Actual Journal Beginning

I am just updating my journal, deleting the older, previous one.

Life has been hectic, but a good hectic.
~~~~~~
I keep 1-2 journals on deviantART, maximum, at any given time, usually, just one...and have done so for over two years.
~~~~~~
Book Recommendations:

~~~~~~
Film Recommendations:

DVD:

I thought this would be good for a laugh, the link was on my daughter's website  You have to try this, it is a riot.  I made it to 323.4 feet.  I am still going to try to get a few feet more.  Start by clicking the abominable snowman at the bottom, and hitting the penguin.

I come here, on occasion, to interact with a few friends and comment on art.  This is not where I choose to display my work.  I show it elsewhere.  
~~~~~~
Stop jumping to conclusions, as your assumptions get you nowhere.
~~~~~~
Quotations by Eleanor Roosevelt:
Reflection...is good for the soul...it helps one to sort out priorities...and focus on the most important and primary aspects of their life.  

A woman is like a tea bag- you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.
    
Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.
   
Do what you feel in your heart to be right - for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.
    
Friendship with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.
~~~~~~
We need to keep all victims of natural disasters in our thoughts, no matter where they are located.
~~~~~~
Please take a moment to give your thoughts to those hurting/in need...to those we might never meet…to people worldwide…wherever the country they reside in…whatever their culture…to those who have died…whether through war or famine…natural disaster, or natural death.  Reach out to someone, peacefully, in your own way.

~~~~~~
Remember, as mature adults, we can agree to disagree.
~~~~~~
We must stay true to our own ideals, and not the ideals of others; we must look inside ourselves, and find our sense of Self; and be strong, continue to read, be informed, and not follow what others want us to do.  
~~~~~~
Don't forget matteo  Stop by and give him hugs, teddys, and your support.  He more than deserves all of it, as equally as Jark, being one of the two original co-founders.  
~~~~~~
Please don't note me or send me comments in order to ask me for answers...I can offer none.

Thank you for asking! :hug::love:
You can't imagine a bigger contrast.....
Here in the UK it's cold and rainy, I'm sure you've heard of the floods. Luckily no floods where I am.

It's a transition period.

Hope you're well!

Just watched 'Twin Falls Idaho' (after having seen 'Northfork'). Amazing.
But I didn't understand the end in Twin Falls. Have you seen it?

I think in the ending, where the twins (boys) ride off on bikes, and where there is a sunlit field (am I right, I saw it a while ago?), is left up to us whether the ending is happy or sad. I think the director (one of the two actual twins who was in the film), leaves it up to us, by not going further on.

Twins conjoined, not by choice, but choosing to be separate (and, they were separate individuals, in actuality), wanting to physically be separated. Is there ever a happy ending, especially if one dies. Is it a given that they will sacrifice themselves for the other? It is a tough call, isn't it.

True. You've got a great memory. I agree with your interpretation on the ending :worship:

Yes, I am back to normal and my feet are running:-) A friend was in town so I saw her for a morning, then I am busy with planning the little one's 6th B-day which is rapidly approaching, THEN my 8 year old is doing an juried art show this coming weekend so I have been helping her put together her photography & oil paintings...whew, and oh yeah Mother's day is coming up - I am going to want to sleep in after a busy week.

And I am back with my photography :dance: I am participating in a group learning effort on a 30 day B&W photography challenge and I am loving it!!!!!
