What wisdom would you give to your 20-year-old self if you could reach her through the cracks in time?

Maybe you tried!
Chances are, she didn’t listen.

Anybody trying to reach you now?

    Fantastic, unique and very creative image, Nadya!

  • Thank you, Monnie! This took FOREVER to post; I have my laptop running now, but with all these storms, naturally the service blows. In fact, we’re flooded in!!! No water near the house, but no way off the ranch — the road to the highway is a giant lake. Hopefully, it’s going to drain and dry a bit before we try to move! lol

    Very creative image and work, Nadya!!

  • Thanks so much Carol! I appreciate your comment! Hope all is with you — major problems with the internet (worse than usual. lol!) Plus, we ‘re packing up to move so this is why I haven’t been around. Once we’re settled I will catch up if possible!

    Hey mate, another mind bender… I often wonder what I’d say to my twentysomething self…great work :-D

  • Thanks, Virgo! Oh, I have a LOT to say to her — except she never listened anyway. And I’m not sure I’m doing any better now! lol (A little — I would like to think!)

    Oh how often I have thought – if only I knew then what I know now… would I have made different choices??? I will never know…
    Cool image Nadya…

  • Thanks so much for your comment! I would like to think, knowing what I know today I’d have made some better choices… but the old saying’s true: youth is wasted on the young! lol

    This is by far the best image you have ever created, for me. It is powerful, vibrant and exciting and it packs a real punch with its fabulous message. I love it.

  • Anna, thanks so much for your fabulous comment! I really appreciate it! (Even though I think you’ve made me blush a bit… lol!)
