Your Bones

Your Bones

In the spring we made a boat
Out of feathers, out of bones.
We set fire to our homes,
Walking barefoot in the snow.

Distant rhythm of the drum
As we drifted towards the storm.
Baby lion lost his teeth,
Now they’re swimming in the sea.

Troubled spirits on my chest
Where they laid to rest.
The birds all left, my tall friend,
As your body hit the sand.

Million stars up in the sky
Formed a tiger’s eye
That looked down on my face,
Out of time and out of place.

So hold on.
Hold on to what we are.
Hold on to your heart.

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la

Awakened by the sound
Of a screaming owl.
Chasing leaves in the wind,
Going where we’ve never been.

Said goodbye to you, my friend,
As the fire spread.
All that’s left are your bones
That will soon sink like stones.

So hold on.
Hold on to what we are.
Hold on to your heart.

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la

So hold on.
Hold on to your heart.

Your Bones‘ ~Of Monsters and Men~

This song and video calls to my Viking roots, my untamed heart and the fire burning within me, well….that’s not really what my Viking roots are like. I’m more likely to surround myself in perfect hygge, and feel the peace, love, and connection flow around, and through, me. I don’t think I’m the warrior Viking, I’m the more peaceful Viking that calls in sick on the pillaging and plundering days, and generally prefers peace over anything else. In all honesty, I’m only half Danish…..the other half is English…..what a combination, eh? I’m sure my ancestors on both sides were warriors, and probably fought against each other, and we know how that went! 😀 Have a great Monday everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Canadians.

There’s no way anyone can deny it’s fall…….does it feel like summer anywhere now? Here’s is breezy with a little bit of snow coming down, so I can’t even really say it feels like fall. It’s more of an early winter feel……and there’s a very fine line between late fall and early winter. What I’m getting at is that since it’s fall, it’s time to bring out all the warm, cozy and fall related things. I’ve gone deep into my inventory to find the ‘Autumn Bento Rings from Elle Boutique(formerly Slipper Originals). They have soft fall tones on four rings with sets included for both hands. They’re HUD driven with 6 metals to choose from and each ring has an on/off toggle. They fit the SLink and Maitreya bento hands and add a nice simple touch to a fall outfit. Here’s a closer look at them…

The ‘KELLU BOMBER JACKET’ is from [Vale Koer]. It’s an older release but I have to admit this is the first time I’ve worn it. It’s really nice…….perfect when the weather calls for a jacket, but it’s not too cold for a bare midriff.

The ‘H0906’ hair is from tram!

The ‘Jolene Jeans’ are from Blueberry, and there’s flare and skinny leg included in the set.

‘The Countess’ eye glasses are from Earthstones.

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.

This a pose from the ‘Pretty’ set of poses from DS’ELLES. It’s available until the end of the month at the Pose Fair.

I made a visit to Voodoo in My Blood for this shot. It’s a great sim with lots of scenes perfect for photography.

House Where Nobody Lives

House Where Nobody Lives

There’s a house on my block
That’s abandoned and cold
Folks moved out of it a
Long time ago
And they took all their things
And they never came back
Looks like it’s haunted
With the windows all cracked
And everyone calls it
The house, the house where
Nobody lives

Once it held laughter
Once it held dreams
Did they throw it away
Did they know what it means
Did someone’s heart break
Or did someone do somebody wrong?

Well the paint was all cracked
It was peeled off of the wood
Papers were stacked on the porch
Where I stood
And the weeds had grown up
Just as high as the door
There were birds in the chimney
And an old chest of drawers
Looks like no one will ever
Come back to the
House where nobody lives

Once it held laughter
Once it held dreams
Did they throw it away
Did they know what it means
Did someone’s heart break
Or did someone do somebody wrong?
So if you find someone
Someone to have, someone to hold
Don’t trade it for silver
Don’t trade it for gold
I have all of life’s treasures
And they are fine and they are good
They remind me that houses
Are just made of wood
What makes a house grand
Ain’t the roof or the doors
If there’s love in a house
It’s a palace for sure
Without love…
It ain’t nothing but a house
A house where nobody lives
Without love it ain’t nothing
But a house, a house where
Nobody lives

House Where Nobody Lives‘ ~Tom Waits~

Thanks to Vrir, I’ve just listened to pure magic. The lyrics and haunting voice of Tom Waits are a perfect combination and it’s all so true. I’m one who needs a home, I don’t feel complete without somewhere that I can leave the rest of the world and immerse myself in my own world, surrounded by what brings me peace and comfort. Some people say they can live anywhere, and I can’t relate to that. Oh, I’ve lived in different places, but have never felt more complete as when I live here, on the farm. I feel a true connection with the land that’s been in my family for generations and there’s so many memories here, but they’re not a burden, it just makes me more aware of family history and keeping the spirit of the place alive. There’s nothing so poignant as a farm yard alive with it’s history, each building and every corner having it’s own meaning for the various people who have lived here. The saying is ‘home is where you hang your hat’, but for me home is where my heart is and it’s always been right where I am now.

