Distant, everything is scattered When your mind is shattered and torn apart In an instant, I can be indifferent The blame is always shifted from the start Leafless treetops in the snow Views of death and bitter cold But the darker the weather, the better the man You can take all you want, but not who I am But the darker the weather, the better the man You can take all you want, but not who I am You can’t have my- Sun shines through an open window Close the curtains real slow to hide the light But in time, maybe I can change it We’ll find someone who feels the same as me You broke me down and stole my soul Left me vacant and all alone
The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes. If you foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it. Your life will be impoverished. But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life. – Frank Lloyd Wright
“The right thing to do is not always the easiest thing to do. There may be some struggles and difficulties but in the end, you will be happy that you did what was right. If you are ever unsure of what to do, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and be still. In the stillness, all answers appear.” Paul Taubman

I wanted to do a family day at the beach kind of photo, but with fur babies instead of kids. I mean, I don’t have any kids in RL and the one I have in SL….well, if I took him to the beach, he’d run around naked and his ginger (though quite handsome) ass would get sunburned from head to toe! So, fur babies it is! I even included a video of an adorable puppy at the beach. One of the things this photo extra special for me is that it features some of the new releases you can find at the current round of TLC which opened two days ago. I’m so excited about this round. It really has a little bit of everything. I swear each one is getting better and better, so prepare yourselves, cuz I’ll be sharing as many of the gorgeous creations as I possibly can! Another reason this photo is special, is because it also features a couple of items from Evolve. So, I know what you’re thinking…”What? Another freaking event?” Well, hold on a minute, this is not an event you fight your way into, while standing around waiting for everything rez as more avatars pour in on top of you, bumping you (which doesn’t hurt, so stop whining)…etc etc. NO. This is a mainstore event. You will start at Seraphim, grab the HUD and proceed to be whisked away on a magic carpet…ok, ok, its just a tp, calm down. You’ll be magically transported (better? GAWD!) to one mainstore after another. Each store will have a brand new release created just for the event, PLUS….you can look around at that creator’s other delightful designs. You can join store groups and grab great gifts. This is more than a shopping event…THIS is a shopping adventure! All in all, this post contains a lot of things I’m involved in professionally. Since I’m the assistant blog manager for Tableau Vivant, Glam Affair, and now Evolve…annddd, I’m the owner of TLC. Not to mention that I consider several of the designers featured to be dear friends of mine. I am so blessed to have such talented people in my life. I wonder if I piled them all up and rolled around naked on them some of their talent would rub off on me? *grins*
I haven’t been feeling much like myself the last couple of days, but before that I was so busy I didn’t have time to think. Now that things have slowed down just a bit, I feel rather lost and not quite sure what to do with myself. I did take some time away from the pc yesterday. Did some reading and just relaxing. I was hoping to sit out on my patio, but its been just a bit too chilly and everything is wet from the recent rains. So, I curled up in bed with my book instead. Not a lot going on at the moment, but I swear if I’m not balls to the wall busy…I just feel lost. However, its Monday, so I’ve hit the ground running this morning and I’m off to conquer a new week!
Friends come and go, friends come and go Go like the seasons I never know, I never know what to believe in And it’s getting old, it’s getting old But no hard feelings ‘Cause friends come and go, friends come and go without a reason And I, I’ve been in L.A. for way too long Can’t get this air inside my lungs It feels like I’m suffocatin’ from all the lack of the realness here Is there anybody real out here? Got my middle, middle up while I’m singing Fuck fake friends, we don’t need ’em Only thing they’re good for is leaving Fuck fake friends, we don’t need ’em I’ve had it up to the ceiling Fuck fake friends, we don’t need ’em Only thing they’re good for is leaving And I ain’t got the time, money on my mind (yeah) I’ll say it to your face, fuck fake friends

I’d say its fairly obvious that I’m not into anime or even Asian culture. Though, I do love some Asian cuisine! So, the first time I saw or even heard of a kitsune was in Second Life. Even then, I wasn’t all that interested. I just assumed it was a cute creature from Anime. I was like, “Kitsune…huh?” Eventually, I looked it up! What I found surprised me.
Kitsune in the literal sense is the Japanese word for fox. Foxes are a common subject of Japanese folklore; in English, kitsune refers to them in this context. Stories depict legendary foxes as intelligent beings and as possessing paranormal abilities that increase as they get older and wiser. –Wikipedia
If you keep reading the Wiki page about it, you’ll discover that the more tails it’s more powerful, older, and wiser. So, as you can see by just the little bit of information on the Wiki page, kitsune isn’t an anime thing after all. They are part of Japanese folklore more so than anime. Now, I just feel stupid for always assuming that’s what they were. Just a gentle reminder to do a little research before we go running off at the mouth about things we don’t really know about.
