Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
                 Mother Teresa

        Every man dies. Not every man really lives.
               William Wallace



           People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway.

            If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.

           If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.  Succeed anyway.

                If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway.

            What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.

            If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.

             The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.

            Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.

           In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.

                                 Mother Teresa

If you have taken the time to view my self portraits..you might note a slight... emotionally charged tone... alas...this is the ONLY place I feel I can vent... it's so hard at times... smiling and trying to keep pretending... when ...face it... life sucks...

So..forgive me it I am bitchy, testy, emo, or whatever the hell you call it... I am worried.

Worried I am going to die alone and like in a ditch...or surrounded by cats... which would be a hell of a lot better than dying surrounded by little dogs in creepy sweater vests...

So, yeah...welcome back Shana... yaa...y

On a slightly more positive note... I am going to get back into art... and photography... Hopefully, I will get out of my pity pool and out in the field soon.  

Love and skittles!

oO I like the new way of editing your journal...very handy.

It's been a very wild 2011 thus far... I went from being trapped in a miserable situation that had become so toxic I worried that I was going to become poison.

It's amazing what someone whose a good true friend, someone who is there for you no matter the day...the hour...the reason... I am so fortunate that I have such friends...

Tomorrow, I am leaving behind 9 years of lies and manipulation and I am charging head first into the fray of life.... and I am beyond scared.... but I love a thrill...and what is life worth if you never enjoy the ride?

Make sure you check out the amazing artwork of someone who first introduced me to traditional art... although his work and world is filled with naked  chicks and  dive bars... awesome!

Find Me Here
Speak To Me
I want to feel you
I need to hear you
You are the light
That's leading me
To the place where I find peace again.

You are the strength, that keeps me walking.
You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.
You are the light to my soul.
You are my purpose...you're everything.

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

You calm the storms, and you give me rest.
You hold me in your hands, you won't let me fall.
You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.
Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?

How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

Cause you're all I want, You're all I need
You're everything,everything
You're all I want your all I need
You're everything, everything.
You're all I want you're all I need.
You're everything, everything
You're all I want you're all I need, you're everything, everything.

And How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

The Death of Me...


have you ever woke up one morning and realized that the person you were when you went to sleep... is gone..and in her place is someone .... shiny and new and yet darker... promising and yet threatening at the same time... like someone opened a vial of poison on your sleep and it slowly seeped into your skin...

I am not sure who this new me is... in many ways she scares me..and in others.... she dazzles me.

Echo of the Silence

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 29, 2010, 7:03 AM
I have not been around much lately.  
To be honest I am really lost in a vat of dis-inspiration!

I cannot really think of what to do artistically right
now with digital art...
so I think I will focus more on photography and stock.

As you see I submitted some use in whatever way you wish stock...
I will add more... one thing I hate doing is spending
a long time working on something and having no outlet for it...
due to restricted stock.

I am not saying there is anything wrong with stock artists
wanting certain rules followed in/when using their hard work...
there is nothing wrong with it at all...
but when the end result means I cannot do more than stick
some tape on it and hang it in my dA gallery... well...
I need and see a need for more stock that is less restrictive.

I have always appreciated the stock providers on dA and numerous
other sites out there offering free stock...
I just wish there were more unrestricted stock that was
quality and higher res!

So, I am going to attempt to offer some...
perhaps in the meantime I will find some inspiration!

Comes The Dawn

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 2, 2010, 11:53 AM


It's been quite awhile since I did an actual journal entry here,
it seems like I never really feel that I have anything worth saying,
other than hello and blow a few kisses,
smack a few fav's and comments then disappear back into the abyss.

My better, fangier half got me a computer which was very sweet of him...
but its been giving me a lot of issues and will not do much more than
freeze when I try to work with hi res images in psp. :(

Summer is here, and its hotter than Hades here....
I wish I lived in some cooler climate with penguins or something...
heat gives me migraines worse than my normal run of the mill ones
that simply make it feel like my brain is exploding out of my ears and nose...

Other than the bitchies...

I do hope to be submitting on a regular basis again...

I would like to work more on the photography side of the art....

so wish me luck.

:heart: to you all!

moroka323 is dedicating work to all of her watchers on their birth month!
Being exposed to her gorgeous gallery is gift enough, but to take the time and be kind enough to celebrate those who she already has made an impact with...is just a testament to the wonderful person she is.
Here is the September Dedication: My Birthday was September 21. .:there is light...:. by moroka323

I wanted to also showcase some more of her work, and give insight to why I started watching her work quite some time ago!  Her work is epic in scale and the emotions each piece evokes.  It is and has been a pleasure to watch her gorgeous work and become inspired by it.

Insect Reflection

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 23, 2009, 5:22 AM


Defined: It represents our individual insignificance in terms of the entire mythical collective... or I was drunk during that episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer...

Either way, it suits my mood right now and where I am at mentally.  

I used to live here... I would stare at art...and drool over the gorgeous works of other artists, and slowly I actually even created my own art...some of which was purtee dammned good if I may say so myself.

If you look through my gallery, you'll see the decline of art... which was replaced with gorgeous family pictures...of babies and sons who grew into men whilst I was not looking!

Anyway... I am back... and I missed dA and you all!

Special Thanks to :heart:SBV:heart: for mah shiny subscription!  
Thank you Baby!

So, with that said I am featuring the talents of one of them.

Some would say I am blessed.  
I am blessed with someone who not only adores me...
but knows me well enough to know just where to touch me!!

Yes, in the camera isle!  

The love of my fangy life, got me a new camera.
It's a 12mp Kodak camera.  Kinda small, and very nice!

I can't wait to learn to use it better and hopefully it will add to my quality of photography and to our stock account!

So, yay to great boyfriends who should be nominated President of the Best Boyfriend Union!

Ok, I do not usually like to post journals when I am feeling pissy, but honestly, I am starting to get a little annoyed.

I was thrilled to see the critique option.  Finally, we can give and receive honest feedback on each others efforts, and it will improve everyone of us in the process.

Well, I have added two of my own deviations to be critiqued.  And.....

crickets....

nothing...

does this mean they suck and do not even warrant a critique?  

Did I miss a memo about paying people off with skittles to give me some even small idea of what they feel I need to work on more...what I do well... anything??

crickets....

I have offered my opinion on several pieces... I tried to be honest and give something valuable... however... no one is giving me their opinion...

what will it take to get some of you people to give me your opinions?  

begging now...

crickets...

My art...seems so lifeless lately.  I seem to have lost inspiration...or so I thought between work and life... until I looked at some of the amazing creativity of some of you here on dA... you stun me .... amaze me... and make me have nice visual orgasms!  Thank you for reminding me what art is supposed to do... and why we are here.

News of Interest

Have you noticed the sudden lack of ammunition available to gun owners and even law enforcement?  Should I worry that some unknown being is hording all the ammo?  Maybe its time to invest in a crossbow and a sword... the sword..the highlander's sword.

UnEmployment is up....insanity is up.... ammo is hard to find unless you want to murder innocent people.... gas is going back up  and I cannot find my fricking camera's memory stick.

Life surks!
