Farewell, Summer

It would seem that while spring came early in my area, summer arrived on time. Now it seems that summer might be leaving on time, as well. This is highly unusual for where I live. August and September seem to be two of the hottest months of the year. Don’t get me wrong. July and…

Done

She’d finally had enough of his crap. She would never be good enough. No one would. He set her up to fail, time after time. “Dress sexy,” he said, “I want to show you off.” So, she dug out the slinkiest dress she owned. “You look like a whore! Go change!” he yelled, “And hurry…

The Edge

Its a music blog. Why? Because the world makes me sad and the lyrics to this song have really been weighing heavy on my mind lately. So, I’ll provide you with the link and this time, just a few of the lyrics. You can look up the rest if you feel so inclined. I don’t…

Wheels

She had been skating since she was in the first grade. She could skate before she even learned how to ride a bike. There was something so free about having wheels under her feet, almost as if she could fly. When she skated she felt free. As a kid she would lose herself in the…

The Ugliest Thing I Could Find

So, the tie dye pattern on this Migle dress from United Colors reminded me of one of my favorite shirts when I was about 18. There’s actually a funny story about that shirt. My parents got divorced when I was 15, for the first year my mom cried almost every night. After that she went…

Lost on the Dock

When I shot this photo my main objective was to show off some more of the amazing creations you’ll find at the Vintage Fair and various other events across the grid. Okay, done. Then I though about what to write and I spent over an hour on YouTube looking for the perfect song, but nothing…

Unlike Any Other

I was thinking about the mushy post I wrote the other day and how I said his love is unlike any I’ve ever known. I got to thinking about how often people say that about current relationships. I thought about how overused the phrase is and quite honestly, I got annoyed with myself for using…

Talk Derby to Me

Talk Derby to Me Once upon a time…like a decade plus ago, I was involved with the local roller derby girls in my real life. Oh don’t be daft, my ass was not a derby girl. Let me explain. I was editor of my college newspaper, so I was always on the hunt for a…

Martini, Dear?

In a previous post, Take the Train Somewhere, I mentioned that I used to fantasize about a life living near or in a big city. I dreamed of a glamour lifestyle. I watched women prepare martinis for their husbands and their friends. Much like the train, I imagined that one day I would stand at…

Hold Your Head Up

When people upset you and you want to lash out in public forums or on social media, think twice. I say this for myself as much as for anyone else. Its always best to take a minute and think about what you’re about to say or do…what are the possible ramifications? What is your motive? What…

Have Some Fun

Anyone that’s friends with me on Facebook could know what sort of hijinx I got into last night. To be honest, circumstances in RL are a bit peculiar for me at the moment. So, I most certainly did wake & bake. Its going to be a relaxed, fun day for me, because this afternoon I’ll…

Where You Should Be

Yesterday when I got ready to take this picture Linden Lab started their restarts and I was quickly on the run. Fortunately that 300 second warning that jars my screen gave me enough time to throw on a dress and head for a safe place. My usual spot got the jolt of a restart only…
