It's minutes before midnite my time.. The Moon entered Virgo 6 hours ago. (btw.. Yes.. I'm a Virgo)
Last month.. While the Moon was between, and so close to both, Jupiter and Uranus.. I submitted an application to dA to start a new group.
A few hours later.. Pretty damn close to the exact moment when Mercury, Mars, and Pluto conjoined on the 4° 41' of the sign Capricorn.. I got a message back from dA saying my request had been approved!
So.. I set out to take a wish.. a thought.. And turn it into a physical thing.
May I say I name this process "Art"?
And as for my wish?
I wanted a group here on dA unlike the other group to which I belong!
First.. I wanted the group to have bazillion different galleries.. Each would have it's own flavor.. Each gallery would be easily accessible from the home page of the group.. Each gallery would have a few item from many different artists.. Each gallery would give me a feeling like I just stepped into a real life art gallery in some romantic locations.. Like.. The French Quarter in New Orleans.. Or somewhere near the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
One more thing.. MOST IMPORTANT thing!!! I wanted the items on display in these galleries to be of the sort that.. You know.. For that split hair second moment.. When I look at the deviation on display.. I feel energy ignite in all 7 of my Chakras [link]
I was not interested in displaying those deviations that only ignited my first Chakra (This Chakra is located somehow in and around the area of our bodies which.. Physically.. We think of/refer to as our.. "arse").. I wanted the stuff on display to move me way beyond my second Chakra (Sexual organ area).. I wanted to feature stuff that at least gets the fourth Chakra happening! (heart area).. But what I really hunt to find.. What I really really want to feature..
I wanted to display those deviations that.. You know!.. For but that fleeting moment.. I feel energy shooting from my seventh Chakra above my head (In our current level of evolution.. We have yet to develop a physical/biological region that associates w/ our seventh Chakra)
With this group which I was dreaming about..
I wanted to say "Thank You" to the dA deviants who have been entertaining me for years!
btw.. In the middle of 2007.. In those days when all I knew about were websites such as MySpace.. Flicker.. PhotoBucket.. Well.. In those days I came across this image..
"Tommy the ballet dancer" by *yuni
Wow! I loved that one! That is the deviation which introduced me to dA.. And I've been having TONS of fun ever since.
And as for the Group..
I asked a zillion deviants if I could display their stuff.. Many said ok!
And I started constructing my dream..
Well.. That Mercury, Mars, and Pluto thing really kicked in!
Not only has this group collected wonderful images and gained very impressive members.. We have hopefully gained the respect of other established groups. To name just one in which I am very happy to have an affiliation..
However.. This weekend.. I now have to do something that's making me sad!
This group has grown so large that I think it's time we should feature ONLY the artwork of our members. Therefore I have to start dumping wonderful stuff which we've collected. (I hope that made sense?.. And that thought makes me wonder if anything I have written up to this bit has made any sense? hehe)
Anyway.. We now have many members.. And we are collecting many deviation.. The artwork of the members of this group is getting "lost in the sauce". So.. It's time for the galleries w/in the HYC group to only showcase our Member's stuff!
With this installment of proceedures.. I have to say goodbye to many deviations which we've collected. And I'm feeling a bit sad over this right now.
Wait a minute.. Wait a minute.. I just had an idea!.. I bet no one would mind if I made one gallery in our group for things we've collected that has came to us from non members!?!?
I'll name this one "All Deviants Featured" [link]
Maybe I could say something like.. I want to thank the deviants who chose not to join this group for their own reasons.. but their deviations which are on display in this gallery made this group a thing!
Is everyone ok with this concept?
And the items I would like to include in this gallery would be..
