Today’s Thought For The Day from Dan Galvin’s TFTD:
“What I’ve done, of course, is total garbage.”
— R. Willard, Pure Math 430a
I’ve felt like this many, many times after finishing a project. Then, there have been times when I see something really exciting and very well made and am shocked to discover that I’m the one that made it. I was discussing this strange situation with other quilters the other night. Each one of us had experienced this same phenomena about creativity. I commented that when we create, it’s like throwing part of our energy out into the Universe, and once it’s out of us, it’s forgotten. It’s why I take photos of all my work (or try to remember to) — I know if I don’t capture it in a camera or scan it on my printer, I’ll forget that I created it.  Truly strange,  I can remember events, people, all sorts of other things, but I cannot bring to mind everything I’ve ever made.
I have folders on my hard drive labeled MY WORK, but there are also folders for all of the sewing projects I’ve completed over the years. I have photos all over my hard drive and I really need to sit down and take the time to move ALL of my photos into one central folder. This is one of my ongoing quests — to have my hard drive organized so that I can quickly find any photograph I need. C’Est la Vie — such is life.  Next week, CostCo will have a 2-trilobite external hard drive on sale. I plan on buying one and using it to back up my 1-trilobite external hard drive. I never thought I’d ever fill up that 1-trilobite, but it’s now three-fourths full. I was shocked to see that there are 9-trilobite external hard drive available. I can’t fathom that much storage space, but someone must have, for there they were at CostCo. The size of the drives was about the size of an Android phone. Miniaturization is a commonplace miracle today.
When I see these new sports watches that track your steps and who knows what else, I think of the comic strip character, Dick Tracey and his t.v./communicator watch. Years ago, that was fantasy–today, it’s reality. I wonder what 10 years from now will bring to our world.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Know that you are loved. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.

About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.
