Slow Down Easy

Slow Down Easy

Slow down easy, I’ve been hauling a heavy soul
And don’t you know, honey it’s time
Slow down easy, so much trouble got a heavy toll
Take my hand, won’t you be mine

We were born homesick, the plot was understood
We put away all the worry we could keep
Maybe I’m too burdened to tremble like I should
Maybe you’re too sick to go too deep

Dissatisfaction, the tired familiar taste
Coughing up bad blood in every rhyme
Come on young savior, don’t let your fever go to waste
You got neon arms for new age crimes

Your heart’s on the table
You do what you’re able
Don’t you suffer no pain over me

Slow Down Easy‘ ~John Moreland~

Since being directed to Authors Point a couple days ago I’ve enjoyed my time there, immensely. Alone and with company. ♥

Heavy Is the Head

Heavy is the Head

Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

Black dog
Drinks from the water
Trying to cool his tongue
Like the king
Finds no peace
His work is never done
Night falls
Smoke on the water
Darkness closes in
Cold white hand, in the deep
Will drown you for your sins

It’s a lifelong expedition
Second-guessing your decisions
Trying to find out what’s been missing
Pages keep on filling

Crying out
Ooh go and wake the king
Call to arms
For those who kiss the ring
Stand your ground
The walls are coming down
It’s do or die
Do or die

Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

Mad man
Blood on the altar
The Queen will have his head
His ghosts will shake those rattling chains
Long after he’s dead
No soul knows his trouble
High upon his throne
Loved by few and judged by many
He bares that weight alone

It’s a lifelong expedition
Second-guessing your decisions
Trying to find out what’s been missing
And the pages keep on filling

Crying out
Ooh go and wake the king
Call to arms
For those who kiss the ring
Stand your ground
Yeah the walls are coming down
It’s do or die
Do or die

Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

Heavy Is the Head‘ ~Zac Brown Band & Chris Cornell~

Better Days

Better Days

I feel part of the universe open up to meet me
My emotion so submerged, broken down to kneel in
Once listening, the voices they came
Had to somehow greet myself, read myself
Heard vibrations within my cells, in my cells
Singing, “Ah-la-ah-ah, ah-la-ah-ah”

My love is safe for the universe
See me now, I’m bursting
On one planet, so many turns
Different worlds
Singing, “Ah-la-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah, ah”

Fill my heart with discipline
Put there for the teaching
In my head see clouds of stairs
Help me as I’m reaching
The future’s paved with better days

Not running from something
I’m running towards the day
Wide awake

A whisper once quiet
Now rising to a scream
Right in me

I’m falling, free falling
Words calling me
Up off my knees

I’m soaring and, darling,
You’ll be the one that I can need
Still be free

Our future’s paved with better days

Better Days‘ ~Eddie Vedder~

I woke up unsettled this morning, you know when you have bad dreams and there’s this sense that something’s not quite right in the world. My dreams were a bunch of scattered scenes, but the one that I could feel the clearest is that Eddie Vedder had died in a car accident. I know people always laugh when someone they don’t know is in a dream, but this one disturbed me….mainly because someone died. When I dream of death, no matter who’s, it’s always unsettling to me. I don’t believe EV is going to die, well….he is…..but hopefully not in a car accident or anytime soon, but it felt very real. I’m trying to shake the feeling of doom off, with all that’s been going on in my real life I don’t need to start thinking the dream means anything, it’ll just bring me down and worry me, so……..I’m going to focus all that’s good today. I’m drawing breath, the sun will rise, and there’s lots of coffee to be made. If I bring life down to those simplest of things, the days has hope!

Enchantment-The Snow Queen is open and Le Poppycock has another incredible pose/prop set. The ‘Queen Bee’ set of bento poses and bee props is pure genius! I have no idea how Olivia manages to do these bento hand poses, but the fit me perfectly and are the intricacy is phenomenal. The set consists of 8 bento poses and a variety of bee props to make the scene perfect. Enchantment runs until December 2.

I’m wearing the bento gloves from the ‘Catch Me, Bunny’ set from Blueberry.

The ‘G0511’ hair is from tram.

The rest of me is the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa.

Waiting For The Miracle

Waiting for the Miracle

Baby, I’ve been waiting,
I’ve been waiting night and day.
I didn’t see the time,
I waited half my life away.
There were lots of invitations
and I know you sent me some,
but I was waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.
I know you really loved me.
but, you see, my hands were tied.
I know it must have hurt you,
it must have hurt your pride
to have to stand beneath my window
with your bugle and your drum,
and me I’m up there waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Ah I don’t believe you’d like it,
You wouldn’t like it here.
There ain’t no entertainment
and the judgements are severe.
The Maestro says it’s Mozart
but it sounds like bubble gum
when you’re waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Waiting for the miracle
There’s nothing left to do.
I haven’t been this happy
since the end of World War II.

Nothing left to do
when you know that you’ve been taken.
Nothing left to do
when you’re begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
when you’ve got to go on waiting
waiting for the miracle to come.

I dreamed about you, baby.
It was just the other night.
Most of you was naked
Ah but some of you was light.
The sands of time were falling
from your fingers and your thumb,
and you were waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come

Ah baby, let’s get married,
we’ve been alone too long.
Let’s be alone together.
Let’s see if we’re that strong.
Yeah let’s do something crazy,
something absolutely wrong
while we’re waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Nothing left to do …

When you’ve fallen on the highway
and you’re lying in the rain,
and they ask you how you’re doing
of course you’ll say you can’t complain —
If you’re squeezed for information,
that’s when you’ve got to play it dumb:
You just say you’re out there waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Waiting For The Miracle‘ ~Leonard Cohen~

I can say that life is settling down a bit, it’s not completely back to normal but I think the risk of something earth shattering happening has past….at least I hope so. Finding peace can be difficult when nothing is peaceful, but where there’s hope, good things happen.

I’m standing in the ‘Maze Walker’ maze by Ex Machina, as soon as I saw the ad for it I knew I needed it! And of course what does any good shopper do? They tell their friends about the great things they find. I shared this wonderful find with Jim, owner of Grauland, and he got one of his own……here I am at Grauland, where there’s one for you to get lost in! The lighting possibilities are endless! Oh….btw……the ‘Maze Walker’ can be purchased right now at 6° Republic which runs until November 20.

I’m wearing the ‘Tailored Suit’ and using a pose from Hotdog.

Heal

Heal

Take my mind and take my pain,
Like an empty bottle takes the rain.

And heal, heal, heal, heal.

And take my past and take my sins,
Like an empty sail takes the wind.

And heal, heal, heal, heal.

And tell me some things last.
And tell me some things last.

Take my heart and take my hand,
Like an ocean takes the dirty sands.
And heal, heal, hell heal!

Take my mind and take my pain,
Like an empty bottle takes the rain.
And heal, heal, hell heal!

And tell me some things last.
And tell me some things last.
And tell me some things last.
And tell me some things last.

Heal‘ ~Tom Odell~
