Thanks :)

I chose it because I like how the viewer can choose to focus on the two separate faces looking at each other... or shift focus to see the space between them which seems to take the shape of a goblet (or grail... if you like. :D ).

Then, the viewer can shift focus again and see the two faces and the grail as making up one unified image.... (noticing that, if the seemingly separate faces weren't there, there wouldn't be a grail... and vice versa).

Also, I like how the entire image relies completely on the viewer...

Lol, oh yeah!! I forgot it was also a goblet, but I could see it after you reminded me. Nice. I remember there was a dress going around facebook last year. It looked a different color to different people...very strange.

Yes, of course...I don't know what I'm feeling right now. I got notification yesterday that my screening mammogram is abnormal. I'll need further testing. Not what I needed right now, but oh-well, when it rains it pours.

So, went to the mall today and bought some diamonds..lol! 1 carat for each hand...yes my husband was there, he bought one hands worth. Haha

Edit- My further testing was negative. Whew!

Sorry to hear. I know how anxiety-producing that can be. Hope all goes well!

Yay! Diamonds! :D

Hi,

I did edit my post to say the other testing was negative...whew! From now on I'll pay out of pocket for 3d imaging!

I don't have the diamonds yet. The new ring had to be sized. I should get it Sunday and the other (my wedding ring) I did a major upgrade on the diamond and won't get it until the 28th most likely. I'm usually super thrifty, I have a sweatshirt that's 31 yrs old, because it still looks/feels fine...lol. I hardly ever buy things for myself, so what the heck!

Anyways, for anyone who may care or is following this...I'm feeling pretty stable the past few days. Yey!

Have a great Christmas everyone, thanks for your support.

Oh oops! lol Overlooked that somehow.

Definite "whew!"

Good to hear you've been feeling pretty stable recently, as well. :D

Hi ya'll,
I've tried to refrain from posting here much, since, well, I was crazy. :lol: More politically correct, I was having a bipolar episode that could not be stabilized for a longgg time.

However, I'm happy to report that I've been cleared to reduce my medications and have done so with no side effects or relapse. So, this action figure/apparent person is in remission. Whew. It was quite a ride....no depression...all hypomania/mania :shock: ...it wasn't boring, that's for sure.

Nameste,

Dij♡
