Subject: Posts lost, posts rewritten

You know those days when you create a post that took you an hour of wandering because you were wanting to put together a particular collection of sites that inspire you ...

And you worked away happily because you knew it would be useful as a resource and reminder in future ...

And you went to this site that promised good photography and something odd happened and you were trapped there by an error message and so you selected control alt delete and EVERYTHING closed and you lost that blog post you had almost completed ...

Coincidently, Ani DeFranco's song Untouchable Face was playing and much as I prefer not to use bad language here, you can imagine that something like the chorus of that song might have been said as I lost all I had written and researched... and the coincidence of the song playing ... the song that continued to play here despite every other page closing ... didn't make me smile at all ... (Later: thanks Alison, the song title I had was the other, less polite title)

Starting again ...

I was looking for inspiring sites to get me and my camera working together again after this horrible flu/cold emptied me ... after a Christmas break that doesn't feel real due to me locating myself in the northern hemisphere where, weatherwise, all is wrong over Christmas which is really about summer and long holidays, Central Otago and happy people.

I had begun my search with an old favourite of mine, opening Sabrina Ward Harrison's site . Her story of all this is inspiring.

She led me into Hearts and Bones and there was an interesting interview with his arty family here .

Then I remembered Paris Parfait's post about a year of living gorgeously and links found over there.

WorkHappy.com turned my head with this quote by Steve Jobs and lured me in to for a read.
I'm convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.

If it wasn't midmorning, I would definately raise a glass to the idea of perseverance paying off when establishing a business ...

Okay, I think this is all.

It goes without saying that my first post was far better ...

The song is called Untouchable Face ... so really you didn't have to say Fuck at all if you didn't want too :P

I had that as the title and that was what she was singing as I realised I had lost all.
