“I know if I can find my own way back
There’s a life I always knew but never had
I’m tired of fighting things that I can’t change
Letting me go so I can finally find my place”
Sigma & Rita Ora – Coming Home

home2

Yesterday, I wrote about having the ground beneath our feet to catch us when we fall, but I didn’t mean that in such a literal sense. That ground is my foundation. My circle of friends…my family…my home…that place that I can always go back to no matter what happens to me on this grand adventure of a life. When I’m tired and beat down, I can go home and know that I am safe…I am grounded…and there is no other place quite like it. To my home…my people…I love each of you and I can’t thank you enough. I might be flying high and free at the moment, but I haven’t forgotten that you all are there and without you I wouldn’t be here now. I love you all so much. Part of me wants to list you all, but you know my squirrelly little memory will leave someone out, so I’ll do some general shouts out that you’ll hopefully understand…Home really is where the heart is.

To my Cunts…I love you guys so freaking much and how you teach me to throw caution to the wind and say with glory, “McFUCKIT!” ♥
To my Lockjaw Family…my God, what a delightful group of amazing and talented misfits! You all rock! Don’t any of you forget that!♥
Need a better name for the Stoner’s group…but they know who they are…I hope. I love you bitches so damn much. Never stop being fabulous, please. We have all been through so much this past year, lets rule the world this year!♥
To all my friends, listed in a group or not…to the creators that support me, believe in me…you are all my home and I appreciate you more than you know. Thank you.

Everything is Changing

“Everything is changing,
And I’ve been here for too long
Going through the same things
I’ve been hurting too long,
Got to move on
Say I-I-I-I can’t do this anymore
If everything is changing
And I know, yeah, you gotta let go”
Sigma ft Paloma Faith – Changing

dorothy phedora2

Life is full of change. Every single day something impacts us to alter the course of our day, our life…every little thing that happens to us impacts us on some level. Sometimes it takes us a while to figure out what is working and what isn’t. From there, we make conscious decisions to change. This is life, right? Even when the changes swirl around us in a way that we feel we’ve lost all control, we still have the ground beneath our feet. If we crumple…if we fall…the ground is there to catch us. Its all just a matter of how far we fall and how hard, isn’t it?

Collabor88 has returned and delivered us with some “lazy & chill” themed items that are simply breathtaking. While a lot of people in SL don’t understand the concept of being comfortable in a virtual world, I do and I for one want nothing more than to be lazy & chill, in both my worlds. Its not always an options, but at least in SL..not only can I look lazy & chill, but I can look fierce while doing it. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been that cute girl next door that looks adorable in her chillaxing clothes…I tend to look more like a homeless person. *laughs* While that is the theme, there’s nothing stopping you from grabbing some amazing threads and shoes to create you own look that isn’t lazy & chill at all. As soon as I saw the Andrea Jumpsuit from CandyDoll, I knew I had to have it and the Dorothy boots from Phedora are a perfect match, as both allow color options for the bow. To help you blend your look into a more cohesive one. I’m wishing you all a happy month of shopping and watch here for tons more goodies coming you way from across the grid.  ♥

Bad Moon Rising

“I see a bad moon a-rising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin’
I see bad times today”
Creedence Clearwater Revival Bad Moon Rising

bad-moon-rising1

Its no secret that I’m from the South and down here we’ve got a lot of superstitions. I’m not a superstitious person, but when you wake up from a nightmare about dead cats, big snakes, and really bad coffee…well, that first cup of coffee better be a good one. When its not…lets just say I’m hearing the whisperings of my  long dead grandmother in my ear as I try to salvage this coffee. Give the song a listen…let’s just say I’m a bit leery about this day already.
What I’m not leery about is the abundance of amazing items being created across the grid. If you can’t find something to wear, you aren’t looking hard enough, and let’s be honest, in SL? Yeah, you can walk around showing off your pretty lingerie like a Victoria Secrets model at promotional party. So, get your shop on…I, for one, will be putting on my fierce facade as I prepare for this ominous day!

