Whatever you celebrate that floats your seasonal boat has a good one.

Oh and Batamology forgot about that one

Dearest Els,

Reading you makes me think I am not the only one with a "heavy heart"...

This whole world is sinking. So much, that I don't believe it ever "floated" once.

My salvation came with the belief that only the present moment counts.

We will never learn from our past experiences.

Nor will the future be anything we expect.

So just "be", no matter what you once were or never have been, and no matter or what you shall never be, or will.

Inspiration is an unhoped for spark that lights up the imagination, projecting the soul ahead in time, on the screen of the unexpected. Just be... Now...


Peace. Peace. Peace.

Yeah nice to read you! Just call me Ghani! lol

Much of my art is digital, but I do have an art shop where you'd propbabaly find any thing even your neighbour next door!. I am a big collector/recycler. I hate paying money for Art. But I like to be paid for It! hehe!

I work on wood, leather, I like stone arrangements like in 'Interested Widow' or 'Sporragie'.

I love mountains(no trees), rocks, stones, pebbles, sand etc.

As I said I am a big depressive person with social phobia and a touch of bipolarity. The perfect recepie for any one who wants to look at the world differently  ha! ha!

I also have insulin dependant Diabetes, but this is a joke compared to my nervous, psychological state.

I find art works here on BAP very strange sometimes, I suppose it is just a matter of time and I'll be making even stranger work myself. ha! ha!


Ah... for the gifts thing.

I think this is a way to show affection to each other.

You get a 100 free credits  when you join the BAP.

All gifts are worth 75 credits, except for the ribbon which is free.

If you need more credits there is an option somewhere on the board, that allows to buy them.

I only have 25 credits left, this is why I could only send you the free one. Ha! Ha!


Anyway, I feel you are a very sensitive and sensible person, your ways are natural.

And reading that you are still hanging on to life, gives me more power to hang on to mine.


Peace. Peace. Peace.
