Slowly Coming Back from 4-year Absence

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 7, 2018, 4:29 PM

As the title states, I have been away from :deviantart: for far too long.
Throughout the last several weeks I have been analyzing the
events that were going in my life. It just hasn't been a thrill ride
and nothing really major has been going on.

I have been working at a different full time job, working long nights
for the last four years. The workplace hasn't really changed except
for the drama. It keeps sneaking up on me in new ways and
about a month ago was just the last straw.

But that is not even the icing on the :cake:!

Towards the end of January has become one the most
significant turning points of my life
For the last month, I have been on a mini sabbatical from
my full-time job.

On January 17th, my mother had a brain aneurysm.
She was released from the hospital after having surgery
on the 1st of February.

She survived it for the most part. However she was on strict bed rest
for about week after her surgery. So I took off from my job
to be around so she wouldn't fall or something worse.

I am so thankful that she is able to wake up
every single day.

So while she's been taking it easy and trying to get more active
I have been getting back to what I have lost over the years - 


As I am writing this journal entry, I am slowly getting back into that
rhythm when I started my :deviantart: page almost 9 years ago.
I didn't realize how much I've missed coming to my page. Just browsing
through all the works of art in my groups, the notes, & alerts I get from
people looking at my page.

New people and long time friends browsing through my artwork,
liking and adding them to their favorites. 
I missed you all.

I know I will be starting from scratch trying to build up
my presence on my page. I do not mind it though.
I'm looking forward it.

If anyone reads my entry all the way through, thank you.

So, it's Day 6 and I have six drawings posted so far.

Happy New Year, 2013!

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 1, 2013, 9:02 PM

This year I am coming back with a vengeance. First of all, I would like to deeply apologize for
my severe lack of activity here on dA. It's 2013, a brand new year. And I am going to make
sure I will log on as much as as I can. That is my resolution.

I have a lot downtime right now so be prepared for new artwork, photography, as well as
other surprises that I will be posting.

Thank you everyone. :) :hug:

At least the year end on a sweet note - - so let's start 2012 with a bang.

Coming to An End

Fri Nov 25, 2011, 7:39 PM
Profile | Gallery | FNPhotography

About a year ago, I have created a group to showcase a certain side of photography.
:icongadget-photos: is a photo group where you can show your artistic photo skills.
Showing personal electronic "gadgets" such as photos with computers, iPods, cell phones, old radios, cameras - most important things you just cannot live without.
Of course, that is not limited to just those domestic objects - architectural clocks, musical instruments can be accepted as photos.

However the group didn't seem to pick up like I wanted.  So, it is my decision that the group will close at the end of this year.

I really want to thank the members who joined and supported the group throughout the process:

Also, I really want to give a special thanks to :iconzipercoode: for the concept of the group.

Again, thank you all so very much. It was a real experience.
