Yes!!! What Helen said. The “kinky” part.

Helen Wolfe Dietz – My Role Model With Regard to Kinks!

So… here I am, early in the morning — it’s still BIG DARK outside — looking at my new computer screen and trying to figure out where I am and how I got here and, most importantly, what to do about it.   My coffee cup needs refilling which usually means I’ve finished Wordle and am well on my way to completing my blog for the day — unless, of course, other matters are pressing.  Today “other matters” all involve one thing — a new computer and a new Windows program — technically two things, I suppose…  and  they (the other matters) are way beyond pressing.  More like crushing and pulverizing.

But a few days ago (or maybe only yesterday) when I was whining and worrying about getting this new extension of my life, my friend Helen wrote:  ” I’m working my way through the kinks of a new computer. It should work really well when I figure it out.”  KINKS!!  I couldn’t help giggling (if old ladies can be said to giggle) and I heard Nyel say as clear as clear:  “Be patient, Sydney.”

Morning Memory from May 2017

Another cup of coffee.  A deep breath.  An attitude adjustment.  And maybe a bit of introspection — as in why do I find unfamiliar territory so daunting, anyway?  I’m pretty sure I didn’t always feel this way.  Not about most things…  A shrink would probably tell me that as we feel our control of our surroundings diminish, we become more fearful of new things yadda yadda yadda.   But better “advice” for me is “just pull up your big girl panties and get on with it!”

And now the sky is growing lighter.  Soon the sun will peep over the Willapa Hills, the bay will reflect today’s allotted measure of visible sunrise, and maybe this blog will get posted before the sun sets.
