So, while having play-time in your gallery, I see the option to critique this! And since you so foolishly encourage me, here we go: I l...

I'm a listener.

I'm around if anyone needs to talk about anything. I miss being active with you guys and a part of your lives, so any time anyone needs an ear - I'm around. And if I don't know you, you're still welcome to give me a shout. Everyone needs someone to talk to sometimes, and I never mind listening (or reading) anything. :heart:

Webcam

Thank you.

I can't always keep up with proper thanks, but know that I do thank anyone who reads anything of mine. :heart:

Also, you're already welcome. So no need to thank me for a thing. (:

There’s enough anger in the air
to strangle anyone. Anyone can
say they’d do this or that. That
isn’t the point here. Here and now
makes our tomorrow. Tomorrow
is the focus. Focus on that – that
we need tomorrow. Tomorrow
will be our truth. Truth is noted
after the fact. Fact isn’t respected
in the now. Now is when we react
to what happened then. Then was
the foundation of it all. All must
recognize what is needed. Needed
now is ground to stand on. On this,
plant yourself – yourself, and not
someone else’s voice. Voice instead
your hope, your rage. Rage against
the wrongs, with your rights. Rights
ought to be as free as breath. Breath
should never be taken by hatred.
Movement
This is just a frustrated ramble about what's happening in Ferguson. I think we all have opinions on the matter. It's my opinion that a kid died unjustly and injustice became the continued theme of all that's followed. I do not applaud the violence and theft happening in that town, but the riots are warranted. Those who are trying to stand and make a point deserve to be heard.

Black lives matter.

And this one, by way of the ever-amazing LadyLincoln :

Lung Cancer Awareness: Finding Your CourageWelcome to another year and a new opportunity to make a difference! Every year, we at: LungCancer-Awareness hope to host a wonderful community project to uplift and inspire those around us. Each day, we hope to express understanding, love and hope for those fighting. It is not always easy to find our courage when facing the unknown – but we are all united here to help those facing this battle know that they are not alone. Those fighting against lung cancer (or any other cancers,) may have several unanswered questions and fears. No one taking this journey should ever have to face this ongoing battle alone, and this is where we come in.
LungCancer-Awareness: Profiles of Courage

For those not familiar with this group and its purpose, we shall delve into that right now. Our group was created to bring awareness to a well-known cancer that has not only impacted the daily lives of the members of my own family – but so many ot

Lookie What I Have by FuzzyHoser
Lookie What I Have
So, I came home yesterday to find a package in the mail from the ever lovely your-methamphetamine  I think you all know how much I love her; if not, I LOVE HER IN THE BIGGEST MOST RIDICULOUS WAY POSSIBLE. Ahem, she really is a darling. So anyway, the package - in it was her spoken word album, the articulation of my vertebrae, which is incredible and brilliant and you're all going to go and download it immediately. NOW. Here's the link, because I love y'all and want what's best for all of you:

mockinroojay.bandcamp.com/

She also sent me the most beautiful note that, between y'all and me, kindasortamaybe made me tear up with pride and love and mushy gushy wooshies. She's seriously just a damn beautiful human being. Support her every endeavor. :heart:
