Furry Knees

How differently would you behave if you knew your every single moved was being observed? I’m talking about every move…every breath…every sneeze…even your trips to the bathroom….your shower…your private time…when you sleep. I just finished watching The Circle with Tom Hanks and Emma Watson. The entire concept of privacy and social media is explored in a really interesting way. It got me thinking…about the smallest of things…like whether or not my feet look dry. Would I tell say that pants are overrated and keep them off as I move freely about my own home? Imagine absolutely no privacy ever. Not that someone IS always watching, but they could be and you’ve no way of knowing unless you’re interacting on social media. Just thinking about this made me push my hair behind my eyes and cross my bare legs under my desk.
Of course, the squirrels distracted me and I quickly forgot that I was acting as if…I think there’s probably a few things I’d do different, I’m sure, but I think we’d probably just get a lot more real with one another. No, I didn’t shave my legs today…yesterday either. I know! *giggles* Of course, I will now, cuz everyone is gonna ask and we all know that Tracy Redangel is the one with the furry knees.

Hell to Pay

So, when you have gorgeous friends and you’re a blogger, you tend to want to  show them off. For this post, my friend, Dusty was kind enough to sit pensively on this loveseat while I talked his ear off and shot pictures.  He’s quite the photographer himself, so click his name and check him out. Wishing you all a great weekend. ♥

Bartholomew The Silent Comedy

Oh my god please help me knee deep in the river trying to get clean
He says wash your hands get out the stains
But you best believe boy there’s hell to pay yeah you best believe boy there’s hell to pay
Come on

Oh my God please help me waist deep in the river can you hear my plea
He says son you come like a begger in the streets
You might make it boy but by the skin of your teeth
You might make it boy but by the skin of your teeth, sayin’

I rambled with the worst of them
Fell in love with a harlequin
Saw the darkest hearts of men
And I saw myself staring back again and I saw myself staring back again

Oh my God please help me neck deep in the river screaming for relief!
He says it’s mine to give but it’s yours to choose
You gonna sink or swim you gonna learn the truth no matter what you do your gonna learn the truth saying

Ate the bread that once was stones
Fell from a cliff never broke a bone
Bowed down to get the kings overthrown
Now I’m all alone and the fires grows and I’m all alone and the fires grows

Swing sweet charity take what’s left of me
A new beginning or is this the end
Swing sweet Seraphim take me back again or watch me make the messes of men

Best You Believe
But you best believe, boy, there’s hell to pay.

Clear The Haze

I don’t even remember taking this picture or editing it. I know I took it last week…day one of being sick, I believe. As, today is Day 7 of the flu, I have to say this is the best I’ve felt in a week. I’m still not back to myself yet, I’m certainly glad to be on the mend.  What I can tell you about the last seven days is that they’ve been a complete blur. I remember talking on skype to a friend of mine and trying to explain that each day had many days inside it. That made complete sense to me at the time and sadly, I am still sick enough to get exactly what I was trying to say. Well, yes, I have been heavily medicated and you’d think that would have made it a bit more enjoyable, but no. The best part was being asleep. I got lots of sleep and the waking moments were often surreal. This morning has been a complete whirlwind already…wish this lil kitten luck as I clear the haze of this past week and get caught up.♥

Guitar Man

As soon as I saw this pose from Foxcity, I knew immediately this would be a song post, because what else could it be, an idea born in Satomi’s head began one of those truly transcendent moments. Once again, music says it better than I ever could.  Being a lover or poetry, I often find myself falling in love with the lyrics of a song, sometimes more than the melody. This is one of those songs, that lifts me up and takes me on a little journey back in time….a montage of fading memories…joyous times…broken moments…and escape.

Bread – Guitar Man

Who draws the crowd and plays so loud, baby, it’s the guitar man
Who’s gonna steal the show, you know, baby, it’s the guitar man
He can make you love, he can make you cry
He will bring you down and he’ll get you high
Somethin’ keeps him goin’ miles and miles a day
To find another place to play

Night after night, who treats you right, baby, it’s the guitar man
Who’s on the radio, you go and listen to the guitar man
Then he comes to town and you see his face
And you think you might like to take his place
Somethin’ keeps him driftin’ miles and miles away
Searching for the songs to play

Then you listen to the music and you like to sing along
You want to get the meaning out of each and every song
Then you find yourself a message and some words to call your own and take ’em home

He can make you love, he can get you high
He will bring you down, then he’ll make, make you cry
Somethin’ keeps him movin’, but no one seems to know
What it is that makes him go

