Wow! 14 years! DANG I FEEL OLD!
For the past five years, I've seen more art than I though possible: good, bad, humorous, moving, stunning, disgusting, shocking, etc. I've seen people express themselves in more ways than I can list. What I've learned is this...
I am not alone.
Whatever I feel, I'm not the only one to have felt it.
I have a place.
Even if the people in my immediate vicinity don't appreciate it, someone
in the world enjoys my art, my thoughts, me.
There is more love in the world than hate.
For all I read or hear about others being harassed, hated or shamed on the internet, I have only experienced an outpouring of love that has brought tears to my eyes.
And most importantly...
The news from the outside world may be all Doom and Gloom, but here on deviantArt I have friends and I AM LOVED!
