In the stillness

“The right thing to do is not always the easiest thing to do. There may be some struggles and difficulties but in the end, you will be happy that you did what was right. If you are ever unsure of what to do, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and be still. In the stillness, all answers appear.” Paul Taubman

even if our dreams never came true

Writing when I’m content or happy has always been a struggle for me. I used to write poetry daily. It’s as if the concept of being content or happy is so foreign to me that I can’t properly describe it. I think that’s a common thread amongst artists. The songs that move us the most are the sad songs. The art that moves us the most, tend to be that that makes us uncomfortable or stirs a strong emotion from within. What is stronger than pain? So, here I am trying to find the words to express that I’m in a pretty good place at the moment. Perhaps the biggest part of that is my perception, but whatever it is…I don’t want to only write about the bad times and bad feels anymore. The world doesn’t need more pain or misery, we all need to know there is goodness out there and how to achieve it, even if our dreams never came true.

We’re made of flesh, circuit and bone

Neon lights glisten off the streets
The moonlight swallowed up by breathing electricity
Salvation hovers in the sky
Dream of a life inside while we escape just to survive
Let go, take flight
Dreams begin to reignite
So clear, so bright
We’re glowing in the dead of night
Plug in, online
The data stream linking our minds
Circuits entwined
We’ll dream of Neo-Tokyo tonight
We’re made of flesh, circuit and bone
The only world we’ve known, these empty streets we walk alone
Salvation blocking out the Sun
Beneath its shadow cast I dream with my Aphelion

For the Love of Books

In November of last year, Atelier Burgundy & Pitaya teamed up to create a bookstore gacha for Anthem. Fortunately for me, there was a fatpack option. Without any hesitation or even too close of a look, I snatched it up and sat on it for months. I knew a time would come that I would finally create a used bookstore. Well, here comes Anthem with a boho themed round for April and lucky little me, had access to Bueno’s set, as well as THOR’s. Now, get this…InsurreKtion recently invited me to join their blogging team as a VIP and there it was, sitting so pretty in Blogotex! A boho deco set!!! I knew this was it! I quickly rezzed all the things….the bookstore fatpack and all three of my boho sets. But wait, there’s more magic…Mikel Monk, the creator behind the Bueno brand, had named his couch, Kerouac!! Now, I realize there are tons of readers out there that have their own connection to Jack Kerouac, but for a while in college, I was absolutely obsessed. I even had a cat named, Jack Kerouac! I mean, clearly this was a sign, right?

I did my best to list everything in the credits, but as you can see from the photo, I used a ton of items to create my used bookstore. I was picturing one of those really cozy used book stores, that brings in a few treats first thing in the morning with a couple of canisters of coffee, but once those things are gone, that’s it for the day. They sell a variety of collectibles, new and used books, and encourage their customers to hang out.

I typed book and books into my inventory search and just started rezzing out everything. I didn’t bother trying to list every single collection, stack, and row of books, because that would have taken me all day. Let’s face it, I’d rather be reading! I did grab the names of some things, but if you really want to know a specific item in the photo, just let me know. I don’t think I’ll be tearing down this scene anytime soon. ☺

You keep yours, I’ll keep mine

I will never know if you love me
Or my company, but I don’t mind
‘Cause I ain’t tryna be the one
Been through this a thousand times
I don’t need to take your heart
You keep yours, I’ll keep mine
All I really know is when I’m lonely
I hate that I’m lonely
And that’s why I let you in
And maybe in another life
We fight all day, kiss all night
But I don’t wanna break your heart
You keep yours, I’ll keep mine
I know
We know better, so we’d both better go
I don’t need a reason
To keep on dreamin’
That we don’t lose, yeah, what’s the use?
I don’t need a reason
To keep on dreamin’, oh
That we can win at anything at all

You keep yours, I'll keep mine

Some goodies!

It would seem that I’ve been bitten by the decor bug again. I’m sure it will pass, it always does. I’ll be back to cranking out fashion pics hand over fist in no time. For now, here’s what I’m serving up today. A magical Easter feast in the park? I dunno man, I just wanted to decorate this table with some of the goodies at Bloom, okay? Why are you giving me the third degree? GAH! *laughs* Yeah, this is very much like a conversation I have with myself.
Anyway…have a good look, everything you see (except background foilage) is from Bloom or TLC (which I now own, in case I haven’t mentioned that). HA! Listen…it’s late…*looks at the clock*…ok, it’s late somewhere! All I know is that I’m tired and feeling exceptionally goofy tired.

Some goodies!

Special Place of Zen

These days, I think we’d all like a spa vacation. Unfortunately, due to the current times, that simply isn’t an option for most of us. However, I have found some tranquility by creating my own spa inworld and simply allowing my avatar to enjoy the setting, while I listen to some soft meditation friendly music. It would seem that the creators in SL have a similar idea, as I was able to use the new Urban Spa set from Atelier Burgundy & Pitaya as my foundation, then added elements from other spa sets in my collection to personalize it. There’s quite a bit that isn’t shown here, to include spring water and a mud bath, but I think this photo gives you an accurate view to grasp the idea. Hopefully, it will inspire you to create you own special place of zen. ♥

It might stop

I’m up all night online
I’m looking up my symptoms
Tell myself I’m fine
But my system just ain’t listenin’
Like ooh
This ain’t normal how I’m feelin’, no
Ooh
Running higher than a fever
When my palms start to sweat
I feel it in my stomach
This is how I get
Every time I know you’re comin’ over
Ooh
Sometimes I think that I might die with you
Ooh
It’s like I’m almost too alive with you
Ahhh
Ooh ohh ooh
Oh, it feels like
My heart’s gonna beat so fast, gonna beat so fast
Gonna beat so fast that it might stop

It might stop

Makin’ bad decisions

I am so impulsive to a fault
I want the opposite of what I got
The second I get bored, I switch it up
Makin’ bad decisions, based on temporary thoughts
I know they say there’s greener grass
For me it’s never about that
The second I get bored, I switch it up
Makin’ bad decisions, based on temporary thoughts
My favorite hobby, self-sabotage
Can’t never seem to make my mind up
Change my opinion more than my socks
Let me tell you about the time I took my friend out the friend zone
‘Cause I felt so sad, sleepin’ alone
Then I put him right back, just like that
‘Cause I missed bein’ by myself
