dont worry, I am still among the living! 🙂 This is why it has been a while since I posted anything on my blog.
A few weeks after I posted about the death of two of my most precious Pines, all bonsai artists blog’s that were in the care of the AoB forum disappeared completely! Me and others tried for weeks on end to get any explanation from them about what was wrong, trough all the posible channels . But just until last week there was a small mail telling that there had been problems with the data whatshemecallit and that all was in working order again! Well as you and I can see, it isn’t allright at all! All pictures are disappeared from all the blog’s! I have tried to get any info about were they are and if the can be salvage and placed back. But Just like before, there is no answer what so ever on any of my questions! SIGH!! It is not even possible to post any pictures anymore!
Even if I could find all these missing pictures back among the thousands that I have, going trough them all again and than replacing them all here would cost me months! And I am pretty sure that all the drawing and virtuals I made over the years are con for sure! So I guess that this is the end for my blog. Loosing all this info off all my work over the last years that I shared with you all is a other crushing blow to me. And it wasn’t a very good year to begin with! The last weeks I have been posting some stuff that I have been doing on the IBC forum. But the amount off work that I have don over this past year has been very little. After my second back operation it took a while to recover, but there was a slight progress into the right direction. Until 4 weeks ago when I tried to swim in the sea, that was calling for so long during those warm day’s! The next Day the pains came back with a vangius and it has gone from bad to worse from then! So, I am realy disappointed and down at this moment, because the new plans I was starting to make again are out off the window again! But I will keep on doing what I love to do the most, so you will hear soon from me some were, some how!
Stay safe and thanks for your support and interest in my work for all these years!
