Black Horse

Two, three, four.

Well my heart knows me better than I know myself
So I’m gonna let it do all the talking.
I came across a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree.

I felt a little fear upon my back.
He said, “Don’t look back, just keep on walking.”
When the big black horse said, “Look this way,”
Said, “Hey, lady, will you marry me?”

But I said, “No, no, no, no-no-no.”
I said, “No, no, you’re not the one for me.
No, no, no, no-no-no.”
I said, “No, no, you’re not the one for me.”

And my heart hit a problem in the early hours.
So, I stopped it dead for a beat or two.
But I cut some cord, and I shouldn’t have done it,
And it won’t forgive me after all these years.

So, I sent it to a place in the middle of nowhere
With a big black horse and a cherry tree.
Now it won’t come back ’cause it’s—oh—so happy,
And now I’ve got a hole for the world to see.

And it said no, no, no, no-no-no.”
Said, “No, no, you’re not the one for me.
No, no, no, no-no-no-no.”
Said, “No, no, you’re not the one for me.”

Not the one for me.

Said, “No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
You’re not the one for me.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
You’re not the one for me.”

Big black horse and a cherry tree.
I can’t quite get there ’cause my heart’s forsaken me.
Big black horse and a cherry tree.
I can’t quite get there ’cause my heart’s forsaken me.

Black Horse and a Cherry Tree‘ ~KT Tunstall~

I’ve always loved this song and I think it suits the picture well. When I was a teen I wanted a horse sooooo bad, there was cows galore, but the only horse was Prince, a great big gelding that my Granddad had. I was never allowed to ride him because he was a handful but I had memories of being on the other horses Granddad had had when I was little. Mandy was the one I remember best…..a white mare that was completely bomb proof with kids. I did get a horse eventually, her name was Sandy and she was bright red that really shone in the sunshine. She wasn’t even close to being bomb proof and I landed on my butt on the ground a few times, but I always enjoyed riding. Mostly alone but sometimes with Granddad on Prince. I don’t have a horse now, but it’s crossed my mind to get a couple. I don’t know if I ever will, but I think if I do it’ll be draft horses….a Clydesdale or Percheron maybe. I believe in the saying, ‘go big or go home’, at least when it comes to horses! 😀

You’ll notice the great sleeve tattoo I’m wearing today, it’s called ‘Nelly’ and it’s from Carol G Tattoo Wear. This is the black version and there’s a colour version also and they’re available now at Cosmopolitan. I love the intricate swirls and the fading as it nears the shoulder and hand. It’s perfect for summer with sleeveless tops and swimsuits to show it off. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything that’s Omega driven. This round of Cosmopolitan runs until June 30.

I’m using a guys pose……which isn’t anything new for me, the men’s poses always have an aloof and almost uncaring look that I’m drawn to. This one seems to say, ‘I just don’t really give a sh*t!’. It’s from IntoXx and the good news is that it’s FREE, to anyone!! No group needed, just stop in at the IntoXx main store and click on it.

To show the tattoo off I’m wearing the ‘Bella Tank Top’ in ‘nude’ from Tres Blah.

The jeans are the ‘Lila Jeans’ from Blueberry.

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram.

As always, my skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at Isle of May, in one of the many chairs scattered about, for this shot.

Sunrise

Sunrise, sunrise
Looks like mornin’ in your eyes
But the clocks held 9:15 for hours
Sunrise, sunrise
Couldn’t tempt us if it tried
‘Cause the afternoon’s already come and gone

And I said hoo…
To you

Surprise, surprise
Couldn’t find it in your eyes
But I’m sure it’s written all over my face
Surprise, surprise
Never something I could hide
When I see we made it through another day

And I said hoo…
To you

Now good night
Throw its cover down
On me again
Ooh and if I’m right
It’s the only way
To bring me back

Hoo…
To you
Hoo…

Sunrise‘ ~Norah Jones~

I’m a morning person by nature, so I’ve seen many sunrises in my life. Although it’s a little more difficult to be up before the sun this time of year in my part of the world. The longest day of the year has come and gone and it’s always a shock to know that the hours of sunlight will start getting shorter and we slowly march towards winter, again. But, I don’t want to think about that this morning. It’s cloudy, but the sun’s been up for about 20 minutes and it’s looking like it’s going to be another hot one. We’re in the midst of a hot and dry spell here, and no matter what anyone says….yes….it’s a dry heat…….but it’s just plain old hot! I do appreciate not being in a humid part of the country, it does make it worse, but when the sun burns down……feeling like it’s scorching everything it touches, I just want to be inside where it’s a little bit cool and dark. But right now…..the suns behind a cloud and it’s still behind the trees, not forcing me to close the blinds, so I look out and see another day ahead, full of possibilities! What’s not to be happy about…..I’m not pushing up daisies, I have a hot cup of coffee in front of me, I’m loved, and I live in one of the best countries in the world…..yup……life is good!

It’s early morning in this shot, and I’ve had a hot cup of coffee brought to me and as I look out on the vista before me I think of all the good things in my life. Liz does look cute in the morning….in a cute little nightie and tousled hair! The ‘Eloen Nightie’ in ‘buttercup’ is from [QE] Designs and available now at the Midsummer Enchantment event. The set includes the nightie and panties and has a dreamy look that’s both sexy and innocent at the same time. It’s fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and is HUD controlled with 3 nightie and 2 pantie options. The Midsummer Enchantment event runs until July 9.

The ‘M116’ hair is from .:CHEVEUX:..

My little tattoo is ‘Enigma’ from Queen oF Ink.

As usual, my skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’ve combined a pose from the ‘Fashion 01’ set of poses from C O R P U S with the attachable coffee cup in the ‘Santiago’ set of poses from Ana Poses, to create this look!

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.

I’m at Cherishville at Mysteria Cove for this shot.

Everlong

Hello
I’ve waited here for you
Everlong
Tonight
I throw myself into
And out of the red
Out of her head she sang

Come down
And waste away with me
Down with me
Slow how
You wanted it to be
I’m over my head
Out of her head she sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang

Breathe out
So I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now
I know you’ve always been
Out of your head
Out of my head I sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang

[Whisper:]
So, Dad would take the Sundays off.
And that’s the only time he could ever get any rest.
And so, because we were loud on Sundays, he’d make us hold his construction boots over our head, ’til we’d sleep.
And they were really heavy boots and I used to say, “Dad, come on, please.”
And like start crying, ’cause they’re too heavy.

And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when

This is the pose ‘Break’ from Shadow’s Poses and what I really love about it is it’s gentle relaxed look which really translates well in photographs. I’m taking some quiet time for myself in bed, just concentrating on being calm and thinking nice thoughts. There are so many things that can make a picture speak and it all starts with a pose, all the little details do matter, but it all starts here!

I’m wearing part of the ‘Diana’ set of lingerie in noir from /erratic/. This is the ‘Cheeky Thong and Tube Bra’. I love the whole set though, there’s 3 thong versions, 2 bras, wrist cuffs, suspenders, and stocking in 3 colours and it’s a sight to behold when worn as a set. The lace and pearls are shear perfection together!

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As 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.

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.

I’m at the gorgeous Oboeru sim for this shot.
