In Restless Dreams I Walked Alone

Hello, darkness, my old friend.
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping.

And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone.
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp.
I turned my collar to the cold and damp

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking.
People hearing without listening.

People writing songs that voices never share.
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.

“Fools,” said I, “You do not know:
Silence, like a cancer, grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you,”

But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.

And the sign said,
“The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.
And whispered in the sound of silence.”

Sound of Silence‘ ~Disturbed~

I’m sure everyone knows this song, Paul Simon wrote it and him and Garfunkel made it famous, but this isn’t your Grandmother’s version! It’s got a bit of meat to it, the video is haunting and his voice is almost angry. I love it when a well known song is changed so completely….when it’s in a good way, like this one is! 🙂

I hope you’ll understand if I’m a little short on words today! I’ve been gone all day and had way to much exposure to people, for this introvert! I need quiet and alone time, and maybe some chocolate! Everything is better with chocolate. Anyway, I’ll get on with why I’m here. A new round of Cosmopolitan Events is open and Carol G Tattoo has the ‘Buddha Tattoo’ for the women available! The detailing in this is so good, with the intricate circles, the flowers and on the back the likeness of the Buddha! It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, including anything Omega driven and the Catwa, Lelutka, and Vista bento heads, it comes in red or black and each with 4 ink tones. This is one spectacular tat! Cosmopolitan runs until May 5.

The ‘Daisy Top’ from *Just BECAUSE* is one of my favourite summertime tops! It’s super sexy with the zipper open a little bit to show off some cleavage. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and comes in tons of colours. Or…maybe just go for the fatpack for all kinds of options.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

You can just see a little bit of the ‘DWL Jeans’ from Blueberry.

The skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery. I’ve added one of the 9 options from the ‘Blossom Smoke Shadow’ set of eye shadows from Veechi.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Milan’ set by Ana Poses, which is available now at Shiny Shabby.

I’m in the atelier in the house at Isle of May here.

End of the Line

Well it’s all right, riding around in the breeze
Well it’s all right, if you live the life you please
Well it’s all right, doing the best you can
Well it’s all right, as long as you lend a hand

You can sit around and wait for the phone to ring (End of the Line)
Waiting for someone to tell you everything (End of the Line)
Sit around and wonder what tomorrow will bring (End of the Line)
Maybe a diamond ring

Well it’s all right, even if they say you’re wrong
Well it’s all right, sometimes you gotta be strong
Well it’s all right, As long as you got somewhere to lay
Well it’s all right, everyday is Judgment Day

Maybe somewhere down the road aways (End of the Line)
You’ll think of me, wonder where I am these days (End of the Line)
Maybe somewhere down the road when somebody plays (End of the Line)
Purple haze

Well it’s all right, even when push comes to shove
Well it’s all right, if you got someone to love
Well it’s all right, everything’ll work out fine
Well it’s all right, we’re going to the end of the line

Don’t have to be ashamed of the car I drive (End of the Line)
I’m just glad to be here, happy to be alive (End of the Line)
It don’t matter if you’re by my side (End of the Line)
I’m satisfied

Well it’s all right, even if you’re old and gray
Well it’s all right, you still got something to say
Well it’s all right, remember to live and let live
Well it’s all right, the best you can do is forgive

Well it’s all right, riding around in the breeze
Well it’s all right, if you live the life you please
Well it’s all right, even if the sun don’t shine
Well it’s all right, we’re going to the end of the line

No matter what’s going on in life, never give up!

I’m keeping it short this time around, since this picture represents some sad times for me, so I thought I’d share a happy song and send happy vibes out to everyone.

I’ve been crying here with the ‘Rough Night Shadow’ from Veechi. It has 6 options in the pack.

I’m wearing the ‘Allure Satin Robe’ from /erratic/. It’s HUD driven with open, closed, and detach options so you can take it off in stages.

The ‘MAYU’ hair is from Argrace. This is from the ‘blacks’ pack.

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 called ‘Cleanse’ and it’s from LYRIUM.

I’m up high on a little deck at Neverfar for this shot.

What a Long Strange Trip it's Been
Six Years! Yea…..I can’t believe it either! It’s my Rezz Day today and I can’t believe it’s 6 years ago today that I came into this world. It wasn’t easy, showing up in this world all system and noobish. No, not noobish….I was plain old 100% NOOB, as anyone newly rezzed into SL is! I had a white business suit on and carrying a bag of some sort. It didn’t take me long to remove a sleeve, without knowing how, since back then a top came with 6 pieces, all of which had to be worn then adjusted to fit. I ended up at some country bar where thankfully my sister came to my rescue and took me to her place! I had absolutely no clue what was going on, I just knew it was the coolest thing I’d ever seen! Since then I’ve had difficulty adjusting to the many changes that have occurred. I never wanted mesh hands or feet, even though there was nothing at all attractive about system feet or the invisiprims that could put shoes on them. I never wanted a mesh body and Oh Em Gee, I never want a mesh head!! So, go forward 6 years and here I am, all mesh all the time and thinking it’s unimaginable to be any other way! The options for living my Second Life are limitless and I still find it to be great fun. I’ve made some incredible friends and I’ve learned there is no limit to some peoples stupidity, but hey…that’s just the joys of humanity! I love this ever evolving world and hope to be here for many years to come, I may be getting older, but I think I look pretty good for my age!! 😀

Here’s my face…yes….this is what the other side of me looks like! And, I’m wearing the newest release from !NFINITY here! The ‘Luca Choker’ is one of those accessories that stays on all the time, no matter what. I think most of us have one piece of jewelry that makes us feel naked when it’s taken off and this choker would be that for me in real life! It’s a nice simple accent that just adds to an outfit, even just jeans and a shirt. It’s unisex, HUD driven with 4 metals and 4 leather textures, it’s resize on touch and unrigged, plus it’s 100% original mesh!You can get it at the current round of Men Only Monthly, which runs until February 15.

