Born to Love Nature - Stamp by druideye Little Green Lizard - Stamp by druideye

Hello my dA friends. Summer is here and I've been SO busy with the end of school, photography, and vacation! I have two more vacations coming up this month, they all have to fit in June because one of my sons was accepted to a special music camp in July, and then school starts again in August. This means I will be slow on EVERYTHING including my groups, so please bear with me.

My photography is going to be in several local magazines this summer, including several covers. I'm really excited, and I'll share the covers once they come out.

I am still working on the AIDS book, so no worries - be on the standby for info on how to order it, but I am a perfectionist and have to check and doublecheck everything before I let it be open to the public. And that takes time.

:new: I am hosting a new photo contest, which you can read about at the bottom of my journal - or check the news article here: news.deviantart.com/article/11…! The theme is "Classic Movie Moments" You can see the submissions on my front page.

NOTE: I have changed the deadline to give you all more time!

Born to Love Nature - Stamp by druideye Little Green Lizard - Stamp by druideye

In honor of National Poetry Month, I've chosen to feature deviations that have the word "Poetry" in their title. There were tons to choose from, I hope you enjoy the ones I've chosen.

On the topic of poetry, check out this poetry group if you like to write poems of various styles and forms.

:iconversebyverse: versebyverse

I am still working on the AIDS book, so no worries. I also have started a new photo contest, which you can read about at the bottom of my journal - or check the news article here: news.deviantart.com/article/11…! The theme is "Classic Movie Moments".

Did you know that April has some interesting dates?

(Today) April 10th is "Encourage a Young Writer" Day
How about find a young writer on dA and give him or her some encouragment today?

April 14th is when the Titanic struck the iceberg - it sunk on April 15th.

April 15th is when the first McDonald's opened.

April 18th is Paul Revere Day - "the British are coming!".

April 20th is National Pineapple Upside Down Cake Day.

April 22nd is EARTH DAY!

April 23rd is William Shakespeare's Birthday.

April 26th is Hug a Friend Day.

April 28th is Poetry Reading Day.

April 30th is National Honesty Day - so I guess we start off the month with lies (April Fool's Day) and end it with telling the truth!

Respect by Tap-Photo-and-Co

And Then Never Again by AeWolf -SoAlone- by ThePianoMansDaughter P l a g u eWhen everyday
is a struggle
from the mind in which
you live within,
hour by hour
breathing gets harder
as your will devours.
Goals begin
to seem out of
reach and the sense
of reality slips away.
The oxygen I breathe
is like a poison to me.
You will never
understand because
as a matter of fact
the depths of this
so called 'depression'
cannot be explained.
It's a plague that lurks about
taking over your mind,
en-scripting self-defeating thoughts
that will exhaust you to your core.
Like a disease
that plagues inside of me
flirting through the
thoughts of death
admiring the fact
of ending all pain.
Penetrating all
that is left
sobriety seeks addiction
in attempt to gain control.
Just to get away
from thoughts that indulge inside
it's a mind game
that never goes away.
No matter the dose
you take
it still finds a way
to infect your daily thoughts.

Walk with a Monster in Disguis by inspirational-dreams Inside the Machine :retouch: by rockrgrl4ever15 Too LateTears fall down your face
Trying to hide all of your disgrace
Rounding a corner to see every fault
Every blemish another blur between the lines
You can't see the difference from love and hate
Never will until it's much too late
If this isn't what you thought your life would be,
What the hell were you thinking?
Destiny was never kind to you,
At least not for long
Honey-colored lies poured from the walls
As tales of betrayal crept all around
It's okay to cover your head,
We both know you don't want to be dead
As age plays its games no one truly sees
Just how bad you can be
Crimson blood writing your story
Do you want this to be your crowning glory?
They'll leave you alone with the thoughts in your head
All of those words left unsaid
The fight for your life is just stating now
Just like everything you went through before
Silent calls through words of unease
Creeping up on you like a disease
Push back the hate,
If only you'd remember it's never too late

