Today's Spotlight is on :iconphotosbykev: or rather his request for help in bringing this information to a greater audience. As my own preference is for wildlife and animal photography I thought I would do what I could to help in this endeavor. I have also created a stamp for those of you that would like to post them on your journals.

"Santago Rare Leopard Project - Threat of closure"
</acronym>


The Santago project, in the UK, is under imminent threat of closure unless money can be raised to fund a dramatic increase in the cost of public liability insurance required to keep the project running. The aim of the project is to breed the most endangered types of leopard, particularly the clouded and snow, to be released back into the wild in an attempt to avoid their extinction.

An unexpected hike in insurance, along with critical illness of owner Peter James, puts the popular Rare Cat Project, Santago, under threat of closure unless money is raised for his partner Jackie to continue.

A popular attraction with many photographers and the destination of many photography workshops, Santago was started in 1989 by Peter James and is now home to a variety of Clouded, Snow, African and Black Leopards as well as Puma; totalling 14 big cats.

Photographers who hold photography workshops at Santago, or have done in the past, include Keith Hughes, Chris Weston, Andy Rouse, David Hemmings, Brian Hall of EOS Experience and John Wright of Photographers on Safari.

Unfortunately, Santago have recently experienced problems with troublesome neighbours and to make matters worse Peter was diagnosed with a terminal illness just a year ago and is now in a critical state. To keep the project alive Peter's wife, Jackie, will take over the business, but she has to acquire a dangerous animal licence to allow Santago to continue. This licence requires public liability insurance, now only provided by specialist insurance companies, and initial estimates suggest this will cost over £7,000, an unexpected and dramatic increase from the previous £180 cost.

While providing 24 hour care for her husband, Jackie now has the added pressure of raising the insurance money by 31st December. If the sum is not raised, Santago is in danger of being closed down.

ePHOTOzine has stepped in to help raise awareness and prevent the project from closing. We are appealing for donations to fund the cause and help Jackie and Peter keep the rare cats.

If you can help in anyway to promote and support this valued Wildlife Project by donations or journal features I would be extremely grateful.

Youíre a relatively carefree person who likes spending time alone more often than with company. The home and social life arenít such an important factor to you as maintaining your independence away from the rabble of modern society. You are a hermit! I found this answer oddly funny considering my star sign in Cancer, and appropriate.

Wolves, Predator or Prey?

Today's Spotlight is on :iconmidmad: or at least the journal. My friend Sun-Seeker asked me if I was aware of this, and I was not at the time. Though I have expected it ever since I read the change of status in the Grey Wolf's endangered species title. Please, go read the journal, and read the following rant as well further down on my page. It's not my words, just a reposting of a newspaper article. Those that know me, know where I stand on this issue. I also want to encourage you to get involved, this is your country, your earth, and your world. Ohh and please, add the stamp to your journal, spread the word.

"Wolf vs. rancher: new chapter in Old West dilemma"
</acronym>


Resurgence of the predator imperils livestock, giving teeth to an old debate.
By Todd Wilkinson | Special to The Christian Science Monitor
BOZEMAN, MONT. – More than half a decade after Canadian wolves were reintroduced into the American Wild West, their nightly howls still spook ranchers, fearing for their livestock.
Despite killing at least 40 farm animals in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming over the past year, these predators of fairytale legend have been protected from the farmer's rifle by the federal Endangered Species Act.


Now, however, there is a growing backlash against those restrictions in some corners of the rural West. Politicians and farmers have successfully pressured the US Fish and Wildlife Service to hunt down several packs of wolves in recent weeks.
But for conservationists – who view the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone Park and central Idaho as a major victory in the campaign to restore wild ecosystems – there's concern that they are witnessing a resurrection of a cultural enmity that doomed lobos to annihilation in the region half a century ago. They're worried that a handful of states are pushing hard to have the West's population of 550 wolves removed from protected status. Already, in Boise, Idaho, the state legislature has passed a controversial law that gives ranchers the right to shoot any wolf the moment it sets foot on private property – regardless of whether it actually menaces livestock.
More immediately, environmentalists are vexed by a recent spate of government-sponsored wolf killings.
• Earlier this month, federal wildlife sharpshooters destroyed an entire wolf pack in Idaho – condemned for preying on four farm animals, including a sheep that had been a young girl's 4-H project.
• In southern Montana near Yellowstone National Park last week, four members of the Sheep Mountain pack were put down by biologists after wolves ran through a horse pasture and were suspected of eating a cow.
• In the northwest corner of the state, members of the Ninemile pack were destroyed after llamas were killed.
Yet by far the biggest debate erupted two weekends ago, when all 10 wolves from the Whitehawk pack, which inhabited forests along the East Fork of the Salmon River near Stanley, were destroyed.
Killing wolves that develop a taste for livestock is part of an agreement the federal government struck with agrarians when wolves were reintroduced from Canada in the mid 1990s, says Ed Bangs, who oversees wolf management in the West for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
"I find it remarkable that given how many wolves and cattle and sheep we have out that there isn't more predation," Mr. Bangs says. "Wolves are not decimating the livestock industry nor are they driving any ranchers out of business."
Although the conservation group Defenders of Wildlife has paid out more than $200,000 compensating ranchers for losses, cattlemen say they don't raise livestock to be eaten by wolves. And Steve Pilcher, executive director of the Montana Stockgrowers Association, said many ranchers still resent the government reintroducing wolves at all.
Mr. Bangs, one of the federal managers who ordered the killing of the Whitehawk pack, says he knew the complete elimination of the pack would cause an outcry, but not one that would result in hundreds of e-mails from angry environmentalists from as far away as Europe. However, he justifies his actions on the rationale that they prevented wolves from inflicting serious economic harm on ranchers – and before the predators could teach the behavior to other pack members. He predicts that as many as 50 wolves could be killed this year to prevent problems.
"I don't like to see dead wolves, but another way to look at this is that our ability to have some flexibility in killing wolves isn't an example of failure," he says. "Rather, I view it as evidence that wolf recovery has been a success."
But Ralph Maughan, a political scientist based in Pocatello, Idaho, who is vice president of the Wolf Recovery Foundation, says wolves are being overcontrolled.
"Idaho is a classic example," he says. "Even though the number of [predations] on livestock and pets has actually gone down for the last three years, wolves have been killed needlessly in the last few weeks and I wonder where this trend is leading us."
Federal agencies spent nearly $15,000 hunting down and destroying the radio-collared Whitehawk wolves, though the livestock the wolves killed were worth only hundreds of dollars and ranchers are compensated for the losses.
In recent years, the Wolf Recovery Foundation, has donated several wolf collars, equipped with radio transceivers to help government biologists track wolves. But, in protest of the recent Whitehawk killings, the group says it will no longer donate collars for wolves outside Yellowstone. "We gave those collars with the understanding they would be used to promote conservation," Maughan says. "Those collars were used as tools for eradication."

I am constantly amazed at the way people resonate here. How you can feel  the emotion in their endeavors. While I'd never run across this account before in my habitual browsing I'm glad to say I've found it now. bitchinblack created a wonderful entry for the contest, one that stirred my mind and emotions today. But that is not all, for I couldn't just write her feature here without seeing the rest of her art. I was blown away by the intricate manipulations, the metal work and her whole demeanor if you can call it that.  The feel of her page I suppose. It struck a chord.  So, I couldn' t pass up sharing some of my favorite pieces with you.

