Saturday's Sentiments Glinda the Good Witch Gets It: There is no place like home!
The quotation, "There is no place like home," is mostly associated with Glinda, the Good Witch, from the Wizard of Oz.
A figurine rendered in her likeness can be seen in the photograph atop this entry (which was taken in 2016, when she posed for a photo-shoot).
In any event, this quote has been on my mind because I work from home and there is no place like it, but I have had my ability to do this disrupted for over a week.
I mentioned this in this past Tuesday's entry here on Blogger, when I thought my ability to work on my on-line endeavors, including issues with the publishers of my Words In Our Beak book series,
as well as issues with uploading my kaleidoscopic images to Fine Art America had been resolved, but alas, after publishing the aforementioned entry, my Internet was down again — for a few more days — due to the same thing: power failures at Verizon.
One of the most frustrating things with this was missing out on certain job opportunities that were time sensitive and required that I be on my landline with my computer to submit materials to the parties who were interested in what I am offering.
Another frustrating thing was not being able to access emails in a timely fashion to respond in a responsible manner. However, I'm grateful that I was able to receive help from Chris Deatherage during the outage.
As you may recall, Chris is the one who edited as well as formatted the book series seen here and he designed my website, patriciayoungquist.com.
During the outage, he was able to check my email on my behalf so that he could alert me by phone if any matter was urgent. Moreover, he uploaded images to Fine Art America for me.
In any event, Verizon seems to have fixed the issues and I should be able to catch up on things in the coming days, including posting what was once award winning content to this blog.
Thanks for hanging in there with me, dear reader.
