To The Moon And Back

To The Moon And Back

She’s taking her time making up
the reasons
To justify all the hurt inside
Guess she knows from the smile
and the look in their eyes
Everyone’s got a theory about the
bitter one
They’re saying, “Mamma never loved
her much”
And, “Daddy never keeps in touch
That’s why she shies away from
human affection”
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she’s waiting for the right
kind of pilot to come
And she’ll say to him
She’s saying

I would fly to the moon & back if
you’ll be…
If you’ll be my baby
Got a ticket for a world where we
belong
So would you be my baby?

She can’t remember a time when she
felt needed
If love was red then she was colour
blind
All her friends they’ve been tried for
treason
And crimes that were never defined
She’s saying, “Love is like a barren
place,
And reaching out for human faith is
Is like a journey I just don’t have a
map for”
So baby’s gonna take a dive and
Push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that she’s hanging
All her hopes on the stars
What a pleasant dream
Just saying

Mamma never loved her much
And Daddy never keeps in touch
That’s why she shies away from
human affection
But somewhere in a private place
She packs her bags for outer space
And now she’s waiting for the right
kind of pilot to come
And she’ll say to him
Just saying

To the Moon and Back‘ ~Savage Garden~

Nothing makes me feel so small as when I look up into the nighttime sky, and since I live in the prairies where the sky is vast and the horizon far, the view is spectacular any time of year. There’s nothing so clear and bright as a night in January. The days are short and the changing sky always has something to see. I don’t know many of the constellations, but I can pick out a few of them, I might glimpse a satellite going over on one if it’s passes and sometimes there’s a shooting star to see, but usually just from the corner of my eye. As anyone who’s seen the northern lights knows, they are a sight to behold. The dancing colours are fascinating and sometimes I’ve stood so long watching them I thought I’d frozen my feet! The moon is always a point of interest for me, I kind of liken it’s many phases to my emotions, always changing. It’s kind of fitting that I’m a Cancer and the Moon is my ruling planet. I’m very fortunate to live in the country where the view of the sky isn’t hindered by light pollution, at this point in life I don’t think I could survive without living in the country…..the quiet, the peace and the eternal sense of wonder all make each day worth living. Oh gawd….if you read all that while thinking of Morgan Freeman’s voice I think I just wrote the lead in to a documentary, with a big grand finale!! 😀

I have a simple picture today to show you the ‘Vickie Top’ from *Just BECAUSE*. It’s a cute little cropped sweater that shows a cute little midriff and off-shoulder design bringing attention to all the right places, and the texturing is perfect! It comes in 26 colours, or the fatpack, and is compatible with the major mesh bodies, you can find it now at Collabor88. I put the top with the ‘Vanessa Pants’, also from *Just Because*, the dropped waistline and snug fit makes this outfit super slimming!

‘The Countess’ eye glasses are from Earthstones. I don’t wear glasses often, but I should! 🙂

The ‘Evie’ hair is from Stealthic.

As per 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. I’ve added some eye shadow from the ‘Satin Eyeshadow’ set from Buzzeri and eyelashes from Mai Bilavio.

The pose is from the ‘Danae’ set of poses from entangled poses, with a bit of a head tweak from Animare.

The moon is from ‘the sky is the limit’ gacha set from [keke].

How Deep is Your Love

How Deep is Your Love

I know your eyes in the morning sun
I feel you touch me in the pouring rain
And the moment that you wander far from me
I wanna feel you in my arms again

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love then you softly leave
And it’s me you need to show
How deep is your love

How deep is your love,
How deep is your love
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

I believe in you
You know the door to my very soul
You’re the light in my deepest darkest hour
You’re my saviour when I fall
And you may not think
I care for you
When you know down inside
That I really do
And it’s me you need to show
How deep is your love

How deep is your love,
How deep is your love
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

And you come to me on a summer breeze
Keep me warm in your love then you softly leave
And it’s me you need to show
How deep is your love

How deep is your love,
How deep is your love
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down
When they all should let us be
We belong to you and me

How Deep Is Your Love‘ ~Bee Gees~

I don’t have much to say this morning, but I do have a picture of Vrir and I in our new home. For me, home isn’t where I hang my hat, but who I’m with. ♥

The pose is ‘Right Here’ by //STANCE and available until January 25 at The Pose Fair. The chair is included.

Wicked Game

Wicked Game

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do.
I never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you.
And I never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you.

No, I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I don’t want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you, with you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)

What a wicked game you play to make me feel this way.
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you.
What a wicked thing to say, you never felt this way.
What a wicked thing to do, to make me dream of you

And I wanna fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I wanna fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you.

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you.
It’s strange what desire will make foolish people do.

And I never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you,

No, I wanna fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
No, I… (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
(this girl is only gonna break your heart)

Nobody loves no one.

