Two Steps Back

imageBack to paper and pen: So after seven years hard labor, my Mac book finally gave up the ghost. Luckily I’d completed three manuscripts. But the fourth is only half done! I was backing up (honest!) but only once a month or so.  Yesterday Tim drove me to the closest Apple store, we purchased a machine twice as fast and half the weight, and they promised to do their very best to recover my ‘stuff’ in 3 to 5 business days. “Never know with a vintage machine.” Vintage! I don’t know which is worse, being without my Mac, or waiting for the phone call to hear it’s well and truly dead!

About Wendy Fallon

By day I am a technical writer, and by night and on weekends I am an artist and creative writer. Living in Phoenix, AZ with my husband Tim, I find the urban wilderness in which we live to be endlessly fascinating. Our home is tucked up against South Mountain, the largest city park in the U.S. The canal slashing across the base of the mountain provides inspiration for paintings, drawings, and sitings of wild coyotes, skittering fluffs of newborn quail, lizards and constant change.
