Halloween-Facebook-Covers

Greetings everyone!

I have several Facebook pages besides a profile and I enjoy making Facebook covers for them, including covers with some of my quotes I've authored. These are Halloween themed covers I've been making.

If it seems like I'm here on my blogs sometimes and other times not, it's because I have my blogs as a hobby type thing, posting when I can and when other general responsibilities of life aren't consuming all of my time. Being creative, whether through art, writing, music, etc., is who I am; it's at the core of my being and I enjoy being creative immensely and it's when I feel most in my element.

Also, I used to be able to work on my computer and be active online simultaneously, allowing me to post 'as I completed something'. Now however, I can no longer ever since my computer was hacked two years ago, destroying the harddrive. So, now my creative time is separate from my online/posting time because my computer is no longer connected to the Internet for obvious reasons. I'm not about to give the computer programmer/stalker responsible for $3000 in damages another chance to destroy my computer's harddrive again.

Halloween-Crossword-Puzzle

Greetings everyone!

I used to belong to and moderate a children's website, which was a Heddate site, but is now defunct and is currently a Japanese website. I like to work with and create for children and this crossword puzzle is just one of the many fun things I did for the children on the former children's site. I originally created it in 2006 and just a couple days ago I gave it a makeover. I'm posting it now so children can enjoy doing it. If anyone wants the answers, contact me and I'll be more than happy to send the answers to you.

Spirits-Summons

Greetings everyone!

Halloween is almost here...

Stirring, stirring...

Dellaroo stands, smiling over her pot,
Stirring up a potion, bubbling hot.
"Come one, come all!
It's time for a spiritual ball!"
She spews forth a chant, repeated in three.
She dances with joy, tickled with glee.
As the vapors rise, forms appear.
Her summons' been heard, far and near.
A wicked grin creeps across her face,
An assortment of spirits all over the place. 
"Spirits come forth! Arise! Arise!
Come! Come! Reveal thyselves before my eyes!
Ghosts! Ghosts! Condense your matter.
Your chains create a melodic clatter.
Goblins and ghouls, conspire, contrive.
The hunt begins when you all arrive." 

Stirring, stirring...

Dellaroo looks around, her heart aglee.
Piercing the veil of darkness she doth see.
So many eyes of perilous demise,
Each in their own unique disguise.
"Is everyone here? Practice your gloom.
Perfect your craft. The darkness consume.
The instillment of fright has begun,
As this haunting commences, bring on the fun!" 

Stirring, stirring...

”The hour of twelve, ready, set, prowl.
The wolves, awakened, are starting to howl.
Go forth now. Frighten your best.
Many souls await you in your quest.
Utilize those closets and beds, underneath,
Perfect places to rattle and chatter your teeth.
Add some wailing moans, but don't call it quits,
‘Til you've scared all the living out of their wits!" 

Stirring, stirring...

Three-Halloween-Guests

Greetings everyone!

This poem I wrote along with creating artwork to go with it back in October, 2007 as entries in the Halloween art and poetry competitions Elftown.com used to have. Unfortunately, Elftown has become a virtual ghost town now, barely able to maintain a hundred active members, when it used to have many thousands of active members.

I have many great memories from the days when Elftown was a lot of fun to be on, with many great, talented artists and writers. To say I once loved the site and supported it immensely would be a profoundly gross under statement. Some who I became friends with, I am still friends with today.

But I also have many horrible memories brought on in a nutshell because of one, high ranking person's obsession on the site and another on the site with a high ranking position who was consumed with resentful, bitter jealousy over the obsession that only time has provided me with the vital information connecting the dots. Harbouring and feeding an obsession is seldom if ever good or healthy. Jealousy is a VERY destructive trait to feed and nurture and so, both are traits I choose to starve, steer clear of.

First, I'm posting my latest version of the artwork, a remake with a much better monitor to work with along with much more experience creating digitally, and then the second image is the original. I've also learned since that the PNG format is the much better format for saving art as. The poem is as I wrote it in 2007 and it was a winning entry in Elftown's Halloween Poetry Competition.

The Halloween bash has begun.
Most of the guests have come.
There's ghosts and goblins, witches, too.
They've gathered around their boiling brew.
Somehow, the party seems incomplete,
Even though, there's a variety of feet.

Then, the door opens and there stands three.
Three unknowns, who might they be?

The first is dressed in fleece, a sheep.
Silenced are all, not even a peep.
The second walks in, a pig for sure.
Grunts escape, as he leans on the door.
The third, the last, wearing a crimson hood,
Everyone's eyeing, in the entrance he stood.

The party resumes with ghoulish fun.
Some tricks are played on more than one.
No one's concerned with the three let in,
Nor to the fact, they're not even of kin.