The September round of ~uber~ is on and *Just BECAUSE* has released the ‘Simone Top’ exclusive for the event. The deep V neckline shows a pretty decolletage and the hemline that scoops up higher on the front and goes low on the back catches the eye. It comes in 26 colours, there’s a printpack of 8 prints(one seen here) and also the fatpack is available and it contains all colours and the printpack too. The top is compatible with the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies.

The ‘H0919’ from tram is also at the latest round of ~uber~. The soft wisps around the face frame it well and included with this hair is a HUD to change the colour of the inner part of the hair independently. You guys all know how much I love tram, and this is another one that confirms why I do!

The jeans are ‘Jolene’ from Blueberry. You can’t see it here, but I’ve chosen the skinny leg version this time.

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.

This pose is one of the 8(plus mirrors) poses in the ‘Wander’ set from .Infiniti..

I took this picture at Soul2Soul Bay. I’d not been there before, but I’ll be going back to explore again.

Just Breathe

Just Breathe

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~

I’ve been given a golden opportunity to use a much loved song by Eddie Vedder and I’m not going to miss the chance, even though I know I’ve used it before. I’ll never tire of this song, and as I sit here writing I’m listening to it again, even though I’ve heard it more times than I can count. Heck, I sing along, not well……but I’m sure EV doesn’t mind. You might notice that I’m wearing the ‘Just Breathe Back Tattoo’ from Wild Roots here and it has everything I love in a tattoo, it’s not too busy, it’s in a great place for showing it off, and it says something….and in a font I can read! I like tattoos that have a message, I’m not into saying I’m gangsta….mainly because I’m not and I’m not sure I ever could be, but something positive and kind is always good. If it has some sort of flora or fauna is also good, and this has a rose, which I like. Although a rose isn’t one of my favourite flowers…..I’m more of a daisy kind of woman. 🙂 The tattoo comes with 3 colours for the rose, black(seen here) red, and pink, and all are very pretty. It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven and there’s a tattoo layer for the classic avatars still out there. It’s available now at The Darkness Event which runs until September 30.

The panties are from the ‘Date Night’ lingerie set from Blueberry and they’re so pretty.

And here’s another one of my favourite hair from tram, the ‘H0527’.

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

This is the ‘Heartbeat’ couples pose from Valor Poses and it’s a group gift right now. The group is 250L$ to join, but right now there’s this one and a set of poses for women available to group members and there’s regular group gifts released. The sim is under construction right now, so be careful where you step. 🙂

And thank you Vrir, just breathe. ♥

I Knew You Were Waiting(For Me)

I Knew You Were Waiting(For Me)

Like a warrior that fights
And wins the battle
I know the taste of victory
Though I went through some nights
Consumed by shadows
I was crippled emotionally

Somehow I made it through the heartache
Yes I did. I escaped.
I found my way out of the darkness
I kept my faith (I know you did), kept my faith

When the river was deep I didn’t falter
When the mountain was high I still believed
When the valley was low it didn’t stop me, no no
I knew you were waiting.
I knew you were waiting for me

With an endless desire
I kept on searching
Sure in time our eyes would meet
Like the bridge is on fire
The hurt is over,
One touch and you set me free

No, I don’t regret a single moment,
No, I don’t (I know you don’t) looking back
When I think of all those disappointments
I just laugh (I know you do), I just laugh

When the river was deep I didn’t falter
When the mountain was high I still believed
When the valley was low it didn’t stop me
I knew you were waiting.
I knew you were waiting for me

So we were drawn together through destiny (oh, boy)
I know this love we shared was meant to be

I knew you were waiting,
Knew you were waiting
I knew you were waiting,
Knew you were waiting for me

I didn’t falter
I still believed
When the valley was low it didn’t stop me
I knew you were waiting.
I knew you were waiting for me

I didn’t falter
When the mountain was high I still believed
When the valley was low it didn’t stop me
I knew you were waiting.
I knew you were waiting for me

I Knew You Were Waiting(For Me)‘ ~George Michael & Aretha Franklin~

It’s Saturday morning, it’s going to be a little cooler today, but the smoke from the forest fires in British Columbia is still here and all I can think is, if it’s this smokey here 2 provinces east of BC, how bad is it right in BC. I feel for the people that are affected by the hundreds of forest fires burning there, and hope help from Mother Nature comes soon to slow them down. It’s increasingly disturbing when watching the news about what’s going on, with the weather in the world, natural disasters, political unrest, and just the general mood of society. So, I try to limit the amount of news I watch and stay active to occupy my mind, and when things start getting me down…….then I bring out the big guns to fight my moods……..I listen to music, read a good book, or if all else fails………I watch cute pet videos on youtube…..yea….even the cat ones! I know it’s bad when I resort to watching the cat videos. 😀 Have a great weekend everyone.

