Be prepared

There’s nothing quite like blogging a kitchen to show off some of the delicious foods that the creators in Second Life like to tease us with. Be it healthy or dripping in virtual calories, we can enjoy the assortment of goodies guilt free! Just so happens that I’m on a new regime to start eating healthier….living healthier, actually. So, be prepared to see more food in my posts, as looking at most of these delicious things will be all I can do! *laughs*

On Your Way

Dear Autumn,
I didn’t get a chance to know you, but you were loved by so many. I would have traded places with you if I could. While this song is not a perfect fit from me to you. I do think its carries more than one message from more than one person. I know the world is a little darker without you. As my light has been so dim the last few years, I will do my best to shine a little brighter to make up for your absence. You are greatly missed. I hope you are at peace and that you’ve finally escaped your earthly pains.

Love & light,
Sady

On your way to God,
Did you think of me?
On your way to heaven,
Did you say “I’ll see you again”?

It wasn’t me, why wasn’t it me?

On your way to to the promised land, did you say
“Oh, she was such a friend”?
Then they took you higher and
I don’t know if I can follow…

It wasn’t me, why wasn’t it me?

On your way, I said to the air,
I don’t know if I am strong.
So I climbed to the mountain
And I don’t know what I did wrong

And it was just me, just little ole me…
~ Alabama Shakes – On Your Way

Just in case what?

We never know how much stuff we truly have until you start packing to move. I used to move regularly and I became a real pro at moving. I had a system and I always had one box that was titled, “First night.” In the first night box, I would pack my pillow, a roll of toilet paper, a coffee cup, coffee & filters, the coffee maker, pajamas, a change of clothes, a couple of towels, and a special keepsake. The keepsake was something I could place on a counter or in a window that signified I was home. It might seem silly, but it became a ritual of mine. I don’t move anymore. At least, I don’t expect that I’ll be moving again. So, no more packing. What has happened is that I’ve gotten really good at collecting crap. I’ve got so much stuff that I’m packed away, “just in case.” Just in case what? That I suddenly become a crafting junkie? That’s I’m going to take up sewing? That I’m going to suddenly inherit a bunch of candles? That I’m going to start making candles again? Not freaking likely! It’s time for me to start throwing stuff away, before I become one of those wretched hoarders I see on TV!

Dancing with Fish

I’ve been wanting to do a picture like this for quite sometime…a dancer in the woods with fishes. A bit surreal, but as I’ve said before…surrealism is probably my favorite art genre. Luckily for me, Foxwood released these fantastic ghost fish at Collabor88. Then as if reading my mind, Dead Dollz released the Harajuku Set. As soon as I saw the set from Dead Dollz, I knew what I was going to do. I only hope that everyone appreciates it as much as I loved doing it. ♥

Remind them

Strange days are upon us. Well, they’re upon me for sure. Everyday seems to be filled with contradictions. Days of loss have been mingled with days of opportunity. Days of bad news have been mixed with days of good news. This month so far, has just been confusing, but mostly sad and disappointing. I do try to keep positive as much as I can, especially in my blog. I don’t want to bring other people down just because I’m suffering. However, its a little hard to do when there’s so much sadness all around me. It’s not even my heartache, to be honest. But it absolutely guts me to see people I love hurting so much. Today, I’m just asking that everyone that reads this…please reach out to those closest to you and remind them they are loved.

So heavy in the air

I wish I knew what made dreams linger so heavy in the air around my mornings. The good dreams always fade fairly quickly unless I make an effort to hold onto them. The bad ones will haunt me for days. I dream about those I’ve lost and I wake up in such emotional pain that is like losing them all over again. My mind will replay the bits and pieces of my dream and my past…until I’m sick to my stomach from it all. I don’t know if that’s normal for others, but its been this way my entire life. When I was younger, the dreams weren’t of those I’ve lost, but the fears of losing people…the fears of being hunted like prey. I still remember a dream that repeated itself for years when I was between 11-14yrs old. It still haunts me to this day, though it has been many years since I last encountered the nightmare.

Just for kicks

Can’t keep my hands to myself
Think I’ll dust ’em off, put ’em back up on the shelf
In case my little baby girl is in need
Am I coming out of left field?
Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, now
I been feeling it since 1966, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Ooh woo, I’m a rebel just for kicks, now
Let me kick it like it’s 1986, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still

It’s behind us

We’ve all had someone do something awful to us at some point in our lives. Whether it was something massively tragic like child abuse, being attacked, or simply betrayed by someone we believed loved us more than they did. No matter the degree or the nature of the pain, the bottom line is that someone hurt us. As humans (though some of us are more cat like) we instinctively want to know why. We want our pain to be acknowledged by the perpetrator. And last but not least, we want retribution.
I learned a lesson about “why” when I was a kid. My father had this awesome friend, Randy. I absolutely adored him and he was always making me laugh. I remember he came over one day and began saying that WHY was irrelevant. He started breaking down all my why questions. Why is the sky blue? “Drop the why and you simply have a fact. It doesn’t matter why. The point is that it IS.” Is the sky blue? Yes. Why do we park in the drive way and drive on the parkway? Do we park in the drive way and drive on the parkway? Yes. He taught me early on that unless there was something to be gained from knowing why, there was no point in asking. So, I ask you…why did someone hurt me? Did someone hurt me? Yes. Knowing why serves no real purpose. Its not going to help me heal. It’s not going to change what happened. It’s not going to do anything, except make me ask more useless questions. I’m not an FBI profiler, I’m not going to get to the bottom of what makes a monster tick. It is simply for curiosity’s sake that I want to know why. It is not going to lesson my pain one bit.
Why do we need perpetrators to acknowledge what they did? Well, I just talked about why questions. So, the real question is do we need perpetrators to acknowledge what they did? No. We know what they did. The only reason we should NEED an admission of guilt is if we feel as though people do not believe us. Even then, we know what happened and whether admitted or not, the perpetrator knows. As far as the rest of the world, it only matters if there are criminal charges in question. Which leads me to the retribution part. We all want to feel vindicated. We trust in the laws of our government, our religions, karma, etc. However, the truth is that many people will never pay for their bad deeds. EVER. For us to walk around holding onto some sort of resentment waiting for them to pay the price? Well, that’s a bit like walking around with stones in our pockets for absolutely no reason except to be reminded that we’re carrying around these heavy rocks just to be reminded that we’re being fools for carrying around heavy rocks.
At the very end of it all, the only thing we can change in all of this is how we go forward. Regardless of why or acknowledgment or even retribution, we can choose to carry those stones in our pockets punishing ourselves for what someone else did. OR we can empty our pockets and walk away with our heads held high knowing that whatever happened is in our past. It’s behind us…so without looking back, just bend over a bit, smack yourself on the butt and tell all that crap to kiss to your ass!

I love cats

Its no secret that I love cats. Hell, half the time my display name is SadyCat or SadyKat or Kitten or Kitty….all sort of feline variations. They really do amaze me. Did you know they have special detergents in their saliva? That’s how they bathe themselves so well and humans don’t need to give them baths unless they get into something terrible. Which is fortunate considering how much cats hate water. They’re very independent animals and have very distinct personalities, as any cat owner will tell you.

My love for cats should be fairly evident to anyone that looks at my Flickr, actually. I feature them more than any other animal. Though to be fair, dogs are not far behind. I just love animals. I wanted to be vet when I was kid. That lasted until I was 8yrs old and saw how they took my cat’s temperature. That was the end of the that dream for me. Between the look on my cat’s face and the flipping of my stomach, I knew that was something I never wanted to experience again!
