Only Time

Who can say where the road goes?
Where the day flows?
Only time.
And who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose?
Only time.

Who can say why your heart sighs
As your love flies?
Only time.
And who can say why your heart cries
When your love lies?
Only time.

Who can say when the roads meet
That love might be in your heart?
And who can say when the day sleeps
If the night keeps all your heart,
Night keeps all your heart?

Who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose?
Only time.
And who can say where the road goes?
Where the day flows?
Only time.

Who knows? Only time.
Who knows? Only time.

Only Time‘ ~Enya~

I don’t know where I’m going, but I do know where I’ve been. I know what hasn’t worked for me in the past, but I can’t say with complete certainty that I won’t end up there again. I know where I’d like to be in future, but regardless of plans I make, I’m aware that my life may not happen that way! And that’s OK, because of all the planning I’ve done in the past to get where I thought I’d wanted to be, I instead wound where I’m supposed to be. And that’s more important than getting only what I desire at the time. Without knowing the big picture, how can I know that what I want is what I need?

Does that paragraph make any sense to anyone? If not, just carry on and don’t give it another thought. 😀

I thought I could live without the ‘Rie’ wet top and panties from Blueberry, but I was mistaken. On a spur of the moment shopping trip I couldn’t resist them……and here I am…in all my wet T-shirt glory. You don’t have to bare all to wear this though, the top has a bra to wear underneath it with an on/off toggle or you can go all dry with the set if you prefer. The panties are included with the top fatpack or it can be purchased separately as a mini pack.

The ‘CHIZURA’ hair is from Argrace, this is from the blondes pack.

The ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone is from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve not added any make up to the skin here, for the clean fresh look!

The pose is from the ‘Wet Sand A’ set of poses from Body Language Sweet Lovely Cute, or Bodylanguage SLC, if you will.

The Hockey Game

Hello out there, we’re on the air, it’s ‘Hockey Night’ tonight.
Tension grows, the wistle blows, and the puck goes down the ice.
The goalie jumps, and the players bump, and the fans all go insane.
Someone roars, “Bobby Scores!”, at the good ol’ Hockey Game.

:: CHORUS ::
OH! The good ol’ Hockey game, is the best game you can name.
And the best game you can name, is the good ol’ Hockey game.

Second Period.

Where players dash, with skates aflash, the home team trails behind.
But they grab the puck, and go bursting up, and they’re down across the line.
They storm the crease, like bumble bees, they travel like a burning flame.
We see them slide, the puck inside, it’s a 1-1 hockey game.

(Chorus)

Third Period. Last game of the playoff too!

Oh take me where, the hockey players, face off down the rink.
And the Stanley Cup, is all filled up, for the champs who win the drink.
Now the final flick, of a hockey stick, and the one gigantic scream.
“The puck is in! The home team wins!”, the good ol’ hockey game.

The Hockey Song‘ ~Stompin’ Tom Connors~

*muttering to myself* I got his favourite pizza I hope he appreciates this! And beer….gotta have beer with the pizza. I just hope he doesn’t go on and on like he usually does. Gawd I don’t know if I’ll be able to take it….Sidney this and Evgeni that! And if he says ‘threepeat’ one more time I’m going to lose it, seriously! Robert’s a great guy, I can’t deny that, it’s not his fault he lives where he does and has bad taste in hockey teams. Penguins…….who in hell is afraid of a Penguin! The only thing worse than a penguin would be a flamingo….yea…that’s what they should be….the Pittsburgh Flamingos..it has a ring to it! Then I could cover his lawn with plastic ones. I wonder if I can find plastic penguins…I doubt it. Who would want penguins on their lawn, but then again who wants plastic flamingos on their lawn, for that matter? Oh man, I hope the Caps can do it this time, I sure don’t need the same thing happening today as last game. Him standing over me with his finger just about jammed up my nose, yelling ‘In your face..!’ I never knew he was that intense….

