« on: July 15, 2015, 02:54:50 pm »
Oops I still forgot to do the July event!

Sooo, for the rest of July AND August we have a choice of

SOLITUDE
FLIGHT
STAR


September is Earth, Wind and Fire

October is Half
Currently playing...umm nothing much.
TWD No-Man’s Land but getting  very bored with it very quickly.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.

Shows how out of it I have been of late. Totally missed noticing you had started this thread. Bummer how quiet it has gotten this side of the forum.

Here's a shot taken ten minutes ago that covers Solitude and Flight!

Gatecon! I am so glad you posted a photo! It knocked me out of my state of inertia and onto my computer.

When I submitted the word "solitude," the first two photos are what I had in mind...first, the solitude of my hospital room and, second, once home, the view from my bed, both with hours to become very introspective.

Two months later, even though I am still hobbling, still in pain, with my activity level still vastly restricted, I'm seeing daily improvements. I am beginning to dream about solitude in a more pleasant way...the day (soon, please!!!!) I can once again enjoy the solitude of the hiking trails around our Canada home.

Hospital Solitude June 2 - I will say, if you have to be hospitalized, what better than having this fantastic panoramic view across Oakland to the San Francisco skyline. I enjoyed a couple of beautiful sunsets and one awe inspiring moon-set.


Home Solitude June 3 - also, Dreaming of Flight as in fleeing! Okay...I have more than a ceiling fan to stare at, but it does become mesmerizing when you are bored.

Selkii, sounds as if you've had a rough time! Really hope things continue to improve for you and you're back to your normal bouncy self soon!

Here's one for flight. A welsh seagull with a little minor tweaking!

SOLITUDE

Cally enjoying a catnap.
I should've videoed this too as her dream must have been a very active one. Not seen her twitching and jumping so much while asleep before.

Perhaps she was dreaming she was FLYING as the STAR of her own adventure.

Is anyone up for a September word or words?

If so and in keeping with the name of the month my suggestions are:

Earth
Wind
Fire


😁
