I am intrigued.  :) Is there a specific deadline for the contest(s)?  Or have I misinterpreted the entire thread and the deadline's actually tomorrow?

Feels kinda pointless since I don't actually do stuff at Gaia, so I'm putting it here.

who cares if your not rich. i think your gift is the best i could ask for. maybe i could finally see my character instead of just seeing him in my mind (as scary a place as it is  :)).

He stood tall on top of the mountain of his ancestors and looked down to see his home. He let loose a loud howl. He is now a man, but not just a man. He is now a true Wolf and others are sure to follow him.

Donations have been cancelled!  According to mails I have received they're holding people back from posting, so you dont need to send anything to anyone anymore.


Just post anything you want for the competition, and good luck.

The gift from me still standing.  Good luck everyone

Well, I'd still be happy to chip in, as soon as I figure out what to draw!  I'm planning on posting something but I'm not sure what at the moment...
There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning....
And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave....
So now, less than five years later, you can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark - that place where the wave finally broke and rolled back.

That's great Chris and fellranger. If you still want to donate something, be my guest.  The main problem here is how to send the money to Graham, which sometimes ends up being more expensive than the donation itself if is not through paypal or any other internet transfer.  A lot of countries don't even have the chance to transfer funds from their credit cards to paypal.

So, if you're still willing to pitch something in, you know the way, and in your case Chris.  Its just a couple of steps away.  ;D

Hmm, are you sure about that? I thought all credit cards worked internationally.

Is not about internationality or not, is more of a paypal rule or something. Imagine that!  ::)  Paypal will only accept funds from American credit cards and nothing else.  I tried it myself and couldn't do anything.

The only reason that I have funds in my paypal acount, is because, thats where I get paid for comissions I do to people in the U.S..

Find Me, A poem by Chris Dominowski.

If I am lost, and you do not care, will the search ever be fair?
Why am I here? What should I do?
The answer to this, I once knew.
Why should I be found if I always must hide?
I have tried so hard, my soul has died.
Over the years, In fear I have drowned. It is finally clear; I cannot be found.

Human, a poem by Chris dominowski

I wear sunglasses at night, but I carry a flashlight.
I turn from the flame, but stare at the ashes.
I walk into the woods, and never touch the trail.
I always look at my calander, but do not care what day it is.
I am the mixture of light and darkness; I am human.

Actually, there's TEN days left, but I'm extending the deadline a little bit more due to the circumstances.  The deadline now is July 20th.   I only hope we'll get more entries by that time.   

I know the writing new will get more entries, but people, how about the artistic ones?  We are not going to let them beat us, aren't we?  ;D
