New Shoes

There’s just something about a new pair of shoes that will light up your day, provided they fit right and don’t hurt your feet. Luckily, in SL, that is never an issue. Matching them up with a new outfit is even better. Again, in SL, this is one of the simply joys you can’t always enjoy in the real world. There’s just a pep in your step that wasn’t there before.

Build a Bridge

As shocking as it might be to some, there are actually people out there that don’t like me. I know, crazy, right? I’m sure they have their reasons, but to them I say, “Build a bridge and get over it. Then burn that bridge so there’s no turning back.” My closest friends know I have no filter in either life and there’s not much I’d say behind someone’s back that I won’t say to their face. By no means do I believe that I am anywhere near close to perfect, but one thing I am is honest and straight forward. Which, by the way, makes it impossible to flirt.

As we begin a new calendar week, I want us all to build a bridge and get over it. If we’re carrying around resentments against someone…well, they’re simply weighing us down spiritually and emotionally. So, once you’ve built your bridge throw those resentments right into the water and let them go. While life is the longest thing any of us will ever do, none of us know how soon it will end. Let’s not waste whatever precious time we have left on hate and resentments. I raise my cup of coffee to you all and hope that this week is a good one for all of you.

Take the Train Somewhere

“My baby takes the morning train
He works from nine to five and then
He takes another home again
To find me waitin’ for him”
Sheena Easton – My Baby Takes The Morning Train

As much as I hate to age myself, I remember loving this song as a kid. I remember fantasizing about living somewhere near New York where one would actually take a train to commute to work. Having always been a bit of an old fashioned girl, I truly imagined myself waiting for him at the station. I’ve always loved trains, so that only fueled the fantasy, of course. As a kid, I always thought I’d live in a bigger more glamorous city, but as I’ve settled into the life I have…well, I have to say I enjoy the slow, comfortable pace of the South. That’s not to say we don’t have rush hour traffic and all the pressures of any other place, but we’ve got no trains to and from work. The only buses we have go to the welfare offices, the projects, and Walmart and they’re called Shuttles, naturally since this is the Rocket City.
I took a trip on a train as a kid, even slept on the train, but I was very little and it was in Germany so I have very little memory of it. I think I’d really like to take a real trip on a train someday…in fact, I think I’ll add it to my bucket list…Take the Train Somewhere.

Where Will the Road Take You?

I believe that all roads lead to the same place – and that is wherever all roads lead to. Willie Nelson

where will you go
I grabbed a Willie quote because the man knows about traveling. Plus, he’s a stoner. *smirks*
I’ve talked about exploring in Second Life quite a bit lately, because I’ve been forcing myself out of my comfort zone and out onto the grid. Well, last night this place came to me. I got an IM from my dear friend, Tally, asking me to come see the sim, Venta Silurum, that he and his girlfriend, Kiana, have designed.  This is after my friends Rom and Tracy had raved about it already. I was super excited and couldn’t wait to see it. Upon landing I was set loose to explore on my own accord. Can you believe no tour? They just let me wander off and find my own trouble. *winks*
Okay, I didn’t find trouble for a while, but if you look in this picture you’ll see a road and a big bridge…just across that bridge is a….No, ya know what? Go see for yourself…Where will the road take you? And don’t be afraid to wander off the beaten path. There are some beautiful surprises waiting for you.
This sim is definitely different from others I’ve seen recently. After exploring and hanging out a bit, I knew exactly what type of shot I wanted. Off I went to hit a few events before heading back for my picture. Check out all details below…
