Beautiful Floral, Forests, and Frondescence

Severe allergies prevent me from outside activities I once loved doing, including gardening. But your art keeps me company and brings me much joy.

dA's Cats, Dogs, and Other Critters

I'm most fond of cats (raised many, none now), but also had dogs, birds, and horses. I like observing frogs and lizards and most all animals, including certain insects. I enjoy seeing what all of you have photographed, drawn, or painted.

dA Artists - Stills

Beautiful still life by talented dA artists. My most favorite art form is still life, including that which I try to do myself.

dA Artists - Traditional, Digital, Etc.

All of these are by wonderful dA artists. I enjoy looking at them very much.

Bio: Female, age 66. California born and raised except for 5 years in Arkansas. Married too young and too long (28+ years) until I divorced him. I have one son, no grand children. But I'm Aunty to many nieces/nephews, a great aunty to even more, and more recently a great great to two. That makes me smile!

Meanwhile, I'm in an unusual... complicated... almost (I said almost) hopeless... yet Very Loving relationship... with a man who is also my Very Best Friend. It began May 2011. May it continue here... and the hereinafter.

And if it's not already fairly obvious, I'm very candid and comfortable speaking my mind. It's how I believe we all should be. --Claudia, July 2014

My quotes, philosophies, and poetry: ©
"One thing I've learned in this long life of half joy and half sorrow,
it's Love that decides when and how it loves -- not I."
~~Claudia 6/2010

"It's not how piercing the comebacks,
but how meaningful the argument." ツ
~~Claudia 2011

"If the light be truth, I always choose the light.
If the dark be illusion in which to hide,
I choose to illuminate.
If in between I fall and must again choose,
I hope always to use the dark as the direction from which I depart, and not arrive."
~~Claudia 11/2011

:iconflowerredplz:About my literature:
I'm not a poet, per se. I dabble only. But I have been writing (and typing) in general ever since the age of 8.

Amusingly I began with plays in 4th to 7th grade that my teachers liked so well they invited my classmates and myself to perform one or two a year. What fun! Years later in junior high school I wrote a few finished and unfinished plays, then never again. More years later in high school and college were the obligatory essays, journals, quite a lot of short stories, mostly unfinished, and three completed novellas. Encouragement was rekindled every English and Creative Writing class when my efforts were graded highly and chosen as one of the best, if not the best.

Afterwards I went through a few decades of creative famine due to my situation and severe illnesses. And then I was hit with a stroke from which I almost died and which forced me to re-learn how to do most things, including write. I'm still recovering even after 24 years.

More recently I've been exploring and expressing with free verse, and the occasional short story and/or shorter six-word one. As for the novels I vowed to myself all my life that I would write, I'm still lacking the health and energy to dive into my characters and remain therein to the end of the book. And oddly, for better or worse, now that my life finally became my own I no longer have the desperate need to escape into an imaginary one so as to survive my reality. My reality may not be the greatest at times, but compared to my rear view mirror it's a vast improvement! For that I thank God. :iconflowerredplz:

Just A MessageI say,
make friends with yourself,
be at ease with yourself,
as the old adage "Wherever you go, there you are"...
You cannot leave yourself behind,
nor should you even try.
Let it go with you everywhere,
as both shadow and leader...
Learn, grow, make friends, and be at peace
with the one you first met
and will last hear with your last breath,
the person you know best...
an individual unlike anyone else
anywhere
at any time.

:iconsadbyeplz: Robin Williams. I will miss you so much. You were a genius and really a loving person despite your own insecurities and demons chasing you all your life. I wish you could have held on just another few hours or days or weeks, you would have risen above that lowest ebb. I know, been there, done it. You've been one of my favorites for decades, and will continue. I'm sorry you suffered. The world is much worse off without you, but those in heaven are smiling for your being there. How could they not. Hug Umber for me. xo --Claudia :iconheartcandleplz:

:iconautumntree3plz:
Makes me sad when I look out and see most of the many trees around this condo villa dropping dead leaves as if it were Fall, as hot dry winds rip them apart, shred the bark and create stumps. I long for misty cool breezes and green. This drought is more than depressing. Sad sad sad. Trying to cheer up with a bit of excellent jazz, piano, guitar, and Joe himself. (Later: I'm buying this album. Love them all!)
