Holding Out For a Hero

I couldn’t help but use a song with this picture. Its just been on my mind a lot lately and I’m pretty sure it influenced my photo.

Ella Mae Bowen ~ Holding Out For a Hero 

Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the Gods?
Where’s the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong, he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be larger than life, larger than life
Somewhere after midnight in my wildest fantasies
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There’s someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder end rising with the heat
Isn’t there a superman to sweep me off my feet
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong, he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be larger than life
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I would swear that there’s someone somewhere
Watching me
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the raging flood
Oh his approach is like the fire in my blood
I’ll need a hero
And then we’ll dance till the morning light
Dreaming he’ll lead, he’ll tight tonight’s the night
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong, he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure, he’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life, larger than life
Larger than life, larger than life
Oh baby, baby
Baby, tonight

Can They Truly Be Separate?

I’m a big profile perv. I love to see what people share, how they talk, or whether they’ve decided to keep it blank. Either way, I tend the find the 1st Life tab the most interesting, as so many will put something about keeping RL separate from SL. I assume they mean that they prefer to keep the details of their real lives a secret and quite possibly their second lives are a secret from those in their real lives, as well. However, I am always left wondering does anyone truly believe that its possible to keep them entirely separate?
Isn’t the real you the one typing on the keyboard? Isn’t every thought you share in SL coming from the brain (or lack there of) in your real life head? Don’t you dress to appeal to yourself? How is it possible to be so completely separate unless your entire existence here is a complete and total lie? Even then, you are bound to have a few honest thoughts slip through the cracks. Even a catfish tends to share some truths about themselves.
I suppose its not really important. It’s just something I wonder about from time to time and always makes me look at the people that write that as kind of odd. Why do you need to announce to the world that you’re keeping a secret? As a person with major trust issues, it tends to make me leery of them regardless of their intent and pull away.

Topless & Barefoot

There’s this reoccurring dream that I’ve had since I was in middle school and I continue to have it to this day. The location varies, but the situation is always the same! Somehow or another I’m stuck in a public place with no shirt and no shoes! Naturally, I’m filled with a sense of shame and embarrassment. I cover myself the best I can and run to hide, hoping someone will save me from my nudity. The funny thing is that no one else ever seems to notice. There’s no one pointing fingers and laughing. There’s no one asking me what happened to your clothes. There’s just me trying to be invisible and apparently succeeding, but unknowingly. I almost always wake up frantically grabbing at the sheets. *laughs* I asked a few friends if they ever had this dream, as I thought it was rather common, but none of them have admitted it. So, I’m either a weirdo or there’s some psychological reason for it. Hmmmm. Oh, yeah, that’s right, I’m a weirdo!

Just Breathe

“Wish I was small
In sunny days
A summer light breeze
Could lead me further”
The White Birch ~ Breathe

Sometimes life delivers me some rather low and sudden blows. Its times like these that I want to either curl up in a ball in the comfort of my bed, wrapped in the familiarity of my blankets, pillows, and dreamless slumber…or I want to run as far from the world as possible…to the edge of nowhere and just feel the comfort of the sun on my skin…a warm breeze caressing my flesh. As beautiful and wonderful as the world of Second Life can be, sometimes even here there is no solace from the harsh dark clouds hovering over me in the real world. Despite the fact that logic tell me, “this is temporary” and “this too shall pass.” Sometimes I cannot help but be swallowed up by the overwhelming desperation swirling like the madness of a tornado in my mind. Try as I may, I cannot always beat my demons with the rational of optimism and logic. Some days its all I can do to just breathe.
