First things first, I went through my gallery (and journals) here and deleted some old things and re-organized other things. It was really high time I did that. Much cleaner now, got rid of some embarrassments XD

In other news, I totally got lost in the whole Tolkien mythology again. Whenever I think I'm over it, it comes back hitting me full force. It's been going on for about 2 weeks now and doesn't seem to plan on leaving anytime soon. So the best I can do, really, is to draw it all out. Well, at least my sketchbook is happy =) Prepare for some Silmarillion art.
As always, picking up that book has pushed me down this same weird emotional rollercoaster it has in store for me every time I give it another try. Right now I can't even bring my self to read the chapter about the Nirnaeth Arnoediad and further because I'm stuck in the strange denial phase of processing it all. Somewhere somehow I still think it can all end well, but reading the story just breaks my heart over and over again. Doesn't matter how often I read it, it just seems to be getting worse. And believe me, it's been many times, for at least 10 years now :paranoid:
Anyways, apart from being heartbroken for a bunch of fictional characters I feel strangely alive. I missed that feeling, it feels good to be back :D

Oh right, and in case anyone here has a tumblr acount and wants to follow me there: this is where you find me. Let me know if we met on dA, I'd gladly follow you in return =)

I notice you’re from Austria! I visited there years ago. Vienna is one gorgeous city!

I especially loved the Mozart museum.


I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t don't know much about their own

country, much less anyone else's.  :(


I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness

about what's going on in the rest of the world.


Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from

another country, if I've done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them

know that others are thinking about their home. :)


This update is about your home!…


GOD bless
