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.

Yikes! It’s rather scary to think about the “stuff” our computers really contain – so many stored memories, thoughts, communications with people in our lives.
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!
Your title is so true! Glad you were able to find your way in so you could write. I do look forward to what’s happening in your world.
Our heart goes into every word. Glad it worked out.
