Hey, Grant! I hope you're doing well. :rose:

Hail Lisa!

Yes, I'm healthy, happy and in a great place emotionally. I am looking forward to getting back out of the house. Have my second covid shot in five days from now. How are you doing? Are you creating art? Your Light is amazing and admired Lisa!



I'm glad to hear it! :D

I'm okish, considering. Starting to work again on Monday so there's that.

I've been creating, yeah, loads actually but I haven't really shared much here (yet).


Good to see you around again.

Please stay and see how DA has changed to the positive. One year ago, everyone found themselves lost with Eclipse - now it has evolved. Lots of DA members have come back now. Please take this decision as well. You are such a positive human being and you, yourself, know that it won't be any positive without the negative. You can only cherish the one when you know the other. Sometimes it needs to let go off old habits to start something new. So, let go off Classic DA, embrace Eclipse, embrace all the nice people here, cherish the beautiful art, let go off bitterness of losing something old, so deeply accustomed. Help healing the world. It needs such a bright light as yours. :heart:


Thank you for your profoundly beautiful words and thoughts. I appreciate your sharing your Light with me. It is my best interest to move on from DA. My mental health is much better than being disappointed every single time I login to DA.

eclipse took numerous groups that I volunteer within from dozens of daily visitors to an long empty hallway of nothing but chirping crickets. I was like a switch was thrown and all the group visitors just faded away into the wind.

I wish to encourage you in all of your epic endeavors. I wish you the best of health, prosperity and success. You are an Angel with Wings. It has been my pleasure to work in the same Light as yourself.

Most kindly,


You are very welcome and I agree. It is your time to experience something new, so you must let go of the old. But be also sure, that nothing is baken for you - everything and every place wherever you decide to go with art will have their positive and their negative sides.

A lot of people have come back here to DA, because they suffered shipwreck on other sides. But before, you have to make your own picture, what might be best for you and your happiness to progress in growing yourself.

Wishing you all the best. By the way, are you gifted with clairvoyance? As ordinary people are usually not supposed to see my ... well, just say "hi" again when you will pay your friends here another visit. :hug:

I knew I was missing you. So sorry to see you go. :sadangel:
