Cutting back

Cutting back on the number of stores that I officially blog for is one of the hardest things for me to do. Choosing which stores to stay with and which to let go of can simply do my head in, but its part of what I have to do if I am to remain a responsible blogger. It’s my duty to do my best for each brand I represent and the minute I know that is no longer possible, I have to face the truth and cut them loose. It’s heartbreaking to say the least. Especially when I have been with a brand from the beginning. However, as I continue along my blogging journey I evolve just like everyone else. My tastes change, my style changes, my feelings change and thus my blog changes, as well as my photos.
The important thing for me to remember is why I blog in the first place. I blog for me, first and foremost. I blog for the therapeutic value and the creative outlet. The past few months, I’ve discovered that’s all I do. I log in to SL simply to blog and I work. I love both, but there has to be more. SL is not a job, nor do I ever want it to feel like one. I love the jobs I have and I love my blog. I love the stores that I represent and those I’ve had to part ways with over time. I have never blogged for a store that I didn’t believe in nor will I.
It’s time for me to find room for more than blogging and work in my Second Life. That’s why I had to resign my position from a total of 9 stores and events this past weekend. *sighs* I only hope the brands know how difficult the decision was and that I will always be grateful for the opportunities afforded me while blogging for them.

Making someone disappear

I think its about time that we start calling some of these people on their bullshit. No, I don’t mean our friends. I mean these bozos that crawl into our IMs with pictures of their dicks or other unwarranted crap. I saw we call them out on the spot. Answer their IMs in local…oops! *grins* I think they will disappear like magic! Better yet, maybe they’ll get upset and call us names…that seems to be a popular defense to rejection. You won’t fuck me so you’re a whore. *laughs* That makes soooo much sense. People are dumb, we have to be smarter. Killing them with kindness sometimes works, but rarely. I think its more fun to play dumb. If they’re stupid enough to send that kinda garbage to a stranger, they will surely believe we’re as dumb as they are. Meanwhile, we get to have some fun! Just a rando thought that crossed my mind as I sat down to write about magic and what tricks I’d like to perform. I think making someone disappear would be pretty awesome.

Time to Liberate

“Four walls like a prison
Feels like another victim
Something’s wrong
Something’s missing
You scream when it hurts but there’s nobody listenin’
Gettin’ sick of going psycho
Burnin’ quick, a downward spiral
Not a slave or an animal
Someone break me out this cage
It’s time to liberate
From everyone who loves to hate
From everything that’s makin’ you live the lie
Don’t you think it’s time to twist your fate
Liberate”

Pay Phones

Alright, all you millennials gather round, I’ve got a story to tell you. Go on, get comfy, this is going to blow your mind. Is everyone ready? Alright, let’s proceed…Tracy you are not a millennial put your damn hand down. Grace, just sip…erhm…guzzle on your vodka and shhhhhh…good girl! Yes, you can drink wine, Kess….ffs, okay, gin. Will you cunts settle down? YOU ARE NOT MILLENNIALS! Okay, ready? Let’s begin…*giggles*
Once upon a time, a very not so long time ago, there were these strange boxes found at gas stations across the country. They were also found at shopping centers, malls, schools, and so many more businesses. They were called pay phones. Brace yourselves…there was no such thing as a mobile or cellular phone. There were pagers, but that was mostly for doctors and drug dealers. Then for several years everyone had pagers….and THEN cell phones came around, but even then the costs were extremely high. Every once in a while, if you keep your eyes open, you might just see one of these ancient relics….*swats Emily’s butt*…NO! Not people like me! Pay phones, Emily, jeez! Well, there you have it, boys and girls. If you’re ever stuck out in the world without your cell phone….if you can find one of these…you might can still make a call. Oh, but you’ll need some loose change.

Library

“A library is never — for lovers of the written word — simply a place for conserving or storing books but rather a sort of living creature with a personality and even moods which we should understand and learn to live with.” – Francisco Márquez Villanueva

As long as I can remember, I’ve loved books. Yes, I love to read, but its more than that. I love possessing books. I love the smell of them and the feel of them in my hands, the pages between my fingers. I love the energy and smells of bookstores and libraries alike and each has their own individual scent. Books are like magical portals to another world and when a story really pulls you in…that collection of paper and words truly transports me so far away that it is one of the greatest escapes in the world.
I love this quote, because its just so damn true. Whether a small collection of books or an entire room or building, the titles and authors on display truly come together to create a personality of its own, not to mention a reflection of the keeper of said books.

