I C U – damage there…, originally uploaded by tatyveli.

Hello friends, and my first post of this week will explain why a photo of my eye. As the tile of this post is saying – I would love to be able to cee you after placing a photo of my eye(s) in here…wouldn’t this be great? Fantasy for now however, but who know, maybe one day soon such things will be a possibility… πŸ™‚

As to the photo – since 3 days the right eye is hurting me a lot and I decided to take a few macro shots and see if there is something to be seen as with a simple mirror I wasn’t seeing anything. I took several photos of both my eyes, and the one you see here above is of the eye that is hurting. If you look closely you’ll see that there are two scratches, or lines, and both on the pupil and further on the iris.
I went to see my doctor and he is sending me to an eye specialist. I tried making an appointment for today but it will be on Friday, and until than I’ll have to keep the “pirate bandage” on my eye, and use some camomille bags on my eye to sooth the iritation.

What I did get as an advice from an eye specialist on Flickr is to check if there are antibiotic ointments sold here without prescription, and to see if this will help some. I will go to see for such shortly, in the hope that it will help me out of this pain and shortly.

My doctor told me that this is most probably caused by the long term pneumonia that I am having, and that it does not necessarily has to be an abrasion on the eye. And that these scratches are most probably old, and not causing the pain I am having.

The other news is that I purchased a domain name called KillYourself.org – hehehe, right, I thought it was such a very funny domain name, especially if you take it on the funny side. Imagine having someone who has made you mad, and angry as hell. I thought to send such people a note with a link on it to this site of mine…and imagine their reaction πŸ˜€ You could do that yourselves if someone pisses you off πŸ™‚

Talk to you soon my friends and wishing you a great day!

Heath Ledger Tribute…

Friday, January 25th, 2008

Heath Ledger tribute, originally uploaded by mick walters/Billy.

Obviously most of you heard, or read about the tragic dead of the young and handsome Heath Ledger two days ago. The news hit me badly because I admired this young and so talented actor very much, and could not imagine how a 28 years old could pass to the other side at this age, and with the brightest future in front of him.

The photo above is a tribute to him from a young and very talented Australian photographer – Mick, or aussiemick on Flickr. He is of the same age as Heath Ledger by the way, and I found it so well done of him to post this wonderful tribute… May Heath Ledger Rest In Peace, and Peace be with his family and dear once.

On another note, the latest pills were working while I was taking them but once the cure was over all of it returned to where I was before the cure. Will be heading to the doctor later today and will see where will we go from here on. With, or without medications, at home or at the hospital. Wish me well my friends, and send me some healing energy the same way, I am sending you my big {{{HUGS}}} :).
Talk to you soon here on Totally-useless.com .

What is the secret of being Happy?

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

KristjΓ‘nsbΓΊΓ°, originally uploaded by druzli.

How often have you asked yourself the question above? And how often have you searched for the answer on it? To tell you the truth I’ve always been searching for the answer and the once I did find were not satisfactory for me. Or too complicated, or I wasn’t entirely agreeing with what I was reading, like the artcile of Darshan Goswami, M.S., PE – “Simple Secrets to Be Happy”.

I tend to agree more with the view of Abe Linkoln, who said once: “A man is about as happy as He makes up his mind to be.” As to the question: “Can money buy you Happiness”, the answer is no, of course, money makes your life way easier however, and is far better to have an easy life while being unhappy, than have a life filled with struggles and feeling happy once in awhile. Or not?

What I did do is a list of the few pearls that I found in the research, and made these a daily routine for myself.

1) Starting my day with a smile while imagining all the beauties that are waiting for me to be discovered. Such as the photo above. See the colors in there? The vastness and beauty enclosed in it? The light on the horizon?

2) Being grateful for all the blessings that I have in my life. This certainly does help fight bad mood and depressions. Trust me as I know πŸ™‚ Every time that I start feeling sorry for myself I call myself and ask – how many things do you have in your life that you’re grateful for? And isn’t it wonderful to be able to be grateful?

3) Be helpful to others. This is one of those things that helps you bring things into prospective. And while helping others you do not think and dwell about your own “problems”. You forget these for the moment, and when you’re able to get back and review these again – solutions seems to be there way more easier than it seemed possible before.

4) Be generous. Yes, that is right. I feel so happy when I am able to give something to someone that I love. Or even to someone that I don’t know. The gesture of giving is making my heart sing πŸ˜€ because I am able to see the happiness in their eyes. Trust me, this one is a pearl πŸ˜€

5) Happiness and feeling happy is simply a choice we make. We decide that we want to be happy. Now, right this minute, and it is open and free for all of us to feel the way we want. No matter where we are, no matter the circumstances we live in or with. It’s free and it’s there for all to use.

