I want to take this time to apologize for the sporadic posting. My computer decided it was Dale Earnhardt in turn 3 of the Daytona 500. Was that too soon? Somewhere out there in the world a person read that first sentence and started jumping up and down as if they lost the remote control. Well, being that I am back, let’s do something that has not been done in a while. How about a Retro Music Video?
My computer crashing was a pain in my ass. Let’s look at all the negatives. First of all, I lost my porn collection that I have been collecting for many years. I can say this did not bother me as much as it bothered my Valentine, my right hand. The upside, I will have a lot more free time. Another thing that I happened to lose was all my writings. A hard pill to swallow when you put a lot of time in an effort into your passion. However, there is an upside. My computer doesn’t have many random folders that made it look the inside of the offices of the IRS. A mess that needed to be cleaned, but why the hard way? The final thing is the one that gets me. I lost every photo that I had saved for years. A picture is a frozen still of a memory. A memory that will constantly be in your mind always to be brought out when the eyes lock on a picture. But is it the photos that matter? The memory will always be there to be thought of at a weird time. Life has a hysterical way of pulling out the past. While, the frozen stills are lost and gone forever, the memories that went with those pictures are not. At first I was sick to my stomach at the thought these stills of life were gone. It made me cry at one point. However, I started to look around and realized the memories are still with me. I could close my eyes and see everything that I have held near and dear to my heart. I learned in the past few days something precious. ‘There is Always Something There to Remind Me.’