Then the lights begin to flicker and the sound is getting dim
The voice begins to falter and the crowds are getting thin
But he never seems to notice, he’s just got to find another place to play

Fade away
Got to play
Fade away
Got to play

On the Wings of Paper Birds

As a form of self-defense, I’ve developed a rather painful habit. I have a tendency to date people that will rip my heart into pieces. I go into these relationships knowing almost exactly how its going to end. I know they are not healthy and I know its going to hurt in the end. Yet, here’s the thing. These relationships are safe. I realize that sounds strange, but there’s no risk involved. I know going in that its going to end and its going to hurt. However, knowing THAT allows me to be prepared. I even have a nice little post break up ritual. My own little grieving process, if you will.

The good guy finishes last, because he’s too risky. The good guy scares the shit out of me. I might actually begin to trust a good guy and that leaves me far too vulnerable. And THAT is a risk I’m not willing to take. Why? Because every single time I’ve let myself believe in something good it has gotten ripped out from under me. Now I know to let hope fly away on the wings of paper birds, because all it’s gonna take is one good rain to wash it all away.

I believe, I believe in a line so thin
There’s a light, there’s a light and it pulls me in
Going down, going down ’til I chip my chin
Take my head in your hands, pop it with a pin

Snake Charmer

I think we all are pretty familiar with the story about the girl and the snake, right? Or at least some version of it. Sometimes she finds him on a sidewalk, sometimes its a little boy, sometimes it an adult. The gist is always the same. Just in case, I’ve provided a commonly found internet version below. The moral of the story is was tickles me, because most of us will still pick up that damn snake believing that somehow overnight we’ve become a snake charmer and we get bit every single time. I was talking to a close friend of mine the other day and we were talking about life lessons we learned as children. My friend learned by watching family members and being smart enough to figure out who was making the right choices and who was making the wrong choices. Then there’s me…I have had to learn most of my lessons the hardest way possible. I feel like I need some kind of implant to remind me, “Don’t touch the snake!”

Girl and The Snake
A young girl walking along a mountain path to her grandmother’s house heard a rustle at her feet. Looking down, she saw a snake, but before she could react, the snake spoke to her. 
“I am about to die,” he said. “It’s too cold for me up here, and I am freezing. There is no food in these mountains, and I am starving. Please put me under your coat and take me with you.”

“No,” the girl replied. “I know your kind. You are a rattlesnake. And if I pick you up, you will bite me and your bite is poisonous.”
“No, no,” the snake said. “If you help me, you will be my best friend. I will treat you differently.”
The young girl sat down on a rock for a moment to rest and think things over. She looked at the beautiful markings on the snake and she had to admit he was the most beautiful snake she had ever seen. Suddenly, she said, “I believe you. I will save you. All living things deserve to be treated with kindness.”
She then reached over, put the snake gently under her coat and continued toward her grandmother’s house. Within a moment, she felt a sharp pain in her side. The snake had bitten her!
“How could you do this to me?” she cried. “You promised that you would not bite me, and I trusted you!”
“You knew what I was when you picked me up,” he hissed as he slithered away.

Enjoy Yourself

There seems to be an awful lot of talk on Facebook in the SL blogger circles about the do this and the don’t do that. I honestly feel like somethings are basic blogger common sense, but at the end of the day there is only one real answer to the how to blog question. ANY WAY YOU WANT! I joke around a lot saying, “I do what I want.” Yet, the statement is truer than most would believe. I’ve heard people say, “Don’t use bad language in your blog. Its not professional.” Fuck that, its my blog and I’ll damn well write whatever I want. Now, I’m fully aware that some designers would not like to sponsor a blogger like me. That’s fine. I completely understand. So, then the decision falls on me as to which is more important….being true to myself or getting sponsors? For me, the answer is simple. I did not begin blogging with the hopes of obtaining free stuff. I’ve never catered my blog to appeal to a certain audience. My regular readers (all five of them) will tell you that when you click on my blog link there’s absolutely no telling what you will find. However, one thing is for sure. You WILL find links to the items, poses, and places I’ve blogged if at all possible.
I’ve heard that posting lyrics and links to a song is lazy. Ok, well, go write a book for each of your blog posts and leave me to mine. Because on the other side of that coin, I’ve had people thank me for introducing them to music or lyrics they weren’t familiar with before. I’ve heard people say that writing anything is a waste of time. Ah, but guess what? I don’t really write for others as much as I write for myself. You see, I’m easily amused and I also know that ranting can often be good for soul. So, whether I write or share a poem, share a song, write a story, talk about my life, or rant about something that’s been on my mind. I do it for me, first and foremost. I will admit that it sends me over the moon with glee when someone tells me that they enjoyed something in my blog.
So, to my fellow bloggers out there worrying about the “rules of blogging,” remember that the very first rule and really the only one that matters is: Enjoy yourself.