Random Brutal Sex Master (RBSMf)
</b>
We almost called you Brutus the Uterus. But we figured you wouldn't understand, and rightly so. We don't understand either. So you are Genghis Khunt: master of man, bringer of pain--riding your way to conquest after conquest. Your sexual avarice is legendary. You've already had an unusually high amount of experience, and, still you look for more.
You intimidate many. You make no apologies. Personality-wise, you're carefree and relatively easy-going. You don't plan things out ahead of time; you tend to live in the moment. Of course, this can cause some damage when the moment happens to include a screaming orgasm with his younger brother. Hence the 'brutal' tag we've given you.
But you know what, take five seconds to lock the doors, and you'll be fine. There's nothing wrong with a little sex, or a whole lot.

"Fire and Ice"
</acronym>

by Robert Frost.

Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.


Two extremes, and I've blown both hot and cold alot recently. I am most often attracted to the colder months, but some of the worst things in my life have occured at the same time. You'd think I'd dread them. Instead I'm like a child during that first snowfall, that first hint of chill in the air.

Ohh don't get me wrong I'm still the first person to want to curl up beside a warm fire, light candles, drink a hot cup of chocolate or tea.

I don't think that's strange. I'm sure there are quite a few people that would say the same, but I think I am often the same inside. I've been told I have a dead, cold tone in my voice if I'm angry which I don't hear. Anger is something hot for me, if you understand, I mean I explode, rage and then feel guilty. Of course I can also carry a fight too far, something inside makes it a thing I must win. I know I should stop, most times I'm sorry as soon as the words come out of my mouth, but then it's too late.

Then there's the flipside. The part that shuts up, says not a word and refuses to talk about things good or bad, just cold.  The door slammed upon the rest of the world. Right now the world is closing in, and I'm boarding up the doors.



:peace:
`lns.

10,000 views. It's right around the corner, and frankly I'm amazed. So for all of those who watch me, for all of those who support me I wish to say thank you, without your help and encouragement I would'nt be the artist I am today.

So to celebrate, the person that can send me a screencap of view 10,000 wins a prize.  As I'm broke it's going to have to be art,  perhaps a photomanip, a personalized avatar, or id.  Post me the image in my mail box and we'll talk about it.

I also have to thank :iconoibyrdsdds: for she recently selected me as one of her top fifty artists of 2006. Thank you darlin, your constant support has always put a smile on my face.

SuicideStick me now
It's time to die
No questions asked
No reasons why
Stick me til that needles dry
It's time to go
I've fallen
Stick me now
It's time to leave
I've no belief
I've no reprieve
Stick me now
It's tim to grieve
It's time to go
I've fallen
Stick me now
It's time to part
No love left in this shattered heart
Stick me now it's torn apart
It's time to go
I've fallen
Stick me now
It's time to go
The curtain draws
To start the show
A solid void
A sullen glow
It's time to go
I've fallen
Stick me now
It's it's time to fall
I'll stick myself
I've got the gall
But frankly YOU DON'T HAVE THE BALLS....
I've stuck mtself
I've fallen
Torrid LoverI'll come to you my pretty whore
You've nothing left
You've nothing more
A thousand cuts
A dozen score
You've left me once
But nothing more
You come to me you sacred sin
I've nothing left
It dwells within
The blood that boils
I draw back skin
The pain it thrills
It draws me in
We come to us pathetic pair
We moan the pleasure
Call on despair
Summon such sins
Angelic flair
You've loved me here
I've left you there


Someone has returned. Once we held each other close, but as time went by we couldn't seem to communicate. For those pains, and for the rage, I wish I had the ability to take them all away. I know I can't, and I know time will never reset. But there is one thing Wolf, that I wish you to know. For that time you gave me, for the chiding you did, and for the nudge constantly to come here I will always give thanks. We might not have gotten along at times, hell we damn near killed each other in others, but you are part of the artist's side of my soul. For those of you that read this, go over to his page, check out his words and images. They will linger in your mind, as they have often done mine.</b>

"Boy and Platypus"
</acronym>

There are days when the world reaches out and just smashes you into tiny little bits. Frequently. But there are also those times where it seems laughter and good friends give you strength to face the next onslaught. I don't have a rant today, but I do have a story to show you. It came about as many of mine often do from a challenge in an irc server. I am posting it here to give thanks for those I hold dear there, and to tell them all that for all the bad days, there are those that I cherish because of them.</b>

