This is beautiful, Daphne. What medium is it?

Hi D, how great you visited my Blog. The painting is oil on canvas.

D, I keep loosing the introduction text in my Blog. I have no idea why it keeps deleting itself. Do you know if the blog-spot server has errors posting introduction letters?

Here's the intro that I see. Is it the right one?

"Born in Amsterdam, below seagulls that lingered in circles above the smelly canals, I kept myself alive by breathing on. Once upon a time I began to write. Later, publishing house the Bezige Bij & Thomas Rap published two of my books. A novel (De Blauwe Prins) and a collection of short stories (Alle Vogels Van De Wereld). It may well sound odd to you, but publishers in the Netherlands happen to publish short stories. Actually they believe short stories are very hip. This is because we are a small but modern country. Anyway, last year I began to write stories in English and occasionally I could publish some of them. Stories appeared in Snow Monkey, Cadenza, Frigg Magazine, SLQ, Edifice Wrecked, Sleeping Fish, The Beat and in Dicey Brown. Stories are forthcoming in Inkstains and in Night Train. This Blog is about English writing in the Netherlands. Merely this Blog is about a woman who’s bored and married to a man who believes he’s a loser. This Blog is about ghastly weather and lost souls and about the filth of Earth. Just the regular Dutch stuff. If you visit this Blog, take your shoes off first, because you are on holy virtual ground."

You may just want to hit the refresh button after your page loads. I've noticed that after I add new stuff to my page, it doesn't show up for me unless I hit refresh first.

Nano, I know I have to hit the refresh button, and then it is there, but half an hour later it is gone again. I don't see it now, but I'll put it back up life to see if it is still there after 30 minutes. It keeps disapearing. Very spooky!

Super-weird. Now I'm not seeing it, either. Start the "Twilight Zone" music.

As I said, it vanishes after some time. Very annoying.
