In praise of mystery and weirdness

We were at Nye Beach in Newport for a long weekend, and I'm happy to report that the above house still remains as seen in the above picture. It's locked up, decrepit, and seems to be full of absolutely great old stuff. I'd love to get my hands on that stuff, of course, but I hope this place doesn't get torn down or gentrified into a day spa. I love the way it sits, intact, in the middle of all the trendy shops. We need our mystery!

A less entrancing mystery for me right now is why my computer is in a coma. Please think good thoughts so that my daughter's friend who is a professional computer-fixer will restore it and all my precious files to life. (I thought this only happened to other people...)

Any way, despite current glitches, I want to wish you all Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year!

I hope Santa brought you an external hard-drive so you can back up your files in the future! Don't feel too bad, tho; we all seem to learn this lesson the hard way... May your files be restored and your computer awakened!

Thanks, Diana! Santa didn't give me an external hard drive but you can bet I'll be gifting myself with one very soon!

I appreciate your good wishes!

Happy Holidays Serena!
