Everlong

Hello
I’ve waited here for you
Everlong
Tonight
I throw myself into
And out of the red
Out of her head she sang

Come down
And waste away with me
Down with me
Slow how
You wanted it to be
I’m over my head
Out of her head she sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang

Breathe out
So I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now
I know you’ve always been
Out of your head
Out of my head I sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang

[Whisper:]
So, Dad would take the Sundays off.
And that’s the only time he could ever get any rest.
And so, because we were loud on Sundays, he’d make us hold his construction boots over our head, ’til we’d sleep.
And they were really heavy boots and I used to say, “Dad, come on, please.”
And like start crying, ’cause they’re too heavy.

And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when

This is the pose ‘Break’ from Shadow’s Poses and what I really love about it is it’s gentle relaxed look which really translates well in photographs. I’m taking some quiet time for myself in bed, just concentrating on being calm and thinking nice thoughts. There are so many things that can make a picture speak and it all starts with a pose, all the little details do matter, but it all starts here!

I’m wearing part of the ‘Diana’ set of lingerie in noir from /erratic/. This is the ‘Cheeky Thong and Tube Bra’. I love the whole set though, there’s 3 thong versions, 2 bras, wrist cuffs, suspenders, and stocking in 3 colours and it’s a sight to behold when worn as a set. The lace and pearls are shear perfection together!

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Cherish the Day

You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer
If you were mine
If you were mine
I wouldn’t want to go to heaven

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
You’re ruling the way that I move
You take my air

You show me how deep love can be

You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away

You show me how deep love can be
You show me how deep love can be
This is my prayer

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away
Won’t shy

I Cherish the Day
I won’t go astray

I Cherish the Day

Cherish the Day‘ ~Sade~

If, at the end of the day, you can look back and be satisfied that you’ve done all you can to make the day count, it’s been a very good day. How do we make a day count? First off I try to accomplish something, no matter how big or small, just make at least one step forward. I make sure to laugh as much as I can…even though some days all it might be is a small smile while considering the irony of this world. I want the people I love know how I feel about them, it may not always be obvious but even just doing something nice for them can let them know they matter. To make a day complete it’s good to do something for yourself, reading a book while soaking in a bath or taking a walk to collect your thoughts….doesn’t matter what it is….if a person enjoys it….then do it! Unless, of course, it’s illegal…….then I don’t want to know about it. 😀 A random act of kindness is always good to make a day better, both the giver and the receiver benefit from one small good deed each day. And when I lay down at night I remember to appreciate that I’ve had another day here on this earth and that if I don’t make it through the night ahead….at least I made my last day count!

First off, I want to thank Vrir for enjoying this sunset with me. There are few things better than feeling a light evening breeze coming in off the water and hearing the soft sounds of the waves lapping at the shore, at the end of a perfect day. ♥

Ok, I know this picture’s a little bit dark……well….yea….maybe more than a little bit, but I wanted this lighting, so I’m hoping Robert Galland of Galland Homes will understand that the daybed, which I’m featuring here, is somewhat lost in the silhouette but I’ll make it up with a closer look below. The ‘Freeman Day Bed’ is the newest release from Galland Homes and it’s exclusive to the FaMESHedGO HUD based shopping event and available at the Main Store. It has a land impact of 8 and is available in PG and Adult, with bento animations and sequences included with both versions. The animations are high quality and there’s a few that I’ve not seen before and are SO adorable!

Arc

Arc‘ ~Eddie Vedder!

I have to admit that the songs I choose aren’t always long time favourites of mine. I spend a lot of time on YouTube listening to new artists that I’ve not yet heard. I love when a song is with a photo on flickr, I always have to click that link to listen to the song that someone chose to put with that particular image. It’s a great way to find new songs and artists that I might not already be familiar with. So, if you put a link to a song with your picture, know that I am going to be listening to it. In turn, I like to try to introduce my followers to music that maybe they hadn’t heard before, you may not like it all, but each song I choose to feature strikes me in some way emotionally. I haven’t shared anything by Eddie Vedder recently, so I decided to search him on YouTube and way down the list of videos I found this one. I find it haunting and completely magical…mainly because there’s no lyrics to take the focus off of the music iteslf. The sounds and emotion are more than enough to make my mind slow down and to breath deep in relaxation. When I find music that soothes me, I tend to go to it again and again to help me find a moment or two of peace. Eddie Vedder does that for me, regardless of the song, there’s something about his voice and the emotion he puts into it that takes me away from the real world and into a more peaceful and loving place.

