AwarenessDear deviantArt community,
Every day we are confronted with negative and partly barbarous news, some would say those news are fed to us actually. The effect: emotional blunting, brutalization and disinterest.
Be honest with yourself and have a look inside yourself. Who cares about the animal at the other side of the globe, which is nearly extinguished because we cut or eliminate his natural habitat? What do we do on a daily basis against child abuse, for human rights, the environment or animal protection?
There were and there will be incidences, which may touch our hearts or will touch them on different levels. Sometimes we may close ourselves or shy away because if you would have a closer look you would simply go crazy; others may touch us barely, because they are far away or may not affect us, or not directly.

UPDATED: 55 Ways to be Positive!Building on Our Community's Strengths
The focus of the photomanipulation community needs to remain on art, but there should also be emphasis on connections between artists. Building a positive atmosphere where artists feel supported and accepted is conducive to the production of great art.
I believe the secret to fostering community spirit, continuing to learn our trade, and improving our own art lies in being supportive of one another.

Give them your support peeps.
It is about time for a new feature! Oh, I miss the News Articles! Once more, does any of you know how I could publish a News Article without eliminating the present journal on my profile page?
Again, this journal is consecrated to people who have kindly featured one or more of my photos or have helped me in a way or another. Due to the lack of space (60 KB), I cannot include everybody. Nevertheless nobody will be forgotten.

positives Bewusstsein......diese Aktion ist all den helfenden Händen gewidmet.
Sie leisten täglich großartiges und werden doch immer wieder von den Medien missachtet und übergangen.
Vielen Dank für all die bisherigen netten Rückmeldungen.
Mein letztes Journal hat noch eine Frage offen gelassen, die ich hier gern beantworten möchte. Erstmal nur in deutsch, da meine Englischkenntnisse für einen derartigen Text nicht ausreichen. Eine englische Übersetzung folgt in Kürze durch :iconFeliDae84:
Sie hatte auch mein letztes Journal netter Weise übersetzt. :heart:
