I’ve been having so much fun in Second Life lately. I kinda dropped the ball a bit on blogging, but it has been nice to take a break from the daily grind of what is usually my SL. I moved to the Blake Sea a couple of months ago. I wasn’t expecting much from it, but it was a nice area and close to some friends. I did think it was neat that they could just drive their boats right over to my house and I loved seeing the other boats that passed my house. Saturday night, a bunch of my Burrow Co. friends were out yachting the Blake Sea and pulled up to my house. It was so awesome! They literally delivered a party to my door! We hung out and fished and laughed in ways I haven’t laughed in a very long time. It was great! Living on the Blake has given me a huge sense of community that I’ve not felt in a very long time. Mind you, there are places I can go and feel that sense of community, like Burrow Co, but having it at home…THAT’s something I haven’t felt in well over a year…year and a half at least. I had no idea how much I missed it. I’ve been in SL approximately 15yrs and this just goes to show, that if you’re bored in Second Life, this is not the place for you. There is so much to explore and experience on the grid that it will never cease to amaze me. So, for those looking for a new experience, go explore the grid…check out places you may have heard about, but thought they didn’t interest you. They just might surprise you, cuz I knew about the Blake ages ago and never thought I’d find myself loving it the way that I do.

Distant, everything is scattered When your mind is shattered and torn apart In an instant, I can be indifferent The blame is always shifted from the start Leafless treetops in the snow Views of death and bitter cold But the darker the weather, the better the man You can take all you want, but not who I am But the darker the weather, the better the man You can take all you want, but not who I am You can’t have my- Sun shines through an open window Close the curtains real slow to hide the light But in time, maybe I can change it We’ll find someone who feels the same as me You broke me down and stole my soul Left me vacant and all alone
Your eyes, so crisp, so green Sour apple baby, but you taste so sweet You got hips like Jagger and two left feet And I wonder if you’d like to meet Your voice is velvet through a telephone You can come to mine, but both my roommates are home Think I know a bar where they would leave us alone And I wonder if you’d take it slow Oh, we’re dancin’ in my livin’ room And up come my fists And I say I’m only playing, but The truth is this That I’ve never seen a mouth that I would kill to kiss And I’m terrified, but I can’t resist And I said Beautiful stranger, here you are in my arms and I know That beautiful strangers only come along to do me wrong And I hope Beautiful stranger, here you are in my arms But I think it’s finally, finally, finally, finally, finally safe For me to fall
So I never really knew you God, I really tried to Blindsided, addicted Felt we could really do this But really I was foolish Hindsight, it’s obvious Talking with my lawyer She said, “Where’d you find this guy?” I said, young people fall in love With the wrong people sometimes Some mistakes get made That’s alright, that’s okay You can think that you’re in love When you’re really just in pain Some mistakes get made That’s alright, that’s okay In the end it’s better for me That’s the moral of the story, babe

So, this picture took me on a wild ride. I knew as soon as I saw this big beautiful beast what kind of photo I wanted to take. I knew exactly where. What I didn’t know was what song I’d put with it or what I would write about. I could write about how beautiful the sim is at Burrow Co. I could write about how awesome the pets at Rezz Room are, but I feel like I’ve done both of those things in the past. After taking the picture, I was thinking, “Isn’t there a song about a dog day afternoon?” So, off to YouTube, I went. What I discovered is that no, its not a song, its a movie! It’s an Al Pacino movie! AND I’ve never seen it! Then I realized how old the movie was and took a moment to mourn my youth. That movie is almost 50yrs old. *sighs* Turns out, its based on a true story, too. My afternoon was quickly filled with Al Pacino and learning about the true story. The movie was really good, of course. However, that movie has absolutely nothing to do with my photo. So, here we have it…another post with no song. *gasps* I know, y’all gonna have to start reading again if this continues! *laughs* p.s. I added a trailer link for you, in case you wanted to know about the movie.

No lyrics today, I know, shocking. It’s ok, I’m sure they’ll be back in the next post. But today, I want to tell you about some things! First off, I want to tell you about this badass car! I’m obsessed with all the details. The hood opens, the trunk opens, as well as the doors. However, the interior is incredibly detailed. You have to see it for yourself and you really do want to check this out. If you’ve ever wanted a car in SL, I highly recommend you check out 777 Motors.
The next thing I want to tell you about is the sim! It’s called London for Ara and was done as a gift by my SL nephew, Trouble Dethly. He did this for his girlfriend/partner/wife…whatever they are…lol. What I know is that both of them are incredibly talented people and both have hearts of gold. He’s been kind enough to open the sim to the public, so check it out while you can. I’ve no idea how long he intends to keep it that way, but its a beautiful London setting with stores and parks and so much more. So, go buy a car, go shopping, and go exploring. Now you have weekend plans. You’re welcome.

Everything I ever knew came from you Everything I wanna be, that’s in me That comes from me Open up your fist and let me out I was made to run around And let me feel the air beneath my feet Let me go And I know not everybody gets a new life And I know not everybody gets to start over again But I do know what I’m doing with my new life I’ll build it up, break it down, build it up Build it up, break it down Build it up, break it down You can fly away too, that’s on you But don’t tell me what I cannot do I can tie on my shoes and put on my coat I’m living a history, the one that I wrote

Lately, I’ve just been going through the motions of putting one foot in front of another. I’m faking it until I make it, you could say. This year has taken quite a toll on me, as it has most of us. I’ve counted my blessings and I promise I am grateful. However, some days putting on that happy face is a huge struggle. The holidays haven’t really helped much. Fortunately, that’s almost over for a while. I’m holding on to the hope that 2021 is a better year. I want to say that it has to be, but I think that this year has proven…repeatedly…that it can always get worse.
