Take One Day Away

“Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
― Maya Angelou, Wouldn’t Take Nothing for My Journey Now

The Clearest Summer

“Another secret of the universe: Sometimes pain was like a storm that came out of nowhere. The clearest summer could end in a downpour. Could end in lightning and thunder.”

Thank you, Sassafrass ♥

Recently I wrote about cutting back on decor blogging. Yet, now that Sassy has been helping me, it has become one of my favorite things to do again. Not just creating a scene, but the back and forth that she and I have while working on it together. I never imagined I could click with someone so well in regards to decor. It just seems like a solo project. Yet, she has the most brilliant ideas and they feed right off of mine. We cut up sooo much while doing, too. We did this entire scene in one hour! Its been a long time since I’ve had this much fun creating blog scenes. I suspect my readers/viewers will be seeing a lot more of her and her work. Thank you, Sassafrass♥

Love for Kitchens

I’m pretty sure that I’ve previously mentioned my love for kitchens in Second Life. I honestly don’t have tons to talk about this morning, but if you are ever looking for great ideas to elevate your kitchen I can recommend so many stores to gather items from…no matter what style you’re looking for. Pictured below are just a few of my favorites, but honestly, there is sooo much more out there and its all wonderful. So, stay tuned, cuz whether I cut back on decor shots or not….kitchens and cozy corners will always be something I blog whenever the opportunity arises.

So, I wanted to make a complete scene, inside and outside, because these items just kinda flowed together…at least in my mind. Below each picture there’s a set of credits that pertain specifically to that photo. I don’t know if I’ll do this again, but y’all know me…I like to experiment from time to time. *grins*

Losing Track

While putting this room together, I was just imagining how amazing it would feel to sink down into this superbly comfortable looking chair from DaD with a good book, some hot tea, and a light snack. Settling in for a nice afternoon with the sunlight streaming in the windows, reflecting off the crystals in the light…the little lights twinkling as the sun goes down. I can easily see losing track of time in a place like this. While I might not have room for a space like this in real life, I can live vicariously though my avatar as so many of us do. I wonder what kind of non sexual fantasies other people bring to life in Second Life. I’d love to hear about yours if you care to share. ♥

Taking some time

For the first time in almost four years of blogging (March will be 4yrs) I have requested a vacation from about half the brands that I officially blog. I chose them carefully, as they had deadlines and/or their rules are a bit more strict about how they want their items showcased. I have no issue with any of that, of course, but I want to take a few weeks to relax and learn. My very handsome nephew, Trylan aka Trouble Dethly, has promised to teach me some tricks in photoshop…as have a few other amazing bloggers and family members.
Hopefully, you’ll see some improvements in my photos and when I completely return to my full time blogging, I will have a brand new approach to my pictures. It’s time for me to take a step back, relax, regroup, and rededicate myself to my craft. I absolutely love blogging and I won’t be stopping at all, but I am going to slow it down. When all is said and done, I may decide to cut back…who knows? I might finally commit to a genre or a style…*gasps*…yeah, don’t hold your breath on that one. I’m looking forward to spending some productive and entertaining moments with members of my SL family…with my blogger friends…as well as my other friends. I’m going to focus less on being lonely and more on being fulfilled.

Cherish one another, please.

I’ve spent the majority of my adult Christmases alone. This year won’t be very different. It’s not a great feeling and its one I wish no one ever had to feel. It can be absolute hell for some and the darkest of hours for others. I’m not suggesting that anyone hover over their friends, but please…if each of us take a moment to reach out and wish each other a good day…offer a shoulder if needed or able…a silly little joke…something personal. Not just a generic, “hey, how are you?” Ask something that requires them to think of an answer, not give you that auto pilot reply, “I’m fine.” If we all do this for one another, we will remind one another that we matter….all of us matter. Be kind and grateful to one another and for one another. There are no guarantees that they will still be part of our lives next year. Cherish one another, please.

Clean Breaks

I’m not sure what it is about the holidays and the new year that pushes people forward…to make hard decisions and stand by them. Perhaps it has more to do with New Year’s…New Year, new me, new resolutions. We all make some sort of resolutions in the new year. We might not declare them with punch drunk pride, but inwardly I think most of kind of vow to do better. It’s a time for clean breaks and fresh starts. So, to all of you ripping off those painful but long overdue bandaids….Here’s to making the hard decisions and all their consequences. *raises a glass*
