Grow

Once upon a time a very long time ago, I was going through a rough time and it was an especially rainy spring. So much rain fell that spring that my city dealt with floods, which is very rare for where I live. I was complaining about my life and the rain, when a dear…

Rock On

You don’t need anybody to tell you who you are or what you are. You are what you are! John Lennon As of late there’s been more controversy on the pages of Facebook than usual. Most of it seems to be politically based, as several countries around the world are dealing with some new and…

Home

“Home is where my habits have a habitat” ― Fiona Apple I don’t do a lot of decor posts, but you can bet when I do I am crazy about the way it all looks. I have a few go to stores in SL that have long been my habitual furniture stores and so long…

My Happy Place

Everyone needs a happy place, whether its a real place, a virtual place, or just somewhere you go mentally. About four years ago, a friend of mine took me to Hazardous and it has been my favorite place on the grid ever since. Its not a fancy place, but its peaceful and beautiful. Sometimes I…

Freedom

Freedom is something that dies unless it’s used. Hunter S. Thompson As a U.S. citizen, I think freedom is something I and many of my fellow Americans have taken for granted. I am not going to get all political. I think there’s far too much of that going on across the internet as it stands,…

Shades of Silver

I don’t have a witty antidote or funny story. I’m just crazy in love with this outfit. I love silver, so when I find gorgeous silver and gray items that just fall in line together…yeah. There are so many amazing events going on right now and by mixing some older things with some newer items…

Drive Away

I watch a lot of my friend struggling with letting go and walking away. I know people have often thought of me as cold and callous, because I possess this almost innate ability to walk away and let go. However, this was not a skill I developed over time. This was something that was thrust…

Loved and Lost…or just Lost

‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Alfred Lord Tennyson This is one of those quotes that has quickly become cliche’. Yes, I accept that it is true, but damnit I hate hearing it right after a break up. In Second Life, things often move at a different…

Support

Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself – and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is….

Being Human

“I am a realist. No one wakes up happy every morning, everyone has good days and bad days; it is called being human.” ― Ken Poirot I’ve been reading all sorts of interesting posts on Facebook lately. Opinions, so many opinions, and what an interesting and beautifully human world we live in, that so many opinions…

Strapped

With all the amazing events going on in Second Life right now, its amazing I have any lindens at all. I am definitely strapped for cash and my avatar is strapped from top to bottom as a statement. I’m such a dork. Honestly, I just love all the straps and harnesses that are out there…

Weed or Flower

“A weed is but an unloved flower.” ― Ella Wheeler Wilcox This simple line from Ella Wheeler Wilcox’s poem, “The Weed,” is so poignant. Without the love and kindness of those around us, would we not all feel like weeds? I cannot fathom where I’d be if not for the mingling of my spirit with…
