Play Me

Play Me

She was morning, and I was night time
I one day woke up
To find her lying beside my bed
I softly said “Come take me”
For I’ve been lonely in need of someone
As though I’d done someone wrong somewhere
But I don’t know where, I don’t know where
Come lately

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

Song she sang to me
Song she brang to me
Words that rang in me,
Rhyme that sprang from me
Warmed the night, and what was right
Became me

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

[Instrumental]

And so it was that I came to travel
Upon a road that was thorned and narrow
Another place, another grace
Would save me

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me
You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me……

Play Me‘ ~Neil Diamond~

It’s been a really quiet Saturday, so far…..and I don’t expect it’s going to change. I’m going to keep it simple in order to not overtax my brain, so it’s just a song for you today! And of course a photograph…..of me…….again. I hope you’re all having a great weekend!

I’m using one of the poses from the ‘Bodyache’ sets of poses from Le Poppycock here. There’s 2 sets with 7 poses in each set and they’re all a nice variety of standing, sitting and laying………and all perfectly sexy! The ‘Bodyache’ sets of poses are available now at The Chapter Four.

I’m wearing the sexy ‘Anyway Bodysuit’, in black, from Asteria. It comes with both a solid and a lace version here with the option to wear the belt or not. The metals are HUD driven with 4 options each for the belt and the neck.

The ‘Bloom’ hair is from TRUTH Hair.

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 sitting on the ‘Distressed Piano’ from Nutmeg and the sheet music is also from them, and both are available now at Shiny Shabby.

The ‘Sepia Peonies’ are from Nomad.

I visited the ‘Cafe des Arts’ at Summers Wind for this picture. Imagin@rium Art has an exposition by Giancarlo Perini, from RL to SL, and it’s outside, plus there are some nice pieces inside, which is where I am here.

Heaven Is A Place On Earth

Heaven is a Place on Earth

Ooh, baby, do you know what that’s worth?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We’ll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh heaven is a place on earth

When the night falls down
I wait for you
And you come around
And the world’s alive
With the sound of kids
On the street outside

When you walk into the room
You pull me close and we start to move
And we’re spinning with the stars above
And you lift me up in a wave of love…

Ooh, baby, do you know what that’s worth?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We’ll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh heaven is a place on earth

When I feel alone
I reach for you
And you bring me home
When I’m lost at sea
I hear your voice
And it carries me

In this world we’re just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby I was afraid before
But I’m not afraid anymore

Ooh, baby, do you know what that’s worth?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We’ll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh heaven is a place on earth

In this world we’re just beginning
To understand the miracle of living
Baby I was afraid before
But I’m not afraid anymore

Ooh, baby, do you know what that’s worth?
Ooh heaven is a place on earth
They say in heaven love comes first
We’ll make heaven a place on earth
Ooh heaven is a place on earth

Heaven Is A Place On Earth‘ ~Belinda Carlisle~

I don’t want to wait until I die to see heaven, if one is to believe in it, of course. Why can’t heaven be here on earth, it’s all a state of mind, and it’s there if you choose to see it. There’s parts of my life that I know heaven was nowhere to be found, heck we all have those times. But, when things are good……well….when things are really good, I like to acknowledge that the good things in life are heaven on earth. And as it always is for me, it’s the simple things, I don’t think a certain car is heaven on earth, or being in Mexico for a winter vacation is heavenly. Those things are probably nice if that’s what you want, but for me heaven is loving and being loved, nature and the wonders of this world, living in a great country that allows me to live the life I choose, and having my family close. I know those aren’t things that some people would call heavenly, but I’ve never been one to put that much value on material things. I may not have everything, but I have all I need, and that’s heaven on earth, right there.

Le Poppycock is in the September round of The Chapter Four with the ‘Bodyache A & B’ sets of poses, of which I’m using one here. Each pack has 7 poses of various sits, stands, and lays with flat and high feet options when needed, and there’s now a few bento add on poses for the hands. Which will come in handy because you’ll be able to add them to other poses, when needed. I’m using the ‘Seduce & Destroy’ pose with a bento hand pose, and along with the poses themselves, there’s pose balls containing the poses, included.

I’m wearing the bra and panties from the ‘Roseanne Lingerie’ set from Big Beautiful Doll. The set also includes garter and stockings in 3 colours.

One of my all time favourite hair is the ‘G1204’ 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 sitting on the ‘Distressed Grand Piano, dark’ from Nutmeg and available at the current round of Shiny Shabby.

The Creative Process

The Creative Process

1.) This is awesome.
2.) This is tricky.
3.) This is sh*t.
4.) I am sh*t.
5.) This might be OK.
6.) This is awesome.

I can completely relate to this, but I have to admit that I rarely get to step 6. I go through all the other steps, but when I’m finally done, I rarely think it’s awesome. Oh, there are times that I’m particularly happy with how something turned out, be it a photograph or a blog post, but for it to be ‘awesome’…no…not often. I’m probably my own harshest critic. Even after I consider something complete, I still look to find flaws with it, which can be annoying since I know for a fact that I will never consider anything I do ‘perfect’. But, luckily life isn’t perfect, we live in an imperfect world, so anyone(me) that strives for perfection is never going to get there. I should be happy with doing the best that I can, not comparing myself to anyone else and not looking so hard to find mistakes. When it comes right down to it, what does any of it matter? What I do, whether good or bad, doesn’t say anything about me as a person, it just says I did the best I could with what I had, at that time.

The Hipster Fair starts tomorrow and this is an exciting event. Elle Boutique(formerly Slipper Originals) is there with a new and exclusive release, the ‘Daisy Toe Rings’. They consist of 3 rings per foot with a casual design that shows off a fancy pedicure so nicely. They’re fitted for the high and flat feet of both Maitreya and SLink and the HUD is filled with 12 colours for the flower center and petals and fireflies along with 7 metals, with all being materials enabled for added shine. I’m wearing the ‘Daisy Toe Rings’ on the SLink flat feet here. The Hipster Fair runs until March 3.

This pose is another great one from the ‘Heartache’ pose sets from Le Poppycock. There’s 2 sets to choose from with each set containing 6 poses with rose props(not used here). They can be found at the current round of The Chapter Four.

I’m wearing one of the options from the ‘B&W, shiny’ mani/pedi set of appliers from alme..

The jeans I’m wearing are from an early round of Luxe Box from Blueberry.

My hair, although you can only see the top of it, is ‘G1224’ from tram.

The rest of 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 sitting on the old truck beside the gas station at Mother Road. I know there’s nothing to see in this shot, but it’s one of my favourite spots to hang out.

Treaty

Treaty

I’ve seen you change the water into wine
I’ve seen you change it back to water, too
I sit at your table every night
I try but I just don’t get high with you
I wish there was a treaty we could sign
I do not care who takes this bloody hill
I’m angry and I’m tired all the time
I wish there was a treaty, I wish there was a treaty
Between your love and mine

Ah, they’re dancing in the street — it’s Jubilee
We sold ourselves for love but now we’re free
I’m so sorry for that ghost I made you be
Only one of us was real and that was me

I haven’t said a word since you been gone
That any liar couldn’t say as well
I just can’t believe the static coming on
You were my ground, my safe and sound
You were my aerial

Ah, the fields are crying out — it’s Jubilee
We sold ourselves for love but now we’re free
I’m so sorry for that ghost I made you be
Only one of us was real and that was me

I heard the snake was baffled by his sin
He shed his scales to find the snake within
But born again is born without a skin
The poison enters into everything

And I wish there was a treaty we could sign
I do not care who takes this bloody hill
I’m angry and I’m tired all the time
I wish there was a treaty, I wish there was a treaty
Between your love and mine

Treaty ~Leonard Cohen~

Keeping it simple today! The feature of this shot is the pose. It’s called ‘Sinking Heart’ and it’s from ‘Heartache B’ set of poses from Le Poppycock. There’s two pose prop sets to grab and each have 6 distinctly different, but all sad poses with rose props. I love poses that show deep emotion and all of them in these two sets are incredible. They’re available now at The Chapter Four.

I’m wearing the ‘Kate Cover-up’ from /erratic/. Each colour comes with a solid and a shear version. I just went for the fatpack so I didn’t have to make a decision.

The ‘Corinne’ hair is from {Limerence}.

The little tattoo on my chest is called ‘Enigma’ and it’s from Queen of Ink.

I’m sitting on the ‘Stockholm’ bed from ~~BAZAR~.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The tissue box in the foreground is from the ‘Break Up Survival Kit’ from Commoner.

Gaze Long Into the Abyss

Gaze Long Into the Abyss

I’ve just spent 45 minutes trying to make sense of Friedrich Nietzsche and I can now report that that is not enough time! I was going to write something meaningful and profound, but while doing some research on the ‘staring into the abyss’ quote, I realized that there’s no way I can come close to saying anything that wouldn’t make me look like a complete idiot. I do have an open mind, and am will to try form thoughts about how I interpret things, but this is ‘waaaay out there for me’! It’s not that I don’t get the very basic meaning……but to actually write about it, is a whole other thing. You know the saying, ‘it’s better stay silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt’? Yea…that was meant for me….and I know when to keep quiet!

I’m always drawn to poses of sadness, so the newest set of poses and props from Le Poppycock are perfect for me! The ‘Heartache A & B’ pose sets are all gut wrenching in their emotion and you’ll probably be seeing each and every one of them here, eventually! This one is called ‘Secret Sorrow’ and includes the rose with falling petals. This set is perfect for anyone that feels alone during this time of year. With everyone throwing their love and romance at you, when all you want to do is put on your jammies and watch a good movie while eating a pint of ice cream straight from the container! The ‘Heartache’ sets contain six poses each, with rose props and are available now at The Chapter Four.

I’m wearing the newest release from DURA Hair here. It’s the ‘Boys & Girls 82’ and available now at The Men’s Department.

The ‘Betina Tank Top’ is from Addams.

I made it over to the flash sale at Blueberry last week and grabbed the ‘Kimi Skirt’, among other things.

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

I found the incredible Neverfar sim. Joining the group does give rez rights, but worth every penny.
