In the StormI feel as if I was born in the stormIn the Storm by Amazinadrielle
For therein I gained wisdom of ages past
Enveloped safely in the soft clouds' form
While slowly drifting through dim skies vast
Spreading darkness while making their way
Teaching me to have faith without plain sight
As confused and wrapped in grayness I lay
I learned to appreciate the absent light
The passion of emotion's voice rang clear
As a sudden clap of thunder gave me strength
I'd courage to follow my heart, without fear
Bravery to endure life's fullest length
Then clashes and flashes of lightening's shine
Powered my logic in an electric blast
This invigorated those senses of mine
Awakening me to the world, at last
To my imagination, the wind gave flight
And upon it I soared on an invisible seat
My creativity it soon did ignite
Free to spin and dance on winged feet
Later, cool rains fell upon my bare skin
I felt refreshed to begin my new life
It had cleansed my mind, body and soul within
Chased away my past's shadows and stains of strife

About my diagnoses:
I am a 28 year old animal and nature-lover, living in North East Victoria, Australia. Despite being chronically ill and disabled with a combination of conditions, I believe that I lead a pretty incredible life! |
I love to learn. In addition to being a circus graduate, before I became too ill to continue with full-time university study, I completed my Bachelor of Behavioural Science (B.B.Sc.), and was invited to become a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society. Since then, I have completed Certificate III in Media (specializing in 3D art and animation for film, games and television) - which I studied online, mostly from bed.
When I was well enough, I used to volunteer my time in my real-life community. Now that I am mostly stuck in bed or a chair, I volunteer online. With this in mind, I am currently studying HTML and CSS, as I believe that these skills will be useful to me in my volunteer work. I am also studying Spanish.
In addition to my love of learning, I love being arty, crafty and creative. Over the years, I have dabbled in many mediums, including 2D and 3D digital art and animation, traditional art, nail art, embroidery, paper craft, beading, photography and writing. I have a tendency to want to decorate everything - especially my splints and mobility aids - as they always seem to look so dull! I also like to collect pretty and useful things (which is definitely not the same thing as 'hoarding' ;D).
In my younger and healthier days, I was an award-winning performing artist, circus performer, singer and dancer. Since becoming too ill to continue with these activities, I have become an award-winning photographer, artist (digital and traditional) and embroiderer. I have also created logos for various websites, and had my art feature in online games (such as Puzzle Pirates).
I feel like my life is pretty awesome, and I am really proud of all that I have achieved in spite of my illness and disability. Although my prognosis worries me sometimes, I am determined to stay happy, be myself, and keep creating and doing the things that I love to do - even if it sometimes means drawing with my feet - as I did when I was unable to use my hands!
When I am not busily creating, studying, volunteering online or AWOL from the Internet due to illness, you will usually find me playing iPad games, tweeting, blogging, visiting DeviantArt, or hanging out in Emerald Kingdom! Come and say hi! I look forward to meeting you!
