Final Fantasy XII Haiku: Espers
A/N: This is much less tongue-in-cheek than the last set of haiku I posted.  I actually tried to write honest to goodness serious haiku this time.  Hope you like.  Enjoy!
I die, and am born
I'm the Walker of Life's Wheel
Prisoner of Fate
I am Absolute
Indomnitable in strength
Forever a child
I am the Seraph
Masterpiece of the Scions
Failure of the Gods
I am your treasure
The key to Giruvegan
Is in my four hands
Darkness took my heart
Bound to me, my lovely shield
Come with me to Hell
Man wields Evil's blade
It was I who taught them how
To destroy themselves
Holy Power for order
I spent myself for the War
My reward...the Pit
Hordes, come to me now
I was here to quell your wrath
Join me in hatred
Beauty past measure

Okay. So I'm not gonna say I'm not working as an artist any more. I'm still sculpting, still writing, and still being the artsy-fartsy lass I've always been. I've just found a new paradigm: artsy-fartsy me plus middle-management me. Against my better judgment, I've gone back into retail and found myself managing a small teen-based joint on Long Island. I won't say which one; no free advertising from me, they get enough out of my tired hide. It was either work in retail again, or starve to death while I lived in my car.

See, Andy had to go into the hospital (yet again) for a bypass on the arteries in his leg. He developed necrosis on the incision and nearly lost his leg. This spelled the end of his own career, such as it was, and I had to think fast in regards to how I was going to swing the rent and the bills as a second-rate sculptor. When I realized I wasn't, The only option I had was to go back into middle management. Huzzah, right?  

So having no free time for the past few years, I let a thick layer of dust collect on my deviantArt page. One of my associates got the chance to see my old work, and insisted I should at least sit and get my hands dirty once in a while and not just let talent go to waste. Barring that, I should get back into blogging about art and life and all the good (and bad) things that happen to Andy and I on a daily basis.

Taking her advice, I came to visit this battered old page today after nearly three years of letting it (and my art career) go, and felt a wee bit sad that it's fallen into such disuse. 

So! I think I want to get back into the fun times I had with this account.  Gods above only know it played a small part in helping hang onto my sanity.  So hey, dA. It's nice to see you again.

As always, it's my pleasure.  I've been away from dA for what seems like forever, so it was nice to revisit my favorite artists' haunts and check out their new(ish) work.  Well, new for me, anyways. :D

I'm one of those people who's taken to lurking every day, but only posting rarely.  I'm about to get my gigantic slab of art together soon.  I've dumped out my entire archive for re-organizing and once it's finished, I'm going to make a bunch of sketchdump images and redo the ones I really liked. :3

Fantastic, I can't wait to see the new and redone stuff!  I sorta missed lurking on this site, too.
