Just thought i should mention that if you have been watching me for a while you might have noticed a big drop off in the amount of journals where I actual chime in on certain subjects and give my 2 cents.
The main reason for this is lack of time. I definitely have views on many of the things that are taking place and I have received more than a few notes from old fans prompting me to speak on some hot topics or issues. What i tell them is that while I do enjoy having debates and an open forum to speak which dA has afforded me, it takes an incredible amount of time to read each post and respond and then re-respond.
I want to make sure that i answer each challenge and question properly and effectively and in doing so take a lot of time. I thoroughly enjoy reading all your comments and i learn a great deal of things and am alerted to new ideas and subjects that I haven't been introduced to as well.
The other reason is that being a part of UDON, I feel I have no right to sound off on my own views in a very loud and public fashion as it might be seen that they are endorsing me which is not the case necessarily. The fact is that I don't share many viewpoints with many of my co-workers yet they aren't sticking points for me against them. However I can't expect them to tow my line of thinking, and i feel i'm doing that when I take a strong stance on anything publicly.
Nonetheless I don't want some of my fans who are used to my more colourful journal posts to be disheartened. I haven't compromised my beliefs or morals one iota, and generally this industry leaves you alone if you keep quiet. For me that plays better into my own plans and goals.
So I will say if you have any question of me, on Islam or anything, feel free to note me and i will do my best to respond you promptly.
Otherwise sit back and enjoy the pretty pictures and ignore my babble-box lol.
I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.
Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!
