Ship Of Fools

Ship of Fools

On waves of love my heart is breaking
And stranger still my self control I can’t rely on anymore
New tides surprise – my world it’s changing
Within this frame an ocean swells – behind this smile I know it well

Beneath a lover’s moon I’m waiting
I am the pilot of the storm – adrift in pleasure I may drown
I built this ship – it is my making
And furthermore my self control I can’t rely on anymore
I know why – I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around – back to my loving ground

Who claims that no man is an island
While I land up in jeopardy – more distant from you by degrees
I walk this shore in isolation
And at my feet eternity draws ever sweeter plans for me
I know why – I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around – back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no – ship of fools —

Ship Of Fools‘ ~Robert Plant~

I don’t have much to say today, I’m sorry to say. I suppose I could make up a story about why I’m laying on a piano with a skull, but I don’t have it in me today! I suppose I could give you a weather report, but I ask myself, ‘does anyone even give a f***?’! I could say that I saw Robert Plant way back in the day for his ‘Now and Zen’ tour, but again I’d ask that same question. And honestly, I don’t think anyone does….heck……I know I don’t! 😀

The October round of the Pose Fair is open for the entire month and Le Poppycock has the ‘Necromantic’ gacha set exclusive for it. The set contains 14 bento poses, with props including skulls, skeletons, butterflies, and violins. Perfect for October spookiness. I’m using the ‘Possession’ pose with skull and butterfly prop, I have to admit there’s something weird about laying naked on a piano with a skull, but I’ve never been one to shy away from weird! 😀 There’s also a group gift available for Pose Fair group members and like I said, the Pose Fair runs until October 31.

The enchanting ‘H0928’ hair is from tram and available now at Collabor88. There’s 2 versions included, and as always, I got HUD A.

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 laying on the ‘Distressed Grand Piano, dark’ from Nutmeg. And the ‘Sepia Peonies’ are from NOMAD.

Where Peaceful Waters Flow

Where Peaceful Waters Flow

Restless hearts, it has been a long time,
Out here on the journey, for a glimpse of paradise,
It’s getting hard to find a place to go,
Where peaceful waters flow;

I took a walk past the old saxon well,
Down by the cathedral, I heard the chapel bell,
And joined the people singing for a way to go,
Where peaceful waters flow;

And if you don’t know by now, you never will,
Only love can find the door,
If you could see it now, it’s in your hands,
Only love can reach the shore, to heaven,

Always, she is standing by my side,
She’s my inspiration, and she’s my battle cry,
And in her arms is the only place I know,
Where peaceful waters flow;
And if you don’t know by now, you never will,
Only love can find the door,
If you could see it now, it’s in your hands,
Only love can reach the shore, forevermore,
Where peaceful waters flow…

Where Peaceful Waters Flow‘ ~Chris De Burgh~

I’m adrift on peaceful waters, feeling peaceful in a busy world. There are times that a person has to just step back from the rigors of daily life and recharge. Today I’m recharging on the water with the help of the ‘Castway’ gacha set from Le Poppycock. The set consists of 14 poses, with either a raft or a palm tree prop. The poses are all relaxing and with the props added to your avatar you can soak up the sun anywhere you want. The set is available now at The Liaison Collaborative, which runs until July 26.

One can’t fully enjoy the sun and breeze while on the water without proper attire, and for this I chose the ‘Irma Bikini’ from *Just BECAUSE*. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique). and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies and comes in loads of colour options.

The ‘G0819’ 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.

This Just In…….

This Just In.......

This just in……..someone was snapping pictures while Liz Winterstorm was on a break from her long day with photographers at the beach last week. It seems she reached the limit of her patience when one of the photographers asked something of her that she wasn’t willing to do. There’s no word at this time of what that might have been, but she stormed off the set and was seen snatching this ice cream cone from a 5 year old child, while in a fit of rage! The Mother of the child chased after her, but she refused to give it back and then proceeded into the water, not looking back. It’s believed that Liz has become hard to manage when working and an unknown source says everyone around her is fed up with her. “She used to be so nice and now no one can say anything to her without her yelling and screaming and threatening to quit!” says an insider. This isn’t the first incident with ice cream that Liz has been involved in, last month she was seen buying a 4 liter pail of her favourite flavour, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and when she saw someone with a camera she yelled epithets at them while running after them and swinging the frozen pail of ice cream like a weapon. Only time will tell how she manages, if or when she reaches the breaking point, everyone just hopes there’s enough ice cream within reach for her to calm down, while her staff calls the doctors.

