My life came to an abrupt halt when my husband died in 2014. You go through the motions and you meet your responsibilities and the days roll by. I made myself adjust to the lack of "the light of my life" burning bright and pushed forward back into a life.  We all go through similar situations and make our adjustments in our own way. The challenge isn't getting up each day or making a meal for one. The challenge is knowing your life you came to love and enjoy more than anything will never be the same.  The challenge is allowing yourself to be happy and enjoy life without feeling guilty that you are happy, sort of.

As the holidays approach, renewed traditions and perspective appear and a new comfort arrives. THAT comfort is not without the memories of times past but are enhanced by those past memories. They made me a better person. They are savored, cherished and longed for at key times.  What is important is that the "savoring and cherishing" needs to be in the here and now. My wish for all of my "old" friends here is to look beyond the day you are experiencing, raise the veil and see beyond it... see the best times, the most beloved ones in your life and share those feelings ... now.   I'm getting there and this Thanksgiving brings much gratitude for friends and family and of course my cats! :D (Big Grin)

I wish you many blessings and to give thought to the meaning to giving thanks.

I am not on here much, but what a surprise to see that I was awarded a DD for my photo, "I AM."  Thank you the ones involved in the process and to those who left such wonderful messages. While this honor does encourage me, the plight of all of our animals in this world is serious.  The population of the gorilla is estimated at 40,000, although it is declining due to habitat loss, as well as poaching. Please honor this photo and species of animal by supporting people who are actively working to save the gorillas and all other endangered species of this world as you can.

It is with a heavy heart that I share that my husband, Terry, went to heaven on this date. Nothing will ever be the same. I will not be here much, if at all as I take stock of my life as it has become. I am ok... well ok as one can be after the loss of my hubby whose face, smile, smell, laugh, jokes are ingrained in my mind/body for the last 36 years. But life goes on. The sun still shines, the birds still sing, our cats still play and love me every day. They all are just a little less bright without him....

Nick Stone, aka :iconshedboy68: passed away post surgical complications. No further details are available at this time. Nick's work speaks for itself. He will be greatly missed from the dA community. Our sincere

condolences to his friends and family.




Nick wrote the following in his journal just prior to his surgery in June:

I have been unwell for sometime now, and it's got to the stage where I am struggling to cope , so I wont be around as much as normal next week my dear friends, as I go into hospital (18th and surgery on the 19th) for major

 surgery. There is quite large risk involved, and without wanting to draw attention, or be dramatic, should anything  go wrong, I wanted to tell all my dear friends, my watchers and supporters, just in case I dont get another

chance, that I really do think the world of you all. You all gave me a purpose, and I will always love you for that.  Since my return to DA, I have met some beautiful people, have made some wonderful friends, friends for life,

 and learned so much. Not just about art, but about life as well. For those who I fell out with, there are no hard feelings from me, I still love you anyway and to those that I knowingly or unknowingly offended, im so sorry, and

 hope you can all find it in your hearts to forgive me. Its not easy for me to tell you guys this, its upsetting me and I really dont like drama, but thought it necessary this time around. Should I not be able to be with you

anymore, I have made arrangements with a very dear, and special friend of mine will let you know. So my lovelies, enjoy the beautiful art of my friends and works I admire, I will hopefully see you soon, but please know it's  been my utter privilege to have known you all. HeartHeartHeart








We had just become friends prior to his surgery. I admired his spirit and his art. And I admired him. RIP Nick.
