Well my friends I think I have come to the end of the road. I have been making an evaluation of my participation in sites like ipernity and reached the conclusion that the time requirements outweigh the benefits. It is true that the interaction with some of you here was invaluable interms of friendship, exploration of new ideas and techniques, etc...however for the most part I do feel that most of the interaction is superficial to say the least and that is not what I would like to spend my time on. I have therefore came to the conclusion that it is time to say goodbye. I would like to focus on building my website and to work on my artwork. I will stay around for a couple of weeks maybe--I don't know. For those who want to remain in touch with me please write to me via ipernity and I will provide you with my email address. Thanks to all for putting up with me here and I wish you all happy days ahead.
