For the Love of Books

In November of last year, Atelier Burgundy & Pitaya teamed up to create a bookstore gacha for Anthem. Fortunately for me, there was a fatpack option. Without any hesitation or even too close of a look, I snatched it up and sat on it for months. I knew a time would come that I would finally create a used bookstore. Well, here comes Anthem with a boho themed round for April and lucky little me, had access to Bueno’s set, as well as THOR’s. Now, get this…InsurreKtion recently invited me to join their blogging team as a VIP and there it was, sitting so pretty in Blogotex! A boho deco set!!! I knew this was it! I quickly rezzed all the things….the bookstore fatpack and all three of my boho sets. But wait, there’s more magic…Mikel Monk, the creator behind the Bueno brand, had named his couch, Kerouac!! Now, I realize there are tons of readers out there that have their own connection to Jack Kerouac, but for a while in college, I was absolutely obsessed. I even had a cat named, Jack Kerouac! I mean, clearly this was a sign, right?

I did my best to list everything in the credits, but as you can see from the photo, I used a ton of items to create my used bookstore. I was picturing one of those really cozy used book stores, that brings in a few treats first thing in the morning with a couple of canisters of coffee, but once those things are gone, that’s it for the day. They sell a variety of collectibles, new and used books, and encourage their customers to hang out.

I typed book and books into my inventory search and just started rezzing out everything. I didn’t bother trying to list every single collection, stack, and row of books, because that would have taken me all day. Let’s face it, I’d rather be reading! I did grab the names of some things, but if you really want to know a specific item in the photo, just let me know. I don’t think I’ll be tearing down this scene anytime soon. ☺

Paw to the Jaw

I love my cat. I really do, but I’m starting to understand why people prefer dogs. I woke up this morning to a paw to the jaw. Yep, that’s right, he walked on my face. My reaction was a slinging arm which resulted in a cat flung across the bed, followed by a soft murr. This was not a wounded cat sound. Trust me, I’ve heard plenty of those noises. Step on a cat’s tail just once and  you’ll never forget it. No, just three little gentle murrs. I couldn’t go back to sleep at this point. I had to get up and find out if he was okay. I’m not a monster, ya know? He’s fine. Once he saw that I was awake, his attitude suddenly changed. I swear that he looked at me and in his little meow language said, “Oh, you’re up! Feed me?”
Needless to say, I fed the little bastard and now he’s lying comfortably on his perch, licking himself. I’m pretty sure he’s quite proud of himself this morning. *looks out the window* FFS, the sun isn’t even up yet. I suspect there’s a nap in my future.

How ’bout these notions

I hear the birds
When they’re singing
I hear the sirens
When they’re ringing
But I can’t take my mind off of you
A thousand words, pouring out
The distance of over there
Is moving on and out
You said it’d be alright
How ’bout these notions
Hmm, they’re deep as ocean
Calling out my name
Screaming out in vain
Singing hallelujah
Tell your mother, she don’t understand
Tell your mother, she’s not listening
Why don’t you tear my heart
The chain is made of string
I roll the dice
You seal the deal
That don’t matter
Cause pain will heal
I will follow you
Into the dark

The Attention it Deserves

I absolutely love decor, but I find myself struggling with decor blogging more and more. I’m definitely to a point in my blogging career that I no longer apply for teams. I might “reapply” for a team I don’t want to leave, but I’m not looking for more. I’m starting to get back to where I started with all this and that was more about blogging exactly what I wanted, when I wanted. Now I have deadlines that rarely match my inspiration. My passion has always been fashion, but I wanted to do it all. I’m not cutting out decor entirely, but I definitely think I will continue to cut back in the upcoming months. It takes much more time than I have and the more jobs I take on in SL, the less time I have for blogging, especially decor scenes that often take me at least a week to finish. In the end, I often feel that I’m not giving decor the attention it deserves. The next time you’re decorating or shopping, zoom in close and appreciate the tiny details that creators put into their work.

It’s easy

Just going to share a link to one of my favorite covers of The Beatles’ All You Need is Love

Nothing you can know that isn’t known
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown
Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be
It’s easy

All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

Take One Day Away

“Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
― Maya Angelou, Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now

Try to be Better

It saddens me to know that there are so many people out there expending valuable time and energy on hateful activities. More than ever the world needs love. More than ever people need compassion. More than ever we need open minds and open hearts. Is it really so hard for us to keep our nasty, negative comments to ourselves? Listen, this isn’t a lecture. Far be it for me, of all people, to tell others how to live. I’m as far from perfect as they get and I’m as guilty as the next person of making snarky comments about someone I don’t even know to a friend in a private IM. However, these things haunt me when I lie down to sleep at the end of the day. These thoughts do not rinse away when I wash my face and brush my teeth before bed. No, these wretched thoughts haunt me…sometimes for years. So, why do we do it? I don’t have an answer, but I do know that I’m going to try to be better.

Be Grateful

I think its important to remember that we are blessed. Yes, this world is a mess right now, but if you’re reading this it means you have the internet. While it might seem like a necessity, it is actually a luxury that many people do not have for a variety of reasons. It really is a good idea to take stock of our lives and the count the various blessings that surround us. The simplest of things can be taken away in a flash. The roof over our heads, the food in our bellies, the friends that we reach out to…all these things could be gone in a flash. So, while the world’s troubles weigh heavy on all of our hearts, let us also remember to be grateful. ♥
