Through these city nightmares you’d walk with me And we’d talk of it with idealistic assurance That it wouldn’t tear us apart We’d keep our heads above the blackened water But there’s no room for ideals in this mechanical place And you’re gone now Through a grimy window that I can’t keep clean Through billowing smoke that’s swallowed the sun You’re nowhere to be seen Do you think our desires still burn I guess it was desires that tore us apart There has to be passion A passion for living, surviving And that means detachment Every-body has a weapon to fight you with To beat you with when you are down There were too many defence between us Doubting all the time Fearinf all the time Doubting all the time Fearinf all the time That like these urban nightmares We’d blacken each other skies
I have yet to understand why so many people want to tear each other down. Life is not a competition, no one gets out alive and nothing we acquire in this life is going with us when we leave. So, why would anyone make it their mission to seek and destroy others? What is there to gain in doing that? I mean, I know misery loves company, but why would anyone want to embrace that misery by sharing it with others or causing it? There’s nothing good to gain from that…absolutely nothing. The only thing I can imagine that allows people to behave like this is that they lack that part of the human psyche that most of us possess…that part that seeks happiness for ourselves, as well as other people. When someone lacks that empathy and compassion, they are left with a giant hole. That hole is what religious people like to call evil, but I don’t believe in evil. I believe that people are innately good….unless they are missing that inner light. They are lacking goodness. They might fake it….cuz that’s what sociopaths often do, but deep down…they just don’t have it in them be truly good. I cannot truly imagine what that must be like, but it sounds absolutely horrible. Sadly, its the only thing that makes sense to me as to why people truly want to tear one another down. I would much rather see us all root for each other and watch each other grow.
Let me put the water in the bowl For your wounds, babe Let me fill you up with the fingers of love You can’t lose babe When you watch me play, does it feel bad, darlin’ When they choose me? Say again, this place Say again, this place
I broke my neck Dancing to the edge of the world, babe My mouth is wet, don’t you forget it Don’t you lose me Here is your princess And here is the horizon Here is your princess And here is the horizon
I’ve gotta scratch it down, I never could amount That’s it, babe And now the sugar’s run out And I don’t know what to say
“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.” ― Christopher Hitchens, The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever
Lately, I’ve just been going through the motions of putting one foot in front of another. I’m faking it until I make it, you could say. This year has taken quite a toll on me, as it has most of us. I’ve counted my blessings and I promise I am grateful. However, some days putting on that happy face is a huge struggle. The holidays haven’t really helped much. Fortunately, that’s almost over for a while. I’m holding on to the hope that 2021 is a better year. I want to say that it has to be, but I think that this year has proven…repeatedly…that it can always get worse.
“Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don’t believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it’s good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.” ― Andrew Solomon, The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression

This song made think of my friend, Grace….she jokes about drinking in order to put up with her family. Now let’s hope she doesn’t kill me for this…LOL
Christmas is a time, a special time of year With peace and joy and happiness and, wonderment and cheer Opening your presents underneath the tree And spending countless hours with your family
That’s why I’m drinking drinking drinking I’m gonna drink all day I’m coming home for Christmas and my family’s insane Just got to make it through the day And there’s no other way I’m gonna get drunk, drunk, drunk on Christmas

Ok, I’ve stuffed myself with food the way you stuff a plushie at Build-a-Bear! Now, I’m ready for Christmas. No, I don’t mean the dinner, I mean the decorations. I think the delicious food makes me so complacent that I can embrace my belly and laugh right along with jolly ol’ Santa!!! In fact, I might just waddle around behind him and embrace feeling small in his shadow. *laughs* Seriously though, its always been a tradition at my house to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. I’ve never been one to decorate every room in the house. I keep the decor in the living room and dining room, maybe a little ceramic tree in the guest bathroom provided there’s room. Once upon a time, I did the whole yard and lights on the building, but I’m too old and lazy to be climbing on ladders nowadays. Okay, mostly scared and lazy, ok? I’m not the most graceful person on the planet.
I love exploring photographic sims. I’ve been a fan of the BKLYN sim since the first time I visited. It is the absolute perfect city sim and fortunately they have a group now that allows for rezzing. They didn’t the first few times I visited. Recently, that group has done up another sim called Midnight in Paris. I finally was able to take the time to explore yesterday and it did not disappoint. It looks the best if you use their region windlight. (I’m not on the whole EEP thing yet.) This sim is perfect for photography and/or a romantic little date. There benches all over the city to provide some romantic conversations and there’s even a small cafe right on the street. I recommend turning on sounds, because the hustle and bustle of the city really adds to the experience. You might even hear some cats fighting in the alley. I did. I won’t say much more, because I encourage you to visit and see for yourself.