Smokin’ in the Boys Room

Okay, totally telling my age here, but when I was in the 7th grade, I started smoking. Save your lectures, I’m an adult now. You’re too late. Anyway, those of that did smoke, usually did it behind the store that was behind our school…before and after school, but on occasion the true rebels would sneak downstairs to the 6th grade boy’s bathroom, as no teachers ever went in there and it had a huge window that opened to the back of the school away from everything. The logistic were perfect for all sorts of “illegal” activities…of course, this meant any boys in the 6th grade had to hold it or go upstairs and brave the 7th graders bathroom.
A few years later, the song, “Smoking in the Boys Room” by Mötley Crüe was all the rage and a few of us from middle school were still friends and wished that the song had come out sooner. We wondered if people still smoked in the bathroom of our old stomping grounds. I know they don’t anymore as they tore the school down last year and a Walmart grew in its place.

The Hustle

Yesterday morning, I was out running errands and as I’m turning into the shopping center, I see a man holding a sign that reads, “HOMELESS…” It said something under that, but I didn’t have time to read it as I was mid-turn and there were cars behind me. I go into the convenient store and ask another customer what he thought I should grab to give the man, since I don’t have cash and can’t get any from this particular store. Without blinking, he said, “Nothing, he’s probably not even homeless.”
I gave the man a sad look and said, “Okay, but I can’t assume the worse. Water? And….chips or?”
“Water or Gatorade and some chips maybe, but don’t give that fool any money.”

Given that I just said I don’t have any cash, I just nodded, grabbed the water and saw some peanut butter crackers. I’m thinking that’s more sustenance than chips, right? I passed on the Gatorade, because for all I know the man might be diabetic, right? Okay, so I take my purchases to the counter and by now, the whole store is talking about it. (Its a really tiny store.) My favorite cashier, Jimmy, is behind the counter saying how there are always guys on these two corners hustling and as soon as they get some cash they come and buy cigarettes.
As I set my stuff down in front of Jimmy, he looks at me smiling, “You’re getting this for that guy?”
“Yes, Jimmy. I can’t help it. You seen him around? What kind of cigarettes does he buy, I know you know.”
“Tall guy?”
“Not too tall,” I said.
“Only one I seen lately is a tall skinny dude. Ain’t seen him in a few days though.”
Alright, so I don’t buy any cigarettes for the homeless guy, but I’ve got water and crackers…and I did find $5 in my wallet. So, I drive back to the corner and the guy is gone!
He was just there a few minutes ago….I look all around and see no sign of him. I shrug and turn back out onto the main road to finish my errands. The main road takes me past the other corner. Which incidentally is a good ten minute walk from the first corner. There’s a different guy on that corner with a fresh hair cut (yes, I can tell…it was rather distinct and trust me, it was clean lines  and done recently) holding the same sign! I wasn’t able to stop at the second corner.

codex-piercings2

So, was I about to be hustled? Were these two men a team? Were they really homeless? I can’t know. Did I feel stupid? No. I feel good knowing I was doing the right thing in my heart. I can’t imagine you’d have much to your name if you were willing to stand around begging for handouts. I’ve been homeless, but I’ve never pan handled. I honestly don’t know if this sort of thing is really lucrative. I’ve heard stories, but because of my ever so colorful past, I have a soft spot for people who are struggling to make ends meet. I’m quick to give to those I believe are in need if I’m able. I’ll probably never know if they were trying to hustle me or not, but does it REALLY matter? I’m not going to apologize for believing in people. Perhaps that makes me a bit of a fool, but I’d rather be a helping fool than to lose so much faith in humanity as to believe every person holding a homeless sign in hustling. *shrugs* It was on my mind, so I shared the experience. I’m curious though, what would you have done?

Sady and the Dragon?

