Or So I Thought

Or So I Thought

The following morning I assumed my ranch chores and returned to the house before the heat became oppressive.  I wrote another chapter in my soon to be finished book and feeling smug about the day, checked my emails.  I heard thunder in the distance but since it wasn’t close, I took no notice.  And then the electricity went off and on.  The computer remained off.  I turned it back on and was surprised to witness a screen that said to the effect, “Setting up your new email.”   My email had been erased by the power surge or outage.  I couldn’t fill out the blank that said server.  Since I live in a very rural area, I am served through a tiny phone company in Rocksprings, Texas.  The phone company serves a small area in population but quite a few miles.  I’m not eligible for all those money-saving long distance services and lots of other things, a small price to pay for living in such beauty.   I opened my IPad and determined that the email on it was working and executed my usual phone call to son Joe.  He logged into my computer with logmein and went into the fantastic time machine and restored my email.  What an amazing invention, the time machine.  Wouldn’t it be great if we could go into a time machine of our life and restore events.  Then there would be no depression.  We could return to those happy moments. Actually we have that power, just need to tap into it.  Meditation is a great tool.
