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!

Politically Correct

“The wolf said, “You know, my dear, it isn’t safe for a little girl to walk through these woods alone.”

Red Riding Hood said, “I find your sexist remark offensive in the extreme, but I will ignore it because of your traditional status as an outcast from society, the stress of which has caused you to develop your own, entirely valid, worldview. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must be on my way.”

Before Love Came to Kill Us

I know nobody gets outta love alive
We either break up when we’re young
Or we say goodbye when we die
For a moment at least I know
You were mine and it was beautiful
But winter comes and roses don’t survive
It’s gettin’ late
And I should go
But I wanna hold ya
Like it’s June in the west end
Back when you were my best friend
Before love came to kill us
We’re not supposed to
But I can’t learn my lesson
I miss when you were my best friend
Before love came to kill us

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.

Inside and Out

So, I wanted to make a complete scene, inside and outside, because these items just kinda flowed together…at least in my mind. Below each picture there’s a set of credits that pertain specifically to that photo. I don’t know if I’ll do this again, but y’all know me…I like to experiment from time to time. *grins*

Loving Myself

Like so many others, I notice people popping in and out of relationships in Second Life and I observe several that seem to endure the test of time. One thing that I notice quite a bit in the failing relationships is betrayal, mental/emotional abuse, and neglect. I can’t help but wonder if these people have children. If they do, would they want their children to behave in such a manner? Would they encourage their children to stay in a toxic relationship? I certainly hope not. I will never understand why people think its okay to treat one another so poorly and better yet, why anyone would accept that type of behavior.
Perhaps I’m too intolerant. Maybe I’m too picky. I know I have trust issues or rather full blown lifelong subscriptions, but there’s no way in hell I’m going to allow someone to be so blatantly abusive or disrespectful towards me. Yes, I do get incredibly lonely at times, but I’d rather work on loving myself than trying to survive a destructive relationship.

Trouble for Trouble

So, for the past week or so, I’ve been learning bits and pieces about PhotoShop. I know, I know, that’s all I seem to talk about. I’ll stop after this post…maybe. *giggles* My main teacher has been the ever talented, Trouble Dethly. You may have heard of him. He’s one of the co-founders of BVN. He’s the editor of Eclipse Magazine. He’s an active blogger with a unique style unlike anyone else I’ve seen. He also happens to be the SL son of Kess Crystal, who just so happens to be my SL sister. Well, Trouble has been so kind and patient with me, despite my ancientness. *glares at Trouble* Even though I backed out of two scheduled lessons, he still agreed to help me. So, after hours of guiding me through the various steps he takes to completely edit a photo, we have come up with the shot you see here. I took the photos in SL over a week ago, but we finally broke down and edited the shot the other night. I’m so happy with the results and I’m truly blessed to have had such a wonderful instructor. Thank you, Trouble…I hope I wasn’t too much trouble…tehehe.

Taboo topics

The other day I wrote about people being overly sensitive on the internet and told them to Get off the internet! After reading that post a friend of mine IMd me to tell me how much she enjoyed the post. We got to talking about how certain subjects are so taboo, but that they shouldn’t be. Topics like mental health…depression and suicide, specifically. That just maybe if these topics weren’t so taboo, that people could talk about their feelings without feeling so ashamed and just possibly find the help they need. I’m not going to go into some diatribe about these subjects, but I am going to ask that my readers be more open to discussing such topics. You might just save a life. Depression is a very real illness and it is not just about having a pity party. Its so much more than that. I think for some it is impossible to understand until it has been experienced. I’m looking at you, Tom Cruise, but naturally you don’t think you’re crazy. *rolls Dusty’s cartoon eyes* Seriously, check on one another, be kind to each other, and share whatever love is in your heart with as many people as possible.
