I woke early today.

I had an urge to continue a story I’d started on the blog some time ago in the past, only I couldn’t remember anything about the story where I could just continue writing now… I had to find it to get the details so I could pick up the pieces.

I got myself settled and comfortable, and started looking through each of the posts through the archives.

I’ve changed the theme back to an older one I used to use on the blog, and it doesn’t seem to work very well with mobile devices. Well, it doesn’t work well with my mobile device… some of the pictures have been stretched to be almost a mile tall, so my searching then required a lot of scrolling. And clicking the ‘older posts’ option became a bit monotonous, as I have the theme set to only show five posts per page.

I remember writing the post a while ago, so started my search in December 2019. I went through each and every post, backwards, scrolling, trying to see anything that would jump out at me about the post. I knew I knew the post, I just couldn’t remember the details.

Pins and needles developed in my hands. My legs went dead. My eyelids became heavy, and by the time I reached January 2016 the temperature on the battery on the mobile had reached an all time high I thought it was about to explode. Luckily for us both, a red message popped up on screen warning me I only had 15% of battery power remaining.

I had to end the search there; although one key word sprung to mind: ‘morning’.

I searched for morning (after searching all morning!!!), and found my post in March 2020. It was a self contained story which didn’t need adding to: Nova Luna.

And sometime soon, not now, I’m going to expand on that story. After this morning it would be a waste of time not to!

  2. Interesting twaddle, Tom! I haven’t seen many themes that look good on a mobile device, especially for those of us that use images. I am glad you found your post and understand how frustrating it can be going through years of archives. The theme you are using is very sleek and classy but it doesn’t show off your artistic side. 🎨🌈🍄😎