The striking of twelve has long since passed. 
The brew is cold, the scene aghast.
Where are the guests? No laughing or screaming,
'Cept the three, sleeping and dreaming,
With paws on their bellies, they're snoring loud,
They've really enjoyed, eating the crowd!

This is my very first digital work. I had just started to use a computer and the only program I had to use at the time was Paint. I created this using a mouse only, which is still all I use with my digital artworks. There's one other I did about the same time, which I have somewhere. Sometime later, I added the frame with PaintShop Pro, initially owned by Jasc and is now owned by Corel.

Have-A-Blessed-Day

Greetings everyone!

I wrote this poem in about twenty minutes one day while I was working on my Rhymetyme Blog and it's on a page there, Have a Blessed Day, instead of as a post here on Heartbeats.

This poem creates an example of someone wishing another or others a blessed day, with an expression of understanding they know it's not always as easy to do as it may sound, but also suggests how another or others might accomplish actually turning a downer day into one better and feeling blessed. Oftentimes the best way we can help another is to help and encourage them to find and utilize what they already have within themselves because this helps them to find their own courage and strength, while building their confidence, self esteem, and so, their self worth. When we help others, if we simply do 'for them' what they need, they don't learn then how to do for themselves. When people don't do for themselves, they can't gain confidence, self worth, and so forth that are the most basic traits needed for a well balanced, emotionally and mentally stable individual.


I've been at some very low times in my life. Likely, most folks have been at one time or another. The one common denominator I've come to learn that is what saved me and pulled me out of the quagmire of feeling hopeless is finding and grasping onto the lifeline of being grateful for something, which may be some 'thing' or some 'one'. Usually, if you can find one thing to be grateful for, you'll find there is much more as well to be grateful for. 

We can't be dependent upon others for our emotional state of being nor should we be. Cultivating an "attitude of gratitude" is not only an asset for our character, but it may also serve as our emotional and mental lifeline as well.

I wish for you a blessed day right from the start,
With joy and Love abundantly felt within your heart.
But if you are feeling somewhat sad and blue,
Then may these words bring some hope just for you.

It's difficult to dismiss the troubles on our mind,
Such can steal our joy, be to our heart unkind.
Yesterdays can spill over into the new of today,
Especially fears and worries that can get in our way.

Life can surely beat us down into a deep ravine,
With walls so steep our blessings can't then be seen
And when we're separated from reasons to be grateful,
This can lead a heart to bitterness, even turn to hateful.

If we practice every day, our blessings, we rehearse, 
Life's tribulations can't, our state of mind, reverse.
When we feel ourselves struggling with holding onto hope,
Our blessings we are grateful for, supplies our life rope.

All those deep ravines with quicksand at their base,
Waiting to suck us in, into a dark, hopeless place,
Where our hope and happiness can then be devoured,
Unless with gratitude for blessings we remain empowered.

I wish for you a day full of blessings to be grateful for,
And if trouble comes a knocking, to pound down your door,
You'll have the power within you, in your hands and in your heart,
If with gratitude you are, allowing it to play its key role and part.

Have a Blessed Day; count your blessings, every one,
As your day begins, throughout, and when your day is done.
You'll always be well armed then against every darker force
Attempting to steal your hope away and your peaceful course.

💗 Have a Blessed Day! 💗

Because of fear within a heart to let their feelings show,
Except for in their dreams where their desire is met,

Google+1-Button-n-View-Count

Greetings everyone!

Ordinarily, I post my art, poetry, and quotes. But this post is an exception because I'm this disappointed with Google's latest developments or should I say, "digressive moves". I Google and Google products and services for the most part, but what they did by implementing Google Photos to replace Picasa and now, what they've done with the Google +1 button, perhaps someone should inform them that they are NOT making "improvements".

As I've stated, generally speaking I like Google products and services and I appreciate the fact they offer so many for free or for very reasonable, affordable rates. But with this said,  I still can't comprehend why Google makes the changes they do, especially  when the changes make Google digressive instead of progressive. 

Google gave up Picasa Web and put in motion instead, Google Photos.  All older photos/images have been archived. Now archived, the "OWNER of the photos/images" cannot do ANYTHING with THEIR OWN photos/images, except download or delete. They cannot be edited, moved, or anything else. You can't get the actual image link address to any photos, either, whether new or old. The only way I know of to get the "actual image address" for an image is to upload it to a blogger blog of mine. So, I have to ask, how does one achieve this if they don't have a blogger blog? 

On top of this, ALL view counts have been removed and the G+ is no longer available for photos. Why? Why can't we, the owners of the images, know if our images/photos are being viewed and/or G+'ed? I'm an artist, poet, and writer of quotes. So yeah, I like to know if my works are being seen and/or liked (G+'ed) or not. Most creative types do. How many creative people, for example, create say, an artwork and then shove it in a closet or somewhere out of sight? Not too many! How about photographers? Do they take photos to 'hide' them? Of course not! 

