I'm artsy and kinda introverted. Just takes me a bit to open up :) Generally reserved but responsive ^^

Some selected quotes because I'm lazy ;) :
“I won't tell you that the world matters nothing, or the world's voice, or the voice of society. They matter a good deal. They matter far too much. But there are moments when one has to choose between living one's own life, fully, entirely, completely—or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands. You have that moment now. Choose!” 
― Oscar Wilde

"The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words". ~Rachel Naomi Remen

"Fear. The spectacle of fearsome acts. Somebody steals from me, I cut off his hands. He offends me, I cut out his tongue. He rises against me, I cut off his head, stick it on a pike, raise it high up so all on the streets can see. That's what preserves the order of things. Fear." - From Gangs of NY

I am like a falling star who has finally found her place next to another in a lovely constellation, where we will sparkle in the heavens forever.-Amy Tan

“The difference between my darkness and your darkness is that I can look at my own badness in the face and accept its existence while you are busy covering your mirror with a white linen sheet. The difference between my sins and your sins is that when I sin I know I'm sinning while you have actually fallen prey to your own fabricated illusions. I am a siren, a mermaid; I know that I am beautiful while basking on the ocean's waves and I know that I can eat flesh and bones at the bottom of the sea. You are a white witch, a wizard; your spells are manipulations and your cauldron from hell yet you wrap yourself in white and wear a silver wig.” 
― C. JoyBell C.

"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed."~C.G. Jung

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” 
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light. - Albert Schweitzer

"When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bustling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity."
~Dale Carnegie

I loved you when love was Spring, and May, Loved you when summer deepened into June, and now when autumn yellows all the leaves. - V. Sackville-West

"For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed;
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"
from "Destruction at Sennecherib"

Notifications just get lost. Fact of life now, huh. -. -

Seeing that I'm a busy bee, for the time being, I'm checking my Internet stuff on my phone. It's that much harder to track things down mobile once the notification slides along on its merry way and dissappears lol I go "hey I really wanted to hang onto that one" but it floats away and then I forget. Just because I have time for a quick peek doesn't mean I can respond right away. I'd like to at some point but my brain just cannot carry any more info lol

Error 30?

So, I was trying to take a picture of some icicles and my camera just went bonkers and gave me an error 30. So I was going to record how it was behaving. Which I succeeded in doing but not without some difficulty. Mainly I couldn't get the damn battery out one handed Lmao!! Secondly, even though I had repeated this process more than once it, magically worked lol Like when you go to the doctors and your symptoms suddenly abate lol Not that I expect it to stay working because that's just how it goes >.<

Yikes what a drag. No idea on fix but maybe a phone call to Canon servicing. I have always found them really helpful on the phone. No way could you have used your shutter life, so hopefully something teanie and easily sorted. Maybe worth sending it for a service/sensor clean and have them sort it as part of that? I've usually found their prices surprisingly less than I fear ( bar once).

My 5d2 thinks of Canon Servicing at Borehamwood UK a bit like a child does its Auntie's. I think it enjoys its visits.

Don't feel for me, feel with me.

The healing power of your empathy is vast and grand. Sympathy and "silver lining" can sometimes only serve the purpose of disconnecting us further. Paved with good intentions and all that but...

Empathy though? Feeling with someone instead of for them, can make a rainy day brighter. Since that cloud is shared, it loses some of its power and the sun can peek through. You don't have to say the right thing, you don't have to say anything at all many times. You being there, being present, understanding, supportive and offering your love is enough. To be listen to without critique. To truly connect to another human being can be the balm to a bruised soul.
