So much has happened, but I feel I need to be circumspect, partly out of a need for privacy but mostly because I want to keep my journal upbeat and positive!  And I do want to assure you that everything is okay, really.  Not perfect, wonderful or great, but okay.  I know some of you care very much I and don't want you to be upset!  Please don't be...

Well, first, I was gifted a 12 month premium membership from a wonderful Deviant.  I am so incredibly touched by this show of appreciation!  Thank you!

And now in no particular order, my positive spin on recent events (while trying to avoid sarcasm)....

I've heard of something called a Hyperbaric Oxygen chamber many years ago.  It's used to treat a variety of medical problems.  I finally got to see one in person in January!  Nearly every weekday.  And February, too!

After working several years at the same company, I've accumulated a great deal of vacation time, which I'm thankful for.  Also, the company is willing to bend the rules for me a bit during hard times.  Thanks to the magic of telecommuting I've been able to work from home most of the time and, with free WiFi, even from the donut shop near a certain medical facility.

Growing up, I had a wonderful old neighbor whom I'll call Mr. John.  He was a quality manager at a supplier of military  electronics.  He had a colorful way of talking.  He didn't curse at all.  But for example he might describe a conflict as "a pissing contest."  It's really the "pissing contest" I'm thinking of here, because, thanks to our four cats, I finally have a very visceral understanding of that term.

I might mention the weather, but I don't need to put a positive spin on that.  I love Love LOVE snow.  It's snowing right now, in fact.  It makes me tremendously happy.  This is my favorite time of year, it really is.  Our black lab loves it even more than I do.

Gracie
My mother-in-law tamed and took in this sweet cat, a neighborhood stray, whom she called Gracie.  She urged us to care for this cat a few years ago.  She even paid for the first vet bill.

Here is Gracie in July of 2013, basking in the sun on our three-season porch.  I just came across this old photo and thought to process it (with The GIMP) and upload it.

Hope you enjoy it!

Aha!  Now I know why you wanted to give me a llama!  Thank you so much for all the work you did for this contest!

I do admit to silently groaning when I first read about the contest.  Abstracts?  Huh?  But only for a second.  Then I followed the links you provided and learned so much!  And you're totally right about trying something new and going beyond your comfort zone.  I really felt that I grew as an artist as a result of this contest.

I have some time on this Thanksgiving Eve, so I thought I feature the winners and thank the judges.  (The reason I have time is because I'm keeping out of the kitchen -- there's a lot of cooking and baking going on!)  I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family (both human and furry).

Peace!
