Where Will the Road Take You?

I believe that all roads lead to the same place – and that is wherever all roads lead to. Willie Nelson

where will you go
I grabbed a Willie quote because the man knows about traveling. Plus, he’s a stoner. *smirks*
I’ve talked about exploring in Second Life quite a bit lately, because I’ve been forcing myself out of my comfort zone and out onto the grid. Well, last night this place came to me. I got an IM from my dear friend, Tally, asking me to come see the sim, Venta Silurum, that he and his girlfriend, Kiana, have designed.  This is after my friends Rom and Tracy had raved about it already. I was super excited and couldn’t wait to see it. Upon landing I was set loose to explore on my own accord. Can you believe no tour? They just let me wander off and find my own trouble. *winks*
Okay, I didn’t find trouble for a while, but if you look in this picture you’ll see a road and a big bridge…just across that bridge is a….No, ya know what? Go see for yourself…Where will the road take you? And don’t be afraid to wander off the beaten path. There are some beautiful surprises waiting for you.
This sim is definitely different from others I’ve seen recently. After exploring and hanging out a bit, I knew exactly what type of shot I wanted. Off I went to hit a few events before heading back for my picture. Check out all details below…

Let it Rain

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. Langston Hughes

I think that gentle storms are one of Mother Nature’s most beautiful gifts. Replenishing the earth and all its inhabitants. Some of my best and favorite moments happened in the rain and the right rain will bring every one of those beautiufl memories pouring over me as if they happened just yesterday. I’m sure you don’t want to hear about all of them, but I may write about them some day. This isn’t the first time I’ve had a post about rain. Honestly, I don’t have a whole lot to talk about at the moment, because I’ve got so much stress on me in the real world right now…I’m finding it a little difficult to focus.

However, I was perusing  facebook & flickr earlier when I noticed that my friend Joe had posted a new pic and it was gorgeous. Clicking his handy little link led me to a new favorite sim and I could not resist taking a few photos. I had already decided I wanted to blog this look, so finding something to wear? No problem, just a quick change of the hair and I was all set. I finally settled on this particular photo as my favorite, but I can’t wait to go back and take more. I absolutely love the artistic vision that’s gone into this beautiful place and I do hope you’ll go check it out for yourself. Naturally all the details for my outfit are below, as well as the pose and the link. Enjoy!

Sady and the City

A great city is that which has the greatest men and women. Walt Whitman

I realize I have already blogged about Elysium City of Templemore, but if you’ve been there you understand my enthusiasm and if you haven’t you should go soon. After only one visit you will surely share my excitement. As my dear friend, Grace Sixpence, so eloquently put it, “OMG! Everytime I’m here, I discover something new!” The same has been true for me. There is so much to see and explore, you could spend hours there and still discover something new. As if the scenery isn’t enough to draw you in…they present some of the absolute best live musicians on the grid quite regularly. A great way to keep up with what’s going on is to like the official Elysium City of Templemore Facebook page.

Sady and the City (back)

After shopping at Shiny Shabby, I knew exactly where I wanted to take my photos to present some of my latest finds. What I didn’t know is that I’d run into some of my good friends that were already there exploring or that I’d discover two new spots to shoot my photos. Okay, I actually discovered four, but only used two for this post. *giggles*

Sady and the City

I could gush on and on about this location, but I really want to encourage you to go check it out for yourself. Its truly beautiful and I am so grateful for all the hard work that went into it. I’m especially grateful that the owners have such a generous spirit and are willing to share this amazing paradise. It proves the quote by Walt Whitman, because this city is truly founded and fueled by great people.
