Love Spills

“Love spills and it looks so pretty.
Seeps through my love, my city.
Love kills,
But in my mind still.
You can’t beat that spark, that thrill…”
~Radkey’s Love Spills

 I don’t know if that song is what Poe Cross had in mind when he created the Love Spills prop, but it immediately reminded me of that song and I love it! I honestly love the lyrics to that song, because unlike a lot of songs these days…well, it reads like poetry. I’d recommend giving it a listen and also go read the lyrics without the music, because they are pretty powerful. That’s assuming you like poetry as much as I do. If not, enjoy the song, because it rocks.

Love Spills

I don’t have any deep insightful thoughts to share on the topic, because for me music and lyrics can be pretty personal. What I get from them might not be what you get and I honestly don’t want to influence whatever you get from it. In the same sense that I heard an artist say that he doesn’t put the lyrics with his CDs, because he had someone come up and tell him how much  one of his songs meant to her. She went on to tell him how deeply it had impacted her life. When she quoted a specific line back to him, he realized that she had heard the lyrics all wrong. She wasn’t even close, but he loved that she had found something in the song that he never intended. I think that artist was Seal, but I’m not going to dig around for the whole story just to prove a point.

I will, however, tell you a little bit about the scene in this photo. The backdrop and the Love Spills prop are part of The Epiphany gacha set that Industry7 has created, which is closing pretty soon, so make sure you get over there before it does.  Those red tubes are actually a vibrant blue, but I modified them to red for this photo. I ran the bench though the wall cuz I wanted something a bit different for the photo, but it actually seats four people, two on each side and has really awesome animated poses in it. I used the metal version, but it comes with a wooden version as well and is available at TLC (link below).

Where the Heart Is

“There is nothing more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.”
Homer, The Odyssey

In Second Life, our beautiful and dramatic virtual world, emotions can run just as strong as they do in the real world, sometimes even stronger. When I find myself feeling like I’m home with that one person or that group of people..when I know there’s no place I’d rather be than there…wherever they are…then I know I have found home. When those special people aren’t around. whether is because of computer issues, internet interruptions, or simply real life? I try to venture out into the world and discover new people and new places. Not as replacements or even fillers, but enhancements and possibly even some new “family.” If you read my blog regularly, you know that’s what I’ve been doing lately. If not, you know now.  In venturing out, I made some amazing new friends and nurtured some existing friendships.

Yet, there are few joys that compare to sitting and chatting with that special someone. Feeling like I’m actually home for the first time in over a week. I won’t get too very personal here or get all TMI (shut up, Rom). I’ll try not to get too mushy or love-dovey (shut it, Tracy). I can’t help but gush just a little bit about the amazing people in my life, especially the one pictured here with me. Sino and I have gone back and forth from friends to lovers to friends to lovers to almost hating each other, but always loving each other for…well…over a year now. And no matter what, I just know in my heart that he and I will ALWAYS be friends first. We’ve made our friendship our first priority and the foundation on which we build everything else. He came home today, as in back online after being gone FOREVER. Ok, perhaps it was only a week and a half, but even my best friends knew I was going bonkers.  Anyway, he’s home now. I’m happy again and looking forward to introducing him to all my new and wonderful friends…just as soon as I’m done making up for lost time.
Soooo, I’ll see you all next week. I hope you all enjoy your weekend. ❤

I’ll Be Good…ok, I’ll try

“I’ll be good, I’ll be good
And I’ll love the world, like I should
Yeah, I’ll be good, I’ll be good
For all of the times that I never could.”
~~Jaymes Young‘s I’ll Be Good

 

Despite what people might think I do try to be a good person. That was not always the case and one attribute I’m known for is my brutal sarcasm. I won’t go into the birth of this sarcasm, but I will touch on the fact that it continues to amuse me when people discover this “mean streak” of mine and are genuinely shocked. Let’s face it, my legacy name inworld is Sadystika Sabretooth. You’d think that would be a clue. Yet, for every amazing and intelligent friend I have that knows I only banter with the ones I love, there is someone out there with such delicate feelings that they all but cry when I ask them to please communicate effectively. For instance, if you say to me that you needs “some of dat coffee to wit this coffee I’m drinking here”…well, yes, I’m going to be confused and you should damn well expect a blank stare. Am I lost? No, dear, you’re just stupid, but do I say that? No, I simply twirl my blonde hair around my finger and stare into space. All the while, the coffee with coffee drinker has the audacity to laugh because I got lost. Or, I don’t know, one of my personal favorites was the guy who wanted to show me his new pixelated pubic patch. No, dear, I’m not offended. You’re just stupid.

I realize that not everyone has received a proper education, been taught manners, or has been shown love as a child. Trust me, I don’t go around the grid poking fun at the uneducated or the slow learners (with the exception of one friend, who is actually a borderline genius…she just has the memory of a goldfish.) I’m not cruel or rude (usually.) I honestly try very hard to be nice. This was not always the case, mind you.

In my twenties, I truly thought I knew it all. I believed I was ten feet tall and bullet proof. Turns out, I knew nothing. I was merely five foot three inches tall and quick on my feet. I walked around with a chip on my shoulder and a fight waiting to happen. I blamed my childhood and any other situation in which I could play the victim. Eventually, with time and life experiences, I grew up. I had to let go of my cold, merciless, broken excuses and be somewhat of an adult. I learned to choose my battles a bit more wisely. I also learned to choose the wheres and whens of reckless behaviors a lot more carefully.
So, instead of going out there and getting into arguments with the half-wits on the grid. I simply shake my head and laugh. (Ok, sometimes I toy with them to see how long it will take them to figure out that I’m just being a little….well…you get the idea.) What was I saying? Oh yes, instead of lashing out, acting out, and getting myself mixed up in some sort of trouble…now? I go shopping and one of my biggest weaknesses are Gachas. Which is precisely how this post started.

I’ve been a bad, bad girl. I visited The Gacha Garden and went so completely nuts on the Astralia Wisdom Angel gacha machine that I didn’t even realize how many times I played until low and behold I received the Seed of Inspiration gift! You gotta admit, its an amazing outfit. I didn’t manage to get the third rare, but I’d say I did alright. There are tons of events just starting up, but The Gacha Garden is definitely one you don’t want to miss. Stay tuned for more goodies from the various other events across the grid, cuz while I’m trying to be good…I have an addiction to feed! Happy shopping! ❤
