Lonely Looking Sky

Lonely Looking Sky

Lonely looking sky, lonely sky
Lonely looking sky
And bein’ lonely
Makes you wonder why
Makes you wonder why
Lonely looking sky
Lonely looking sky
Lonely looking sky

Lonely looking night, lonely night,
Lonely looking night
And bein’ lonely
Never made it right
Never made it right
Lonely looking night
Lonely looking night
Lonely looking night

Sleep, we sleep
For we may dream
While we may
Dream we dream
For we may wake
One more day, one more day

Glory looking day
Glory day, Glory looking day
And all it’s glory
Told a simple way
Behold it if you may
Glory looking day
Glory looking day
On lonely looking sky

Lonely Looking Sky‘ ~Neil Diamond~

I’m safe at home, but even for an extreme introvert like I am, it’s getting a little old. But there’s no way I’m venturing out unless it’s absolutely necessary, so I spend a lot of time getting lost in a book. It’s the perfect escape in these troubled times. Please stay home, everyone…..be good to each other…..and stay safe.

I’m using one of the poses from the ‘Booklovers’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.

The Times They Are A-Changin

The Times They Are A-Changin

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don’t criticize
What you can’t understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin’
Please get out of the new one
If you can’t lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin’

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin’
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’

The Times They Are A-Changin‘ ~Eddie Vedder~

More relevant now than ever before.

Grauland has undergone another change…….and it’s one of Jim’s best designs.

Times Like These

Times Like These

I—I’m a one-way motorway
I’m the road that drives away
Follows you back home

I—I’m a street light shining
I’m a white light blinding bright
Burning off and on

It’s times like these you learn to live again
It’s times like these you give and give again
It’s times like these you learn to love again
It’s times like these time and time again

I—I’m a new day rising
I’m a brand new sky
To hang the stars upon tonight

But I—I’m a little divided
Do I stay or run away
And leave it all behind?

It’s times like these you learn to live again
It’s times like these you give and give again
It’s times like these you learn to love again
It’s times like these time and time again

There’s 2 new main store releases at *Just BECAUSE* and they’re super cute and perfect for the coming spring weather, if you’re not in my part of the world. Although spring has officially arrived, no one has told Mother Nature that yet. But, about the new stuff……the ‘Dannicka Sweater and Sweatpants’ make a cute little outfit with the casual style and perfect detailing. They’re sold separately and both are fitted for the ‘Belleza(Freya), Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique). and Legacy mesh bodies. The sweater has 3 areas to customize and the sweatpants have two…..both come in 24 pretty colours.

The ‘Twinkle Balloon’ is from PACK and comes with a decor and a holdable version.

The’ G1224′ hair is from tram.

I stopped in at Authors Point for this picture.

I’ll Wait

I'll Wait

You say that I’m a dreamer
You always let me be myself
That’s just what you do, man
When you love someone, you love someone

When I’m feeling worthless
You’re always there to help me out
That’s just what you do, man
When you love someone, you love someone

You know that I will be the light
To always be there at your side
I just wanna tell you why
And this is how it goes

I’ll wait, I’ll wait to be the one
To catch you when you’re falling
Always, always I’ll be the one
To answer when you’re calling

Well, you know I get so lonely
But with you I never feel alone
I guess that’s how it is, man
When you love someone, you love someone

You know I’m out here working
You know I do it all for you
Nobody’s perfect, they say

You know that I will be the light
To always be there at your side
I just wanna tell you why
And this is how it goes

I’ll wait, I’ll wait to be the one
To catch you when you’re falling
Always, always I’ll be the one
To answer when you’re calling

I’ll change my habits just to show I care
I’ll face my demons just to show I’m there
I’ll be with you till my final days
I’ll change my habits just to show I care
I’ll face my demons just to show I’m there
I’ll be with you till my final days

I’ll wait, I’ll wait to be the one
To catch you when you’re falling
Always, always I’ll be the one
To answer when you’re calling

I’ll Wait‘ ~The Strumbellas~

Unthought Known

Unthought Known

All the thoughts you never see
You are always thinking
Brain is wide, the brain is deep
Oh, are you sinking?

Feel the path of every day
Which road you taking?
Breathing hard, making hay
Yeah, this is living

Look for love in evidence
That you’re worth keeping
Swallowed whole in negatives
It’s so sad and sickening

Feel the air up above
Oh, pool of blue sky
Fill the air up with love
All black with starlight

Feel the sky blanket you
With gems and rhinestones!!!
See the path cut by the moon
For you to walk on

For you to walk on…

Nothing left, nothing left
Nothing there, nothing here…
Nothing left, nothing left
Nothing there, nothing left…
Nothing left, nothing left
Nothing there, nothing here…

See the path cut by the moon
For you to walk on
See the waves on distant shores
Awaiting your arrival

Dream the dreams of other men
You’ll be no one’s rival
Dream the dreams of others then
You will be no one’s rival

You will be no one’s rival…

A distant time, a distant space
That’s where we’re living
A distant time, a distant place
So what ya giving?
What ya giving?

Unthought Known‘ ~Eddie Vedder~

There’s not a day that can’t be improved upon by letting a little bit of Eddie Vedder into it. This is such a short song, but it’s powerful, nonetheless. As I sit here quietly at home in the computer room, I look out my east window and see snow, bare trees, and a cloudy sky……it’s another day in the Canadian prairies, where the horizon is endless, the sky is vast, and though the prairies are believed to be boring by many…..I find nothing more beautiful. With all that’s happening around the world, I find peace and comfort in being home……and a big cup of coffee doesn’t hurt, either.

I’m hanging out at Ubay Island for this shot.