Depressed heartache
Depressed heartache
I wish I could've written all my misery down
I wish I could've cried it all away
Teardrops fallin', screaming the pain out of my heart
No one listens to what I had to say nor wanted
Did they have to see what hurt I've seen!
Did they have to hear from what I was running from!
Did they even feel the pain that made me want to hide forever?
Would they have even listened if they did?
Why?
Why wouldn't they listen to me
My pain and sorrow are so unbearable
But they are also so unbelievable!
Why? (screaming)
Why won't they see that I'm crawling deeper into my self?
My heart is bleeding, my soul restless
{Chorus}
Depressed heartache from all the pain in my head
Depressed heartache from all the pain that I cause
Depressed heartache when will it all stop
Depressed heartache when will I start believin'

Have I lost my mind

that I'm gonna fly.
Jumping out of the window,
falling down to heaven.
Falling,
falling,
falling,
flowing
away
with it.
Drifting,
shifting
in shapes
and smoke.
Dancing into the sky
- as if you would fly.
Escape.
Run down the streets
over fields,
into the forest,
into the river,
to drown it in the cold water,
just for a moment,
just for a dream,
then come back,
awake.
Escape
to renew.
The scythe in my hand
the scythe on my arm
above the fire
above the cold veins
and ice cold blood.
Icicles through my heart
ever colder
tears turn solid
silver drops and diamonds,
a mirror lake

Born to Love Nature - Stamp by druideye Little Green Lizard - Stamp by druideye

Spring is in the air and I've been sneezing like a banshee! But I do love to see things bloom again. The cold makes me hurt, and makes me blue.

There is a ghost tour that happens in my town that I've never gone on but always wanted to, and last week I actually was able to go on the walk. It was very late at night due to our guide being late, and it was very spooky! He was a great storyteller (he was an actor, that helped I'm sure). I've put a bunch of the photos along with the stories that go with it on my Facebook photo album so if you aren't my friend on Facebook yet, then feel free to add me and check it out!

So let's see... new things, new things. We got new windows throughout our house, a great thing in honor of Earth Day that's coming up soon. Will save us a ton of energy and $$$. I'm still working with Southern Jewels Modeling Agency, LLC and have a shoot this weekend. I've posted a few photos here and there but not everything I've done as some are being put in magazines around my area and being made into calendars to be sold so they haven't been released to me yet.

Did you know that March has some great holidays?

Today (March 24th) is Chocolate Covered Raisin Day
It's also Harry Houdini's Birthday.

(March 25th) is when PANCAKES were first made!

(March 28th) is Something On A Stick Day, weird huh?

(March 29th) is when Passover begins, also when Coca-Cola was invented.

(March 30th) is when Alaska was purchased.

(March 31st) is Tater Day! Yippee! What would we do without taters? No fries, no tots, no hash browns...hmm.

Oh and I got a new tattoo! It's from a design by WhispersDreams - done by the awesome and talented Teri at Animated Canvas.

The Druid's Eye - Special Edition (Anniversary!)

Born to Love Nature - Stamp by druideye Little Green Lizard - Stamp by druideye

Today is my dA Anniversary, I'm starting six years on deviantART! Congratulations to ME! The first thing that I have done as an anniversary present to myself is to finally LEAVE one of the groups where I was a member. I have been hanging on month after month thinking that it would look like drama if I left, like I was a spoiled sport, but today after yet another decline of one of my photos, I realize that I need to kick it to the curb because it is not helpful or encouraging to me at all, it always makes me feel horrible with every decline I get. I mean, if they'd accept even one or two now and then - ok I'd accept that. I took a good look at their gallery, and after seeing tons of photos in there that are just as good as my work, and in some cases not as good at my work, I realized that the leadership of this club is skewed in some way - EVERY single photo I ever submit is quickly declined without any type of observation or reasoning, I realize that I don't have to subject myself to that kind of treatment, and I free GREAT now! Good riddance! I do not need you to tell me my APN photos are good, because I know my APN photos are just fine and I LOVE them and others LOVE them!

