Blurred Lines

‘I love the rain. I love how it softens the outlines of things. The world becomes softly blurred and I feel like I melt right into it.’

~Hanamoto Hagumi~

Like the true introvert that I am, I do love the rain. I love to hear it on the roof, lightly sprinkling down, making me feel warm and cozy indoors. The window panes have rivulets of rain running slowly down and I look through it, seeing the world in soft muted tones, knowing all of life outside is taking in it’s life force and being renewed. To walk in the rain brings a certain peacefulness to me, the air is fresh and clean and the rain brings a coolness to my skin. The trees and grass and sky all blend into each other with the slow movement of the rain falling and it’s easy to get lost in the rich colours made darker with the wetness. As I sit here looking out my east window and see fog, hoar frost, and snow I dream of a soft summer rain. But, you know I’m a practical girl also! For the dream is but a dream and reality is more likely, it’s a drought and it hasn’t rained in a month, or it’s been raining non stop through haying season and I curse it for causing problems! I always love the rain, and always will….but sometimes Mother Nature just doesn’t know that haying season is NOT the time to send the rain!

I want to thank RH for his endless patience while I struggled to get a shot I liked. It was one of those times that nothing seemed to feel right to me and after countless poses, angles, and windlights this is what I ended up with. RH didn’t participate in photographing this pose, I think he got tired of me changing poses and he gave up to watch some TV! Thanks again, RH.

The pose is ‘Whisper My Name’ from CKEY Poses. I like the intimacy and connection it shows without being overdone!

I’m wearing the ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ from [Vale Koer] here. It’s my go-to bodysuit, perfect for any shot of my backside!

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram.

Since this is in black and white it’s hard to get an idea of skin tone, but it’s the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Where Have I Gone Wrong

‘Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, “Where have I gone wrong?” Then a voice says to me, “This is going to take more than one night.”‘

~Charlie Brown~ Peanuts[Charles Schulz]

I guess for me, this isn’t the question I’d ask the powers that be. I think it’s really cute that Charlie Brown asks it though, because how old is he? How far wrong could he have gone already? I’ve gone wrong at times in my life, no doubt! If I could change a few things, I would in a heartbeat, but would I be a different person or in a different place with a different life? I don’t know, I think everything that a person goes through is meant to get you to where you are at that moment. Like the guy in jail for robbing a liquour store can ask, ‘where did I go wrong’ but I think that answer is pretty obvious! I’m a believer that life will take me to where I’m meant to be, some decisions may be the wrong ones in regards to it being a positive or a negative experience, but it’s all meant to be like that. Looking back it’s really quite amazing to see the course of life and see all the dots that got connected to end up where I am. It’s just my thoughts… may feel the question, ‘where did I go wrong’ fitting and want an answer, but I just look at life and think it was all meant to be!

LEGAL INSANITY has a new release out for the Tres Chic event and the ‘Lily Tops’ are super cute and perfect for the coming spring and summer. They come in 10 colours, with 2 metal options, and each top has two styles, closed or open. Tres Chic runs until April 10.

The ‘Faith Hope Love’ tattoo is from Carol G Tattoo Wear. Another one of my faves that sends a peaceful and loving message. You can also find it on Market Place.

The ‘Carrie Denim Shorts’ in brown are from /erratic/. Note the cute little scarf tied to the belt loop, which is optional.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is pose 67 from .MILA..

I’m at the new to me sim, Isle of May! And I’m happy to say it’s a gorgeous replacement for hazardous, since it’s closing. I feel like I can relax and breathe here. Oh, and there’s all kinds of familiar names here, working hard on their own shots!

Profile Perv'n

Ha……I love reading profiles! Just so you know, if you see me somewhere….I’m probably reading your profile as you’re looking at me. I can’t resist, there’s so much entertainment in it, and some very creative people out there. I have to admit mine needs some work, I’ve never put much in it, but I have to change that. There are lots of profiles with no information at all in them, then there’s the all-business profiles. There’s the ‘I pledge my love to you’ picks and the links to te persons favourite sims and stores! I do read the all-business links, because I’ve found some amazing places that way, so please share those kinds of things in you profile. The ‘pledge my love to you’ picks don’t do much for me, they’re usually over mushy and I’m just not into that. I don’t think anyone has one of those for me in their profile, so I’m happy about that. But, I do show up in my sister, Gillian Galicia‘s, profile! A couple of times! The great sister that she is added me to her picks back in 2012 when I was a noob, picture and all. Then, the other day she thought our conversation deserved saving, so there I am again! But this time, when I’m all meshed up and looking good…she doesn’t add a picture of me to it! WTF, sista? So, I’m going to see what dated pic from 2012 I can come up with and I’ll jot down a few lines about our escapades in Second Life, she has managed to capture a couple of my more questionable conversation topics in her profile, so I say ‘tit for tat’, wonderful Sis o’mine!

