What’d He Just Say?

What'd He Just Say?

Unsealed on a porch a letter sat.
Then you said, “I wanna leave it again.”
Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand.
And on the sand I wanna leave it again. Yeah.
On a weekend I wanna wish it all away, yeah.
And they called and I said that “I want what I said” and then I call out again.
And the reason oughta’ leave her calm, I know.
I said “I know what I was the boxer or the bag.”

Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? Yeah, but they don’t wave.
I see them round the front way. Yeah.
And I know, and I know I don’t want to stay.
Make me cry…

I see… Oh I don’t know why there’s something else.
I wanna drum it all away…
Oh, I said, “I don’t, I don’t know whether I was the boxer or the bag.”

Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? Yeah, but they don’t wave.
But I see them round the front way. Yeah.
And I know, and I know. I don’t wanna stay at all.
I don’t wanna stay. Yeah.
I don’t wanna stay. [x2]
I don’t… Don’t wanna, oh… Yeah. Ooh… Ohh…

Yellow Ledbetter‘ ~Pearl Jam~

When it comes to vague lyrics, this song ranks right up there, but I love it! Of course you’d already guessed that, with my not so private crush on EV. I thought I needed a song with lyrics that were sending mixed messages because I went through the gamut of emotions today and the idea I had started with was based on an emotion that had dissipated by the time I managed to get at taking the picture. So, I dressed for a picture with me displaying a little bit of angry indifference, but then it morphed into a mellow form of IDGAF. Then just when I was trying poses and settings I decided that just sitting quietly with my resting b*tch face was the perfect look for me today. Yes, I must confess, I do have one of those, and get asked often, ‘What’s wrong?’, ‘Who’re you mad at?’ and other variations that asks why I look the way I do. My answer now, not the answer of the past, is ‘it’s just mah face!’. It’s the way I am! When I’m in my own thoughts, or not thinking anything at all(rarely) I just sort of look a little ‘ticked off’! I may have felt every emotion known to man today, but they went by so fast I couldn’t nail down just one…..so here I am.

I’m wearing the ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ from [Vale Koer] here, which is my all time favourite sexy piece of clothing, I could have done a shameless butt shot, but the ‘KALISKA Boots’ from **UTOPIA Designs** were pinching my pinky toes, so no butt shot today folks! 😀

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

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.

The pose is from the ‘Anastasia’ set of poses from RK Poses.

I’m sitting on ‘Kate’s Vintage Collection’ of chairs from Nutmeg.

Shine

Shine

Give me a word – give me a sign
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)
Lay me on the ground and fly me in the sky
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)

Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down

Love is in the water – love is in the air
Show me where to look – tell me will love be there? (Will love be there?)
Teach me how to speak – teach me how to share
Teach me where to go – tell me will love be there? (Will love be there?)

Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down

Give me a word – give me a sign
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)
Lay me on the ground and fly me in the sky
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)

Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down

I’m gonna let it shine – I’m gonna let it shine
Heaven, let your light shine on me
Oh, yeah
Heaven, let your light shine on me

Shine‘ ~Collective Soul~

I think it’s about time I share a more hopeful and positive song, because nothing is so terrible that one can be devoid of all hope. Really, it’s still cold outside and it’s snowing a little bit, but who cares! I’m officially behind in my spring work because of this weather, but you know what, I don’t care! My heart remains heavy from the weekend events with so many lives lost, but the world continues to turn and the sun will set tonight and rise again tomorrow, because life does go on. When I say that there’s hope and that life is precious, I’m saying it from a state of mind that knows this, deep down inside. It’s a healthy mental state that can accept things that happen in life and keep going, and although I have many ups and downs sometimes all in one day, I’m firmly and completely confident in the thought that life is always worth living, no matter what! I’ve lost loved ones in the past and thought I’d never survive, but I did….I will lose loved ones in the future and I will survive that too, the only thing to do is to accept it and never waste a second of it. At one time in my life I couldn’t bare to take another breath and I didn’t want to face another second, so I know what it’s like to be at the bottom with no hope. But there is hope, one just needs to reach out in any way possible to get help. I got the help I needed….it didn’t make me weak or less of a person, it just meant I couldn’t do it alone. So today I breathe deeply, knowing all I’ve got is right now, and that’s OK!

It’s the 2nd anniversary round of the Bodyfy event, and Wild Roots is celebrating with 2 new releases, plus this gift! The ‘Smoke’ tattoo is a gorgeous unisex sleeve tattoo with a highly detailed and intricate design that replicates smooth smoke rising. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP mesh bodies plus anything that’s Omega compatible. There’s also tattoo layers for the classic avatars. It includes 3 ink tones too, this is the medium. The skin sacrifice will continue until April 24.

The ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ is from [Vale Koer].

The ‘Arwen’ hair is from MINA Hair.

I’m wearing the ‘Raine gen.2’ skin in tone 210 from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I know there’s no detail in texturing in a black and white photo, but I want to add that the gen 2 skins from Avada are incredible, with ‘Raine gen 2’ being available now at The Makeover Room.

This pose is one of the 8 poses in the ‘Behind’ set from .Ininiti..

I’m in front of the ‘Mid Century Bed’ from Dutchie. The house plant is from Dust Bunny.

‘I love the rain. I love how it softens the outlines of things. The world becomes softly blurred and I feel like I melt right into it.’

