Most people are dishonest in the first stages of a relationship. They'll either wear make up, or shave, or trim the downstairs garden to make some kind of good impression. We don't reveal those dark parts of ourselves to others until we know we won't be rejected, or at least hope we won't. We're vulnerable us hoomins. Delicate and sensitive for the most part. The "trying to impress" comes from insecurity, most of us are looking for validation from someone outside of ourselves. It's not just women who act one way, with someone and another way with others. Most of us do it.

You see it more in young people who don't yet know who they are. I don't think there's any malevolent intent (of course there are some truly messed up people out there, I'm not discounting them) for most people. But then again, I do tend to be open and agreeable and believe in the core of people there is a kernel of pure goodness. Perhaps that's niave. I don't know. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.

Light, I liked that vid, she was very portishead/morcheeba.

I know this is turning into War and Peace but I have a cool favourite animal story.

White Fang by Jack London was the first non curriculum book I read for pleasure. It changed my life in many ways. I'd walked down the street bumping into things reading it. I'd run home from school and go to my room and devour page after page. It was my escape from my pretty dark home life. It ripped emotions out of me and I immersed in that world completely.

It began a lifelong connection with wolves. I was obsessed with them. For years I'd planned to become a conservationist, but life led me into motherhood and my love for them was only ever a wish to see them some day.

Years passed. Decades. Then, the summer before last I went to stay with a very unusual woman in her converted barn. That night she said,

"I'm just off to feed the wolves"

I laughed, thinking she was calling her dogs wolves. She asked me if I wanted to meet them. I was all ready to meet a few rottweilers or GSDs but in a large enclosure there were two huge, I mean massive wolves.

Hand over mouth I sobbed. Quite uncontrollably I might add. They were utterly magnificent, majestic, divine creatures. Never, ever would I have imagined they would actually be better than the book. I felt an enormously powerful energy from them, regal even. One came up and I touched his paw and paid homage. It was an encounter I will never let leave my heart 😊

I love wolves too and so does Wis and others in here. I just adore animals!
One of the characters in my story lines is a white wolf.

Can't have my headphones on right now to listen to your vid as I am waiting for the delivery man. I'm having a steak, mushroom and cheese sandwich and a blond brownie.

Hey there!

I'm gonna take myself a MM break in preparation for the two hour block of the new Roseanne show tonight at 8..

For those who don't know/and/or are interested, they are replaying all of this season so far . I have dish and last week I missed most of the episode with David's return due to technical difficulties..,

Tomorrow I'm headed into Lyndon to buy seed, we lost a lot of snow today with the warm temps and we are expecting rain, which should knock the last of it down.

/hugs all

Respectfully,
~meathead

All I could find was Kzeniya Zharkova, and some thing I can't read in Russian, but I don't think that is the artist, I will dig deeper.
It is very well done.
This is what it would look like for an avatar with the correct size, I may try it out.
