I haven’t been unintentionally silent. I wrote something about the pope’s interview this morning, but it vanished into the ether.
You see, I have a new laptop, gift of a reader who credits my writing with moving him “beyond conservative Catholicism.” This is most gratifying, as I often feel like I am tilting at windmills, or pissing in the wind, or (fill in your favorite cliche for “futile endeavor”). That anyone would value what I have to say enough to give me a laptop is really moving (and this was one of two offers, not to mention those who offered to make a monetary donation).
Thank all of you.
But this is a MacBook, and I only have experience, and very limited skills, with Windows. So I have been having problems getting it to do things that once were so easy, like, oh, checking my dashboard (the Safari search thing shuts down, every time) or writing a post (ditto; I am writing at the library).
I think I am going to make an appointment at the Apple store in Akron on Wednesday, my day off…
