I’m just me. Bit in touch with my inner child, I’m proud to say. I have 2 grown sons, 38 and 35 … granddaughter, age 16 … and grandson, age 12. I’m also a proud fur-mommy of 3 cats …. Snickers, who is 19 cat years … Jasmine, who is 17 cat years …. and my ‘wild-child’, Molly, who is currently in the beginnings of her ‘terrible 3’s’ cat toddler years.. lol
I was diagnosed 25 years ago with clinical depression, and it’s been the grace of God, that I was never successful during all my attempts to be my own worst enemy to myself.
Have been bed-bound for the last 2 years, due to back surgery gone wrong. Makes me thankful for God in my life …. friends …. and for this site. There are so many things that make life worth living. Laughter. Love. Interesting conversations. The beauty of nature. There’s too much to list. Why do people have to hate and argue with each other? Why? What does it honestly achieve?
Can we all not just accept the different and unique people we all are?
Reading anything that catches my attention. Laughing. Good movies and TV shows. Comedies. Action. Documentaries. Adventure. Kid’s movies. Nature. Reality shows. No romance movies, or horror movies anymore though. One’s too sappy … the other I now get too jumpy for. lol Birds. Oceans. Babbling streams. Sunsets and sunrises. Dolphins. Listening to the beautiful calls of a pod of whales in the wild. Music. Colors - from the brightest and most vivid, to the softest and gentlest of muted shades. Accents. Different cultures. Curiosity. Adult coloring apps. I used to love adult coloring books, colored pencils, and gel pens …. unfortunately though, my table that slides over the bed here, isn’t the biggest of spaces for one to be creative. So I’ve really come to appreciate coloring apps, jigsaw puzzle apps, and reading apps (I can’t think of the blasted technical term for them!) Ahh, the joys of becoming an old fart. lol But I will ALWAYS appreciate the smell of books, turning pages, holding the weight of a good hardback in my hands. Rain. The low rumble of thunder. Rainbows. The sanity in which my computer and tablet give me, and the dear wonderful precious friends I’ve made all over the world through it. And the thousand or so other hobbies and appreciations I feel like I’m forgetting.

Heidi Taillefer’s work is a creative fusion of classical figurative painting, surrealism, contemporary realism, and mythology combined with popular figurative traditions ranging from Victorian romanticism to science fiction.
★ Born in Montreal in 1970 to a family rich in creative talent, she took private art lessons as a kid until the age of 18 at the La Palette School of Art in Beaconsfield, though her mother was truly her first art teacher. She studied at McGill university in Humanistics, then left to become a fine artist and conmmercial illustrator.★ Nature and technology collide in the beautifully bizarre paintings of Heidi Taillefer, a Montreal-based artist who has been showing her work for more than twenty years. Her colorful style is informed by the early twentieth-century surrealists, summoning a broad range of figurative traditions, from the drama of baroque portraiture to whimsical steampunk imagery.★ Her beautifully imagery raises important questions for us, as we look to the future and attempt to determine the pros and cons relating to how far we should allow ourselves to integrate with new technologies. In the creation of her art,she works through her thoughts about what it truly means to be human.
We would all do well to keep these notions at the fore as we march forward.

And that’s why all art represents and speaks such beauty, even that that we might not fully understand. It does not fail to always invoke wonder, awe, and even curiosity.
May you have a safe, wonderful, week ahead, Armeek … filled with light, love, smiles and laughter.
Well said Kat…Thank you darling, wish the same for you…

Top Secret was founded in 1991, but has its roots in the rich drumming traditions of the band’s home city, Basel, which is known for its annual carnival called Basler Fasnacht. The city is said to have over 3,000 active drummers at any one time.Basel drumming style is militaristic, derived from the military drumming drills of Swiss soldiers dating back to the Middle Ages. Top Secret in many ways adheres to the military nature of Basel drumming, but differs in many respects. Its drummers play at a much faster rate. Also, while traditional Basel drumming is somber and favors traditional marching tunes.

📽️ ᔕᕼOᖇT ᖴIᒪᗰ………..𝘼𝙣𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙡 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙃𝙤𝙧𝙧𝙤𝙧 𝙎𝙥𝙤𝙤𝙛………….★ 𝘿𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙚𝙠!
Filmmaker Julian Terry has written, produced, shot, edited, and directed this fun horror parody of 𝘼𝙣𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙡 𝘾𝙧𝙤𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙣𝙜 , called……..*𝘿𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙚𝙠.
𝘿𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙋𝙚𝙚𝙠’s premise is based around the concept that the game is integrated with the real world and every action the protagonist makes within the game appears in the real world. It’s not long before things take a sinister turn as an otherworldly presence comes to fruition.
Julian Terry advises users don’t play Animal Crossing late at night.