[13:27] * Samuel_C nibbles on the ladee till she tells a story.
[13:27] <ladynightseduction> You guys have to think up the things in it.
[13:27] * libby rubs her eyes
[13:27] <libby> I need to make a list.
[13:28] <libby> A rubber ducky, ladynightseduction
[13:28] <Samuel_C> umm... it should containt... weretigers.
[13:28] <^Angelic^Succubus^> a box of Lucky Charms
[13:28] <Erratic> and gummies!
[13:28] <libby> No, a ruber ducky, duckbill platypus, three pieces of bright pink string, and a dyslexic with Turet's.
[13:29] * libby nods
[13:29] <CSwanderin`> The dyslexic has turrets?
[13:29] <CSwanderin`> Like a castle?
[13:29] <libby> Like the syndrome.
[13:29] * libby sticks out her tongue
[13:29] <ladynightseduction> lmao
[13:29] * libby starts making her book list.
[13:29] <ladynightseduction> Good gods.
[13:29] <libby> Oh my goodness, leatherbound Shakespeare.
[13:30] <ladynightseduction> I told you!
[13:31] <libby> Poe!
[13:31] <libby> I don't own Dickens either.
[13:31] <libby> I don't know what to do!
[13:31] * libby panics
[13:32] *ladynightseduction begins: Once upon a time in the land of the fire giants there lived a young boy. He wasn't like most young boys, well who could be with fire giants and all. Still he perservered and tried to survive, but he was having a hard time this morning. First there was bath time, and lets just say his next door neighbor turned all his water into steam and melted his rubber duckie.
[13:32] * Samuel_C curls up once more and perks his ears to the story.
[13:34] *ladynightseduction continues: This wouldn't have been so bad really, except it was the absolute LAST rubber duckie in the Kingdom. How did he know this? Well because he'd had to replace them frequently, not a week went by without loosing at least one and sometimes two!
[13:34] <Samuel_C> eep! those poor rubber duckies.
[13:34] * Samuel_C waves to Cherish. "The ladee is telling a story."
[13:35] * libby hands the poor boy her pirate rubber ducky set of 4.
[13:35] * Cherish waves back wildly.
[13:35] * Cherish licks libby.
[13:36] * libby licks Cherish
[13:36] *ladynightseduction continues: So he was in a rather foul mood, and when he was in such a mood all the speech therapy he'd undergone went right out the window. Literally out the window, screaming a dozen curses to the sleeping fire giant next door. Of course, he got them rather mixed up and they came out of his mouth in not quite the way his brain heard them.
[13:36] <ladynightseduction> lolol
[13:37] * libby giggles
[13:39] *ladynightseduction continues: The fire giant paid no mind to this, not only was he sleeping, he regularly ignored the young boy who never did much of interest, at least to him. But this stream of mangled curses totally dumbfounded the Platypus which just happened to be walking past. Yes I know duckbill platypi don't belong in the land of Fire Giants, but really, neither did the young boy and god always has the last laugh.
[13:40] * libby giggles
[13:41] *ladynightseduction continues: The Platypus stopped dead in his tracks, bill opened and his ears smoking. Well that last bit might have been the fire giant too, I'm not really sure. At anyrate he couldn't believe his ears. "....What!"
[13:41] * Samuel_C hides behind libby from the duckbill.
[13:41] <Cherish> lol
[13:43] *ladynightseduction continues: The Boy's string of words stopped. His train of thought was abruptly derailed. Even the engineer that controlled the fuel for the stacks ground to a halt. He peeked out the bathroom window and looked down. Noone had actually spoken directly to him before. "....Who's there?"
[13:44] *ladynightseduction continues: Not to be outdone the Platypus spoke right back, though like the boy noone in this land had ever spoken to him, either. "...Me! I'm here!"
[13:46] *ladynightseduction continues: The Boy craned his body all the way over on the windowsill. So far in fact he was in danger of tumbling out the window and would have fallen but for the strength of three pieces of pink string. You see string especially pink string has remarkable powers in the land of Fire Giants, and braided together it can perform miracles. In actuality those pieces of string held together the whole house, the Boy and the Platypus all at once.
[13:48] <Samuel_C> ooo the power of pink string.
[13:49] *ladynightseduction continues: So there we are, perched on the windowsill with the Boy and the Playtpus. You know there's not much conversation to be had among those with such diverse backgrounds. But! Loneliness is sometimes the impetus for change. The young boy, being a boy, and more interested in a playmate than anything else invited the Playtpus in for breakfast.
[13:52] *ladynightseduction continues: The Platypus agreed, I mean who wouldn't really? Especially in a land that would otherwise probably cook him to a cinder. Actually I think that's why playtpi are extinct to this very day, they were burnt to a crisp. But that's in the future, far in the future when the Fire Giants are nothing more than wisps of light and cooking tools.
[13:52] * Erratic laughs, "This is great."
[13:54] <libby> brb
[13:56] *ladynightseduction continues: Boy and Playtpus had quite the breakfast that morning, sharing all the things that first-time friends do. You know the drill; favorite this or that, stories that just couldn't keep to themselves, and of course how they'd planned on destroying the fire giants. Boy and Platypus seemed to have destruction much in common. So, over the breakfast of Lucky Charms and rapidly smoking milk, they hashed out their plan.
[13:56] * ^Angelic^Succubus^ chuckles
[13:59] *ladynightseduction continues: Paper curling at the edges and the tip of the crayon melting didn't stop them. Ohh no! They contrived a plan; so daring, so determined, and so decidely heartstopping it had to be acted on, and quickly. The first part of the their plan was easy, gather all the Fire Giants together in one swoop.
[14:00] * Samuel_C gasps.
[14:00] *ladynightseduction continues: To this end the Playtpus suggested a neighboring country, much harried by flames and the giants. The land of Weretigers. Of course the Tigers were almost as bad as the Fire Giants, what with the teeth and the slashing tails that destroyed houses with just one smack. But, it had to be better than living in a veritable cook pot all the time.
[14:02] <Samuel_C> eep! evil weretigers!
[14:03] *ladynightseduction continues: So, they sent a message to the King of the Tigers. Who had a couple of hours worth of belly laughs at something as silly as this plan seemed to be. He was intrigued though, and after another hour of really thinking about it agreed. The Tigers surrounded the land of Fire Giants, and they brought the most hideous thing of all. Fire Extingushers.
[14:03] <Samuel_C> oh noes!
[14:05] *ladynightseduction continues: Boy and Playtpus, who ended up riding on the back of the second in command of the Weretiger Army, threw out a dozen awful curses mangled still, of course, and cheered the Tigers on. Until finally all the Fire Giants were huddled together trying to keep each other warm and avoid the nasty blasts of the Extingishers at the same time.
[14:09] *ladynightseduction continues: Now, with their mutual enemies corralled and the Tigers with the upper hand, the last part of the plan could be released. All once from out of nowhere a million pink strings came tumbling out of the sky. (You forgot about the strings holding them together didn't you?) Every Fire Giant was tangled up so tightly they couldn't breathe, they couldn't jump, and they couldn't eat oxygen to build their flames, and slowly petered out into the ground. As a matter of fact the Strings were so terrifying to the Giants that the Weretigers turned tail and ran as well.
[14:10] <Samuel_C> those poor giants!
[14:11] <Samuel_C> hiyas MeganLez
[14:11] * MeganLez __ hi Samuel_C
[14:11] *ladynightseduction continues: Boy and Playtpus lived happily every after, tending after the Strings, and threading them around a dozen spools that always seemed to be the color of flames. The moral of this story? Sometimes you need to put up with alot of tangles before you can take a bath.
[14:11] <libby> LOL
[14:11] <Erratic> lmao
[14:11] *ladynightseduction giggles.
[14:12] <Cherish> OMG
[14:12] <Erratic> Boy and Playtpus could actually be a childrens story
[14:12] <Samuel_C> lmao
[14:12] <Samuel_C> that was awesome
[14:13] * Samuel_C gives the ladee a cookie.
[14:13] <ladynightseduction> Whoohoo!
[14:13] <ladynightseduction> cookies!
[14:15] * Samuel_C nibbles on a cookie for himself.
[14:19] * CSwanderin` slips out the door to chase the rest of the day...have fun today, folks - fantastic stories all-around...;chuckle;
[14:22] <Samuel_C> okies, I'm off. see ya around!
[14:22] * Samuel_C blows kisses and waves, then runs out the door.
[14:23] <Cherish> Bye Samuel_C!
[14:24] <ladynightseduction> Thank you darlin

My spotlight for this month is new to DA, but one of my oldest online friends. I've seen her go from a shy "wouldn't say boo to a mouse" woman into a self confidant person. She is an inspiration at least to me, a person not afraid to say: This is who I am, take me like that or don't, but I like me. She epitomizes, self esteem and courage, I'm proud to call her friend, and introduce her art to others. Go on over to her page, tell her I said so and meet one person that knows what she wants in life.

"Warning Labels - Yes or No?"
</acronym>

Recently I read the comment below on a gaming forum.
  
Do role-playing games need warning labels? Other industries have warning labels. Movies have a rating system; music and computer games have labels, so why not role-playing games?

I am thinking of starting a parents group. The purpose of this group will be to lobby to have warning labels put on role-playing games. The role-playing gaming industry has far too long cried "we are grown ups, we can have what we want in our games". True, but these things can and are harmful to others. Does the role-playing community really believe that 'The Book of Erotic Fantasy' will not have a harmful effect on someone, somewhere? Of course adult material has been in role-playing games since the beginning. The succubus, virgins and other impure practices have been implied throughout the game history (note: I said implied). However, this type of material is not right and should not be produced.

Where does the line be drawn? At what point do you say enough is enough? When the publishers of the most popular role-playing game in history put out morally deficit material such as 'Book of Vile Darkness' and that disappointment called Dragon Magazine 300 I say enough is enough (To be fair it was Paizo, but the same). People have asked me why I'm so vehement against these things; the reason is I hold gaming companies to a higher standard (but other forms of entertainment have been corrupted by individuals such as television, movies and the internet, why not gaming?). I felt happy with my hobby in the so-called sterile '90's of the games saga. Now I am filled with just so much disappointment.

With the firing of all the old timers at Wizards all that's left is the young designers (who may be talented) who grew up in an age where they are desensitized to sex, violence and other repugnancies of society. It's true that the majority of gamers are older and feel this type of stuff needs published, I guess. I'm older and have been involved with the game for over 15 years but I won't carry these types of books in my gaming collection. Does some kind of a grading system seem warranted? I think so.

