Technology Bumps and Blessings

Two weeks after my hard drive crashed, I am still working out all the things my computer did for me without me having to think.

Connections to printers, wifi, passwords. All those automated maneuvers I took for granted were no longer. Every day I discover yet another roadblock I need to overcome.

When I attempted to log on to this blog tonight, the automatic, three stroke move did not work. My site was there but I had no access and when I tried to establish contact, WordPress greeted me with the possibility of creating a new site because I had no site.

Ack. No, no, no, no.

I retraced my clicks and found the correct email path. A reset and thankfully, the door unlocked and I was allowed back into the place I created years ago. The old posts and familiar faces who have commented over the years.

Those moments of not being able to access what was mine showed me how I value this space and the journey recorded. Years of moments and reflections. Comments and connections. All treasured bits of my life.

Technology. A blessing when it works.

  1. I recently bought a new computer and had the same frustrations. Passwords get me! I have a trusted password book but sometime, thinking of course I’ll remember, I forget to write them down, and I, inevitably, forget. I’m glad you found your way back here!
