Way Down We Go

“Father tell me, we get what we deserve
Oh we get what we deserve
And way down we go
Way down we go
Say way down we go
Way down we go
You let your feet run wild
Time has come as we all oh, go down
Yeah but for the fall oh, my
Do you dare to look him right in the eyes?”
~Kaleo – Way Down We Go

How many of us truly belong in karma or some sort of divine justice? We’ve all heard people say, “there’s a special place in hell for people like that.” Some of us have even thought it or said it ourselves. So, while we sit in judgement of others, regardless of their offense, how many of us want the karma or divine justice we deserve? How many of us have taken a friend or lover down with us?
I think that its far too easy and convenient to point the fingers at others. I think that most of us revel in the crimes of the obscene, for it relieves us of some of the guilt we carry within our hearts. However, what if there’s a special place in hell for people like us? Does karma just skip the little stuff? Just food for thought.

Blueberry pt2

I recently did a post about mixing Blueberry sets and I promised that you’d be seeing this combination soon. I love this top so much. I know it’s supposed to be a bikini top, but I wear it with so many things. With that said, I’d like to mention that these leggings come with a hud to write your own message. I believe there are 14 charaters, 2 fonts, more than a dozen symbols…AND you can customize the colors of the letters. These Reign sneakers tie the whole thing together as they are fully customizable, as well. (I think I just made up a word, but let’s roll with it.)

The Classy Cougar

When I was younger, there was this woman, my mother’s age, that lived in my neighborhood that always fascinated me. At the time, I thought how much I’d like to be like her one day. Alas, that was not my destiny. She was beautiful and elegant, at least I thought so. Mind you, I was young and rather impressionable, not to mention naive. I just remember that she wore lingerie whenever you saw her at home. No, not pajamas, but beautiful lingerie, with long sheer, lace robes…some even had that furry stuff around the edges…and heels! Oh, she always had on heels to match. She was quite popular, as I’m sure you can imagine. How does the line in the song go…”She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends.” She definitely had those.
For a long time, I just watched her in admiration, imagining what life was like inside her apartment. I eventually met her and she was every bit as amazing in person. I went inside her apartment and it was amazing. The colors, the curtains…she had so many beautiful things. I got to know her over the coming months. I could probably write an entire book about her. Instead, I’m sharing a brief memory of a glamorous Nubian queen that I met once upon a time, because when setting up this photo I thought of her. Isn’t it funny the impressions that people sometimes leave on our lives?

Hello Darkness

“Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence”
~Paul Simon

I grew up listening to songs like this one, but for me…this particular song speaks to the creative part of me, the dreamer within me. It is late at night when the rest of the world is seemingly sleeping that my creative energy is at its best. I’ve written my best poems in the middle of the night and I can almost promise you that my best photos have been conceived of, or flowed along organically under the veil of night.
I remember living in Illinois when I was 21/22 and walking down to the river in the middle of the night, with my headset, pen and paper, and tissues. I almost always cried. No matter how hot or cold (and sometimes it was icy fucking cold) I could sit there on this private dock in a posh neighborhood that I had no business being in…and somehow feel like I was home. The river flowing past me, losing myself in either the music or the quiet flow of the water. It was a place that I could go to recapture my ideas and put them in order.I imagine now, the entire process would take place with a smart phone, but back then…depending on the moon for my light? I don’t know, there was something romantic about it. I suppose I’m rambling at this exact moment, as I feel myself getting lost in memories or yesteryear and I’ve got shopping to do in SL, because this creative mind of mine is alive and well at 12:30 am…there are ideas brewing!

Remembering Him

Have you ever met someone that altered your life completely? Someone that was only there for just a little while, but forever altered the course of your life? I did…almost married him, in fact. Fortunately, I didn’t, because looking back, I’m quite sure that wasn’t his purpose in my life, but changes were made that forced me to look at myself far deeper than I ever imagined I would. He still crosses my mind and I have no way of knowing if he’s dead or alive. I wouldn’t dare to look him up, for fear of what I might find. Somethings are just better left in the past.

Do Over

As a blog manager there are times that I have to reject some absolutely amazing photographs simply because they just didn’t showcase the item properly. As a blogger, I occasionally have photos rejected. Most of the time, I almost anticipate it, but I’ll cross my fingers and hope for the best. If it gets rejected, I take my licks like a big girl and I do it over and resubmit with a new post. I’ve never argued with a blog manager or quit a brand over it, either. Though I have seen quite a few bloggers do this in the past.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could have more do overs in our lives? What I wouldn’t give to go back in time with a handful of do overs!

Looking For My Spirit

So, a few months ago, I acquired a homestead and I’ve loved every minute of it. However, as I tackled the idea of landscaping it, I realized that there are plenty of sims with boats in the water, little shacks, forests, water and rocky shores. There are some truly amazing beach sims, as well as several other themes. So, I set out across the grid looking for the kind of sims that I’d like to visit aside from those. I found very few city sims that weren’t RP sims, but I suppose big cities aren’t really known for their scenery, so I kinda get that. Then I realized that my favorite sims were always evolving and were there as an expression of art…or hopefully inspiring to others. So, while my sim is not currently open to the public…hopefully this time next month it will be and I’ll be able to show you what it really looks like. This is not what it will look like….at all. *grins*

Watch Your Step

Here lately, I’ve found my creativity being poured into my photos, along with my heart. Though it may not always come across the viewer, there’s a spark of fire behind each one. I think I will continue to put a song with each post, but I’m going to go back to putting an embedded link at the very bottom of the post. I feel really guilty and sorta lazy when all I post is lyrics. On the other hand, I think sometimes I’m a too honest about my feelings and while I don’t know who actually reads them beyond a handful of completely amazing people, the wrong people certainly could. Thus, I’m starting to understand why Deva calls me brave sometimes. No, Deva, its called stupidity. LOL! I just know that one of these days something from my blog is going to come back to bite me in the ass. In the meantime, I’ll try watching where I step, cuz I seem to be stepping from one mess to another these days….and I advise you all to do the same.

Blueberry

This isn’t really something I do very often, but for this post I’m going to talk about two stores. Well, mostly one, but I’m going to touch on another. I’m actually thinking that I might even do this more often. We’ll see. If you’re a regular reader, you know that the only norm to my blog is the lack of one. So, let’s just dive right in.

First store, I want to touch on is Stealthic. I love not needing a hair base when I wear Stealthic hair. If anything, I need to remove my hairbase. To top it off, he has recently taken on curls and they look absolutely amazing, especially in photographs. So, if you’ve never tried it (and if not, what rock have you been under) go grab some demos and check it out for yourself.

The main store that I want to talk about is, of course, Blueberry. Here’s the thing, I’m just going to get real with you here. I’ve heard people say, “Oh I don’t buy Blueberry anymore, because whenever she releases something new, everyone on the grid is wearing it.” Okay, but have you seen how many colors she has? Have you seen how you can mix and match her pieces from one outfit to another? The picture below is a prime example. This top came with a wrap around jacket and was released along side some adorable new leggings. However, I couldn’t resist mixing this top with the bikini bottoms from her previous release. You’ll see me mixing the bikini top with the bottoms next and there was another top with the bikini….a fringed top. That one is perfect with these bottoms or jeans….or even just panties. There’s no linden law that says you must wear Blueberry the way it was released. AND the more pieces you own? The more outfits you can make…and the thing is, they’re going to match, cuz its all from her color palette. Alright, I’ll hush now so you can go shopping….and take notice of how perfectly my Eurdora sandals are matching. *winks*
