Cozy Up For the Night

I’ve been soo crazy busy lately that I’m just now getting around to blogging this adorable set from Hideki that you can grab at TLC for a few more days. It closes on the 10th, after that you’ll have to check his mainstore. This set is so cute and even my photo doesn’t do it justice. However, I couldn’t help but want to make a man cave that the girl took over….so here it is with lots of pink pieces from one of Bamse’s new sets to be found at the October round of Arcade. What better way to enjoy this room than relaxing in a comfy shirt from Vinyl, paired with some super cute sweats? A girl can watch just about any scary movie with her trusted pup beside her, right? And thanks to some pieces from Kraftwork’s new set (also at the Arcade), I was able to set the tone of horror movie night. So, I’m all about horror films in October…and honestly, I’m so obsessed with this scene, I just wanna crawl directly into it and cozy up for the night.

But then you read

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.” ― James Baldwin

My Dramatic Take

This is my thought process brought to life…okay, pixels! GAW! Ok, so sometimes I take a picture with nothing in mind to write about and lately….as I’m sure you know…I’ve been struggling with topics to write about, because my life is uneventful, okay? So, I rack my brain sometimes trying to think of something to say. When I was looking for poses to take this picture and saw this one, I giggled. I thought, that’s me when I’ve got writer’s block! So, there you have it…its short and sweet…but here’s my dramatic take on my own writer’s block hell. *grins*

Kiss the Sky

“Purple haze, all in my brain
Lately things they don’t seem the same
Actin’ funny, but I don’t know why
Excuse me while I kiss the sky”
~Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze

kiss the sky_003

I’ve written before about lyrics being misunderstood or misheard. Purple Haze is one of those songs for me. I was one of the many that thought the song said, “Excuse me while I kiss this guy.” Its funny now, but it changes the song completely and what the song meant to me for many years. I think the most amusing thing I’ve read about this song is that he wrote this song after having a dream about a purple haze engulfing him while he was underwater and that Jesus saved him. Ironically, most people think the song is about drugs…LSD trips to be more specific.

kiss the sky3

I love that music can inspire people in so many ways. I think Second Life is like that, too. We came to SL for a variety of reasons and I always think its interesting to find out what and who brought people to SL. My real life friend, Jenni, brought me to SL…we won’t talk about her master plan to get rich and how quickly that failed. Let’s just say that three months later, she had left SL and I had begun to meet people that would forever alter the course of my life.

I am so grateful for the Second Life community and the boundless friendships that I’ve cultivated across the grid…around the world. I am grateful for the creative outlet allowed me through blogging and photography. Most of all…well…Excuse me while I kiss this guy.

Artists Do It Better

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary …

Simple Definition of artist

  • : a person who creates art : a person who is skilled at drawing, painting, etc.

  • : a skilled performer

  • : a person who is very good at something

I’ve always struggled with calling myself an artist for the simple fact that I never felt that I was all that “skilled” at anything. Whether its writing, drawing, painting, photography…I’ve just never had that much confidence in my own “work.” Even now, I use a lot of quotation marks when referring to myself and things I’ve done. Like most people, I am my own worst critic.

However, there are those that would argue that anyone that creates something of an artistic nature is an artist. In that case, I guess I could be considered an artist. All I know for sure is that I am definitely creative. Whether or not I create something that others will enjoy is not for me to say. One thing is for sure, there are some truly incredible artists in Second Life and its evident in their beautiful creations as you can see below. ❤
