Be There

Be There

You’ve got me surrounded,
It feels like I’m drowning and I don’t want to come up for air.
I lost everything, I threw myself in and you took me when no one was there.
Well you can take what you need, take the air that I breathe and I’ll give away all that I own.
Whatever I lose, is put back by you in a way that you’ll never know.

‘Cause I can’t be without you

I’ll be there when you need me most
I’ll be there if you’re ever alone
Together, we can grow old.
I can’t leave you
I can’t leave you,
No.

There’s no air around me, when we get this close but there’s no where I want to go.
You keep it a secret if you feel the same and leave me dying to know.

‘Cause I can’t be without you

I’ll be there when you need me most
I’ll be there if you’re ever alone
Together, we can grow old.
I can’t leave you
I can’t leave you

You’re my way out
You’re my way through
And I can’t, I can’t
Be without you
You’re my way out
You’re my way through
And I can’t
Be without you

So be there when I need you most
Be there, whenever I’m alone
Together, will we grow old? I can’t leave you
I can’t leave you

I’ll be there when you need me most
I’ll be there if you’re ever alone
Together, we can grow old.
I can’t leave you
I can’t leave you,
No.

I’m wearing the ‘Winter Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE* and is it not stunning? I feel like a Princess….I really do! The fur can be customized with 24 colours for both the dress and the fur and it’s rigged for the Maitreya, Belleza(Freya/Isis), SLink(Physique/Hourglass) and Legacy mesh bodies. It’s available now at ~uber~.

The ‘Cerys’ hair is from Truth Hair.

And I’m at Grauland for the picture….as you can see Jim’s been busy redoing the sim, again…..but I have to admit I love it this time around. The pillars and cliffs….and snow….lots and lots of snow, along with the northern lights make for lots of places for photographs. Now…..leave it like this for awhile, Jim…..please? 😀

When We Were Young

When We Were Young

We took time to see the sun
Crossing rivers as we’d run
Chasing birds down by the lake in the mud
We would climb up in the trees
Up high among the leaves
We were wild and we were free when we were young

But now we’re older
And we feel the world at our feet
As time turns we drift away
Wish we were young again

We built castles in the sand
Felt like emperors of the land
Making walls to stop the waves from coming up
We found joy in little things
Like imaginary scenes
Oh, I miss the way we were when we were young

But now we’re older
And we feel the world at our feet
As time turns we drift away
And oh how time flies
Then you realize forgotten dreams
Got lost along the way
Wish we were young again
Wish we were young again

But there’s still so much to see in this life in front of me
Like pages of a book still unturned
We could sail the seven seas
Even raise a family
We could dream just like we did when we were young

‘Cause now we’re older
And we feel the world at our feet
As time turns we drift away
And oh how time flies
Then you realise forgotten dreams
Got lost along the way
Wish we were young again
Wish we were young again

When We Were Young‘ ~Hollow Coves~

I know I don’t conform to what society says is normal, thankfully….but I do wish that I had memories of being carefree and happy when I was young. Although I do have some, what I remember most of my youth wasn’t that….it was stress and anxiety….fear and depression….but back then I didn’t know what it was. Heck, I don’t know if it was even thought about much by anyone. Everyone just did the best they could with what they had at the time……mentally, emotionally, and physically. I don’t dwell on it, I mean it is what it is and none of it can be changed……but that doesn’t mean I’d want to go back and live it all again and maybe do it differently. I’m here now…I made it this far with only a few major catastrophes along the way, but hey…isn’t that what life is……..ups, downs, and sideways? It’s all about giving yourself room to make mistakes, learn from them….and if you fall…..picking yourself up….as many times as you need to.

I’m up on a rooftop at Somewhere Else BKLYN.

Shiny Happy People

Shiny happy people laughing

Meet me in the crowd, people, people
Throw your love around, love me, love me
Take it into town, happy, happy
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Everyone around, love them, love them
Put it in your hands, take it, take it
There’s no time to cry, happy, happy
Put it in your heart where tomorrow shines
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Whoa, here we go

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Shiny Happy People‘ ~R.E.M~

Vrir and I aren’t holding hands here, but we’re out goofing around and, I tell ya, it feels good to have some fun after what the past month has been for me. We got out our winter clothes, Vrir even sporting a toque, and we’re out in the snow at Authors Point. I know not everyone calls Vrir’s head gear a ‘toque’ but when you’re in Canada, there’s no other name for it. No……it’s not a knitted cap…..and it’s not a beanie……it’s a ‘toque’. I know if I were to call it a toque anywhere other than Canada people would look at me funny, but it’s just the way we roll up here. OH…and btw…….in my little part of Canada people of my generation don’t call a ‘hoodie’ a hoodie….it has been and will always be a ‘bunnyhug’ to me!

We’re using the ‘I Got You A’ couples pose from Le Poppycock.

Be Still

Be Still

Be still
And go on to bed
Nobody knows what lies ahead
And life is short
To say the least
We’re in the belly of the beast

Be still
Wild and young
Long may your innocence reign
Like shells on the shore
And may your limits be unknown
And may your efforts be your own
If you ever feel you can’t take it anymore

Don’t break character
You’ve got a lot of heart
Is this real or just a dream?
Rise up like the sun
Labor till the work is done

Be still
One day you’ll lead
Fearlessness on your sleeve
When you’ve come back, tell me what did you see
What did you see
Was there something out there for me?

Be still
Close your eyes
Soon enough you’ll be on your own
Steady and straight
And if they drag you through the mud
It doesn’t change what’s in your blood
(Over rock, over chain, over trap, over plain)
When they knock you down

Don’t break character
You’ve got a lot of heart
Is this real or just a dream?
Be still

Over rock and chain
Over sunset plain
Over trap and snare
When you’re in too deep
In your wildest dream
In your made up scheme
When they knock you down
When they knock you down

Don’t break character
You’ve got so much heart
Is this real or just a dream?
Oh Rise up like the sun
And labor till the work is done
Rise up like the sun
And labor till the work is

Rise up like the sun
And labor till the work is done

Be Still‘ ~The Killers~

Just a simple picture today, it’s been one month since my usually very quiet life was put on hold, and it’s been a long one. I guess after this long I could say this is the new normal…..but I don’t think I’d get used to this anytime soon. The worry and stress are something I never want to call normal. But, I keep on keeping on…….and hopefully one day soon I can sit back, breathe deep and enjoy a full day without going to the hospital….. and with everyone at home where they’re supposed to be.

I made a visit to Authors Point and found a winter wonderland, how beautiful is that!

Fix You

Fix You

When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face and I
Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face and I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Fix You‘ ~Coldplay~

It’s been nearly a month since my real life got stressful and I have to admit that I’m tired. I’ve been running on adrenalyn for so long now that I’m afraid if I let myself relax I’ll end up sick or sleeping for a week straight. But, today I’m at home…….things are looking up and there’s some sunshine! I think it bodes well……at least I’ll take it as a good omen. It’s really true that a person has nothing if they don’t have their health….if you don’t have that everything else means nothing…and since I’ve been at the hospital pretty much every day this past while I see how many are struggling with just this most basic thing, and it’s taken for granted by so many. So, without sounding too preachy I’ll just add……that every day you wake up and are able to get out of bed…….and do whatever it is you do…appreciate the simple fact that you can!
