Breathe Deep

Well, girls and boys, imagine my surprise that my computer is going back to the shop for the same reason as the last three times since October 23. This coincides with a bit of traveling I'll be doing, so my posts will be coming to you, as this one is now, from my cute little iPad--for the foreseeable future.

Here's the thing. I had some nifty Christmas-sy images lined up, but didn't have opportunity to transfer them to this device. I could just opt out of posting for awhile, but I enjoy this bloggy stuff too much.

I have some of my portfolio stuff on the iPad, so at the risk of boring you, I'm going to be posting some of that--with some pieces that you may have seen on my other blogs and some not.

The geniuses promise me that they will do everything in their power to make this right for me, but it will take until after Christmas, due to waiting for a scarce part. There's even a slight possibility of a replacement machine, but there are complications with that as well.

So be that as it may (I've always wanted to use that phrase, though it doesn't really make sense to me), I will be bellying up to the (space) bar and post when and what I can.

If for some perverse choice of the Universe I am unable to follow thru with my Quixotic plans, I wish you all Happy Holidays (this is not just a Christian time of year, so back off all you holier-than-thouers, and show some tolerance for the rest of us sinners that have different ideas about this time of year!).

As one of my favorite artists (hi James!) has coined:

Breathe deep and seek peace.

Hi Thom,

Hope your computer problems didn't prevent you receiving my email. Have a great time in London and a very merry Christmas to you.

Thom, after inhaling deeply, do NOT forget to exhale because you feel under too high pressure by the (rather preposterous) situation.
May I offer my deep sympathy and also my usual stupid comment under similar circumstances: "What is it all compared to the immensity of the universe?" (AKA: "Don't panic!")
I'll be offline for a few days; so pse do not get the impression that you have been forgotten just because you cannot "deliver"...
Peace with you and your's!

Thom—

I'm very sorry that these computer problems persist.

While I continue to agree that the MacOS interface is appropriate to you, should you ever choose to migrate to software built on the X interface (which underlies most of the *nix GUIs other than that of MacOS), I'll help you to make that transition quickly.
