Hi everyone. I’m PinkSapphire and I’m really glad to be here. I’ve come across lots of forums which discuss one thing in general, a hobby say, or a tv or radio program, but I haven’t found a forum for general social networking and making friends so this looks like fun, particularly as I have a fair amount of empty time, especially late at night, which I struggle to fill and I don’t watch tv.
So, let’s do basics. First of all, I’m sorry for the lack of pictures anywhere. Avatar, profile picture, anything. I have pictures, in fact I have thousands of pictures, but I can’t resize or edit them and I can’t choose avatars, so I always get stuck this way on forums. I have this problem because I am totally blind, and any pictures an videos I have are made for me by someone sighted. I know some blind people who take amazing pictures and make their own videos, but the knack eludes me.
I’m happppily married, there’s no family sadly. I have various chronic and very annoying health problems which prevent me working, but I manage our own small internet radio station, which is a voluntary, not for profit thing, is fun and keeps me out of mischief. I also am a passionate collector of reborn dolls, I have a YouTube channel and Facebook page concerning them, which also keeps me out of mischief, helps me make friends and makes me feel very happy in lots of ways. I also love writing, reading, shopping, and, as you might just possibly have guessed, the colour pink. You might ask why do I love it when I can’t even see it? To me it just says positivity in the face of the negative, joy in the face of things that try to get you down. I want and need lots of that.
I’m just a couple of years past fifty and it’s weird how things have changed since I passed that turning point. Some people, including my mother, want me to grow older gracefully. Um, no. That isn’t me. I’ll grow older with class, but I can’t be anything elss than I am, and that, as someone once described me, is pleasantly eccentric, from my pink streaked hair to the sparkles on my shoes. I’ll be chatting with you soon I hope.
