Retired ICU nurse, mom of 2 boys and 2 girls, only 1 left to marry this fall ! 7 grandkids, 5 boys and 2 girls all kids and grandkids happy, healthy, well adjusted, smart as all get out and mama SO proud of them all. Oldest is a Lt Col in USAF and a PhD; next is a daughter who is an OB/GYN; other 2 in management positions in business. Grandkids all smart as heck too!!!! when I retired disabled from nursing a few years ago, didn't know what to do with myself; then a year and a half ago got PaintDotNet and learned to put 1 layer on top of another and it was ON! now still love PDN and use my kids' PS7 for some flair. May get CS5.5 on subscript, or wait for 6. just got DAZ, Hexagon and Bryce, need now to try out 3D but still have so much to learn on 2D platform hate to spread myself too thin. Also love my birds, my little ShihTzu who keep me company as my husband works out of state and I miss him terribly. I sleep way too much when he is gone... I also have a cat I hate. That is pretty much it....cheers, Kathy

Interests
Sappho ( /ˈsæfoʊ/; Attic Greek Σαπφώ [sapːʰɔː], Aeolic Greek Ψάπφω [psapːʰɔː]) was an Ancient Greek poet, born on the island of Lesbos. Later Greeks included her in the list of nine lyric poets. Her birth was sometime between 630 and 612 BC, and it is said that she died around 570 BC, but little is known for certain about her life. The bulk of her poetry, which was well-known and greatly admired throughout antiquity, has been lost, but her immense reputation has endured through surviving fragments.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sappho#W…

But thou shalt ever lie dead,
nor shall there be any remembrance of thee then or thereafter,
for thou hast not of the roses of Pieria;
but thou shalt wander obscure even in the house of Hades,
flitting among the shadowy dead.
~Sappho, Diehl 58

The sinking moon has left the sky,
The Pleiades have also gone.
Midnight comes—and goes, the hours fly
And solitary still, I lie.
~Sappho, Diehl 94

anne I have missed my friend. have been very sick, and this site overwhelmed me. I learned a lot and all I do now is read books, do Photoshop CC, and sometimes I can watch a movie. It took me a month to watch all of Avatar, I had to keep stopping it because of anxiety attacks. Books the same way. I start getting upset and have to quit. I can make composites though, still, it is pretty much all I can do. This past year I have been off DA, I put up on Pictify.com/user/icu109. I give all credits  I have so I feel I am doing right but I am unable to do the back and forth communiation with people . I cannot email anymore either. I can write a little summary on an album and write up the credits and that is about all I can manage. I no longer can go out...I did get out in March, and took pictures down by the river. I got out in May to the back yard. I made it on the porch a few times this summer. Now I have a problem leaving my room. You are the only one I have written here. It is just llike when I quit the hospital, I no longer could contact my friends there, a wall went up in my mind and stopped me. this mental thing is a waste of my precious time. I am 61  now, and still have a caretaker and housekeeper. I don't feel I'm getting better, neither does my husband so he is divorcing me in October. My art if that is what u can call it is all I have to keep me halfway sane. I know I'm prob bothering you, as you must be so busy, but I saw your image and your kindness came back to me and I have felt compelled to signin to DA to thank you for all your kindness to me in the past and wish you blessings. If I were to upload images here the message box would fill up again and the deviations box would be thousands, but I just learned I don't have to stress to answer, I can delete, feel a little bad but my nerves can't take answering. Bless u Anne for all u have been to me. Kathy  ps u can tt me at pictify. I think I followed u or something.

I'm so sorry to hear such bad news from you. I'm a bit older that you: 62 since june. And I passed through some bad events in the past: a breath cancer, a great lack of understanding with my single son, the loosing of my work... But my artwork always saved me and I always kept joy in my heart: I love life so much since I was near to loose it. I would like to give you some joy and a lot of courage. The wheel of life always turns and you can find something good at the end. :hug:

(I don't know pictify).

thank u miss izzy, It was wow, 61.  don't feel that old. have been pretty sick, emotional health getting worse but I can do Photoshop CC now, pretty much all I CAN do, for real. Can barely leave the room now. The birds and dog have to be in here. Still have a caretaker and housekeeper because of the illnesses. Both my daughters are pregnant! the older one, the OB doc, is due in a few days, a boy. Younger one who married a year ago also expects a boy in Dec. ! Blessings. Haven't been onsite here more than 2 or 3 times in over a year, it is a problem for me I have not been up to facing, like going into a store. Too much commotion. But I think if I uploaded images, and closed my eyes to the mail, I may be ok anxiety wise . It is the communiation that is a problem for me. Causes huge stress. I'm not getting any better, and the husband is divorcing me. He needs to get on with his life, I don't blame him. He is a good man, just can't handle my illnesses, he is tired. We'll see what happens. I'm on pictify.com/user/icu109. I can't handle commmunications of any kind, can't handle email or phone or regular mail. I'm a hermit crab, stay in my room. I got on here to delete everything and ended up just deleting all the messages. I can't answer them, but I do have a handful of staunch friends here I am answering, grateful for your support in the past and blessings to you in the future. best, katy

you are SO welcome. I do love your poser figures, I am on pictify and always credit u. I am unable to do all the messages etc here due to severe anxiety, but do always credit my elements. All I do 24/7 is sit in my bedroom with the door closed and work on Photoshop CC. I can watch a movie but it takes me days and days to finish it, I have a high anxiety level that is wasting away my life, drop by drop, second by second. I feel all I have to give is my composite, have a huge problem with communication, that is why I stopped uploading here, was drawing too much attention to myself and that is something that causes a lot of stress for me. I'm always afraid to make a mistake here. In pictify, even though I always credit, I am still nervous. My experience here, starting off knowing nothing 3 or 4 years ago, working on Paint.NET, knowing nothing about credits, Now working with CC and always posting whatever credit I have for elements I use, I feel I am doing right, and doing the maximum of what I am able to do health wise. It is my only therapy and DA was poking at it and it was making me sicker. I want to thank you so much for your kindness, you talent which has given some of my composites just the right touch to draw my breath away. Bless you and keep the torch lit. I may not be back here for sometime, or may have courage tomorrow. I never know. I may have ok feelings to post but not entertain any comments, which would decrease the anxiety level. I can't even use regular email. I am icu109 on pictify. blessings, kathy
