Kittens are the funnest.
Thankyou srain. That was unexpected...do you just go around randomly hugging people from time to time, for the fun of it?:D
I was thinking of you and saw a post of yours so wanted to give you a hug. I have you as someone I like to read what you say. :)
In my new home...and loving it.
What kind of an animal is that in your profile picture again? I forget the name of it- but I like it! :) I want to say it's a koala... but I don't think that's right...
I'm pretty sure it's a lemur...but don't quote me on it. I love the expression on it's face, and how it's giving 'the hand' (:
Btw, your new avatar is really cute!!!! Glad your feeling better..:)
Maybe, but it likely didn't have much to do with doodling a peacock. (grin) You just like peacocks.
I do like peacocks...a lot.(:
Philippa, re: Peacock symbolism (I have a celtic peacock tattoo) http://www.whats-your-sign.com/peacock-symbolism.html
Thanks Alba. I will have to absorb that I think. It's possible the woman who suggested this to me was projecting her own illusions onto me, and her own built up walls?
I'm doing an art therapy course, and there is a lot of transference that goes on there. Gotta watch for that. I'd like to believe that all the positive things that link says about the peacock are referring to me, and I want to be honest with myself.
I think I have a high degree of Integrity, and a certain nobility to me if I am honest, but I have to admit that I have placed walls up so men can't get to know me, so it's possible she is right? Always hard to know how much to listen to others in life isn't it...
(((((((((((((((sending hugs and peace))))))))))))))))))))))
Thankyou srain. I really needed that hug right now...and I do feel more peace descending on me come to think about it. What you give out returns to you so I hope hugs and peace come your way too.
Thank you so much for the kind thought. I can always do with hugs and peace. :)
Feeling crappy after sending a cutting email today. It was liberating at first, and now I just feel crappy.
HI Philippa, Just stopping by to say hi. Hope your doing well. I'm going to be honest with you Philippa, your avatar scars me a lil. I'm sorry. :( I hope I didn't hurt your feelings. But I enjoy your company on the forum. You're a very nice honest person. I would love to know more about your art therapy teaching class. Have a great weekend!! :))
I had to look real close at your new avatar to see what it is, but it's cute! Much better! There's so many types of art, it's crazy. Did you ever see that movie Mona Lisa Smile with Julia Roberts? Art history is almost exactly like that.
I watched the movie a while ago, but can't really remember it. Might have to get it out on dvd and see...but I can imagine. I'm kinda glad I didn't go to school though. Here at uni they are really hard on the students and you have to develop a pretty thick skin, plus it seems to be more about pleasing the teacher by doing what they say rather than pleasing yourself, which I think is what is more important.
yeah that is true there's teacher butt kissing going on in college. It's like if you want the degree, you have to go along with it to an extent, just enough to squeak by. That movie is one of my favorites always loved it watch it like 50 times don't ask me why.
((((((((((((gentle hugs))))))))))))))) hope you feel better
I'm sure he won't be hearing me anytime soon, but you're right about me hearing me. On another subject though, I'm wondering if you find my av pic 'creepy'? I've been told by another member that they find it creepy and I'm wondering if there are others who do as well? I've gotten good feedback from a couple of people, so it's interesting to learn more about individuals here...
I LOVE it!!! Not creepy at all! :)
Maybe I was just picking up on this persons vibe of getting creeped by it because I have, a couple of times now, looked at it and felt like it was a little creepy, like some sort of imposter peering out from behind cat eyes, spying on us from another dimension...like space cat. That could just be projections of mine though? Thanks for saying.
This was the post you quoted in full, which I removed as you had mentioned the members name in your reply.
You sent me a notification saying I quoted the entire post.
You did not mention that it was because I mentioned a members name, and nor was I aware that that was an offense to address a member who posted in reply to a thread I started?
Please, can you show me where it is written that simply typing someones username is an offense that requires notification.
I broke the entire quote up into segments...I did not quote it entirely. I KNOW I did break it up.
Hang on...are you talking about John Meyers post? That was like two sentences long. Are you seriously giving me a slap on the hand for quoting two whole sentences in full? It wasn't even long enough TO break into segments??
Cool Cat Avatar!
Why thankyou. Cats always have this otherworldly appearance and presence, and I feel this one is from another planet...watching us all with wise eyes.(;
Philippa we are doing a Southern Cross Station pick up at 8.30am for this month's Sunday walk if you are interested... just PC Anthony and I.
Thanks for letting me know nicolette. I'm not sure if I can make it that day though, as I have already committed to working on sunday from 10:30 til 5pm. Unless I can leave early to go to work? Will have to see, as I'm super busy right now.
No worries...just knew you took public transport if that made a difference. Work comes first.
Nice Av btw. Anthony with a shower cap! HA!
Feeling good...like a wall is coming down for me.
I love your avatar! :)
Thankyou, she's kinda spesh isn't she. Nice kitty(: Glad she can bring joy to others here.
Absolutely love your avatar! Hugs, Gloria
She's great isn't she. I'm feeling particularly in touch with my creative side lately, so it's a good representative for this phase in my life I think. Thanks for the comment.
I have a pure white cat and I know that the groomers do this food coloring thing. Would I do a thing like that to my poor Oscar? She certainly would scare the mice away? LOL!
Well, I don't know if food coloring is harmful to them, but if not, go for it(: It would wash off eventually, or they would lick it off from the sheer indignity of it all...
Philippa, Just stopping by to say hi and wishing you well.
hiya. I'm about to head to work, but you have yourself a good day.
Philippa! How are you??? I'm not on the forum all that often anymore. I suspect you aren't either. I hope all is going well for you :D (((HUGS)))
After a lot of soul searching and looking at current growth trends in employment I've decided to join the in-home health care industry. I may be starting a business development position with a new franchise here. Still negotiating with the owner, but it looks promising and I'm excited! :)
Oh great. I'm in the health care industry as well. I'm a masseuse and reiki practitioner now. I'm also about to start a course in Art therapy which means I can practise that when I'm done as well. It's an important industry to align ourselves with, and help change things in society. Yay us.
Wow...that is awesome Philippa! My therapist actually suggested that I look into becoming an art therapist. Good for you and your clients!!!!!
soooooooo relieved. Man, I love this place.
feeling relieved and a little elated today.
Firstly, I love your avatar - the warnings - well it is like being in the pool and the lifeguard blows the whistle - the lifeguard has a job dictated by certain criteria and so it is right.
But I really wanted to say - I am glad you feel happy, and warm, and loved - that is the best, is it not?
Thankyou Girl3. I'm having trouble remembering which posts the warnings come from though...it was from when I made a thread about what we have fun doing I think? In any case, that feeling of happy and warm and loved has kinda been replaced since those people kicked me off the forum I was a part of the other day. Nevermind though.
Hi Philippa - I have removed one of your warnings for quoting an entire post as you received two in the same day.
Thankyou Nicolette. I thought I had broken up the quote in my diary post sufficiently, but obviously not. Hope you are having a fun holiday season and you and Anthony are well.
I have moved your latest thread to the following location, as it not really a major accomplishment subject. It is more the slow additional things that lead up to major accomplishments.
Ok thanks. I wasn't really sure where to put it, but I didn't think it deserved a warning for putting it there either. But, whatever. I get that you don't make the rules here.
