Sometimes, you just feel pounded. I think it started with the recent inexplicable computer problems I’ve had lately. I use a number of different machines, and it seems that the more machines you use, the more computer problems you have. If you want to test on multiple platforms, there’s no way around it.
Even when you hunt down 1 or 2 of your 5 computer problems, 2 or 3 seem to pop up in their wake.
It’s a decent metaphor for life in general. You’re always trying to solve problems. Every day brings new challenges, which is great when you’re feeling on top of the world and each solution feels like a victory. But on some months it can feel like you’re just losing ground. It’s as though you can’t get on top of things without applying some extraordinary effort using energy you don’t have. Then there’s the stuff that’s out of your control that sticks in your craw.
This is why my blog posts have slowed a bit. I’m enervated and can’t seem to get out of my own way. I’ll feel better soon…I think…but at the moment…”Bleh!” is the emotion of the day.
I do have to say that listening to Air America Radio is helping a little bit. Misery loves company?
