Strong instinct for survival
Moving soft along the edge of time
Like a panther in the rain
With a total disregard for the rules
When pride comes tumbling off the great white stallion
You move closer to the truth
And the search continues for the meaning
They build the cathedrals high
But we keep our weapons ready
Looming dark against the sky
They’re taking down the rain forest
Changing it to a room without a view
And the big trees fall like dominoes
And we move closer
The eagle watches from the mountain
As the warriors turn into fools
And the dice are thrown on sacred ground
And they move closer to the truth
And who’s gonna tell the children
How the rivers used to flow crystal blue
And we keep leaving scars on Mother Earth
And moving closer to the truth
‘Closer to the Truth‘ ~Tony Joe White~
These lyrics are timeless and unfortunately, so very true. I have a theory, Mother Earth isn’t completely dying, what’s dying is in world as we know it. We’re leading ourselves into our own demise and I’m afraid it’s too far gone to stop. It probably won’t be in my lifetime, or even in the few generations that come after me….but eventually it will come. The human is a hugely invasive species, and if we were a plant or animal we’d be controlled at all costs because once an invasive species gets out of control….there’s really no stopping it. It’s seen every day in all parts of the world. I think there’s a lot of good people in the world trying to combat the ecological disaster that’s looming, but the ones wanting the change aren’t the ones causing it. Until they start to change the way things are done we’re on a slippery slope into oblivion! Now…..put that in your pipe and smoke it…..how’s that for a topic and a half! I’m quiet for days on end and then come out with a statement on the end of the world, I’ll now carry on with my regularly scheduled programming. 😀
couple new releases are out at the *Just BECAUSE* main store and they make for a beautiful outfit. The ‘Hannah Top’ and ‘Henrietta Skirt’ go extremely well together, both come in 26 colours and 8 prints, with the fatpack including everything or you can purchase the print pack separately. The string on the top has an on/off toggle and can be textured separately, as can the buttons on the skirt. They’re both fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.
I’m using a pose from the Pack 73 single bento poses for women from The Owl. The pack includes 4 four bento poses, all unique to each other and natural.
The ‘H0414’ hair is from tram.
And, 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 at the always interesting and completely unique sim Grauland. I’m taking a stroll alone Giant’s Causeway.
