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.

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.

Looking for the Summer

Looking for the Summer

Look deep into the April face
A change has clearly taken place
Looking for the summer

The eyes take on a certain gaze
And leave behind the springtime days
Go looking for the summer

This ain’t no game of kiss and tell
The implications how you know so well
Go looking for the summer

The time has come and they must go
To play the passion out that haunts you so
Looking for the summer

Remember love how it was the same
We scratched and hurt each others growing pains
We were looking for the summer

And still I stand this very day
With a burning wish to fly away
I’m still looking
Looking for the summer

Looking For The Summer‘ ~Chris Rea~

I’ve not done a weather report on my part of the world in awhile, so here it is! It’s cold……..relatively speaking…….and snowy…….with some rain thrown in and…did I mention cold? September was trucking along fairly well early on, we had warm autumn weather with warm breezes and the harvest was in full swing…..then……it started to suck. We got a couple rainy days, then the highs for the days got lower and lower……then a couple days ago it snowed, and it’s not gone yet!! We had flurries yesterday and a high of +4°C…like…….wtf? The sad part about cold weather like this, this early is that every day we have a cold day now is one less day of nice weather we’ll have. The normal highs right now are +14°C, so we’re a long way from that and the coming week looks a bit better, but not up to the norm. So, here I sit…..looking for the summer, hell I’d be happy just to find autumn….it’s way to early for this sh*t!

It appears I’m looking for something here, and since I’m at the lovely Summers Wind, I’m sure to find summer here.

I’m wearing the gorgeous ‘Lillian Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE* here, and I think it’s one of the prettiest gowns ever. The panel down the side has a sheer(seen here) and solid version and the simple neckline keeps all the attention there. If you love this look but aren’t in the mood for a gown, the ‘Leanne Dress’ is the same upper, but it’s mid-thigh length is a little more casual and perfect for cocktails.

The 2018 version of the Hair Fair started on the 22nd and against my better judgement I made a visit. The ‘M120’ hair from .:CHEVEUX:. is new and exclusive to the event. If you’ve managed to get in to shop and have maybe gone over your budget, at least you can rest easy knowing a portion of every purchase goes towards Wigs for Kids, such a great cause to support. There are a bunch of LM’s that will get you to the different areas of the event, so search it in-world for all the LM’s. Here’s one that I used successfully, it’s the Foils West cam shopping sim, good luck.

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.

When I took this picture I failed to make note of the pose I used, and with my memory such as it is, for the life of me I can’t remember what it was. Sorry.

R U Mine?

R U Mine?

I’m a puppet on a string
Tracy Island,
Time-traveling diamond
Cutter shaped heartaches
Come to find you
Four in some velvet morning
Years too late
She’s a silver lining
Lone ranger riding
Through an open space
In my mind when she’s not right there beside me

I go crazy ’cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory
And I can’t help myself,
All I wanna hear her say is “Are you mine?”

Well, are you mine?
Are you mine?
Are you mine?

I guess what I’m trying to say
Is I need the deep end
Keep imagining meeting,
Wished away entire lifetimes
Unfair we’re not somewhere
Misbehaving for days
Great escape
Lost track of time and space
She’s a silver lining climbing on my desire

And I go crazy ’cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory
And I can’t help myself,
All I wanna hear her say is “Are you mine?”

Well, are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)
Are you mine? (or just mine tonight?)
Are you mine? (are you mine? Mine?)

And the thrill of the chase
Moves in mysterious ways
So in case I’m mistaken,
I just wanna hear you say
“You got me, baby. Are you mine?”

She’s a silver lining
Lone ranger riding
Through an open space
In my mind when she’s not right there beside me

I go crazy ’cause here isn’t where I wanna be
And satisfaction feels like a distant memory
And I can’t help myself,
All I wanna hear her say is “Are you mine?”

Well, are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow?)
Are you mine? (or just mine tonight?)
Are you mine? (are you mine tomorrow, or just mine tonight?)

R U Mine?‘ ~Arctic Monkeys~

This song is new to me, well…..the Arctic Monkeys are new to me, too….but I love this video…and the song too! If you read the comments so many of them mention the lead singers jawline being razor sharp! I always read the comments about the song I’m listening too, some are hilarious….some are sad….and some are just stupid! I don’t understand the mean ones, do some people have nothing better to do than listen to a song they don’t like and then take time comment on it? I think it’s a good thing that I’ll never understand people like that…..it’s safe to say that I’d never do that…..I mean…..just move along…..move along…it’s not the song you’re looking for!

The tattoo is all I’m wearing here, but it covers quite a bit so I don’t feel nekkid at all! What you don’t see here is that it extends down the left leg in a beautiful way, and I LOVE the hands!! I can’t imagine getting a tattoo on my palms, but in the virtual world it’s stunning! The ‘Mystic’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio comes in black(seen here), white, and henna and it’s compatible with the major mesh bodies including anything Omega driven. It’s exclusive for the Vanity Event, which runs until September 25.

You can only see a little bit of the ‘G1204’ hair from tram. It’s one of my all time favourites!

This pose is the female half of one of the poses from the ‘Good Girl’ set of poses from Black Cat. I tweaked my head and neck a bit with Animare.

I’m kneeling on the ‘Distressed Grand Piano’ from Nutmeg and the ‘Sepia Peonies’ from NOMAD are beside me.

Lovesong

Lovesong

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you

I’ll always love you
I’ll always love you
‘Cause I love you
Love, love, love…

Lovesong‘ ~The Cure~

I was running to get into the September round of Collabor88 bright and early yesterday and when I left I had an empty wallet, and my arm was sore from carrying so many bags! So I made multiple costume changes throughout the day but had no wardrobe malfunctions, so all in all it was a good day!

The first thing I grabbed was the ‘Long Sweater’ from Tres Blah! It was one of those instances that the phrase, ‘ask and ye shall receive’ fit! Since it’s sweater weather in my real world a new one is perfect timing, and Vrir and I had discussed all the great things about oversized sweaters, so when I got to C88 it was like it had a ray of sunlight on it and it was calling my name! I got the fat pack to get the 5 bonus colours. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza(Isis/Freya).

The ‘Yumi’ hair is from [monso], and it’s new and exclusive to Collabor88, too!

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 ‘Model 823’ from Manifeste.
