Above First Swim at the Pond

The above is one of the BD gifts my eldest daughter sent me. First lesson about how to get in the pond and swim.
After many ups and downs, including killing a rogue pig, the hen, with the help of my daughter, managed to hatch 25 cute chicks, I don't know how old they are here (2/3 weeks perhaps).

BELOW A SPECIAL BONUS ... hope you will enjoy it. Title is "Egg sized ducklings at the puddle" (all images Copyright AlexStanfield )

I managed to make the Youtube link work thanks to the help of my friend (or a "big help from my friends" :giggle: ) fraterchaos :thanks: :rose:

Journal History

July and August

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 29, 2015, 11:10 AM




Just to say HI !
  • Since the "disappearance" of my dear friend Céline a.k.a. Tibodo, founder of the Apo-Weekly-Challenge group I had been at a loss, can't really blame her disappearance for this lack of enthusiasm for continuing creating fractals, or any other type of art, though have been practicing with several tutorials but I am not satisfied with the results.


    • Anyway I have always experienced some "down" periods at about this time of the year (Fall in my side of the planet) even though Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons ... so whatever.


    • Had to do something in this journal and this is what I can manage for now.



Idle thoughts

  • I managed to add many of my favourite classical music pieces (Thank you Alex !!)

    • Discovered a fabulous pianist and orchestra conductor. As usual with my "discoveries" this is like re-inventing the wheel.


    • This fantastic interpreter is Dame Mitsuko Uchida, fell totally in love with how she plays the piano and in many opportunities conducts Mozart piano concerts, specially #20 with the Salzburg Cameratta. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hbzy3A… )


    • Among the many pieces I added to my playing lists is Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by Bach (both for Orchestra and Organ) (www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipzR9b…  andwww.youtube.com/watch?v=bkUUjU…) and I believe this is my most favourite one, mainly due to being "exposed", when I was around 3 or 4 yo, to that beautiful and incredibly creative animated film by Walt Disney "Fantasia" (the film was created in 1940) I could never forget the incredible sensation it caused in my mind that combination of sound and colour.



    • One of the reasons why I love colours and music too.

    • Well I did say this was about idle thoughts, you are of course free to leave :nod: :D


    • This will be all for now but first I want to send a big hug and many many thanks to all my friends and visitors that were so kind to leave a comment and also for the favourites given to my (meager) artistic production :blush:

    • Orchids by KmyGraphic Thank you for fav plz icons by Kirtan-3d  :iconsomehugsplz:

August 2014, seems that August is when I feel like updating my ID image.
As usual this new one has a certain amount of "post-production" involved, but then, what's the use of knowing a few tricks in Photoshop if I wouldn't use them to improve my current looks :shrug: :no: :giggle:

I think this is one of the nicest things I have ever read. To the women I'm sending this to: Thank you for being you. There is love in my heart for what you do in my life...thank you for being my friend, aka "sisters in life"!
God doesn't give you the people you want; He gives you the people you NEED...to help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you and to make you into the person you were meant to be.
I LOVE YOU!
The Clock

One Flaw In Women
Women have strengths that amaze men...
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in .
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the
doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they
think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what
makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their
family and friends.
Women have vital things to say
and everything to give..
HOWEVER, IF THERE IS
ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,
IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.
NOW, YOU'RE ON THE CLOCK! IN 9 MINUTES SOMETHING WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY,

BUT YOU HAVE TO TELL 9 SISTERS YOU LOVE THEM INCLUDING ME...if I count...GO!


Please pass this along to all your women friends and relatives to remind them just how amazing they are .

I hope that you make contact with Tibodo very soon.  I have noticed that you are a really caring person and I understand that you would be concerned for her :hug:

Unfortunately other than by notes here in dA or gmail I have no other means to contact her and she had not responded to either of my notes or mails.
I am very concerned. Thank you for asking :love:

Thank you so much for your kind support, Martha! :tighthug: Sorry for not answering for so long, I've been busy with exams (and probably will be for a while). Thanks for being tolerant and waiting so much, usually when I'm a bit late, I give out some sweets, now I feel I owe you a whole chocolate factory... :tighthug:
