I didn’t post a blog post yesterday. It wasn’t because I didn’t have it done or I was grumpy or lazy. Or any other of the usual reasons. It was purely because of something silly. I spent far too much time yesterday in a flurry of complication.
I wanted to include a picture of a table in yesterday’s post and I had one already. Only I had lost this picture when my phone became possessed by Satan not too long ago. Thankfully, because of the latest advances in technology, this picture was on the internet. Unthankfully, I couldn’t retrieve it because I am far too educated in book smarts to figure out something practical. I couldn’t figure out how to do the screen capture on my laptop. I download a screen capture app and couldn’t figure that out. I was getting more and more frustrated.
Finally, after too many hours to admit, I put it away. I’d figure it out later.
And I did. This morning I realized I had the table in my family room and could just take a new picture of it and didn’t have to use the old picture at all.
On this fourth day of November, I am extraordinarily grateful for Occam’s Razor: Simpler theories should be considered before being traded for a more complex one. If only I was grateful for this yesterday.
