  5. I am getting in some major ‘giggle therapy’ right now Dear Stan…. This is GREAT!!!!!! I did a self portrait yesterday too – but it certainly was not my alter-ego – and nothing as joyful as this…. I may post it soon though hesitate as theme somewhat darker for me. Know you will like though, at least from a photo standpoint 🙂 I think this could be your new thing — me want more ‘Stan portraits’ !!! Awesome outcome for for first semester GPA — Congratulations — Clapping for you all around xxoo

    • Thank you Robyn!!! And i DO hate that I can’t witness your :giggle therapt”!! lolol…i hope it does some good too, you deserve the best! And no worries, your imagery is always magical, so fire away and your right, I know I will love it! I dunno about making this alter ego thing a “new thing”….we first tried shooting this on the beach…I had a couple of kids run up to me and yell “trick or treat!!” lolol…and I think somebody may have called the police….lololol….

        Ahh Stan … Just seeing this — “trick or treat” ?? ! LOL!! Police … oh no!! Can’t imagine what would have happened if they saw me posing for mine 🙂 Thank you for your loving comment over at my place — just saw and will respond there soon – but meant a lot. I’m glad I found the courage to post it — and so grateful you did appreciate. Lots of emotion around it – spur of the moment idea – in the midst a struggle – but to record and create something artistic – very satisfying on some levels. Thanks for your encouragement dear friend — and I dunno — this alter ego thing is so cool — maybe do one for Halloween?? 🙂 xxooo

      • Just a quick hello to you Stan ~ just saw you liked “Just When You…” ~ thank you! have missed you and hope you are doing well. I’m off on a trip (medical adventure trying to teach my hips to stay in their sockets 😦 ~ but wanted to tell you new camera — since know you are into the tech of it all. It’s a Canon DSLR Rebel 3i (if I go that right)… So that photo was shot with it — I am still in beginner stages of learning all the settings — but who knows – may really figure it out one day ~ shadow is up for my recent post too ~ stay in touch dear friend — and let me know how you are doing these days!!! xo Much Love ~ Robyn

      • Robyn!! KNOW that I am praying for you dearest friend! and the Canon T3i is a marvelous camera, get back to photographing soon so I can see what that lil ole box of wonders can help you capture. Your images are beautiful…but, they do pale to both your words…and you smile my friend. I am in a sea of alligators it my time here blogging is far more limited than I had imaged! But, I always have time for my friends…if I can ever assist you, PLEASE let me know! Miss you and your incredible work! Best of luck, and please keep us posted on your progress!
