I need a hammock in those trees. Beautiful light, Cirrelia. And... at the risk of appearing forward, um, you have a beautiful name. Where is it from? I've never heard of it before.
(I hope I haven't crossed a line, he thought, cringing a little on the inside.)

Awesome new pic

Excellent question Steve! I love Cirrelias name too and was wondering where it originated!
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Oh Steve, Cirrelia was my grandmother's name...Thanks for complimenting it...I know one thing, it was difficult having it as a child...Noone could pronounce it properly...teachers, students, etc.....That's one reason why I have so many nicknames. Janet can tell you about "Rabbit"....lol...Anyway, I appreciate your curiosity...I did look it up in Latin...means "of the spring"....Go figure :))
Paper Doll Eve - Over 30 days ago
Beautiful spring name, I will call you Ci, just to save characters on Twitter lol, beautiful name indeed, and great to have such an unique name

Thanks Eve...it is a blessing in disguise at times...
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
I love your name Rabbit!
Paper Doll Eve - Over 30 days ago
Why Rabbit? If I may ask

I'm a fan of individuality in all it's guises. You go girl! Where would the world be if we were all the same?
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
When Cirrelia (which always evokes a flower to me) was young she could wiggle her nose, and she was sooo cute they nicknamed her Rabbit! To this day she can still wiggle her adorable nose! I'm jealous! Creative Cirrelia is definitely unique!

Anyone else care to share their nickname??? I call Janet, Lady J...she's so regal.....Steve...you're next... :D

Hmm. I must remember I'm addressing a group of ladies...

Okay, here it goes...
I'm a mountain bike rider and every Thursday night a group of 15 or so middle-aged men who aren't quite ready to let go of our youth, put on Lycra, saddle up and head off into the darkness for 2 hours on our bikes. We arrive back at our camp, get a fire going, cook sausages and drink beers from around the globe. Needless to say, we all look forward to Thursday nights. However, as you can doubtless imagine, things in this environment get a bit blokey. (For you ladies in the U.S. that translates as caveman-like.) I'm sure you can imagine that we don't spend a lot of time talking about Picasso, Beethoven or Steinbeck.
Anyhow, about 2 years ago I fell off and broke my wrist. No lasting damage, it's all fine now. However, in Australia, once the crisis is solved, such occurrences are regarded as an opening for humour. Consequently, my nickname is Wristy Steve. Not so bad, I hear you say. So why has he had to remind himself that he's talking to ladies at the beginning of this tale?
And this is where I must appeal to your sense of understanding of the caveman-ness of the situation. You see a name like Wristy opens doors to other possibilites which I'll leave to your imaginations...

Lol Steve, ladies we should go biking on Fridays and talk about dresses and shoes, camp, put on some music, tell horror stories talk about men...
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Say no more Steve....as soon as you said Wristy...woohoo, it was immediate, right or left, hahaha, the young boys were told never to do that, something might fall off!....So much for your nickname .......Sweety?
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Nice nickname for a true gentleman...Wristy! Btw...I broke my wrist as a teen trying to roller skate :D

Just drop me in a chair by this shore with a laptop and I'm in writer's heaven!
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Lovely comments all around...Thanks Bernadette :)

Okay, who's next in this truth or dare on nicknames?
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Ha ha...well, I'm sure it won't be too long before a new initiation begins...
Janet Bradley - Over 30 days ago
Yah, lets here from Em and Paper Doll !!!!! What were you dags called when you were little?
Paper Doll Eve - Over 30 days ago
Eve is short for Evelin. Never had a nickname
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Em says she's been called The Mad Artist and Smithy....I think "Em" suits her best...Eve is very nice, too...very symbolic!

BEAUTIFUL!!!! It reminds me of going to the beach when I was a kid. It's all nature, but you make it look like every piece of nature has a beauty all it's own.
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Thanks so much! Ingrid you are so sweet!
Ingrid Zacharias - Over 30 days ago
You are welcome! I really enjoy your work. Your art work and photography give me such a feeling of tranquility.
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
You are inspiring me to go on a photo shoot soon...I was thinking about the Hampton Harbours.... :)
Ingrid Zacharias - Over 30 days ago
Sounds nice! Oh about the other conversation, I had several nicknames. My Dad called me "Honeybun", my Mom called me Ingimar, some of my friends called me "Zack", and my colleagues used to call me "The Queen" and my oldest son calls me "Mother unit". lol :)
Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
Which is your favorite? I'll call you the one you want...
Teresa Chism - Over 30 days ago

Cirrelia Thaxton - Over 30 days ago
