I am an elven changeling long trapped in this foreign world...ever looking for glimmers of faery amidst nature, dreaming of trees and moonlight dances, and trying to bring as much of my world to this as I can. What else could I be here for, but to help people see the wonder, magic, beauty, and joy in the world? :aww:

Favourite genre of music: Classical, Soundtrack, Celtic, Enya, Middle Eastern/Indian/African stuff, New Age/Ambiant
Favourite photographer: andras120
Favourite style of art: realistic looking fantasy painting, photography, anime
MP3 player of choice: iPod
Personal Quote: There's nothing like a compliment to bring out the best in people

This Time I Have an Excuse!

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 10, 2013, 3:31 AM
Yes, that's right, while I know I'm perfectly capable of procrastinating my devwatch and forgetting to respond to comments and notes quickly without any help, for the past half a year at least I've been having one loooooong ongoing battle with internet/deviantart.  I really don't know what's going on, except that DA support suggested that our internet provider is for some reason having difficulty connecting to their servers, but whatever the case may be I've just HAD IT!  Of course I'm not leaving DA or anything like that, and I haven't stopped checking, but every time I try to come here to check things I encounter a wide variety of not-loading-ness and at last become disgusted and just say 'forget it!'   I get so sick of reloading and reloading and reloading pages hoping to actually See something or be able to Do something, but most of the time it just sits there pretending to load for hours without doing anything at all.  It's like dealing with a stubborn toddler, impossible and it can't even tell you what its problem is.  And the issues happen in Safari, Chrome, and Firefox at every time of day or night, even when my computer isn't doing anything else but loading one single page.  Mark has been having trouble as well, though perhaps not as severe as mine.  I cannot tell you how infuriating it is sometimes, I just have to step away before I get the urge to throw the computer - I'm sure it's not it's fault (it better not be it's fault!)  I have had some issues with other pages being slow to load, or not loading right (amazon mostly) but not to the extent of DA which is constant, not just hit and miss like the other pages.  Sigh.... I'm just... I don't even know.... so yeah, I'm sorry for ignoring you on here.  

Just to share the joy I have uploaded to my scraps some examples of what I'm dealing with, Behold the Horror:

So many nice plants and nature shots. Thank you so much!
I feel that you are an expert at finding beauty, hunting it, capturing it, preparing it on a dish, and then you generously share it with everyone.

Love you and mis you! Tehee! :heart: Just sweeping DA looking through your gorgeous favs. Hope you have a wonderful autumn :aww:

awww thank you!  I love you and miss you too! :hug:  I've been thinking about you recently, I haven't been on here as much for a while, nor on facebook, but have been wondering how you are doing, and hoping that you're having a good autumn too!  Here the summer has been lingering much too long, I've gotten a few whiffs of autumn in the air, but then it keeps switching back to hot weather again.
