He Smiled

He was a loner. He kept to himself and lived a minimal life. His only relationship was with the old woman at the Quick Shop on the edge of town, where he bought beer and supplies. He didn’t really celebrate holidays, but every year that sweet old woman would give him a box lovingly wrapped with an ornament attached. Inside the box was always the same, a dozen pair of colorful socks. It was the one time a year he smiled.

thanks for the socks dad

Just a Quote

“And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter— they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long.”
― Sylvia PlathThe Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Dangerous Proposition

Alright, so its been happening to me a lot lately, that I’m hitting a wall when it comes to something to write about. I know, that may come as quite a shock to some of my friends as I’m usually quite chatty with them, but for some reasons I’ve really struggled with things to say lately. I’d hate to turn my blog into nothing but pictures and songs. However, at the rate I’m going these days I fear that may soon become the case. So, for those of you that actually read my blog, I am asking you to submit some questions or topics for me to write about. No matter how silly or insane, I will make it a point to write SOMETHING about whatever is suggested. So, toss me a comment below or on my Facebook page and I will give it my best shot! I fear this is a dangerous proposition, because some of you might give me something insane, but I’m going to do it…so there’s the challenge!

DRD Does it Again!

I’m sure it’s not secret that I’m a huge fan of DRD, especially their post apocalyptic creations. Just when I think they can’t possibly create any more of their amazing apocalyptic designs, they prove me wrong. Just in time for Remnant. If you’ve ever wanted to create an apocolyptic world in SL, Death Row Designs is the place to go. I could honestly rave on and on about DRD, but I’ll stop here and let you grab a peek of their latest and greatest! Now, whatcha waiting for? Go on over to Remnant or even DRD and get your end of the world land started!

Time

“Pleasure and action make the hours seem short.” ~William Shakespeare

I found this quote and recognized immediately the adage of time flying when you’re having fun. Yet, its not always when we’re having fun, is it? A work day never goes by as quickly as a busy one. Of course, those are the days we feel like we never got enough done, either. Time is a funny thing, isn’t it? When you’re a little kid you’re always waiting for something and it’s never here soon enough. Commercials are too long, movies aren’t long enough. Work days are too long, we don’t sleep long enough. One minute you’re 25, ten feet tall and bullet proof, the next minute…well, you’re approaching 50 and nothing turned out like you thought it would. Time…use it wisely, my friends, one never knows when that life long clock is going to stop.

DollHouse

While putting this scene together, there was a song going through my head and every time I look at this picture I still hear it. So, here ya go, I’m sharing my ear worm with you all. I’ll even give you the lyrics! *giggles & sings*

Melanie Martinez – Dollhouse

Hey girl, open the walls, play with your dolls
We’ll be a perfect family
When you walk away, it’s when we really play
You don’t hear me when I say,
Mom, please wake up
Dad’s with a slut, and your son is smoking cannabis
No one never listens, this wallpaper glistens
Don’t let them see what goes down in the kitchen
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)
Hey girl, look at my mom, she’s got it going on
Ha, you’re blinded by her jewelry
When you turn your back she pulls out a flask
And forgets his infidelity
Uh-oh, she’s coming to the attic, plastic
Go back to being plastic
No one never listens, this wallpaper glistens
One day they’ll see what goes down in the kitchen
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)
Hey girl (hey girl, hey girl, hey girl, hey girl)
Hey girl, open your walls, play with your dolls
We’ll be a perfect family
Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains
Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won’t you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we’re perfect
Please don’t let them look through the curtains

Oh Deer

When I was putting this scene together, I couldn’t help but get lost as I was thrown down memory lane. Earlier this year, I lost my aunt. I shouldn’t say I lost her, because to be honest, I didn’t really like her. My mom lost her sister. My mom was and still is quite heartbroken. While I didn’t like my aunt very much, there were things I liked about her. I loved visiting her for a few days at a time, because she lived on a mountain in the hills of West Virginia. I know, I know, but seriously, its a beautiful state, especially in the fall when the leaves are so vibrant. I loved being so enveloped in mother nature. There were deer that would come into her yard every night as the sun was going down and you never knew when you’d see a bear lurking about looking for apples. My aunt was especially gullible and I even had her hunting ghost orbs in the Catholic cemetery at the bottom of the mountain once. *laughs* Her home was rustic and so far removed from modern society to include dial up internet as it was all she could get where she lived.
I didn’t agree with her views on life, religion, or politics. I didn’t think she was a very nice person, but there we managed to share some funny moments. Like the time we mouthed words to each other and made my mother think she was going deaf. She fought hard the last few years of her life and finally couldn’t fight anymore. I understood that and I admired her decision to tell her family she was done fighting. To say goodbye and let her go. I know that took a lot of courage for her, considering how close she was to her children and how much she loved her husband. I dedicate this post to her, even though she has never approved of me, my lifestyle, my beliefs, etc. *laughs*

Red Witch

There were rumors about the red witch, called that because she always wore red clothing. There were no witnesses to speak of her leaving her home and people only entered her shop after dark in desperation. It’s been said that she can tell fortunes, conjure the dead, and even cast spells. Those that visit refuse to speak of their visits.

How do you know when to seek the help of the Red Witch? Word has it, she’ll come to you in your dreams.

Being Grateful

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~ Melody Beattie

Once upon a time I kept a gratitude journal to remind myself of things I had to be grateful for every single day. It’s funny how something so simple can change your perspective on everything. At first, I would do this every morning, to ensure a good attitude for the day. After a while, I notice that by the end of the day, I still had complaints. I had physical pain and I do every single day. Something might go wrong, a bad day at work…a bad hair day…cat got sick…fought with my mom, etc. Eventually, I decided it was better for me to write in my gratitude journal at the end of the day, because it made the bad things not so bad. So, that bad day at work? I was grateful to have a job. That bad hair day? Thank goodness it was long enough to pull up. My cat threw up? Well, at least it was nothing serious. I love my cat. Fought with my mom? I’m so glad to still have her in my life. There will always be things to bring us down, but we will also have things to be grateful for, too. If you are reading this, it means you have internet and that’s a luxury, believe it or not. Lots of people don’t even have a home, much less the internet. So, let’s all find some gratitude in our lives and change our perspective on the bad things in our lives. ♥