Repugnancies of society? Now I'm a old timer. I played D&D when it was still a tabletop game. Sure we played other games, even other board games and video games, but D&D fired our imginations. We created characters, even whole stories, for our Dungeon Master wrote all worlds for us to play in.  It was inspiration, a creative outlet for a child. That will always be my opinion. Labels stick you in a box, they make a cage around thought. I don't like them. I didn't like them on music, I don't like them on movies or television shows and I most assuradly don't like them on books. It is nothing more than censorship. I find that repugnant.

If you are a decent parent. You instill in your child values you wish them to take into the world. They aren't mindless robots that you program a set of rules into and then turn loose. The are individuals with free thoughts, and free will. Sometimes those thoughts will agree with you, sometimes they won't. Deal with it. Talk to your child and I mean talk to them, not at them. Communication is about listening as well.  I know one thing for a fact. Telling someone they can't have something because a label says so, just encourages them to see why. Everyone on this planet of ours is inately curious. You can't tell me you didn't rip that tag off the pillow just to see what would happen if you did.  Don't believe me? Well lets just go down the list.

This was reposted from a contest every year with the stupidest warning labels. One more recent winner was on a composite fireplace log that said, "Caution: risk of fire."  

1. A label on a bottle of drain cleaner which reads: "If you do not understand, or cannot read, all directions, cautions and warnings, do not use this product."

2. A label on a snow sled for children which warns: "Beware: sled may develop high speed under certain snow conditions."

3. A label on a 12-inch rack for storing compact disks which reads: "Do not use as a ladder."

4. A five-inch brass fishing lure with a three-pronged hook on the end which warns: "Harmful if swallowed."

5. A smoke detector which warns: "Do not use the Silence Feature in emergency situations. It will not extinguish a fire."

Other such gems are as follows:

On a blanket from Taiwan: Not to be used as protection from a tornado. A warning on a pair of shin guards manufactured for bicyclists: Shin pads cannot protect any part of the body they do not cover. Warning on an electric router made for carpenters: This product not intended for use as a dental drill. On a bottle of shampoo for dogs: Caution: The contents of this bottle should not be fed to fish. On a string of Chinese made Christmas lights: For indoor or outdoor use only. On an American Airlines packet of nuts: Instructions - open packet, eat nuts. On a hotel provided shower cap: Fits one head. On Nytol Nighttime Sleep-Aid: Warning: May cause drowsiness. Warning on a cartridge for a laser printer: Do not eat toner. Can of self-defense pepper spray warns: May irritate eyes. Warning on a Conair Pro Style 1600 hair dryer: Do not use in shower. Never use while sleeping. On a baby stroller: Remove child before folding. On a household iron: Never iron clothes while they are being worn. On a fireplace lighter: Do not use near fire, flame or sparks. On a Halloween Batman costume: This cape does not give the wearer the ability to fly.


MATURE AUIDENCE ONLY!!! CAUTION!!! CAUTION!!! CONTENTS HOT!!!  Who can resist that?  The marketing industry is paranoid. Every thing that you might want to purchase is labeled to the hilt. I expect apples to be decorated with little stickers that say:  Beware! If eaten you will be tossed out of the Garden.  

Come on. Are we so defunct as a race that we need these things printed on the products that we buy? Are we so irresponsible? The only thing these label happy products tell me is this: Someone at one time or another tried to do them, or tried to sue a company for their own mistakes. A friend of mine once said, we should do away with every one of these labels, thin the herd. I've got to say I tend to agree.

I don't know when it because commonplace to blame someone else for personal stupidity or irresponsiblity, but it is. Our legal system is filled to the brim with these suits, clogging up actual crimes for years. Lets not forget that said criminal didn't actually murder his neighbor. No of course not, she drove him to it. Yes, by flaunting her nudity; in her own home, behind closed doors.  No, he didn't pick up a gun and shoot her full of holes, it was all her fault. She put the gun in his hand and told him to pull the trigger. Yes, I know it's an extreme example, but you get the idea. Brains people, responsiblity, it's what makes us human. The ability to think beyond instinct, otherwise we might as well lick our own b*lls.

My spotlight for this month is not new. He is one of my first watchers here on DA, but he has recently gone through what you might call a 'sea change'. The first of what he hopes to be many sessions with fetish models. A dream I suppose come to fruition in a way. So I wanted to celebrate with him, share his visions with you. Visit his page, enjoy his work, and say hello. You won't be sorry.



MUAH!!!

Exotic bad-ass
</b>
You scored 85% masculine, 52% athletic, 72% exotic, and 50% refined! You want everything in a man at the same time! Masculine, built like a Greek god, exotic and mysterious and even some bad-ass in there too. I think you would really like Freddy Ljungberg, the Swedish soccer player. He's the guy on the right. But let's face it, the whole point of this was to look at a bunch of hot guys.

"Men Can't Live With 'Em, Illegal To Kill 'Em"
</acronym>

So today's rant, as if you can't tell from the test is men.  Recently I read an article about men, I was just curious at some else's viewpoint, for I am at times a harsh critic. You see I always measured a man by the standards of my father. Not really surprising, I'm almost sure most girls do, not to say there isn't bad fathers, for I've seen plenty. But mine was the type of man or rather person I wanted to emulate. I know that sounds weird, me being a girl. But it's true. I wasn't much for girlish things as a child at any rate, and my father's calm nature and his ability to be good in almost anything he put his mind to seemed to be good traits to the teenage me.  He was the coach of my softball teams, he was my confidant in long walks while we roamed golf courses and he was a voice late at night that offered understanding when my mother and I butted heads.

So, as I grew older I looked for guys that had his traits.  I made some bad choices in my life, a few I regret, but for the most part the men that I continue to call friends are much like my father.  I know your asking why I'm babbling about this, but bare with me for there is a point.  

Back to the article, which I'll repost a few exerpts here:

What makes a man appealling? Is it his dashing good looks? Is it his rock-hard pecs and abs of steel? Or is it his smile and his personality that takes the top plum? In a society where everyone seems aesthetically astute, it's difficult to validate this question for sure. Sexiness is a very subjective matter and is very relative at that. It holds inconsonant views from each individual just as everyone squabbles over tastes in clothes and food. Hence, a universal answer to this blown-up question is an illusion.

1. Masculinity
Being masculine does not merely suggest flaunting a large build or a protective quality but having this natural instinctive masculine self to trigger women's instinctive feelings of attraction. True, what a woman first notices is his anatomical assets but what lingers in her mind is not all that. It's his inherent masculinity. It's in the way he languidly struts across the room with a show of adequacy and grace and the way he flashes the glint in his eyes that ultimately creates the spark. It's also in the manner that he moves and talks.  

I highly agree with the above statements. I'm not much on arrogance or ego, but none of that really applies to a masculinity. Being male isn't about that, it's about enjoying what makes you male.


2. Smile
A natural sweet smile is one of the greatest attraction of a man. It exudes an aura of congeniality and establishes charisma presence. It also breaks a woman's resistance and communicates hidden messages without any verbal language. This is why a man who is generous with his smile is guaranteed to maintain a women-magnet profile!

I'm not sure about the 'breaks resistance' part of this, that just seems more manipulative than good.  But I can't argue the effect of a smile, it does tempt one to smile back.


