She Don’t Want the World

“The open wound she hides
She just keeps it bundled up and never lets it show
She can’t take much more of this but she can’t let it go
That’s okay, she don’t want the world
And all the things she says
He’s just lying there without someone to hear her cry
She slips off into a dream about a place to hide
That’s okay, she don’t want the world”

The Color Pink

I don’t know why the color pink just feels so natural in a bedroom. Even in my real life bedroom, the minute my ex moved out of the bedroom? I started adding pink. Maybe I’m trying to climb back into the womb. Metaphorically, of course. Although, there was this one time that I had painted my room this beautiful salmon pink, because I fell in love with Sara’s bedroom in Sweet November. Shortly there after, my friend Justin came over and I showed him my bedroom. The first thing he said was, “I feel like I just walked into a giant vagina.” Needless to say, I’ve never had pink walls again. Though I didn’t repaint that bedroom. In fact, my friend Matthew had the pleasure of painting over that pink when he took over my lease. *giggles*
However, the luxury of Second Life allows me to have pink walls one day and gray the next. I love being able to change decor and clothing with the click of a few buttons. It still might take me all day to get the job done, but at least I’m not wrestling with paint brushed, pulling my back out with oversized furniture, or wrestling with jeans that have clearly shrunk in the last few months. *look around innocently and hides her candy*

The Beauty of Art

A dear friend of mine showed me a photograph today and said it was an epic picture. It made me sad. An entire story unfolded in my head around this one photo about technology and change. I thought about how scary change becomes as we grow older. My friend thought the photo represented hope for the future along with lessons from the past. Then we both agreed that the photograph was a truly incredible work of art, because it stirred up such thoughts and emotions. We are both art lovers, but not in the uppity gallery snob kinda way. We love perusing the internet and discovering various forms of art to share, sometimes even discuss.
I found this topic quite fitting for this post, because the decor in this photo is primarily from Fancy Decor. The designer for Fancy Decor is Jake Vordun, who happens to be an avid art lover and has a soft spot for the classics. He’s not closed minded about modern art, though. He shares his finds and loves with anyone willing to explore The Vordun Museum,. There is not cost to explore the gorgeous museum and it is worth return visits as he switches out the exhibits quite regularly.
If art, particularly, various types of art is something you enjoy. I encourage you to do a quick search inworld and you’ll soon discover there is an endless array of art exhibits, as well as artists to discover in this amazing virtual world we call Second Life. That’s also why you’ll almost always find a piece of art accompanying his furniture collections.

Don’t Worry

“Let advance worrying become advance thinking and planning.” ~Winston Churchill

Do you find yourself beginning your thoughts with ‘what if?’ What if the store is out of my favorite brand of wine? What if I don’t get that job? What if rains tomorrow? Worrying about things that haven’t’ even happened puts you in a state of stress, where you waste so much energy worrying about things you have no control over.  Well, here’s a suggestion. Rather than focusing on all those ‘what ifs,’ that are on your mind, create a solutions list. If the store is out of your favorite wine, think about an adequate substitute. Afterall, that’s not the end of the world. Keep sending out your resume and take those interview appointments. What else are you going to do if you don’t get THAT job, right? Pick an outfit that won’t be destroyed by the rain, have an umbrella ready, and a hairstyle that won’t take on a mind of its own. Now if it rains, it doesn’t matter so much, because you are fully prepared and you’re going to look great!
By going from worrying to planning mode, you can have a variety of solutions on hand regardless of the outcome. Besides worrying doesn’t change anything, but planning sure can.

Nothing Lasts

“I pray to God
To stop these thoughts
It works for me
Can’t you see
I know that I’m better
I’m writing this letter
To my past self
Sitting on the shelf

Nothing lasts
It’s for the best
I won’t stay here
I won’t stay there
‘Cause now I’m happy
For You have changed me
I am so thankful
No longer painful”

Music Speaks

I have a tendency to overthink things. If something is wrong with one of my friends and they don’t want to talk about it….or at least not with me or not right now? I will run the gambit with thoughts about what could be bothering them and whether or not I am to blame. I want to fix it. I want to make it better. As I’m sure some of my friends often want to do with me. Let someone sling mud about me or at me, that will be stuck in my head for ages. I will go back and forth questioning whether I deserved that or not. I’ll wonder if I should apologize or just wash my hands of the whole ordeal.
I started this blog almost three years ago. I started it strictly for the therapeutic value. I saw it working wonders in Kess’ life and I was going through one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to deal with. She knew it and despite the blog therapy, I’m still dealing with that same real life bullshit that got me started, but I’m a lot closer to the end of that and the beginning of a new chapter. So, my blog has been about me expressing myself through words and photos, but I find myself quoting songs or just listing the entire lyrics quite a bit. I struggle with doing that, because so often I do feel as though its a bit of a cop out. However, there are times that music is what inspired a photo or when a song expresses everything I’m feeling in a far better way than I could. I apologized for that several times last year, but I had readers that told me they understood it. I even had readers tell me that I introduced them to music they had never heard before. So, this year, I will make no apologies for how I express myself in MY blog. Oddly enough, there’s no song for this post….*laughs*…but there will surely be one in an upcoming blog, cuz I might have already gotten it ready. *winks*

A Journey

“Life is a journey, not a destination.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are the architects of our own lives. It’s up to us to look around at the things that bring us joy. to stop always focusing on the finish line, and start looking at the journey. This applies to people, places, and things. Whether rich or poor, we have a say in some of these things and whenever we have that power, we should take advantage of it. For instance, the people in our lives, our place in life, the things we own….all of these things we surround ourselves with are interchangeable. Perhaps not instantly, but these changes are as much a part of our journey as anything else. There’s no where easier to make these changes than in Second Life, so if  you’re not happy with your current situation, do what you need to do to change it. No sense tormenting yourself for the entire journey or the destination won’t be worth getting to at all.

Create Fantasy

“A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy,” – Juan Montoya

This is exactly how I feel about decorating. I absolutely love decorating, especially in Second Life. I will say that listing everything in a decor blog can be a bit tedious, but the end result is always so satisfying and I find the process to be almost like meditation.
In the middle of writing this, I was delivered some rather alarming news in Second Life and found out that I have to speak with my real life ex in a couple of hours. So, my train of thought is lost, but by all means, check out the scene and all the amazing creations listed below. Happy Shopping!♥
