If the dog allows it

It never snows in LA
You’d never know it was a holiday
I don’t believe that Jesus Christ was born to save me
That’s an awful lot of pressure for a baby
But here we are again, with family or friends
Some extra time to spend and I’m not mad about it
Don’t waste a dime on me, just want your company
Beside a Christmas tree, if the dog allows it
Finneas – Another Year

Worthy of Gratitude

This past year is definitely one for the history books. I could easily tear it all down and rant about all the wretched events that have occurred. I’d rather count the blessings and rejoice in the lessons. We all know what we’ve lost and there’s nothing to gain by focusing on our losses. We need to regroup and gather all that hope we had at the beginning of this year. We need to take that hope and truly visualize a better year for all of us. We have to let go of the hate, the sorrow, and the misery and move forwards with love, joy, and faith.
It’s time for us to appreciate the people that uplift us. It’s time to reach out to those less fortunate. It’s time for us to embrace the lives we still get to live. It would be so easy for me to focus on my limitations and the restrictions in my life. Instead, I choose to embrace the freedoms and abilities that I often take for granted. Ok, I can’t be on my feet for more than ten minutes without experiencing some pretty intense pain, but I CAN be on my feet for ten minutes! I can walk from one room to the next. I can walk to my car. I have rooms. I have a car. Those are blessings. I appreciate them so much. I have haters that want to post lies about me. I also, have some of the most wonderful friends I could have ever hoped for in my life.
So, that’s it. In looking at the yuck this year has delivered….if I dig deep enough, I also find some pretty awesome advantages. If you take a good look at your own life, I bet you’ll find some remarkable things worthy of gratitude, too.

Trouble for Trouble

So, for the past week or so, I’ve been learning bits and pieces about PhotoShop. I know, I know, that’s all I seem to talk about. I’ll stop after this post…maybe. *giggles* My main teacher has been the ever talented, Trouble Dethly. You may have heard of him. He’s one of the co-founders of BVN. He’s the editor of Eclipse Magazine. He’s an active blogger with a unique style unlike anyone else I’ve seen. He also happens to be the SL son of Kess Crystal, who just so happens to be my SL sister. Well, Trouble has been so kind and patient with me, despite my ancientness. *glares at Trouble* Even though I backed out of two scheduled lessons, he still agreed to help me. So, after hours of guiding me through the various steps he takes to completely edit a photo, we have come up with the shot you see here. I took the photos in SL over a week ago, but we finally broke down and edited the shot the other night. I’m so happy with the results and I’m truly blessed to have had such a wonderful instructor. Thank you, Trouble…I hope I wasn’t too much trouble…tehehe.

Decorate or Destroy

I can’t decide whether I want to decorate for a black Christmas (black ornaments, white tree, etc) or use this fantastic giant ornament as a festive wrecking ball to destroy this snowman. Decorate or destroy? THAT is the question.

Accessorize me!

Well, anyone that regularly follows me here or one of the social media platforms knows that I rarely do close ups. However, going forward I might just start. I’m super excited about this portrait I did with my limited PhotoShop experience. Thanks to my SL daughter, I was able to play with some of the Nik Collection, I tossed on a bokeh overlay I had gotten a while back and here we are…looking at my face! I’ve avoided doing much with accessories and the like, because I never felt that I could give them the attention they deserved. Perhaps there’s a future for me, afterall! Bring it on, accessorize me!!
