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.

What a Long Strange Trip it’s Been

What a Long Strange Trip it's Been
Six Years! Yea…..I can’t believe it either! It’s my Rezz Day today and I can’t believe it’s 6 years ago today that I came into this world. It wasn’t easy, showing up in this world all system and noobish. No, not noobish….I was plain old 100% NOOB, as anyone newly rezzed into SL is! I had a white business suit on and carrying a bag of some sort. It didn’t take me long to remove a sleeve, without knowing how, since back then a top came with 6 pieces, all of which had to be worn then adjusted to fit. I ended up at some country bar where thankfully my sister came to my rescue and took me to her place! I had absolutely no clue what was going on, I just knew it was the coolest thing I’d ever seen! Since then I’ve had difficulty adjusting to the many changes that have occurred. I never wanted mesh hands or feet, even though there was nothing at all attractive about system feet or the invisiprims that could put shoes on them. I never wanted a mesh body and Oh Em Gee, I never want a mesh head!! So, go forward 6 years and here I am, all mesh all the time and thinking it’s unimaginable to be any other way! The options for living my Second Life are limitless and I still find it to be great fun. I’ve made some incredible friends and I’ve learned there is no limit to some peoples stupidity, but hey…that’s just the joys of humanity! I love this ever evolving world and hope to be here for many years to come, I may be getting older, but I think I look pretty good for my age!! 😀

Here’s my face…yes….this is what the other side of me looks like! And, I’m wearing the newest release from !NFINITY here! The ‘Luca Choker’ is one of those accessories that stays on all the time, no matter what. I think most of us have one piece of jewelry that makes us feel naked when it’s taken off and this choker would be that for me in real life! It’s a nice simple accent that just adds to an outfit, even just jeans and a shirt. It’s unisex, HUD driven with 4 metals and 4 leather textures, it’s resize on touch and unrigged, plus it’s 100% original mesh!You can get it at the current round of Men Only Monthly, which runs until February 15.

The ‘Junghwa’ hair from [monso] is available at the current round of SaNaRaE. The pretty updo with soft face framing tendrils is so feminine!

The ‘Relaxed Blouse’ is one of my favourites from Tres Blah. It’s HUD driven with lots of bra textures, if you choose to wear it at all!

This is a really good look at the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. Note the full lips, perfectly groomed brows, and pert little nose, that come together to make me so pretty! Yea….I’m not full of myself at all!! lol

I’m using one of the 9 options from the ‘Harvest Shadow’ set from Veechi along with one of the 3 sets of eyelashes from the ‘Natural 2’ eyelash pack from Mai Bilavio. Plus, my eyes are from the ‘Nissa’ set from Zombie Suicide.

And the whole look starts with the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Just a note, the artwork behind me is from Harry Cover, who was so kind as to share his work with me to enjoy while at home. It’s framed with the ‘Repurposed Barnwood Frames’ from [QE] Designs. I’m fascinated with the whole repurposing trend going on, of course I’ve always done it….it’s just that on the farm we called it scavenging to avoid having to buy something!

My pose is from the ‘Detached Bento Pose Set’ from FOXCITY.

Another Lonely Night

Another Lonely Night

Alone in the dark, hole in my heart, turn on the radio
And the words fall out, but they got no place to go
Wasted on you, high on the fumes
Know I should let you go
But the world won’t stop
And all I got is your ghost, oh, oh oh

Another day, another lonely night
I would do anything to have you by my side
Another day, another lonely night
Don’t wanna throw away another lonely life

No time to sleep, all that I see, are old memories of you
Yeah I try my best, but there’s no one left for me to lose
Tear in my eye, I drive through the night, as far as I can from you
And I don’t give a f*ck if the sun comes up, yeah
It’s just another

Another day, another lonely night
I would do anything to have you by my side
Another day, another lonely night
Don’t wanna throw away another lonely life

No I don’t give a f*ck if the sun comes up, yeah
It’s just another

Another day, another lonely night
I would do anything to have you by my side
Another day, another lonely night
Don’t wanna throw away another lonely life

Another Lonely Night ~Adam Lambert~

Just a song for you today, I took the liberty of slightly censoring the lyrics with a well placed asterisk or two. But, you know what I mean. 🙂

This is a shot I took this morning on a whim. I’m wearing the ‘Kate Cover-up’ in pink from /erratic/. It comes with two versions, one sheer and this one, I’m shy and don’t like to show too much. 🙂

This hair is one of my favourites from -Mina- Hair. It’s ‘Arwen’ from the blacks pack.

I’ve closed my eyes and added the ‘Closed Eyes Applier’ for the Catwa heads from Izzie’s. It really makes a seamless and well defined eyelid.

As usual, my skin is ‘Raine’ from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using one of the six poses from the ‘A Bit Shy’ set from .M I L A.

