“Go, go, go, said the bird: human kind cannot bear very much reality.”  ts elliot
It’s that time of year again.  My reality is backed up here, and there, and over there too.  All life really lives on a thumb drive.  It used to live in archival boxes and books, then floppy discs, Zip Discs, just discs, and now thumb drives.  Shrinking reality is real.
Sometimes I’m afraid if I plug this year’s thumb drive into my computer, there will be nothing these.  Empty.  Gone.  No more saved reality…or it has shrunk so small that I can’t see it.  The images shrunk so small they aren’t usable…sometimes computers do this with older jpgs.
Perhaps, like us, digital reality doesn’t just diminish with time it retreats into another  dimension.
I wish you all a wonderful new year in what ever dimension you keep your reality….you bet your sweet bippy.                                                           

  • Himself:  His very long stretch of overtime ends on the first.  Oh hurrah.  At the moment he is still working 9 to 9.  Today quitting at 5.  All these hours really matter, he is really pleased with his new paycheck.
  • Herself:  Swam and read.  Today swim, bake a parmesan chicken, meeting.  A staycation indeed.
  • 52 Week House Reorganization:  Printout more phone pages.
  • Reading:  I went to the library and brought home 6 Peters and Anne Perry.  Just what I need on these long rainy days.

  • Gratitudes:  For having such a wonderful life.

    1. Yes, another dimension, the cloud. That's where my photos now reside.

    2. The rain sounds good for your part of the world. Happy New year, Mage!

    3. My daughter has been converting old photos for us. What a job. And what a babe I was, although no one told me that!
      Anyway, Happy New Year!

      1. How wonderful to see yourself with fresh eyes. Mahalo. and Hugs.

    4. This is too deep for my cold-clouded head when I wake up early. :)

      1. Come back when you have had your coffee.
        All I said was I saved everything three places.
        Happy New year.

    5. I am ready to be all alone for over a week in a few days with some downtime, hopefully, to exercise and organize. Ah, the best laid plans...

      1. Did you say you were off to visit kids? LOL Hugs and happy new year.

    6. Its a wonderful life indeed. And Happy New Year to you and George dear friend.

    7. I go through the days and suddenly find that I've missed reading your blog -- missed writing in my own. I look back to see what was so important and I find nothing but day after day after day of moving through the days. I think I've been floating with the current in this river of life. Thankful that you are still here as I resurface...


    What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.
