Looking at my computer screen for
‘Unfinished writings’
I found this
“Added customer . . .
Press backspace to remove”
And I envisioned a harried store clerk
Or a call-in service person
Smiling and pressing a key
And the irritating customer
And on the same ‘page’:
“Skip to content”
Which could refer to meeting a new person
All bright and shiny
And full of promises
And do I want to take the trouble
To befriend them?
Or, does it refer to my search
Through religious and philosophical tenets
Looking for happiness
Instead of following all the offered paths,
I could just skip to content (accent on second syllable)
OR skip to content (accent on first)
Just look for compassion
(For All life)

And  below that was “Using Gmail with screen readers”
Does this mean that Uncle Sam is standing behind me
And reading all my email?
I’d turn around and say, “Get a life!”  And NOT MINE
Or does it refer to blind writers? 
I guess it Could
I have a friend who is blind, and uses his computer
 which speaks

I used to get that on my computer
Until my IT man cleared it off -
You know that wavery tin voice:
“You are moving the mouse to . . .” what ever!
I really can’t remember the exact words;
Just that I had to hit a button to shut it up
Every time I started the machine
And it irritated the heck out of me
But I guess that’s another story
So I think I’ll stop here and relax
