A few months back, I thought to write about my meeting my 4x great Aunt Sylvie, a witch, who lived in the foothills of Kentucky. I'm speaking in the traditional sense of the word witch. The woman had 'powers' and could do things that 'normal' folk just can't without trickery of some sort.
(Notice the quotation marks. The words 'powers', and 'normal' are not of my choosing, but rather what family said. I'd rather think she had advanced abilities that others fail to develop, which wouldn't necessarily make her a witch.) However it has proven problematic, every time I attempt to submit it something happens that results in not posting it.
The first time I tried, the word file where I had carefully written the events out simply vanished without a trace. My desk may look like a random explosion has taken place, but my computer is very organized. That file was no where to be found. Although I did come up with a misfiled (?) picture of Aunt Sylvie laughing. How it got into a word file, I've no idea.
Another time, my keyboard decided to have a mind of its own. It simply would not type. It worked every place else but on the submission page. Finally frustrated, I closed out YGS - and what pops up on my screen? Aunt Sylvie's picture.
A week or so later, I had re-written my accounting, saved it, but left it open so that I could copy and paste it into the submission box. My mouse refused to copy and paste. Fine, then I'd just transcribe it into the box. Click 'submit' and - the screen went blank returning with a "Error 404" for the submission page. This time, no picture of Aunt Sylvie appeared, but I could swear I heard her wind chime like laugh.
Stuff like that happens every single time I try and submit it. Every. Time.
Although I met her over 40 years ago, I guess Aunt Sylvie just isn't ready to be 'discussed' by strangers. She didn't even care for family to talk about her much. (If you did it had better be nice, because somehow she ALWAYS knew.)
