Loss

I lost my laptop today. At first I harboured hopes of recovery, which turned out false. Then I cursed and swore within me, then blamed others for my loss, but I realised that I couldn’t push the blame. It was my carelessness. Afterwards, I was surprisingly calm. I don’t know why, but I supposed I faced up to the fact that there was no use dwelling on the matter any more. And in comparison to others’ losses, mine was nothing. In the wake of natural calamities and man made disasters which yielded loss of lives, property, health, etc, my loss was insignificant. Still, it was still a loss ’cause the laptop was of value to me. The laptop cost $864 but I can’t put a value to the contents. And I don’t know what I miss till I miss them.