don't over complicate it

What if…(Arranmore)

Yep, I’m up to the ole “What if…” scenario again. Let me explain how this one happened. I put together the outfit, loved it, wore it out a few places, came home to take pics, decided to go out into the world to take pics, landed at Arranmore, saw the crow, giggled at how closely Arranmore is to Nevermore, and I was off to the races! See? Tha’ts all perfectly logical, right? (Just nod, humor me here.)

old-crow-cover

So, what if it was the crow that sat upon a tombstone outside his favorite church on a Friday night, ya know, just minding his business…what if he was the one visited by this mysterious blonde woman? Perhaps her size is intiimidating to him so he freezes in place. She comes very close and looks him in the eyes. He’s so petrified his fight or flight responses shut down and he’s frozen in place, unable to move. What if he’s so moved by the visit he enlists the help of a woodpecker to record the event?

old-crow-2

  Ah, distinctly I remember it was a Friday night in November;
And I rest upon a tombstone, encouring its ghost to appear.
    Eagerly I wished the morsel or a meal;—vainly I had the ground for worms to steal
    From the garden entrance came a lady—blonde, wearing black..her name was Sady—
For the rare and radiant love of the cemetay floor—
            Nameless here for Arranmore.
Ok, I should never mess with anything by Edgar Allan Poe and I am somewhat ashamed of myself, but I’m equally amused. And given how his mind worked, I somehow think that ole Edgar and I would’ve gotten along just fine. So, I’m just going to rape his poem for my blog and hope he’s okay with it. If not, perhaps he can come and let me know, afterall…ghosts can travel, right?
So, the most important thing for you all to know about the stuff I’m wearing is this! The name of the skirt is Sady!!! That’s right! Why yes! It is named after me! Coincidence? NOPE! It really is named after me! Can you believe it? And its gorgeous!! So, go to the mainstore and get it so that you can say, “Sady is on my ass!” Plus, c’mon, its super freaking cute, right??? (Just nod and go get the skirt, you can stare at my butt later! Gaw!)

Feline Frisky

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
Robert A. Heinlein

feline frisky ground

This quote makes me giggle, because I have three cats in real life and one dog. However, the cats are all boys and the dog is female. Which leaves the human man in the house a bit outnumbered. LOL. There’s an abundance of attitude and demands going on around my house, not to mention the Chaos and Mayhem…those that know me will catch that little joke. Two of my cats are 6 1/2 month old brothers appropriately named, Chaos and Mayhem. These two burst to life at the two regular bedtimes in my house…midnight and 6 am.
feline frisky roof top
They are indeed the epitome of asshole cats. They will stare me straight in the face as they begin knocking things off a shelf or table, knowing their little feline paws are faster than my human legs and my shouting, “STOP!” is an exercise in futility. Just like cats choosing to do what they want. when they want…I will readily admit I am much the same way. Most of my female friends are, as well. So, for any fellas out there that might happen to be reading my blog…sit back and relax, we got this. *purrs*

So, some of the goodies at The Epiphany inspired this post…from the Concrete Jungle gacha that unKindness has created to the delightfully wicked Energy set that Blueberry has taunted us with and there’s just so much more…you’ll be sure to see plenty more of my Epiphany goodies in the upcoming posts. Afterall, one does not assemble an entire city and not use it for lots of amazing photos, right?

Everywhere I Look

“Imagination is the true magic carpet.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale

Isn’t that true? Especially in a virtual world like Second Life where we’re not only allowed but encouraged to push beyond the boundaries of our own imaginations. I’m continuously amazed by all the beauty I encounter in this virtual world. From beautiful clothing, to furnishings and decor…and best of all, the places people build to share with the rest of us. Whether is an RP sim, a game experience like the ones from MadPea, clubs, homes, or places designed specifically for exploring.

Lately, I’ve taken that same awe in wonder that I find myself with in a virtual world and looking at the real world in similar ways. It really is an incredible world we live in, whether looking at nature, man-made structures, or even destruction…there is beauty and awe to be found at every turn if we simply open our minds and take a good look.

While that really has very little, okay, nothing to do with my look here…I will say that I took these pictures on the stage area of a new club called Dante’s Inferno. I love this little place. Its beautifully decorated and the owners have been genuinely welcoming…that’s been my experience anyway. I encourage you all to open your eyes in both worlds and look with your heart at all the wonders surrounding us. ❤
