PenpalsIn an era when "penpal" looks like a misspelling of paypal, I wonder how many of you still write letters and send actual postcards? Am I alone in this business with Anoya, de-la-montagne, and Durochka?I've been a member of postcrossing.com for almost 2 years, sending and getting postcards from random strangers all over the world. But recently I felt like writing more than what a 4x6" card can fit. So I got myself some nice stationary, wrote to the few people I know who still love letters and now I'm waiting to read back from them. I have to admit, it's a little frustrating! I need more people to write to on different days, so that I maybe get one or two letters back every week.So would anyone else be interested? Let me know!Also, please don't share any personal information publicly and please don't send it to me in a note unless you trust me!

This is it!Today was the last day of my term as a Chat & Forums and Architecture Photography Community Volunteer. It's crazy how fast time flew by! Yet I got so used to be part of the team, it feels very strange to leave it. I've worked with a bunch of warm and supporting people! I'm deeply grateful to Moonbeam13 to have given me this opportunity to get involved with the community and try to improve the Architecture Photography gallery, as well as feature some stunning work, and keep the chats & forums safer and cleaner. It has been a great pleasure!Now that this chapter of my dA history has ended, I hope new ones will start, either through fun projects, new friends, or general deviantFUN!To new beginnings!

NEW! Architecture Photography 'Details'Dear deviants,Some time ago I asked the community in this journal entry how you all felt about some changes to the Architecture Photography gallery. A lot of discussions have been led and, ultimately, it has been decided that a Photography > Architecture > Details could be a useful addition!Today we're proud to announce that this sub-category is finally open! So what goes under Architecture details?Photographs of architectural details, close-ups, fragments, or façades that do not fully express neither an interior or an exterior of a building or structure.Examples:

Request of a Cancer VictimNo matter who you are or where you live you have been touched by cancer. Be it through your peers, family members, or your own diagnosis.Cancer leaves an ever growing path of destruction in its wake. The stories are heart wrenching and just as great in amount.Today, I will share with you John44NY's story.John44NY and his wife, Corina, met when they were only fourteen, shortly after her birthday. As it turns out she was only twenty five days his senior. Shortly after meeting, they drove off to another state to be wed; at 14 mind you. When the love birds turned 18 they had a wonderful family wedding. Every year, for the twenty five days after Corina's birthday, John would tell everyone that Corina was the elder in their family.Then, at the young age of thirty nine, Corina passed away of liver cancer. Once she reached Stage 4 (meaning you have a 30-90 day life expectancy and are eligible to be on the transplant list) Corina lived for twenty eight and a half days. By the twen
10 easy ways to relieve depression/stressBecause we all need it sometimes....Here's 10 ways that help me, and could help you with depression/stress.10 things to help with depression/stress::1. Try to take a relaxing walk. (Find a place near you that's calm and peaceful. Parks are always nice, and if you can find one where there's a nice place to sit, do so, and sit there and think of how beautiful nature is.)2. Read a good book. (Books help a person escape reality, and expose them to a different place where anything is possible allowing them to see things differently.)3. Take a warm bath with some candles and relaxing music. (See if you can find a moment to yourself, where the house is empty, and just sit in the bath and breathe deeply, freeing your mind of everything but the calm sounds around you.)4. Scream into a pillow. (I know it seems a bit strange, but doing this can help relieve more than just anger. Screaming is a release, and it can help purge the body of negativity, allowing
