If anyone is in the NY area, I have some black and white photos on display at a local gallery. The reception is tonight. If you would like to drop by between now and the summer, leave me a pm.

I have been a bit homesick lately, and I wrote a poem today. The original is in Finnish, but I tried to translate it into English. Maybe it qualifies for my very first poem written in English. (And I am not depressed , it's just Midsummer Night today, and I'd rather be home.)
Words dancing in the wind
Further away from me
On foreign land.
I reach for
The nearest thought. The chill pierces my soul.
The words escape from my hands
In wild pirouettes
To the nothingness.
My fingers graze
The unknown as if by accident.
I breathe the words in
Quietly to not awaken
The desire to escape.
Subconsciously I adapt
To this strange land.
I long home.
ps. This is just my opinion in the matter.
That translates very well Tirlittan; but I am glad you did tell us you're homesick and not depressed!
I've got one of my 'stepdogs' portrait as an AV, so I thought I'd post the other here. I made these using Paint Shop Pro 7. I got a little carried away and made this one into a 'gift wrap' also!
I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.
Tirlittan Very nice. And nice photoshop work queenb.
