3 ½, 5, & 8

This used to be my playground.....
This used to be my childhood dream, the place I ran to, when I needed a friend.
Why did it have to end? and why do they always say, 'Dont look back', 'Keep your head held high', 'dont ask them why', 'Life is short',? Before you know it, you're feeling old, and your heart is breaking. 'Dont hold on to the past'. Well, that's too much to ask.

Live and learn, well the years they flew, and we never knew. We were foolish then. We'd never tire. That little fire is still alive in me. It'll never go away, I can't say goodbye to yesterday.
No regrets, but I wish that you were here with me.
Well then, there's hope yet.
I can see your face, in our secret place. You're not just a memory. 'Say goodbye to yesterday', those are words I'll never say....

This used to be our playground....
This used to be our childhood dream, our greatest escape....
This used to be the place we ran to, our secret hiding place....

Wishing you were here with me....

What's on the Other Side.....?

Why are there so many songs about rainbows, and what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, they're only illusions, and rainbows have nothing to hide.

So we've been told, and some chose to believe it. But I know they're wrong, wait and see.

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers, and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered, when wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it, and look what it's done so far.

What's so amazing, that keeps us star gazing, so we think we might see.
Someday we'll find it that rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me.

Have you been half asleep, and have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.

Are these the sweet sounds that called the young sailors?
I think they're one and the same.

I've heard it too many times to ignore it.
There's something that I'm supposed to be.

Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection.
The lovers, the dreamers and me.......

a kitty how-to

kitty thought that you might want to know how one of her friends (read: alter egos) makes their photos so silly and neat.

they use a green screen photography technique~
the photos are taken on a bright green background (but any color that's bright, super saturated, and not in the item you're photographing will do fine.), and then edit in photoshop to take out the green and replace it with something else.
below is a little picture tutorial that kitty made up with a pretty purple jellyfish that her friend made for a lovely chocolate astronaut. click on it for a bigger version!

here's the finished product: [link]
