  • It’s been said she was blind, too.
  • There are some days I watch/listen to this Great performing, hundreds & hundreds times a day. I love it. If I could ask only for three wishes, one of them would be go to “André Rieu & his Johann Strauss Orchestra live performing O’Fortuna from Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana”. Just if this came true… I know. I will die there.
  • “WordPress” is censored whole through the geography which I come from. I have to use special software/proxy which disables most parts of WordPress and its branches automatically. Most of those useful/beautiful options and facilities that you can use in your WP reader/dashboard, don’t work for me. WordPress is the only powerful, elegant, beautiful, safe and eternal platform I can access. I try my best to do everything correctly but if you notice some disorders here, in WP reader, comments, etc.; I hope you can understand me. And of course, I am so sorry. Please feel free to drop a note for me to remind anything seems wrong. (I will paste this paragraph to my “about” page, too.)
  • Maybe I change this post’s photograph later. I am not much satisfied with it.
  • Please, don’t blame me. If I had better facilities, the results were much better.

mecum omnes plangite!

  1. Your style is so unique … I love the piece. Of course, I don’t think I’ve seen any of your work, to date, that I haven’t been in awe of. You are so very talented. 🙂

      1. The thanks go to you for sharing your truly unique style with us. Your whimsical drawings are delightful — a real joy to observe. You should be very proud of your gift.

        We (the Orples and I) are posting everyday on http://orples.net . I switched hosts so I could try to earn a little money with my site, to be honest. There has been confusion with my links, which I’m still working on … Even so, we’d be honored to have you visit/join our neighborhood. My page “Rules of the Game” gives a lists of blogs I sometimes use material from, then link back to. The link below allows you to toggle down through our guest posts.


        You might be following my OLD blog, which I no longer post on. I know a lot of my followers are still linked to my old format and I am slowly, but surely, reconnecting with them.

        Please come see us. In the meantime, I will be looking forward to your next post. 🙂

        1. Great thanks!
          You have encouraged me to work more and move ahead. THank you so much!

          That’s such a good idea! Your blogs/sites are really interesting – definitely to follow!
          I am so happy to have journeyed into your blogs. Your work is lovely and I am looking forward to reading more!

          Well, the problem is that the “like” button on your blogs/sites doesn’t work me.
          It is disabled for the reasons I mentioned this post. I can use “like” button only in WordPress reader.

          Kind regards and best wishes, ❤


          1. I will ask my son why you are having a problem between the two formats. My RSS (follow button) is about 1/2 way down on the left margin … with an invitation to join us in Orpleville. Your problem might be on my end, I am not sure? I am following you, so when you post, I should see you, and you can link back to my blog from there if all else fails. My ‘orange’ title button is my home key, just so you know. I was a little slow in realizing this to be the case, thus the reason I mentioned where start begins at all.

            If you would like to become a part of our neighborhood, leave a comment, and let me know, and I will put you on our list, take a screen shot of your lovely work, throw the Orples in the scene with a little caption introducing your blog, complete with a link back to your posts. Then, hopefully, you will screen shot my post and do a little ditty of your own introducing the Orples to your audience and link back to my post or better yet, the category ‘Visiting the Neighbors’. Everybody feels the love. 🙂

            Whether you choose to join our ‘Orple Adventures’ or not, by all means keep on keeping on. Also, check with the local hospitals and restaurants in town to see if you can display your work. Eyes need to see your talent … you have a gift the rest of us could only wish for. Treasure it, and use it and never stop believing in yourself.

            I am deeply humbled.
            Of course, I will. I am going to change my theme in near future and I’ll make some changes, maybe.
            That’s a good idea!
            A million thanks from the deepest part of my heart.

  4. Lovely illustrative work! I think you would enjoy a poem I wrote and my son’s cartoon illustrating same. He has great talent (cartoon) but does not realize or appreciate it and, I guess, too busy doing other things (music) in his life. Let me know if you want to see it and I will email to you.
