Hello everyone. 
In the past week I have experienced two noteable 'seconds'. Firstly I was awarded my second DD for which I have given thanks already. Also I have passed my second anniversary of being here on Deviant Art. I am still enjoying my time very much with you amazing people. I know some people have moved on but there are always new people joining who I am happy to meet and welcome as I was welcomed so warmly two years ago. Two years eh? Doesn't time fly when you are enjoying yourself? It does for me. I hope I have become a better photographer and a better editor in my time here. I know I am better in many other ways. 
In my profile there is a brief note about me. Well for the last few years I have been exploring the UK and taking pictures of my travels. I decided to get to know my own country after years of neglecting it. I have found many magical places and met many wonderful people along the way. I am so happy to share these experiences with you here. I always try to do more than just take a picture. I try to capture how I felt at the time or to tell a story. They are meant to be more than just photographs. From your many lovely comments I think I succeed in this from time to time. :)
I love getting your comments. I like favs too (who doesn't?) but I love comments. It is how I met many of you. We ended up chatting following a comment. It is you who make this place such a refuge for me and a place I love to spend my time. Thank you all for that. :heart:

Did any of you see the solar eclipse yesterday? There was too much cloud where I was so if you saw it I am envious of you ;)

Yesterday I had one of the little things happen that i look forward to every year. At lunch time I went back to my car. When I opened the door warm air came out and hit me in the face. It is a sure sign that we are out of Winter and into Spring. I like all seasons and all weather but I think Spring is my favourite time of year. My garden has Crocuses and Daffodils blooming and tulips to come. I love the beginning of the circle of life that happens each Spring. :love:

I would like to thank those of you who asked after my health following my recent journal. In short I have a condition called Labarynthitis which is very debilitating when I have an episode. 
www.nhs.uk/conditions/labyrint…
I have had this for about two years and I manage it with medication. Last week I had an acute attack which lasted four days and was very unpleasant. It is very bad for me as I am usually very active and this completely floors me. I am recovering now and should be fine again in a matter of days. 
I am really am thankful for the warm wishes and love I have been sent. It certainly helps me when I am sitting here feeling sorry for myself. 

So thank you again, you wonderful people, for making my time here so enjoyable. I can't tell you what your friendship and love mean to me especially in recent times. So here is my small way to show my thanks. A feature of your art. Please have a look at these pictures and visit the artists. They are all lovely people and will love to meet you :hug:

Hello Lawrence.
First of all my apologies for taking a while to thank you for including me in your feature.
You're right about meeting people on here. I find it very sad when someone I have talked to for a few years suddenly disappears. One of my friends  suffered a stroke and seemed to be recovering well. He was still managing to do the occasional painting but then suddenly his account was deleted. I don't know what has happened to him and that saddens me.
It is nice to meet new people though. I love to be able to say 'I have friends I talk to in such and such country'. It does help to broaden our interests.

I had to see a specialist a few years back and was told I might possibly have labarynthitis. I was suffering with vertigo and tinnitus. After I gave up work and stopped using a head set (I worked in a call centre) the symptoms quietened down. The tinnitus is still with me so I know how bad this can get.
Keep up the good work snapping up our country. We have some beautiful scenery and it's good to share it with others.

Take care

Deb :hug:

Oh poor you Deb :hug:
Luckily I don't have the tinnitus. Your sounds like Mennieres disease which they keep thinking I have but I don't have any of the aural symptoms. 

I love meeting people from all over the world or down the road. It is always odd when people disappear and can be very sad but I guess there are many reasons for people moving on from health issues to finance to just moving on. 
Whatever the reason you can make and lose very good friends here. 
I guess the positive side is I keep finding new and interesting people all the time so it keeps me going. 
This is so much more than an art site to me 
:hug:

You could be right it might have been Mennieres the consultant said. I know it was foreign sounding :lol:
DA does seem to be a multi functional site :nod: Nice to get to know you Lawrence. Is the title real or one you have given yourself? :hug:

I hope you are feeling much better my friend, I can't imagine what you must go through but illnesses are no fun whatever they are, are they! Medication can be a blessing and a curse because of the side effects, but hopefully they help ease your symptoms at least!! :huggle:  

Thank you so much for including my work here with this wonderful feature of works, you are so very kind!! :heart: 

Take care, and I'm glad you are in recovery and I send my well wishes and hugs to you! :hug:sss
