I haven't posted recently, except eloquently in my head as I commute.
My reasons are varied and valid.
I have something and nothing to say.
Things are small and too big.
My time is limited and I have been spending it on FB, both keeping up with people in my physical world and those online friends who are over there too. I've been trying to clear clutter by selling. Not really going great lately. Oh well.
But, mostly...everything with my computer takes so so so long to do. I think the problem is both the computer and the connection. Double whammy.
So I get frustrated and quit. Besides the slowness (connection and too much stored on hard drive probably)...I get the spinning wheel of death constantly. I get the 'stop script' message constantly. I have to force quit and begin again...a lot. If I type to fast (hardly possible with my skills) - it freezes or my cursor jumps into a completely different place, which I of course don't notice as I type merrily along! Then I pause for a moment and AHHHHH...what is all of this gibberish??!!
Sigh...fix it up.
The numeral 6 often doesn't work on the first try.
Things get highlighted and moved at will, just not mine!
A new computer is not in the picture right now, so I will have to see if those 'geniuses' can work their magic soon!
So, there you have it. If I don't post or comment often...you'll know why.
And if you're on FB...say hello there! That seems to be all my distracted shallow brain can handle right now!! Haha
Now for a post that is not just whining!
Happy photos and current events = LIFE.

I was all set to post a poetic, beautiful post near the last full moon.
But, along with the computer issues...
My friend's husband recently passed away.
Although he'd been sick, his passing was sudden and not expected.
He was 2 months older than me.

This has been a hard year for health and life and death.

After attending his funeral, yet another funeral...
the next day wast the local
American Cancer Society - Relay for Life.
I met some friend's there.
We walked in the candlelight in honor, memory and hope for many.
I'll post about that another day.
while another co-worker began the care, concern and juggle of her mother's ill health.

I have friends in the Isla Vista area.
I used to work up that way.
I know someone who taught the shooter as a child.
Too close for comfort.
These shootings can happen anywhere at any time.
That is so scary to me.
Especially since the reasons seem to be...
seem to be...
to be...so unworthy of causing so much pain.
It is overwhelming to think of all the children we care for...
try to help...
or don't even know to help.

Today my sister's family had to send off their ill 15 year old dog.
15 years of loving and living with a dog is a long time.
Charlie will be missed.
May tomorrow bring better days,
for my friends, family and co-workers.
For us all.

So, a few hours later...
you've got this.
A post about dying and life.
Pretty much as it should be, yes?
Also, I got a message from Yvette...
she got her gift!!!! Yay!
I will post about that soon.
Plus, I've already been working on Els gift too!
Have a nice week everyone.
