Nature is a cruel mistress. As pioneering filmmaker Werner Herzog once wrote about the dangers of explorers heading off into the wilderness seeking enlightenment:

Collection: Good Luck Charms
The first “lucky charms” may have been items like personal rosaries and crucifixes blessed by priests. Over time, the blessing became less important than the object itself. It seems there are lucky charms endemic to all peoples in all places on Earth, from four-leaf clovers to a rabbit's paw. One such talisman would be the lucky horseshoe, nailed above thresholds with points up – to catch good luck floating by. If you have any coin, button, medallion or other trinket in your pocket when you experience good luck, then voila! – you have a lucky charm as good as any!
Celebrating Deviousness - January 2015
In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
Hi everyone! I'm Jade, better known around DeviantArt as Aeirmid. I chose my username because Aermid (or Airmid) is an Irish goddess of health and healing, and I wanted to pay tribute to her because I have dedicated my life to promoting mental and physical health in others. In fact, I'm just finishing up a PhD program in public health. In March, I will celebrate 10 amazing years on DeviantArt. Although I started my journey as a photographer, I quickly became enthralled with photomanipulation and worked hard to develop some skills. I chose my original name on DA, SanguineVamp, because I loved all sorts of dark and Gothic work. I still do. Still, I had a hard time creating dark art because my attempts at blood and gore always somehow magically evolved
Collection: Twelfth Night
Twelfth Night is the Christian festival marking the end of the Christmas season. In ancient times, it also meant that the world, upside down since Halloween, is finally turned right side up for us to begin our new year. But, more or less importantly, depending on your personal fervor for religion or world literature, it is also the title of a rollicking comedy by William Shakespeare. Written around 1601, it displays Will’s tendency to be a tad ahead of his time, featuring as it does a Countess falling in love with another young woman (albeit disguised as a boy) long before same–sex marriage coming into vogue.

About Project Porkchop
The DeviantArt Experience can sometimes quickly become the quintessential example of that most frustrating problem: too much of a good thing. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to peruse the thousands of submissions and postings of artistic innovation, creativity and sheer beauty that are generated everyday.
So thank you for ProjectPorkchop!

Collection: Performing Daily Wondrous Hummingbirds
Performing Daily Wondrous Hummingbirds!
All you need to set the stage is a plastic feeder filled with red–dyed sugar water to bring the endless caravan of performers right to your window or patio. They have a seemingly endless variety of brightly colorful costumes—some with spangles that catch and reflect the sunlight. They are mainly air dancers performing their repertoire of dives and loops and amazing midair maneuvers no other birds can pull off, stopping and starting, hovering like helicopters, flying upside down and backwards. But they can also be comedians and con men, tricking other bigger hummers to get at t
