Holiday Card Project 2012More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
The Doctor's SacrificeSo you turned to him and kissedMore Like This
this perfect copy of myself.
I stood there, weeping in my soul
and yet rejoicing for your bliss.
I pray you did not hear the mighty cry
that filled me to the core,
that, with a thousand voices, told you: "Rose,
no man loves you more than I!"
O, how I wish I could have spoken true -
how much I need you by my side.
'The lonely angel' someone once me called,
and yet, the angel is not me, it's you.
In all my life, I never truly lived
until the day that I met you.
You took these hardened hearts of mine
and taught them how to laugh, to love, forgive.
Of all these thoughts I could not speak a word,
it would have made you choose not him - but me.
Though all the stars will sing my love
my mortal ears, it never shall be heard.
You always knew there can be no "Forever"
for us, timelord and an earthen child.
We both know you belong with him
not bound be my life's endless tether.
You have so much to do, to see
that I can never give.
I want for you the best of lives,

What must any of us do before we can understand what we read in the Book of Life? When is one ready to write upon its pages his or her own contributions?
Life is no passive gathering of information. It is not a spectator sport. Only in participation is one truly alive. In order to express feelings or opinions about anything in life, one must have a personal experience of it. Only personal experience conveys the qualification and the right to speak, to write or to create art as explanation and explication of any topic of discussion and debate.