I Don’t Need Your Love

It seems as if I’ve spent the bulk of my life letting go of people, places, and things. I’ve got the grieving process down so well, I practically do it on auto-pilot. I learned at an early age not to count on anything to last forever. If there’s one person in this world that knows how truly temporary everything is…it’s me. I stumbled across the song and I swear I’m not high, but I felt myself being lifted up like a feather in the wind right before a rain storm. Drifting through the air with all the people, places, and things I’ve let go….until the rain comes down and washes them all away. I can look back and smile, because there are some mighty good memories there….it wasn’t all bad. I’ve got very few regrets.

Stealth – I Don’t Need Your Love

I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
My time is up
There’s no more lines to read
It’s too much
There’s no more room to breathe
I know it’s tough
But there’s no more lies to live
I’ve done enough
Now it’s time to leave

This has run its course
I don’t know you, and you don’t seem to first
Time we both let this fade to dust
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine

I must to admit, I felt it before worse
So this is it, you must’ve foreseen the worst
We have tried our best, you don’t love me, and I my heart’s already left
It’s time we call the latest down to rest
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine

It always hurt when the rain is bringing in to the summer
It’s kinda hard to watch the night’s bringing into the day
It always hurts when we’re moving from one to another
If you’re not moving here in the dark, you will stay
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine

I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine
I don’t need your love, and I don’t want to waste your time
I don’t need your love, girl, you don’t need mine

RED FLAG!!

Alright, let’s talk. Ladies, I’m talking to you and myself. We’ve got to stop taking shit off these fuckers! Pay attention to the red flags! Ya know what? No, I’m not talking just to the ladies….guys, you need to listen up, too! Those red flags? Each new person you meet in SL, use the notes page of their profile, only you can see what you write there. Make a list of those red flags….every single one. Don’t let yourself forget them. Why? Because red flags are a big ass sign telling you to be careful and the more there are…well, run, dumbass! Don’t think you are going to be the one to change them or fix them. You won’t. Especially not in SL. Let’s face it, this is the land of broken souls. Let me list a few like I did with the Go Fuck Thyself post. These things apply to friendships & romantic relationships. Let’s just avoid the toxicity right up front, shall we?
Does s/he disrespect you by making overt sexual comments during your first conversation? RED FLAG!
S/He start IMs with “I’m bored.” RED FLAG!
His profile is full of all his female friends with no shout outs to a single guy? RED FLAG!
Her profile is full of all her male friends with no shout outs to any girls? RED FLAG!
Blank profiles! RED FLAG!
Immediately starts telling you that you need to change anything…from your avatar to your personality. RED FLAG!
Constantly crashes whenever the conversation gets serious. RED FLAG!
Always telling you how perfect you are? No one is perfect. They need to love you AND your flaws. Perfection is impossible and pedestals weren’t designed for two. RED FLAG!
Constantly needing to touch you, hold you too close, know your every move? Clingy much? RED FLAG!
Trying to rush you into a relationship? RED FLAG!
Do they try to isolate you? Keep you from your friends or not interested in meeting your friends? RED FLAG!
Not trying to introduce you to their friends? Claim they don’t really have any? RED FLAG!
Describe ALL of their exes as crazy? Well, you’re crazy if you don’t see this…RED FLAG!
Moody as fuck? Mean as hell one day, charming the next, sullen a day later? RED FLAG!
Super secretive about little stuff? Imagine how they are with big things. RED FLAG!
Sending you on so many guilt trips that you’re acquiring frequent flyer miles? RED FLAG!
They make you feel stupid, insult your intelligence, point out what you don’t know, mock your ideas, convinced they can change your mind? Gaslight much? RED FLAG!
Wants to keep your relationship a secret? RED FLAG!

I’m sorry to break it to you, but if you choose to ignore these red flags…well, prepare for some heart ache. I mean, maybe you’re not that emotionally invested…maybe these red flags won’t apply to you. Perhaps you have some arrangement that works for you and a friend, like FWB. I’m just saying if you want something serious with someone…these are just a few things to watch out for. In the meantime, hang in there, cuz we can do bad all by ourselves.
