Time For A Hug......

The doors of "Soft in the Head" will always be open for those that need a hug. Lately I have seen more anger and hostility in cyber world than I care to think about...now like anyone I have the option of hitting the delete or off button... but when you see this hostility coming from those you have known for many years it makes one feel sad. We wouldn't be intelligent and caring creatures if we weren't passionate ones. I see this hostility surfacing in my much loved art community and dividing those I care a great deal for. Remember why you create and why art is in every breath you take...art is an extension of ones soul. You create for smiles and giggles and to give sunshine and life where little exists. It makes an unhappy day over flow with laughter and spark a twinkle in the eye of the one seeing it. It touches the memories of days gone by and captures the essence of that time so we can hold onto it forever! Don't let opinions and discussions escalate into a frenzy that eventually sucks the life from what we love to do.....we're friends, comrades and makers of smiles. Remember, in spite of our physical, religious and political differences we all belong to the same club...humanity! I am sending all of you a HUGE HUG from this ol' Softee. Now play nice!

Wow...well even though I'm not angry or anything like that...a HUGE HUG is always welcomed anyway :D. What a beautiful jester, and I do hope all who read it will feel much better.

Keep creating!

Bright blessings,

Well said, Pam. I've noticed as well that it hasn't taken much to find the negativity, anger and borderline hysteria these past couple of days...Every other discussion seems to be ratcheting out of control. But whatever our ideological differences, we should all try to come from a place of tolerance and understanding. :)

Hugs back atcha...

Thank you all for your caring words and support. I did receive one comment from the infamous "Anonymous"....the words were mean and spiteful and I felt didn't deserve a place here with all the warm fuzzies so I deleted it. Pam

Pam
I just recieved the most wonderful doll I have ever recieved in my life and it is all due to your wonderful creative nature and warm spirit. Rachael will warm my home with the love you created her with for many years to come and I love her as I love your spirit. I am sending you big hugs and much love and I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Your friend and the worlds dear Miss Penny. It is always so true, when they say, the good they die young. God bless her family and God bless you Pam.
