The seasons change fitfully, the employment sagas churn [although, fortunately, the gods and sea monsters have not yet made appearances], and for each unplanned technology purchase there are several ancillary items which abruptly become needful.
I have told many a student not to change operating systems or software editions before a major project begins [much less, in media res], and not to let their skills get out of sync with workplace technology. Oh, and how the boots chafe when they are suddenly on your own feet!
From Snow Leopard to Mavericks in an afternoon was a bit of a shock, but doing the new Keynote on a new hand-held device was even more exciting. Does it do new, useful, things? Yes, but try and find a dongle at a conference when the default is still VGA or a USB remote?

She has the patch of sunlight; he has the crumpled paper and the toy….
I know I heard the red-winged blackbirds recently. Flocks of robins have been poking at the mud patches. Tonight I heard the foxes barking.
