Whew – that makes a change after a few years of no work.
And oddly enough, it seemed that everything was conspiring to stop me from doing it. I was about to set off for Germana’s house – tested my recorder first (smart!) and discovered it had stopped working. Just. Like. That.
Right – I called and left a message – will be a few minutes late. Went to London Drugs. No more analog recorders – it’s a digital world – and man, they’re expensive. But the good lady who has been serving me forever said, “Do you have a smart phone?”
“So use that recorder.”
And in two minutes or less she showed me how it works. Right. I drove to Germana’s house. Couldn’t find it. The address does not exist. I call her. Ah – I wrote it down wrong (duh!)
I arrived five minutes late. Not bad.
We sat down, I turned the recorder on my iPhone on and hoped for the best. We did one hour as promised. I drove home, had lunch and a nap (of course a nap) and then sat down in front of my computer.
My iPhone had recorded perfectly. I started typing from that and my copious notes. Half an hour later the power went out. I sat for another half hour. Nope. No power.
I took Abby for a walk in the downpour.
We came back. Hurrah! The power is back on.
And I wrote and wrote and wrote.
And I just finished.
Well then. I now feel like I am back in the groove. Yes, it did take me a while to figure out how to transfer my voice file to to my computer but I did it!
Ah technology. Love/hate relationship. But mostly love.
Yup – today I decided to choose abundance. And I got an abundance of challenges. Must be more specific next time.
