The Nowhere Man 'No need to disguise or to pretend,The Nowhere Man by CupofCharlie
Don't misconstrue and don't misapprehend.
There's nothing left, no fortress to defend'
'Make up something to believe in your heart of hearts,
So you have something to wear on your sleeve of sleeves.'

Every day he walks into the same store. Every day he walks the same route to the lower floor. Every day he looks at the same shelves of merchandise. Never buying anything. Never speaking. Just staring. He doesn’t make eye contact with other customers or members of staff. He just looks through the same items. Every day.
His entrance could be timed to the minute. Every mor
*The Anniversary*Elizabeth had seen the book during the view day at the auction. Immediately it had caught her attention. To be sure it was small but so beautifully bound in green leather. The book was old, no first edition but enough years were attached to the volume to make it interesting.*The Anniversary* by Delice1941
Its subject matter 'Wild Flowers' was an added attraction. When asked to be shown the book Elizabeth was surprised to feel the way she did. Delicate images from another age but so carefully drawn and water coloured. Each plate was protected by dense tissue paper. When the page was turned it was like seeing a flower through an early morning mist. The book had fallen open to a beautifully drawn image of a cowslip. Minute brush strokes and different shades of yellow so carefully considered, it created a familiar feeling. Reluctantly Elizabeth handed the book over to its custodian. The following week the image of the cowslip haunted her.
I am SO thankful for Project Educate because there is so much to learn about dA, art, photography, etc. etc.
Being an admin for twenty groups among my sites, there are times I get multiple submissions from a deviant that are really for a single submission. Either the deviant hits submit too many times or it is a dA bug, but regardless, when I send a member a message to please withdraw the "extras" I get the usual response, "Oh, I can't because I deleted them from my message center."
PE: Correspondence Messages
All of you should be familiar about correspondence messages in your message inbox.
You receive them when members or admins requested your drawing to their Groups or invite you as admin/member of a group.
They are messages asking you for permission if you want to be a part of a group or if one of your drawings may be submitted to their group gallery.
But you are also receiving correspondence messages when you request your drawing/journal in a group gallery or request to join in Groups.
We are all familiar to them. But did you know that you can check out past correspondence messages you had sent or received? They are not gone when you have deleted them in your inbox. The
Which explains how to find ALL correspondence whether or not the correspondence was deleted from the message center. The choice is in the dA drop-down menu to the left of the user name, and clicking on "Correspondence" brings it all back up!
The basic URL is www.deviantart.com/correspondence, but if that doesn't work use the drop-down menu to find it.
There is a "correspondence" option to the left of the message center itself, but it only brings up what is current and not deleted; ergo, I didn't realize I could bring up prior submissions, join requests or requests for deviations or journals into other groups to peruse.
I suppose it is true there is something new to learn every day
