To all of my friends and watchers at deviatArt: I owe you a big apology!
I have been away for a very long time, sporadically looking in, because of a bad conscience, or in the hope of picking up where I left off and staying on again. Instead I failed to stay.
In order to explain my failure I need to share some background about me. I started being active on dA after I lost my business and everything with it (around end of 2011). I managed to keep my camera gear and decided to do things I love for "now", while dealing with the consequences of breakdown (and burnout)... as a kind of balance. I danced a great deal, photographed a great deal and was here at deviantArt.
Here and in the rooms I danced I made friends and got in touch with people who inspired me. Especially from you fine people at dA I got a great deal of wonderful positive Karma! I am and will always remain grateful!
Last year I had reached the point where my "time out" was no longer sustainable and I had to get much more serious about rebuilding my business. By now I am starting to stand on my own two feet again and can see a future ahead.
Under the new circumstances I regrettably had no time left for dA. My camera(s ... I do have one in my phone as well) did remain close to me though. In other words I have a backlog, which I want to share with you!
End of July I took my first vacation since I started rebuilding my business. I was in Sweden with the family of my life partner in the countryside and without Internet (virtually none). I did notice that I got a DD (thank you hosagu !!!), but could not act on that. It was a kind and a kind of a wakeup call. Ever since I wanted to find the time to get back here and stay!
So here I am. I'm gonna pick up the pick up the pieces now and remain,
