If legalizing hard drugs decreases usage, does mandated mask wearing reduce bank robbing??? :huh:

I think my fear and reluctance is being around strangers and the unfamiliar. I was one of the first members here and my confidence just kind of evolved over time.
I posted in BotS and contests and TerryLea liked me.

I truly can’t photoshop any more and the people at Renderunto won’t understand that. I wouldn’t be able to contribute.

The dementia community understands abandonment; not so much making new friends. Some of the people we used to visit with on our walks are starting to avoid us.

What folks don’t understand about mental illness is that to the afflicted, everything is normal. They only react to rejection. They don’t notice anything if you treat them normally.

Back in the day, before computers, I made slide shows for ARC, The Association Of Retarded Citizens. At first, it’s very awkward pointing cameras at severely retarded children. They loved it and the images you can get are amazing.

The staff would use the shows for fund raising and one song I used was Bridge Over Troubled Water. When I first showed it to them they were seated around a conference table. It wasn’t very long into the presentation that one of the administrators realized what was happening and grabbed a box of tissues to pass around.

Music and photography elicit some strong emotions, I’ll tell you.

Seeing them in their element; playing games, swimming, interacting on their own terms brings you into their world.
Everyone loves attention, but they were also aware when they weren’t welcomed.



You can’t tell, but it’s been hours since I wrote what’s above. Maybe you can tell; there’s more space in between this paragraph and the last one, than the others.

I been thinking... yes, this is what it looks like... I could join ‘renderunto’ under a different name. I’ve always liked Pilgrim. Dang, now I can’t use that one. But y’all would knock me off as soon as I complained about the guy who stole my invention idea. I mean, I could have made condiment slices years ago. It takes two minutes for the Texas sun to take all the water out of ketchup. I should have looked around when I was having that idea at that picnic.

Or, I could just use my shoebox of pictures and edits since there would be a new audience and all of you would forgive me for my reruns. I’m sure ‘renderunto’ would love to have my classic comic edits.

But I really am scared of embarrassing myself. I spent this evening convincing Donna that we shouldn’t worry about that boy that is out there alone. We’ll watch the parking lot for search type activity and wait and see if they put posters up for him. This morning we called her sister again to help assure her that I’m her husband.
Oh, and she thinks we’re driving her mom’s car,

Her neurologist died in December and they didn’t tell us until last week.

I just don’t want to take that to ‘renderunto’. I used to have somebody that could tell what I was thinking if I just flinched while driving the car. She literally knew what problem I was reacting to.

There's nobody on Renderunto except a couple of Daggerians. The writing in the sign up/log in box is microscopic and totally unreadable, so it is unlikely anybody else will join, at least until some changes are made. I am afraid that just as Dagger Bay was a place for Worthians to fade away, Renderunto is a place for the last 10 Daggerians to fade away.

My impression was that, except for the spam :angry:, the only problem with Dagger Bay was that there could be no new contests. The forums are still fine. And there are no apparent contests on Renderunto. It seems still a work in progress, and, no offense to Dio, but the whole photochopping scene seems so 20-aught something, if not 1990s. Not much life left in it.

That is so funny. Looked at a few clips of the show. That is so funny.

She will always be Catwoman, but turns out she was in everything I loved as a kid from F-Troop to Get Smart, Twilight Zone, Bewitched, THe Monkees, Beverly Hillbillies, Star Trek, It Takes A Thief...

In my humble opinion, in order for photo editing to maintain interest, it has to change with the times.
My solution has always been with collaboration. It’s just too hard to do it all alone.
Strength in numbers, synergy, networking, many hands make light work, cooperation, delegate, power struggles, office politics, too many cooks spoil the broth.... I went too far.

In short, capitalistic socialism. I’ve failed on many collaborations and have gotten ripped off. But I took the chance and have things, that would not have existed, had I not.

We can’t get a reality czar fast enough.
Somebody needs to tell John Kerry that there is another way to get to Europe besides private plane and sailing.
Unless commercial airlines are a myth, in which case we need to know that too.

Why do they call them picture frames?
Pictures are inanimate objects and could commit no crimes therefore, any attempt to frame them would fail.
So they would more accurately be called, unframed pictures.

Yeah it’s only about 4 in the morning; I’ll regret this when I wake up again later.