Join me, won’t you? For another journey down the rabbit hole into what’s otherwise known as Sady’s blogging process…and off we goooooooooo……. Just wave your fingers in front of your face and say, “Dooodliedooh Doodliedooh Doodliedoooh.” Think dream sequence from an old campy film…*nods.*
Alright, soooo…sometimes things just kinda happen to me, see? So, I’m fumbling through folders with ideas swirling around in my head like crazy when suddenly things just start falling into place and before you know it I’ve got this awesome scene with a giant dragon and me decked out in gold. Awesome! So, I grab the shots, do my editing…I’m happy with how it turns out. I slap two shots in my blog. I grab hyperlinks, tags, and categories. Boom, blog is almost ready to go. Now…what am I going to write?
I love fantasy pictures and creating fun scenes. I love movies with dragons but when it comes to actual lore? Nada. Sorry, I’m bone dry on that subject. I know they look super cool and I love them. I have a kissing dragons tattoo that I designed in rl, but I really don’t know any genuine dragon lore. So, naturally I went to Google to expand my knowledge base.
Step one, enter “golden dragon.” Step two, get bombarded with an endless list of Chinese restaurants across the U.S.A. Well, ok…lets try “gold dragon.” Ooooh, goodness, now I’m seeing links for all sorts of sites relating to Dungeons and Dragons, Dragon City, Forgotten Realms, and a few other gaming sites. Okay, this is not the lore I’m looking for. Back to the drawing board. I showed the photo to Josh and he suggested I write a story about Sady and the Dragon, but all I could think was Puff the Magic Dragon…which then made me think of smoking weed and how I really wish I had some right now. Ok, so no rule saying I have to write about dragons, right? So, I look up quotes about gold and the first thing I come across is a quote by Bob Marley and I’m back to wanting to smoke weed! Damnit!

annex-fgc2

Well, I don’t have any weed, but I do have some lindens…so retail therapy here I come…and well, more insane blogs coming your way! Meanwhile, how about you all get out there and discover your own fantasy look, especially those of you that actually know more of the lore. Ha! Tis the season…week…look, there’s fantasy stuff going on at events all over…time to bring some of your dreams to the screen. Whether you role play or just like to dress up in awesome fantasy attire…there’s fantasy loot every where you look right now.

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*

Weather the Storm

Its a pretty standard start to a conversation, “How are you?”
Depending on who is asking, I might give the obligatory and polite response, “I’m fine/ok/alright.” On occasion, I’ll be honest and sometimes I’m not ok/fine/alright. This happened to me today. My response was, “eh…battling my inner demons.” I was then asked what inner demons were, which struck me odd, as no one had ever asked me that before. It was just something people always understood and if they didn’t, they pretended to. I was desperate for an answer, as I didn’t want to sound rude or condescending. I grasped for the quickest thing I could think of and replied, ” like depression and voices and negative feelings and stuff.” I know that wasn’t a very accurate description, but I wasn’t really in the mood to spell it all out, as I’m the type that tends to withdraw and emotionally disconnect when the demons come calling.
I’ve been battling these demons for most of my life and over the years, they’ve gotten much stronger and much more difficult to fight. Most of the time, I just want to sleep, surrender to them in my dreams in the hopes that they will leave me alone upon waking. Naturally this does not always work. Sometimes, I think they simply arm themselves with more ammunition while I sleep. I know what’s happening. I know its temporary. I know it will pass. I, also, know that there’s nothing anyone can do to help. They are my demons and despite the many efforts made over the years by some pretty amazing people…those demons will never cease to haunt me. They are mine and they are with me always. All, I can do is weather the storm and wait for the sun to return to my dark little world. Sometimes, its only a matter of hours…sometimes, its days…and on a few occasions it has been weeks. I just have to ride it out and put on as brave a face as I can muster. Occasionally, one or two friends will break through and actually get me to open up about some of what’s going on. While, it usually helps me to talk about my feelings…discussing my demons is a completely different story.

weather-the-storm

This has been a rough year and as the year comes to a close, my demons have arrived prepared for a battle that I simply do not have the energy to fight. The light that is my essence will eventually find its way back to the surface and force the demons back the dark corners of my mind where they will reside until something else triggers their release.
I’v chosen to share this here, because that’s where I’m at right now. I’m not suicidal. I know this routine all too well. However, there are those that don’t. So, I urge you to reach out and check on each other. Not everyone is having a joyous holiday. Don’t worry about me. I’m weathering this storm as I have and will again, but please take care of each other. It really does make a difference to know people care.

