I love these inspirational quotes by Mother Teresa :
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
“Never travel faster than your guardian angel can fly.”

WELCOME TO MY PROFILE

ABOUT STEAM FRIENDS :

:pals: Dear everyone - thank you so much for your kind words, beautiful art, good laughs, and all your lovely visits . My life is a bit difficult at the moment , so I choose to not be much socially active for a while .
Sending you all lots of smiles and good wishes for the days ahead :hug:
And some chocolate , of course :WoTB_Choc::WoTB_Choc::WoTB_Choc:

:amethyst: I am not very chatty , and I hardly ever share personal info online .
So no need to add me for chatting - I am on Steam to play games.
:amethyst: You will see me on activity when I can, in group activities, and I sometimes send a little hello to your profile. Or I might add thumbs up on your art, reviews or/and screenshots.
:amethyst: I prefer single play, so don`t add me for multiplaying.
:amethyst: If you have a problem with race, religions, genders - or have some other reason not to respect others for who they are, forget it.
:amethyst: I am older than most of you, and married. So don`t flirt.

:astar::astar: Respect is the base for all relations, always.:astar::astar:
:astar::astar: Whoever one is, and wherever one is, one is always in the wrong if one is rude.:astar::astar:

:moonflower: ABOUT FAIRY-TALES of all kinds, e.g. gaming :
"I believe there is something in Fairy-tales that does what singing does to words.
They have transformational capabilities, in the way melody can transform mood.
They can't transform your actual situation, but they can transform your experience of it.
We don't create a fantasy world to escape reality, we create it to be able to stay.
I believe we have always done this, used images to stand and understand what otherwise would be intolerable.”
~ Lynda Barry~

:mobchoco: FACTS ABOUT CHOCOLATE , and THINGS YOU CAN LEARN FROM YOUR CAT:
( Obviously the choco facts first, since you need energy to learn stuff :innocentstarfish: ) ;

:mobchoco:Chocolate is a Vegetable
~Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived from either sugar cane or sugar beets. Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category. Thus, chocolate is a vegetable.

To go one step further,
:mobchoco:Chocolate candy bars also contain milk, which is dairy. So candy bars are a health food.

:mobchoco:Chocolate-covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

:mobchoco:If you've got melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

:mobchoco:The problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car.
~The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.

:mobchoco:Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite, and you'll eat less.

:mobchoco:If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves. (We're testing this with other snack foods as well.)

:mobchoco:If I eat equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate, is that a balanced diet? Don't they actually counteract each other?

:mobchoco:Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger. Therefore, you need to eat more chocolate.

:mobchoco:Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

:mobchoco:A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Now, isn't that handy?

:mobchoco:If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?

:winkkit: THINGS YOU CAN LEARN FROM YOUR CAT :

:manekineko: Make the world your playground.

:manekineko: Whenever you miss the sandbox, cover it up. Dragging a sock over it helps.

:manekineko: If you can't get your way, lay across the keyboard till you do.

:manekineko: When you are hungry, meow loudly so they feed you just to shut you up.

:manekineko: Always find a good patch of sun to nap in.

:manekineko: Nap often.

:manekineko: When in trouble, just purr and look cute.

:manekineko: Life is hard, and then you nap

:manekineko: Curiosity never killed anything except maybe a few hours.

:manekineko: When in doubt, cop an attitude.

:manekineko: Variety is the spice of life. One day, ignore people; the next day, annoy them.

:manekineko: Climb your way to the top, that's why the curtains are there.

:manekineko: Make your mark in the world, or at least spray in each corner.

:manekineko:: Always give generously; a bird or rodent left on the bed tells them, "I care".

:manekineko: When you have something important to say, try to say it in the dead of night when you're *sure* everyone's sleeping.
There's no better way to get the attention you deserve. :loveblup:

Better to stay on the Sunny side of the Moon

My favorite poem :

THE STOLEN CHILD

Where dips the rocky highland
Of Sleuth Wood in the lake,
There lies a leafy island
Where flapping herons wake
The drowsy water rats;
There we've hid our faery vats,
Full of berrys
And of reddest stolen cherries.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

Where the wave of moonlight glosses
The dim gray sands with light,
Far off by furthest Rosses
We foot it all the night,
Weaving olden dances
Mingling hands and mingling glances
Till the moon has taken flight;
To and fro we leap
And chase the frothy bubbles,
While the world is full of troubles
And anxious in its sleep.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

Where the wandering water gushes
From the hills above Glen-Car,
In pools among the rushes
That scarce could bathe a star,
We seek for slumbering trout
And whispering in their ears
Give them unquiet dreams;
Leaning softly out
From ferns that drop their tears
Over the young streams.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

Away with us he's going,
The solemn-eyed:
He'll hear no more the lowing
Of the calves on the warm hillside
Or the kettle on the hob
Sing peace into his breast,
Or see the brown mice bob
Round and round the oatmeal chest.
For he comes, the human child,
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than he can understand.

~W. B. Yeats~

It finally works on PC !! Whoopee !!!
There are way more to Sacred 2 than "Hack&Slash" action/rpg !
When the game first hit the shelves , I bought one copy for PS3, - and I`ve played it for countless hours. Then I bought a copy for PC that did not work, no matter what we tried.
The reason why I want it on PC too, is that the DLC`s never made it to PS3.
So when I noticed Steams version, I could not wait to buy it again ! And now it works , and I am one happy gamer girl !
And I am certainly not alone.
I like my games to have strategy, stories, great character-development, humour,surprises, to have puzzles , be addictive, and to keep me occupied for hours and weeks - and months . The stories in Sacred may be a bit thin, but they are there , and all the other elements I mentioned are there 100% ! :)
I want to mention a beloved detail ; I can buy my characters new stuff and dress them up in the weirdest colourful outfits, and new cool weapons whenever I want to - The choises are close to limitless! I don`t know about you all, but I love shopping and finding stuff ;) :) :)
(My favourite weapon is the blowpipe - I really wish other characters could use it besides the Dryad. It is not a very strong weapon - but ut is superfast, and you don`t have to aim . And the skill to shoot several targets at once is perfect ! )

- one thing about this game, keep in mind that a lot of people have problems getting it to work. There are several topics about how to fix it in the forums, though.
I never had problems myself, - but I still prefer to play it on PS3. Mainly because of the controls - I am used to the PS3 controller.Like I said - I bought it on Steam because PS3 do not have the DLC`s.
Why it says I have not played the game for very long. I have actually played it for thousands of hours , just not on PC - this gameworld is Huge :wsma_happy:

Take a look at the gameplay :