And I’m at home with my bed, which is from the ‘Stockholm Bedroom’ set from ~BAZAR~. The house plants are from {what next}. The Armchair is from the ‘Granny’s Winter Cottage’ gacha set from 8f8. And the ‘Fiddle Leaf Tree, in the corner is from dust bunny.

Cold, Cold Hands

Cold, Cold Hands

The old saying is ‘cold hands, warm heart’, but I have no idea if it’s true or not. I like to think that regardless of the temperature of my hands, my heart is warm. I don’t think how the body works has anything to do with personality traits, it would be more accurate if the saying was, ‘cold hands, poor circulation’, or something like that. If you want to know if someone has a warm heart, just look in their eyes, the eyes can tell you what you need to know. But, it’s not about looking at the eyes themselves, it’s seeing what’s behind them. To say someone has blue or brown eyes means nothing, it’s how much love is in them, or how much hate, anger, or indifference. Does the persons eyes smile when the lips do, or do they remain cold or dead. But, back to the cold hands that I mentioned earlier, I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but here it’s impossible to not have cold hands, or feet, or any other part of ones anatomy! Because here, it’s not just your a** that’s going to freeze off, it’s everything. It’s noon right now and I’m sitting in the mid day sunshine, which is very nice, but the sun hides the true day. It’s a balmy -27°C outside right now with a light breeze which makes it feel like -37°C, which isn’t terrible, heck it’s warmed up quite a bit from early this morning. When I got out of bed it was -34°C with a breeze making it feel like -45°C! That is the kind of cold that can take your breath away, literally! FYI, the weather forecast for this area is this kind of cold for the foreseeable future, niiiice! 😛

I went to a few snowy sims looking for a place to take a picture and I decided on BinemustSnow at the Binemust sim.

Since I’m out in the cold, I’m dressed for the weather, kind of. I donned my ‘Puff Jacket Set’ from fame femme. The high neck and long sleeves do help against the cold, but that little gap on the midriff sends chills right through me.

I got into the new round of ~uber~ and grabbed the ‘Swear Lexi Engineer Boots’ from Lapointe & Bastchild! The texturing is top notch with a huge HUD with lots of options, including worn or clean boots and socks that can be worn or not. They fit perfectly over the ‘Swear Aspen Leggings’, also from L&B.

The boots work perfectly with the ‘Kaylah Jeans’ from Just Because, too!

My hair is ‘Pepper, naturals’ from [KoKoLoReS]. I love the shorts styles!

This picture is doctored a little bit so the skin isn’t accurately portrayed here, but it’s the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is the ‘Mhm’ pose from Del May.

Goodbye

Goodbye

I’ve got our love to remember
That will never change
I have you in my head
And though I’ll never hold you
And I’m still asking why
I guess that this is goodbye

My dreams suddenly seem so empty
I could go it on my own
But I feel like playin’ dead
And for what feels like the first time
I don’t know where you are tonight
I guess that this is goodbye

We lived half our lives together
A cloud full of tears
It’s a lot of weight to bear
And the sun, it may be shining
But there’s an ocean in my eyes
Cause I know that this is goodbye
Cause I know that this is goodbye
I know that this is goodbye

Goodbye ~Eddie Vedder~

I’m a person of few words this morning. I’ve been a bit of a downer of late and, as such, it’s been a struggle to find any creativity. I’ve managed to get a picture I’m OK with, and an outfit I love, so since I have little to say, I guess 2 out of 3 ain’t bad! Oh…..and if the pic or the lack of topic for the blog post today doesn’t float your boat…..enjoy some Eddie Vedder…he can make any day perfect!

Today it’s all about the boots! The ‘Addison Boots’ are from Ingenue and exclusive to the fall round of Shoetopia! They fit the SLink and Maitreya mid feet and come in twelve colours. The first thing I thought when I saw these was…omg…I love these boots, but then I thought….oh…but what pants to wear with them! The age old SL problem of pants under boots is completely negated here! These boots are a loose fit around the ankle and also not so high that they interfere with the pant leg. These are the perfect autumn boots!

The ‘Taylor Suede Leggings’ from Emery are available at the September round of ~uber~ and are a must have for this fall fashion season. They come in 7 colours and are an exclusive fit for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m ready to bring out the heavier tops for fall so the first one I wanted to wear is the ‘Quilted Crop Top’ from Tetra. It’s super long sleeves and nice midriff baring hemline make it one of my favourites.

The ‘HOTARU’, black hair is from Argrace.

To make sure my ankles stay warm I’ve added the ‘Cozy Tights’ from Izzie’s.

There’s not much detail seen here, but my whole look starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is ‘Wall Sulk’ from Del May.

I’m using the ‘Airport Scene, Rare’ from Pseudo.
