Nano is back

Since events from my past have left their mark, I absolutely hate loss. I about go nuts when I lose little things I need, like my tiny little charger for my Linux camera battery. But then when I find it again it gives me such a rush that relief and joy wash over me till I feel like I’m snuggling in a warm micro fiber blanket.

I made a special trip to Lethbridge tonight to find me a new nano. I was relieved when I found on the old sales receipt that the warranty hadn’t expired, so in to Costco I went, hoping they’d exchange it for another one. Costco has succumbed to Best Buy, and no longer carries Apple products. But they showed me on my receipt where the phone number was and said if I would phone, they would guide me through the process.

Over to Best Buy. I was just mad. And the clerk who was helping me was not helping at all. In fact, I found him to be quite annoying. Then after all his looking he sold me the wrong one. At home I dialed the number and a nice man guided me through it, and it worked. My nano is alive again. You have to push the center button AND the menu at the same time to reset it. Tomorrow I’ll return the new generation one that I’m sure would make me mad every time I touched it. And now I’ll turn myself right side out, and get back to thinking about others.


Loss turns me inside out. Are the big ones easier to move through than the little annoying ones? I’ll think about that while snuggling in my blanket tonight. Brain attachments cross over and what is little feels big, and what should be big is unattached. Loss makes a person detach. Finding makes life ah so good.

My nano

My iPod nano just died.  I loved that thing.  I don’t want a new generation nano, but I may be forced as I can’t imagine traveling without one, or being without it in the middle of the night when I need my favorite audio to help me relax and get back to sleep.    I don’t need proof that the scriptures are true.  I just need nano.  As I hear the words and the spirit bears witness all throughout of truth, and fills my soul with peace and hope, I know for absolute certain what I know.  Elder Ballard, you said it right.
