Stark Reality

Stark Reality

I have a bright spotlight of truth shining down upon me and it’s showing me what’s real! There’s a line in a Bob Dylan song that plays through my head and it’s something that I’ve had trouble forgetting! ‘He not busy being born is busy dying’, from the song, It’s Alright Ma(I’m Only Bleedin’)’ haunts me, knowing that this is part of the human condition and that no one can escape it! To say things like ‘make each moment count’ and ‘live like you’re dying’, while true, still has to be fully understood and accepted to mean anything! I know it’s true, I’ve said it to myself many times, I’ve told others to live in the moment but the truth is, I come from a long line of worriers and I’m not sure what I have to do to rid myself of the doubt, anxiety, worry, and sadness to live my life to the very best of my ability! One day I hope to come to that place in life, where I rise above all of my fears and learn to see the world with love and only love. I think it’s then that I’ll have found the answer!

I should have given a warning or something at the beginning of this post that it might be depressing! I rewrote that last paragraph four times, all less depressing than the one before it, and if I’d kept on I might have had a happy post! But, I can’t say that I’m in a happy place today! I’m taking a few days off from my work to rest some nagging injuries and I don’t like not being active. But, I know that in order to get healed I have to take a break! One good thing that comes with this though, is more Second Life time! I don’t often have time during the summer months to while away the days in-world! I’ll enjoy it while it lasts! And now, with further ado, lets get to the real reason why I’m here!

The July round of Collabor88 has begun and Ingenue has the super casual ‘Velma Wedges’ exclusive to the event! These shoes are perfect for strolling at the Farmer’s Market, the local sidewalk sale, or a walk down a country road! They fit the SLink and Maitreya flat feet and come in twelve fun and summery colours! They’re not your typical summer shoe, not a sandal and not quite a full shoe, they have a cute little peep toe and nice cut outs on the rest of the foot, but the little laces make it truly adorable! Collabor88 runs until August 6.

I made a visit to The Seasons Story today and grabbed the new hair from Dura! The Girls 68 hair is a perfect look for summer with it’s simple styling, it’s as easy as wash and wear! It comes in nine packs, this is from the darks! The Seasons Story runs until July 31.

Ok….hair and shoes covered, there’s not much left to talk about now! 😀 I’m wearing the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada! Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the flat feet from SLink. My nail appliers are from the HUDs from the Maitreya bento hands and SLink flat feet.

This pose is called ‘Depressed’ and it’s from Ava Allure on Market Place. I’m always on the lookout for great moody poses!

  1. *hhhuugggss* as the wise man Bob says, it’s all part of the human condition. And even if you have a strong faith you still worry. Then the trouble is that if you do worry, you are taking on those worries without solution whereas if you put them to one side, then the Divine can take over and solve the problem. This is also a conundrum and it’s very difficult to get out of it. Practical work is a good way, as you’ve found out, because at least it stops the mind prattling on.

    1. Thanks for the hugs, hugs back, Moz! Bob is a very wise man. The human condition is one thing my worries can’t solve, I know this, but that doesn’t mean I can’t try! I think Yoda would say, ‘the worry is strong in this one!’. It does help to give it up to the powers that be, I try to give up all of my worries, but I have a mind that’s always whispering to me to never forget anything that can be worried about!
