Sunshine

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Be happy that you have a lot to lose.

You never really know where tidbits of inspiration will come from….or wisdom, for that matter. Year ago, I was complaining about days and days of rain. My friend smiled and said, “Rain makes things grow.” I have never forgotten those words or that moment. This morning, I was watching a sitcom and this lady was freaking out because she was worried about this and worried about that. She was taking an inventory of all the things she had lost over the years. Of course, someone told her to look at everything she has to be grateful for. Someone else came along and told her, “Be happy that you have a lot to lose.”
This got to me, cuz I took a look around at all that I have and easily it could be lost. I decided to give my gratitude list a make over to include all the things I’d hate to lose and be happy that I have so very much to lose. I think it would do a lot of people some good to look at things this way. So, instead of focusing on the shit that’s gone wrong or the things you’ve already lost…let’s be happy that you have more to lose and work on being grateful for what we still have. ♥

Be happy that you have a lot to lose.

I don’t take any regret

I take as much as I can get
I don’t take any regret
I close my eyes to conjure up something
But it’s just a faint taste in my mouth
I think I’m coming down
I think I’m coming down
By tomorrow I’ll be leaving
By tomorrow I’ll gone
If you want to tell me something
You had better make it strong

I don't take any regret

It’s all about Equal10!!

It’s all about Equal10!! Well, this post at least. I’ll readily admit that I am an event junkie! I love seeing designers from all over the grid all bringing out their latest and greatest in one place. Don’t get me wrong, I love some mainstore releases, too. Let’s face it, I love shopping! The thing about events, for me, is that each event usually delivers a certain flair. Equal10 has quickly become one of my favorites, because more often than not, I can count on at least three or four of my favorite stores to be presenting. This round is most definitely one of those. I did my best to squeeze in as many of my favorites as I could straight away. I mean, look at the list of credits! I love what I’m wearing. I love the pose. I love my surroundings.
I actually really love this photo and how it turned out. *winks at her haters* Yes, I used bokeh and an overlay. I know its not perfect and I’m by far no expert photographer or editor, but if you can’t love your own work….how can you expect others to like it? Naturally, with me loving the photo so much, it will probably do poorly on Flickr as that seems to be the trend when I really like a photo. *laughs* That’s just the way the Flickr cookie seems to crumble. The real point of this photo is to show off all the insanely good creations that the designers have shared with us at reasonable prices.

It's all about Equal10!!

Snowdrops

My sister, Kess Crystal, opened her winter sim today. It might seem a tad early to some, but in plenty of places around the world…the snow has been on the ground for a while. This sim is absolutely gorgeous and I highly encourage you to check it out. There’s actually activities on the sim, as well. I’m not going to tell you too much about it, because honestly I want you to go check it out for yourself. I know I’ll be coming back to ice skate on this gorgeous ice skating area behind me!

Politically Correct

“The wolf said, “You know, my dear, it isn’t safe for a little girl to walk through these woods alone.”

Red Riding Hood said, “I find your sexist remark offensive in the extreme, but I will ignore it because of your traditional status as an outcast from society, the stress of which has caused you to develop your own, entirely valid, worldview. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must be on my way.”

The time’s not near, it’s here

When the world is laughing at itself, all she can do is cry
But when the world is scared and crying out, she laughs fearless inside
‘Cause she believes ’til she can see
Floating freely, breathing easy over stratospheres
Eternity throws glory, stars redeeming all the years
Do you believe and will you dream
Turning the pages
Open these cages
Quiet days we can hear this sound
Heaven’s throne in the earth come down
The decree’s out now
Never been so loud
Making way for the undoing
Of the death in everything
The decree’s out now
Never been so loud
The time’s not near, it’s here
A holy fear is here
It’s here

Chasing Fireflies

If you see me floatin’ too many times
My face will be painted in these white brick lines
‘Cause all my fear’s invading
All the crazies put on buses and sent up here to find you
Livin’ on the limits
And if you say goodbye too many times
The sentinels will find me and switch me off this time
‘Cause all my fear’s invading
All the crazies put on buses and sent up here to find you
Livin’ on the limits
All you ever get from the sonnet is the count of the falling men
Every calling cost made to your heart
You were in the kind of game that put the force in me
I was ever chasing fireflies
Sometimes I follow a firefly
It takes me into the night
Baby, I just survive
I’m love drunk, I’m sorry
Am I losing you?
Sometimes I follow a firefly
It takes me into the night
Baby, I just survive
I got drunk, I’m sorry
Am I losing you?

The colors are fadin’ out

The colors are fadin’ out
Is it quiet where you’re sleepin’?
Your records, my empty house
I wish I knew what you were feelin’

Fightin’ every instinct while you hold your pride
Back to the beginning, it swallows my mind
You’re all that I think about
I even see you when I’m dreamin’

I wish that I could hate you, ah, baby
I wish that when I left, you’d of chased me
I didn’t wanna change, but you made me
Now you’re tellin’ all your friends that I’m crazy

Hard to believe that you ever really loved me
I made believe that you cared when you touched me
I know I’ll be movin’ on
In slow motion

Closing this chapter

Well, so long, Genus. I’m not turning my back on you because of the dmca or any of that. I have a new head now and I will be featuring it soon. For now, I dedicate this post to the look I grew to love very much while wearing this head. I absolutely adore the look of the Genus heads, but the huds frustrate me to no end and I never can get the neck quite right with the legacy body. So, one final close up as I close the chapter on this look. I will always love the looks I achieved with Genus, but its time to embrace the new.
