“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness … The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.” W. H. Curry, The Scottish Himalayan Expedition.
This past weekend my blog host suffered some kind of a glitch and I was unable to get into my site to edit or write. Was this a sign? The problem began on a Friday evening and was still an issue on Saturday morning. I quickly sent a text to my granddaughter, Miah, who is my tech guru. Her reply worried me. Not the part about, these things sometimes happen, but the part where she said that she was no where near a computer. A young person not near a computer. This young woman has a future.
Because I schedule posts a few days ahead, which allows me to go on vacations and prepare for holidays and just goof off every now and then, I wasn’t immediately hysterical. What would happen to the world if I missed a day of posting on my blog! Nothing, you moron worry wart!
And then I remembered why I’d started my blog. I started my blog so I’d become rich and famous write because I like to write! Was there a problem with just writing, sans blog, and starting a huge word document that I could leave to my children and grandchildren so they’d have something to shred/delete after my demise?
This, and other questions, shall remain unanswered because my blog magically came back into existence. And thanks, Miah, for the new mantra. “These things happen”.
