  1. I love the coloration on the trunk. Such a rich coloring. Perfect. (Btw, u have no business having such a great signature. Seriously though, it's a great signature.) It seems to me that even w/out leggings, she has patches on her knees. Maybe representing past wounds from life. Man, this poor chic really needs some uplifting in life. To the artist, the art has his own meaning of course. Other observers might see other possible meanings via their own interpretations. A lemon can represent something that never had a chance. The tree could represent her life & the lemons are things that could have been, but didn't have a chance. In English, a 'lemon' can mean something that's broken or defective. She might realize that some of the world will see her as a lemon, whereas she knows the beauty & potential there. She would be sad that the world interprets the lemon aspect wrong - in a negative way. Also, have you heard this saying: "if life hands you lemons, make lemonade." But a person can't really clothe themselves with a lemon tree. She, like everyone, needs resources. Some have more than enough of that, some have enough, & some don't have what they need. As Christmas approaches, it reminds me: Matthew 25:35-40: 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

    speeding tree 02

    Cool pic. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Let it speed, let it speed, let it speed. (To the tune of 'Let It Snow.') ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Trees come flying at the speed of sound to show you where it all began. Trees come flying from the underground. If you could see it, then you'd understand. Oh, when you see it then you'll understand. (To the tune of 'Speed of Sound' by Coldplay. Hey, S, I hope you're not one of those that hates Coldplay. If you are, sorry!)

    Hey, S. Beautiful. Neon lights, dayglo eyes. A city lit by fireflies. And purple trees! : )

    Memories-Part II

    Capris? Capri pants? You never told me they were capris. (If they were.) But capris (shorter pants like that) are lovely. (Those are great.) This drawing seems simple to a casual observer, but it seems to me that it has a lot of feeling to it. Also, the purple accents through her hair are great. Artistic. Maybe even slightly punky. I love the positions of her feet (& lower legs). From the neck up, it seems to me to have a Japanese anime sort of sensibility. And yes, I did notice the different kinds of leaves on the ground, including what looks to me like leaves from an oak tree. And the space around where she is laying down is altered by her presence. I see the detailing around, for ex, her feet - the lines that represent that alteration - the way that a sheet would be pressed down & slightly wrinkle (radiating outward).
  5. Beautiful. Lovely. "Still Nobody gets me." Hmmm. I think I get you, Chris. And maybe her leggings are in the washing machine at the moment w/ a load of clothes. And maybe she knows that the leggings are part of her identity - at least to you - and she's concerned that until she gets the leggings back, she will be separated from you. Did you ever think of that? You didn't? Are you sure it's not inconsiderate of you? JUST KIDDING. But seriously, this drawing was a great idea.
  6. Nice. I like. (All except for the spider right by the woman.) I see the black & white rectangle as a building. I wonder if that's what the artist meant it to represent. (Is the whole thing an album cover?)
  7. Diane, you were asking about the added shows, but the response you got only mentioned the "last...sale" & "last time," so I wonder if your question really was clarified.
  8. Thank you, Baja. And thanks smsully & jeffwalsh for weighing in also.
  9. When the latest email from u2.com says "If you have already used your presale code, it is not valid for further use..." does it mean 'if you have already used it up - to buy the maximum 2 tickets?' Or does it mean if you used it at all - even to buy just 1 ticket for 1 of the 1st-announced shows - then you can't buy a 2nd ticket with it for a newly announced show? (I bought 1 ticket to one of the NYC shows that were first announced.) Looking for a definitive answer from one of the official u2.com-meisters.
  10. "We are stardust, we are golden...& we've got to get ourselves back to the garden!" ~CSN&Y.

  11. I made my purchase for the Garden during the presale & I'm definitely not a 1-percenter. (Or a 2-percenter. Or a 10-percenter.) It took me over 3 hours, but I finally got what I wanted. I'm not the only one who had those difficulties. People's experiences sometimes had things in common & sometimes varied. Some got theirs in about an hour & a half. I know someone who got hers for a different venue (outside the U.S.) in about 5 minutes. I see you're a subscriber, so what I wonder is whether you saw the announcement of the tour & presale in your email on the day it was sent. I think of how easy it would've been to miss that announcement until the next day or day after - I think of how I would've felt if I had skipped accessing my email for just that 1 day & missed the announcement until later during the following day or until it was too late. What I was thinking could be done differently in the future is to give more of a heads-up for subscribers - instead of announcing the presale the day b4, announce it 2 days b4.
  12. MAX: All's well that ends well. I went through the procedures u recommended & the process did get better, but because of the time delay, I was being offered seats I didn't want, so I finally just tried a different night & all went fine. BIGWAVE: Thanks for everything.
  13. VERY UNUSUAL PROBLEM: U2.com won't let me log off. go to u2.com to log off - not here in zootopia I tried that. Still wouldn't let me log off. I finally just closed the windows tab & did the rest of what u suggested (cleared cookies etc..logged back in). Will try buying tickets again now.
  14. (Just a note: Caps in my previous msg aren't shouting. Just highlighting.)
  15. VERY UNUSUAL PROBLEM: U2.com won't let me log off.
  16. whats the first 5 characters of your code - U215A or U215B Sorry Bigwave! Just saw your question. It's U215A.
  17. Thx for the suggestion. Tried & it's been telling me this forever: "Searching for tickets. If you refresh or leave this page - you'll lose your place in line!"
  18. Same here. Over & over. Wonder if their system is kind of crashing due to heavy usage at this time.
  19. When I said it won't grab the tickets for me, I can tell it's trying - a little circle keeps going round & round, then I get the timeout note & have to start all over.
  20. UPDATE: Presale code has been accepted a number of times now, & the system finds me tickets that I accept, BUT when I press 'buy,' the system won't grab the tickets & take me to a screen to enter my card info - I wind up at this: Gateway TimeoutThe proxy server did not receive a timely response from the upstream server. Reference #1.14ff4f17.1417708208.23e660bd
  21. Madison Square Garden takes you to Ticketmaster which is fine until you enter the presale code. Trying since 10:00 am & it's 10:06 am now.
  22. Where are u located? Info I have: New York City, price range including fees - (not just for standing): $48.80 - $312.40. Highest price would be standing area.
