No, I have not died…


This can happen only to a monkey who is not tech savvy. I did something only monkeys do: pressed the wrong button and all my half-finished drafts that I was loud-mouthing about (remember?)  D-I-S-A-P-P-E-A-R-E-D!!


This was my first reaction.

Uh-oh, something’s wrong.

Followed by:

This can’t be happening. All gone? WHAT!!

Next I went outside and kicked a few rocks (no pix available).

Then I drank 3 cups of tea (no pix available).

Finally I put an ad on Craigslist to the effect: Monkey messed up WordPress blog. Ate drafts. Please help. No money. Only good karma. Will pay it forward.

Guess what? Tons of folks wrote back. TONS!! I got back emails saying “How can I help?” “Whats wrong?” “Send link” etc. Then one very fine fellow  patiently helped me figure out where I goofed up. Sadly the damage cannot be undone but never mind, I am deeply gratified to know there is sweetness  in this world.

This is where I am now.

Lost drafts=renewed faith in humanity.


Never tell your resolution before hand

– John Selden

In other words no need to blab about what you are planning to do. Just do it for God’s sake. GO NIKE!!

Yo folks! It’s good to be back. Will post as soon as my head settles.

Cheers !


  1. Welcome back from no-blog-land, Shona. Did you see me drifting out there, mumbling syllables to myself??? Can’t post to save my life. You take it easy 🙂

  3. Scary experience!!
    Love the funny photos. I’ve made those faces myself, on occasion. 🙂


  4. Hurrah for helpful people! Great photos and a heartwarming story, although I’m very sorry to learn that what you did was undoable. Still, you seem to be looking on the bright side, and are back on the job like a trooper. Go you!