I don’t have much to talk about here, my outfit being skimpy and the my surroundings being white. But, here’s the details. The ‘Rie’ wet top and panties are from Blueberry.

The ”H0726′ hair is from tram, and it’s available now at Collabor88.

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.

The pose is ‘Cleanse’ from {Lyrium}.

You wouldn’t know it, but I’m at Serendipitous Sands, here. I have some beautiful shots of the seascape from there, but I opted for this all white shot.

All I Wanna Do

All I Wanna Do

It was a rainy night when
He came into sight
Standing by the road, no umbrella,
No coat
So I pulled up along side and
I offered him a ride
He accepted with a smile
So we drove for a while
I didn’t ask him his name,
This lonely boy in the rain
Fate tell me it’s right,
Is this love at first sight
Please don’t make it wrong
Just stay for the night

All I wanna do is make love to you
Say you will
You want me too
All I wanna do is make love to you
I’ve got lovin’ arms to hold on to

So we found this hotel,
It was a place I knew well
We made magic that night.
Oh, he did everything right
He brought the woman out of me,
So many times, easily
And in the morning when he woke
All I left him was a note
I told him
“I am the flower you are the seed”
We walked in the garden
We planted a tree
Don’t try to find me,
Please don’t you dare
Just live in my memory,
You’ll always be there

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I wanna do is make love to you
I’ve got lovin’ arms to hold on to

Oh, oooh, we made love
Love like strangers
All night long
We made love

Then it happened one day,
We came round the same way
You can imagine his surprise
When he saw his own eyes
I said “please, please understand
I’m in love with another man
And what he couldn’t give me, how-oh
Was the one little thing that you can”

All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You‘ ~Heart>~

The computer room is hot and I’m cranky…….well…not really cranky actually, it’s more 1 part depression, 3 parts anxiety, and 16 parts I’m-sick-of-this-heat! So, I have little patience and I cry easily, which is a weird combination, but frustration makes me cry, so does sadness, anxiety can too, I cry when I’m mad, oh……and I cry when I’m happy, I sometimes cry when I see an SPCA ad, and I’ve been known to shed a tear when I see a stray dog. I actually cry from pretty much any emotion, it’s really quite embarrassing because when I’m mad and want to get something said, it gets stuck because I’m crying, so I’m not really effective at showing anger. One thing that doesn’t make me cry is physical pain, I consider myself to have a high pain tolerance and can take quite a bit. Heck, last summer I stuck my finger in an electric hedge trimmer, cut the end of my finger all to h*ll, nail and all….and still went shopping! Someone asked me, ‘Oh wow…did it need stitches?’ and my answer was, ‘Probably!’. Yea……..not a fan of clinics or hospitals, so I put a big bandage on it and carry on with my day. I’m not sure what the limit is for when it’s time to go to the hospital, I mean I’m not going to let myself die, or anything…..but……..it did take me 5 days to decide to see a doctor when my appendix burst, I know now I shouldn’t have waited so long, but I really didn’t want to miss Thanksgiving…..it’s one of my favourite holidays. 😀

It’s all about the tattoo today! The ‘Young Wolf’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio is so intricate I could sit and look at it for an hour and still not see all the details. With the intense stare of the young wolf on the front, it’s hard not to look at it. The tattoo comes in coloured(blue highlights) and black(seen here) with it being compatible with the major mesh bodies and anything Omega driven. There’s also 4 ink tones included, so you can have a fresh or worn tattoo, your choice! It’s available now at the Vanity Event, which runs until August 25.

I’m wearing the much loved, Daisy Top’ from *Just BECAUSE* here. It’s my top of choice this summer, it’s fitted for the Maitreya, Slink(Physique/Hourglass) and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and comes in loads of colours, or an incredibly huge fatpack.

The ‘H0316’ hair is from tram. I love the 2 styles of bangs with it.

I haven’t worn glasses in ages and ages, these are ‘The Countess” glasses from Earthstones.

I’m wearing one of my favourite pairs of jeans, the ‘DWL Jeans’ from Blueberry.

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 on Maitreya.

I’ve combined the coffee cup(with bento pose) from Ana Poses with a pose from MILA, for this look.

I’m strolling along at Mother Road, enjoying the early morning sunshine.
