dAseniors is the official home for all Senior Members here on DeviantArt. There are various things we do to keep this nursing home alive and kicking; features on our blog, news articles that promote a multitude of happenings, projects that revolve around more than just creating artwork, and hilariously engaging chat events.
Senior Members are users of DeviantArt distinguishable by their medal symbols () behind their user names.
Only Senior Members may join this group as a member, but you are, of course, free to watch this group to stay tuned for our latest updates. In fact, we encourage it!
We hope to launch projects and contests in the near vicinity. These will be open to all members of deviantART, but (co-)hosted by senior members.

Treasures are not goldenIf you truly wish to create wealth, then invest your life into making the lives of those around you better, happier, more connected with the natural world and filled with respect and honor for the elders, the land, the sky, the waters and all that dwell there. True wealth is not in power, possessions or ego, but in the memories and the respect of the people who in your life, you touched, and their lives that live on in joy and honor because of yours. You are who you are because you choose to be, and no other reason. © 2015 Marion Z. SkydancerTreasures are not golden by skiesofchaos

The Difference Between Snakes and RopesLast night there was a womanThe Difference Between Snakes and Ropes by Nichrysalis
where my girl was and she said to me,
“This. That’s what he did.”
A woman isn’t born vulnerable, but
vulnerability is a part of personhood
and being self-aware of insecurities
is more vividly human than vibrancy;
more sexy than secrecy.
I’d compose her movement to music
or pen it on paper, proffer it as poetry
and profess confessions as love
but I’d rather be on standby—
even as passerby—
because I ache and I ache
all the time now, for her.
For her I am sore and unstomachable
and nurse wounds that aren’t mine.
For her, I worry.
I worry and I tighten knots,
practice my box, bow tie, square, slip,
and double coin knots and remember
that the method to madness is comfort;
being complacent with sanity
makes for insanity
and being complacent with a lover
is to take them for granted.
I tighten the same knot
and expect the same result,
wind the bight around again,
again, and again. And bite.
I knot, bight;
