Nothing Specific

It’s really easy to misunderstand what’s going on with other people, especially in a virtual world. So often the message depends on the perception of the reader and unless you’re adding a bit of an emote along with your words they can be easily misunderstood and thus the drama begins. What thing is for sure, there’s plenty of that happening across the grid. I think its one of the main reasons I like to voice. I don’t like my voice, but I do prefer talking to people when I can, because the inflections of one’s voice can really can make a world of difference. I realize I’m sorta rambling on about nothing specific here, but sometimes that’s just how my mind works.

Damn Earworms!

So, as much as I’ve been trying not to do this…I woke up with this song stuck in my head and no matter how hard I tried, I can’t get it out. So, its going in this post. Damn earworms. At least its a good song. ♥

Bread ~ Baby I’m-a want You

Baby I’m-a want you
Baby I’m-a need you
You’re the only one I care enough to hurt about
Maybe I’m-a crazy
But I just can’t live without
your lovin’ and affection
Givin’ me direction
Like a guiding light to help me through a darkest hour
Lately I’m a-prayin’
That you’ll always be a-stayin’ beside me
Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Feeling all the while and never really knowing why
Lately I’m a-prayin’
That you’ll always be a-stayin’ beside me.
Used to be my life was just emotions passing by
Then you came along and made me laugh and made me cry
You taught me why
Baby I’m-a want you
Baby I’m-a need you
Oh, it took so long to find you, baby
Baby I’m-a want you
Baby I’m-a need you

Baby, I'm a want you

Good Morning

So, when I was setting up for this photograph, I was thinking about how most of us say things like, “good morning/night,” “sweet dreams,” and “have a good day.” All of these pleasantries began with good wishes from one to another. I dove into Google to see if I could find an actual beginning to this custom and I did not. However, what I did find was an amusing blog post about good morning and a thread started by what is clearly an very miserable person. So, rather than regurgitate what I read, I’ll simply share the links with you here and wish YOU a good day. ♥

  1. Cute blog post.
  2. Miserable meanie!

Do Over

As a blog manager there are times that I have to reject some absolutely amazing photographs simply because they just didn’t showcase the item properly. As a blogger, I occasionally have photos rejected. Most of the time, I almost anticipate it, but I’ll cross my fingers and hope for the best. If it gets rejected, I take my licks like a big girl and I do it over and resubmit with a new post. I’ve never argued with a blog manager or quit a brand over it, either. Though I have seen quite a few bloggers do this in the past.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could have more do overs in our lives? What I wouldn’t give to go back in time with a handful of do overs!

Watch Your Step

Here lately, I’ve found my creativity being poured into my photos, along with my heart. Though it may not always come across the viewer, there’s a spark of fire behind each one. I think I will continue to put a song with each post, but I’m going to go back to putting an embedded link at the very bottom of the post. I feel really guilty and sorta lazy when all I post is lyrics. On the other hand, I think sometimes I’m a too honest about my feelings and while I don’t know who actually reads them beyond a handful of completely amazing people, the wrong people certainly could. Thus, I’m starting to understand why Deva calls me brave sometimes. No, Deva, its called stupidity. LOL! I just know that one of these days something from my blog is going to come back to bite me in the ass. In the meantime, I’ll try watching where I step, cuz I seem to be stepping from one mess to another these days….and I advise you all to do the same.

Headache

This has been a really long week. So much has happened, both good and bad things have occurred. Regardless, it has been a stressful week. Yesterday was so intense I ended up with a pretty severe headache, that actually occurred as a result of forgetting to eat. It’s funny how we get a headache from not eating. As soon as I had a bowl of cereal it went away. Now the weekend is here and while that also delivers a fair balance of good and bad, I’m going to make the best of it, so that next week things run much smoother.

Moving On Up

I could hardly do a post about moving and not get the Jefferson’s theme song stuck in my head. I don’t have a whole lot to say about moving except that I’m glad I don’t have to do it anymore. I imagine I’ll spend the rest of my life in this condo. It’s paid for…in full. I remember moving quite a bit as a kid and all through my 20s and my favorite part of moving was unpacking in the new place. That’s the one thing I’ll miss about moving, but otherwise, I’m glad to have a place that is genuinely my home and know that I don’t have to pack up and leave again.

Gratitude Attitude

Gratitude, warm, sincere, intense, when it takes possession of the bosom, fills the soul to overflowing and scarce leaves room for any other sentiment or thought.
~John Quincy Adams

Fading Away

Sometimes aging feels like I’m fading away into irrelevance. As sweet as some of these guys in their 20s seem to be in SL, I just cannot get over the vast age difference. I know it’s Second Life and we’re just avatars and age shouldn’t matter. Maybe it’s the age that I’m turning in October that has me out of sorts. All I know is that I find myself refusing to settle for less than I desire, which leaves me alone a great deal of the time. While, I never get bored, I do get lonely. There’s something weird that happens when you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you’ve already lived over half of you life and the odds of ever falling in love again are slim to none. Time takes on a new meaning and rushes by in an instant, even when it feels like its sitting still and the entire words is frozen in place.

Lost on You

If you’ve never heard of LP, I heard you to check out more of her work. This song captures so much of how I’m feeling these days….

LP ~ Lost on You

When you get older, plainer, saner
When you remember all the danger we came from
Burning like embers, falling, tender
Long before the days of no surrender
Years ago and well you know
Smoke ’em if you got ’em
‘Cause it’s going down
All I ever wanted was you
I’ll never get to heaven
‘Cause I don’t know how
Let’s raise a glass or two
To all the things I’ve lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I’ve lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Baby, is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?
Wishing I could see the machinations
Understand the toil of expectations in your mind
Hold me like you never lost your patience
Tell me that you love me more than hate me all the time
And you’re still mine
So smoke ’em if you’ve got ’em
‘Cause it’s going down
All I ever wanted was you
Let’s take a drink of heaven
This can turn around
Let’s raise a glass or two
To all the things I’ve lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I’ve lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh
Is that lost on you?
Oh oh, oh oh
Bab, is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?
Let’s raise a glass or two
To all the things I’ve lost on you
Oh oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh oh
Just that you cold cut me loose
Oh oh
After everything I’ve lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?