3. Confidence
Confidence makes a man. There's just something about the appeal of wealth and power that women can't resist. Antithetical to how most people view it, giving off that commanding vibe isn't always dependent on one's bank account. Men can actually take on that aura of authority just by moving through life with an air of self-assurance and a boost of self-esteem.

Okay this I agree on as well. Why I'm not much for weath and power, or rather I don't actively seek it.  I do like men with confidence.


4.. Style
Actually, it's not the clothes that make a man sexy. It's how he carries his apparel with confidence and ease that does. Clothes don't entice women, it's the man that makes those clothes look good in him that wiles them.

Again I have to agree, suit, jeans, hell just a pair of boxer shorts.  It's how they are worn, not what they are.


5. Sense of Humor
Laughter releases chemicals that create a sense of well-being, which is a wonderful turn-on. A man equipped with a good sense of humor automatically wins his points on the sexy scale with women. With the mighty use of his expression and wits combined, he becomes an addiction that women just can't get enough of. Women think that if he can evoke them with laughter in public, chances are he can also make them giggle in bed.

As far as I'm concerned this should be number one. If you can't make me laugh, there's just no chance.


6. Oddity
Extrinsic and intrinsic personal abilities and traits that are considered unique and superior by a woman's biology and also by the society to which she identifies with are, to varying extents, very charming to the female species. If a man has the gift of music or have potential fancy footwork or simply has art at his fingertips, he can charm his way anywhere. A mysterious facade that keeps her intrigued and guessing is also deemed bewitching. But a man's resistance to a woman's seduction is considered the prime. It's effects are naturally ingrained into the "sex" part of a woman's brain that it drives her motors purring all the time.

Okay at first glance I had a huge issue with this one. But on second thought I had to stop and think. Many of my childhood heros had 'odd' traits. Somethng that made them stand out on a bigger scale. Whether is was Olympic athletes, musicians,  writers or Military generals, they had a passion for a certain aspects of their lives. For me, that is a key.  If you go through life with no grand passion, as far as I'm concerned you haven't lived.

So there you have it, six traits I would say is a must for me to be attracted to any male. It's not all that was discussed in the article, but the ones that most spoke to me. Plus one other final comment: What makes a man sexy is everything about him and even more. Whether it be on the surface or skin deep, it's just a matter of projection. Every man is sexy in their own ways. They just have to feel that in themselves.

My newest spotlight lives in one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Had I wings to carry me over the sea I would swoop down and just walk his land. Though I don't know much about the culture, legends and history he was kind enough to offer me his time and effort to answer questions, fill my mail with links to other sights. He's an awesome artist, with just a few strokes of a pen he can capture emotion, life, and soul in an image. So take flight and soar on over to his side of Deviant Art.

"A Helping Hand"
</acronym>

Right, so today's rant isn't so much of a rant as it is a story and part of my theme for this time around, wings.

Once upon a time, in a tiny kingdom by the sea, there lived a young girl. Like most tiny kingdoms there was a ruling family, but she knew none of them. There was a castle atop a hill in almost the exact center of the island, but she had never been inside. There were dozens of squalid houses in town, many clinging to fragile life among the fisheries and docks below, but she didn't live in them. She saw children her own age with no shoes or food, who skittered away when she came to close. No, this young girl was average. She was neither rich nor poor, small or large, black or white. She was grey.

In the middle, in between. Life is often that way, in between. Many people live most of their days in the grey zone. Where the thrill of rapture has blurred into past glories, and the pain of despair has faded into marking time. Grey had parents, siblings and a home to call her own, still she wanted something else. We all do, for who would choose agony over rapture?

Grey stalked along the beach her leathery sandals scuffing at the wet sand. She was basically a loner, she had a few friends, but even these confidants didn't know her deepest desire. You see Grey yearned to have wings. She listened to the birds call to each other in the morning as the sun woke. She spent hours upon hours watching them wheel above her head as the day marched on. She lived inside the shadow of their wings at dusk, and late at night she feel asleep to the hooting of the barn owl.  

I have to tell you now that in Grey's world sometimes wishes came true.

So perhaps it will be no surprise to hear that one morning while the air was still and the world tingled with expectation Grey woke to find herself with wings. Not just any wings mind you, but ones strong enough to carry her into the sky. She broke out of her home in a rush, dozens of the tiny outer feathers bursting all around her body, her -winged- body, in a cloud. She couldn't contain her excitement, the maiden flight took mere seconds to complete, feet hitting the ground almost immediately.  

The problem? Why she didn't know how to fly. She had no instinct to go on, for her people had always been rooted upon the earth. Their mode of transportation feet, wheels, other animals to carry them along. She tried again and again, the morning sun climbed into the sky and all that had been gain was a few minutes flight. She was sore, she was wet with sweat and she was starving.

Grey wasn't about to let such things stop her, and so she ended up -walking- to town looking for food, and perhaps the library. The library would have some answers. Did she run into people along the way? You bet she did, a gaggle of kids followed her in awe of the wings as soon as she made past the farmsteads. But they wondered to, why didn't she fly? As a matter of fact Grey cause quit a stir in town, for even adults stood stock-still their mouths hanging open as she walked by.

That's when she saw them. The Royal Family. The King and Queen, in their carriage. It was carved from abalone, dotted with pearls and moved with all the grace of a floating swan. Everyone knew that they were inseperable, that the Queen before she was crowned had once been a swan. That she had wished her way out of a fisherman's net and he had taken her home. But not just any home, for while he appeared to be but a fisherman, he was not. He was King.

The crowd held it's breath. What would happen? Was the Royal Family truly magic? Surely the meeting of such beings would be splendid, a wonderous tale to tell. But while the crowd's attention had been on the King and Queen, Grey had slipped away. She had disappeared into the mob of people and even her wings could not be found.

A dozen people tried to clamor past her and into the carriage. Be the first to tell the story of a wishing girl, but they were swept aside. The King and Queen would have no interest in one that could not fly. Grey rushed around the nearest corner blindly, her wings hugged tightly to her body and tears running from her eyes. She had plummeted from the heights of glory this morning into the dark cavernous evening. Her head fell into her chest,  the dusty, bedraggled wings shadowing hunched shoulders.

"Hey?"

Grey's head came up even as she stepped deeper into the stairway of the nearest building. She'd paid no attention to where she was going and it rather surprised her to see she was on the far outskirts of town.

"You okay?"

She didn't know him, though he had to be close to her in age. His hair was a bristle all over his head and stained by the sun, bright blue eyes as deep as the sky stared at her. She rubbed at the side of her face, and the span of one wing slid out from the shadows.

"Ohh! It's you!"  His eyes were wide as saucers, staring at the wings. "They are looking all over for you."

"Why."

"Well because, because your magic!"  He was exuburant, excitement spinning out with the words.

Grey turned her head to the side, a flush of embarrasment spread up over her cheeks.  

"I'm not."

He looked confused for a minute and then pointed to the wings.

"Of course you are, didn't you wish to fly?"

At that Grey burst into tears, face buried back in her hands.

"Hey?" His voice was full of worry now, instead of exuburance. "What's wrong?"

"I can't fly." Her words were muffled and soaked in despair.

"What? Of course you can."  

"No, I tried. I didn't wish to fly, just for wings. I made a mistake  I don't know how."  Despair was fading into acceptance, she was only average after all.

He cocked his head at her, a tiny furrow between sunbronzed brows. "But everyone knows how, you just have to reach for the sky."  He grabbed her hand and pulled her out of the shadows. He was full of confidence, sure that at any moment she would be among the clouds.   

