A FEW WORDSIt is that time of the year again when I have to choose the winners. My love, Alligatorr, stands right next to me as usual, to help me get through hard moments like these, when the memories and the pain and even the regret become too overwhelming. I cried my eyes out reading and viewing all of your entries. I relate to so many of them. My longing has no limits ... it's ageless and this is what I saw in your creations as well. Each one represents a personal tragedy and I cherish the courage you guys needed to express your feelings and pour your hearts out like that. ( sigh ) The ones who watched me for some time know that I can't stick to my plans when it comes to giving prizes , especially when it comes to this Contest. So, I will give points to all of you, but not randomly. We will have 6 consecutive places ( with their corresponding points ) and 30 points for each and everyone of you who didn't get to the first 6 places. There were 3 prizes initially, so you can see how far I walked from the path here, but it's worthed. You deserve it! As I said before to a fellow deviant, there are no winners or losers here, in the true meaning! You are all winners for remembering the ones you loved and lost. This is such a small tribute ... I wish I could have done more, or give you bigger prizes. But I hope that these points will be received with joy nevertheless. Thank you all for everything and see you next year. I won't stop doing this, no matter what. Regardless of how painful it is, I want to keep someone alive in my heart. We can forget their voices, or some of their face features, their touch or their smile, or even their scent can get lost through the senseless time, but they are here ... in our hearts, forever.
P.S. I wish they could see what beautiful people we have become and rejoice in our fulfilment.
I will transfer the points to all of you tomorrow. Thank you for understanding. I am just too tired and emotional right now. I would appreciate if you could find the time to take a look at one of my deviations, made for someone I lost. It is entitled "For all of you, poor souls ..." and you can view it here: [link]
. Any opinions are welcomed.
This is my fairytale ... this is my happily ever after ... I love you, *Alligatorr ( )! ( that and even more ... much more )
