difficlty

When you are as old as I am, and people are putting roadblocks in your way, it is so easy to say 'OK, if google is going to be difficult, I give up.' I have sat down so many times with a smashing idea for a blog, and after half an hour of arguing with google, the idea would pale off and some other job would call and so all inspiration would be gone. Today when I have absolutely no idea of what to say, it worked the first time I tried. I feel better and as soon something enters my head , I will be in touch.

When Shreve wrote that there would be fewer messages from her for a while, someone commented, Maybe your grandmother could fill in for a while. Thank you for writing that. It filled me with a lot positive feelings. But I could never fill in for Shreve

I don't care if you don't have any momentous message. I'm just glad to see you again.

You are a wonderful writer and every time I see a new post from you I get excited to read it. I really admire and respect your world view and your talented hand at rendering it. I hope this post means we'll be seeing more from you soon.

I am one of many, I am sure, who love to read whatever you write. You are a very interesting person. Hope you'll be writing more often.

Next time you sit down to write a blog, write it in a word document first and save it, or write it as an email, and send it to yourself. Then you can copy it into the Google site, if the site is being nice, or, if it's not, you will have it as a permanent record of your thoughts and it will also be there for you to copy into the blog on another day.

I'm sure your daughter or Shreve can show you how to copy something that's on the computer and post it into something else.

Best wishes.....

Glad to see you back, Svensto! Hope you're feeling better and that google will start behaving itself.

It's always a pleasure to read what you write, short or long, light or deep. You are an inspiration.

Cheryl said...

I too am happy to see you back! You ARE very interesting and I enjoy reading all your posts. Computers ARE difficult for those of us who weren't 'weaned' on them. LOL

Hi Svensto! Thanks for sharing another post with us--any time you write, it's a real pleasure to read. Your blog has been on my 'favourites' list since you started it.

I agree with all of your posts here. We enjoy hearing/reading from you!

Shreve did an interesting thing on her Honey Rock Dawn site where she posted photos of her handwritten thoughts whilst on the mountain. I think that you could even share your thoughts and memories in perhaps the same way. A sort of 'snippet' method -- one that doesn't require a bunch of hullabaloo with Google and typing. I thought it was a neat way to share.

Glad to hear from you and hope that you are enjoying some sunny fall weather!

Hi Svensto,
I agree with what so many others have said, when you write, I read and enjoy.

When it comes to computers, there are times I am SURE they are here mainly to test our patience.

All my best to you.
