Occasionally, I actually check my userinfo, and I find I have a couple of new lurkers. I'd like to say hello and welcome to miss_ellie_2_u and timbrk. I'd love to know how you both came to find my journal and I hope you like my pictures.
miss_ellie_2_u - it sounds like you have some interesting ideas and projects in the works. I hope your life continues to improve.
timbrk - I'm sorry I don't speak Russian, but thank you for your pictures. I think the first of this set is particularly striking.