~Hanamoto Hagumi~

Like the true introvert that I am, I do love the rain. I love to hear it on the roof, lightly sprinkling down, making me feel warm and cozy indoors. The window panes have rivulets of rain running slowly down and I look through it, seeing the world in soft muted tones, knowing all of life outside is taking in it’s life force and being renewed. To walk in the rain brings a certain peacefulness to me, the air is fresh and clean and the rain brings a coolness to my skin. The trees and grass and sky all blend into each other with the slow movement of the rain falling and it’s easy to get lost in the rich colours made darker with the wetness. As I sit here looking out my east window and see fog, hoar frost, and snow I dream of a soft summer rain. But, you know I’m a practical girl also! For the dream is but a dream and reality is more likely, it’s a drought and it hasn’t rained in a month, or it’s been raining non stop through haying season and I curse it for causing problems! I always love the rain, and always will….but sometimes Mother Nature just doesn’t know that haying season is NOT the time to send the rain!

I want to thank RH for his endless patience while I struggled to get a shot I liked. It was one of those times that nothing seemed to feel right to me and after countless poses, angles, and windlights this is what I ended up with. RH didn’t participate in photographing this pose, I think he got tired of me changing poses and he gave up to watch some TV! Thanks again, RH.

The pose is ‘Whisper My Name’ from CKEY Poses. I like the intimacy and connection it shows without being overdone!

I’m wearing the ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ from [Vale Koer] here. It’s my go-to bodysuit, perfect for any shot of my backside!

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram.

Since this is in black and white it’s hard to get an idea of skin tone, 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.

Don’t Mention It!

Don't Mention It!

With over 800 blog posts behind me, finding a topic to talk about is getting a little bit more difficult. I’m sure no matter what I talk about, I’ve already covered the topic, but I’m trusting that no one will remember it. If I can’t remember writing about something then I’m sure no one else will remember reading it. Today I want to talk about what I won’t talk about, and no matter how hard it gets for me to find something to say, these topics will not be discussed.

You won’t hear me talk about guns, I refuse to get into this debate in a Second Life fashion blog. Do I have an opinion, well of course I do, but I’m just not going to get into it!

I don’t want to talk about politics! Whether I’m for or against any political party in any country will not be mentioned. I live in Canada and yes I have thoughts on our Prime Minister, but I don’t think you want to hear them. It’s really neither here nor there, because in this blog, names of leaders will not be mentioned. Unless it’s a Linden, I can’t promise I won’t talk about a Linden! Oh……btw……while at a Jack Slade show a few days ago I became a Simon Linden Stalker! If you happen to see Simon out and about, don’t touch his hat! 😀

Anyone want to debate religion? Nope….me neither! Whatever anyone believes is completely their choice and I support everyone’s right to freedom of religion.

I won’t get into the topic of humans being omnivores! If you choose to be a vegan, that’s fine…..if you eat meat…that’s ok too. There’s room for us all here, so I’m not going to try to convince anyone that I’m right about my choices.

If you’ve kept tabs on me throughout the past few years on my blog you already know some of my passions in life. I will talk about animal welfare, the human condition, the environment, stupid people, coffee, SL problems, dogs vs cats, farm life, and many other not-so-important topics. And if I can’t think of a topic that isn’t divisive, you’ll get a song or poem. I may not always be interesting, but hey, I’m only human!

So, with this picture today I’m showing you a new release from !NFINTIY!. The ‘Miles Dog Tag Necklace’ is a simple but stylish necklace for men, or women of course! The detailing on this necklace is so intricate, it’s really a gorgeous piece! It comes in gold(seen here), silver, and black and each version is HUD driven with 3 choices for the dog tag itself. I’m showing gold on gold here, has anyone ever noticed gold is my metal of choice? It’s said diamonds are a girls best friend, but not mine…..it’s gold, baby! It’s 100% original mesh and is unrigged with resize on touch for easy fitting. It’s available now at Men Only Monthly.

I’m keeping it simple here with the ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ from [Vale Koer]. It’s super sexy with the perfect fit, but don’t expect your butt to be fully covered! 🙂

The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram.

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.

This pose is one of the 10 in pack ’92’ from Overlow Poses.

If I Didn’t Have

If I Didn't Have

Every day I should be asking myself what life would be like if I didn’t have something that I take for granted. What if I didn’t have my freedom and independence? What if my health were to fail to the point where I can’t leave my home and need assistance with daily life? How would I cope with that? It’s one thing to not want to leave home, but it’s entirely different when you physically can’t My freedom is something I take for granted. What if I didn’t have my family? They are my rock, who I turn to when I need someone to make things seem better, and who I can laugh with in complete comfort to be who I am. I take them for granted sometimes, although as we all get older it’s in my mind more than ever, having a life without them. What would my life be like if I didn’t have the home I have. I’m fourth generation on the family farm, and although there’s been many hard times here over the years, it’s still where I find comfort. I can’t live in a city, I know that, so I’m so fortunate to be able to live here, with few worries. What if I didn’t have the past that I do? I know there’s no point in saying ‘what if’ in life, but there are times I wonder what would’ve happened if I’d made different decisions, would I be better or worse off? I don’t think about it much, except to say that I take for granted the life I’ve lived, to end up where I am today. Every part of my life has all brought me to this one moment in time, right now, and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m standing on Route 66 at Mother Road , home of the Mirage Motel 66, and I’m in deep thought. If you see me not paying attention like this at any time, please have mercy and not run over me! I’m wearing the fun and perky ‘Ace Sport Set’ in pink, from Dead Dollz. It’s excluvely for the Maitreya ‘Lara’ mesh body and fits perfectly!

I’ve added the ‘Urban Fitness Player’ and the ‘Usagi Trainers’ both from [Vale Koer].

The ‘SLife Fitness Band’ is from Anachron. I think it wants to call me lazy for not walking enough! 🙂

The tattoo is the ‘Queen Tattoo’ in black and at 50% opacity from Carol G Tattoo Wear.

This is the NO.SHELTER hair from NO.MATCH.

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

The pose is from the ‘Travelogue’ set from oOo Studio Poses.
