That which was dead

My laptop died the other day but a download of AVG software brought it back to life, if temporarily. It took many tries to get the software to load. Supposedly, the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over yet expecting a different result. When it comes to computers, you have to keep doing the same thing, just in case.

It’s a lot like writing. Sitting down day after day, putting words on pages and hoping for magic. Some days all you get is tired. Other days, MAGIC.

It’s the same with a lot of endeavors. Raising children is the same. Every day the little darlings fight you on a point and you counter. On and on it goes. Then, one day, they just do it. Learning is hard for all of us.

So, off I go with my rickety laptop to edit and later write.

What’s on your insanity list today?
