    Hey there Ananta65,

    Nice going! I hope that the letter to your dad also makes its way up the Hot Hubs, too. Best wishes, my friend.

    Thank you very much, terenceyap07
    I assume not as this letter is personal. Other Hubbers don't get 'anything' (such as advice) out of it. I appreciate your thoughts.

      The contents of this letter is a truthful account written with a fairness that goes beyond nobleness. That is why I used the word "nobility" in my comments to it. Such control and consideration under such circumstances is rarely found these days.

      I hope that everyone will have the good fortune of reading this letter because I believe that it will help all of us in reassessing ourselves and our relationships with those whom we love.

      Some people teach with words, some others lead by example. This is one instance where both apply.

      Once again I thank you for writing such a meaningful letter, my friend. I personally have benefitted from reading it and relating my own life experiences to it.

    Why thank you, terenceyap. I had no idea. It’s a letter (translated from Dutch) that I have really sent to my father. The entire situation has been eating me for a couple of weeks and I ‘just’ felt the urge to publish it here as a way to deal with it for myself. I wouldn’t have thought that somebody else could benefit from it, but I’m glad you did.

    Wow, that was quick!  Indeed the eyes is the window of our soul.  big_smile  May I confess something?  In your first avatar, I actually shuddered the first time those eyes popped into my screen.  I was "scared." (still a child at heart) And then your heart came out through your words and the comments you left behind my hubs and fan mail.  Whew!  I felt relief.  lol

    May I ask you some more?  Why do you choose these seemingly scary looking eyes?  I am extremely curious... May you share with me why?  Hehe (hope this is not intruding) smile

    Ananta65posted 8 years ago

    I love confessions, Ripplemaker smile I’ve seen that reaction more often. And actually I liked that too, as it triggers people to look beyond the surface. Way too often we (me included) judge books by the cover.

    Sure, ask all you like. Well, first of all, I think my eyes are among my most powerful characteristics, so I like to put some emphasis on them. Second, according to Chinese astrology I’m a snake. And third, I like to play with Photoshop. Fourth, I can be drawn to the more sinister side. I like suspense, Stephen King, mystery. Fifth, I’ve never been to keen on exposing myself completely on the internet. When I first registered for an online community, my personal situation didn’t allow for that and ever since I have grown to like a little mystery. All of the above combined has lead to me designing profile pictures and avatars like the ones you’ve seen smile

    Hi Ananta great achievement.
    I thought I had achieved something Briefly when I just made it onto page 1 (very briefly and not as number 1) now rapidly falling (Page two this morning). All the great hubbers are leap frogging each other all the time.

    From what I've seen the position on that list is dynamic, very dynamic. Hubs 'wander' from page to page, but being among the hot hubs does lifft the number of page views, I can tell you that. And I attempt to read most hubs of the people I am a fan of, so I do my share in getting your hubs high on that list too, Sixtyorso smile

    Hi Ananta, thanks for the explanation.  Now I understand.  big_smile  The avatar that you have now is not as sinister as the first one. That one I truly shuddered.  Hahaha  As for your liking to play with photoshop, It would be interesting to know what kind of avatar you would design for me. I'm year of the pig, my best asset is my nose and I would like to be an angel.  An angel pig?  Yikes!  Hahhaha lol

      Oh my golly! Woh!  You just knocked me off my feet!  lol  It is soooo cute....an angel pig hahahah  No, no more halo please.  You are right, that would be overdoing it!  I like it!  Very much!  Now this is something worth keeping.  Can I ask a favor?  Could you affix your signature and email me a copy?  (ripplemaker@ymail.com) Pretty please?  And could I post it in my ripplemaker blog?   Thank you. Thank you.big_smile

    Yes, very nice photo manipulation. I bet you could write lots of great hubs on photoshop or gimp or whatever it is you're using smile

    Ananta65posted 8 years ago

    Thank you, but I'm not that good. I know a few tricks, but only a few. As a matter of fact, I'm going to buy myself a good book on Photoshop, since 75% of the time, I'm unable to achieve what I have in mind.

    Should I add a halo? Maybe, but I didn't want to overdo it wink

  27. ProCW profile image83
    ProCWposted 8 years ago

    I like it just how it is... smile

    If you were to add the halo, would it be added to the angelic ripplemaker, the angelic pig or both? smile

    Yes, yes, yes, yes smile
    Yes, you can ask me a favor.
    Yes, I can affix a signature
    Yes, I can and wil email you a copy
    Yes, you can use it at your own will. Post it, change it, it is all yours smile

  35. ripplemaker profile image89
    ripplemakerposted 8 years ago

    No way I'm changing it. I'm taking it as it is...with your signature along with the nice gesture of taking the time to make this one.  Anyway, I will just email you the link once it is up.  Blogger nowadays isn't working very well.  big_smile  Oh and I was laughing heartily at ProCw's comment about the halo thingy.  big_smile  That is so sweet both of you. 

    And so here I am sitting and grinning and suddenly this thought came rushing forth...Do Pigs Fly?  It's like Dumbo! lol

    Hmmm so ripplemaker watched and she smiled secretly. 

    For indeed if you look closely enough, they can.

    Gasp.

    Hahaha   

    To eyes that see the endless possibilities...
    Have a beautiful day ahead of you!

    Well, there’s sealions, seacows, why can’t there be airpigs? wink
    I couldn’t help but think of the song “Pigs on the wing” by Pink Floyd.

    You too, Ripplemaker. I’ll send you the e-mail later on

    I've finished posting it.  And I borrowed your profile pics.  Anyhow, blogger is kinda slow in the publishing thing lately.  You may have to wait.  I'll just popped the link here and also for your approval big_smile) once it finally shows up.  Thanks. smile

    It's great, Ripplemaker, I feel flattered. I enjoyed creating the avatar. And now it’s getting more attention than I intended, which sort of make me shy. Thank you for your kind words.
