science and Health (by Mary Baker Eddy) which I normally only read in times of stress--otherwise, I tend to read the Sentinel when I pray --but this time, I just felt like reading it. I prayed quietly for everyone I knew, one at a time. It was nice.

In Tokyo, I realized that arriving home with lots of cute toys for Ping-Ping and none for Juss (there were presents, but no toys) was a BAD idea. I found a duty free store that sold stuff in dollars. I bought a Totoro, a Jiji the cat, and a Cat Bus for the boys. This was a GREAT decision. I am so glad I did. The boys love them.

Watched movies on the plane. Hardly slept. Want to sleep again now. Konk ffeewwww...........

Er...sorry. Should not sleep at the consol here.

Okay...I have a few concluding thoughts, but I will type them up after I wake again.

Speaking of Science and Health, the weekly marking-it-up was perhaps one of my first introductions to hypertext, during the years in my early adolescence when my father was dating a Christian Scientist.

I remember those spring-based contraptions that one slipped into the books, with the metal index tabs one inserted for each passage. What a way to torture a book's binding!

That was 40 years ago.

So have CS members moved beyond that? Perhaps with web-based copies or apps on their computers?

Or maybe just those pointers that use post-it note glue?

Yes and no. Many people still use markers. I stopped using mine years ago because my boys, when they were little, pulled them out.

But you can also get printed Full Text versions...like a little magazine, and there are online versions, too. ;-)
