There are billions upon billions of places in our world. Some of these places have horrible, negative connotations, such as the concentration camp Auschwitz in Germany where countless atrocities were committed, or the Wounded Knee Creek in South Dakota where hundreds of innocent Native Americans were slaughter in December 1890. But where there is evil and hate there is always good. We see this in wonderful places such as churches where people worship and better themselves through faith, or perhaps hospitals, where life itself begins for infant babies and where the lives of parents are changed forever, where people are cured and helped.

For me, that place is the exact place I am sitting at this moment, the semi-circular table, surrounded by long legged wooden kitchen chairs and cluttered by a small TV, a video deck, randomized mini DV tapes and DVD’s, pens and papers, and various sound recording equipment, but most importantly a 2008 edition iMac computer. All located in a wide-open flowing room in the tin roofed country house that I live in. This place is so much more to me than simply a computer for checking e-mails and watching humorous YouTube videos on. Granted I do, do a lot of time wasting and goofing of on it, it represents and is in a way who I am as a person. If you are thinking I am a sad little kid who wastes hours upon hours a day playing computer games or surfing the internet for only God knows…
