Contemplating - Two

I'm still contemplating.

In the meantime, you might want to go on over to Andy Carvin's Blog. Andy has probably done more than any other person to raise awareness and action in the United States on the Digital Divide. Long ago, his work convinced me why the Internet access shouldn't be limited to the well-to-do, and why we need to encourage policies that work toward Internet access for all.

Andy's father-in-law is quite sick. He has been suffering from an infection following surgery, and Andy asks for your thoughts and prayers for his recovery. Since Andy has so many friends on the Internet, I was thinking you might be one of them. He also has some links to some beautiful music that his father-in-law, David Cornwell, composed in his retirement.

Please spread the word.

UPDATE: Such sad news. While Andy's father-in-law was making terrific progress, a side effect from a medical test with horrific results led to his untimely death on November 7, 2006.

Thanks for the kind words about my work, and particularly about Dave. Amazingly, he's started to show some signs of improvement, and is off his ventilator for a couple hours a day. For the first time, the doctors are talking about the possibility of recovery, even though he's far from out of the woods yet.

This is such wonderful news! I do believe in the power of prayer and I thought it was a great idea to ask for prayers for your father-in-law's recovery on your blog. Please keep us updated there.
