BLOG # 25 : A SURPRISING TIME OF SORROW !!
I wonder how I shall begin this?
I must say! When my Windows 8 computer broke down and died last month just before Autumn’s long awaited-by me’s, First Day, and I had to ask both my Godmother Karen and my friend Charlotte to send very anxious messages to my dear friend Hitomi-san telling her my computer was broken and that NO BLOGS would be sent until the computer was fixed, everyone was very understanding. And I thought —- I thought, I would not have to wait too long. A day or two maybe. But the day or two became nearly a month.
A MONTH !!!
I never felt such sadness. My heart was broken. And I thought of you. All of My Dear, Wonderful, Patient, Readers……wondering why all of a sudden your very faithful Mary Ann-san had allowed weeks to go by without even as much as a line! And oh! I thought and hoped my dear friend had explained to all of you what had happened. IN FACT: I had no doubt that she did because e-mails were sent back and were voiced to me by phone.
But still…..my heart and entire being….had suddenly been shut off from me. Loyal friends who were depending on me, waiting to hear from me, through something new. A new thing I learned about called a Blog…..suddenly were hearing nothing because of a BREAK DOWN I had caused —- the spilling of my precious coffee on the Windows 8 computer keyboard — . Because of this —- for a time —-there were NO BLOGS. No nothing. My Windows 8 died at the shop when taken to be fixed.
And I did too.
Yes. I died too.
There was a silence here, My Dear, Sweet, Readers , like you would not believe. I missed all of you. I missed my writing. I missed my Blogging. I was hurting. The nights and time passed. I cried. A LOT. Days passed. I cried still more thinking that there would be no more Blogs, no more e-mails. My friendship with all of you, My Readers, broken, gone, forever lost. And with Hitomi-san too. And Mrs. Takahashi-san who has been so kind to do this work in my behalf of taking all of her time to put my Blogs on the Home Page. All gone. All lost.
But then: Happiness returned in the form of a new computer. Windows 10. And the sorrow was lifted.
Oh! How Happy Am I That We Are Together Once More !!
I HAVE INDEED MISSED YOU ALL !!!!
Your Mary Ann-san
