Grow Old with Me

Grow Old with Me

I can feel you breathing
With your hair on my skin
As we lie here within
The night

I’ll pull the sheets
When it’s cold on your feet
Cause you’ll fall back to sleep
Every time

Grow old with me
Let us share what we see
And oh the best it could be
Just you and I

And our hands they might age
And our bodies will change
But we’ll still be the same
As we are

We’ll still sing our song
When our hair ain’t so blonde
And our children have sung
We were right

They’ll sing
Grow old with me
Let us share what we see
And oh the best it could be
Just you and I

And the hairs they stand up
And my feet start to thump
Yer the feeling is dreaming
Around

You’ll be the one
Make me hurt, make me come
Make me feel like I’m real
And alive

Oh and a one, two, three, four

Grow old with me
Let us share what we see
And oh the best it could be
Just you and I

Grow old with me
Let us share what we see
And oh the best it could be
Just you and I

Grow Old with Me‘ ~Tom Odell~

This couples pose is another one that just felt right for Vrir and I. The intimacy of the pose makes me feel like I’m an intruder watching a couple’s private moment together, and that for me, is a great pose…..to have the viewer feel like they’re part of the scene. It’s the ‘I Just Wanna Feel’ couples pose from The Owl and it’s one of many group gifts available at the main store. The group is free to join, btw.

There’s not much else to see, other than the puff ball of hair at the back of my head. It’s thanks to the ‘Ivy’ hair from Stealthic.

Beautiful Day

Beautiful Day

The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There’s no room
No space to rent in this town

You’re out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you’re not moving anywhere

You thought you’d found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It’s a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away

You’re on the road
But you’ve got no destination
You’re in the mud
In the maze of her imagination

You love this town
Even if that doesn’t ring true
You’ve been all over
And it’s been all over you

It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
It’s a beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I’m not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
Beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I’m not a hopeless case

What you don’t have you don’t need it now
What you don’t know you can feel it somehow
What you don’t have you don’t need it now
Don’t need it now
Was a beautiful day

Beautiful Day‘ ~U2~

Is my world blue and green? Noooo, it’s blue and brown right now…..and some greys….and maybe a few yellows from dead grasses. But, it’s getting there….it just takes a little longer in my part of the world. And actually, it’s mid April which is still fairly early so green grass and leaves on the trees isn’t really expected. We can still easily get snow this time of year and it’s freezing at nights too, so there’s no rush for summer here. There’s a very fine line dividing spring and fall here in the prairies. When the snow melts the landscape looks much like it did last fall when the snow first covered everything. The grass is still brown and the fields look like they’ve just been harvested, so if I look out the window and don’t feel the spring air, it could just as easily be fall. I’ll enjoy the cooler temperatures of spring today, because tomorrow it could snow….or it could be +30°C and hotter than Hades, so this is just right!

Carol G Tattoo Studio has the ‘Riddle Roses TaTToo’ exclusive to this round of the UniK event. It comes in black(seen here), white, and coloured with 4 ink tones for each and it’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven. I love the design that covers chest, arms, and upper back and with it extending down onto the hands it adds a nice look. UniK runs until April 28, and it’ll be available at the Carol G main store after that.

The pose I’m using is part of a group gift from The Owl. The group is free to join and there’s a bunch of group gifts there for the taking.

It’s almost beach time so I couldn’t resist the newest release from Blueberry. The ‘Sunny’ bikini has 2 versions included and tons of colours, plus if you get the mega pack, which is the most economical, you’ll get the unzipped shorts to wear with it.

The ‘G0127’ hair is from tram.

And as always, the whole start of my look begins with the ‘Maddie’ skin in’honey’ tone on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at the beautifully sunny and sandy Serendipitous Sands for this shot!

I Can Fix This………

I Can Fix This.......

Magic Bus‘ ~The Who~

Lake: “You know, Liz. There’s a lot more wrong with this thing that can’t be fixed from under there!”.

Me: “But if you’d at least help it might go a little faster, you know! You stand there doing nothing when you could at least start putting that transmission in!”.

Just a bit of fun with Lake Solee.

She’s Like the Wind

She's Like the Wind

She’s like the wind,
Through my tree
She rides the night
Next to me

She leads me through moonlight
Only to burn me with the sun
She’s taken my heart
But she doesn’t know what she’s done

Feel her breath in my face
Her body close to me
Can’t look in her eyes
She’s out of my league

Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She’s like the wind

I look in the mirror
And all I see
Is a young old man
With only a dream
Am I just fooling myself
That she’ll stop the pain?
Living without her
I’d go insane!

I feel her breath in my face
Her body close to me
Can’t look in her eyes
She’s out of my league

Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She’s like the wind

I feel your breath in my face
Your body close to me
Can’t look in your eyes
You’re out of my league

Just a fool to believe (Just a fool to believe)
She’s like the wind

She’s Like the Wind‘ ~Patrick Swayze~

I don’t what I can say about this picture other than Vrir is a very patient man! Who knew that the beautiful exhibit by Paola Mills at Nitroglobus didn’t intend on everyone being nude to view it! I just thought, you know, since I was there and the theme is ‘Nudes’ I’d get into the spirit of it, but……nope…..that’s not the way it works! I’ll just put my panties back on and carry on! 😀

I love a bit of humour in a picture, but it’s not always easy to achieve. But, when Vrir and I went through the new set of poses from IntoXx, this is the one that caught our eye. I know we could have done a sad picture, this pose can be many things, but we were in the mood for a bit of fun. The pose is one of 5 in the M.9 set, and all are really emotive with great bento hand positions, and they fit Vrir perfectly.

As for the rest of the shot I’m holding the ‘Ruby-Slip on Finger’ panties with bento pose from [I<3F]. It’s for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya only and the panties are HUD driven with 12 colours.

I’m wearing the ‘Layla, dress, sans panties, from Agata mode.

Lovesong

Lovesong

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

(Fly me to the moon)

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

Lovesong‘ ~Scott Helman & Jann Arden~ (The Cure)

Poor Vrir…..I don’t mean it to look like he’s just in the picture to make me the center of attention, but I always seem to end up with an angle that doesn’t exactly show him in the best of light. When we pose together for a picture I always tell myself to let Vrir be the focus for once, and I can stand in the shadows, but when I start taking the pictures I end up with only his back or shoulder showing and this time I didn’t do any better in showing him off! Next time…..I’ll get a shot of Vrir up close and personal………well……I won’t get too personal………..he’ll have clothes on! 😛

We had some quality time together while posing for this picture, the ‘Feel Me’ bento couples pose from CKEY Poses is definitely ‘us’. Its romantic and loving and sexy all rolled into one and with the relaxed and natural poses we melt into each other perfectly. The pose is available now at the UniK event which runs until April 28.

A short visit to Collabor88 was exactly the kind of retail therapy I needed the other day. I grabbed the ‘Ex Boyfriend Shirt’ from Tetra without even trying a demo, it’s one of those stores that I know whatever it is, it’ll fit perfectly…..and it does! 😀

The’Ho527′ hair is from tram.

And as always, my skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.
