No Place For You

It was the end of summer and she had decided to take a walk down to the Charcuterie for some of Peter’s famous sausages. They would be perfect with the apples she had picked that morning. As she walked along the dirt road she came across the most adorable little piglet, she scooped him up just as she approached Peter’s place. The little pig was so cute as she squealed in her face.
She smiled lovingly at her new pet, “I shall call you Wilbur, but you have to promise not to bring home any friends named Charlotte!” As she approached the door for Peter’s it dawned on her that she should take her new pet home first, “This is no place for you, Wilbur! No place at all!”

this is not the place for you

You Lookin’ At Me Lookin’ At You

I took a step away from writing about myself and have been writing more fictional tidbits and short short stories to accompany my photos. I have to admit it has been a lot of fun. However, there will be times like now, that a song just fits how I feel about the picture more than anything else. Today is one of those days. So, I’ll give you the YouTube link and the lyrics. Its up to you where to go from here. Either way, I wish you love & laughter, seems we could all use some of that, right?

Ozzy Osbourne You Lookin’ At Me Lookin’ At You

Pictures building in my head
Nothing done and nothing said
Talking to me with your eyes
What they say is no surprise
Things are so much different now
But nothing lasts forever

You, looking at me, looking at you
I wanna talk to you
You, looking at me, looking at you

Carry on from day to day
Even when we touch it seems miles away
I know you know I know too
Is it me or is it you?
Things are so much different now
But nothing lasts forever

I had a dream that we were through
I can’t imagine nights without you, yeah
Looks and fixes can we repair
Talking good and we just stare
Waste of love is waste of life
Save our love from the final knife
Things would be so different then
Our love would last forever

well now

Beautiful Love

Not just on vacation like now, but no matter where they were or what she wore, he always made her feel beautiful. Today he made her feel especially beautiful when they stopped to admire this Fortress door by saying to her, “The only thing that could make this more beautiful is you posing in front of it, my love.”
She blushed and did as he suggested. She looked at him with wonder in her eyes.
“What is it?” he asked.
“You,” she said, “you make me feel things I never felt before. You make me believe in myself in ways I never thought possible and it frightens me.”
“Don’t be scared, Darling. Embrace the light that is within you. See you reflection in my eyes and you will see what I see,” he snapped the picture then stepped forward, his gaze locked on hers, “You’ll see that you are truly beautiful.”
Looking into his eyes, she saw love…beautiful love.

Get My Groove Back

Her divorce was final and she had treated herself to a tropical vacation. She’s read all about how Stella got her groove back by going to Jamaica, now she was ready for an adventure of her own. Having left only the minimal contact information with a trusted friend at home that would only call her if someone died, she stepped out on her own to take a holiday that was simply a break from her life.
It was her first day here and she wanted to just take in the view from the comfort of her tiny balcony. This was a private resort that offered all the amenities she needed and now…well…there was some very pretty eye candy walking around the pool. Oh my, she thought, maybe this is how I’ll get my groove back.

I spy with my little eye

Waiting Game

Alright, so this is going to be another lyrics post and I’m going to add a little something at the end. Feel free to listen, read along, or skip to the details. *winks* You know I’ll never know.

BANKS – Waiting Game

I’m thinking it over
The way you make me feel all sexy but it’s causing me shame
I wanna lean on your shoulder
I wish I was in love but I don’t wanna cause any pain
And if I’m feeling like I’m evil, we’ve got nothing to gain

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

Baby I’m thinking it over
What if the way we started made it something cursed from the start
What if it only gets colder
Would you still wrap me up and tell me that you think this was smart
Cause lately I’ve been scared of even thinking ’bout where we are

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

need you now

I played this song for Josh while I was preparing this post and he just wrapped me in his arms and whispered, “It was smart.”
I melted as last night was our 7 month anniversary. For some that doesn’t seem like a long time, for others its an eternity. For me, its something pretty special, because I honestly thought I had a four month expiration date as the last 3 people I dated in SL never stuck around longer than 4 months, regardless of who decided to end it. So, to Josh, I have this to say, “If your love is a waiting game…I’ll wait.”♥

Steampunk

“Steampunk is…a joyous fantasy of the past, allowing us to revel in a nostalgia for what never was. It is a literary playground for adventure, spectacle, drama, escapism and exploration. But most of all it is fun!”
George Mann

I love this description of Steampunk, because it suits us all so well in Second Life, too, doesn’t it? This is a virtual playground full of adventures, exploration, plenty of spectacles, and God knows we’ve got more than our fair share of drama. I think for most of us its a form of escapism, as well as a creative outlet. I don’t have a lot of experience with Steampunk, so I won’t even pretend to know anything about it other than it looks super cool! Its fun to dress up and decorate with various steampunk and industrial styles in SL. I’ve gathered quite a collection over the years and have rarely displayed any of it outside of my home (which I am constantly changing), but when I saw this corset from Elegance Boutique, a steampunk scene immediately began unfolding in my head and this is the result.

steampunk_011

I’ve listed everything in the photos and its quite a list. Just know that it was the corset that sent my mind whirling into the Eye of the Storm that is now my little world of Steampunk. As there are soooo many color options available, just imagine what it will inspire you to do. *winks*
