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

    how to take someone for granted (instructions).i. when the weight of the world is on their shoulders, leave them be.
when the heaviness transfers to you,
expect their sympathy.
ii. goodnight cuddles and kisses add a nice touch
to a relationship; it is far too much
for them to ask you to listen.
too much time is wasted, you see.
iii. yes, when they are curled up crying with their blanket or duvet or whatever instead of you for warmth, you know you're doing well.
they are beginning to tell
that you only want them for your own need.
iv. endless messages flood your phone. inbox. voicemail. letterbox. they want you but you are not there.
you don't care. congratulations - you're not too attached.
v. now it's the time to find someone new
to bend-over-backwards and jump through hoops for you.
she has gone crawling to someone else for support and is trying to forget your existence.
and just how do you feel about that?

A Little Big WisdomRead it slowly.
Chapter 1
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost... I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.
Chapter 2
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn't my fault.
It still takes me a long time to get out.
Chapter 3
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in. It's a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault. I get out immediately.
Chapter 4
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.
Chapter 5
I walk down another street.

    Tutorial - Understand And Resolve Social IssuesToday I want to share one of my deepest insights into human behavior that I always try to keep in mind.
If you learn the 2 rules described and explained below, if you absolutely live and breathe them, you will wield immense social power. You will be able to understand and solve a lot of social issues - including a great many of the threads on the "help with life" forum here on dA. It's because all of these issues are just different manifestations of these 2 fundamental rules. I encourage you to actually learn them or even print them out.
------------------------------------------------
The 2 Rules
Rule 1: "If someone is angry, they are actually hurt. If someone is hurt, they are actually feeling a loss."
Comment 1: Generally, loss means that an expectation of someone has not been met. To resolve someone's anger and feeling of hurt, you must understand their loss and address it.
Rule 2: "Whatever any human has ever said to another human is at its base either one of
