These Arms of Mine

These Arms of Mine

These arms of mine
They are lonely
Lonely and feeling blue
These arms of mine
They are yearning
Yearning from wanting you

And if you
Would let them
Hold you Oh how grateful I will be

These arms of mine
They are burning
Burning from wanting you
These arms of mine
They are wanting
Wanting to hold you

And if you
Would let them hold you
Ohh how grateful I will be

Come on, come on baby
Just be my little woman (yeah)
Just be my lover I need somebody,
(Somebody) To treat me right
(Ohh) I need your warm loving arms to hold me tight
And I need your tender lips too
Hold me, hold me

These Arms Of Mine‘ ~Otis Redding~

The topic of tattoos can be a touchy subject for some, but they’re pretty mainstream anymore, even I have one……well…..actually 2……but I don’t pay much attention to them anymore, they’re just there. When I say 2….I don’t mean sleeves that cover both my arms…..no…it’s just 2 little ones. I have a neighbour that’s got sleeves and he has long hair, wears a welding beanie and his dog is a Rottweiler named Kaos, knowing all that most people would think he’s definitely a biker, not that being a biker is a bad thing, of course! But he’s not…….his thing is rebuilding old cars, making rat rods and such…..I make it sound like I know what that is…but I really don’t. I just know he takes an old rusty hunk of junk and makes it a thing of beauty and that he’s one heck of a nice guy, what I’m getting at is that the days of tattoos being only for a certain type of person is gone. I say, ‘whatever floats your boat’, everyone’s different and no one has a right to judge, we all just happen to be drawing breathe at the same time in history, and since we’re all here we may as well make the most of it! And since it’s Friday that’s exactly what I’m going to do…..I’m going to stay up an hour later than usual and maybe have popcorn…..I’m livin’ large, my friends!

Vrir and I are wearing the ‘Dragon’ unisex tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio for this picture. I’m hoping you can sort out our limbs and see where one stops and the other begins. It’s lots of colour and dragons and eye catching lines, and it’s available now at the ULTRA EVENT, that starts tomorrow, December 15. Like I said, it’s unisex and compatible with all the major mesh bodies, including anything Omega driven.

I’m wearing the ‘G1020’ hair from tram, and black, no less. I haven’t worn hair this dark in a long time!

The ‘Tube Bra’ is from the ‘Diane’ set of lingerie from /erratic/.

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. I’ve added a bit of shadow from the ‘Satin Shadow’ pack from Buzzeri.

The pose is ‘Unseen Passion’ from Ana Poses and available now at The Men’s Department.

Zombie

Zombie

Another head hangs lowly
Child is slowly taken
And the violence caused such silence
Who are we mistaken

But you see it’s not me
It’s not my family
In your head, in your
Head they are fighting
With their tanks and their bombs
And their bombs and their guns
In your head,
In your head they are cryin’

In your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie
Hey, hey
What’s in your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie
Hey, hey, hey, oh
Dou, dou, dou, dou
Dou, dou, dou, dou
Dou, dou, dou, dou
Dou, dou, dou, dou

Another mother’s breakin’
Heart is taking over
When the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken

It’s the same old theme since nineteen-sixteen
In your head,
In your head they’re still fightin’
With their tanks and their bombs
And their bombs and their guns
In your head, in your head they are dyin’

In your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie
Hey, hey
What’s in your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie
Hey, hey, hey
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Hey, oh, ya, ya-a

Where has the year gone? One day I’m mowing the lawn, the next day I realize I haven’t done my Christmas shopping yet, and it’s mid December! Yea……I haven’t done my Christmas shopping, yet……I’ve started, and I’d be done if I only bought gifts for one person, but there’s a few more than that. I don’t think I’ve ever been this late, and to be honest, I still have no idea what to get. I’m going to end up being one of those people who wander around the store with a blank look hoping some miracle happens! But, there will be no miracles…….at least when it comes to shopping. I just need to think of something to get them…..that’s the whole thing……I have no idea. And when I ask, I either get a shrug, or ‘nothing’! That’s really helpful isn’t it. I guess with answers like that they can’t complain, no matter what I get them.

I’m showing off the ‘Sentiment’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear here. It’s an intricate design that looks great with anything that has a plunging neckline, and since it comes in black(seen here), henna, and white and it’s not seasonal, you can wear it anytime throughout the year. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything that’s Omega driven. It’s available now at the Vanity event, which runs until December 25.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

The Shiraz pose and chair are from Ana Poses.

I’ve put on a pair of undies for a bit of coverage here. They’re the ‘Cerise Panties’ from /erratic/.

And 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.

