Never Forgotten

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 13, 2014, 11:34 PM
“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.”

― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

It's been a very sad few weeks.  In addition to the recent loss of the amazing Robin Williams, our little DAZ community has also bid farewell to one of our dearest, finest members.  Jaderail, mentor to soooo many people on the DAZ forums (and elsewhere) has left us with holes in our hearts -- but a smile in them, also.  He was featured in my journal when he passed, so I thought I'd take a moment and single him out.  He will be missed.

Please remember... cherish your health and support education and research of chronic illnesses that affect  the body AND mind.  Chronic physical illnesses rob so many people of things many of us take for granted... and chronic mental illness is frequently invisible to the casual observer.  In all cases it is wise to remember that chronic illnesses can be debilitating and deadly.   There is so very much about our bodies and brains that still mystifies us.  But one thing that both of these men demonstrated in their lives was COMPASSION.  Sometimes the love and acceptance of another person is just enough to help us through another day.  And sometimes that love and acceptance follows us into another place, where freedom from those illnesses is finally possible.

Rest in peace, gentlemen.

Proud of our Wisconsin teachers. When the product of your labor is a child's future, you must stand up for what you know is right. Funding my publicly-educated autistic son's paraprofessional should come before funding freeway interchanges. Period.

I may be soft in your palm but I'll soon grow
Hungry for a fight, and I will not let you win.
My pretty mouth will frame the phrases that will
Disprove your faith in man.
So if you catch me trying to find my way into your
Heart from under your skin...
Fast as you can, baby scratch me out, free yourself
Fast as you can...

-Fiona Apple

I finally got a chance to watch the two Photoshop videos... Woohoo! Awesome! I learned a lot. Even some of the tricks I already know have taken on new meaning. Thank you!!!

Nice to know it was somewhat useful.  :D I really want to add one more to demonstrate the use of adjustment layers and blending of filter-generated layers, but I find I've taken on too many projects, lol! Ah, someday, when I win the lottery...

Well, should you win that lottery and add another video, rest assured I'll be there watching it! :D I understand perfectly the whole "too many projects" concept. Right there with you!
