The Journey Begins

 My computer is FINALLY back up and running, but it is still a bit of a mess, and it's gonna be a while before it is working the way I want it to operate.  This whole experience has drained my "computer patience" so I'm taking it one little step at a time. Yes, I am taking another of Kim Klassen's classes called "Beyond, Beyond." Our first assignment was to take 10 pictures of one subject without moving that subject and to keep a journal of the nit-picky mundane things we do each day looking at them from a different point of view. My "mundane" choice for my journal was cleaning of the  stove and oven each night ( it turned into something really interesting),  and my "choice of photos" was this one with my glasses, my journal, and the unicycle. Once I finished taking the pictures, I was to choose a favorite and post it. I was experimenting with depth of field so the blur in the photo made me happy. Hope all of you are well. I've missed your photos these past weeks. Surely, this is the LAST time I self-destruct my computer. 3 times in 12 months are enough for a lifetime! I really do think I bought a lemon this time. Thanks again for all of your suggestions and encouragement. There really is comfort in numbers when it's coming to the crashing of one's computer. I now have a portable external hard drive designated to the MacBook Pro and have ordered another. From everything I have read, I now know I need to have a back up for the back up. 


HAPPY OUR WORLD TUESDAY TO ALL OF YOU:-)
