I remember the moments leading up to my discovery of colorlovers. It was while doing a search for "swatches," for an art project because I simply and purely love color.
Then I found this wonderful place and even more wonderful people here who have been so kind, generous and loving to me. I have learned so much from all of you and am humbled each day by your continued support. Thank you all so much for helping me learn and grow and change through direct and indirect gifts of hands, minds and hearts.
Thanks to Kim100 as a kindred spirit by helping me realize how to do the layout of three in a row.
My love of the visual world is paramount. I am amazed how my color perception and pattern recognition has deepened and grown since the time I began here.
I believe in COPIOUS loving; the MORE LOVE the better I say.
'"Theories of taste presuppose a notion of contemplation as transparent and unproblematic: we know the nature, degree and sources of our satisfactions as well as changes in them over time. Without this knowledge, our aesthetic lives would be no more than what Ted Cohen has called “a concatenation of atomistic expressions,” lacking continuity and coherence. Our very ability to direct and enhance our aesthetic experience—quite simply, to have an aesthetic life—is thought to be dependent on the reliability or authenticity of aesthetic self-knowledge."

I am not big on thanking others for following me, but believe me I am thankful; it is just a matter of feeling that somehow I'll have to live up to someone's expectations of me, rather than the basic acknowledgement that I have a "fan," which I find sort of embarassing. The same way, I feel when I am complimented or praised irl. I do however, thank others for all their loving and faving and I try to keep up with comments.
From what I have been told, there used to be a rating system, but that was set aside because it was a tool that could be misused. However, at times I do still wish there could be a way to at least double love and/or fav.
At times I am overly sensitive. I am very thankful to you for your patience with me. If you want to know more about me you can check out my bad me and my good me in these two palettes:
Being on this site with all of you gives me joy and
Love and good will to all, with almost always the best intentions in mind and heart - -
