What honestly humbles me the most when it comes to dA, is that even when I am doing absolutely nothing, and seldom comment on your stuff lately (It's not due to me being uninterested, I just have become super busy lately, and I need to adjust my classwork/dA work) I still average at least 50 pageviews a day. I think that is lovely. While I don't look at pageviews when it comes to popularity, it's nice that my inactivity has made it so I am not forgotten.
So to show my appreciation, I would really like to kick my first year off on dA with a BANG. And that is with what? Making my own contest, with what as a grand prize? A One-Year Premium Membership

Okay, here is the theme!
No, no, no! It does not have to be about me (unless you want it to be, but that won't give you an advantage )! I mean I want you to incorporate those two words as themes in your piece, the universe, fond memories of your childhood, stars, space, galaxies, dreams, hopes, past, present. Everything! Anything! Let your creativity go wild!
All mediums of art is accepted. And please, if you wouldn't mind, please state it was for this contest.
