@annalee Thank you so much for your comment on my new set, it really means a lot to me! You've been an inspiration to me ever since I joined the site. Your sets are always beautiful and often magical! Like in "Serpentine" or "familiar dream", and I love reading your smart introductions like in "liquid crystal" or "blushing". Thank you! <3

Thank you for the generous compliments lovely. Your thoughtfulness is always appreciated. Always adore your brains and beauty across the board ;) xoxo

You wouldn't happen to be in Montana lately, would you? I could swear I saw you in Bozeman. It probably wasn't you but she looked a lot like you that I had to ask. 

annalee:
It wasn't me, there must be a few like me meringue round the place. I should gather them up and form some kind of club or cult!

That would be something to see. I mean, there is no one else like you but still, a group of doppelganging gorgeous ginger beauties would be amazing. Especially with you as their queen.

I thought I saw you in the Joseph Cornell show at the Royal Academy last week, but I think it was a different girl with red hair who was standing watching his film inspired by Emily Dickinson... It is a beautiful show though, he make such poetic little worlds, lost worlds of a forgotten time, a time of forgetting...

annalee:
That is funny, I'm being seen in Montana and London and no doubt up north this week! I wish I had been there! I'm coming in October I think, I hope it's stil on. Cornells work is so touching. 

It has come a bit to my attention that you no longer wear your Key necklace on your recent sets, do you still keep it? It was sort of a trademark of you and I loved it so I dunno if you'll wear it again in a future set. Hope everything's going well Annalee :)

annalee:
Yes I still keep it!

I just read what you said Via (facebook) and I'd like to add, its the foundation you build upon that determines, what you want to progress into, be it simply of thought or action... one must build complex yet keep the foundation of the print simple.

someone don't social network much :P
annalee:
@zafluka No, I don't, I only have an account on SG. I still don't understand what this was about!

I'm a Yank, but I found your UK politics group and found it fascinating. You seem remarkably passionate and wise. Have you considered entering into politics? The world needs people like you.

annalee:
The scandal when my nude modelling was discovered... Haha ;-)
aubierr1967:
Unfortunately, that's a valid point I should have thought of. :( If you ran here, I'd definitely vote for you over another Bush, that's for damn sure.

Sounds like elections aren't going so well over there. Sorry to hear it. Hope it doesn't bum you out

But in a way it's quite sad and strange to see how divided this island is, it's literally yellow in Scotland (SNP) and blue in England (Conservative), does that tell you something?! But hopefully it's the start of some positive progress. Glad you guys voted someone more evolved in!

@annalee This mayoral election and our last presidential election have given me faith in the moderate middle ground.  I don't hang out there but I never believed that it really existed.  The conservative/liberal split is something that I find quite troubling. I posted that TED talk and a link to some interesting sociology papers detailing some of the ways conservative/liberal people think and make decisions but it drew more anger than discussion.  The thing that is most difficult for meis that the same information can be looked at and seen two different ways even when it is totally objective.  One of the key difference is hope/fear I think.  There is a book "The Culture of Fear" that discusses why we shouldn't be afraid of serial killers but the drop in real wages and the loss of civil rights.  It is very liberal and it is on my "to read" shelf.  On my conservative father-in-laws shelf is a book about how to trust your instincts to avoid violent situations called "the Gift of Fear" (it is probably a very good book).  I felt like I was in a creepy dream when I saw it as the contrast describes the split in choice to weight values differently that goes into our different decision making.  He also had a "Nothing Like it in the World" that describes the building of the trans continental railroad, but about the same time that came out another book "railroaded" was published describing how that period of history was the birth of political lobbyists as a component of the political system in this country (which is a big problem with the way our government runs). I get that I have a total willingness to accept what re-enforces my world view and reject what challenges it but I can get with a change in world view based on truth. How to speak to someone who processes information with a fundamentally different set of filters is still such a struggle.  Any insights you may have would be welcome (references to old postings is welcome as maybe you settled this all back in 2009)

I want to wish you a huge congratulations for having "8" earn Photoset of the Day! It is an exquisite set and totally earned the distinction. 

You definitely are an example of lovely life, you know ? For me, my firm conviction - good in this world that you are here ! I don't mean just SG - but it is how I have come to know about you. No, am a little more glad - when you are around or come to mind. Thank you, lovely one !   - C