"Go on, try."

Grey fanned out her wings, the day was rapidly falling into dusk and sunlight caught the edges of her feathers, turned them into a line of red and gold.  She leapt into the air just as the sun was falling behind the clouds and that was the last time anyone saw her.

Sometimes all you need is a helping hand.

"Cybersex"
</acronym>


Now it's no surprise I spend time in chatrooms. I write with friends, or hang out, or play music on my streaming radio feed for them to listen in. Which recently, I've managed to aquire a few new friends . You see while I own the radio stream, I don't DJ the whole time. There's just no way I could broadcast music 24 hours a day, much as I love the tunes. So while I do spend alot of time there, I'm not always broadcasting. Sometimes I listen to the other DJ's; sometimes I watch the conversations, sometimes I write and sometimes, hell I cyber. Yes it's true. (Waits for the collective gasps to subside)

For those of you not in the know, the term cybersex or computer sex is a virtual sex encounter in which two or more persons connected remotely via a computer network send one another sexually explicit messages describing a sexual experience. It is a form of role-playing in which the participants pretend they are having actual sexual intercourse, by describing their actions and responding to their chat partners in a mostly written form designed to stimulate their own sexual feelings and fantasies. The quality of a cybersex encounter typically depends upon the participants' abilities to evoke a vivid, visceral mental picture in the minds of their partners. Imagination and suspension of disbelief are also critically important. Cybersex can occur either within the context of existing or intimate relationships, e.g. among lovers who are geographically separated, or among individuals who have no prior knowledge of one another and meet in virtual spaces or cyberspaces and may even remain anonymous to one another. In some contexts cybersex is enhanced by the use of webcams to transmit real-time video of the partners.

Thank you FreeDictionary.com.

Cybersex is sometimes colloquially called "cybering". Channels used to initiate cybersex are not necessarily exclusively devoted to that subject, and participants in any Internet chat may suddenly receive a message with any possible variation of the text "Wanna cyber?" Cybersex is seen by some as a humorous, pointless, insignificant and meaningless act that carries no real emotional weight or emotional repercussions. Others believe that the sexual feeling exhibited by participants in virtual intercourse is very real and can be just as emotionally significant as feelings that occur during sexual intercourse. It also can play an important role in long-distance relationships. Cybersex is most commonly performed in Internet chat rooms (such as IRC or web chats) and on instant messaging systems. It is also fairly frequent in on-line role-playing games.

Again thank you FreeDictionary.com

Funny story, my friend :iconpatsubmann: who incidently is my spotlight this time around, recently had such a thing happen to him during an on-line role-playing game. Or rather he was messaged by mistake, asked the girl who messaged him if she had the right person, and when she stammered all upset he went on to explain that such behavior wasn't allowed in the game, and that the game moderator did monitor such things.

Now my chatfriends and I tend to have many of the same feelings about certain situations, kindred souls gathered I suppose. So during a recent broadcast one of them, who goes by the name Gently, went off on a tangent about what he likes and dislikes in the chat/cyberworld. Which got me to thinking and wondering, which lead me to the above descriptions. The dictionary entry also gave a slew of reasons for cybersex to exist, and why it is good or bad. If you'd like to read more go here:

Cybersex</b>
  

So today people I'm curious. What are your thoughts?  For or against? And the reasons why you choose one.

To be fair, as I'm asking you to give me your thoughts I'll give you mine. To me cybersex is not insignificant or meaningless, sometimes it's humorous though, believe you me. You see people can put their best foot forward in the cyberworld. You can choose to be all the things you are not. Smart, funny, attractive, rich. The list is endless. All of us want to be liked, and there's no bad hair days in cyber. Unless you wish them of course. I suppose what I'm getting at here, is this:  there is the real you, and the ideal you. We all would like to be our ideal selves, but it's just not possible in life. We get angry, we get hurt, we have bad days. The main thing I've learned is: While the situations might not be real, the people are. There is another person on the other side, someone you are talking to, and that is never meaningless. Your words, your actions have consequences even on a computer screen.  

I'm going to attach a poll as well I believe, as I'd like you to answer yes or no to whether you've had cybersex. Of course it's horribly rude of me to ask complete strangers that visit my page, so I want to leave that anonymous.

One word of warning. Please do not use this to express any hateful or bigoted comments to anyone that posts. I'd prefer reasonable responses, not  "Well you're stupid for believing anyone is serious." or "How can you do that???" type of answers.

:peace:

11:51 a.m. The Rest of the World

:spotlight-left: :iconkhokolotte: :spotlight-right:





So it's time for this again. And I must admit to a rant which will follow. Mainly about how much the U.S. or the people inside it seem to forget about the rest of the world.

Now this deviant has watched me for awhile she lives in Canada, and for some reason I hadn't been watching her. Which is is a real shame for she has grown in her art by leaps and bounds. She claims to be a pseudo-intellectual on her page, but you know I haven't found that to be so. She's got some wonderful ideas and I have taken inspiration from her comments and support often. Go visit her, and check out my newest addition to my watch list. Or I'll hunt you down and beat you with licorice whips.

MUAH!!!

Right today's theme. The rest of the world. You see I've often watched people turn away from someone different, outside their circle of friends. Hell my high school was proud of their bigotry. To my mind when you place a box like that around your thoughts you don't learn. There's a huge world out there, though it's gotten smaller I suppose with the advent of the internet, cell phones, streaming radio feeds and almost any hook cable technology can come up with.  Still you have people that don't look, don't think, don't see. I find it appalling that many in my country (Which happens to be the United States) have never travelled outside their own state, let alone their own country, for that matter being proud of it. Don't get me wrong I love my country, I truly do but sometimes the people drive me insane. Perhaps it's just me and that old saying. "The grass is always greener on the other side."

You see I've never been outside of the U.S., though I have traveled extensively though it. I would love to visit other places, see other people, wildlife, natural landmarks. I can't imagine anyone else not wanting the same. So maybe that is just my need overlayed on what I see other people do. But I know this, the more I find other people in worlds far away from my own, the more I want to learn. I don't think that's a bad thing.

St Pete Sunset by nowherekid85


I've watched this photographer since almost the first day I signed up for DA. She and I have something in common besides photography, a love of animals. She also works at what I would consider a dream job, for a zoo in the area that she lives in, and beyond that she lives with in shouting distance of the sea. I envy that, and her love of life that shows in the pictures she takes and the emotion she brings to just about anything she does. Visit her page, get to know her. You'll be glad you did.

MUAH!

Right so the topic is hospitals. Which is why I haven't been here, two of them in three weeks. Plus two emergency rooms, various scans, blood draws and at least a dozen iv's. Yes. It's something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. First of all you feel like a specimum in a petri dish with a dozen people all staring at you and poking you and proding you and well you get the idea. I had three different specialists in one hospital, two in another and guess what? They still don't know what is wrong. Do I know why? No. Do they know why? Well they do a bunch of babbling about this and that and in the end the translation is this:  We are stumped.

To give you an example.

Nurse: You have to drink this for an ultrasound in a couple hours.
Me: I have to go to the bathroom.
Nurse: No you can't go they need your bladder full for the scan.
Me: How long will that be?
Nurse: Two hours.
Me: I can't go to the bathroom now, and then drink this stuff?
Nurse(Annoyed expression on her face): No!
Me(Inside voice of course): Bitch!

