We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
~ Will Durant
I’m guardedly optimistic that I’m nearing the end of the technology battle I’ve been engaged in. Last night, as a pasta sauce made with this year’s tomatoes simmered on the stove, from down in the woman rose a celebratory woo hoo! as I opened my recovered Lightroom catalog and successfully linked it to my recovered photos.
It was a magical moment worthy of the dance performed when I came upstairs to stir the sauce a few minutes later. Worthy too of a second performance, ungraceful and contorted but oh-so-joyful, later in the evening.
Today, additional recovery, tidying up and sorting; and getting a cloud backup set up in addition to the two external drives that are fallible and don’t like to be dropped.
I feel the call of routine and habit as I prepare to put this behind and return to more enjoyable pursuits.
