that died a while back.
I do have to console myself at the fact I was wise this time to begin saving my files in an alternate place. Unlike the event with my desktop.
Geezers, I thought perhaps I could win the lottery - ok maybe enough for a new computer after all I am not greedy.
Maybe there is a Computer Fairy Godmother or Godfather who will hear my cries in the night as I long for my laptop, I gaze across the top of my desk at the empty space where it use to sit.
As I take it to the river and stand watching as the water moves forward knowing the laptop will sink quickly from my view, oh how I will miss it's key board and the silly mouse that laid next to it, the crisp screen to which lit up my life as I sat till the wee hours of the night in the dim light of my office typing away my articles for The People News, just to make sure you would have the Realm of Reality to read each month.
Perhaps by laying it to rest, some how some way I will be blessed with another laptop. I know that somewhere out there, I see myself as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, tapping broken computer parts together and saying…. If I only had a laptop…. If I only had a laptop… If I only had a laptop.
So now at this second attempt to make sure an article gets in the paper, I give to you my famous summing up.
When you feel enlightened and the grasp of reality and energy sits in the palms of your hands or in the tips of your fingers, save constantly to your back up source, some of us do still keep journals. Pen and paper writing may be a thing of the past for most, but in reality all things do come back.
I am glad I have my journals, I am glad I have people who enjoy my articles, I am happy to share my energies even if they destroy my computer.
You see that is what life is about; there are no carbon copies unless we back it up ourselves, every moment, every event, and every living memory we must store within ourselves.
Photos fade and books crumble with age, but the images we carry will last forever.
A new laptop would be kewl too.
Stay healthy, live, love, laugh. Tell the Easter bunny where to drop off a laptop ok.
