Oh, summer was a blur alright. A good blur, right up until the moment last week when my computer (after a few death throes) gave up the ghost. Turns out they don't call it the black screen of death for nothing. A person less in denial might have seen the warning signs and jotted a few email addresses down, saved a few more things to disc. So, you know, if you haven't heard from me, I'm not ignoring you, really I'm not. I just don't happen to have your email address committed to memory. Most of the people I know are on facebook, and they've heard me bleat via the status line about the whole computer death, switchover, and my learning curve on my new one, a Mac. There are definitely some things I need to wrap my brain around. I also need a get rich quick scheme, cuz, I sure hadn't factored in the price of a new computer to my summer budget.
All in all, though, it was a great summer. Great friends, great wine, great friends who brought me great wine. I can't complain.
In conclusion, do not hurry, do not rest. Welcome to fall, cooler temperatures, more time and the pleasures of a routine. Happy writing to those of you who write. : )
And, one last photo, just because. Pretty colours and all that.
