Art in the Professions Week - Call for help!News + Happenings
Art in the Professions week is dedicated to bringing education and awareness of the many ways in which art can become a career or play a significant role within a career.

inknalcohol and I won second place in the "Visualize Our Dreams" contest! One of the prizes was a poem written by Christianonfire7 ~ she wrote a beautiful poem that fit the theme of our entries ~ "The Dream of Return Home". Here is what she wrote:
Stainless cloudsWe are all created from Legends,
of long forgotten dreams.

Clouds once captured us in stainless white sheets.
Bays of eternal seas danced graceful
-unremembered- tides against our feet.
Each night we could see the stars -shout-
their names to the galaxy.
Adjacent planets stretched out endless
arms to hug us goodnight.
There was a time when my home planet was-
-perfect and safe. Where our sanctuary rested in-
-peaceful, comforting, holy clouds.
Now, now my planet is a floating dream
lodged in my restless mind.
Where my true home forever sleeps.

Many thanks to Christianonfire7 for writing this :heart:

To Quote Jessie-kad whose amazing picture of American Pharoah as he was winning the Belmont Stakes, the third leg to winning the Triple Crown, received a DD today: "American Pharoah wins the Belmont Stakes, becoming horse racing's elusive 12th Triple Crown winner."

It has been a long dry spell since 
Affirmed won the Triple Crown in 1978. Affirmed, Secretariat and other winners belong to a small and very exclusive club.

Personally, I started to cry when I realized American Pharoah was going to win the Belmont and go down in history as a Triple Crown Winner. A long dry spell indeed.

Moving is upon us. I'll be without Internet Access until reconnected at the new place. Will be able to have limited access on my iPhone, but it isn't easy to do group work on the phone, so there will be a gap in some groups between when deviations are submitted and accepted; the same with join requests. Other groups have active admins, so there shouldn't be an issue. Anyhoo, so long for now and I'll see you on the other side of moving half way across the great state of Ohio!