I look a little anguished in the picture, and I didn’t set out to do that, it just kind of happened. I’ve been struggling with a downer of a mood for a few days and I guess it’s showing! But, I’m wearing the super good looking ‘Jacket Shirt Set’ that’s available at the fame femme main store. The jacket comes in 10 colours and can be worn with or without the top. The top’s HUD driven with 6 colours and the cuffs and part of the hood are also colour change with 3 options. It’s exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body, has wonderful detailing and with spring officially starting tomorrow, jacket weather is always a possibility.

The ‘DWL Classic Jeans’ from Blueberry are one of my all time faves.

The MAYU hair is from Argrace.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’m using the ‘Closed Eyes’ appliers for the Catwa heads from Izzie’s here.

You can’t really see it in detail, but the ‘Beetle Pearl Choker’ in gold is from Burial.

I was out pose shopping the other day and came across Korper Poses! I found a few packs that will easily suit my needs and they were very reasonably priced. This is from the ‘Leaning Bento’ pack of poses, which contains 6 poses with pose balls included.

I’m at Tralala’s Diner here, perched high atop the ruins!

What Do You Want From Me?

I wanted to use this title, mainly because there are days that I want to ask that of almost everyone I talk to. But, with that said, I’m not going to get into it, today. That topic is for a time that my opinions won’t be as skewed by my mood as it would be today. What I do want to mention is Twitter! I’m not hugely into it, but I follow some pretty interesting people and am continually amazed at some of the things I see there. Why I mention it today, is my love of seeing what’s trending. My favourite today is #Mathematicalsongs. I wracked my brain to think of my own take on this, but with my dislike for math and a Sunday morning brain that doesn’t want to work I was at a loss! The gist of it is taking song titles and changing it into mentioning math in some form. There were some really good ones! What I should do is every time I have no idea what to talk about in a blog post, just look at what’s trending on Twitter, and it’s a ready made topic! It’s amazing what’s going on in the collective brain of the Twitterverse! Oh look, #ThoughtsWhileGroceryShopping!

I’ve been really struggling this morning to create a picture that I was happy with, so what initially started out with me fully clothed and sitting out in the sunshine, has now become me sitting propped on a stool, naked in my bedroom! I need a little more time with the outfit from earlier, but I will get it…eventually! 😀

The thing that is sure to jump out at you is the pose! This is ‘Watch Me, C’ from Badwolf Poses. They have a really nice selection of unique poses perfect for your photography, including men’s, women’s, and couples. I’m always looking for new pose makers and between in-world search and Market Place, there’s great new talent coming along all the time.

Since I really have no outfit on, my look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram..

I’m sitting on the ‘Finsbury Stool’ from {what next}.

I Have Nothing to Say!

I’ve been working on writing this post for most of the morning now, and I have yet to come up with anything worth reading. I’ve started a couple times with thoughts that are going through my head, but either they’re something I know very little about or it’s too depressing. I found out depressing isn’t good on a Saturday morning, who knew? 🙂 So, here we sit, I have no poem or song lyrics to share. I’m all out of words of wisdom and other than sipping my coffee and thinking about what to have for lunch, I have very little going on in my brain. My RL brain is a little like my Catwa brain, it’s there…..but it’s not hooked up to anything and is really of no use at all. Heck, it may as well be made invisible and I can just carry on in oblivion!

There’s a new event on the grid, and I think it’s a very promising one! The March round of The Dollhouse still has a few days left, and included in this round is the ‘Handcuffs Collar’ from !NFINITY. It comes in black, brown, or pink, and each one is HUD driven with 3 areas to customize! It’s resize on touch, 100% original mesh, and unrigged for easy fitting. Don’t let the word handcuffs bother you, they’re very tastefully done, so you don’t need to be into the lifestyle that handcuffs are most known for to wear them comfortably. No, I’m not talking about cops and robbers! 😛

I’m wearing one of my favourite hairs from [KoKoLoReS] here. It’s ‘Pepper’ and the short style is perfect for my active lifestyle! Yea….right, maybe not so active….but it is perfect! 😀

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo is one I wear frequently and always get a comment on it’s positive message and simplicity. It’s from Carol G Tattoo Wear, which you can visit at the in-world store or on Market Place.

This is a really good look at the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. I’ve added one of the Face Mole options(available separately) to it, and I just love the detailing that gives it. I’ve also added one of the 15 options from the ‘Tiana Eye Make up’ set from Zibska. It’s from a previous Powder Pack, so I’m not sure if it’s available, which makes it so important to get these subscription boxes, it’s treasures like this that make them sooo worthwhile. I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

My eyes are from the ‘Nissa’ set of eyes from Zombie Suicide.

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