Life First, Blog Later.
A long-time online friend of mine, Bonii Jo, holds this as a mantra, and it is a wise one to have. January 2011 has brought multiple challenges with it, the least of which is that Paul’s and my motherboard finally had a meltdown in our one, shared computer. I am at his ex-wife’s home right now, typing this, trying to come to terms with the fact that I have already been out of touch via computer for a couple of days, and it is going to be several more before we can either get a new motherboard put in, or get a new tower altogether. It’s been really shitty timing, honestly, but then as the saying goes, “When it rains, it pours.”
I’m feeling like poor flooded Queensland right now (I feel bad writing that. I’m sure those poor people in Oz feel worse than I do and have bigger problems in a lot of ways. But there has been a personal deluge of things to deal with so far in the New Year, and “flooded” is the best description I can muster for what things feel like right now.)
So, if you have been trying to get in touch with me, or wondered why I have not been by to comment on your blog, or are musing on the fact that you can hear the sound of chirping crickets on this blog, that’s why.
Live long and prosper, and hope to see you back here again very soon.
