Copyright 2010 Journal Skin by Airamneleb


It seems I have been collecting a lot of your work lately. You know there is no way to tell when my next journal will be. Most likely I might try to write one before I go away for a week in November but I never know for sure until it happens. Oh. It looks like it is happening now!
There have been a lot of people questioning why they are here at the moment and even, why they create art? Maybe it is the time of year or maybe the time has just arrived for some change. 
Well, I love it here. I put my pictures out there and I get some favs and I get some comments. I love getting comments because I like talking with people. Sure, I know I am not going to go out to dinner with most of my friends here. I have 'real' friends for that. The thing is though, that doesn't mean I don't see you as 'real' friends too in some way. You are my friends here. Without dA I could never have so many friends from all over the world that I do now. What is the difference between friends on here and friends in my 'real' life? Well I can't touch you (just as well you cry), I can't smell you (just as well we all cry), I can see you if you have put up a picture, I can't hear you and what's the other one? Taste...well for decency's sake I'll leave that one out. 
I can talk with you and I do. I can enjoy your work and I do. I can laugh with you and smile with you and cry with you.......and I do. 
This is one part of my life. It is a fun part of my life. I get much enjoyment from being here. I don't worry about how popular my pictures are. I take every comment as a huge compliment and I am grateful for them all. What I don't generally do is let the various parts of my life compete with each other. This is a very special part of my life and it goes into the pot that makes up my entire life. 
There is room for all the aspects of my life (apart from work). Yes, I have too much work which does get in the way of my fun time but it pays for the fun time so I have to just get on with it. 
Anyway, we all have to do what we have to do to make our lives how we want them. I love being here and will continue to be here spouting this kind of sentimental rubbish and uploading my photographs. I will be looking forward to seeing your new works and throwing comments at them with hugs and hearts attached because that is what I love to do. :love:
I hope this doesn't upset anyone as it is never my intention to do that. 
If I could actually meet you I would love that. If I could meet just some of you I would love that. Stranger things have happened. So, as usual, I send you much love and kind thoughts :heart: :huggle: 
You make my life a better place :iconbigheartplz:

And now to the show. Please sit back and enjoy some of my recent favourites. As always, they reflect a wide range of technical ability but they all show passion, love and enthusiasm for their art and I will always support that in any way I can :clap:

Hello Lawrence! Wow, that's another wonderful feature!
It's great to read that you're enjoying being here so much and
I'm sure you know that we're all very grateful for all you kindness
and that we're happy to have you here as our friend :hug:
I'm very sorry that I don't leave comments so often, but I try to
change that : ) Recently thinking about a little project I want to
start but I'm not so sure, yet. But then I would spend more time
here for sure!