Ok, so that’s complete and utter fiction! Oh, Robert Galland is a Pittsburgh Penguin fan, that’s true…but the rest is just silly! I’m on my way to his new and incredible house, the ‘Cape Hatteras’ by Galland Homes. I love it’s open floor plan with lots of windows but still wall space for that big screen TV or art work you may collect. The upstairs has a master suite and second bedroom plus a room for a nursery, bathroom or office! It’s available now at the ULTRA Event! For more pictures and information you can visit the Galland Homes Facebook page or see them in-world at the Main Store.

And as for the decorating? The ‘Summer Garden Planters’ are from {what next}. The ‘Gillian Schoolhouse Bench’ is from Trompe Loeil. The two pair of shoes are from the ‘Stockholm Bedroom’ set from ~BAZAR~.

My outfit consists of the ‘Lila Rolled Cuff Jeans’ from Blueberry and the ‘Basic Tank Top’ from Tres Blah along with the ‘Arianna Sneakers’ from REIGN.. My hair is ‘AKEMI’ by Argrace. My poses are a combination of 2 poses from Le Poppycock, with the most important one being from the ‘A Helping Hand’ set of poses, which made it so easy to carry the pizza.

Perfect

Made a wrong turn, once or twice
Dug my way out, blood and fire
Bad decisions, that’s alright
Welcome to my silly life

Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
Miss “No way, it’s all good”, it didn’t slow me down
Mistaken, always second guessing, underestimated
Look, I’m still around

Pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect
Pretty pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing
You’re f*ckin’ perfect to me!

You’re so mean, when you talk, about yourself you were wrong
Change the voices in your head, make them like you instead
So complicated, look how big, you’ll make it
Filled with so much hatred, such a tired game
It’s enough! I’ve done all I can think of
Chased down all my demons, I’ve seen you do the same

Oh, pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing
You’re f*ckin’ perfect to me

The whole world’s scared, so I swallow the fear
The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer
So cool and limed and we try, try, try
But we try too hard and its a waste of my time
Done looking for the critics ’cause there everywhere
They don’t like my jeans, they don’t get my hair
Exchange ourselves and we do it all the time
Why do we do that, why do I do that?
Why do I do that?

Oh, pretty, pretty please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect
Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing
You’re f*ckin’ perfect to me!
You’re perfect, you’re perfect

Perfect‘ ~Pink~

Just a song today, it’s another cold gloomy day here, where the snow won’t melt and we’re a little over 2 months to the longest day! Then they start getting shorter again! That thought alone makes me want to run away, very far away!

Today I’m out on the beach at Salt Water, the seagulls are dipping and diving above me and the warm ocean breeze feels so nice! I’m looking pretty hot too, all because of the ‘Britta Kini’ from [QE] Designs, which is available now at the Black Fair. It’s a strappy little number that shows off curves and accentuates the positive! It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza(Isis & Freya) mesh bodies and the HUD contains 6 vibrant colour combinations. The Black Fair runs until April 20.

So, about this tattoo! There’s a few things in this life that I have a ‘thing’ for, and one of them is turtles and tortoises, well I guess that’s 2! 😀 There’s a story that goes along with why I’m enthralled by them that I won’t get into at this time, but I’ll just add that I do have a turtle tattoo in real life! So, when Sandowl released this beauty of a sea turtle tattoo in the Wild Roots main store I was more than thrilled! This is so gorgeous, with intricate detailing, perfect placement and comes in a black and white(seen here) and a colour version. The colours being soft muted tones perfect for summer! It’s compatible with the big 3 mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven along with a tattoo layer for classic avatars.

The ‘HARUKA’ hair is from Argrace.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Raine Gen2’ skin in tone 210 from Avada, it’s available now at The Makeover Room. It’s worn on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is pose 29 from .MILA..

As I Come Clean...

