Welcome Back Ipernity!

A New Year and a New Ipernity, and Oh, What a Day…

I've really missed ipernity. Even though we could comment and move our pictures around in chronological order, It just wasn't the same without being able to upload pictures. So I mostly stayed away the entire time it's been unable to update its database.

I thought I had a handle on the effects of Covid on the world. In fact, getting out to go camping for an amazing three months did wonders for both of us! But then the virus went spiraling out of control, numbers skyrocketed, people became more horrible than ever and I'm right back in the depths of a very gloomy depression.

Add to that the simply incredible US election year. I loathe politics. I detest Trump even more. To have this spoiled, uncivilized brat rousted from his undeserved seat of power was a beam of golden light. But of course it tripped his switch of complete and utter insanity, followed by unfathomable chaos and then an attempt to kick off a civil war…this could not actually be happening, right? What seemed like it must be some stupid Lifetime movie was actual reality, where people were getting killed and outrages were unfolding everywhere.

Yesterday I discovered that ipernity was back online in regards to uploading pictures and I was overjoyed to see this! But with everything going on in the news, and wrestling with my doldrums, I just couldn't get it together to upload anything.

I am posting this outrageously colorful dahlia today (photographed at San Francisco's Conservatory of Flowers) to express the fireworks of joy that I'm feeling to have our ipernity back! It symbolizes the happiness I feel about today's second impeachment of the Great Embarrassment of the US, and as a shining beacon for a better, happier year ahead. The vaccines are rolling out, a new day dawns before us and things are going to get better!

WELCOME BACK IPERNITY! Here's to healing for all of us!

This is a beautiful photo, Janet. I too, am so happy that Ipernity has managed to get this sorted out and we can now upload again.

I know how you feel about this horrendous situation you all in the US are suffering. I am watching CNN at the moment and they are discussing the Impeachment Order. It seems as if it's going to be a fact. I'm just terrified that if Mr Trump is forcibly removed from the White House, his "army" will rise up and there'll be Civil War. It's too scary. It's only a week til he has to leave anyway and so wouldn't it be better to wait until after the inaugeration to call out the impeachment. That way he's already left and they won't have anything to complain about. My heart is full of feeling for you all over there.

I am so sorry you are feeling depressed again. With weather like this - me too!!!!! I'm so cold most of the time and I find it hard to keep my breathing under control. I don't think the cold weather is helping much neither.
