A week in bed (ill, unfortunately) followed by a week with no computer as my lap-top finally died, taking many of my secrets to its grave. That's a relief. New machine now all set up, but the difficulty of buying anything here is so frustrating (even for an exceptionally patient and undemanding person like me :-)). You can spend half an hour talking specs and models, choose a computer, get your money out - only to be told they don't keep stock, in a tone that suggests you've made some nasty distasteful proposition. It's crass to actually want something NOW in France. Anything commercial anyway.

HI freind, hope you're fully recovered?
In memory of your computer, a Haiku poem (not my work I hasten to add)

With searching comes loss
And the presence of absence:
"My Novel" not found.

Hope it dodn't take anything you needed?
Blessings to you
S :)

Nice one, thank you.

In the tamest world
We must learn to do without
What we have not got

(afraid that is my work)
