I'm finally getting to process photos from a recent excursion to a state park in Texas. Happy happy happy! I'll post them soon.

(((Для тебя суть – милая)))

Вот приплыли – я рисую – для тебя рисую суть

Если будешь ты покорна – выбью с головы я муть

Не таким ещё вправлял – я мозги на новый лад

Я тебе не пионер – Юрий не всегда знай! – гад


Я такие шпарю темы, что гипноз весь отдыхает

Я влюблю тебя в себя – твой бля Ангел запорхает

Но он будет счастлив кроха – моя личность бесконечна

Знай! – твоя любовь ко мне- Богом сделана навечно


Свои сопли – сама съешь и замолишь, чтоб был рядом

Я убью тебя на веки – свом Дьявольским – знай! Взглядом

Ну, а так будет прекрасно – я порой вполне нормален

Знай, твой крохотный чертёнок – просто сука будет спален

I'm assuming the "you were tagged in a photo" that isn't of me is some sort of spam? I've seen it twice now, once for me, once for someone else. It just strikes me as odd. Anyone else had experience with this?

That's what I was thinking if it happens to me again. As it is, I can't remember who it was that did it the first time.

Sometimes I find my activities lift me up and make me feel more capable. Other times I feel less capable. When I analyze this, I believe it is my perception of how people respond to me more than their reactions that guide this feeling. The trick is to maintain a stable sense of self and not be buffeted by other people's statements to me. Often it's my own baggage getting in the way of a clear interpretation of their intent. Someone could be checking on me to see how I'm doing and I mistakenly take it as a lack of trust in my abilities. As someone recently pointed out to me, baggage is often wrong; give people the benefit of the doubt.

Difficult to do, but a worthy goal.

It can be difficult not to get buffeted. I have trouble with that sometimes.

We had a visitor, a first timer to the Open Stage, and this is what he found there. 
 
"We reached the rather nondescript building on the side of a strip mall where a few odd characters milling about the front. Corsets and funny hats have always been the mark of the eccentric performer, but nothing could properly prepare me for the absolute madness that waited behind the dangling curtains that separated the real world from the wacky sideshow world of The Open Stage."

I keep saying it's been a while, and it has. I have recently made the move from one of the still photographers to the videographer for the Open Stage and am purchasing equipment. What a fun way to spend my Thanksgiving/pre-birthday weekend! Now to find a fluid tripod head that works with the Canon XA10...

I am so inspired by the photographers here and have been struggling with the balance between viewing life through the viewfinder and experiencing life. On a recent hike at a state park I took some photos but found myself putting the big DSLR down and capturing moments with my iPhone instead. With Apple's continued evolution in photo tech on their phones, do you find yourself doing more with your phone camera or sticking solely to your DSLR?

The iPhone is good for quick shots, but I really want something with an optical zoom to get in close. Cannot always zoom with the feet! That, to me, is reason enough to carry the DSLR until I can afford something like a G12 or one of the 4/3 cameras.

I was just reading a post on someone having a freed up calendar (what's that?) and I thought wouldn't it be neat to be able to sell free time to people. "Here, here's a bit of free time to add to your busy day." I bet that would sell like hot cakes. Better than hotcakes. When is the last time you bought some hotcakes?

I seriously need to carve out some of that free time for myself. I actually miss getting online and connecting with friends and other professionals. :)

What is this "free time"' of which you speak? Also, since it's called "free" time, shouldn't it be free of charge? ;)

Also, mmmm, hotcakes.
