Keep going

Apparently the determination to continue to do some thing even though you are 
facing difficulties, is a sign that that activity matters. Is this true?

If the blog looks a little different tonight, it could be because the computer 
that I normally type it on fell on the floor with a hard crunch. Not good. This 
means that at some point soon I will have to take the computer to be looked at —
fingers crossed it can be repaired. As world events go, especially now, this 
isn’t a big one. But some of the main functions of my working life happen on that 
piece of equipment.

I don’t want to say that I’m addicted to blogging. But it is perhaps one of the simple 
pleasures I have in my day. So if I can, even without my computer being repaired, I 
will try and continue. I’ll also try to respond to your comments, which make me very happy.

Wishing you a worry free and creative day.

I agree that the activity matters when you just keep doing it! Yesterday I had a terrible day of painting. The day before I did alright then nothing worked the following day. But today I got up and kept going.
Sorry to hear about your computer! We depend on them so much.

Thank you so much Evelyn,

Yes we do depend on our computers so much. I’m trying to figure out how to do this with my iPad and my phone. And I’m grateful that I have them. So sorry that you had a rough day painting. Your work is beautiful. And it makes me happy every time I see it. Thank you so much.
