As you can see, I have returned to DU after a brief absence... [View all]
something -- I don't know what -- happened but alluva sudden I was not recognized as a member of DU. I've been a star member for 19 years with the same name so what happened?
I didn't realize how awful it was not to be able to post threads and reply to other members threads. It didn't feel good.
Fortunately, I have a computer whiz (who is helping me with my self published book in terms of layout and design). It's a joint effort of an old lady and a young computer guy. It kinda works out fine: I get his technical expertise and he gets free art history lessons. And he is learning how to appreciate a beautiful thing in life, even if you don't particularly want to go to museums like I do. It was great to hear him say "Wow, that's beautiful!" when he was dealing with an essay I had done on Titian. He was helping me obtain photos of the works that had a requisite number of pixels to publish without blurring. (I was careful to use those that were under "fair use" in reproduction).
Anyway, happy to be back functioning here at DU!
