...I'd make this my house! I changed the name on this to Ethereal after I entered it, but it won't take! 06/03/06, Zhongshan Lotus Park, Zhongshan, China. Moments before a torrential rain that put an end to that outing! Accented edges on the background.

Thanks SO much for your kind comments. I am only seeing them today for the first time. For some reason, I'm not receiving comments on my photos at all, though I receive comments about others' photos that I've commented on. This has been going on for days, not one comment coming through, and as I generally enter one photo a day, I was beginning to lose confidence. It's made me realize how much comments from my fellow BP'ers gives me confidence! Gotta write to Heather and see what's going on!

  Thanks Chastity for visiting my gallery! I've had my eye set on yours for the past 20 minutes or so as I tie things up for the night, but it's 2:30 am and I've GOT to be disciplined! It's something to look forward to tomorrow!

  So sorry not to have responded, you sweet encouraging BPers! My comment notification is often automatically switched off at BP these days due to some tech problems, and I don't know when people comment. Lori, I don't have words to describe my gratitude at your amazingly kind comment! By the way, haven't been able to tell some of you, but I'm in the midst of moving to Japan---countdown---five days!