People in general like to know if what they put out there is being seen and/or liked or not. Otherwise, what's the point? There isn't any point or purpose for posting anything, regardless if for the general public or for a limited audience, if what's being posted isn't to be seen by others and on the Internet the only way to know this, is through the like/G+ buttons, view counter, and comments. Since many don't bother writing comments, the like/G+ button and view count are two invaluable tools. Taking them away or drastically limiting their usage and availability can't be anything but a huge step backwards, digressive.

Then what about those who rely on tools to help them with marketing their product or service? Views and likes or G+'s help them know what content works better for them and what doesn't. Here again, relying on people commenting to show support and/or liking something is unreliable and primitive when there are better and more productive tools that can be used 'in conjunction with' comments. I can't perceive that those in online marketing can possibly be pleased with the digression.

..And the G+ button is "evolving"!? This is what Google's been saying when you click on the G+ button on my blogs anyway for about a month or so. The emperor was fully clothed too as he marched down the street, I suppose? (From The Emperor's New Clothes fable) Removing the G+ count from everywhere, except on Google Plus is considered by Google to be "evolving"!? Confining the G+ count to Google Plus only is a "progressive move"!? Who and how many at Google aren't getting their proper rest to think clearly? 

Just one more way for Facebook to have the advantage because Facebook like buttons and counts are everywhere. The Facebook Developers must be loving this latest move by Google. Google+ is already so isolated and isolating the G+ button's count now as well by confining it to Google+ posts only, can only isolate the social media site even more. Is Google trying or wanting to do away with Google+? It's looking like they are because instead of making 'improvements', they're taking away tools many like and even rely on that are offered still by other competitive social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

So, ALL view counts Google has removed and now ALL G+ counts have been removed, except on ONLY Google+ "posts". "Not everyone belongs to Google+, Google." I'm thinking that I might as well remove my G+ button from my blogs because Shareaholic has it covered to G+ a blog post and then I don't have to be constantly reminded that Google took my G+ count away. I hope Google doesn't take over Twitter because all the likes and impressions will be removed from Twitter too probably.

But it doesn't do any good to complain even with validity because Google just does things from Google's perspective, making us, the users, feel like we don't matter and as with anything that relies on the users/consumers approval ratings and support, when this approval and support wanes, falls by the wayside, no matter how big an entity is, it will crumble as a result eventually. 

Users and/or consumers are the ones who make or break a business, organization, website, etc.. If those who are running the show aren't acutely aware of this key factor and it's crucial role in keeping a business, organization, website, etc. going AND thriving, whatever entity it is, it can't thrive or survive. Ignoring the users/consumers, the 'backbone element', does have a negative impact, unnoticeable at first but cumulatively over time produces dire, irreversible consequences. Google is big but Google is not exempt from being subjected to users'/consumers' make or break capability. Without us users/consumers, Google wouldn't still be in existence. 

..And speaking of websites, the main reason why Elftown.com died is because the regular users, the community body, the 'backbone element', were ignored and treated like they were insignificant (and many were mocked, belittled, and even harassed by some staff members), while a number of those running the site took on an air of self promotion and importance. The site became a place run by and to serve an elitist group, cliche, who used double standards and sucked up to a manipulating ringleader, who if someone disagreed with or didn't kiss their behind, they were then made the subjects of petty, childish, and cruel insults, and often collectively by several staff members (mobbing). There was a complete lack of professionalism by several running the site. But then again, on the whole how professional can teenagers running anything be? It's not that young folks aren't intelligent or don't have good, new and fresh ideas, because they are and do, but very few have enough "experience" to run a website "professionally". So, as a result, a once really great website, has bitten the dust.

Therefore, the point is, running an entity and keeping it thriving and surviving is keeping the users/consumers pleased with and wanting to use whatever it is that's being offered. Alienate the users/consumers and the beginning of the end inevitably looms on the horizon.

I did a WIP of this in 2008. I couldn't decide whether I wanted to go with a unicorn or a Pegasus. Ultimately, I wound up making both. A comment about the WIP Pegasus I received was, "Astounding!" Hence, when I finished it finally in 2013, I decided to title this work, "Astounding Stallion".

Bubbles and butterflies on a sunny day
Can delight little kitties who like to play.

Greetings everyone!

Since we're into the summer season here in the Northern Hemisphere, this seems quite apropos or so it does appear.

Enjoy some time in the water, 
Whether in the ocean or a pool;
Have a safe and happy summer
And when it's hot, keep Kool!

"If we trust someone and we get burned,
Then trust them again, we haven't learned.
The first time round 'they' bear the shame,
But after this, it's ours to claim."
