Thanks so much for the welcome, all! And a special thanks, Servetus, for your support. I will get to everyone’s comments, but for now, must catch my breath. I am truly at a loss for words.

    Welcome to the world of blogging, Justmepurring. You and I seem to have a few things in common and I’m looking forward to reading your blog. You have already treated us with the gorgeous Robert Ashcroft shots of RA ( will I ever tire of looking at those?) and your fabulous Coastal pictures- it was a good way to start my day! Thank you.

      Thanks for stopping by. I’m curious now to know what we have in common, but I suppose these will come to light all in good time, right? Yes, Ashcroft photos are just fabulous. I have a theory that he admires RA as much as the rest of us, and manages to use his camera to coax and caress these beautiful images from Mr. Armitage. Then he slowly, slowly, releases them to us. Ah, such tantalizing agony! Can’t get quite as expressive about the coastal shots right now, but they are very near and dear to my heart, in fact, a part of me – thus the “esprit.” Glad you enjoyed them. You are most welcome.

        ” You see there are problems we (meaning husband and I) try not to over-stress about because they’re “fixable.” Relationship issues, financial woes, career choices, children’s’ issues, and so on – these will have a end to them. Somehow they will resolve themselves.”

        These words resonated so deeply for me. Not cancer but a potentially fatal health issue within my immediate family. Times when i would love to have the sort of crisis others’ seem to have.

        I sense we have a similar worldview.

        That and a love of TDH men..

        I’m so sorry to hear that your family is having to deal with a serious health issue. These are times when we would give anything just to have another fixable problem in our basket of worldly issues, instead of one we feel powerless to do anything about. I have begun to try to deal with this myself – how do we live with the unfixable problems – even before cancer came into the picture. It has led me to seek ways to look at life that push the limits of the traditional faith that I grew up with. But everyone has to take that journey in their own way and, hopefully, find some level of peace and acceptance.

        On the lighter side, (I’ve really picked up lots of little bits of knowledge since starting this blog. This is one of them.) I have to admit to being slightly confused on the TDH deal. So, as is my wont, I googled it and came up with – what I assume you intended – Tall, Dark, and Handsome. Also Total Dynamic Head, which doesn’t have anything to do with conceit as you might imagine, but is actually some kind of hydraulics term. Last, but certainly not least, was Too Damn Hot!

        LOL! I was meaning ‘Tall, Dark and Handsome’ but i must say i like ‘Too Damn Hot’.

        And i’m not going to say what i thought ‘Total Dynamic Head’ might mean but it wasn’t anything to do with hydraulics! You have to be so careful on these internet searches…
