It has simply been a very long time since you were here. I've long been more involved with the irc channel than the forum. I'm a tertiary observer. There is a bit of upheaval going on right now; several bannings and such. Hopefully more moderator activity and involvement will bode well for the community at large. Quality seems to come and go.
My mother used to tell people that she could look at my face and she would know if I needed to eat something soon. It's something about blood sugar I think but if I get too hungry...people had better run. I also get pretty upset if somebody bothers me while I'm trying to quietly enjoy my meal.
I don't think people recognize the importance of good food sometimes.
That was the very first poll i had ever tried to post, I will try a second but i do not think I can post more than one poll per thread.
BTW the poll was an after thought as many of my best thoughts seem to be, usually by the time i think of them it is too late to implement them!
It's funny how that thread works. I'm just so curious to know the answer to each riddle. When I was the answer to one of them I was surprised at how flattered I felt. :) I did have hopes my riddle would last at least a few minutes. *sigh* Perhaps this is why my poetry sucks? :D
Thanks. I've been working on a book over the last year but it's fiction. I am trying to incorporate may of these themes into it. The only problem is I keep rethinking the story and going back to the drawing board. I wrote about half of it, but now I think I will need to start over. Non fiction intimidates me for some reason.
i've only read a few chapters into it (just because i've been so busy, unfortunately) but "beyond the body" by susan j. blackmore is really good so far. it certainly jives with my INTPness well; the way she approaches it is so much less preachy than i've seen in other books, and it provokes a lot of questions. which is a good thing. i whole-heartedly recommend it.
Thank you, Sapphire Harp. Might I say that your handwriting makes me absolutely jealous!
My avatar is by John Bauer. He did all sorts of paintings for Swedish fairy tails and I love his use of color: http://bauer.artpassions.net/
My profile picture is a pretty recent discovery. Jess Burgess Collins. Sadly I'm having trouble finding more of his work but it made me think higher of collage art!
Wow, how unexpected and how kind. *HUG* Your post meant a lot to me, thank you.
I'm annoyed I seem to need periodic affirmation, intellectual I don't feel like I should need it... but basically I just don't assume things to be true, it doesn't work well for me to try to make those assumptions; if I don't get the evidence or data to back up my feelings (such as feeling accepted), then I can't hold onto them. So thank you. :)
Which part of Colorado are you in? I have been to the Colorado Springs / Garden of Gods / Pike's Peak area, but not really elsewhere in that state. Still, it was pretty enough for me to want to stay there. :)
I am impressed by your handwriting, it's actually consistent and fairly neat... and still cursive! I can't seem to do that, regardless of how hard I try.
Thanks for the note on the thread. It's definitely interesting, saddening, enlightening, and several other things that end in -ing. Oddly enough I only ever felt that way long long ago for a short time near the end of my high school years...I'll go into on that thread. But seriously, being a pahd thai eating rock would be pretty cool...admit it! :D