Let's see... what else will I do this anniversary? I will tell each and every one of you, my watchers, that I adore and appreciate you. I love getting favs, and I love getting comments, and I love it when you guys enjoy my work. I also love it when you give me advice on how to make things better. In the five years I've been around here, I feel that I've come a long way. Not only has that come from my own studies to be better, practice, and better equipment but it comes from each of you who've support me through the years.

My very first two watchers...:iconsaija: and :iconsacreddark: March 13, 2004

And one of my first watchers that's still very active today! :icondoubtfuldella: July 22, 2004 was the day she watched me. Here's some of her work, she's exceptional!

Tara and Josiah by Doubtful-Della Gaga's Clowns by Doubtful-Della Daddy's Arm by Doubtful-Della

And this is my last watcher which just watched me a day ago :iconcoolgirl94:!

T H A N K S !!

Also please remember it takes time to produce a book especially when I have a full time job (being a wife and mother) as well as all the other things I have to do, so those who are having work put in the AIDS charity book I am working on it and it will be available soon, probably ready to purchase this Spring!

I'm from South Carolina, but I love to travel. Myrtle Beach and Charleston are a few of my favorite places in SC, as well as the mountains; but I've also visited New York state, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida - as well as Germany, Egypt, Cyprus and Israel. I actually went into the middle pyramid in Egypt!

First I'd like to say sorry for disappearing for more than a month. I had a horrible case of bronchitis that I couldn't shake, and was extremely busy and tired on top of that. Those of you waiting on the AIDS charity book, I have been working on it, but it takes a bit of time to publish something so I will let you know when it is ready for purchase! Promise!

I am sorry to have to report that the cute little turtle Bowser that I've photographed died the other day. We were all very sad about his passing on his energy.

In other news, I'm working on getting up a new contest but not sure what the theme will be yet so keep an eye out for that. I also am going to attempt to do something special on my front page somewhat like a DD.

Hope for Aria - A Small Project that will be Huge for the MacDonald family.

Aria in the Hospital by druideye

A friend of mine introduced me to the struggle of Aria MacDonald, and I wanted to bring it to my friends on dA's attention as well. She is just 3 1/2 years old and has just had a life-saving surgery the other day in Omaha, NE. You can read more about her at aria.org.nz - if anyone wants to donate funds it tells you how on the web site. You can also search for her on youtube and see her family talking about their struggles and also video of Aria herself - be warned though, I was in tears through it all.

From her mother's blog
Aria is three-and-a-half years old from Manurewa, Auckland, New Zealand.  Aria received her gift of life on the 6th of February, a small bowel, kidney, liver and pancreas transplant at the  Nebraska Medical Center, in Omaha, USA.

Soon after birth she was diagnosed with a very rare condition of the bowel known as total intestinal aganglionosis or total Hirschsprung’s disease. There is no cure and it means she will never be able to digest food.


This is the project I'd like to start for her...I am going to send her a Valentine's card today and some postcards next week, and I wondered if any of you might join with me to send her lots of pretty pictures and cards to plaster around her hospital room. She's a little girl and probably likes bright colors and girly things. Photographs, drawings, paintings, prints, ATC's, cards, postcards from where you live - with words of encouragement on them would be wonderful for her and her family. Her mom, dad and little brother Asher are all there in Nebraska with her.

Her favorite color is :bulletpurple: PURPLE - if I find out more of her likes I'll add it on my journal.

Please find her address on my current journal OR note me for the address. I'd also love to know if you are going to participate, I will keep a list and there will be a surprise for you all. So note me or comment to me that you are participating at druideye.

Feel free to tell others about this little project, write about it on your journals, tell your friends and family, anything. I've contacted her mother and hopefully will have more information soon about her particular likes. Her family are from New Zealand and are pretty much on their own in Nebraska and very far from home.

Thanks!
Pamela druideye

Scattered Autumn - Stamp by druideye

:new: Today is the birthday of my oldest son Josiah, he's twelve today. In some cultures, that's nigh about manhood but Josiah is far from being a man - he's still my little 4lb 6oz baby who was born on January 14, 1998. I was in the hospital many times while pregnant, and it was an emergency c-section when he was born. He had no fat on him whatsoever, he looked like a little old man.

