I am so frustrated. I just lost 68 pictures, capturing my last 3 weeks and our transition into spring. I had all these delights to share with you tonight, and now nothing. No maple sugaring updates. No equinox festivities, no spring nature table shots. No images of the incredible amaryllis blossoms which have now passed. No shots of sharing lunch with old friends, or pancakes with new ones. Oh, and Jason's birthday party and music night, all that is gone too! Can you tell I'm bummed??? This is the downside of the ephemeral nature of our digital age, I suppose, but it hurts. The other evening a woman came into the library almost in tears. She is a mother of 4 and her youngest had accidentally send the external hard drive that holds their entire digital library (all their photos and videos of their family life) crashing to the floor to it's demise. So I guess the moral of the story is, BACK UP EVERYTHING!!!
