Surfing

I went on a SL date last night and we were talking about the different things we like to do in Second Life. He mentioned surfing and I realized that its one of the few things that I have never done in SL. I did windsurfing once and that was hilarious, but I’ve never actually tried surfing. So, I thought it was only appropriate that I do a surfing picture today as I’m adding this activity to my SL bucket list. Hopefully, the handsome man that took me out for sushi last  night will take me surfing someday. *smiles*

Seasonal Confusion

Well, its still hotter than hell where I live and getting hotter by the day, which is completely insane. The predicted temperatures for September 30th are 95°f/35°c!!! That’s not right!! However, Autumn is setting in over the grid and I am loving it. I am more than happy to decorate and explore, pretending that its Fall…so long as I’m at my desk. *laughs* This cockamamey weather can suck an egg! Of course, I complain about the heat, but come wintertime…while my friend, Dusty, is dealing with 6ft of snow, I’ll be sitting pretty with no ice or snow in sight. Oh it will be cold, no doubt about that, but we won’t be shoveling snow. Even if we get some, it won’t likely last more than a few hours.
In the meantime, I’ll suffer through Mother Nature’s seasonal confusion and wait for the temperature to drop. As soon as it does, I can break out my apple cinnamon candles, my cardigans, and my favorite cozy sweaters.

The Magic of Music

I believe that we absolutely can choose how we feel. It’s more than mind over matter, because this is mind vs mind, right? Have you ever heard a song that just brought you to tears? There have actually been studies done about how human beings relate to music and how our brains process it. So, if you want to wallow in your pain, by all means listen to those sad songs. And that’s okay to do. Sometimes we need to feel it deeply in order to process it. Just make sure you balance that magic with some upbeat tunes that make you smile, tap your foot, and get your moving. Music is a gift that too many of us take for granted. Embrace that magic and let music aid you in your mood of choice. ♥

The Crazy Ones

“Oh, it’s the crazy ones, the crazy ones
We’ll never forget at all
Cause it’s the crazy ones, the crazy ones
Who make our life such a beautiful mess
Woo, even the worst times were the best times
The best times ever, woo
Even the bad days were the good days
I’ll always remember, woo
And I’ll always keep a part of you
A part of me forever”
~ Paloma Faith – The Crazy Ones

The One That Got Away

“I never meant to get us in this deep
I never meant for this to mean a thing
Oh, I wish you were the one
Wish you were the one that got away
I got caught up by the chase
And you got high on every little bit
I wish you were the one
Wish you were the one that got away
Oh, if I could go back in time
When you only held me in my mind
Just a longing, gone without a trace
Oh, I wish I never ever seen your face
I wish you were the one
Wish you were the one that got away
I miss the way you wanted me
When I was staying just out of your reach
Begging for the slightest touch
Ooh, you couldn’t get enough, mmm”

Malibu

“We are just like the waves that flow back and forth
Sometimes I feel like I’m drowning and you’re there to save me
And I wanna thank you with all of my heart
It’s a brand new start
A dream come true
In Malibu”
~ Miley Cyrus – Malibu

Most of the time, I just post the lyrics and leave it at that. However, this time, I’m going to explain a little bit, because I think most people think of this song as a love song. It may have been written as one. I don’t know. What I do know, is that it isn’t a love song in the traditional sense, to me. For me, it is a song filled with metaphors and its from my heart to my friends in Second Life. My friends in this crazy virtual world have pulled me back from the edge so many times and ask nothing in return. I’m not going to break it down by stanza or line, but that’s the gist of where I’m coming from by posting this song.

Roses in the Snow

Believe it or not, this post springs from the Challenge to Challenge. Lizzy Plantagenet gave me a rosebush and snow. For this challenge, I kinda cheated, but it IS my blog afterall…lol. Seriously though, this reminded me of a song that I hadn’t thought about in ages. It’s one of those haunting songs that stays with you long after you listen to it.

Nico – Roses in the Snow

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently, you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
And you know that it was like this before we had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
Until you feel this way

With every moon
It is as though you’re getting closer to your soul
And then you go alone, and with no fear
Then you will know that it was like this before he had to go
And you will find that you were blind
Until you saw these lights
Glowing in your nights

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
But you know it was like this before he had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
If you don’t know
And there are roses growing in the snow

Crazy Weather

My friend, Adalynne, responded to my Challenge to Challenge post. She suggested snowflakes and rainbows. My first response was, “You hate me!” I haven’t been into rainbows since I was a child and they are generally associated with unicorns. I’ve never liked unicorns…ever. I thought about it for a moment then I realized she was merely referring to the weather in Alabama. You see, she lives about 30 minutes away from me and we experience the same weather. If the weather man so much as suggests snow, the stores are evacuated of all their bread, milk, and eggs. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why everyone wants to make french toast when they think there’s a snowstorm coming, but that’s what happens. What’s even funnier is that it rarely does snow and when it does it melts by noon…that’s when we get the rainbow. Thus, snowflakes and rainbows is a perfect way to describe Alabama weather. In your face, AdyCakes! *giggles*

Menus & Electric Heaters

This place didn’t have an extensive menu, but what they did have was simply delicious. It was a food truck permanently parked on a small peninsula off the coast of Achill Island What she loved the most was that they has hooked up small electric heaters between all the tables so even on a cool day like today, you could eat outdoor and be comfortable. She was especially grateful for this today as she planned to meet her dear friend, Grace, for lunch. It had been far too long since they had sat down and dished.
