Shut Down - but still alive

Wordless Wednesday (from India) here (Sept 19 - 2007)

We are alive. View from the top of our estate - Saturday September 15 - noon. At least, this is a very stimulating view - though, it's a hard climb up the steep rocks to the top. Worth it?



Plastic - here


Original Message:

Hi, I'll be away for some time. No inspiration.

FAQ:
Q: Why?
A:
it's as simple as this:
Spending the whole afternoon and evening only to upload one post - waiting and waiting - loose connection - reestablish connection etc etc - watch the screen where nothing happens, check modem lamps, antennas, , having about no time to comment and read other blogs - is so frustrating - driving me mad. I want a life.
Therefore as a rule, I will post only to WW and PH from office (no more time generally not available) until we are back in the Winterhome in 4 weeks time.
I've posted on http://toraamusic.blogspot.com my mood right now.

PS. I'll post from the Norwegian Mountains end of September (21-23) (CyberCruise)

PS 2: We will be in Amsterdam the weekend (28-30) and I'm in Riga Oct 9-11 and moving to Winterhome Oct 6-7. I'm also invited to my daughter in Miami.

PS 3: We will have dinner with Blogger friends end of October.

Q: Can we contact you?
A: I'm available on my e-mail

Q: Why is that?
A: Because e-mails normally does not have pictures, thus I can live with the slow, unstable line

Q: Do you feel frustrated?
A: What an insane question

Q: What will you do about it?
A: Read above. Only some weeks, and I'm back to normal. Pls be patient.

Q: When will you be back to normal?
A: I'll post Wordless Wednesday and Photo Hunters from my Office.
I'll also post from the Norwegian Mountains end of September (21-23) (CyberCruise)

Q: Will you post comments to your bloggerfriends posts?
A: I'll do my best - from office - in between. That might be very irregular. Hope you can excuse me.

Q: What will you say to your readers?
A: Love you all. You are such important inspirators. And I learn so much from you, I would not by any means miss a single of your posts?

Q: Can you read/upload posts?
A: Posts/sites with a few elements to upload takes a reasonable amount of time, but, "advanced" i.e. with to many fancy elements, it's takes too long - even "time outs".

Q: A last comment?
A: As said before: Love you all. I'll be back to normal soon. Hugs to you all from us in the Summerhouse.

My dear Tor-- I very much understand that feeling. While I always enjoy reading your posts here on your wonderful blog, we all need a rest sometime.

May you return refreshed and renewed!

You are missed already. :-)

What's that now ?? Are you crazy, what does that mean no inspiration ?? I got one for you ! Write about the depressions nordic people suffer from because of the lack of sunshine and light ! I hope you are not starting with that ! Buy a special "good mood" lamp, new toys for your cats to play with then you can watch them. Get on Anna's nerves maybe then your inspiration gets back, take happy pills, smoke hash, drink Whisky, Wodka or whatever, Hemmingway had to do that too ! Even Beethoven couldn't compose without booze !
If all this doesn't help I come over and shake your bad mood out of you !!

Everyone needs a break now and then. That doesn't mean that I won't miss your humor and insights.

Take your time and be good to yourself - just come back!

Tor, if that's the view to your summerhouse, it's any wonder you'd want to leave it...it is absolutely fantastic!

Oh Dear....I don't see my first comment here....Too exhausting to begin again....I am going to cry!

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Anna....

My Emmy Post will be up in the early morning here...(I hope)...

Not to worry about needing to take a break...I have been feeling that myself....I just cannot seem to get around to vgisiting everyone these days, AND, posting even every other day seems really hard....I have been working on this Emmy Post all damn day---with Major interuptions---I am tired.

Hugs To You Both...

Oh I know what else I said....Who is it that is going to Riga?
THAT is where my father is from!

Now that was very very cool way to manage and handle being away...course I couldn't do that because I couldn't get access to the internet...I was just dead.

I linked into you as well!
