A broken mac and thoughts on life...

Last week I was writing some emails on my 7 month old Powerbook and, having finished, closed it up and sat it down. When I came back to use it, it was off and when booted only showed a gray screen of nothing. I searched the web for a while looking for answers and tried the reasonable ones (seriously, are there people that take a part lap tops themselves?). Nothing worked, so I took it to the Apple Store on Friday. The sent it off and I hope to get it back soon....I miss the little guy. That baseball bat to the face life threw at me a while ago is still stinging but I'm working through it. I’m a thinker. I want to understand it all, but I know that’s not possible. That’s where knowledge ends and faith begins. It might be nice to have more control in what happens to us, to be able to mulligan our mistakes, to not let the decisions of others shatter our realities, to choose only the things that make us happy to meet us on this road we tread - It might be nice, but it wouldn’t be life. Life is isn’t so much about what circumstances we find ourselves in, but who we become in those tempests.

Stumbled across your blog while looking for 3D ideas. Great stuff! However, after reading your blog I think we are at similar junctures in the road of life.
I too have been hit in the face with a bat. I do not know if the stinging will ever stop.
The question I am asking msyself is this...
Our human nature is such that we seek out companionship, even though we fully realize the emotional risk. When we make that big leap we are joyous with anticipation. At first, there is generally trepidation but after time it wanes. But when we get the bat to the face it sucks, and generally comes as a surprise.
I am questioning now, whther to makle the leap again and risk another bat to the face. Or to journey down the road alone with the destiny of being a solitary thinker.

I started a response, but it was getting too long, so I just blogged it:)
