Focus Your Faith in God, Spirit and The Angels in The Light
Over these next few days, when many family and friends are worshipping in their church of choice, it is equally important for you to know that your heart must also be filled with joy. This means you should be paying respectful attention to beliefs of others. It also means that you should be rejoicing that the world is still a place of deep love; even in its darkest moments. When that is occurring, we see it as the perfect time for you to share the light within your heart. Be the beacon of contentment for many people who either cannot or choose not to absorb the perfection of the meaning of Easter.
After all, we see this as one of the greatest measures of inspirational symbols of hope. It comes to you from the highest of Ascended Masters. His resurrection was intended to be a signal of everlasting life on the other side. When you arrive back to that side, you will find a place that is permeated with pure love. You cannot escape it, nor be fearful on the Golden Side. Feeling the love of God and the land of angels cannot be fully understood by those in a physical body. Be warned that this is a much more intensified feeling when you get there by the many natural ways for the soul to advance.
We only want you to be thinking about the happiness of this anniversary with an intent that flows deep into the womb of the Creator. Know that you are blessed. It is a blessing that comes to you no matter where you travel because you are worthy and deserve to be treated with love and respect. You are perfect in the eyes of angels and will be released of your purported sins. Forgiveness is a divine attribute and one that we hope all people on earth can learn and abide by. This is one of the most important spiritual principles to live and breathe. With your faith in God, you have the power to accomplish anything. May your days be filled with the love you seek. These are The Spoken Words of Spirit.

Under The Hood…
Beneath the user-friendly world of the keyboard, monitor and mouse lies and often hidden world of wonder and beauty… the heart of the machine. Although I built my current rig a number of years ago, it still runs smoothly and without issue given a healthy maintenance and backup schedule. Whilst some will tinker under the hood of their vehicle, changing fluids, checking connections and pressures, replacing belts and plugs, this holds no interest for me… my computer is my everything… it keeps me connected to the world.
Thought it’s interface I live a good chunk of my life… my photography comes to life through the digital darkroom… entertainment from movies and music… education through YouTube and photography blogs… friendship through Flickr and Skype… shopping for sundries and big-ticket items… tedium with bill-payment and troubleshooting… it is often near the centre of my universe be it work or play… and as such keeping it running in good order is as important to me as my other activities that together form a balanced lifestyle.

Re-processed and uploaded 11/10/09 – First try at Zerene Stacker. Two images. I first tried another picture that was four images, more poorly lined up, and my computer completely refused to finish them; when it finally did, they came out with so many artifacts it was awful. The alignment tool doesn’t work too well apparently, so in the future I think I’ll try cropping them all to line them up better. This shot still took awhile for my wheezing old PC (1gb ram); even with every other unnecessary program turned off, it still froze on me a couple times. So until I get it sped back up, don’t expect many of these type of images. That said, I do like the results. The important face and other areas lined up quite well; although there are a few artifacts still (the hairs on his front legs doubled a bit, and every bit of dust on my image sensor was cloned during alignment so I ended up cleaning twice as much junk!). Still pretty pleased with the results, now if only I could fix the damage to his right anterior median eye 🙂
Thanks to Thomas Shahan for helping with ID – I could tell this wasn’t P. audax, but it was the first of this species I’ve ever seen. Phidippus otiosus – another one to add to my list of species found. I made the actual list now, and there’s a current version on the main page for my Salticidae set. Turns out I had a few incorrect IDs, and was able to pin others down, so I also changed a few titles and descriptions on other jumper photos to reflect that. Still have to finish changing tags, but I’ll get around to it soon.
Found down in some tree bark in Mohawk Park. I love the iridescent facial scales on this jumper, as well as his incredibly heavy proportions. Such an impressive-looking spider, as well as a new species for me! I had to re-photograph him to get some shots I was pleased with. The green was a much more complimentary backdrop for this individual as well, I’m trying to decide whether to delete the other shots. I wish there was a "scrap folder" option on flickr, so people who’ve collected or commented it wouldn’t be inconvenienced.

I’ve been doing a pretty decent job of staying off the computer, which explains unanswered messages. Sorry for that, but I really need to keep myself offline especially now that college is starting again in a couple of weeks. I’m not feeling that photographic at the moment though…once classes begin I’ll probably be more motivated. I feel really bad about not being able to follow the work of others as much and I hope I can catch up as much as possible when I can! I don’t like missing out on your beautiful photographs even though being off the internet has been really good for my peace of mind.
Yesterday I modeled for the amazing Andrea Pun and I can’t wait to see what she came up with! I got to play fashion model, which was absolutely nerve-wracking since I’m not in the least modelesque, but we had a wonderful stylist and make-up team and though I was nervous it was very fun. Check out one of the shots here!
