Little Blog Thoughts

Why I have not been posting!

Well...in the blink of an eye so much can change. Over three weeks ago now, sitting here at the computer just getting ready to post, my computer went into blue screen. Nothing. No movement possible. When I called the computer service I use, and went through a few things guided by them, I was told that the hard drive of my 7-month old laptop was gone and that likely nothing was recoverable. I have since learned that this is not an uncommon event now with so many being made.

I was in deep shock. I have lost many documents (including 60 poems for a new book, only some handwritten in a notebook) and most photos, those that I had not backed up for nearly two months. Yesterday I received the computer back but without a Microsoft Office program, which I now must purchase again, since I had given the software to someone when I thought I no longer needed it. What a surprise to learn that Windows 8.1 comes with only Notepad or Wordpad, no proper document software!

So...I begin again, with what I have. How interesting that this has happened during this sabbath year, when everything is being shaken loose and new thoughts arising, and the phrase "positive disintegration" is haunting me day and night. Perhaps the computer is just a physical manifestation of a deeper inner process. so off I go again!

Now into a second reading of INK and HONEY, I am finding it much richer and it's pulling me ever deeper into contemplation of my daily life.
