There are some things in life that just have to be accepted and resign yourself to the facts! A couple things that I’ve resigned myself to is that as time passes, I’m not getting younger and that I may not be doing some of the things I thought I might get to do in my life. It’s a good thing I never planned on being a brain surgeon…I think my time for that has passed. 😀 I have to say, though, that I’ve done lots in my life that at one point could never imagine accomplishing. Heck…there were times I never thought I’d reach the age I am….you guys all know I’m old enough to remember cassettes, well…..vinyl LP’s too, actually. I’ve resigned myself to the fact that no matter how much I love music, I myself will never play an instrument or sing. Well, I do sing…just not well…I should have specified that, but playing an instrument isn’t going to happen, my fingers just don’t move that way. You know how the hands of artistic people are shaped like they’re meant for being artistic…well my hands would maybe show that I could paint like a caveman….that would be as good as it gets. I’m happy listening to and feeling the music I enjoy and I like looking at artwork and going to art galleries. I remember a bunch of posts ago I mentioned not having a bucket list…..well I lied. There are things that I still hope to do and see one day. I don’t want to skydive….why would anyone jump out of a perfectly good airplane? I’d like to go fishing in the Northwest Territories, though….. I’d like to see New York City, and I would die happy if I saw Eddie Vedder in concert. I’m not sure if any of those will happen, but I’ve not resigned myself to the fact that they won’t, at least not yet, since I’m still living and breathing!

Another thing I’ve resigned myself to is that it’s almost winter! The first snowfall of the season occurred overnight, it didn’t amount to much but the ground was fairly white this morning. Luckily it’s almost gone so we live to see another snow free day. But, with the thought of winter nearing it’s time to think about winter gear. Good warm footwear is a must have in Canada, but I carry that right into Second Life as well. My little mesh feet need warmth too! So here to help me with this is the ‘Bina Boots’ from LEGAL INSANITY. They come in seven colours with the fatpack being fully customizable and they fit the Maitreya(seen here), SLink, and Belleza mesh flat feet and there’s a pair of unrigged boots, for anyone not wearing those mesh feet. I was so excited that the leggings fit inside them perfectly! They’re available now at Shiny Shabby.

I managed to get into ~uber~ fairly early yesterday morning and I was happy to grab the new releases from Lapointe & Bastchild. The ‘Aspen Leggings and Denim Jacket’ are sold separately and only in fatpack form, but they’re so worth it. The leggings come in winter prints and ombre colours and the jacket and top have lots of colour and print options. The nice big collar on the jacket is a plus when there’s a cold north west wind blowing.

Also at ~uber~ is the G1020 hair from tram. The casual style is perfect for days when a hairstyle isn’t going to last long out in the elements.

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘mile’ tone from Avada….just a reminder that it won’t be available until November to the general public. I’m one of the lucky ones with an early preview! The skin is on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is called ‘resigned’ and it’s from Del May.

I’ve found this spot on a rooftop to really take in the views of ‘Amandia‘! It’s inspired by the Le Marche region of Italy and has a wide variety of things to do and see, with lots of areas for all kinds of photographs.

  1. Gosh, you know, I never really think like that and I’ve never had a bucket list. I’ve just let life happen. To me, everyone has their own gifts and you can enjoy your friends in that way. For instance, I love hearing about your life that’s so different to what mine has been and I adore your sense of humour – as it so matches my own 🙂

    As for me, the older I’ve got, the more I’ve found that I like life to run on as calmly as possible. I really, really don’t like change now – and I never used to be like that. But I know that if you don’t have some changes, life could stagnant and for a writer like me, that won’t do.

    Hmm, I did manage to see David Bowie in concert though at the time when he was Ziggy Stardust – and I wouldn’t have missed that for the world *laughs*


    1. Ohhh….David Bowie would be exciting, specially though those years. I’ve never really thought too much about the future. It all just happened, I’ve never had huge goals, mostly just to stay sane and do what I love to do. I’ve not always been able to do both of those…..but at this stage in life I’m in a good place. I’ve never liked change either…..but there does need to be a certain amount of it to keep the mind stimulated.

      I think I’ve always wanted to find a way to express myself and music is one that so many people can enjoy doing. I’ve always felt I had creativity inside of me with no way to let it out. I’ve become content with being able to share what’s inside of me in this blog, and I enjoy it, so this is what I do. We’d be so much fun together, Moz…laughing is the perfect medicine! 😀
