“True friends and family will hold your hand in a hurricane to keep you from drifting away”.  ~ Fergiemoto

I came up with this quote and image yesterday, and coincidentally, Frizztext posted a cute story today about sea otters that hold each other’s hands while they’re sleeping to prevent the loved one from drifting away.  Check it out.

  1. Fergiemoto, this is so lovely, the whole shebang. You are right up my alley woman. I was going to ask you have your add the beautiful symbols to your photomanipulations, but I see you have a post talking about the first you did. I have a chop, but really haven’t used it yet. I love it. I must start and you are just the inspiration I need to do so. Thank you my new blogging bud and creative soul. Margie

  2. I absolutely ADORE this Etegami! What an inspired photo manipulation. Yes, we MUST stay connected to those helpful others! We must stay connected in love and peace!

  3. I love the words and the accompanying picture… Adorable. TY for your patience as I have been adjusting to a changed schedule in my life … Glad to comment again. 🙂

  4. Oh this is lovely! Both the image and the words.

    I have discovered, in my short time here, that sometimes two or more posts appears to be about the same thing at exactly the same time – synchronicity?

  7. I don’t see my post here…I thought I’d check … I went to post this to facebook and got interrupted by a phone call…short attention span !

    This is truly elegant and a new form of art to me. My granddaughter, Sabrina, is an artist, 20 years old, and studied the Japanese language for 3 years…I sent it to her also…Thank you so much for sharing this.

    And thanks for your “likes” on my blog…it means a lot to me.
