I’m a “scatter-focus” artist. ANYTHING may be here or roundabout my galleries. Expect nothing anywhere and...

Two Important Things...

Hello all (as if the entire free world and some parts of China is reading this….). I just wanted to let EVERYONE IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE know I won another 1st place in a radio station photography contest. Woo hoo! And this time it really is a WOO HOO because the prizes are SHARP and I’ll have as much fun giving them away as I had earning them. :-) The winning image was of the hummingbird family I took some time ago, one of the first shots as a DSLR photographer. What made this one doubly special is that it was a win with well over 100 other entries in the same competition.

And the other thing is a bit more personal. I suffered a severe terror attack because of my bi-polar illness this week. I wasn’t kept in the hospital but I was forced onto a backboard and tied there for at least 3 hours while ER staff tried to figure out what was wrong with me. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to communicate the location or name of my doctor until well into the testing so it was a rather traumatic experience physically. But the bruises and scrapes will heal and my mind as already adjusted thanks to an emergency usage of a drug to make me forget what was happening and the immediate past. I remember nothing to feed any fear or repetition.

I am OK and my PhD was very happy I was taking it all so well, tho I am still stressed enough to be off work for a while until that’s under control and the work environment that caused this incident is improved. I should be back online often this week as I will be staying home and probably up at all hours of the day and night. LOL!

For those of you who knew and offered support, I deeply thank you. And for everyone else, fear not for I am a survivor and I will cope with Artist’s Disease successfully and with respect for its issues.

Bless you all and be well!
Lenny
