Repair Efforts

11/13/13 Wednesday at Fair Play, SC (Carolina Landing-TT)

This morning we drove to Seneca AGAIN, bringing my computer to Staples for help.  Their computer person got the keyboard to work some, after attaching an external keyboard, then it went crazy like before.  I will need to order another laptop keyboard (it’ll take 5 days) so we need to wait until we’re at Yemassee, SC.  The motherboard may also be affected.

On our way home I texted Justin for advice.  Once we got back to our RV he helped us get to a diagnostic screen.  We ran the tests, the motherboard seems fine.  John noted we could buy an external keyboard (for the meantime) from Goodwill.  So-ANOTHER trip to Seneca.  Bonus: we found a pair of jeans for me there too.

At home I excitedly plugged in the keyboard.  Dang-it wouldn’t recognize the external keyboard until I’d wrangled it into Windows, then it soon started responding to random input. Must be more problems than the keyboard.  Bummer.

Since the diagnosis could involve more than a couple days we decided to wait until we’re at Yemassee.  So I get to struggle on John’s computer until then.  Thus you won’t see much blogging for awhile.

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