The ‘Junghwa’ hair from [monso] is available at the current round of SaNaRaE. The pretty updo with soft face framing tendrils is so feminine!

The ‘Relaxed Blouse’ is one of my favourites from Tres Blah. It’s HUD driven with lots of bra textures, if you choose to wear it at all!

This is a really good look at the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. Note the full lips, perfectly groomed brows, and pert little nose, that come together to make me so pretty! Yea….I’m not full of myself at all!! lol

I’m using one of the 9 options from the ‘Harvest Shadow’ set from Veechi along with one of the 3 sets of eyelashes from the ‘Natural 2’ eyelash pack from Mai Bilavio. Plus, my eyes are from the ‘Nissa’ set from Zombie Suicide.

And the whole look starts with the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Just a note, the artwork behind me is from Harry Cover, who was so kind as to share his work with me to enjoy while at home. It’s framed with the ‘Repurposed Barnwood Frames’ from [QE] Designs. I’m fascinated with the whole repurposing trend going on, of course I’ve always done it….it’s just that on the farm we called it scavenging to avoid having to buy something!

My pose is from the ‘Detached Bento Pose Set’ from FOXCITY.

I ♥ You All

This is kind of a dual purpose post! For one thing I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I can’t believe another year has come and gone and we’re all heading into 2018, another year older and hopefully wiser. On top of that, I want to thank everyone for their continued support with all the views, faves, and comments. I’ve surpassed 3,000 followers and that number seems unreal to me! When I started this back in 2014 I had absolutely no expectations. All I wanted was to have a purpose to my Second Life. I didn’t see any point in loving all the great fashion and changing my clothes regularly when I didn’t go anywhere, see anyone, or have any reason to wear any clothes at all. So, I started taking a few pics, badly of course, and now…..here I am! I’ve been on flickr longer, but on the blog this will be post number 778! I’ve struggled to find something to say, at times, but overall I truly enjoy the whole process, right from putting on an outfit, preparing and taking the pictures, and then on to thinking of a topic and putting it down on virtual paper. I’m still surprised to find out people read my posts, I think if I thought about who is reading it too much I’d end up not being able to write. I’m pretty shy and don’t like being the center of attention, so I continue to think that no one reads this and I’m able to be open and honest, and most certainly myself! Thank you, everyone!

Today’s picture is just me in a perpetual kiss, brought to you by the lovely ‘Lilo’ bento head and animations from Catwa. I’m wearing the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on it.

The mesh eyes are from the ‘Nissa’ eyes set from Zombie Suicide and I’ve added eye shadow from the ‘Sultry Shadows’ set of eye shadow from Veechi. My eye lashes are from the ‘Naturals 2’ pack from Mai Bilavio.

The ‘F516’ hair is from tram.

One More Light

Should’ve stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
There are things that we can have, but can’t keep

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

The reminders pull the floor from your feet
In the kitchen, one more chair than you need oh
And you’re angry, and you should be, it’s not fair
Just ’cause you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it, isn’t there

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

Well I do

One More Light ~Linkin Park~

Please forgive me if I seem to be dwelling on music and songs lately. but it’s winter and there’s really not much going on…..so I love to listen to music to while away the time. Is there anything better? I sit either at the computer or with my phone in the living room and scroll through all that YouTube has to offer. I don’t go for anything other than music videos though, although I know that YouTube’s a wealth of information about anything you might want to know. I’ve been know to search for directions on how to do this or that, I did find one video on how to fix a TV that was completely honest and up front. The first thing the guy says is, ‘If you’ve come here to find out how to fix your TV, you’re proving that you shouldn’t event try!’. I mean, just because you can find directions on how to do something doesn’t mean you should do it. I’m not against trying to fix things myself, heck I’ll give most things a try at least once, but I know that if there’s a doctor giving instructions on how to do a lobotomy, I probably shouldn’t be trying it! I do know my limits, although I have had some near misses and scares, the kind that Jackass would feature, of course.

I’m wearing the ‘Liz Bento Rings’ from Slipper Originals here, and I didn’t pick them to wear just because they’re named after moi! No, it’s just that they’re so pretty. Elle, of SO fame, has really found her niche in creating jewelry and accessories, her shoes have always been fabulous, but her accessories are incredible, with the large texture HUD with lots of metal and colour options and with various areas to customize, every set of rings, necklace, bracelet, or various other accessories can be customized to be exactly what you want. They fit the Maitreya bento hands and the SLink Dynamic hands.

The ‘Batra & Leok’ tattoo from Isuka is one gorgeous piece of artwork, and I am the canvas! This is the full body version and it’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus Omega compatible bodies, as well as classic avatars, just in case there’s still a few out there! You can also get it on Market Place.

The ‘G1113’ hair from tram is a new release and available at the current round of ~uber~.

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

You can catch a glimpse of the ‘Two Initial Charm Bracelet, gold’ from Izzie’s.

The eyes are one of the ten selections from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ set from Zombie Suicide.

I’ve added one of the nine selections from the ‘Sultry Shadow’ set of eye shadow from Veechi here. It’s available now at District20.

And as always, my skin is ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, and available until December 7 at Appliquè. ‘Raine’ looks gorgeous on the ‘Lilo’ mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the Single Poses pack 16 from The Owl.

I’m sitting in front of the ‘Forgotten Places Fireplace’ from Cheeky Pea.

The house plants to the left are from {what next}.