Yes, I understand that every life must end, uh-huh
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, uh-huh
Oh I’m a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love
Some folks just have one, yeah, others, they’ve got none

Stay with me…
Let’s just breathe…

Practiced are my sins, never gonna let me win, uh-huh
Under everything, just another human being, uh-huh
I don’t wanna hurt, there’s so much in this world to make me bleed

Stay with me
You’re all I see…

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me

As I come clean…
I wonder everyday, as I look upon your face, uh-huh
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, oh no

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave…

Did I say that I need you?
Oh, did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
And I come clean, ah…

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Hold me ’til I die
Meet you on the other side…

Just Breathe‘ ~Eddie Vedder~

Everyday could be an Eddie Vedder day, for me, but I try to find new songs and artists that I haven’t heard to expand my musical horizon. This is one of my favourites of EV’s and I may have shared it already, but I don’t care…..it’s worth a repeat.

So, personally I’ve had a difficult week with being over emotional and somewhat down….well….not somewhat…….just down. With all the bad news on TV I’ve pretty much stopped watching it, I limit the amount of news I read and hear to just once a day, that way I don’t get caught up in the anxiety and negativity of it all. Then, the news of a crash on a highway in my part of Canada hits, and I’m struck with how precious life is. I think this accident has been covered nationally, it’s severity completely shocking. My heart goes out to all of the people affected by this. In so many small towns in Canada the hockey team is something that everyone supports and follows, and the Humboldt Broncos have been national champions in the past, and hopefully will be again. It’s events like this that everyone should look at their life and cherish everyone and everything in it. You can never say ‘I love you’ too much, or appreciate this world we live in enough. This life we live is fleeting, and with the finite amount of time each of us has, it’s much too short to not live….really live!!

So, the picture today is just something I took yesterday while pondering life. I tend to be drawn to sad poses but I wanted something a little lighter and the ‘Katyusha Elegant Armchair’ from RK Poses is perfect. This is the female half of the couples pose in this chair and it’s thoughtful without being sad, I think. I’m just resting…..calming my mind and letting my worries go. The chair is available now at Shiny Shabby until April 15.

The KOMA hair is from Argrace.

I Won't Give Up

When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well, there’s so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

Well, I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

And when you’re needing your space
To do some navigating
I’ll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

‘Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We’ve got a lot to learn
God knows we’re worth it
No, I won’t give up

I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I’ve got, and what I’m not, and who I am

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up, I’m still looking up.

Well, I won’t give up on us (no I’m not giving up)
God knows I’m tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We’ve got a lot to learn (we’re alive, we are loved)
God knows we’re worth it (and we’re worth it)

I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

I Won’t Give Up‘ ~Jason Mraz & Daryl Hall~

Yea…another song for you! I’m sorry for not having anything to say! I sit and try to think of something to write about, preferably happy, and I come up empty every time. It’s hard to write from the heart and be happy, when the heart isn’t happy. I refuse to bring everyone down with dark thoughts, so this is what I’m left with. In all honesty, I’d love to put a song with every picture, I love music and most of my pictures have a mood that’s perfect for certain songs. I’m standing atop a rocky cliff at Isle of May, it looks like I’m considering taking the plunge, but as one friend said, ‘don’t bother….wearing that gown will just make a parachute’ and I’ll float down to land on the shore below. So, I’ll stand out here in the wind, deep in thought and trying to keep dark thoughts at bay! Please be warned that you may be faced with another song for the next post. Until something shifts in my thinking, I’m sorry to say that more songs are on the way. I hope I don’t run out, YouTube does have a finite number of songs! 🙂

The beginning of April has brought with it a new round of FaMESHed, and Just BECAUSE is there with the gorgeous ‘Evelyn’ gown. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Physique & Hourglass), and the Belleza(Isis & Freya) mesh bodies and comes in 32 colours, with each colour being HUD driven to change straps and beads. The beads also have an on/off toggle. Maybe just get the fatpack, it’s usually what I do! FaMESHed runs until April 27.

The ‘KOHAKU’ hair is from Argrace.

I’m wearing the ‘Raine Gen 2’ skin, in tone 210 from Avada, and available now at The Makeover Room, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Heartache’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.