Closing the post of today with an other stunning capture – Blue by RenΓ©e Ann Wirick – for you to enjoy my friends, and wishing you a Happy week ahead and a splendid Sunday πŸ˜€

Have you seen Montreal like this? ~Montrelicious~

~Montrelicious~, originally uploaded by ViaMoi.

Just a quick note so you know I am still here, living and breathing. The breathing isn’t going as good as it should be and yesterday I received new pills for a new cure which is supposed to cure me in a week. Yeah, right. I’ve become so tired of this long sickness, and of being so lifeless and tired all the time, and you know the cliche: Tired of being tired… But forget about it, as I am sure that soon enough I’ll be back healthy and well πŸ˜‰

The image of my friend Stu above made me feel better and I decided to show it to you, and ask how many of you have been to Montreal, and when you were there – did you expirience it the way I see it in this image? πŸ˜‰ I’d really like to visit Canada and go to Montreal and Toronto, and probably Ottawa. And if I could I’ll be taking the airplane tomorrow …

As last thing for today, how many of you know the color of your Aura?
The color I love most is purple and somehow I knew mine is Purple.
I definitely LOVED what a purple aura means, and here it is for you to read and check your own aura’s color if you wish.

Your Aura is Violet

Idealistic and thoughtful, you have the mind and ideas to change the world.

And you have the charisma of a great leader, even if you don’t always use it!

The purpose of your life: saying truths that other people dare not say

Famous purples include: Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Susan B. Anthony

Careers for you to try: Political Activist, Inventor, Life Coach

Wishing you a splendid day my friends and hope to be talking to you soon πŸ™‚

Tell me angel…Will you help Totally Useless?

Friday, January 11th, 2008

tell me angel…, originally uploaded by tatyveli.

Hello again dear readers and friends, (yeah, I know, my promise to write more often was not fulfilled even though I tried, and I really did try.) and I am back with a few new photos and bit of news.

For weeks I’ve been without voice and cannot, and may not make use of my voice. What is absolutely frustrating in it is that I must shut up while wishing to scream when mad or angry, and this is agonizing for me πŸ™ I am stillfeeling ill, and am coughing too much, having headaches most of the time and a some more highly annoying things. The only thing that is able to keep me calm is when I am busy with my photos, either shooting here at home, or using PhotoShop with photos of mine.
The above one is one of these experiments “gone wild” as I like to call these πŸ™‚
And I hope you like it as much as me and my Flickr friends do.

The thing about the voice is – I am unable to call people and have a conversation, such as: “Sorry but the works you hired me to do for you are not ready, and I have no idea when I’ll be able to finsih these…” Of course, I am sending emails with my appologies and all, but you know for yourself that it is not really the way people that are paying you like to be treated.

What I also wanted to tell you is that I am highly sensitive and use various types of Tarots during the week, 3 times a week to be exact.
This photo is shot 2 days ago, on Wednesday, and it is natural shot. Not treated with PhotoShop whatsoever, except for cropping the image. Do you see the magic in it?

Auspicious tarot of today...

The outcome was auspicious however and I KNOW that all will be fine and soon too, with me, and with Totally Useless, and with my sites and business ventures.

Wishing you a splendid weekend my friends, and know that I am here and do read your comments, even if not answering always on time πŸ™‚

Greetings from me and Cri :)

Cri 7878, originally uploaded by caroline santarosa.

Dear friends, the new year is here, and most of you are back to work on or off line. I will definitely try to write as often as possible, and get back to what I was doing with the Totally-Useless, paying attention to all those things that seem useless but often are not.
I found this funny shot of Cri about 30 minutes ago, and Caroline graciously allowed me to use it here. You could visit more of her photos via the link under this photo. At times I feel like doing exact the same tongue action, just as Cri on the photo, but I am not doing it for the simple reason that I become very ugly while doing it πŸ˜‰ So, while we think it’s such a cute sight while a cat is doing it – it ain’t that funny while we humans do it πŸ™‚

caught outside and smoking

Instead you could see a photo of mine with a face where guilt is written all over it… You see, I was not supposed to be outside in the cold, and shouldn’t have smoked either, while being still ill and coughing so much. But yes, I was caught… and will try to remain inside and smoking far less.

Wishing you a splendid weekend and talk to you soon…
