'Personal' TherianthropyLately, Ive noticed some talk on Werelist about just how much publicity we as a community really want. Some believe it would be wonderful to have therianthropy become well-known, while others would just as soon keep themselves secret.
I can respect either opinion. Its the people who insist that no therian should want to tell anyone about their therianthropy that perplex me. These people tell other therians that therianthropy is a personal thing that shouldnt be shared with anyone, and seem to be convinced that anyone who wants to make their therianthropy public or even semi-public cannot possibly be a serious, true therian.
First of all, these particular therians must not realize that their willingness to participate in Werelist breaks their own rules. In talking about their therianthropy even anonymously they make themselves partially public.
Secondly, if it werent for therians making themselves public, the community would
ResentmentYou say nothing will ever bother you as you casually brush off both haters and passionate preachers with the same thoughtless flick of your wrist. And you claim nothing will ever get to you under your thick hide of apathy. You seem immovable, no untouchable, meditating with your head held high and a smug grin on your carefree lips that never so much as twitch.Resentment6 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
Yet you need not utter a word to get under my skin. I cant stand the sight of you acting so high and mighty, as if worldly affairs do not affect you in the slightest. Your unconcerned attitude shows, perhaps, your inability to care about anything, or anyone, at all. In that respect, I pity you, but it also makes you a waste of space, a faulty investment for humanity.
You have no purpose to your life, so I dont expect you to understand what it means to be determined about a goal; but just for the record, mine is to crack your shell, at any cost, and expose what is inside. Ill put an end to all the a

Society6 opening! :DI'm very happy to announce the opening of my Society6 store! http://society6.com/destinyblueSociety6 opening! :D10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I don't know what happened to society 1 through 5, but 6 is a place where you can get pretty artwork printed on a variety of yummy things for you and your home
There are some really cool products available, especially if you want art on more than the traditional print
Not all of my artwork is, or will be, available through here, it's just a good selection, though please do let me know if you would like to see anything else
Society6 handles all the making, printing, shipping, ~basically everything! I never see or touch the product, they just print my design and I get a cut. So sorry, but I have no control over what phones they print for, or sizes of their pillows, please contact them if you have any questions over your order or product This leaves me more time to get on with drawing! XD
Please head here for my Society6: ht

or the reason I haven't stopped loving you yet.
Because I've never wanted to. Because
dementia runs in the family,
and I will forget everything, even
the sound of my own voice. My children
and their children, warm or disinterested
strangers who speak too loudly and
point to photographs of people
I may have lived with or seen
in a movie once. They'll call me mother,
or Stephanie, say other names
I won't recognise, and none of it
will mean a thing. But if I love you,
if for sixty years I love you,
then I will remember that.
