Ends Of The Earth

Ends Of The Earth

Oh, there’s a river that winds on forever
I’m gonna see where it leads
Oh, there’s a mountain that no man has mounted
I’m gonna stand on the peak

Out there’s a land that time don’t command
Wanna be the first to arrive
No time for ponderin’ why I’m a-wanderin’
Not while we’re both still alive

To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
There’s a world that was meant for our eyes to see
To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
If you won’t I must say my goodbyes to thee

Oh, there’s an island where all things are silent
I’m gonna whistle a tune
Oh, there’s a desert that size can’t be measured
I’m gonna count all the dunes

Out there’s a world that calls for me, girl
Headin’ out into the unknown
Wayfarin’ strangers and all kinds of danger
Please don’t say I’m going alone

To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
There’s a world that was meant for our eyes to see
To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
If you won’t I must say my goodbyes to thee

I was a-ready to die for you, baby
Doesn’t mean I’m ready to stay
What good is livin’ a life you’ve been given
If all you do is stand in one place

I’m on a river that winds on forever
Follow ’til I get where I’m goin’
Maybe I’m headin’ to die but I’m still gonna try
I guess I’m goin’ alone

Ends Of The Earth‘ ~Lord Huron~

Just a song for you today on this cool(‘cold’ for this time of year) Wednesday.

A new month and a new round of FaMESHed! *Just BECAUSE* has released the ‘Stacey Jeans’ and I love them! They fit perfectly, albeit a little snug, but really show off a good butt(I’ve been told I have a good butt, anyway), they make the legs long, and the waistline is perfectly placed to show off a bit of bare midriff. The jeans include both the version with the lace(seen here) and a plain version. They fit the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies and come in 2n colours or the fatpack.

I’m sporting the ‘Knotted Raglan’ shirt from Tres Blah, here. It’s on sale right now for 75L$ for each colour and it’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies.

I dropped in at the NEO Japan event to grab the ‘B&G 087’ hair from DURA Hair.

I couldn’t resist the ‘Bubble Tea, Lemon Tropic’ from Pewpew!. The perfect refreshment that has a bento pose so you can take it with you anywhere. It’s available now at ~uber~.

Also available at the NEO Japan event is the ‘Saitama’ set of poses from Ana Poses, of which this is one of the 5.

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’m hanging out at Little Havana, and I’m surprised I’ve not been kicked out for loitering.

Like the Rain

Like the Rain

I never liked the rain until i walked through it with you
Every thunder cloud that came was one more i might not get through
On the darkest day there’s always light and now i see it too
But i never liked the rain until i walked through it with you
I hear it falling in the night and filling up my mind
All the heaven’s rivers come to light and i see it all unwind
I hear it talking through the trees and on the window pane
And when i hear it i just can’t believe i never liked the rain

Like the rain i have fallen for you and i know just why you
Liked the rain always calling for you i’m falling for you now
Just like the rain

When the cloud is rolling over thunder striking me
It’s as bright as lightning and i wonder why i couldn’t see
That it’s always good and when the flood is gone we still remain
Guess i’ve known all along i just belong here with you falling

Like the rain i have fallen for you and i know just why you
Liked the rain always calling for you, i’m falling for you now
Just like the rain i have fallen for you
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/clint-black/the-greatest-hits/like-the-rain.html]
I’m falling for you know just like the rain

And when the night falls on our better days
And we’re looking to the sky
For the winds to take us high above the plains
I know that we’ll find better ways to look into the eye
Of the storms that will be calling
Forever we’ll be falling

Like the rain i have fallen for you, and i know just why you
Like the rain always calling for you, i’m falling for you now just

Like the Rain‘ ~Clint Black~

I love the rain, as most introverts do, it’s cozy to sit inside and watch the rain come down. I haven’t had much chance of that this summer, with the rain mostly staying away, but when I think about fall I look forward to cool and hopefully rainy days. Not cold enough to snow, just cool weather with a bit of a cool breeze, and rain…lots of rain. As I sit here dreaming of cool fall days, and sweater weather and pumpkins, I look out on a +31°C day with the blue haze of forest fire smoke in the air and not a cloud in the sky. Can you believe that I complained about the cold, just a few short months ago……silly me!

I’m wearing the latest release from *Just BECAUSE* in this picture, and it’s so pretty and feminine. The ‘Mavis Dress’ is a full length gown with a highly detailed upper with flowers and pearls decorating the bodice and down one side. It’s all HUD driven with 26 colours for the dress, straps, and flowers and 7 tones for the pearls, plus the flowers and shoulder straps can be toggled on/off. You can grab this dress at the August round of FaMESHed, which runs until August 27.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram and it’s one of my favourites.

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.

Fire And The Flood

Fire And The Flood

I was only walking through your neighborhood
Saw your light on, honey; in the cold I stood
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

I been getting used to waking up with you
I been getting used to waking up here
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

There you are
There you are

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

Since we met I feel a lightness in my step
You’re miles away but I still feel you
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are
Late at night when you can’t fall asleep
I’ll be lying right beside you counting sheep
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

There you are
There you are

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

Now listen here she said
Boy when you know you’ll know
And I know

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

Fire And The Flood‘ ~Vance Joy~

The June round of FaMESHed Go is up and going strong, it’s a HUD based shopping event taking you to the main stores of all participating creators. I’m wearing the ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ from *Just BECAUSE* here and it’s just in time for the summertime fun. It’s HUD driven with on/off toggles for both top and bottom and there’s tons of colours, including the printpack. The top has a toggle to make the ruffle the only thing covering the girls, so you can be a little more daring if you wish. This is one time I’m not showing the rear view, but it’s definitely worthy of seeing. You’ll probably get to see it in one of my shameless butt shots in the future.

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram and available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As 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 is pose 1 from the Tatiana’ gacha set from Poses.

I’m at Cherishville at Mysteria Cove for this shot.

5 Years Time

5 Years Time

Oh well in five years time we could be walking round a zoo
With the sun shining down over me and you
And there’ll be love in the bodies of the elephants too
And I’ll put my hands over your eyes, but you’ll peep through

And there’ll be sun sun sun all over our bodies
And sun sun sun all down our necks
And sun sun sun all over our faces
And sun sun sun so what the heck!

Cos I’ll be laughing at all your silly little jokes
And we’ll be laughing about how we used to smoke
All those stupid little cigarettes and drink stupid wine
Cos it’s what we needed to have a good time

And it was fun fun fun when we were drinking
It was fun fun fun when we were drunk
And it was fun fun fun when we were laughing
It was fun fun fun, oh it was fun

Oh well I look at you and say
It’s the happiest that I’ve ever been
And I’ll say I no longer feel I have to be James Dean
And she’ll say
“Yah well I feel all pretty happy too”
And I’m always pretty happy when I’m just kicking back with you

And it’ll be love love love all through our bodies
And love love love all through our minds
And it be Love love love all over her face
And Love love love all over mine

Although maybe all these moments are just in my head
I’ll be thinking ‘bout them as I’m lying in bed
And all that I believe, it might not even come true
But in my mind I’m havin’ a pretty good time with you

In five years time I might not know you
In five years time we might not speak
In five years time we might not get along
In five years time you might just prove me wrong

Oh there’ll be love love love
Wherever you go
There’ll be love

5 Years Time‘ ~Noah and the Whale~

In 5 years time I have no idea where I’ll be or what I’ll be doing. If I think back 5 years I don’t remember ever thinking about where I’d be 5 years later, which is now……so I guess I can’t be disappointed or surprised by anything that’s going on in my life. Back in June of 2013 I was a year and a half old in Second Life, I was probably wearing flexi hair and was all system, or what I now call…..classic avatar! I was 5 years younger, which I’m sure everyone was…..I don’t think I’m the only person on earth that suffers from getting older! In all honesty I can’t remember much about that year……I don’t think anything happened to make it stand out from the rest. So….if I think ahead 5 years, it makes it 2023, which is an incomprehensible number…..it seems like yesterday the biggest worry in the world was Y2K! Oh, if only it was still that way, instead of what’s going on in the world today. I hope my family are all still with me and healthy and the world isn’t in the turmoil it is today. I hope Second Life is still thriving and I can continue to live a virtual life with Liz keeping busy with what she keeps busy with! Oh…and may she age well, being one of those women that everyone whispers, ‘I can’t believe how old she is…she looks so young’! Will I still be doing butt shots? Hell yea………I’m going to flaunt IT while I got IT………and I might flaunt IT even a little bit after IT’s gone!

Today’s shot is taken at one of my favourite sims, Isle of May. I’m just kicking back a bit and enjoying the sights. I’m using a pose from the ‘Still Waters’ set of pose/props from Le Poppycock. The prop for the set is a rowboat, but I’ve managed to look pretty darn comfortable and relaxed in a chair here on the sim.

The ‘Luma Tube Top’ is one of my all time favourites from *Just BECAUSE*. This print is just gorgeous……but I love most orange tones!

The ‘Miyeon’ hair is from MONSO and available now at FaMESHed.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As 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.

My eyes are from the ‘Soma’ set from Zombie Suicide and my eye make up is from the ‘Sydney’ pack from La Boheme.

I Won’t Give Up

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.