Two hours later as I'm being wheeled down the corrider to the ultrasound room. Fuck! If they don't let me go to the bathroom the LEAST they could do is not hit the bumps in the hospital hallways quite so fucking hard. I swear I almost took off my own flesh with my nails. But we finally we get there, and I get parked in a little parking spot. Yes that's what it reminded me of, 'cause it was just a little cubby hole down the hall from the ultrasound room. So again I wait and damn all of them for not letting me go to the bathroom. When finally they call me in. They yank my fun little hospital gown that hides nothing up and start the scan.

Tech: I can't see anything. I'm going to have to use the wand.
Me:  Wand?
Tech: Yes the wand, we have to insert it inside so I can get a better picture.
Me: Okay.

Remember now I haven't gone to the bathroom. So she sticks this wand up well...where most females get examined and starts swinging it around. Now I'm not a fan of pelvic exams by any means(not that I think anyone is) and this gel covered wand is really no fun. She looks around and then gets disgusted and looks at me and says:

Tech: I need you to go to the bathroom. I can't see a damn thing with a full bladder.
Me: They told me not to. That you needed it to be full for the scan.
Tech:  What?

Okay by this time I was ready to damn them all. Don't these people communicate? Aren't these kind of tests routine? I'm all about the individual being unique, but fucking hell. So I went to the bathroom, planning ungodly murders on the nurse upstairs. Only to find out later that the ultrasound didn't really confirm anything but the fact that I had excess water. Which I already knew, duh. Medical people, blah.

Ohh, I have something different in my thumnails this time around. 1. They are all mine.  2. They are all updated with what I hope are better images of the original visions I concieved. I've learned a few things of the course of this past year and I wanted to share these new images with you.

Also in the midst of all this I won a contest. Third place, but hell it's the first time I've won anything here, and I've never won for my writing. It was a subject very close to me, and I am stunned that it got such a review and audience. It was held by :iconbip-bebop: and I encourage you to visit her page. In honor of that I'm posting my first three stories I ever submitted anywhere, plus one more that was the wrap up to the triliogy. I've redone the cover art on all of them and basically much happier with their presentation as well. For those you not into erotica, or don't care to read stories that incorporate BDSM or a Master/Slave relationship breeze right on by here, for that's what these next four thumbnails are about. I was new to the lifestyle when I wrote them, at least the first three and they do include sexual topics and situations. The last story I'm extremely proud of and while it doesn't have specifically a sexual situation it does include edgeplay. A part of the BDSM lifestyle, and not one for the faint at heart.






Decision
The stone floor was very cold, and under normal circumstances the girl would have wished to rise from her knees to seek a warmer place. Today was different though; today she was kneeling before the door to her Master's inner sanctum for the first time. She ignored the cold and waited for the door to open.
As time passed the chill seeped inward, and not from just the floor. A coldness rose from the empty room, an aching loneliness that speared her heart and mind. She stilled the small shivers and stayed in the proper position. She counted the stones in the wall. She counted the tiles on the floor. She counted the moments with each beat of her heart. Just as she thought she could stand no more, the lock clanked and the door swung open. Though she could not see her Master, she heard his voice beckon to her.
"Come in girl."
She crawled forward, the motion sinuous and snakelike. She used her hands, her knees and the tips of her toes to propel herself inside the door. It swung shut behind he

I've watched this Anthro Artist for about five months now I think. I've watched her art grow by leaps and bounds as evidence the image above. For the detail, and the overall excellent coloring of the wolf's eye is worth visiting her page. Beyond that she is a truly good friend, and I wouldn't be as willing to give my thoughts and opinions with out her support. Visit her page, or I'll hunt you down and kill you.

MUAH!

So. What to talk about today. I have no fricking clue. Why am I doing this? Well hell who knows, certainly not me I'm just here for the ride! Ohh Indiana, flood, rain rain rain. We actually might just slide off into Chicago and fall over the bank in Lake Michigan by this time next week. Can you slide upstream? It's rained for like four days straight now.  

Okay, for those of you that are familiar with chat rooms and the acronyms used in them, (IE. LOL, BTW, IMO and the like.) maybe you'll understand this next bit. I know, I'm horrible and really with the plethora of countries that are connected to the 'net and many not having English as their native language I shouldn't be so picky. I actually know at least two, one born in Spain, and one born in Sweden, but that's neither here nor there. Every time I see the line  "How r u?" I think: "How hard can it be to type FOUR more mother fucking letters!" Yes, I think in capitalized emphasis. I timed it once, .2 seconds or somesuch depending on your typing speed.

I thought I'd share this, in the style of bash.org (great site, if you've never visited) just because I found it extremely funny this morning.

Artistic.
Wise.
Enthusastic.
Selfless.
Oustanding.
Motivating.
Eclectic.

I can't post a deviation thumnail here of course because there are hundreds. I do mean hundreds. I've watched this account from the beginning, started by my friend Oibyrd, and I thought at the time she was crazy. Now I know she is, but I also know that many unknown artists wouldn't have been thrilled to see their work showcased, without her.

So. Shame on you if you've not at least stopped by her DD's page, shame!

Fire.

Yes, a fire. Water heater is broken, did anyone believe me? No! So flames under the house, and smoke and hours later a new water heater. Hot water kind of a necessity. Still one good thing came out of it. The sneaky mice that have been getting in and tormenting my dog, busted! Hole found.

I really miss my cat today. Not just because of the mice, though I'd have liked to see him go crazy as the hole was found. On the other hand, my dog did inform the 'authorities' about the smoke.

Other than that, well I've got a new photoshop book, a new digital photography book, and perhaps a few new ideas. So, stay tuned folks and I'll see you next week...or...well the next time. Ohh! This journal display is going to be all about pets.


*Disclaimer: I've included some anthro art in this, so before you all attack me for calling them pets, (insert "paws" for rant) I put them here because I like the art, and they can be considered owned, if only as characters.

:thumb26944312:            Arabian foal.. by mschagen1         A Healing HeartMy weary feet carry me, step by step, towards home.  Overhead, the sky is dark with rain-fattened clouds, scudding over the bay to the endless horizon.  The peninsula arm across from me shimmers in the haze of distantly falling rain, but here the air is hot and close, the scent of rain a teasing promise for later; the kind you wish were now.  Now; now I am here, and this is now.  I have to remind myself of that every living day.  Living in the past was so very nearly fatal to me, and back then I didn't have what I have now.  I didn't have you, the light of my life and joy of my days.
Back then I was... nothing.  My world was shattered in some few hours of pain and torment.  Of agonising torture.  Before then I was a simple girl with simple needs.  They were, admittedly, mostly focused around carnal desires, but they were still simple.  I wanted sex, as much of it as I could get

Photography. It's a fascination for many of us, but not everyone can manage to put down on film, or digital images what you see in your head. My friend Seeker, has been doing it since I started watching him, and not only that he's managed to capture things I've seen in my head as well. Check out his page, you won't be sorry.


Unrabbitproof Fence by Sun-Seeker

Right, so been out of commission due to evil computerness. Or something like that. Though to be honest, I truly needed a break and I can't seem to stop playing with my new camera, taking pictures that is not really doing anything with them as of yet.  At anyrate, I am back to hound all those that watch me, and yes Pat that means you.

I will never escape these horrible revealing journal things. zh`on, I'm blaming this all on you. So be prepared for the fall out, MUAH!


