Snowdrops

My sister, Kess Crystal, opened her winter sim today. It might seem a tad early to some, but in plenty of places around the world…the snow has been on the ground for a while. This sim is absolutely gorgeous and I highly encourage you to check it out. There’s actually activities on the sim, as well. I’m not going to tell you too much about it, because honestly I want you to go check it out for yourself. I know I’ll be coming back to ice skate on this gorgeous ice skating area behind me!

She’s Singing

It’s 5am and my 74yr old mother is dancing through the house singing Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” I don’t even think she realizes what she’s singing, but she’s doing a well enough job that I recognize the song. I just pulled up the song on YouTube and she comes running in asking how did I know she had that song stuck in her head. *cracks up* Well, Mom, you tend to think out loud…so its not that hard to know what you’re thinking. God, I love this woman!

Ashes of Eden

Will the faithful be rewarded
When we come to the end
Will I miss the final warning
From the lie that I have lived
Is there anybody calling
I can see the soul within
And I am not worthy
I am not worthy of this
Are you with me after all
Why can’t I hear you
Are you with me through it all
Then why can’t I feel you
Stay with me, don’t let me go
Because there’s nothing left at all
Stay with me, don’t let me go
Until the Ashes of Eden fall
~ Breaking Benjamin – Ashes of Eden

You got me seein’ all the signs

I’ve been runnin’ from the dark times
Leavin’ all the demons behind
Tired of readin’ all the same lines
Always lookin’ for the same thing, I can’t find

Baby I can’t lie
You were in the right place, at the right time
Tryin’ not to think about you
But you’ve got me seein’ all the signs

Heaven can wait
‘Til we get it all out the way
Make no mistake
Never switchin’ lanes
‘Cause I don’t see myself without you by my side
So I’m not wastin’ anytime
And you know that I’ll always need you in my life
‘Til we see the other side

I don’t want to mess this thing up

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight
Just a touch of the fire burning so bright
And I don’t want to mess this thing up
I don’t want to push too far
Just a shot in the dark that you just might
Be the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life
So baby I’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight

Hey, Watch!

It just so happened after I shot this picture, some of my lovely friends invited me to come hang out at The Bay (where I sometimes host). Well, I was already dressed for it, so why not, right? Upon landing they were quick to inform me that I looked like BayWatch reloaded…*giggles* I have to admit, that was kinda the look I was going for…I even pumped up the tatas for this shot. I even laughed when I did it, because it was more like, “Hey, Watch!” than BayWatch.  Anyway, we’ve got gorgeous earrings from Triggered paired with a swimsuit from Boosh, both can be found at the current round of Belle. Add in this gorgeous windblown hair from Wasabi that’s over at Bloom and I’m ready for the beach!

I remember when I lost my mind

I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind
There was something so pleasant about that place.
Even your emotions had an echo
In so much space

And when you’re out there
Without care,
Yeah, I was out of touch
But it wasn’t because I didn’t know enough
I just knew too much

Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Does that make me crazy?
Possibly

My Daughter

I could brag endlessly on my SL daughter, Chickadee Tremor, but to do so would reveal more about her real life than is my right to share. So, I will simply say that I love and adore her in both worlds. She inspired me to be a better person every single day. And to her, I say, “Thank you for being my daughter.”

Slow Down

As I was driving home from therapy, I got behind a navy and silver SUV. I was thinking how great the colors looked together and why there aren’t more two tones cars. Eventually, I realized that it was a State Trooper. So glad I wasn’t tailgating. HA! So, as we’re traveling along the same road, I come upon my exit, or rather on ramp, and the trooper wants over. I motion for her/him to come on over and s/he does. We circle around the ramp and approach the interstate. Just as we get to the spot where its time for us to merge into the other lanes, this little silver sedan goes flying by at top speed. I thought to myself immediately, “Bad timing, Dude.” The trooper and I both merge rather effortlessly. I hold back from my usual shot forward, because I ain’t trying to catch a ticket. Low and behold, the trooper shot forward. At first, I thought s/he was just bolting forward because s/he can. Then I saw it. The lights started flashing and as I got closer, s/he had indeed chased down the silver sedan and was pulling it over.
In that moment, I couldn’t help but think how much a single minute in our lives can make a difference. If the silver sedan had been one minute behind us, maybe…. If the trooper had been one minute faster…if I had been one minute faster or slower, would I have been the one getting the ticket? Naturally that made me think of how fast things move in Second Life. I don’t move as quickly as most and I suppose that’s why I have remained single all this time. I know what I like. I know what I don’t like. I know myself well enough to know whether or not I’m going to be romantically compatible with people fairly quickly. I think I tend to move a bit quickly with friendships and trust friends more than I should, but I’m not ready to change either of those things about myself. Not just yet, but I think we could all benefit by take a moment to slow down. The internet isn’t going anywhere. Second Life isn’t a race and collecting partners is not the goal. I think its more important to share love and laughter as often as possible…and THAT is what I’m all about.

Let’s Taco ’bout You

If you’ve been in Second Life for any substantial amount of time, then you’ve had someone get all up in your business. You’ve had someone watching your every move. You’ve had someone hate you for no rational reason. You’ve had someone make you out to be something you’re not. This happens to all of us at some point in time. Hell, some of us even experience this in real life. I really don’t know what happens to a person to make them behave in such an obsessive manner. We’ve all been hurt and betrayed at some point in our lives. So, I have a really hard time wrapping my brain around what makes someone so consumed with other people’s lives that they allow it to rob them of their own joy. It’s actually quite sad, really. Can you imagine wasting so much of your energy on someone you don’t like and constantly trying to justify your actions to yourself?
Maybe you’re one of those that gets in other people’s business or stalks them or hates someone for no rational reason. To those that do the watching and hating, I have one thing to say, “Just maybe if you paid as much attention to your own life, your own business, you would have a life worth living. Until you do learn to mind your own business, enjoy the show, cuz the light in my life shines far too bright for me to be worried about you.”
I’ve said it many times in the past and I’m sure I’ll say it again, “If you’re not feeding me, financing me, or fucking me…your opinion of me does not matter, nor do you get a say.” So, keep talking about me, keep accusing me, keep watching me, keep hating me….as for me? Well, its Tuesday…and I’m having tacos, Baby! Of course, I wrapped this all up with Taco Tuesday. *laughs* Did you expect anything less?
