In Which I Dream About India and then Lose Everything

I composed a post today. It was all written up. It was lovely and beautiful and expressed my dreams of journeying to India one day, my smitten state about the subcontinent. There were photos. The spacing was cooperating (you know how blogger can be). I was merely highlighting everything to change the font.

And then I deleted it. All of it. Accidentally.
(Multi-tasking at work can be hazardous.)

Forgive me. I'm grieving the loss of a post I really liked but feel unable to recreate. One I'd been marinating for a while.

Here's a taste of what you missed (and I lost):







I refuse to see this as a sign that I'll never make it there. I will. And the going and experiencing will fill me so much deeper than any silly old blog post (even if I really liked it).

Really? Seriously?? I NEVER knew this about you. :) I believe you will make it there someday too. :)

I'm sorry you lost your post. But, may I take this opportunity to officially request to be your India travel partner? We would have an AMAZING time...

We should go together! Scot and I REALLY want to go to India. When I met Scot he said he was going to go for his 30th birthday ... sadly, that didn't happen, but India is absolutely on our list of places to visit. I'm sorry about your post. I hate when that happens! :(

What a bummer loss! I hope you get there someday.

I HATE when that happens. Something you can try, should it happen again, close the internet window or go to your dashboard as quickly as possible. Sometimes blogger saves the entry and when you go to the dashboard you may not get the latest you wrote, but most of it will still be there (I have a lot of experience accidentally deleting my post :)
