One

One

I’ve played the teacher, the preacher, guru
Maintaining postures separating me and you
As if the thoughts of God were mine and mine to speak
I’ve listened with an agenda so I could prove
All of the shit I believe to be true
Just to hide the fear of being weak

Burn the scorecards, balance out the scales
We are one wind distracted by our different sails
Underneath what’s detectable with eyes
Every particle’s vibrating with the same life

If we keep running around deciding who’s right and wrong
Then tell me, where are we headed?
How can we all belong
When all our logic is colliding
And it’s constantly dividing me from you

So damn those eager protestations on your tongue
Shut your brain up long enough to hear the lowly hum
Underneath what’s detectable with eyes
Every particle’s vibrating with the one life

Beyond the land of the right, the land of the wrong
There’s a field waiting for us
All the notions of you, the notions of me
We finally agree don’t mean a thing

Burn the scorecards, balance out the scales
(We are the land of the right, the land of the wrong)
We are one wind distracted by our different sails
(There’s a field waiting for us)
Damn those eager protestations on your tongue
(All the notions of you, the notions of me)
Shut your brain up long enough to hear the lowly hum
(We finally agree don’t mean a thing)
Underneath what’s detectable with eyes
(Beyond the land of the right, the land of the wrong)
Every particle’s vibrating with the one life
(There’s a field)

One‘ ~Birdtalker~

I knew this would happen, I spend all winter with nothing but time to blog, drink coffee, and generally accomplish nothing of any meaning. And then when spring does arrive it’s a mad dash to get ahead on the work that needs doing, which means my blogging and coffee drinking time is cut back to not a whole lot. So I’m taking a mid morning break, with coffee of course, to post this picture with a really nice song and say hello to everyone! Hey there, it’s me! 😀 Have a great day, all! ♥

This picture is all about the ‘Flower’ pose from Shadow’s Poses! It’s Lou’s latest release and the soft feminine lines and delicate white rose make this one perfect for a dreamy sort of photo. The package includes the animation, pose ball, and white rose prop, so you’re all set to get the perfect shot, wherever you may be!

I’m wearing the ‘Eden’ brassiere and thong in ‘pearl’ from /erratic/.

The ‘G0127’ hair is from tram.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

The ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone is from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’mesh body from Maitreya. I’m using the ‘Catwa Closed Eyes Applier’ from Izzie’s, too.

Profile Perv’n

Profile Perv'n

Ha……I love reading profiles! Just so you know, if you see me somewhere….I’m probably reading your profile as you’re looking at me. I can’t resist, there’s so much entertainment in it, and some very creative people out there. I have to admit mine needs some work, I’ve never put much in it, but I have to change that. There are lots of profiles with no information at all in them, then there’s the all-business profiles. There’s the ‘I pledge my love to you’ picks and the links to te persons favourite sims and stores! I do read the all-business links, because I’ve found some amazing places that way, so please share those kinds of things in you profile. The ‘pledge my love to you’ picks don’t do much for me, they’re usually over mushy and I’m just not into that. I don’t think anyone has one of those for me in their profile, so I’m happy about that. But, I do show up in my sister, Gillian Galicia‘s, profile! A couple of times! The great sister that she is added me to her picks back in 2012 when I was a noob, picture and all. Then, the other day she thought our conversation deserved saving, so there I am again! But this time, when I’m all meshed up and looking good…she doesn’t add a picture of me to it! WTF, sista? So, I’m going to see what dated pic from 2012 I can come up with and I’ll jot down a few lines about our escapades in Second Life, she has managed to capture a couple of my more questionable conversation topics in her profile, so I say ‘tit for tat’, wonderful Sis o’mine!

I look a little anguished in the picture, and I didn’t set out to do that, it just kind of happened. I’ve been struggling with a downer of a mood for a few days and I guess it’s showing! But, I’m wearing the super good looking ‘Jacket Shirt Set’ that’s available at the fame femme main store. The jacket comes in 10 colours and can be worn with or without the top. The top’s HUD driven with 6 colours and the cuffs and part of the hood are also colour change with 3 options. It’s exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body, has wonderful detailing and with spring officially starting tomorrow, jacket weather is always a possibility.

The ‘DWL Classic Jeans’ from Blueberry are one of my all time faves.

The MAYU hair is from Argrace.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’m using the ‘Closed Eyes’ appliers for the Catwa heads from Izzie’s here.

You can’t really see it in detail, but the ‘Beetle Pearl Choker’ in gold is from Burial.

I was out pose shopping the other day and came across Korper Poses! I found a few packs that will easily suit my needs and they were very reasonably priced. This is from the ‘Leaning Bento’ pack of poses, which contains 6 poses with pose balls included.

I’m at Tralala’s Diner here, perched high atop the ruins!

Stir My Soul

Stir My Soul

After taking a picture, I take time to think about what I want to say, and usually on weekends I give my mind and opinions a day off and take a musical interlude. But, since I had one a few days ago I feel I should think a little bit this fine Saturday morning. So, after an hour or so wondering what to write, while I vacuumed no less, it came to me to talk a bit about one of the things that Second Life offers us. I’ve really come to enjoy the live music scene, that’s alive and well in-world. The quality of artists is truly amazing and the variety is vast. I take in at least one live show a day, and enjoy the time just sitting quietly listening, this morning it’s an early show by one of my favourites, singer/songwriter/guitarist Jack Slade. His sad songs and soulful guitar always stirs my soul. There really is something for everyone when looking for live entertainment, the thing to do is just go! Find a scheduled show and drop in! I follow The Keys Management Group on FaceBook and get a rundown each day of the performances going on around the grid. There’s something magical about live music that makes everything feel all right.

