Yesterday–computer announced that five of my passwords had been compromised here in Internet World.
I dutifully proceeded to change them.
No problemo, right?
This morning your blogger accidentally plugged in the wrong end of the camera-to-computer cord and froze the screen.
Figured out how to reboot the beloved bleep-bleep-bleep machine.
Upon reaching sign-in portal, said computer requested my password.
I airly typed in the oh-so-familiar password.
Wrong password, the computer archly responded, raising its eyebrow suspiciously at possible hacker.
Wrong password? But I have utilized this password forever!
I typed again.
Wrong one, girlfriend.
Then an unfamiliar screen popped up requesting the password for live.com or some similar address.
Oh, oh. That sounded familiar to the compromised password which I changed yesterday. What had I changed it to? Ummm…?
Had written down all the other changed passwords, but this one…?
The computer got tired waiting for my memory and another screen arose.
“Wait a minute” it said while a white wheel circled round and round on a blue screen of hopefully not death.
Eventually Mr. Computer accessed backup information and announced a text message would be sent to my email account.
Unfortunately said email account is not used regularly.
I hurried to iPad and attempted to log into rarely-used email account.
An announcement on the main page stated: We are aware of the issues with our e-mail login page are actively working on a fix.
Is this really happening this morning?
But I HAVE to use the computer NOW!
Fortunately, I accessed email, provided the secret code, reset my password, and wa-la here we are!
What does spirituality have to do with computer snafus? When things go wrong?
I am sure there is something perfectly smart and conceptual and wise that I could type–but this very moment the Holy isn’t revealing anything. I’m back to beginner’s mind and don’t know a darn thing.
Do any of you want to give it a try?
Tell us what spirituality has to do with computer snafus.
Maybe the Holy will speak through you today.
I think it has to do with our attitude, our way of perceiving, our feelings…but nothing is coming here except gratitude that the damn machine is cooperating. Thank you, Universe. Phew.