I’m out on the dock at my home, and although I look like I’m napping, I’m not….I’m just taking a few moments to enjoy the quiet around me. The pose I’m using is from the F.4 set of bento poses from IntoXx. The set consists of 5 sitting poses, all natural, relaxed and unique. I’ve always been a pose hoarder in Second Life, and at this point I can’t even guess at how many I have, but I’m always looking for new ones. IntoXx has both male and female poses plus some very nice couples poses that I’ll be showing you in the near future. I’ve always felt that the choice of pose is the most important part of a photograph, then I add windlight and camera angle, trying to get the picture to speak for me. This set of poses, plus a men’s set of poses and 2 new couples poses from IntoXx, are available now at the ACCESS event, which runs until July 7.

As for my outfit, I’m wearing the ‘Michonne’ tank top from /erratic/ with the ‘Ella’ denim shorts from LEGAL INSANITY, which you can’t see…but believe me they’re there! The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram and the ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink. As always I’m wearing 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 sitting on the ‘Jenica Wicker Chair’ from Trompe Loeil.

Fire And The Flood

I was only walking through your neighborhood
Saw your light on, honey; in the cold I stood
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

I been getting used to waking up with you
I been getting used to waking up here
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

There you are
There you are

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

Since we met I feel a lightness in my step
You’re miles away but I still feel you
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are
Late at night when you can’t fall asleep
I’ll be lying right beside you counting sheep
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

There you are
There you are

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

Now listen here she said
Boy when you know you’ll know
And I know

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

The June round of FaMESHed Go is up and going strong, it’s a HUD based shopping event taking you to the main stores of all participating creators. I’m wearing the ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ from *Just BECAUSE* here and it’s just in time for the summertime fun. It’s HUD driven with on/off toggles for both top and bottom and there’s tons of colours, including the printpack. The top has a toggle to make the ruffle the only thing covering the girls, so you can be a little more daring if you wish. This is one time I’m not showing the rear view, but it’s definitely worthy of seeing. You’ll probably get to see it in one of my shameless butt shots in the future.

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram and available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is pose 1 from the Tatiana’ gacha set from Poses.

I’m at Cherishville at Mysteria Cove for this shot.

Hold Back The River

Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between
Tried to square not being there
But it’s there that I should’ve been

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Once upon a different life
We rode our bikes into the sky
But now we’re caught against the tide
Those distant days all flashing by

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Oh, oho, oho, oho, oho
Oho, oho, oho, oho

Lonely water, lonely water,
Won’t you let us wander?
Let us hold each other?
Lonely water, lonely water,
Won’t you let us wander?
Let us hold each other?

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river
Hold…

Hold Back The River‘ ~James Bay~

I was going to try to find a song that related to the mood of this picture, but since it’s Saturday and I’m in a good mood, I figured I’d pick a song I like and go with that, regardless of matching the picture. I’ve always written blog posts with feeling, matching my mood of moment. I can’t say ‘mood of the day’ because I never have one mood for an entire day, well I do sometimes……but it seems that only the truly dark moods can last for days without being altered. Whereas, the happy moods always seem a little bit fragile and can leave me in a heartbeat and be replaced with usually something not so happy. I don’t think I’ve ever had a good mood get better in that way. My moods can plummet from the slightest things, usually having to do with others in my life. I’ve always wondered if everyone is like this, and they’re just better at controlling it, I’ve never been able to control it…..I’m just full of free flowing emotion that can get swept away with the tide so easily. But today is a good day, although……it’s only 5:30 AM…..I’ve had coffee and not seen or spoken to anyone yet….after this…all bets are off! 😀

The main thing to focus on in this picture is the pose! I saw the ad for this set of poses from IntoXx and knew I had to attach my PocketGacha HUD and work at getting it. The June round of PocketGacha started yesterday and I haven’t done much shopping on it yet, since I was so focused on getting this RARE pose. Remember when people used to say, ‘talk to the hand’? I haven’t heard that in a long time! For your copy of the PocketGacha HUD just drop in to the PG HQ and you can get right at all the gacha fun. You can find more poses for men, women and couples at the IntoXx mainstore.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

I’m wearing the ‘Sahara Dress’ from Tetra, I love the long cool look of it!

As always, I’m wearing 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 gorgeous Oboeru sim for this shot.
