The Flickering Blog



















I'm in the middle of a thunderstorm. So I'll be very brief. For two whole days my blog was nowhere to be seen. I only had access to my account. I could write a new post but I could not see the actual page. Today, I finally see my blog in its entirety. This reminds me of one of those beautiful and complicated sand mandalas done by Tibetan monks. After they finish their work they destroy the whole mandala. It is a lesson about impermanence. A blog is also impermanent. I'm glad I got it back. But there are no guarantees. One post at a time. It has been a little exercise on non-attachment. Thanks to my darling bloggers for letting me know that they were able to see the blog. I send you all my pink love.

This has happened to me, too, and it scared the bejesus out of me! I found that if I went in and edited a post, then it reappeared. Why? I don't know. It's a mystery.

Glad to know you're still here!

I am just taking this opportunity to stop by everybody's blog who left a message of condolence yesterday. It was a nice gesture and I appreciated it. Thanks.

Oh how scary! My goodness, I've never considered my blog going Poof!

I'm glad you're back, and I'm sorry I've been away so long...

PC, you are one of my very first followers which I will always be grateful for. I am enjoying blogging and miss your wonderfully written posts. Come back! Clare

It's not too bad but I've save each blog page - I figure some day I might want to re-read something I've done. I learned the hard way about things going poof - so now I use two backup hard drives and save just about everything.
