Tied Down

Tied Down

These days the lovers trade their places
Dancing all around each other’s chairs
I can see the numbness on their faces
Jealousy fills up their hearts in pairs
So please could I be selfish with your body?
‘Cause I don’t think I could share you with nobody

Oh when I have you
I’m gonna brand you with my lips
And all of the world will know that you’re mine now
We’ll never lose faith
‘Cause we’ll never forget this taste
My love has the power to keep the tide down

Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh ill get you tied down, tied down

Ohh, late at night you’ll hear the screaming echo
But we all pretend we never heard the cries in the daytime
Don’t you worry my touch won’t leave you hollow
I’m never going to let you change your mind

Oh, when I have you
I’m gonna brand you with my lips
And all of the world will know that you’re mine now
We’ll never lose faith
‘Cause we’ll never forget this taste
My love has the power to keep your tied down

Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied, ohh
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down

Don’t be afraid to leave your mark
Give me the scars to remind me
Just how good you are (how good you are)
And if your faith turns into to dark
Pull me closer and know
That it’s enough to keep you tied down

Tied Down‘ ~Jaymes Young~

Take two…….I just deleted a whole paragraph of text while struggling to write something. Some days are so easy…and other days the only words I can put together is,’ hey, how are ya?’. Today is obviously the latter! So I’ll keep it short and simple today……..hey….how are ya? 😀

I want to show you the wonderful artwork of Sandowl from Wild Roots! Her tattoos are always highly detailed and eye catching. This is the ‘Love is Kind’ tattoo and along with the incredible message, it’s perfectly placed to show perfectly to show it to the best effect! The full saying on it is, ‘Love is patient, love is kind’ and it’s words to live by, because there’s just not enough love in this world. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, Omega, and classic avatars so no one’s left out!

The ‘Widowmaker’ lingerie set is from [Cynful] Clothing & Co. and it’s available at Collabor88 for a few more days, then it’ll be at the mainstore. The set is compatible with the SLink(Hourglass), Belleza(Freya/Isis), and Maitreya mesh bodies and includes sheer and solid versions.

The ‘G1224’ hair from tram is so feminine with lots of wisps.

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.

This pose is from set 91 from Overlow Poses.

Ship Of Fools

Ship of Fools

On waves of love my heart is breaking
And stranger still my self control I can’t rely on anymore
New tides surprise – my world it’s changing
Within this frame an ocean swells – behind this smile I know it well

Beneath a lover’s moon I’m waiting
I am the pilot of the storm – adrift in pleasure I may drown
I built this ship – it is my making
And furthermore my self control I can’t rely on anymore
I know why – I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around – back to my loving ground

Who claims that no man is an island
While I land up in jeopardy – more distant from you by degrees
I walk this shore in isolation
And at my feet eternity draws ever sweeter plans for me
I know why – I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around – back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no – ship of fools —

Ship Of Fools‘ ~Robert Plant~

I don’t have much to say today, I’m sorry to say. I suppose I could make up a story about why I’m laying on a piano with a skull, but I don’t have it in me today! I suppose I could give you a weather report, but I ask myself, ‘does anyone even give a f***?’! I could say that I saw Robert Plant way back in the day for his ‘Now and Zen’ tour, but again I’d ask that same question. And honestly, I don’t think anyone does….heck……I know I don’t! 😀

The October round of the Pose Fair is open for the entire month and Le Poppycock has the ‘Necromantic’ gacha set exclusive for it. The set contains 14 bento poses, with props including skulls, skeletons, butterflies, and violins. Perfect for October spookiness. I’m using the ‘Possession’ pose with skull and butterfly prop, I have to admit there’s something weird about laying naked on a piano with a skull, but I’ve never been one to shy away from weird! 😀 There’s also a group gift available for Pose Fair group members and like I said, the Pose Fair runs until October 31.

The enchanting ‘H0928’ hair is from tram and available now at Collabor88. There’s 2 versions included, and as always, I got HUD A.

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

I’m laying on the ‘Distressed Grand Piano, dark’ from Nutmeg. And the ‘Sepia Peonies’ are from NOMAD.

Your Bones

Your Bones

In the spring we made a boat
Out of feathers, out of bones.
We set fire to our homes,
Walking barefoot in the snow.

Distant rhythm of the drum
As we drifted towards the storm.
Baby lion lost his teeth,
Now they’re swimming in the sea.

Troubled spirits on my chest
Where they laid to rest.
The birds all left, my tall friend,
As your body hit the sand.

Million stars up in the sky
Formed a tiger’s eye
That looked down on my face,
Out of time and out of place.

So hold on.
Hold on to what we are.
Hold on to your heart.

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la

Awakened by the sound
Of a screaming owl.
Chasing leaves in the wind,
Going where we’ve never been.

Said goodbye to you, my friend,
As the fire spread.
All that’s left are your bones
That will soon sink like stones.

