The Outlaw

She knew the moment she saw him walk into the bar that she wanted him. He looked wild and untamed. He was an outlaw, it was written in the rugged lines carved into his tanned skin. His tattoos was old and some of them were clearly done behind bars. This was not love at first sight. No, this was a raw savage lust. She’d never known such a need to feel someone else’s skin pressed to hers before. She knew his type and she knew he’d want something simple like whiskey or whatever beer was on tap. She place both in front of him and smiled, “First round is on the house.”
By the end of the night, he was ready to follow her home and she was ready to let him. That was weeks ago, now they had a routine. He would call her whenever he rolled into town to see if she was busy. If she wasn’t busy, he would drop in for the night. Their passion was raw and unbridled. Their affair only lasted the summer, but the urgency with which they made love would be forever etched into her memory.

waitiing for him
Whenever he called, she anxiously waited on the balcony until she saw him ride up on his bike.

That 70’s Look

This was such a fun scene for me to set up. While I know this will truly date myself, its not like I try to hide my age. One of the reasons this was so much fun was that I was able to dig into my childhood memories. Afterall, I grew up in the 70s and we moved around a lot. Finding pieces to build around a fondue set really took me back, because my mom was so excited when she got her first fondue pot that I think we had it twice a week for a couple of months. I don’t have any deep inspirational words of wisdom or a funny story today, just a smile on my face as I remember some of the happier times from my past.

The Color Pink

I don’t know why the color pink just feels so natural in a bedroom. Even in my real life bedroom, the minute my ex moved out of the bedroom? I started adding pink. Maybe I’m trying to climb back into the womb. Metaphorically, of course. Although, there was this one time that I had painted my room this beautiful salmon pink, because I fell in love with Sara’s bedroom in Sweet November. Shortly there after, my friend Justin came over and I showed him my bedroom. The first thing he said was, “I feel like I just walked into a giant vagina.” Needless to say, I’ve never had pink walls again. Though I didn’t repaint that bedroom. In fact, my friend Matthew had the pleasure of painting over that pink when he took over my lease. *giggles*
However, the luxury of Second Life allows me to have pink walls one day and gray the next. I love being able to change decor and clothing with the click of a few buttons. It still might take me all day to get the job done, but at least I’m not wrestling with paint brushed, pulling my back out with oversized furniture, or wrestling with jeans that have clearly shrunk in the last few months. *look around innocently and hides her candy*

The Beauty of Art

A dear friend of mine showed me a photograph today and said it was an epic picture. It made me sad. An entire story unfolded in my head around this one photo about technology and change. I thought about how scary change becomes as we grow older. My friend thought the photo represented hope for the future along with lessons from the past. Then we both agreed that the photograph was a truly incredible work of art, because it stirred up such thoughts and emotions. We are both art lovers, but not in the uppity gallery snob kinda way. We love perusing the internet and discovering various forms of art to share, sometimes even discuss.
I found this topic quite fitting for this post, because the decor in this photo is primarily from Fancy Decor. The designer for Fancy Decor is Jake Vordun, who happens to be an avid art lover and has a soft spot for the classics. He’s not closed minded about modern art, though. He shares his finds and loves with anyone willing to explore The Vordun Museum,. There is not cost to explore the gorgeous museum and it is worth return visits as he switches out the exhibits quite regularly.
If art, particularly, various types of art is something you enjoy. I encourage you to do a quick search inworld and you’ll soon discover there is an endless array of art exhibits, as well as artists to discover in this amazing virtual world we call Second Life. That’s also why you’ll almost always find a piece of art accompanying his furniture collections.

Blanket and Magnet

It’a another Challenge to Challenge post!! First off, I have to fangirl just a bit. Exis actually gave me this challenge and I’m a huge fan of her work. If you’re not familiar with her, you must check her out! So, she gave me blanket and magnet, which worked out perfectly for this post, because of the dogs. Let the short story unfold…

She didn’t have children in the traditonal sense, but she had two beautiful female huskies that she referred to as her dogters. Blanket and Magnet were named for their behavior, as Blanket had dragged around some type of covering since she was brought home. She had quickly discovered how to cover herself with it, too. Magnet followed Blanket every where and always had to be touching Blanket or the blanket she used to cover herself. This was to be their first Christmas as adult dogs and though Sady was quite sure that her furry children had no understanding of the holiday, she wanted it to be special for them. Each day they received a special little treat from the advent calendar and each day she added more to their Christmas scene. Magnet had gotten tangled up in the lights, but didn’t want them removed. For now, Sady would allow it. She drank her hot cocoa as she reflected on the past year and everything that had happened. She looked lovingly at her girls and found gratitude that there were at least two creatures in her life that had yet to betray her.

Mary, Did You Know?

Mary, Did You Know? – Pentatonix

Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you’ve delivered, will soon deliver you
Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God
Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know
The blind will see, the deaf will hear and the dead will live again
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb
Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you’re holding is the great I am
Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know

Let’s Dance

In all my years on the grid, I’ve never been one for formal wear. I think a big part of it was that the skirts of yesteryears were so fluffy and big they often swallowed your date and not in a good way. *smirks* Like most things in SL gowns have come a long way and I have never enjoyed them more. Especially when wearing a gown like this Empress Maxi dress from Cynful. The details are incredible. It certainly doesn’t hurt to have such a handsome dance partner. *smiles*

SL never ceases to amaze me and I am never bored in this wondiferous virtual world as there continue to be adventures, new experiences, and new talent at every turn. I am so  very grateful for the amazing aesthetics that the incredible designers introduce into my world.
