I hurt for myself
Every time i look in the mirror and see how much I hate the me that remains
I hurt for myself
every time I look back and see the  times I reached out  and  had my hands broken for the effort
I hurt for myself
every time I  see  the ones I let in and  the ragged mess they left behind on departure
I hurt for myself
with every effort I made  to make things better and  fell short of the mark whether it was my
fault or not
The yawning chasm  that only grows wider
the cliff that only grows higher
I stretch and I climb and I  move towards the light
so painful,
so heavy,
my every thing hurts so bad  when I look at the lights around me  from the darkness inside
so tired
I want to close my eyes and see nothing more
feel nothing more
worst of all I can't seem to
never ending pain
I've been shattering so long  I wonder if there is time to pick up the pieces
or if I even want to anymore
I don't want to

The Leaf that loved the Southe
The Leaf that loved the Southern Wind
written by
Rosewarrior17 aka rosewarrior
Created in response to listening to Rajaton's  "Dobbins Flowery Vale" and Mikki Miles'  "Windchild"
                                            Long ago, in a great forest, there lived a little leaf on a great tree..  She was nothing but a bud on a branch when she felt his first touch.  Soft and warm, he brought exotic scents and  merry sounds with him.  She unfurled to find the Southern Wind waiting near  with a smile.  Her first shy hello  met with an ever wider smile as he circled  around her with a bright, inviting gaze. He would leave of course, winds had much to do.  There was laundry to dry,  pollen to spread,  scents and seeds to carry and the occasional storm came along for the ride.   Every time he came he brought the war

Made with pride by the DeviantArt community BROWSE ALL ART

So I moved this summmer.  Yay for me!  I am back in sunny Hawaii  where I call home.  Living here is hard sometimes.  I admit I am struggling to survive for the moment.  BUT...damn I am actually happy and learning that not having a lot can be good sometimes. It opens up  other creative avenues.   Like everyone else, I want a lot from my life .  For my hobbies I want a lot too.   I am still fortunate to have all my dolls.  I doubt I will ever sell any.  I actually have plans to continue building my cast and writing their stories.  What I want to do now that I started  my life over so to get  a few more things going with my  chosen art forms. So here are my goals and the reasons for them.

~ Gift myself with a DSLR camera -  I am not the greatest photographer and my artistic eye is  sort of limited, but.....I used to take some cool shots with an slr camera  long time ago.  I love my  current digital but I miss the  manual control.

~Take  better pics of my dolls for photostories - look up lightboxes and  different tutorials for  background scenes.  I tend to  make a  small corner or more,in the house,  the location(s) of offices bedrooms etc. Result is  dolls all over the house.

~Learn to make  more of the props I want for my dolls - I love the idea of polymer clay foods.  Most I have found however, are  much too small to be considered scale for my  larger dolls ( my Hounds and such sizes.) I found some great tutorials here  in Deviant and that sparked a serious wish to attempt  the art.  I will post my attempts here when I am  proudest of the result.  Not a perfectionist but darn close.

~ Post a tutorial or more on making certain props/furniture/clothes - A lot of my  props/clothing collected over the years are in storage until I can afford to ship them from the mainland.  In the meantime I need some and I found that using everyday materials is a great way to recycle and inexpensively create at the same time. I think it would be good for  some of the younger bjd owners with limited  resources.

~Start showing off my sewing - I don't always buy clothes for my dolls.  It has to be something  that I  doubt my skills in making for me to buy it or  so absolutely  wonderful and right for the doll I am thinking of.  Again I would like to show ways to create something wonderful inexpensively and still quality.  

Well those are a few of my goals
