E-mail Explosion

Overload

Technology is amazing

An interesting treasure and such a pleasure

There is also a beast that can hide

In every e-mail that is not erased

It sits and waits

Deep in your computer

As the pile grows

It clutters your mind just a little

Printed on an endless amount of computer space

Work e-mails and many other ones friends have sent

Some funny and interesting and neccessary I am sure

Every time you click you see your e-mails

Once just a few on a page now they lead a mile long

On occasion you hit delete but two often you start to save

It starts with one,two and three

Then it leads to 2,200 e-mails staring back at me

Soon each e-mail leads a trail

Of where you have been and what you found so interesting

So as I try to escape I hit delete,delete

They slowly erase

Now I have cut my e-mails down to 1,711

It's a good start

Two hours later I feel relieved of some old e-mails I really didn't need

Funny how little things start and soon they can get overwhelming

In a fast paced world where so many things are disposable

We have to constantly make choices what has to stay and what has to go

How very true. I fight e-mail everyday and I have 5 of them. My brilliant idea is thus regular e-mail for local stuff, e-mail for my writing job, e-mail for hub mail and some other impt stuff, two old e-mails with assorted stuff I've been too lazy to change the addresses on. Basically what it all boils down to is that I run through the odd assorted mail quickly and then I check my impt e-mail sites 2x a day so I don't fall too far behind. So I know all about e-mail pile up. Can you imagine what will happen at Christmas when I plan on being off line at least for two days. lol