So hold on.
Hold on to what we are.
Hold on to your heart.

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la

So hold on.
Hold on to your heart.

Your Bones‘ ~Of Monsters and Men~

This song and video calls to my Viking roots, my untamed heart and the fire burning within me, well….that’s not really what my Viking roots are like. I’m more likely to surround myself in perfect hygge, and feel the peace, love, and connection flow around, and through, me. I don’t think I’m the warrior Viking, I’m the more peaceful Viking that calls in sick on the pillaging and plundering days, and generally prefers peace over anything else. In all honesty, I’m only half Danish…..the other half is English…..what a combination, eh? I’m sure my ancestors on both sides were warriors, and probably fought against each other, and we know how that went! 😀 Have a great Monday everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Canadians.

There’s no way anyone can deny it’s fall…….does it feel like summer anywhere now? Here’s is breezy with a little bit of snow coming down, so I can’t even really say it feels like fall. It’s more of an early winter feel……and there’s a very fine line between late fall and early winter. What I’m getting at is that since it’s fall, it’s time to bring out all the warm, cozy and fall related things. I’ve gone deep into my inventory to find the ‘Autumn Bento Rings from Elle Boutique(formerly Slipper Originals). They have soft fall tones on four rings with sets included for both hands. They’re HUD driven with 6 metals to choose from and each ring has an on/off toggle. They fit the SLink and Maitreya bento hands and add a nice simple touch to a fall outfit. Here’s a closer look at them…

The ‘KELLU BOMBER JACKET’ is from [Vale Koer]. It’s an older release but I have to admit this is the first time I’ve worn it. It’s really nice…….perfect when the weather calls for a jacket, but it’s not too cold for a bare midriff.

The ‘H0906’ hair is from tram!

The ‘Jolene Jeans’ are from Blueberry, and there’s flare and skinny leg included in the set.

‘The Countess’ eye glasses are from Earthstones.

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.

This a pose from the ‘Pretty’ set of poses from DS’ELLES. It’s available until the end of the month at the Pose Fair.

I made a visit to Voodoo in My Blood for this shot. It’s a great sim with lots of scenes perfect for photography.

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.

Desperado

Desperado

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
You been out ridin’ fences for so long now
Oh, you’re a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin’ you
Can hurt you somehow

Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She’ll beat you if she’s able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can’t get

Desperado, oh, you ain’t gettin’ no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they’re drivin’ you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that’s just some people talkin’
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Don’t your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won’t snow and the sun won’t shine
It’s hard to tell the night time from the day
You’re losin’ all your highs and lows
Ain’t it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin’, but there’s a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you (let somebody love you)
You better let somebody love you before it’s too late

Desperado‘ ~The Eagles~

So, I don’t have a story to go along with this song, other than to say, I like it! I don’t have a story to go along with this picture either, so I guess the song and the picture do have something in common! This is blog post #997, and I’m drawing a blank on something to say. I’ve been here before, I’ve admitted to everyone that I have nothing to say and then carry on with the blog post, but today it just doesn’t feel right to do that. Since I started this blog, 4 years ago today, I’ve tried to be entertaining or though provoking, and there are times that I’ve been neither. But one thing I can say is, I’ve always written honestly and openly about myself. I’m not sure if I have anything worth hearing, I’ve never cared about that, but what I have discovered is that through these last 4 years, I’ve learned things about myself that maybe I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t written about it here. I think about my years on this earth and what I’ve experienced and how it’s shaped me and I can see things more clearly. So, even if no one looks at my pictures or reads my posts, that’s okay……it’s been an incredible 4 years! I still love doing this, each day I log in-world looking forward to working on something blog related and I’m proud of where I’ve come from, I keep striving to be better and I’m still learning. So I look forward to many more years doing this, and if I think I have nothing to say now……..I can’t imagine how blank my mind will be in another 4 years. I started out with one follower on flickr, and I’ve just hit the 4K mark, and I thank each and every one of you, for the faves, comments, and views……just one thing, though…….please…someone….help me out now and then by suggesting a topic for me to talk about……input people…..I need input! 😛

Ok…….I’m wearing the ‘Jewel Roses’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio and this is simply stunning! I’ve never worn many coloured tattoos, but the tones of this one are all my favourites, somewhat muted and full of autumn tones. It’s available now at the current round of Cosmopolitan, which has another week to go. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven and it comes in 4 ink tones, this is 75%.

The ‘H0906’ hair is from tram and available right now at the Hair Fair 2018. The crowds should have eased by now to make it easier to grab those styles you need, and I have to admit that tram was one of my first stops when I got there. For more info including slurls, you can check out this link.

You can just see a bit of the ‘Hera’ dress from *Just BECAUSE*, it’s a little mini dress that covers the neccessities, and not much more!

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

I’m at the beautiful Little Havana for this picture.
