Dream

“Dream on Dream until your dreams come true” ~Aerosmith Dream On This line, from one of my all time favorite songs really hit home this morning when I woke from dreaming about friends from Second Life. This isn’t all that abnormal, I’ve often dreamed about my friends from this virtual land, but last night’s dream…

Summer Colds Suck

“How are you feeling?” they all ask. I want to tell them that I feel like road kill or that it feels like death just took a shit on my head. I want to be dramatic and cry out, “I’M DYING!” Okay, maybe I did say those things to a few of my closest friends, but…

Controversy

A strong spirit transcends rules. ~Prince How true it is…I just wrote yesterday about “differentness” and how I struggled to find my place in the world after we quit moving. Prince played such a huge role in my road of self discovery. I’ll share one quick story and then get on with the picture and…

Differentness

“I didn’t belong as a kid, and that always bothered me. If only I’d known that one day my differentness would be an asset, then my early life would have been much easier.” ― Bette Midler My father was a soldier in the U.S. Army. While very young (2-10yrs old), we moved a lot. Each…

A Butterfly

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne I cannot think of a single thing to say that could elaborate on this quote. It is simple and direct. This quote serves as a reminder to be…

Good Girl

“I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don’t mind…

Spirit of Wine

O thou invisible spirit of wine, if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call thee devil. William Shakespeare Those that know me well, know that Tequila is my drink of choice, but on occasion I do enjoy a nice glass of wine. I’ve been exploring red wines quite a bit recently…

Keep Busy

“One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.” ~Lucille Ball What a great quote and something I’ve definitely applied to my life lately. As life spins out of control around me,…

Raise Hell

Its Friday and every Friday I make a conscious decision on whether or not to drink and raise a little hell in Second Life. A lot of this depends on my closest friends. Let’s face it, getting drunk alone in front of a computer screen…just sad, but do that shit with some of your best…

Music ♥

“Music is what feelings sound like out loud. I sing songs that speak from my heart. They tell my story, how I feel.” ― Georgia Cates This has long been one of my favorite quotes. I remember years ago I learned a little lesson about controlling my feelings. The first lesson I learned was that I…

Everywhere I Look

“Imagination is the true magic carpet.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale Isn’t that true? Especially in a virtual world like Second Life where we’re not only allowed but encouraged to push beyond the boundaries of our own imaginations. I’m continuously amazed by all the beauty I encounter in this virtual world. From beautiful clothing, to furnishings…

Not Listening

“Don’t listen to what anybody says except the people who encourage you. If it’s what you want to do and it’s within yourself, then keep going and try to do it for the rest of your life.” ~ Jake Gyllenhaal I love this quote because I’m not a very good listener when it comes to…