I didn’t break out anything new and special for this photo. the shorts I’ve had almost a year, at least. No idea how long I’ve had the tee. The cardigan is fairly recent and I love it. I think the hair is the newest and its a lot like how I used to wear my rl hair years ago. So, here’s a little reminder not to worry so much about always buying the newest latest at all the events. We’ve got lots of amazing pieces in our inventory from months ago…give it a go, the next time you’re running low on lindens and waiting for more, or waiting for an event…have a look at some of those classic pieces in your inventory and create a whole new look.

What if…(Arranmore)

Yep, I’m up to the ole “What if…” scenario again. Let me explain how this one happened. I put together the outfit, loved it, wore it out a few places, came home to take pics, decided to go out into the world to take pics, landed at Arranmore, saw the crow, giggled at how closely Arranmore is to Nevermore, and I was off to the races! See? Tha’ts all perfectly logical, right? (Just nod, humor me here.)

old-crow-cover

So, what if it was the crow that sat upon a tombstone outside his favorite church on a Friday night, ya know, just minding his business…what if he was the one visited by this mysterious blonde woman? Perhaps her size is intiimidating to him so he freezes in place. She comes very close and looks him in the eyes. He’s so petrified his fight or flight responses shut down and he’s frozen in place, unable to move. What if he’s so moved by the visit he enlists the help of a woodpecker to record the event?

old-crow-2

  Ah, distinctly I remember it was a Friday night in November;
And I rest upon a tombstone, encouring its ghost to appear.
    Eagerly I wished the morsel or a meal;—vainly I had the ground for worms to steal
    From the garden entrance came a lady—blonde, wearing black..her name was Sady—
For the rare and radiant love of the cemetay floor—
            Nameless here for Arranmore.
Ok, I should never mess with anything by Edgar Allan Poe and I am somewhat ashamed of myself, but I’m equally amused. And given how his mind worked, I somehow think that ole Edgar and I would’ve gotten along just fine. So, I’m just going to rape his poem for my blog and hope he’s okay with it. If not, perhaps he can come and let me know, afterall…ghosts can travel, right?
So, the most important thing for you all to know about the stuff I’m wearing is this! The name of the skirt is Sady!!! That’s right! Why yes! It is named after me! Coincidence? NOPE! It really is named after me! Can you believe it? And its gorgeous!! So, go to the mainstore and get it so that you can say, “Sady is on my ass!” Plus, c’mon, its super freaking cute, right??? (Just nod and go get the skirt, you can stare at my butt later! Gaw!)

Where Will the Road Take You?

I believe that all roads lead to the same place – and that is wherever all roads lead to. Willie Nelson

where will you go
I grabbed a Willie quote because the man knows about traveling. Plus, he’s a stoner. *smirks*
I’ve talked about exploring in Second Life quite a bit lately, because I’ve been forcing myself out of my comfort zone and out onto the grid. Well, last night this place came to me. I got an IM from my dear friend, Tally, asking me to come see the sim, Venta Silurum, that he and his girlfriend, Kiana, have designed.  This is after my friends Rom and Tracy had raved about it already. I was super excited and couldn’t wait to see it. Upon landing I was set loose to explore on my own accord. Can you believe no tour? They just let me wander off and find my own trouble. *winks*
Okay, I didn’t find trouble for a while, but if you look in this picture you’ll see a road and a big bridge…just across that bridge is a….No, ya know what? Go see for yourself…Where will the road take you? And don’t be afraid to wander off the beaten path. There are some beautiful surprises waiting for you.
This sim is definitely different from others I’ve seen recently. After exploring and hanging out a bit, I knew exactly what type of shot I wanted. Off I went to hit a few events before heading back for my picture. Check out all details below…
