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

Are We Too Late?

We never seen a day no, never held a hand no
Found a way to feel the same
I’ve never flown for hours to make one city ours
And checked the weather where you were
I may never leave you now
‘Cause I have finally seen you now
I may never leave you now
‘Cause I’ve been waiting on your eyes to set in mine
I go ahead and fly away
I drive away my thoughts and get to you somehow
Go ahead and fly again
‘Cause everything I see you already are to me, already are to me
The world is raging out there
The wars are going nowhere, now I just want to heal you there
It might seem innocent, out of nowhere
Somehow I check the weather again
I may never leave you now, ’cause I have finally seen you now
I may never leave you now
‘Cause I’ve been waiting on your eyes to set in mine
I go ahead and fly away
I’ll drive away my thoughts and get to you somehow
Go ahead and fly again
‘Cause everything I see you already are to me, already are
I move from a corner to stand on the water
But my, are we too late? Are we too late? Are we too late?
Are we too late?
~ Tom Leeb – Are We Too Late?

Krampus & the Grinch

It’s no secret that I’m a bit bah humbug about the holidays season, mostly because its funny. I almost hate to admit that I actually have some of the best Christmas memories from my childhood that anyone could hope for. Though this entire holiday season is especially hard due to the happenings in real life, but I’m surviving it so far. Pretty sure I gained another 10lbs from Thanksgiving, though. I like food…waaayyy too much.
Anyhoo, whether you love the holidays and all that it offers traditionally or you prefer to be on the Krampus & the Grinch side of it, there’s one event on the grid every single year that never fails deliver exactly what you’d hope to find. That event is Tannenbaum and its one of three events put on by Prism Events every year. I know there’s been some drama between event owners and script writers, and I’m certainly not going to pretend to know the whole truth. What I am asking is that you not punish the designers that were already signed up for these events before the drama went public. So, if you chose a side…I didn’t…but if you did, that is certainly your prerogative…please do not punish those designers that are innocently caught in the crossfire. Besides you’ll also be punishing yourself by missing out on amazing creations. Let’s have a happy holidays and leave the differences to those that are directly involved, k? I’m wishing you all a holiday season filled with love & laughter♥

More Happiness

“You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.” ~ Tony Hawk

Naturally, for this picture, I wanted a Tony Hawk quote, because he’s probably the most well known skate boarder in the U.S. Even my 72yr old mother knows of him. Yet, this quote really hits home with me, because my best friend, Kess Crystal, recently did a poll for bloggers, then released the results in her blog, Big Blogger Questions.  I know that every blogger on the grid did not participate in the poll, but I know a fair amount did. The results were a bit surprising, but I think the biggest surprise for me was the amount of bloggers that see blogging as competitive. It was 26%!! I have never seen blogging as competitive. I’m super happy to see talented photographer fashionistas take to blogging.
I started blogging as a distraction…as a form of therapy…a creative outlet. I never looked at other bloggers and thought, “I’m going to be better them.” I used to wonder how one blogger got chosen for a brand vs a blogger that I thought did better photographs, but as I stepped into blogger management, I realized that the designers have a certain vision for how they want their brand to be represented and each has their own criteria. Some will not take on bloggers that feature nudity or curse words. Some brands won’t consider a micro blogger (flickr only). I’ve never been angry with a friend for getting selected for a brand I wanted to blog for and I didn’t. I do my absolute best to surround myself with positive and supportive people. I don’t blog for the hopes of being popular or famous in a virtual world. I do it, because I’m addicted to it. What started off as a for of creative expression and therapy, has evolved to a creative adventure and full on addiction. I’m even prone to overdosing…taking on more than I can handle and edging dangerously close to blogger burnout, but alas, I’ve been able to reign myself in and make it all work.

Quiet Lies

I’m letting the music speak for me….

Matthew Mayfield ~ Quiet Lies

You somehow see inside me
When I lay down
You steal my dreams easily
When you’re around
Quiet lies
Whisper whispered all the time
No more silent treatment
I am screaming in your ear
I’m starving stop at nothing
Til I am inside you for good
For good
Lights blurred with time
And that gray became a light
You see nothing clearly
So head strong deny the feeling
Quiet lies
Whisper whisper all the time
No more silent treatment
I am screaming in your ear
I’m starving stop at nothing
Til I am inside you for good
Ooh for good ooh for good
No more silent treatment
I am inside i am inside
No more silent treatment
I am screaming in your ear
No no no
Starving I’ll stop at nothing
Til I am inside you for good
No no no no
No more silent treatment
I am screaming in your ear
No no no
Starving I’ll stop at nothing
Til I am inside you for good
For good

Men Are Like Shoes

I just really wanted to show of these shoes and I stumbled across a song by Shania Twain that’s really cute and compares men to shoes. Not going to paste the lyrics, but you can click here and they’ll pop up. The video is at the bottom and by clicking on the photo below you can go straight to flickr for a better view.

Men are like shoes
A bit too confused
Yeah, there’s so many of ’em
I don’t know which ones to choose

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.

Pretty Promises

Pretty Promises
an original poem by Sadystika Sabretooth
He promised he’d never leave
Yet, now I’m alone
I sit in the dark with my memoies
When I was young, I was so wild and free
Now I’m locked in my head
Staring at you standing in the door
Telling me you don’t love me anymore
There’s only pieces of me left
Tucked away in a box
Like some antique photograph
Trinkets from what used to be
I can shine for a little while

Flashing my pretty little smile

Sometimes I stumble across myself
The me I was before you
The me worth loving
Before I’m smacked with the truth
That everybody leaves
Vows are pretty promises
Made to be broken
Like aged and brittle bones

Losing It

I remember the first time I saw my mom just lose it. She had spent hours making this cake from scratch, but it tilted so bad and kept sliding, no matter what she tried. Next thing I know she’s screaming and attacks the cakes with her claw like hands and cakes went everywhere. The next time I saw her lose it was when we had borrowed a VW Bug from a friend. It had a stick shift (look it up if you’re too young to know) and she hated them, the clutch would stick, too. It was the first time I heard the F word. *gasps* I think the first time I truly lost it was in high school. It was a really bad hair day and I broke my hair brush. Many times, I’ve felt like throwing all my papers in the air when writing…and once upon a time I did all my writing on paper. *giggles* Most days this is what my brain feels like…someone just threw my life in the air and I’m doing my best to grab it all and make some sense of it.

Defies the empty page,
