No more or less than the truth

I have written words only for them to be erased by a computer.
I have tried to comment only to be frozen out by a computer.
I have tried to communicate only to be thwarted by a computer.

I am computer illiterate.

I do not have the energy to keep fighting the barriers that constantly rise to stop me.

I will not be trying again.

It is not as if I had anything to say worth reading.
My whole life is a failure of communication.

My last effort to enter Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot took over an hour to compose and was ‘lost’ in a second by a computer that I would gladly kick into oblivion.

Don’t tell me to keep trying.
I have had more than enough of that.

There is no time like the present


  1. I understand. You have to give up sometimes before you get anywhere. It cleans the slate.


  2. I won't tell you to keep trying, but I will tell you that I will miss you. I get excited when I see Colour Contrast Continuity in the subject line of en email...because I know when I open it - there will be a powerful words (often spoken gently) along with a stunning photo.

    Take care, my friend. Do what is best for you.
    Know that you will be missed, and thought of with great regard.