Ok, none of this is true..you do know that, don’t you? I came by this ice cream cone completely on the up and up and no 5 year old was deprived of the treat. The ‘Ice Cream Party’ gacha set is part of the June round of PocketGACHA from Amitie. The set you’re playing for has 7 single commons, and 2 multi person RARE poses, all with props included. I’m using pose 2 from the set and although the ice cream isn’t my favourite flavour…it’s still damn good! PocketGACHA is a monthly HUD based gacha fair that’s super easy, with no endless TP’ing to get into the sim and only to find mega lag and crashing. Just stay home….try the demos……play all the gacha you can handle…and enjoy! 😀

I’m wearing the ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ from *Just BECAUSE* here, I had promised you’d see a rear view last time I wore it and I didn’t want to disappoint. It’s HUD driven with on/off toggles for both top and bottom plus the top has a toggle to make the ruffle the only part covering your girls. It comes in tons of colours, including the printpack and as always the fatpack has every colour you could want. The ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ is available at the JB main store for the FaMESHedGo event, which is ongoing til the end of the month.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from HUD A 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.

Hold Back The River

Hold Back The River

Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between
Tried to square not being there
But it’s there that I should’ve been

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Once upon a different life
We rode our bikes into the sky
But now we’re caught against the tide
Those distant days all flashing by

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Oh, oho, oho, oho, oho
Oho, oho, oho, oho

Lonely water, lonely water,
Won’t you let us wander?
Let us hold each other?
Lonely water, lonely water,
Won’t you let us wander?
Let us hold each other?

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river,
So I can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river
Hold…

Hold Back The River‘ ~James Bay~

I was going to try to find a song that related to the mood of this picture, but since it’s Saturday and I’m in a good mood, I figured I’d pick a song I like and go with that, regardless of matching the picture. I’ve always written blog posts with feeling, matching my mood of moment. I can’t say ‘mood of the day’ because I never have one mood for an entire day, well I do sometimes……but it seems that only the truly dark moods can last for days without being altered. Whereas, the happy moods always seem a little bit fragile and can leave me in a heartbeat and be replaced with usually something not so happy. I don’t think I’ve ever had a good mood get better in that way. My moods can plummet from the slightest things, usually having to do with others in my life. I’ve always wondered if everyone is like this, and they’re just better at controlling it, I’ve never been able to control it…..I’m just full of free flowing emotion that can get swept away with the tide so easily. But today is a good day, although……it’s only 5:30 AM…..I’ve had coffee and not seen or spoken to anyone yet….after this…all bets are off! 😀

The main thing to focus on in this picture is the pose! I saw the ad for this set of poses from IntoXx and knew I had to attach my PocketGacha HUD and work at getting it. The June round of PocketGacha started yesterday and I haven’t done much shopping on it yet, since I was so focused on getting this RARE pose. Remember when people used to say, ‘talk to the hand’? I haven’t heard that in a long time! For your copy of the PocketGacha HUD just drop in to the PG HQ and you can get right at all the gacha fun. You can find more poses for men, women and couples at the IntoXx mainstore.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

I’m wearing the ‘Sahara Dress’ from Tetra, I love the long cool look of it!

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.

Friday Fun

Friday Fun

So, after getting through a rough couple weeks, I’m ready for some Friday Fun! And what exactly is Friday Fun, you ask? Well, it could be anything, really! For me, it’s just finding a little bit of peace, after some pretty stressful days. So, since I did retail therapy during those trying times, I’m not going shopping. I took in quite a few live shows in the last few evenings, so I might do that again this evening. Heck, I think I’ll even stay up later than normal, and although I’d love to have a few Caesars, they’ll have to be virgin since I don’t drink! But that’s doable….I have what I need for them and I can pretend I’m getting drunk. I can slur my words, wobble when I walk and since I’ll be in world but alone in RL, I can hug random people in-world and tell them how much they mean to me, even if I don’t know them! I try to have fun in Second Life no matter what’s going on in my real life, and I think that’s most important! Why would I bring any unhappiness in-world with me, when I can be and do anything I want while I’m here. It’s not always easy when bad things are happening in life, but even the smallest bit of enjoyment can be an improvement over reality. So, get out there and have some fun, doing whatever floats your boat! 😀

I’ve been sitting at the bus stop for awhile, just reading and getting a cold butt, but hopefully the bus is coming along any minute and I can get where I need to be. I’m sitting at the ‘Urban Bus Stop Scene’ from the ‘Bus Stop props and scenes’ gacha from KraftWork, and available now on the one and only HUD driven gacha, PocketGacha! The set includes 6 common and 1 rare, all with lots of ways to customize! The January round of PocketGacha runs until the end of the month!

The book and sitting pose are part of the ‘Book Lovers’ set of props and poses from Le Poppycock. I’ve used this set before and it’s so versatile. There’s books and cats for props, but unless a stray cat comes around I thought it unlikely I’d be petting one here!

My outfit for this little outing is the incredible ‘Leather Jacket & Sweater’ from fame femme! This is the Black version of the jacket and can be worn with or without the sweater, which is HUD driven with 11 really pretty colours.

The ‘DWL Jeans, classic, skinny’ are from Blueberry.

I know you can only see enough of the boots I’m wearing to know that I have some on, they are the versatile ‘Tactical Flip Boots’ from [VALE KOER].

The ‘WAKANA’ hair is from Argrace, it’s one of my all time faves!

I started with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.
