my computer stopped working. it turns out that the problem was easily
solved with a visit to the apple genius. but in the quiet of my own home
i found that my photos were not there and i have a lot of photos that are precious to me.
i am trying to keep a low grade panic at bay. i have to consult again with a technician
to help me with this problem. on the days when technology works, it makes life seemingly
easier and i wonder if how i manage without it. . on the inevitable
break down days... that's another story. i count on my computer, phone and
other electronic devices to work. i started to think about what it is that i can
count on, who it is i can count on, whether interdependence and independence
are mutually exclusive. i came back to the basic thought that i can count on myself,
i can count on key people and i can count on change. there was a time when
i thought it important to do things myself, to not count on others for help. i thought
that made me a strong person. but i don't want to be a lone island.
i like the richness that comes with having
people in my life. to share, to relate, to laugh, to create with.
it might be simplistic but i think that covers it.
