Isolating Experiences Along the Web

Feeling somewhat isolated lately, I miss the correspondences in my inbox which stopped when our Yahoogroups moved to google. I suppose I should explain, that is why I might seem verly solitary these days. Please don't feel that I am withdrawing at all, and I certainly welcome emails directly from anyone who posts here.

After having had some problems with AdSense and Google over their unjust cancellation of my account and thus pocketing the few dollars I had earned by supplying them with and audience for the adverts, I closed all my personal blogs on blogger (owned by Google) and closed all accounts, such as googlegroups, which is why I've lost contact with with the group here, sadly. I feel however that it is important to stick to your guns. I feel I have been wronged and until and unless Google makes some effort to ad least enter into dicussion with me and treat me as a human being and not a number on the internet, I shall have to keep it this way. I will try to post here still, but it is much harder to remain connected wihtout the group correspondences that arrived by email when it was on Yahoogroups (not owned by Google). Why must they make life complicated and dehumanize us so?

So now I moved one former blog of mine to Opera Community - http://my.opera.com/alettames, where I post most regularly, though I do try to post here at least at the Hermitage blog.

It is still cold and damp here in Vancouver. Unexpectedly cold and I've been forced to spend much more time in be, to remain warm enough to function. That has resulted in a wealth of sketches, but away from the computer so mucyh there hasn't been much writing.

Well, I thought I should explain, and to say I do miss the corespondences, but have to stay true to my convctions also. If you've no idea what I'm talking about re: google you can read my epistle regards that topic at http://my.opera.com/alettames/blog/show.dml/110757

Not allowed

I was not allowed on the wonderful art blog with Alletta's current paintings. Please everyone look for her wonderfully colourful works. I tried to say:O Alleta: keep on and on making such beautiful things for us. What a cure your work must be for the long dull Vancouver days I knew so well. Your colours make me want to sing out, shout. You have given me joy. May I print some? Fran

Belated Valentine Card

I don't get mushy on Valentines Day.

So I was going to write a story ( as a joke...really a joke! )about a woman who wanted to give her love her heart so she gets this surgical tool and... come on it's Anita here so you probably know where this is going.

The I saw all these lovely images and poems and I thought..come on Old Girl there must be something you'd like to do for your Muses for Valentines.

So I thought really hard and decided everyone loves Kudos right? They don't make you fat, but boy do they taste and feel good! So that's what I'm going to do for my Muses.

It's Kudo Time!
Here we go...

No one else probably gets why I call these guys my Muses but they are and I'm sure they appreciate that after dragging me to write every single day I'm showing them off...so this is for them and if it grosses you out...too bad.




The guy in the hat is my husband,he belives I'm a real writer...How could you NOT be inspired by that?




Then there's my friend Heather...this represents the doorways she's opened for me. So a big giant Kudo for her too.



Happy Valentines to All My Muses
Anita Marie
