My birthday is coming up on May 21st ( two weeks from now).


I have one big wish I am asking for this year, and hope to somehow make possible.

I want to go visit my dad.


I haven't seen my dad since I was about 3 years old. We recently reconnected with each other this past December, when he found me online.


Me And Dad1 by leopardwolf




He stayed in touch long distance throughout my life. We lost contact and track of each other after Katrina. I searched for him online for years and never managed to find anything solid and all the contact info he ever knew for us changed when we lost our house. The one address I did find and send a letter to, was returned by the post office as "undeliverable, address not found".  I was worried I may never find him.

Then he found me. I have been so overjoyed with being able to catch up after all these years and have a chance to get to know him better and share stories and memories of childhood.

Our only form of contact has been via phone calls, texting, and online chat sessions when he can get online through the local library for a few hours at a time. He is a telecommunications contractor and having a hard time finding large steady jobs, so his money is extremely limited or else he'd happily be paying part of the expenses to have me come visit.


It would mean so much to me ( and him ) to be able to go see him and would hope to spend a week or so visiting. He's not getting any younger ( no offense dad ), and I want to have an opportunity to visit with him in person while I still can.  Many people never get that opportunity. I don't want to be one of them.


We'll need around $1,600 USD for this to happen.

I am estimating for round trip travel expenses, for having someone take care of my marine aquarium while I am gone, fuel, possible need for lodging (not sure I can make the full drive in a single day with my health issues ), food expenses for the trip and while I am there, and some extra spending money to be able to take my dad to do some nice things and for any unseen circumstances.


I'll be documenting the trip along the way, so you'll get to share in the adventure and the reunion through pictures and video.


If you have a few dollars to spare, I would be eternally grateful if you'd consider contributing to giving the gift of spending time with my dad in person after so long apart.



I'd create a crowdfunding thing for this, but didn't have a lot of success with them in the past outside of friends helping ( thanks again you guys! ).  I'm not sure if it's the kind of thing people would care about enough to help, since it's not a medical necessity ( sure it is! ) and I really don't have a lot to offer in return besides art and creative things or my supplies and materials for such things. I could do dog and cat training and behavior consults in exchange. Website and graphics stuff too.



While this doesn't have to happen by May 21st, I am hoping to make the trip within the next month if I can raise the funds.


Thank you for taking the time to read.

About Me:

I am a creative and passionate individual who holds a deeper, feral part inside herself. I appreciate art in all its forms. I work in vast and varied mediums and techniques. I am always open for a challenge. My strengths are in various crafts such as making jewelry, pyrography, and sculpting.

I work in traditional and digital mediums. I am always open to commission. If you can dream it, I can find a way to make it a reality.

I also enjoy writing, and have always been an avid roleplayer, mainly using White Wolf's gaming systems and inspiration drawn from the World of Darkness.

In my spare time I wander the wild places of the world. I am inspired by nature in all its forms. I love animals, and share my life with a comical cast of critters. I do a lot of volunteer work in both domestic and wildlife rehabilitation.

Thank you!  I've seen a lot of nice art through the group so far. I wanted to get a feel for it before I started offering any submissions. I didn't see mention of a limit on how many can be submitted per day/week/etc so I planned to ask.

Would you still be in need of contributors? If so, I'd be inclined to help find more awesome fantasy work to share.

Thanks again!  :)

I think you might have me confused with someone else. I'm female. If you are referring to the pictures of the iron pour show that I captured, I appreciate the admiration. It was a fun event to watch. :)

No worries! Apologies it took me this long to respond. I wanted to share the website of the head artist and his foundry team who actually do the iron pour work that I took pictures and video of.

Maybe it's the same person you thought of, maybe not. I'm sure there are other people out there that do it, but this show in particular was by Kelly Ludeking and KRL Metals:

Enjoy!
