Updates Are Available…

My computer has been busy updating this morning…and I have to wonder…why does it always choose my writing time to do that…it’s like it’s the anti-muse…oh…you have an idea…wait…hold that thought…I’m updating…and I’ll let you get back to it…as soon as you restart me

So…yes…iTunes is finally updated…after months of failed attempts…and right after the restart…java script jumped in and got up-to-date as well…thankfully it didn’t require an additional restart…

The iTunes situation got…Bertha’s…attention…see as I mentioned…for months…it has been showing a particular update was available…but for some strange reason…known only to computer geeks…it continually failed when I tried to apply it…in fact…this morning…I almost just closed the box without attempting it…but…I kind of halfheartedly clicked yes…thinking…oh well…what does it matter…it won’t work anyway

But…it did…

Now…I have no idea what was different about today…all I know is…iTunes is now working on my computer again…

Bertha…says it reminds her of my life…of the times…that I give up too easily…after one try…or two…and…I realize…she’s nudging me again…reminding me that when all the internal components are ready…things work out easily…

Hmmm…who knew the computer’s updates…would inspire all this contemplation…maybe it isn’t the anti-muse after all…

I Think I Can…I Think I Can…

Lately…Bertha…has been nudging me towards some career areas that I’m not totally comfortable with…she started out gently…a thought here…a suggestion from a friend there…but lately…her nudging…is about as gentle as a bulldozer nudging a sapling to get out of its way…

So…yesterday…as she was once again pushing…and I was once again presenting my case…she threw out this challenge…

Stop focusing on the reasons why you can’t…instead…make a list of all the reasons why you can…

Funny how that one statement grabbed me…I didn’t have time to sit down and make a list at the time…but…all day long…the list was going through my mind…and I kept asking myself…why can I do this…not…how can I do this…which is a totally different question…

Well…my list is kind of short at the moment…yesterday was a busy day…but…I think I’ve started in the right direction…
