So the posts might be weird for a bit. I'll hit up my boys for their photos and hope for duplicates of some (Africa, especially). I fear the old ones are the goners though and I must say it's kind of heartbreaking. Another lesson in detachment I guess.
I've been reading Dorothy Day's memoirs (and really, so much wonderful stuff in there, but it's not a quick read) and she speaks often of the "duty of delight." I'd better go reread that part again. So, this Sunday, I will ponder that instead of the data loss, I will work on detaching from my control panic and instead on how to find and practice the joyful duty, a la Dorothy Day.
