Leap Day & FeaturesWell today is the last day of February, leap day this year. I can't believe that tomorrow it's March already! Seems like Spring should be just around the corner now, I know some places already have blossoms peeking out, but today we are experiencing our first big storm of the winter. Ironic really, we've had such a mild winter this year, hardly no snow at all, then on this extra day of the month we get slammed. The weather service is calling for up to 10+ inches by this evening. White-out conditions. Heavy, wet, packy snow. I went out earlier this morning, before it got so bad, but then decided to take the rest of the day off of work after I almost got into 2 accidents from other vehicles pulling out in front of me and sliding/spinning all over the road. So it's kind of nice to be able to hunker down inside, wrapped in a blanket, enjoying a book and some computer time, and just generally being lazy.
Hope everyone is doing well.
I'm thinking of hosting a photography con

w00t! Many Thanks....
So far in the last 24 hours I've received a wonderful response to my last blog over at CloseToNature, which was pretty much begging for points and asking members to advertise the donation pool so that we can upgrade the SuperGroup status when it expires on the 19th. But hey, I want to keep being able to do themes and featuring member's/people's artwork!
As of last night, we needed 2,136 points to reach our goal.
As of right now, we only need 614 more!
And it was kinda funny... and creepy lol... When I logged on this morning, 4 people had donated so far. But what was funny/creepy/weird were the amounts donated.
- the 1st person donated 1000 points
- the 2nd person donated 100 points
- the 3rd person donated 10 points
- the 4th person donated 1 points
Descending multiples (I think that's what you'd call if) of 10. Weird!
Anyway, thanks so much for everyone who's donated so far! I think we will be able to reach our goal now.

THE WATER’S FOOTSTEPSA part of poem by Sohrab Sepehri,the Iranian poet and painter
It is not our business to fathom the mystery of rose
Perhaps our business is to float within the magic of the rose
Camp behind wisdom
Wash our hands in the ecstasy of a leaf and waling to the table
And be born again when the sun rises in the mornings
Let's allow our excitement to fly
Let's pour water upon the perception of space, color, sound and the window of flowers
Let's set heaven between two syllables of existence
Let's is fill and empty our lungs with eternity
Let's lift down the burden of knowledge from the shoulders of the swallow
Let's take back our name from the cloud
Let's mount to the height of kindness of the wet feet of rain
Let's open the door open the door to mankind, light, plants and inspects
Or business is perhaps
To run between the lotus flower and the century after the sound of truth

I wish you some sunny and springlike Easter Holidays!
Soon i am back again!
Hello my friends!
I miss you all so much, and I miss to be here. I have no computer at the moment. It is on service. They will put a better processor and more working memory. I've been without a computer for a few days now, and if I'm lucky, I get it back this weekend. I really miss my computer, and I miss my photoshop! I miss Deviantart, and I miss you and your wonderful art!
For the moment I am visited my mom and I use her computer to read my email and make this journal.
I just want you to know, and I will soon come back!
How can I thank for all wonderful gifts from you my friends! You are amazing!
I have received another wonderful gift!! 1 month Sub from DeniseGarbis

Beautiful Couples In Life And In Art - Part FourIn a time when nothing is more certain than change, the attachment of two people to one another has become a rare thing, but just this increases its beauty.
All of us want to love and to be loved, but this is not easy at all!:icontruesmiles:
Love doesn't means only "I Love You", love means commitment and respect, a strong shoulder who can support your head at any moment, a warm heart who can receive your joys, an energetic hand which can relieve all pain and depression, a mysterious smile during a dance, which always conjures the First Dance, but above all, love is the only feeling that shines over time when our hair is white and our wrinkles talk about memories.
This is love and life, this is what all of us dream to have and to share this is what we have to respect and cherish.
I had the chance to meet some beautiful couples in our dA community and I have the pleasure to dedicate a series of journals to them.
I want to do this because I want to let them know how
MY thanks, Christmas Greetings and a Feature:iconxmasballs01plz::iconxmasballs02plz::iconxmasballs01plz::iconxmasballs02plz::iconxmasballs01plz::iconxmasballs02plz::iconxmasballs01plz::iconxmasballs02plz::iconxmasballs01plz::iconxmasballs02plz:
First, I want to thank all my watchers and friends for the faves, comments and features. It seems there is never enough time in the day for everything I have to do. You are all valued even if it doesn't seem that you are. I greatly appreciate everything.
Life has been very complicated this year. For over a year our little granddaughter came to live with us. My daughter has been through a bit, including a bout with drug addiction. Our little sweetie came to live with use while our daughter sought help and the courts decided what would be done with our granddaughter. Recently custody was given to her father, who lives about a two hour drive from us. It was hard to adjust to having a toddler in the house and now it's hard to make the adjustment
October feature part 2 enjoy