(A) First, recommend to me:
1. A movie.
2. An artist.
3. A musical artist, song, or album.

(B) I want everyone who reads this to ask me three questions, no more, no less. Ask me anything you want. No kidding, ANYTHING, I'll give you the absolute honest truth, to the best of my ability.

(C) Then I want you to go to your journal, copy and paste this allowing your friends to ask you anything.

Revealing. It's all about the inside of us this time around in my theme. Emotions, the thumbnails that follow all invoke an emotion at least to me. Happy, sad, angry, joyful, lust, and or love.

:spotlight-left: :iconoibyrd: :spotlight-right:

One day, my photomanipulations will meld together as perfectly as I think this one did. It is seamless, each image flowing into the next. Beautiful.



Time Is Up by oibyrd

I've been gone, holidays and busy and sick. So this is a little late. But I promised my friend oibyrd that I would answer her tag, and I shall do so here, though 'tis been a while since she asked now.

This is your mission should you choose to accept it. Continue reading and learn more about me that you really wanted to know, or skip this part and go on down to the journal theme.

Seven things that scare me:
1. Random huggers and kissers
2. Clowns :omg:
3. Antiseptic smells before I'm fully awake. (Anyone that's woken up in a hospital will understand this one.)
4. Crowded malls :jawdrop:
5. Brittany Spears
6. Not being able to see. It's the only sense I think I would not wish to live without.
7. Elevator music. I've read that it's actually been studied, subliminally used to calm.

Seven things I like the most:
1. A quiet night
2. Wolves
3. Otters
4. Big Cats
5. Ice
6. The changes of the season.
7. The sound of ocean waves. :drool:

Seven important things in my house:
1. Books
2. Music
3. DVD's
4. Electronics of any kind. IE: stereo, dvd player, computer.
5. Waterbed
6. Photographs, of places visited, animals seen.
7. It's a collection, but spans a variety of things, mostly steel influenced. :love:

Seven random facts about me:
1. I hate off white walls
2. I am allergic to horse hair, (I'm so not kidding and it developed as an adult I didn't figure it out until a state fair.)
3. I'm a total daddy's girl  (I have to agree with oibryd on this one)
4. I am addicted to Twizzlers
5. I'm holding a constant battle against dog hair on my couch.
6. I collect rocks  ;)
7. I tell myself every spring I'm going to clean the garage. (It's still got boxes in it from the move three years ago)

Seven things I plan to do before I die:
1. Learn to operate a hot air ballon
2. Drive out west, again. (I took such a trip as a child visiting all the tourist spots I'd love to do it now, with an adult eye.) ;)
3. Visit San Fransciso. (Someone here knows why.)
4. Travel. Ohh yes, again agree here. Alaska, wolves, otters, polar bears :jawdrop:
5. Learn to sail
6. Build a real library, and in that I mean with a room made just for bookshelves, and a place to read and relax.
7. Own a ' 63 split window ' vette.

Seven things that I dislike:
1. Loud obnoxious children. (No I hate their parents, lazy sots)
2. Repetive TV commericals
3. Dull steak knives
4. People abusive to animals
5. Litter bugs. (I owe this one to my nephew who once during a softball game I was playing at, asked the consession stand for a trash bag. When they enquired as to why he needed it, he said and I quote: "I'm going to pick up the trash." He did. He can also tell you every trash company in town, by their logos.)
6. Movie talkers. (They should be shot, before the film, against the screen.)
7. People that drive thirty miles an hour in the fast lane. (What the hell is up with that? I've got places to go damn it!)

Seven things you say the most:
1. Sasha. (Normally in a tone of amazement)
2. What are you doing? (Again to Sasha)
3. What are you making? To Pat, who does all the cooking here, 'cause like I can burn down kitchens with boiling water.
4. Graih. Again, someone here knows why.
5. Get out!  (Normally to the neighbor kids that seem to think my backyard is a shortcut, maybe if I start staking their heads on pikes they'll get the idea.)
6. Hello?  (Just based on the fact phone and door, hell even, online would make this repeated.)
7. Fuck. (Seriously it's the greatest word.)

BTW Some seven facts, just because:

1. The maximum amount of times that you can fold a sheet of paper in half
2. The largest number of sticks (or other cylindrical objects) that can be tied into a bundle such that the shape of the bundle remains fixed. This may have led to the number being viewed with mystical significance by ancient man.
3. The number of openings into the human head.
4. The number of the ages of man into which William Shakespeare divided a lifetime
5. In Galician folklore, the seventh son will be a werewolf. In other folklores, after six daughters, the seventh child is to be a son and a werewolf. In other European folklores, the seventh son of a seventh son will be a vampire.
6. When rolling two standard six-sided dice, you are statistically more likely to roll a seven than any other number
7. The number of times Cain will be avenged upon for the murder of his brother Abel.


This journal entry will self destruct in thirty seconds..........BOOM!

I've decided it being the 'New' Year, I'm going to showcase 'New' animals, so enjoy them in all their little infant glory. Perhaps we'll start the year with a smile.

:thumb16777601:

Okay. So I went to court. Not a fun place just as an aside. But I have no more debt. I walked in owing thousands of dollars and walked out free and clear. You could say I was walking on water. LOL  A miracle has occured.  To celebrate these are the Water images, and the last of my elemental displays. Water I saved for the end, it is my favorite of the elements, being a Cancer and a water baby born and raised. I'm not quite so far behind on the deviations I am getting through them. (I think)

Water is often associated with emotions, art, time and especially healing and philosophy. It has the depth of a philosopher's soul and is the inspiration of the artist. As with the others, not all of these feature the element of water specifically, they do feel flowing, or ever changing to me. My homage to water, artists, and the west corner.

Okay. Court today. Yehaw. Unpaid medical bills are a bitch. I have a ton of deviations and mails to go through again, so be patient please I am getting to them. This is the Earth element display for the week and here they are.  Earth, the most stable element of all. While this one isn't as striking as Fire or Air, it does play a part in the whole cycle. For without the roots of the world, we could not exist.

As with the other two, not all of these feature the element of earth specifically, they do feel earthy, or strengthing to me.  My homage to earth, and the north corner.

Okay. I'm exhausted and sick. I have a ton of deviations and mails to go through, so bear wiith me. I'm will get back to them by Tuesday, for today is marked for the Zoo. Hopefully the crowds will be nil, and I can get some decent shots. I promised the Fire element display on the journal thumbnails this week and here they are in all their fiery glory.  

As with air, not all of these feature fire specifically, they do feel fiery, or bright to me.  My homage to the second element, and the south corner.

Okay. I'm just starting to have fun with this, and my first thought is elements. So for the next four weeks, on monday I'm going to post images of elements. WIth the wind howling outside my window this morning, I'm going for Air.

While not all of these feature Air specifically, they do feel airy, or light to me.  My homage to the first element, and the East corner.  Quite appropriate I think for Elemental Air represents mental, new beginnings, the start of things to come.

Okay. I received a subscription service from a wonderful friend :iconoibyrd:

:O_o: :handshake:

She won a contest a few days ago, and passed this on to me. I wish to thank her here, and for her support in the time that I have known her.

She also gave me some wonderful information on how to post thumbnails on my journal page. Which I'm going to borrow that trick as well, and show you a few of my friends, and those that I think deserve a second look.

Hang in here with me people I'm still figuring out this subscription thing, so it anyone has an helps, tips, tricks they'd like to pass on I would be eternally gratefully.


On with the show.
