08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

GOOD MORNING

NOVELIST,  MARCEL PROUST ONCE COMPOSED A THESIS WHERE HE MADE A FAVORABLE MENTION TO REALIZING THAT IN THE SMALLEST DETAIL THAT'S THROWN YOUR WAY,  IT CAN BE DISCOUNTED TO FALL BETWEEN THE CRACKS.  SHOWING US THE IGNORANCE WE SOMETIMES HAVE.
EVERYONE HAS GONE THROUGH SOME SORT OF OBSTACLE,  TRIPPED OVER A VINE IN THE GARDEN
... THINKING THEY'RE GOING TO DROWN IN LIFE ITSELF. (& THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN DOING-LIFE)
WHAT A DRAG IT WOULD BE IF PEOPLE ALWAYS LOOKED UP TO THE SKY TO FIND THE TALLEST BUILDING & NOT THE SUNSET.  TRIPPING ON THAT VINE ON THE PATH IS LIFE'S WAY OF REMINDING YOU TO SEE WITH DIFFERENT EYES,  SO (MAYBE) YOU CAN APPRECIATE THE UNDERBELLY OF A WILD FLOWER OR THE WEATHERED ALABASTER LEAVES AT YOUR FEET.
(or In one case for me,  I was just 1 mile from completing a full circuit of cycling
when I overheard the weeping guitar of Eric Clapton @ rehearsal which wouldn't normally be enough to break my concentration.  I popped my earphones out & glanced in the direction the music was coming from.  Even though I'm not a fan of his,  the guitar work was stellar.  I turned my head straight ahead ... & I inhaled a yellow colias butterfly.)
(( GRIN )) SO AT ANY EXTENT,  LOOK FOR THE MESSAGE (s) OF EVERY POINT YOU COME BY IN A LIFETIME
... & FOR FUCK SAKE ... FALL IN LOVE WITH THE SIMPLE EARTHLY PLEASURE'S NOW & THEN !

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes,
but in having new eyes."
-Marcel Proust


I FAVOR THESE WORDS TODAY & I HAVE FOUND MY OWN LIFE-CHANGING DISCOVERIES
... TO FIND YOURS -JUST OBSERVE.

I WISH YOU ALL ADVENTURE (BE SAFE !)
ALWAYS,
A. PRINCE

PS/.   I'VE BEEN A BIT FORCED TO TAKE BABY STEPS IN DEVIATING MY PHOTOGRAPHY WORKS, SADLY,   I'VE LOST MY BEST FRIEND CHRISTOPHER FROM HIGH SCHOOL & IT SHOOK ME TO THE CORE.  & ALTHOUGH MY HEART IS BUSTED & OPEN ... IT IS A WILD HEART - & A DEVIANT HEART !
BUT PLEASE KNOW THAT MALE STOCK IS COMING SOON,  JUST ALLOW ME TIME TO FIND MY RHYTHM,  DO POST PRODUCTION & UPLOAD ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPH'S, AS WELL AS SOME SCRUMPTIOUS OBJECT STOCK.
FOR NOW, I HOPE YOU'RE ENJOYING WHAT I'M BRINGING IN MY LATEST STOCK PHOTOGRAPH'S:
THE EMPIRE COLLECTION

deepest sympathy on losing your dear old friend. i have not had that sort of pain yet, i can only imagine. but i am glad you are strong and can keep your clarity!
it took me a long time in my early twenties to regain my ability to live intimately with the beautiful detail of my natural surroundings... had it as a kid.. got consumed by trivial things and damn near lost my mind! this is a good message you are sharing, coming from a true believer!

i'm really glad to see you post a journal, and especially to hear you will be posting more awesome stock again! n_n cheers AP!
