  • Just popped in to say hi

    Boy... it's been far too long. I just thought I'd pop by and say hello. It's been quite a year for me. After finishing chemo and radiation this past November... I decided to take the plunge and head back into the workforce for the first time in 12 years (this past April). Sounds crazy? Most people who have been through what I've been through, would generally go on a trip or take time off. I found that working keeps my mind off of the cancer and has really broadened my horizons so to speak. So... I've had very little time for my hobbies. I spend time at the end of the day reading and learning from Retouchpro as always and I just wanted to say what a wonderful group you are. The support I received and inspiration got me through a rough time. You were my support group - and I just want to thank you all!!!

    P.S. I've taken up photography and you can see some of my pictures here.....

    It's so great to hear from you. I think of you everytime I play "Salva Me" It sounds like you're in good spirits. I hope you'll stop by again soon.

      Hi Lisa,

      Good to hear from you again. I checked out a few of your photos, and it looks like you're doing an excellent job. I especially like the one of the hummers.

      So you're back to work? That's great! Whenever I have something I have to deal with, physical work seems to be the best thearpy for me, so I know where you're coming from. Best of luck in the future. Stay busy, and keep your spirits up.

          Hey Lisa! It's great to hear from you!! You've always been an inspiration to me and I'm sure many others. Thanks for pointing us to your photos - looks like you're having lots of fun with those! You're post on "what my camera means to me" was wonderful and rings very true for me!

          Thanks for stopping by - we miss you!

            Lisa -- think of you often, and am glad you stopped by to give us an update.

            Looks like you've been quite productive at Wet Canvas -- hope your work schedule always allows for some creative time.

              Too funny Doug... you know how I love a challenge!

              Thanks Ed, Danny, Jeannie and CJ - You always knew how to put a smile on my face - even if it was manipulated (LOL).

                I was just wondering if anyone has heard from Lisa lately. Hopefully she's staying busy with her camera and her work.

                  I'll have to check over at the WetCanvas site - she's been busy over there for the last year or so, I think.

                      Hey guys!

                      I just popped in for a second to say "Hi!" and to let you all know I'm not dead or anything.

                      I've been soooooo busy the last couple of months - moving, work, moving, more work, a very little socializing, and even more work...

                      I just...

                      I haven't been around for a while, but I wanted to stop by to say hello. It's a busy time of year, but hopefully I'll get around every so often.

                      Sorry I've been so silent the past week. I learned about two weeks ago that I had to make a trip to Viet Nam - and I'm writing from there now. It's been a whirlwind trip so far (I actually picked up my tickets and passport/visa at the FedEx office on my way to the airport!) and the connections here...

                      I just wanted to let you all know that I'll be taking a short break from RP. I've got a huge deadline that I'm working towards at the end of June and new tasks are being added to my plate almost daily. RP is usually a place of respite for me, but the past few days I've felt my stomach tightening whenever...

                      Greetings from the country. I'm glad to see everyone is having a good time while I'm gone and no problems have come up.

                      It will take me some time to recover from all this fresh air and quiet. It's just not natural to breath air you can't see.

                      I'll be back in a few days....
