‘Mornin’ everyone, or whatever time of day it is wherever you are …

This was going to be a whine-a-log.

I got up this morning feeling sorry for myself because iof my health problems (two heart attacks, a quadruple coronary bypass during which I suffered a stroke which has left me with bilateral hemispatial neglect, together with various vision and other problems such as, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Well, having your chest carved open top to bottom will do that to you.

I fired up my iMac and got ready to start dictating only to discover the new Apple Mavericks operating system doesn’t like Nuance Dictate, which I use because of my vision difficulties.

I went searching online and, with great difficulty, found a workaround, and Apple has Dictate, its own voice to text system. But you have to jump through various hoops too get it going – – I did, at least.

I’m ‘writing’ this on an old XP laptop which also has a Dragon voice translation software on board, and I plan to  divest myself of the iMac at the earliest opportunity.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch house, I decided to act on something I’ve been preaching since the Year Dot –  namely; the only thing all of us has – male, female, young, old,gay, straight, black, white or multi-coloured is:  the single moment of time we occupy at the moment.

Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow never comes.

So I’m sitting here right now with the sun  blazing through my window on this freezing cold day on Vancouver Island, BC, thinking how lucky I am.

I have a wonderful wife and daughter who love me, most, if not all, of my faculties and the will and determination to keep on truckin 🙂