The ‘My Heart Jewelry Set’ is a new release from !NFINITY and it’s perfection is in it’s simplicity. The set of necklace and earrings, in either gold or silver, are 100% original mesh, resize on touch, and the necklace is HUD driven to add your initial, an ‘L’ for me! 😀

The ‘Junghwa’ hair is from [monso].

I’ve added the ‘Catwa Closed Eye’ applier from Izzie’s here, for the smooth closed eye look.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is pose 29 from M I L A Poses.

Dream On

Dream On

Every time I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dusk to dawn

Isn’t that the way?
Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody’s sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life’s in books’ written pages
Live and learn from fools and from sages
You know it’s true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream yourself a dream come true
Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream until your dreams come true

Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream on, dream on,
Dream on, dream on, ah

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away…

‘Dream On’ written by Steven Tyler performed here by Boyce Avenue.

It’s a musical interlude for you today! I bring you Boyce Avenue with an acoustic version of ‘Dream On’ by Aerosmith. I love when rock songs are done acoustically, it really simplifies the music and puts the focus on the lyrics instead. I love this version from Boyce Avenue, the guitar playing is pure perfection and his dreamy voice takes me away. So, enjoy your day, whichever day it might be where you are. I’m going to get another cup of coffee and spend the next 6 hours watching videos on YouTube!

The January round of Limit8 will be open for business until February 13 and LEGAL INSANITY has the ‘Arla Belted Skirt’ exclusive to the event. The skirt comes in eight colours and can be purchased as a fatpack, which is HUD driven with options to colour the belt and skirt separately. It’s really form fitting with a high waist to show of your curves and the booty is pretty damn fine! It’s fitted exclusively for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The ‘Neva Top’ is the latest release at the main store of /erratic/ and it’s a perfect pairing with the skirt! It comes in 16 separate colours but the fatpack includes 4 bonus colours, so you know that I had to get the fatpack. It’s really a no brainer when it comes to /erratic/, I know I’ll wear it many times.

The ‘Faith-Hope_Love’ tattoo is from Carol G Tattoo Wear and I love the positive message it sends. I love a chest tattoo, I like to think of it as a test for the guys, they can maybe improve their reading skills while staring where they shouldn’t be staring! It comes with 3 ink tones and is compatible with all the major mesh bodies, including Omega enabled ones, plus the classic avatars.

entangled poses has cleared the main area of the clearance pose sets and now there’s 2 new sets available, both perfect for your posing needs. I’m using one of the 3 poses from the ‘Larisa’ set.

The ‘Shirabe’ hair is from Argrace.

And my whole look starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added a bit of eye make up from the ‘Dark Metals’ eye shadow set from Izzie’s.

I’ve been making Tralala’s Diner my sim of choice, lately. I don’t think I’ll ever run out of neat little areas to take a picture.

Favourite Things and a Few Random Thoughts

Favourite Things and a Few Random Thoughts

You know the song ‘My Favourite Things’ from The Sound of Music, it’s not really a Christmas song, but I only ever hear it this time of year. I have to confess I’ve never seen the movie in it’s entirety, just pieces of it here and there. I’m not a big Julie Andrews fan, and the whole premise just seems a little too pat, for me. I don’t even really like most Christmas movies, and although I love old movies I’ve never seen Miracle on 34th Street or It’s a Wonderful Life. I do enjoy White Christmas but mainly because I can sing along, when alone of course. I’ve not seen Scrooged, Home Alone, The Santa Clause, Elf, or Jim Carey in The Grinch, none of them even remotely appeal to me! I’ll watch Christmas Vacation if it happens to be on, but I don’t consider Lethal Weapon a Christmas movie just because it’s set at Christmas time, although it is considered one. I guess all I’m doing is cementing my reputation for being anti-Christmas in everyone’s mind. But to get back to the topic I started with, I wanted to mention a few of my favourite things this time of year, to show that even a Grinch can enjoy some parts of the festive season. I love Mandarin Oranges, which we call Christmas oranges here because it’s the only time of year they’re available. Each orange wrapped in it’s own paper wrapper and packed in a festive box, their aroma makes me feel like I’m a kid again. I like driving around and looking at Christmas displays in peoples yards, whether in the city or the country. I like eggnog, not the home made kind, but the stuff in a carton, I add a bit of milk to thin it down a bit, it’s pretty rich. I think Poinsettia are very pretty, the traditional red ones are the best. I know everyone would expect me to say that getting gifts is pretty darn great, and it is, but I’d prefer to get or give a gift any time of year. If I find something that someone I know would really like, I don’t need a reason to give a gift, other than I want to. With that being said, if I receive a gift for no other reason than the person wants to give me one, that makes it all the more special, it tells me I’m in their thoughts! (15 minutes later) I’m sitting here trying to think of more things that I like about Christmas, and unless I give up and carry on with the rest of this post, I’ll be sitting here all night. So, I’ll carry on…..let’s begin!

I think I look sad here, and I didn’t mean to, it just happened. I was just playing around yesterday in-world and I liked this picture. So I thought I’d share it.

The tattoo is the ‘Batra & Leok’ tattoo from Isuka. It’s a full body tattoo but can be worn in two parts and it comes in 3 ink tones, this is the ‘fresh’ tone.

The ‘Gia’ hair is from Tableau Vivant and is at the December round of Kustom9, which opened yesterday.

I’m wearing my all time favourite skin here, ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh head from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the fifteen colour options from the ‘Dark Metallic Eye shadow’ pack from Izzie’s.

My eyes are from the ‘Nissa’ set of eyes from Zombie Suicide. My lashes are from the ‘natural 2’ eyelash pack from Mai Bilavio.
