Still Alive
Hi All, Here I am again after many months of no contact with my dA friends. I'm doing ok and still searching for a woman. I have met some nice ladies recently and hope that these might develop into something eventually. I'm still Tablelander and still out there taking photos and wood carving and wood turning. However my membership to my local camera club is certainly teaching me plenty of skills that I might not have ever learned on my own. We meet fortnightly and in process of that look at each other's creations and comment on them. We also go on excursions every few months to go to places we might not normally visit. It's always more fun taking photos with like minded people. I am in process of turning my utility into a camper and am at this time respraying it to make it a little more presentable. However now I only need to finish the roof and get a solar panel to recharge my batteries and I can finally get out on the road of discovery. I look forward to this time very much and can f

Still In~n~Out

Journal Entry: Tue May 10, 2016, 11:39 AM

It's been a year since my last journal entry...
I struggled
with life,
with work,
with my own mind...
I feel as though I'm ahead of the game, and have reached a point in my life where I'm comfy with me.
Worked on my photography,
learned to do graphics,
hunted & missed,
fished a lot,
hiked a lot,
worked out a lot....
Spent time with my grandkids,
time with my grown kids,
bought a Jeep,
cried myself to sleep,
learned to talk to God,
you know...
the Creator of all things.

This is the first time in my entire life
that I have been alone.
No man
no parents
no kids,
just me.

I left home at 18 with a man that I "loved"
I had always
Lived with my folks my whole life...
Had 2 kids with that man,
ended up with just 2 kids...
and me.
But never alone...not ever.
Several men later,
and one more child,
still not alone.
Even with my youngest child
leaving home,
I was not alone.
Had a man,
I was
not alone.

This time,
I'm really alone...
it's just me,
And I'm learning to love me.
spring for joy. by candysamuels
Thank you Candy for the lovely pink-ness...
