Earth, teach me…

Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life. Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall. Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone. Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring. ~William Alexander

Play With Your Food

When we were babies our parents pretend our food was on a train, a plane, a roller coaster, whatever thing they found amusing enough to trick us into eating liquid peas and other disgusting mush, right? Then as we learned to use utensils for ourselves, we tried to construct mountains with mashed potatoes and river of gravy, and dog treats from some of the yuckiest vegetables and we were told, “DON’T PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD!” Now we’re adults and we can do whatever we want. Plus there are all these bizarre cooking shows and gourmet meals out there that are definitely nothing like the food we grew up with. The chefs have definitely had a field day creating some pretty interesting dishes. I say its time we rise up and say it once and for all, “I DO WHAT I WANT!” So, if you want to make a french fry mustache or walrus tusks but shoving a few fries up your nose…do it! Play with your food…have fun with it. Life throws us enough crap to take seriously. I say if you wanna play with your food, then do it!
Grace and I are all over the place and having checked in with our road trip in quite some time, but as you can see from this photo…we’re still up to no good. We’re having a blast and yes, we might have been arrested a few times…so if you’re wondering why there’s been no updates…*whistles innocently*…don’t tell her I told you, but it really was all Grace’s idea. *nods & giggles*

Selfies

I’m often quite grateful that smartphones were not a thing when I was a teenager or in my 20s. As stupid as I was in my 20s, LAWD, I can’t even think about too much without blushing. Selfies became such a big deal, they had to introduce the word into the dictionary. The best selfies will always be the ones where we’re drunk, feeling good, and thinking we’re cute when we’re actually a hot damn mess. I personally take very few selfies. I prefer to take pictures of things I find interesting or beautiful.

Take Your Time

Why is everyone in such a hurry these days? I’m referring to SL relationships. We’ve all seen the people that jump in and out of relationships. Partnered to someone new every other week or month, then complain about why their relationships didn’t work. Seems like an awful lot of unnecessary drama and hurt feelings to me. I used to think I had a four month expiration date, because my average SL relationship was only lasting four months, but I didn’t rush into any of them. The last one I had, we dated quietly for months before telling anyone, much less becoming official. Now, I’ve been single for over 3 months and I simply can’t imagine rushing into anything with any of the men I’ve met. It can take weeks for me to even figure out whether or not I want to have sex with someone. Granted there are those that you know immediately that sex is definitely on the table, but in those instances I’m not expecting it to be anything but casual. I’m not an idiot. Sex does not equal love or even slove as my friend, Poppy, puts it. (I tend to agree with her on that.) I dunno, I guess we all have our pace. It just seems to me if you take your time and really get to know someone first, you might save yourself some heartache. Then again, what do I know….368 day of what I thought was magic turned out to be really disposable and I was easily replaced in no time at all. *shrugs* So, I have no idea who the hell I think I am giving relationship advice, but that’s what’s on my mind today. So, that’s what you get.

Caged

There’s a poem by Maya Angelou, Caged Bird. Its one of those poems that sat on my chest like a 20lb cat. It weighed so heavily on my heart that is almost felt as though I were being crushed. I love the contrast of the free bird versus the caged bird. The free bird hasn’t the worries or restrictions of the caged bird. Yet, the caged bird chooses to sing anyway. The caged bird sings of hope, dreams, and fantasies. It is those songs that keeps the caged bird moving forward in its limited space. While the free bird might sing, I imagine the songs are hollow and not nearly as beautiful as the “fearful trill.”
Obviously the poem is not literally about birds. Its symbolism in its purest form really. Yet, it still makes me think. It takes my mind in so many directions. Not just the original meaning, but about each of us as individuals. How often do we cage ourselves? And for what reason? I spend more than 50% of my day in my bedroom, as my computer is in here, my smart tv, my bed…all my favorite comforts of home. Why? Though I sit in front of a window, there is nothing keeping me locked in here. So, why don’t I go outside more? Granted, I don’t like the people around here too much, but no one is forcing me to speak to anyone when I leave my house. I’ve even been to jail and I remember how badly I craved the fresh air, a natural breeze. How I longed to hear the rustling of leaves and the songs of birds….even the laughter of those little demon spawns people call children. *grins*
I’ve gotten too comfortable in my little cage of comforts. I’ve become complacent and in most 12 step programs there’s a common saying about complacency being a red light indicator. In other words, when we become too comfortable…too complacent in our lives, we are setting ourselves up for bad decision making and that’s never been more true in my life. I’ve made some very poor decisions in the last few months. Acting out (mostly in SL) in ways that I never have before and its time for me to stop. I’ve already reduced my blogging load by focusing more on fashion and less on home decor. Yet, I still find myself sitting at this desk focused far more on my blog than on my real life.
I am not a religious person by a long shot, but Easter is about Christ being reborn, right? Well, I think I’ll borrow a page from the Bible and use Easter as a form of rebirth of my own. I’m going to cut back a bit more on the blog and I’m going to be leaving my house for five days on Easter weekend. I’m going to see my darling Nikole. This will be the second time we’ve met in real life, but it’ll be my first time visiting her at her house. I’m super excited about the trip and I’m about to embrace some really positive changes in my life. I will no longer be caged by my own hands.

Mood swings and Strawberry Jam!

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you can imagine the title of this blog is a result of the Dangerous Proposition blog that I did last week. I have been trying to do the suggestions in the order that they came in, but with all the pink in this photo…well, I thought it sorta fit the topic.  Grace things she’s going to stump me with this little mix of terms, but oddly enough this instantly made me think of a comfort food. As women, we all know that comfort foods are very important during PMS which produces more mood swings than a 90 yr old bi-polar senile homeless woman. So, I’m going to share a the simplest little recipe for one of the most delicious comfort foods and most of us have these ingredients in our kitchens at any given time. All you need is Ritz crackers, cream cheese, and strawberry jam/preserves/jelly. Three simple ingredients that will change your life! You just put a smidge of cream cheese on the cracker, top it off with a small dollop of jam. Pop that in your mouth and you’ll think you’ve just had a cheesecake bite! I’m telling you, it is amazing. I suggest you just make a little plate of about 5 or 6 of these, because it is way too easy to get carried away eating these right there in the kitchen as you make them.
So, there you have it…mood swings and strawberry jam are actually quite compatible. Feel free to challenge me with more topics. I still have a few more from the original posts, but I have to admit I am loving the challenge…so bring it on!!!
