I am trying not to get too down about this, but according to the computer specialist, it’s really not looking good for the recovery of the photos stored on my external hard drive. For those who don’t know, the drive crashed last week and I am facing the possibility having to make a decision regarding the recovery of my images. I will either have to spend a lot of money, or call it a day and chalk it all up to a learning experience.
Every single photo that I have taken since 2007 was on that EHD. I have several hundred stored on two online places (Shutterfly and Mpix) but other than this, nothing. I can’t imagine never seeing these images again, but I guess this is what happens to people who have boxes of photos and albums and lose them in floods or fires.
It is what it is. And like I said, I’m only facing this possibility. But it really doesn’t look good.
This may look dreary to you, but I think that the fog and the mist through the bare branches of trees is absolutely beautiful. This was my view one morning this week when I left for work. I had the camera with me because I was taking it to school to get the monthly photos of students that I always take, and conveniently captured these memories.
The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
I don’t want to think about all of my images. I can live without them, sure. But it could be five years worth of memories down the drain.
I’ll stop now.

I love how different the driveway always looks. Our driveway is partially wooded, and a third of a mile long with a gradual incline to the top. It’s really quite beautiful.
Plans for the weekend include cleaning, then decorating for the holidays. The Faculty Christmas Party is Saturday night and only a couple of minutes from my house this year. My friends, Christine and John, are hosting this year and they live in the development through the woods. They’re a fun family and have insisted that this year will be a blue jean casual affair. I can’t believe how happy everyone is about this. No, wait a minute. Yes I can! Fun.
Hope you all have a great weekend. And keep your fingers crossed for the recovery of my beloved photos, willya?
