Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

An Important Message to My Readers

Dear friends, loved ones, and faithful readers  —

As I mentioned in my Card of the Week (and on Facebook), yesterday, on Monday, my hard drive completely crashed and died.  The whole story is like one long good news/bad news joke.

Bad news: when I booted up Monday morning, EVERYTHING was gone and a total wipe to reinstall my OS was required.

More bad news: the OS would not install because the disk was fried, necessitating a new disk drive.

The good news: I had backed up everything last week onto an external hard drive.

More good news: Everything from the hard drive looks like it moved back over successfully.

Bad news: Who the heck knows where it all is? Files are jumbled all over the place, applications are in totally weird places, and many are not working properly (if at all).  This is especially affecting my email.

Why I’m telling you all this:
Well, I certainly welcome your sympathy, good thoughts, and assorted forms of computer healing and possibly Reiki.

But mainly, I want you to know that I have LOST all email from the past week, totally gone.. and any and all email before that (for the past 18 years) is in limbo, with restoration uncertain at this point.

So.

If you have emailed me about an appointment, a project, a class, or anything else, please have patience.  I am hoping it is somewhere in the tens of thousands of files that actually did move from the backup.  BUT: if your email was in the past 7 days and you need an answer, PLEASE re-send.

Truly, this is a nightmare that I thought I was prepared for, and maybe there wil be an easy solution once I kind of get the hang of my external hard-drive’s logic.

But meantime, thanks for your patience, and know I will try to get back to you just as soon as I can.  Blessings!

    Oh Beth, Good luck! I’m sending you clear and untangled intentions. May your Hard Drive bee like the Fastigiate Hornbeam Tree (see photo)

    , extending right out to the sky but all meeting in one central and sturdy trunk–and let’s not forget the roots.

    Beth, my sympathy! I went through the same thing recently, and it is so disorienting! I hope everything gets sorted soon!

    Must be a reason… something exciting this way comes to you!
