[FEATURE] The Joy of SolitaireAs we draw nearer to Singles Appreciation Day, let us reflect on the power of one and the majesty that can be found in the roaring silence of solitude. Let us also reflect inward and give our inner self some attention as we wander through this vast world we call home. And always remember friends...you don't need contrivances to show your true heart. The true worth of a human being is not measured in physical badges of honor, but in how well one treats the others around and within their sphere of influence.Some music to set the mood.:iconhermetic-wings:One source of light to illuminate the day...:iconnao1967:One flower to express the feelings of the heart...:iconsabz0r:One downpour to remind us that not everything works out as planned...

[FEATURE] A Matter of PerspectiveBeing able to see the bigger picture is essential to a well-lived creative life. In that respect, I hope you take a moment to reflect on the lessons of having a grounded perspective in your life as you take in these wonderful pieces. Enjoy! To begin, I would love to introduce you to my personal friend (as in flesh and blood 'see you at Sunday brunch' friend) Mike. He's a poet and fiction writer and occasionally takes some interesting photographs. He's just joined us here on dA and I hope you'll all give him a warm welcome. :iconmwpostnovel61: :iconhermetic-wings:
[FEATURE] In My Dreams......I walk on your water and leave footprints in the waves under these clear clouded skies...I thought a robust elemental theme would be a good motif for this latest feature. Enjoy! :iconhermetic-wings: :iconnao1967: :iconsabz0r:

Scumdogs of the Internet.If there's one thing that should be readily apparent to any internet user in the 21st Century, it's that trolls are the scum of the universe. They rarely, if ever, have any relevant utility with regard to the internet and, if what I've read in certain books is true, they are anything but worthwhile human beings on the whole. It's no wonder then that they hide behind their internet connections when spewing their vitriol. I guess they just have an inherent awareness that they'd never survive an ass-kicking in the real world. As such, when these bottom feeders bite, I bite back, and I bite back hard in some cases.This puts me in a bit of a tough spot because the language I often use to put these bits of scum in their place is very often off-putting to the other half of the internet - the bright-sided, let's-all-get-along, live-and-let-live wishful thinkers that unerringly want to sweep anything 'negative' under the rug and insist that it isn't still there. I can understand their unease a
Link DumpI have a nasty habit of filing away links that I never get around to reading but that I feel are of merit. In some cases, I do end up reading the article in question and then I file it away for later reference. In any event, I decided to go through my backlog and just post the more relevant links here for other people to read.Mental Health IssuesThis Person Explains Why Children From Abusive Families Analyze Every Single Detail And It’s Heartbreaking25 'Harmless' Comments That Actually Hurt People With Mental Illness11 Things Only Someone On Antidepressants Understands10 Things People Do That Actually Mean 'I'm Thinking Ab
Wash Up, Folks. Wash Up. [feature]My good friend :iconsabz0r: decided to post some very interesting ink wash work recently and it reminded me of a little piece I did back in art school -I wont pretend for a second, though, that I'm in the same league as her with regard to skill level, as you can see from these pieces -That being said, I did enjoy the work I did back in art school and it's probably a shame that I didn't try to explore the medium further. Regardless, I thought it would be interesting to explore some of the other impressive ink wash (and related) work posted here on dA. Enjoy!

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.Disclaimer 1:I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).Disclaimer 2:This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!Regular Payments / ABsSome believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy

TLECs 2nd Annual Training Show RESULTS UPSo, this is a wee bit late, please ignore the huge time gap. XDTLEC has decided to once again, open its gates to the public for another large training show. This time, it was to be run a little differently. Last time was stressful, and thats not the point of a training show. With that being said, they set up the new list of classes and decided on a different judging style. This time, there would be playful classes as well, to make it more family oriented. Rules- No fighting or harassment, we are an equal opportunity stable - All breeds may enter, but no unnatural powers may be used to get an advantage- Judging is simple, both effort and rng for performance (guide will be listed below)- Linearts, Photomanips, Trades, and Commissions may enter (tracing is allowed, at the very least list you have used a ref)- Old entries may be submitted, but will receive a penalty for not fitting the setting- No extra
Hi everyone!I usually hate seeing journals like this, but given that I’ve spent 13 years on this site and met thousands of people, knowing there are at least a few of you who would probably want to hear if something was going on, I figure this is the only way to tell you.For the past several years I’ve been dealing with health issues that I originally attributed to being overweight and/or having a sedentary lifestyle.A few months ago, I was dealing with a chronic sinus infection and drainage from hell. To offset my symptoms and maybe get some sleep for once, I went to bed with a breathe-right strip on my nose. I woke up with no nose strip to be found and a weird feeling in my throat, like something was there. I went to the emergency room assuming I had swallowed the strip; they looked in my throat and said they didn’t see any plastic strip, but they did see that my throat (epiglottis, vocal cords etc) was terribly swollen, and because I work at an airport, tuberculosis had to b
