Instead of an X-box
please show me a pathway that stretches to the stars.
Instead of a mobile phone
please teach me the language I need to help me speak with angels.
Instead of a computer
please reveal to me the mathematics of meteors and motion.
Instead of the latest computer game
please come with me on a search for dragons in the wood behind our house.
Instead of an e-reader
please read to me from a book of ancient knowledge.
Instead of a digital camera
please help me remember faces and places, mystery and moonbeams.
Instead of a 3D TV
please take me to an empty world that I can people with my imagination.
Instead of electronic wizardry
please show me how to navigate the wisdom inside of me.
