Lost Traditions

Its been about eight years since my mom’s best friend died. Her name was Brenda and she was Aunt Brenda to me, my entire life. She and my mom had been friends since they were kids. They were even pregnant at the same time and “my cousin” was born only a few months before me. Funny…

Once Upon a Time…

While I no longer have a close relationship with my father, I was crazy about him when I was a little girl. One of the things that fascinated me was his love for motorcycles. Not street bikes like I’ve been showing you, but dirt bikes. I remember one time he had seven motorcycles, four of…

Quiet Christmas

Everyone talks about how the holidays are all about family and appreciating your loved ones. Yet, you rarely hear anyone say, “Hey, its okay to be alone on the holidays” or “I’d love a nice quiet Christmas at home alone with my furbabies.” I think the reason is because society and tradition have told us…

Dark & Merry Christmas?

I’m a tad different from everyone else in my family, which should come as no shock to anyone that knows me or where I live. Most of my close friends in SL know that my RL bedroom has dark burgundy walls and all of my decor is black & white, with an abundance of skulls…

Winter Dreams

Thanksgiving in the U.S. seems to set the the tone for the holidays, for me, at least. That is the day that the Holiday season truly begins. As we transition from Halloween to a few weeks of Autumn, its the day after the turkey is carved that my family has always set up our Christmas…

Tis the Season

Tis the season to start seeing the Thanksgiving feasts on Facebook, the Christmas commercials, and all the rhetoric going back and forth about Merry Christmas vs Happy Holidays! I’m just going to say this, “I don’t care!” I love the holiday season and I love seeing how everyone celebrates! No matter what they celebrate or…

Escape

“If I could escape And recreate a place as my own world” Gwen Stefani The Sweet Escape That’s exactly what we have in Second Life, isn’t it? We can’t escape everything, but doesn’t it offer the most delightful distraction from our real life problems. That is until we find ourselves with problems in SL that…

In the Wind

“I close my eyes only for a moment, and the moment’s gone All my dreams pass before my eyes, a curiosity Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea All we do crumbles to the ground, though we refuse…

Ride

My friend, Kobie, recently blogged his girlfriend and one of my best friends, Grace Sixpence. I loved the idea so much that I’ve decided to do the same. Today, I’m blogging Tracy Redangel.  You see, she’s had a tremendous impact on my life and despite the way I pick at her on Facebook…she is priceless…

Getting Cold Out

When I saw this Body Blanket from The Annex, I couldn’t help but chuckle at how accurate things in Second Life are mirroring my Real Life. I’ve been sickish the last few days, fighting allergies or a cold, I don’t even know what it is, but demons have taken over my body and I don’t like…

Exposed

The past few weeks have been an emotional roller-coaster ride and its far from over. However, a new friend recently got me to open up about some of my feelings and while it left me feeling vulnerable as well as exposed, I have admit there has been some relief. My blog has always been somewhat…

What if…(Arranmore)

Yep, I’m up to the ole “What if…” scenario again. Let me explain how this one happened. I put together the outfit, loved it, wore it out a few places, came home to take pics, decided to go out into the world to take pics, landed at Arranmore, saw the crow, giggled at how closely…
