About a million years ago, or two weeks in sane time, the hard drive on my MacBook crashed. With it went a project I'd labored over, three years of writing, all my iTunes and every photo I'd meticulously collected.

When the new hard drive was installed, I rejoiced. I had an external hard drive and surely much of what had been lost would be there!


It was as if I were starting over. With everything.

And so I am. The ideas that are worth writing about again will still be in my soft drive (i.e. cranium) and the project may be better the second time around (and I thank thee, oh saintly project giver, for your patience).

After slowly recalling all of my passwords, I made my way back here. Here, too, I will begin again.

Egad! Time to figure out a new back-up plan.

Oh no. I too had a hard drive crash at the beginning of the week, but thank GOD they were able to save it. I have found some weird glitches here and there, but so far nothing seems to be missing.

I hope.

Hey Jen...it's been a long time since high school. I'm not even sure if you'll remember me, but we swapped some sci-fi fantasy books and I considered you a friend. Turns out I'm a lousy friend waiting 25 years to catch up, but I'm living in the area again. This was the only way I could find to contact you. I'm not sure I want to post phone or email in the comment. I'd love to grab some coffee or tea and catch up sometime.
