Love trumps hate

The struggle continues.

Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...
  1. Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.
  2. Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.
  3. Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.
  4. Interact with the artwork, continue its story.
  5. Ask the artist how or why they did something.
  6. If nothing else, even "Ooh, pretty!" or "Oh, ick!" is a lot more information than no comment at all.

FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

Because it's past time for white-haired white men to stand up and say it.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, let me not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Spine Center follow up this morning. I'm cleared for back to work full time, though the stamina says to keep working up to it gradually.
After three months of living on codeine and acetaminophen, I'm clean. This is a big deal. Time to retire the pill box.

Appreciate your kind words and the favorites.  Hope your recovery from back problem is daily improving!  As time passes and our bodies respond to that reality it can seem both natural and surprising.  Our inside "spark" does not seem to recognize the external time passage...perhaps making our art is a way to express that.
