Both Sides, Now

Both Sides, Now

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I’ve looked at love that way

But now it’s just another show
You leave ’em laughing when you go
And if you care, don’t let them know
Don’t give yourself away

I’ve looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say “I love you” right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I’ve looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed
Well something’s lost, but something’s gained
In living every day

I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all

I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all

Both Sides, Now‘ ~Joni Mitchell~

I’ve looked at life from all sides, not just 2….and no matter how I look at it it remains a mystery to me. It goes back to the kind of age old questions like why is the earth round and the sky blue……..why are we even here! Where did this all come from and where are we going. Were we here before and will we be here again. I’d love to know the answers…….not just scientific answers, I want the weird and wonderful ‘what if’ answers. I hope there’s more to all this than just one shot at living, I hope I was here before and I’m meeting some people again after a long time apart. I hope I’ll be back, to live better, help more, and love longer. And as there’s more questions asked as time passes, just maybe there’ll be some answered too…….like why.

Just a few thoughts today, while you ponder life have a look at Liz while she smokes a cigarette and lets her thoughts wander. I’m distancing myself from her today because she insists on smoking and I’m a militant non smoker in real life…..so today Liz is on her own……she better not be smoking in the house, that’s all I can say! 😀 Anyway, the pose is from the ‘Natalia’ set of poses from CKEY Poses and exclusive to the February round of the SENSE Event. The set includes 5 bento poses perfect for the Second Life smokers. They’re all completely unique and natural, perfect for sitting in deep thought, or leisurely passing the time. The SENSE Event runs until March 8.

I’m wearing the ‘Sophia’ bustier and draped dress from Asteria, both in cream.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m laying in the shade of the Joshua trees at Grauland, here. This is a great sim for lots of sun and working with light and shadows.
