What I Need

In the real world, I live in the Southern U.S. region and there are some pretty common phrases around these parts that have various meanings depending on the context in which they’re used. One of those is “Y’all need Jesus” or “You need Jesus.” I refer to the state of Alabama (where I actually live,…

Embracing Change

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. George Bernard Shaw I’ve written about how there are a lot of changes going on in my life these days and as I face the changes I didn’t choose, I’ve also embraced the theme of change by welcoming some other changes….

Lady On Red

My close friends will be quick to tell you that my drink of choice is tequila. A few months ago, someone even introduced me to a better tequila than I had been drinking and that was a dangerous introduction. Too many bottles of that have met their end with me. Don’t misunderstand, I’m not a drunkard….

Pants Are Overrated

For a good portion of the world, it is summertime. For me that means unbearable heat and humidity. I hate sweating, but I do appreciate the warm weather. I appreciate that, more than any other time of the year,  I can enjoy fewer layers and I find comfort in some of life’s simplest pleasures.  Ice cream,…

Mad World

“It’s a very, very mad world, mad world.” ~Mad World by Tears For Fears (or whichever cover you prefer) I’ve long argued that the world is not worse than it used to be, we simply know more about what’s going on around the world due to technological advances. There’s not more child abuse, rape, war,…

Imagine

“Imagine all the people Living life in peace… ” ~John Lennon Imagine I can’t imagine anyone not love this song, but in today’s world that is being ravaged by violence and hate. I cannot help but hold onto the belief that there are enough dreamers like me that want a peace and unified world. I…

Sady and the City

A great city is that which has the greatest men and women. Walt Whitman I realize I have already blogged about Elysium City of Templemore, but if you’ve been there you understand my enthusiasm and if you haven’t you should go soon. After only one visit you will surely share my excitement. As my dear friend,…

Fighting For Peace

“Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.”― George Carlin This has been one of my all time favorite quotes for a very long time and with all of the wretched violence going on in the world right now, it makes more sense than ever. I won’t get into my political views or where I…

This City Has Gone to the Dogs

This is probably the most fun I’ve had putting a picture together and to be honest, it had me feeling a bit like Cruella DeVille, despite the fact that there’s not a single Dalmatian in the mix. However, I was speaking with Jamie Cross of unKindness about her amazing Concrete Jungle gacha set for The…

Rainy Days

The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow. Gilbert K. Chesterton I chose two quotes this time, because I feel like they go hand in hand….

Feline Frisky

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.” ― Robert A. Heinlein This quote makes me giggle, because I have three cats in real life and one dog. However, the cats are all boys and the dog is female. Which leaves the human…

The Streets of Templemore

Sometimes the beauty is easy. Sometimes you don’t have to try at all. Sometimes you can hear the wind blow in a handshake. Sometimes there’s poetry written right on the bathroom wall. Ani DiFranco I love exploring Second Life and discovering the beautiful areas that others have created, as I take great pride in creating…
