With Love for Those Who Suffer













:heart::iconallmyloveplz::heart:
Depression, anxiety and panic attacks are NOT a sign of weakness. They are signs of having tried to remain strong for too long. Share the support. Let those who struggle know they’re not alone…

Angels And Gangstas Group Monthly Award by MayEbony
Thank you to all of the very sweet Angels and Gangstas, and particularly to :iconmypeanutgallery: for presenting me with the monthly :iconangels-and-gangstas: Award in June 2014 . I guess it was for starting up the group for all of the dear 'Angels Without Wings' and 'Gangstas of Love' and getting everything off the ground.

Heartist by Nameda
My goodness, I've today (17th Jun '14) been awarded with a deviantHEART from :icondeviantheart: Thank you so very much dear Denise :iconsserenita: and all at deviantHEART: that means so much to me!
The text they so kindly wrote reads...
May is one of those wonderful people that you don't get to meet very often in life. She is a shining example of a caring and loving deviant, and her entire page is a tribute to the community she loves. She is constantly showing her gratitude through special projects and features bringing stand-out deviants into the spotlight. Most prominently, May is a representative for The Angels Without Wings program, as well as a recipient of the award herself!

May is beloved by so many people and is just a shining ray of light spreading love and joy wherever she goes! She is proud of her beautiful family and her gallery is a testament to her love for life. She is truly someone that we all look up to and aspire to be. It is with great pleasure that I bestow the honor of Featured Heartist on MayEbony!

:iconsesam-is-open: Beautiful Couples In Life And In Art - Part SevenIn a time when nothing is more certain than change, the attachment of two people to one another has become a rare thing, but just this increases its beauty.
All of us want to love and to be loved, but this is not easy at all!:icontruesmiles:
Love doesn't means only "I Love You", love means commitment and respect, a strong shoulder who can support your head at any moment, a warm heart who can  receive your joys, an energetic hand which can relieve all pain and depression, a mysterious smile during a dance, which always conjures the First Dance, but above all, love is the only feeling  that shines over time when our hair is white and our wrinkles talk about memories.
This is love and life, this is what all of us dream to have and to share this is what we have to respect and cherish.
I had the chance to meet some beautiful couples in our  dA community and I have the pleasure to dedicate a series of journals to them.
I want to do this because I want to let them know how

:icontoni-r: Interview with MayEbonyMayEbony
:bulletgreen: How did you got into photography? :bulletgreen:
My grandfather belonged to a camera club and asked me to go along as the model for his group one month.  The experience fascinated me.  This was in the days when film was the only choice and they had to wait until they’d finished the roll to see their results.  I was 13.
:bulletgreen: Which piece from your gallery are you most proud of, and why? :bulletgreen:
I still love Wave Spilling Over Rocks   I’d had my DSLR 6 months by then and was finally starting to understand its functions so this is one of my earliest pieces that I’d had to learn a great deal in order to take.  I’d really worked hard to earn this shot.  Plus I love how much there is to look at in the shot as well as the basic colours.
:bulletgreen: Have you ever achieved any awards for your photography? :bul

:iconinspirationstation1: Our Member Feature ~ May Ebony!Hi Everyone, we would like to introduce you to May, our second featured member!  Thank you Blue for a wonderful interview with May!
Here is just a small sample of May's amazing gallery of beautiful photo's:
         
         
Blue asked May: How long have you been an artist and do you remember what it was that lead you down this path in life, to be an artist?
I think I’ve had a love of beauty my whole life, but as far as creating art – that probably started when I got my first camera for my 11th birthday.  That was long, long ago in 1967 and my father bought me films that I could take only 12 pictures with, and a flash cube that gave you 4 flashes before you had to buy a new cube :iconteheplz:  My beautiful and beloved Grandfather was a good photographer and oil painter so I loved photography becaus

Hello dear Friends,

Last year (in a far more timely manner, in January!) I made a Feature Journal for all of the deviation gifts that had been so kindly gifted to me in the prior year.  So here I am at last - featuring these beautiful deviations, gifted by such treasured hearts and friends.  Thank you, one and all, as I move these deviations from my profile page to this journal so that I can easily access them again in the future - and to share their beauty with all who pass this way.

Here are the gifts that were for my birthday in July...

Life is full for me right now.  I've had a few recent turmoils, but am now feeling positive for the future and, as always have enough things that I want to achieve to fill 3 lifetimes :iconmeizfastplz:  I'm happy this way.  I'm always eager to enjoy the next hobby, the next burst of learning and research, and of course, time with my beautiful family.

I hope to be able to talk more soon, with reduced responsibilities both here and in real life.
