08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

What is it about life, that sometimes I just don't feel like living it anymore?  At age 36 this is a disturbing thought in my mind.  But I feel trapped by a lot of things, I'm not going to go into it in any detail, but life is like "ho hum" anymore.
I don't even seem to be enjoying photography as much as I used to.  I think that if it wasn't for the games I play on my ipad or MLPFiM to give me some cheer I really wouldn't know why I bother with anything.
Sounds like depression I know, but that doesn't seem like the only thing going on here with me. I think I have to do some serious praying, there isn't much else I can do at this point.
:(
Anyway to all who continue to leave nice comments on my photography, thank you! :heart: I really appreciate that and it does lift me up a bit.

edit- Which reminds me, I have some new photos, but I haven't processed them yet. Hopefully I can get that up soon.
And I might have become a little more down today after hearing my cousin (2nd cousin?) Donald passed away today. I knew him not particularly well but he was a very sweet man, energetic, and made an Elvis CD for me after a visit not too long ago. Then...he just died suddenly after moving just earlier this month.  *sigh* That won't add cheer to your day, that's for sure.

I am sorry for your loss. My brother recently lost his father in law. My nephew age 3 didn't understand and thought he was still in the water where they found him and when at the park ran towards the water and had he made it to the steps which are steep he'd have ended up probably tumbling down the cement steps and breaking his neck.

Thank you for your condolences. :) I'm very sorry to hear about the father-in-law...I was a bit confused by the story are you saying he drowned and the little 3 yr old tried to rescue him?  That was amazing and brave for the kid.

Well he was suppose to have drown like a week prior and was already buried. They told him he was in heaven and he thought because he had drowned and they'd mentioned in the water he assumed he just had to find water or the river and he'd be able to get him out and back.

You are welcome. My grandma wanted to not have feeding tubes and thus ended up starving for days until they moved her and she passed.