Radar love

Radar Love

I’ve been drivin’ all night
My hand’s wet on the wheel
There’s a voice in my head
That drives my heel
It’s my baby callin’
Says: I need you here
And it’s a half past four
And I’m shifting gear

When she is lonely
And the longing gets too much
She sends a cable
Coming in from above
Don’t need no phone at all

We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a wave in the air
Radar Love

The radio’s playing some forgotten song
Brenda Lee’s “Coming On Strong”
The road has got me hypnotized
And I’m speeding into a new sunrise

When I get lonely
And I’m sure I’ve had enough
She sends her comfort
Comin’ in from above
Don’t need no letter at all

We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a line in the sky
Radar Love

No more speed, I’m almost there
Gotta keep cool now, gotta take care
Last car to pass, here I go
And the line of cars drove down real slow

And the radio played that forgotten song
Brenda Lee’s “Coming On Strong”
And the newsman sang his same song
One more radar love is gone

When I get lonely and I’m sure I’ve had enough
She sends her comfort, coming in from above
We don’t need no letter at all

We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a line in the sky
We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a thing that’s called
Radar Love

I’m having one of those days that the unexpected keeps happening……it’s nothing serious, just little things to keep me on my toes. I’ll take this time while nothing’s going on to post this and sit for awhile……enjoying some peace and quiet. Have a good one, everybody!

This gorgeous leg tattoo is definitely one of my favourite tattoos from Carol G Tattoo Studio. The beautiful fall tone roses are so incredibly detailed and with it peeking out from a high cut dress, the tattoo and long leg demands attention. It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies, including anything Omega driven and it’s available now at Cosmopolitan, but once this round is over it’ll be at Carol G Tattoo Studio main store.

This is the long version of the ‘Mia’ dress from Ison.

The beautiful ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

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 took this picture awhile ago, and forgot to write down the pose I used, which ticks me off because I hate not naming the pose makers….the unsung heroes of SL photography.

I’m at Black Bayou Lake, where anybody who’s anybody is seen! 😛

Breathe Me

Breathe Me

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And the worst part is there’s no one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Ouch, I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah, I think that I might break
Lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Breathe Me‘ ~Sia~

This song says it all today, it speaks for me. I’m so lucky to have a man in my life who does all of these, and more…..freely. ♥

The newest release from Carol G Tattoo Studio is the ‘Aura’ tattoo exclusive to the Dubai Event. The front is as beautiful as the back and there’s more on the wrists and arms to make it complete. It’s a highly complex work or art and every time I look at it I see different details not seen on first glance. It comes in black(seen here), henna, and blue and is compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven.

The ‘H0531’ hair is from tram.

And 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.

Vrir and I are using the ‘She’s Like a Fox’ couples pose from Ana Poses. It’s a pose we could really feel with it’s gentleness and comfort.

Desperado

Desperado

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
You been out ridin’ fences for so long now
Oh, you’re a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin’ you
Can hurt you somehow

Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She’ll beat you if she’s able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can’t get

Desperado, oh, you ain’t gettin’ no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they’re drivin’ you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that’s just some people talkin’
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Don’t your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won’t snow and the sun won’t shine
It’s hard to tell the night time from the day
You’re losin’ all your highs and lows
Ain’t it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin’, but there’s a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you (let somebody love you)
You better let somebody love you before it’s too late

Desperado‘ ~The Eagles~

So, I don’t have a story to go along with this song, other than to say, I like it! I don’t have a story to go along with this picture either, so I guess the song and the picture do have something in common! This is blog post #997, and I’m drawing a blank on something to say. I’ve been here before, I’ve admitted to everyone that I have nothing to say and then carry on with the blog post, but today it just doesn’t feel right to do that. Since I started this blog, 4 years ago today, I’ve tried to be entertaining or though provoking, and there are times that I’ve been neither. But one thing I can say is, I’ve always written honestly and openly about myself. I’m not sure if I have anything worth hearing, I’ve never cared about that, but what I have discovered is that through these last 4 years, I’ve learned things about myself that maybe I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t written about it here. I think about my years on this earth and what I’ve experienced and how it’s shaped me and I can see things more clearly. So, even if no one looks at my pictures or reads my posts, that’s okay……it’s been an incredible 4 years! I still love doing this, each day I log in-world looking forward to working on something blog related and I’m proud of where I’ve come from, I keep striving to be better and I’m still learning. So I look forward to many more years doing this, and if I think I have nothing to say now……..I can’t imagine how blank my mind will be in another 4 years. I started out with one follower on flickr, and I’ve just hit the 4K mark, and I thank each and every one of you, for the faves, comments, and views……just one thing, though…….please…someone….help me out now and then by suggesting a topic for me to talk about……input people…..I need input! 😛

Ok…….I’m wearing the ‘Jewel Roses’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio and this is simply stunning! I’ve never worn many coloured tattoos, but the tones of this one are all my favourites, somewhat muted and full of autumn tones. It’s available now at the current round of Cosmopolitan, which has another week to go. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven and it comes in 4 ink tones, this is 75%.

The ‘H0906’ hair is from tram and available right now at the Hair Fair 2018. The crowds should have eased by now to make it easier to grab those styles you need, and I have to admit that tram was one of my first stops when I got there. For more info including slurls, you can check out this link.

You can just see a bit of the ‘Hera’ dress from *Just BECAUSE*, it’s a little mini dress that covers the neccessities, and not much more!

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

I’m at the beautiful Little Havana for this picture.
