We have both been frustrated by this. We are now putting our frustration behind us and moving along with our day. This, in dealing with technology, is key. I am okay, having now considered the situation, which is that I am able to type up my dispatches but not send them. I can send photos on my cell phone. I can make phone calls on my cell phone. I can access my power point presentation on the computer, so I will have this to work with when in Bellingham.
I have the feeling that this story is not over. My story will continue, and we will see how I deal. So, again, the heuristic here was the word computer and this was a spark – one that resulted in a story. This story could take on a life of its own, and be one that I tell repeatedly to others. And others might repeat it. Others might also identify with this story and come up with one of their own, a story or stories that go with the thematic thread that I have created, which is that there is an art to dealing with technology when travelling – and that abandoning ship and considering your other options when things go awry is the best thing to do.
Had I not written down the word computer and then contextualized it by putting it in story form, I would not have come up with the above.
There is yet another part to this story. It involves dealing with those who aren’t okay with one’s technological difficulties. Pete, at the distance, was unable to give an assist. And El was not able to give an assist. We all moved on. This was all any of us could do.
