Searching for Inspiration...

And this is what I found...

One Of These Days by christosR  In Loving Memory of ABBAS by ErkanKalenderli  Cincinnati by KrisVlad  out there by ozonablue 

The Awakened One by ArtByCher  Love is the Cure by FreeMeadows  .Paper and Sound by IsaiahStephens 

This is just such a small taste of the incredible talent on this site!  I'm always amazed at what I find.  You should stop by and visit these artists pages individually, when you have the time.  I'm sure you won't be disappointed.  :thumbsup:

Melissa "Mim"
Artist | Photography
United States
Hi! My name is Melissa, but, everyone calls me Mim...or Mimi. I love my Min-Pin (Susie), Photography, Music, Running, Cycling, Reading and a ton of other things, but, not necessarily in that order. (Except for Susie, of course!) :love:
I also love double entendres. A lot, if not most of my picture titles have double meanings. Some people that view them may pick up on what I'm really trying to say immediately, while others--never quite get it. But, that's ok. That's how art is supposed to be. Derive from it your own meanings and interpretations. But, most of all...just enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by my page and if you'd like, take a look through my gallery. I appreciate any and all comments and critiques of my work. :-)
*NOTE* Just an update...Susie, my Min-Pin that I spoke of in the first paragraph, died in my arms at 1:50am, Friday morning, 01/29/10 in the ICU at a Vet. Specialty Hospital. I didn't want to change the order of "The things I love" because, she's still the number one and always will be! My heart is broken, but, I know she can see again, and no longer has to take insulin shots twice a day or have her treats spiked with medicine. R.I.P. My Little One!
05/25/01 - 01/29-10 :tears: :love: :heart: :hug:

Tea's Shelter Project

Tea's Shelter Project

My good friend Tea, from :iconteaphotography:, TeaPhotography, is running a shelter project - helping the animals from a shelter near her home. It's a project that is very near and dear to her heart, as well as my own. :heart: Click here… , and here…? so you can read more about it. Have a look at these wonderful animals who need our help and protection so much, and also, take some time to see how much of herself Tea devotes to these little ones. She really has a huge heart. :heart:

You're welcome!  :icongrin--plz:
Every night, someone thinks about you before they go to sleep,
At least fifteen people in this world love you.
The only reason why someone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you
There are at least two people in this world who would die for you
You mean the world to someone.
Someone that you don't even know exists loves you

When you make the biggest mistake ever something good would come from it.
When you think the world has turned your back on you, take a look.
Always remember the compliments you've received. 
Forget the rude remarks.
So if you are a loving friend send this to everyone on your list including the person who sent it to you.
Tonight at midnight your true love will realize they like you. 
Something good to you will happen to you at 12 in the morning and four o'clock pm tomorrow, it could be anywhere. Get ready for the biggest shock of your life. 

Send this to fifteen people in fifteen minutes!! 
Make someone else's day! Help get a smile on someone's face! Help someone out!<3 remember that your loved
=Fight for you
=Respect you
=Involve you
=Encourage you
=D (Big Grin)eserve you
=Save you

Send this to all your friends & me...... If you get 4 back you are liked but, if you get 7 back you are seriously liked.:iconsaaptewt:

Thank you so much for sending this to me!  Really gave me just the "lift" I needed this evening!  
Hope you are doing well.  Been such a long while since we've "talked." I've missed you!  :hug:  Hope the boys are doing well, too!  :wave:  
Your are welcome, everything here is going along well including the boys.  A little too much snow for my liking and we are expecting 10" Sunday into Monday with about 6" still on the ground.  Sure wish spring would hurry and get here.  Hope all is well with you, take care and stay well.

We've got and had way too much snow and ice as well.  Just had another round of both all day yesterday, and just finished up with it this morning. Always scary with that ice! Such a worry about losing power.  It gets so thick on all the power lines, but, so far, everything has stayed up and running.  :fingerscrossed:  Hope I haven't just jinxed us!  :pray: I'm wishin' and hopin' for Spring, as well.  I'd love to see some pretty little flowers come poppin' up outta the ground!  Any color but WHITE!!  I've seen enough white this winter to last for a very long time!!  :giggle:  

Glad to hear that everyone's doing well, even with the rough weather.  You'll be glad to know that Patrick is finally coming around.  He even jumps in bed with Eddie and me and tries to cuddle from time to time.  Eddie is NOT happy about that at all, tho, and growls and nips at him, but, then, gets afraid and hides on the other side of me, so, Patrick won't hurt him!  :ohmygod:  Just like "real" brothers!  :nod:  :lol:
