Anyone who is aware of my total sense of incompetence where machinery of any kind is concerned and my special idiocy in the face of ports, jacks, and the cords and wires that connect them, will be amazed to learn that i have disconnected my phone service (which was very unreliable and sometimes made access to the internet difficult or impossible) and reconnected my computer.  It was all a matter of not disconnecting one cord until i knew exactly which other one was its most logical replacement.  It was just a matter of seeing the logic and following it carefully.  I don't know why i cannot apply that logic more often?  Autism, i guess.

Anyway i have been able to "unbundle" my phone from my internet connection.  Both services are improved, and my bill(s) will be slightly lower, and, for the time being, i will not be going off line.

Other things are going slowly, and relatively well.  Life is struggle, but so far not a meaningless nor "unsuccessful" struggle.  I think my mind is becoming calmer, more able to stop thinking on command, more suited to a meditative state.  I am also better able to interpret Dianne's silence as chosen and positive, rather than as a failure to respond or thrive.  I am still here, for the time being anyway.  Thanks to those who bid me bon voyage.
Love, peace, comfort, and joy to everyone.

God bless you, and I'm glad that the vessel of your voyage isn't travelling in radio silence. I like the conversation that helps me know you're still travelling alongside me. :)

Congratulations on the translation between service providers: i've seen technical titans weep as they were mired down in a service transfer. I thought you went about it wisely.


A toast to staying on line, and to clarity of mind!

Thank you. The hands know what the mind does not know (and sometimes vice versa).

Re: The fixers
Thank you, Joan. Dianne and i have done visualization. She says they don't work for her. But that was many years ago, so i will try. It is a good idea!

Trees are my favorite shrines as well. But rocks work as well and chairs are almost as good.

I think plumbing problems are the worst if a dripless end product is desired. Of course, the right tools and a good instruction manual help. At least the technological change is not so rapid in plumbing. I can change a pipe pretty much the way my dad did and my children do.
