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.

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.

Moondance

Moondance

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

[Chorus:]
Can I just have one a’ more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love

Well, I wanna make love to you tonight
I can’t wait ’til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you’re never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can’t hide

Moondance‘ ~Van Morrison~

It’s cloudy and cool, a bit of drizzle coming down and a light breeze from the north makes it cooler than the temperature suggests. The lights are low and the house is warm as I sit in a mostly dark computer room, with only a salt lamp casting a dim light beside the computer. The dog’s stretched out on her bed, sound asleep, and everything outside is tucked in for the night, which leaves me here to sit quietly and think. I’ve had far too much coffee today, I’ve seen too much news, and although the day was quiet, I’m a little unsettled. I can enjoy this cozy solitude though, I have a beautifully scented candle burning and I’m really tempted to get the furnace to kick in to have it really toasty in here this evening. This is my reality at this moment, but what I want to be doing? The picture is worth a thousand words, snuggled warmly in Vrir’s arms, both of us elegantly dressed, the piano awaits someone to play so we can dance long into the night, pressed close together. Because it’s a marvelous night for a moon dance, with the stars up above in the sky. And I can’t deny it’s a fantabulous night to make romance ‘neath the cover of August(?) skies. Tonight in my thoughts I’m going to dance like no one’s watching and love like I’ve never been hurt. ♥

I’m wearing the form fitting and elegant ‘Nadine Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE* for the evening of romance and dancing. It’s a new release at the main store and it’s truly gorgeous. It’s simple top leaves the perfect amount of skin for the imagination, the flowing skirt that trails beautifully behind, and the brocade detailing all make this a classic. It comes in 32 colours and is fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.

The gorgeous ‘Bloom’ hair is from Truth Hair, this is from the ‘Multitone 1’ set.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

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 one of the animations from the ‘Distressed Grand Piano, dark’ from Nutmeg and available now at Shiny Shabby.

The ‘Sepia Peonies’ from Nomad are on the piano.

All I Wanna Do

All I Wanna Do

It was a rainy night when
He came into sight
Standing by the road, no umbrella,
No coat
So I pulled up along side and
I offered him a ride
He accepted with a smile
So we drove for a while
I didn’t ask him his name,
This lonely boy in the rain
Fate tell me it’s right,
Is this love at first sight
Please don’t make it wrong
Just stay for the night

All I wanna do is make love to you
Say you will
You want me too
All I wanna do is make love to you
I’ve got lovin’ arms to hold on to

So we found this hotel,
It was a place I knew well
We made magic that night.
Oh, he did everything right
He brought the woman out of me,
So many times, easily
And in the morning when he woke
All I left him was a note
I told him
“I am the flower you are the seed”
We walked in the garden
We planted a tree
Don’t try to find me,
Please don’t you dare
Just live in my memory,
You’ll always be there

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I wanna do is make love to you
I’ve got lovin’ arms to hold on to

Oh, oooh, we made love
Love like strangers
All night long
We made love

Then it happened one day,
We came round the same way
You can imagine his surprise
When he saw his own eyes
I said “please, please understand
I’m in love with another man
And what he couldn’t give me, how-oh
Was the one little thing that you can”

All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You‘ ~Heart>~

The computer room is hot and I’m cranky…….well…not really cranky actually, it’s more 1 part depression, 3 parts anxiety, and 16 parts I’m-sick-of-this-heat! So, I have little patience and I cry easily, which is a weird combination, but frustration makes me cry, so does sadness, anxiety can too, I cry when I’m mad, oh……and I cry when I’m happy, I sometimes cry when I see an SPCA ad, and I’ve been known to shed a tear when I see a stray dog. I actually cry from pretty much any emotion, it’s really quite embarrassing because when I’m mad and want to get something said, it gets stuck because I’m crying, so I’m not really effective at showing anger. One thing that doesn’t make me cry is physical pain, I consider myself to have a high pain tolerance and can take quite a bit. Heck, last summer I stuck my finger in an electric hedge trimmer, cut the end of my finger all to h*ll, nail and all….and still went shopping! Someone asked me, ‘Oh wow…did it need stitches?’ and my answer was, ‘Probably!’. Yea……..not a fan of clinics or hospitals, so I put a big bandage on it and carry on with my day. I’m not sure what the limit is for when it’s time to go to the hospital, I mean I’m not going to let myself die, or anything…..but……..it did take me 5 days to decide to see a doctor when my appendix burst, I know now I shouldn’t have waited so long, but I really didn’t want to miss Thanksgiving…..it’s one of my favourite holidays. 😀

It’s all about the tattoo today! The ‘Young Wolf’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio is so intricate I could sit and look at it for an hour and still not see all the details. With the intense stare of the young wolf on the front, it’s hard not to look at it. The tattoo comes in coloured(blue highlights) and black(seen here) with it being compatible with the major mesh bodies and anything Omega driven. There’s also 4 ink tones included, so you can have a fresh or worn tattoo, your choice! It’s available now at the Vanity Event, which runs until August 25.

I’m wearing the much loved, Daisy Top’ from *Just BECAUSE* here. It’s my top of choice this summer, it’s fitted for the Maitreya, Slink(Physique/Hourglass) and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and comes in loads of colours, or an incredibly huge fatpack.

The ‘H0316’ hair is from tram. I love the 2 styles of bangs with it.

I haven’t worn glasses in ages and ages, these are ‘The Countess” glasses from Earthstones.

I’m wearing one of my favourite pairs of jeans, the ‘DWL Jeans’ from Blueberry.

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 on Maitreya.

I’ve combined the coffee cup(with bento pose) from Ana Poses with a pose from MILA, for this look.

I’m strolling along at Mother Road, enjoying the early morning sunshine.
