Crane on the Lake

There are times when words simply do not suffice — when they’re a mere reflection of a thought or emotion already expressed.

That’s how I felt about the comment section in my previous post.  Believe me, I intended to reply to every one of them (and normally I do), but there was something special about them… something decrying further comment.

Simply stated, there wasn’t one word I could add to each beautifully, eloquently, heart-shared sentiment without detracting from them.

So I didn’t.

An anomaly, perhaps?  My life is full of them.

Take this crane, for instance.

Crane on Top of the Lake

At first glance (from the deck), he appeared to be walking on water.  (My life is full of miracles, too.)  I grabbed the camera, zoomed in, and discovered an optical illusion of sorts…

Crane Reflection

To me, it proves that you can’t improve (or surmise) on a good thing.

Leave it alone.  Relish it.  Savor it.  Be grateful for it.

Thank you very much for your genuine, deeply shared (and deeply felt) comments on my last post.

Enjoying blog world’s finest thinkers with thoughts (and hearts) of their own,

Testing 1, 2, 3…

Hello, sweet readers.  In the foggy area of “technical” (to me) stuff, some of you have mentioned encountering difficulties when you try to leave a comment on my blog.  (Heaven forbid!)

I did some checking and this is what I found out.

If you have (or had) a WordPress account and you’re not logged into it when you try to comment on my (WordPress) blog, be prepared to encounter a “pop up box” after you type in the usual name/e-mail/url.  (This is similar to how FoodBuzz, Facebook — basically any “aggregate blog forum” that asks you to sign in to protect the innocent — keeps the bad guys out and the good guys in.)

What I’m asking you to do in the next couple of days is to fly a “test pattern” lest your thoughts end up in the The Land Of Missing Barbie Shoes.

(That’s where obliterated binary code ends up, don’tcha know?!)

Just type a BRIEF comment (Testing 1, 2, 3…?) or some other silly stuff that goes missing from time to time (car keys? jigsaw puzzle pieces?) —  I don’t want you to labor over your keyboard, only to have your heartfelt comment vanish.

If you do get “the pop-up box,” just follow the prompts.  If you’ve forgotten your WordPress password, you’ll have an opportunity to think up a new one.  (And if you don’t encounter it, great!)

Don’t be alarmed… be appreciative.  Fighting cyber crime is a full-time job.

Many thanks to you — and WordPress.

Enjoying security,

~ Kim

P.S.  If all else fails, please leave a comment on my Facebook pageBy the way, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke!  I just wanted to be sure everything’s up and running for my giveaway later this week. :)  Take care.
