My Computer's Back

My computer at home is now back online. My new computer room, with the leisure blue walls, white wall shelves, new white blinds, washed curtains, new wood/pergo flooring, new quarter round and socket/switch plates is now much more comfortable to me and it's getting put back together, slowly. Now my life - along with the rest of the house - can return back to something like normalcy. Maybe, just maybe, I'll take a photograph and place it on this blog when things are put back into place.

I am so far behind on comments, I don't know that I'll get caught-up, so at this point I'll either start over on keeping up with them or I'll slowly, over time, answer them, one by one. I've read them all, whenever I was able to find a free moment at work. Speaking of work, I no longer have time to spend online and I doubt we will for the next year or so; it will be quite busy. I do sneakily visit my email from time-to-time, though, and all blog comments are sent to my email so I never miss a single one.

Sophia,
Don't be cruel. Be compassionate. ;>)

I had to say goodbye to my young love interest. To protect her ego and reputation.

Sophia said...

Siegfried,

If I were not to be cruel to those that had wronged me, I would be doing nothing more than letting the world walk all over me. I used to allow this to happen. People took advantage of me. People hurt me. They did so without any fear of retribution from me because I was too weak or afraid to stand up for myself. But now that I have grown older and perhaps stronger, I can stand tall next to someone who would like instead to see me quiver.

How old was this love interest? How old are you? Maybe it was your own ego and reputation that you were protecting. You could be projecting that need onto her.

I wish you would allow comments on your blog. Do you not allow them because you think you'll never be capable of keeping up with them? You could give a caveat that people comment at their own discretion without any guarantee of a response from you. I've seen many a blogger that simply do not respond to comments. I choose to because it's something I enjoy. Not everyone has to. Or maybe you fear being judged. Who in your social circle would judge you? You could always make your blog invite-only, and readers would have to log-in to read it, then they could comment. Just some ideas.

Sophia, my friend, you are great, I love the banner with the eye, and I certainly know it is YOUR blog! I would love to see the photo of your room. Yeah, crap happens, I just won't be interferred with by some people, I don't wish them harm, just to stay away from me, don't need their input in any way, that is how I handle some 'shit' that just happens, assume they must have some integrity, they are human, but let them go and practise it elsewhere. Anyway, that is just something I do, you do as you see fit, I am for you!

Love your writing, stay busy at work, it is good! Love to you as always!

Jim, I know the banner can use some work; the eye's edges are a bit rough but only because I've not had much practice with Adobe Photoshop. I have never created anything with Adobe; I've simply used it to apply some filters to fractals I've made. I have a lot to learn.

I'll take a photo of my computer room and my kitchen which just got finished. Next on the list is the master bedroom. We're getting new flooring and we're painting the walls. We have natural hardwood flooring under the carpets but we want some insulation, and the pergo we use has a nice cushiony layer under the "wood".

"...let them go and practice it elsewhere." Exactly!

Big hugs for you!

Sophia,
I don't like to give you too much details about my personal life and recent experiences, because I decided to keep a lot of it for myself. And to learn something from it. In fact your next post seems to point to it somehow, if I understood you correctly.
If you have read some if not most of my personal journal entries since I started writing them in July, you will realized I had been thru a dream or journey, going from one relationship break-up to another, ending in heartbreaks and broken hearts...
At the same time, I became aware of a lot of synchronicities in my life in the process...
Moreover, you may also have noticed that I actually got rid of all the journal enties around it for fear of certain people having found or finding out about it, since I had been using real names, circumstances, and events, and my own interpretation of it...including the one that tried to justify or explain it...
I probably write about it more later...

Siegfried, Happy New Year to you my friend, I've always admired you! I wish you the best!

Jim,
Happy New Year! Thanks! I think that's what friends are for. ;>)
