Sanctuary for All by Iardacil Sanctuary for All by Iardacil
Everybody's looking for that something
One thing that makes it all complete
You find it in the strangest places
Places you never knew it could be

Some find it in the face of their children
Some find it in their lover's eyes
Who can deny the joy it brings
When you found that special thing
You're flying without wings

Some find it sharing every morning
Some in their solitary lives
You find it in the words of others
A simple line can make you laugh or cry

Westlife - Flying Without Wings

Dedicated for *Iribel who is amazing artist, great people and dear friend.

Totally inspired by Tv show "Sanctuary". I watched it when they just had those webisodes and now they were picked up for real tv and after I had seen the new pilot, I just could not hold back my emotions. I love it and they had done it even better than in webisodes - the meaning and message is out more clearly than ever and after that it all was just boiling inside me.

As the title already reference - it is a sanctuary, the hiding place and not for only few lucky, it is for all. We all are different - there are no people like me or you. We are all unique and with our own pros and cons and we should never change them. But so many unique persons in this whole world - it is never easy and sooner or later there will be some bad words, misunderstanding and things said we wish we could take back.

We are all so different and we can get hurt by words never meant to hurt that person. I have done it and never meant it. I am still sorry for that. And when we have broken down, feel like all the weight of the world is on our shoulders, there should be place where we all can hide, cry out and gather ourselves. And as the lyrics at the top of the description say - it can be found it places we could never expect. We could find it even if we were not looking. What matters is that there is someplace special for all of us. For some it can be their home, for other lonely stormy seaside... Wherever it is, it brings us peace and gives us change to think over things that pressure us.

For me, my sanctuary is my dreams. I have been one big dreamer from my early ages. Written "books" of fantasy lands, then played LARP and now making photomanips. And I have found so much peace and I think in one part of my life, without manips, I would have not kept going... so.. I wish to share with you the peace, the calm wind and my dreams in my sanctuary where all of you are welcome.

Productions note:
*the hair killed me.. sorry if it not as perfect as I wished. I played with it.. redraw and redraw again but did not get the result I wanted
*totally time consuming work..
*special too..