I can't believe that he is taller than me now and such a little man wanting to do his own things now. There are some days I wish he was the little bald baby again, but time has a way of moving forward no matter what you might want. His childhood seems so fleeting now, at least I have photos to remember all the times past.

It's 3am and I am not looking forward to bed because last night I coughed all night long, and I mean horrible coughing not just a little cough. I have tried cough syrup, mucinex pills, hot toddies with bourbon, vicks salve all over my chest and throat, ginger tea, hot showers, eating pure honey... hell I can't even remember the other stuff I tried. The cough is so bad that it's making my chest and muscles hurt. :cry: What a baby I am.

Scattered Autumn - Stamp by druideye

:new: My youngest son has given me a bad cold with a wracking cough and it really sucks. I hope to feel better soon, but I don't know. Last year when I got the cold/flu I was in bed for nearly a week. My body doesn't take well to sickness, I don't have a good immune system. I'm supposed to be attending a workshop for using flash in photos tomorrow night, should be good. I'm still way behind in editing my photos from three shoots not to mention my beach trip.

(RANT!) How does it make you feel when you see something you've worked hard on and submitted to a club to come back "declined"? It's very hard not to take it personal isn't it, especially when you go back and look in the group's gallery and see art similar to yours or even worse than yours being accepted. I hope hope hope that the groups system is not going to be a platform for showing favoritism to their friends. I'm starting to see it a little bit, and it makes me quite upset.

Certain people have been set up for whatever reason in leadership positions (maybe because they were friends of the founder) and now they feel like they have the right to condemn others, when their own work isn't any better than everyone else's OR god forbid, the leaders are just kids and they are sitting all high and mighty judging the work of adults, giving them a power trip.

Like I told my fellow camerawhores, we move on and if we find a place that is negative against our art, we find someplace else that's positive and DON'T TAKE IT PERSONALLY! These people aren't "better" than you, it's just their preferences might be different. I know it stings to see "declined", but we have to just keep moving and not let it discourage us. All of you photographers out there are welcome to come to camerawhore, we won't decline your work unless you fail to follow the directions and rules! We understand everyone is at different levels in their art, and give you the opportunity to share your art wherever you are in the craft.


:iconcamera-chic: Check out this new group led by darknessdenied, if you like fashion photography this is the community for you!

:new: I spent the start of the new year at Myrtle Beach having a great time with friends and family. We were on the 11th floor looking out over the beach, but it was sooo cold. I did manage to fit one shoot in with a model from the area. So the big question in my head is what are we going to call this new year? "10" or "Two thousand ten" or how about "twenty-ten"? I vote for "twenty-ten" myself, how about you?

:iconsouthern-deviants: southern-deviants is a new regional group I started for all of us rebels in the southern USA. Anyone is welcome to watch the group if you're interested in the South, but only residents of the traditional southern states can be members as one of our main goals will be to set up devmeets throughout the region. If you know any southern deviants, please let them know about the new group!

SPECIAL LOVE TO :icondannscreations: for the year sub for my birthday/christmas! I know Peggy didn't give it to me so I'd make a big deal out of it but I'm going to anyway! Because it really made my day, it was the first time anyone's given me a sub on dA in all the years I've been here.

NEW CONTEST!! "Winter Stock Photo"
Hosted by druideye

Journal here with updated prizes: druideye.deviantart.com/journa…

I recently took some pictures for a winter theme, and I specifically did some of them that could be used for stock. I want to see what you can come up with using one of these stock photos! Be as creative as you want, it doesn't HAVE to be winter related if you can think of something else the photo might look nice as. If you have any questions, feel free to note me.

Here are the stock photos I took that you can use, all posted at my stock account pamstock:

STOCK - Magic by pamstock STOCK - Globe by pamstock STOCK - Silver Tree by pamstock STOCK - Blowing by pamstock STOCK - Apple by pamstock STOCK - Icicles 2 by pamstock STOCK - Icicles by pamstock STOCK - Snowflake by pamstock