The many facets of Liz…………

Concentrate people! I know there’s a few things that may tend to draw your eye in this picture, but I want to show you the ‘Star Leg Tattoo’ from Carol G Tattoo Studio! It’s a simple but showy tattoo that adds a sprinkling of stars along the upper leg. It’s available now at Cosmopolitan and it comes in black and white and compatible with the major mesh bodies, including Omega. This round of Cosmopolitan runs until January 12.

And as for my outfit? It’s the ‘Celeste’ bra and thong in mint, from /erratic/.

My hair is ‘G1224’ from tram.

As usual, 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.

The silk ribbon around my wrists is from the ‘Tied Up Ribbon’ gacha from {Sallie}.

The pose is ‘Blindfolded 6’ from [evoLove]. And I’m sitting on the ‘Accent Gilt Chair’ from Nutmeg.

Black

Black

Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did.
All five horizons revolved around her soul as the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn

Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore

And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds of what was everything.
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything…

I take a walk outside, I’m surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear?
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head, I’m spinning, oh,
I’m spinning, how quick the sun can drop away

And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass of what was everything
All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything…

All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I’ll be… yeah…

Uh huh… uh huh… ooh…

I know someday you’ll have a beautiful life,
I know you’ll be a star in somebody else’s sky,
But why, why, why can’t it be, can’t it be mine?

Aah… uuh..

Black‘ ~Pearl Jam~

I’m a little at odds with this picture, to be honest. I’ve done lots and lots of pictures depicting depression, sadness, and pain……but the difference between all of those and this one is my state of mind. Those times I was feeling that at the time I took the shot, this one is different. I’m as happy as I’ve ever been so why a sad picture now? It started simply, really……I said to Vrir……’I need to blog these boots’!. And of course, Vrir being Vrir said, ‘I have an idea’! He says that a lot, I have to say……he’s an endless supply of creativity for me. So, lo and behold….a chair with ropes and a knife appeared before me! 😀 He dashed off to real life and there I stood, looking at that chair and wondering what the hell to do with it……I loved the idea….but normally that’s not what Vrir and I do with a chair with ropes. ;D So anyway, this is what happened……the pose….the lighting…….and of course the chair, ropes and knife all ended up depicting a part of my life, as I see it.

On a happier note…….it’s Eddie Vedder time!!! Wasn’t he adorable back in ’92? He’s still a very handsome man….he’s aged very well, as they say……but man….’92 seems like a lifetime ago.

So none of that is why I’m here today, though…..I’m here to talk about the boots! This lovely pair of boots! They’re the ‘Susan’ boots from **UTOPIA@Design** and they’re incredible, to say the least. The perfect texturing and design makes them a must-have. They fit the SLink(Hourglass/Physique), Maitreya, and Belleza(Isis/Freya/Venus) mesh bodies and come with 12 colours, 16 preset colour combinations and 6 areas to customize. They’re available now at FaMESHed, which runs until the end of the month.

Here’s a hint for anyone wondering what to wear with the boots!! The ‘Vanessa Pants’ from *Just BECAUSE* come with a version to wear with boots, and they fit perfectly under these! They fit the major mesh bodies and come in 26 colours. The fit is incredible with a unique waistline that really draws the eye.

I added the ‘Jolene Top’ from Blueberry to complete the look!

The hair is ‘Char’, a past VIP group gift from TRUTH Hair.

As always, my look starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is ‘Go Away’ from Del May.

The ‘{Tied Up] Chair/fallen’ is from Sway’s.

Sign Of The Times

Sign of the Times

Just stop your crying
It’s a sign of the times
Welcome to the final show
Hope you’re wearing your best clothes

You can’t bribe the door on your way to the sky
You look pretty good down here
But you ain’t really good

We never learn, we’ve been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets, the bullets?
We never learn, we’ve been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
Your bullets, the bullets?

Just stop your crying
It’s a sign of the times
We gotta get away from here
We gotta get away from here
Just stop your crying
It’ll be alright
They told me that the end is near
We gotta get away from here

Just stop your crying
Have the time of your life
Breaking through the atmosphere
And things are pretty good from here

Remember, everything will be alright
We can meet again somewhere
Somewhere far away from here

We never learn, we’ve been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets, the bullets?
We never learn, we’ve been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets, the bullets?

Just stop your crying
It’s a sign of the times
We gotta get away from here
We gotta get away from here
Stop your crying
Baby, it’ll be alright
They told me that the end is near
We gotta get away from here

We never learn, we’ve been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets, the bullets?
We never learn, we’ve been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
Your bullets, the bullets?

We don’t talk enough
We should open up
Before it’s all too much
Will we ever learn?
We’ve been here before
It’s just what we know
