Concept is very strong. I also appreciate the roughness of the piece, makes the idea stronger :)

Thank you so much! :hug: I'm glad you commented on that...I actually added the "roughness" after I posted this. I'm happy you like it :)

Gee...This one's deep. I believe this piece would speak to every hard working woman out there, especially those who are caught at the mercy of their situation, needing the money badly enough to do anything to keep it, and in the end, nothing gets better for them, they end up feeling they've lost their lives and are nothing more than puppets for money and greed...I've been there, and it's no picnic. I took the risk and left, and boy am I glad I did :nod:

I like this piece because it speaks to me, and I remember what it's like to be a puppet, and it's quite the experience to learn from...

I'm so sorry I've never read or replied to this! I feel awful! Thank you so much for the comment. There are so many things that can make people feel dragged down or used. The world can be such an ugly but beautiful place at the same time. I'm glad you were able to get away from that awful place.

Wow, I had to look to see how long ago I commented :giggle: It's okay, though, I know how it can be when the inbox gets busy with comments and the like :nod: Yeah, I was in a bit of a dark time, and I felt so liberated when I left, only to end up right back there one last time. Only the last time I worked in the office was two years ago. I was laid-off due to the boss wanting to hand my shift over to a previous employee that came back. I was broken by that company, and it's taken me over a year to fully heal from that hell. The healing salve turned out to be retail :giggle: I have now been a cashier for Pet Supplies Plus since last year, March, and I am in good health, physically, and emotionally. Good times have finally come my way, and I finally feel free of the darkness. The people I work for are great people, and I enjoy greeting other people's pets :D I finally love going to work! :excited:

Here I go replying late again, my gosh I'm awful!!  I'm very happy you are doing better now.  Stressful work environments have to be the worst.  It can literally effect your whole life.  I also used to work at a place that strained me and all the people I worked with.  It was awful.  It got so bad that it was effecting my personal relationships out of the job, which is absolutely ridiculous!  It's a wonder why places like that are still up and running.  One of my coworkers had to take anxiety pills because of it.  Eventually we all left that place too.  Everyone that worked there got along great... it just takes that one person to bring a whole crowd down.  It's even worse when they are above you.  Good thing there are better options out there :)

Working with and around animals must feel great!  They instantly bring peoples moods up.  I thought about becoming a veterinarian for a little bit because of that.  How can you go wrong with being around them all day?  But I'm going to try and go back to school for animation.  I have to at least be able to say that I tried.

Take care my friend!  Stay happy and be strong :D

Not a problem, it's always good to hear from you, even late ;P Yes, I can understand wanting to be around animals :nod: I enjoy greeting the animals brought into our store, and I'm just glad to finally work in a simple position, and things are actually getting better for me- I applied at another job, and they hired me on, and will supplement the money I bring in, helping to pay for bills, and provide for food and gas. I will be working for another store called Crystal Life Technology. I will be selling and educating customers on different types of rocks, crystals, and various tools and how to use them for healing and such. It's right up my alley, since I'm a recently certified Reiki Master/Teacher :D I'm not only going to help others find what they're looking for, but I will be learning so much to help me to gain more tools for my future practice :D The people there are also very nice, and I'm ecstatic that I got this job so easily :excited:

I could imagine how fulfilling becoming a veterinarian would be :nod: Living and working to help wonderful companions to live long and full lives under your care is a wonderful thing to strive for :nod:
