Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams

I’m going to close my eyes for just a few minutes, give my mind a rest and maybe drift off to where anything is possible! I take a deep breath and slowly exhale, trying to rid my body and mind of stress. I make a mental note to relax each part of me and to feel the tension flow out of my body. OK….this is good, I’m feeling calm and peaceful. I slow my breathing and let myself go, wanting just a short nap to refresh and regroup for the day. I’m falling, the fresh breeze and sunshine on my skin is the only thing I know. As I drift off a thought occurs to me, I didn’t pay my phone bill, and it’s due! I should go do that! No, it’s OK….it can wait another half hour! But if I don’t do it right away I might forget to do it later! I won’t forget, just relax and go back to drifting off to sleep. I breath in then exhale slowly shifting into a more comfortable position, nope….now this isn’t going to work! My eyes are open wide and I know the moment has passed that I could fall asleep and get a nap! Why do my attempts at naps always seem to end this way? I’m usually up between 4 and 5 AM, so a nap would be nice, but I just can’t control my thoughts for longer than a few minutes! OK…I may as well get up and get going, again! And so it goes, another nap ended before it even began!

The June round of The Liaison Collaborative is on and Le Poppycock has released the ‘Stay Cool’ pose prop gacha set! It’s right full of fun in the sun summer activities, with props including this mat and magazine, a tube to enjoy water activities and a fan for some cool air on a hot day! They’re all fun and unique with great poses! The Liaison Collaborative runs until June 30.

I’m wearing the ‘Del Sol Bikini Collection’ from !APHORISM! here! It’s the blue satin version and it’s compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies.

The ‘Hani’ hair from [monso] is so cute. This is from the blacks pack and it’s unrigged for easy fitting!

The rest of me is the Alex mesh head from Logo with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins(soon to be ‘Avada’). I’m also wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the flat feet from SLink.

I’m at my home in ‘Winters Wind‘(which has a couple vacancies right now) and I’m laying on ‘The Jetty’ by IMMERSIV.

We Are All Merely Stardust!

We Are All Merely Stardust!

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

~Mary Elizabeth Frye~

If I let go of the belief that we are just flesh that can live and die, and believe that we are much more than that, only then does losing a close friend seem easier! Everyone’s body will die, but who we really are will live on, at least I really hope so! I envision the loved ones we’ve all lost are somewhere that we humans cannot even imagine! I dream of a day that I’m not limited by the world in which I live and this human shell the real ‘me’ is trapped in, to have my spirit free and to be nothing and everything…..at the same time!

I am so taken with the ‘Animal Family’ pose/prop gacha set released by Le Poppycock! The props blend perfectly with natural and expressive poses. I’ve chosen the Wonderment pose/prop for this blog post. It was the stardust that sealed the deal!! Everyone should have a little handful of stardust to remind them of the larger meaning of life! And to enjoy the wonderment of it while riding a reindeer….how much better can it get? All props in the set are worn so you don’t need rezz rights to use them! This gacha set is available now at the December round of The Liaison Collaborative.

Twisted Krissmus is on and Anachron has this incredible Winter Sweater! I believe there is no limit on the amount of sweaters a person can wear this time of year! The sweater comes in men’s and women’s, in five colours, and is transfer for gifting! They come in five standard sizes, but I’m wearing it with the Maitreya, Lara mesh body, easily!

I’m wearing one of the nine colours in the Charade Shadow set from Veechi! This is now available at a fundraiser that’s being held to help support Perky Button, who has lost her house to fire! As you learned in one of my previous posts, I know exactly how it is to live through this. So please, help Perky out by purchasing a few things by some really good designers! There’s something there everyone!

Also at the fundraiser is the Nymph-Leather Lace Up Boots in brown leather from Livalle. You can’t see a good clear shot in this post, but I will be wearing them again!

I’ve stolen the Jeweled Tights from a marvelous outfit by zanze! The outfit includes a sweater dress and these tights and it’s at the December round of Designer Showcase.

I made an early stop in at the new round of Hair-O-Logy and I grabbed the NO.CUT hair by NO.MATCH! The toque(it’s a toque to me…not a beanie! LOL) is HUD driven with eight options.

As always, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Irina skin in pale tone from itGirls, along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the elegant1 mesh hands from SLink.

I just love It All Starts With a Smile! It’s in the Heavenly Groove sim and there’s all kinds of great little areas to sit and contemplate life! Or ride your reindeer! 🙂

You Might Be an Introvert……..

You Might Be an Introvert........

……..when there’s a knock on the door and you freeze and immediately decide not to answer it!

…….because most people think you’re sickly since you use the “I’m not feeling well” excuse too much to avoid going out.

…….when having two dogs is a little too much company sometimes.

…….if grocery shopping becomes a game of cat and mouse when trying to avoid someone you know.

…….if you’re more lonely among people than you are being alone!

Yup, I’m an introvert…and proud of it , man! 🙂

I’ve got a pretty pretty dress to show you today! The Serendipity Dress from FLIPPANT is a cool summery dress that works well for any occasion! It’s all silk with embroidered flowers on the skirt and cap sleeves and the high waist accentuates all the curves a girl should have. It’s HUD driven with ten colours(five light and five dark) and comes in five standard sizes! Give the demo a try if worn on a mesh body!

I’m giving you a really close look at my make up..and for good reason!! I’m wearing one of the nine options from the gorgeous Totemic Eyeshadow from Veechi. It’s available at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative, which runs until July 30 and is compatible with classic avatars, Catwa, Genesis Labs, Lelutka, Logo mesh heads and Omega compatible heads. Also from Veechi, is the Freckles 01 pack. They’re compatible with classic avatars, Genesis Labs mesh heads, and Omega compatible mesh heads! The Freckles are available at the current round of anyBODY, which runs until July 31.It all makes for a super summer look!

The ASTER Heels from GLAMISTRY are the perfect pair of shoes to go with a light summer dress! If you haven’t heard…..GLAMISTRY has reduced all shoe prices to a super affordable price for single colours and the fatpack!!! Stop in…it’ll be worth your while!

If you zoom in close you’ll see a gorgeous nail applier from the Hot Fudge Sauce applier pack from Hello Dave! Just the other day I was pondering the need for brown nail polishes….and lo and behold…here’s the perfect set!!

The Viola hair in Brunette tone is one of the new releases from EMO-tions available at Hair Fair 2016! You have until July 31 to get to the always incredible Hair Fair! A percentage of all purchases goes towards Wigs for Kids!!

My base components are the Nelly mesh head by Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

I made a visit to Garlic Breath at Melee Island for these shots!

A Losing Battle

A Losing Battle

I mentioned awhile back that a close family friend has been diagnosed with lung cancer! He has started chemo and he has improved a bit, but the doctors say that best case scenario is he’ll have maybe a year! So, by saying a year it makes it seem like he has lots of time to do all the things on his bucket list and to live all he can in that last year. If it were TV that’s what would happen! He’d go skydiving, or take an African safari, maybe have a hotdog and beer at a Blue Jays game! But, unlike TV or movies, the reality is that the last year will be spent doing his treatments, being sick for two weeks after, and just when he starts feeling better again, he’ll get another round of chemo! The last months, or weeks, of a cancer patients life isn’t spent being footloose and fancy free, it’s spending lots of time at the Cancer Clinic for treatment and then trying to deal with the sickness that the treatments have caused! All the while, trying to maintain some form of optimism in the face of sure death! We can all think about what we’d do if we knew we only had so much longer to live, but with all the cancers and diseases in this world, our last days may not be as rosy as a movie or TV show! How’s that for a Monday morning downer!! But, let’s enjoy this moment…..breath in the fresh air, and make a point to enjoy each second as it passes! We all get a finite number of seconds to enjoy!

I’ll move on to happier things! Like, how bout, all the great things Second Life has to offer! All the great designers who put so much effort into their creations, and who mostly do it just for the love of creating! I’ll begin with the epic gacha set of pose props from Le Poppycock! And I mean ~EPIC~!! This is the most extensive set I think I’ve ever seen! It’s a set called Bae Watch and it’s available at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative The set includes all kinds of life saving paraphernalia and there’s action poses, sexy poses, and relaxed poses that completely set the mood for whatever creation you’re working on! Olivia, of Le Poppycock, has outdone herself this time around! The Liaison Collaborative runs until June 30!

I love the Bette Swimsuit from Stories&Co. by Flowey! It’s a little bit retro and a whole bunch sexy! It comes in ten great colours and prints and is really different from most swimsuits around and is available at Summerfest ’16 until July 10!

The HIKARI hair in classy brown is from Argrace! I think this is the most used wet hair in Second Life!! It always looks great, and on pretty much everyone!

My basic body components are the Nelly mesh head, in cream tone from Genesis Labs, the Maitreya Lara body and the casual hands and flat feet from SLink!
