Sometimes you have to examine what you’re doing and take a step back. I was just about five minutes from completing a wonderful post about an even I went to last night and then it happened. I took a break to check the laundry and my laptop shut down.

Why? On a purely technical note, my battery hasn’t been seating as well lately. My power cord came loose when I stood up and viola–reboot.

Now, I have a choice. Do I get mad and slam this laptop against the ground? No. I believe that when I loose work I was going the wrong direction. If I can reconstruct it (whatever it is), it will never be exactly the same. I might go a different direction. I might never do it again.

Either way, it’s a choice.

Oh yeah, and I should have saved a draft, but that’s a choice, too.
