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.

House Where Nobody Lives

House Where Nobody Lives

There’s a house on my block
That’s abandoned and cold
Folks moved out of it a
Long time ago
And they took all their things
And they never came back
Looks like it’s haunted
With the windows all cracked
And everyone calls it
The house, the house where
Nobody lives

Once it held laughter
Once it held dreams
Did they throw it away
Did they know what it means
Did someone’s heart break
Or did someone do somebody wrong?

Well the paint was all cracked
It was peeled off of the wood
Papers were stacked on the porch
Where I stood
And the weeds had grown up
Just as high as the door
There were birds in the chimney
And an old chest of drawers
Looks like no one will ever
Come back to the
House where nobody lives

Once it held laughter
Once it held dreams
Did they throw it away
Did they know what it means
Did someone’s heart break
Or did someone do somebody wrong?
So if you find someone
Someone to have, someone to hold
Don’t trade it for silver
Don’t trade it for gold
I have all of life’s treasures
And they are fine and they are good
They remind me that houses
Are just made of wood
What makes a house grand
Ain’t the roof or the doors
If there’s love in a house
It’s a palace for sure
Without love…
It ain’t nothing but a house
A house where nobody lives
Without love it ain’t nothing
But a house, a house where
Nobody lives

House Where Nobody Lives‘ ~Tom Waits~

Thanks to Vrir, I’ve just listened to pure magic. The lyrics and haunting voice of Tom Waits are a perfect combination and it’s all so true. I’m one who needs a home, I don’t feel complete without somewhere that I can leave the rest of the world and immerse myself in my own world, surrounded by what brings me peace and comfort. Some people say they can live anywhere, and I can’t relate to that. Oh, I’ve lived in different places, but have never felt more complete as when I live here, on the farm. I feel a true connection with the land that’s been in my family for generations and there’s so many memories here, but they’re not a burden, it just makes me more aware of family history and keeping the spirit of the place alive. There’s nothing so poignant as a farm yard alive with it’s history, each building and every corner having it’s own meaning for the various people who have lived here. The saying is ‘home is where you hang your hat’, but for me home is where my heart is and it’s always been right where I am now.

The September round of ~uber~ is on and *Just BECAUSE* has released the ‘Simone Top’ exclusive for the event. The deep V neckline shows a pretty decolletage and the hemline that scoops up higher on the front and goes low on the back catches the eye. It comes in 26 colours, there’s a printpack of 8 prints(one seen here) and also the fatpack is available and it contains all colours and the printpack too. The top is compatible with the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies.

The ‘H0919’ from tram is also at the latest round of ~uber~. The soft wisps around the face frame it well and included with this hair is a HUD to change the colour of the inner part of the hair independently. You guys all know how much I love tram, and this is another one that confirms why I do!

The jeans are ‘Jolene’ from Blueberry. You can’t see it here, but I’ve chosen the skinny leg version this time.

As per usual, 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 one of the 8(plus mirrors) poses in the ‘Wander’ set from .Infiniti..

I took this picture at Soul2Soul Bay. I’d not been there before, but I’ll be going back to explore again.

Looking for the Summer

Looking for the Summer

Look deep into the April face
A change has clearly taken place
Looking for the summer

The eyes take on a certain gaze
And leave behind the springtime days
Go looking for the summer

This ain’t no game of kiss and tell
The implications how you know so well
Go looking for the summer

The time has come and they must go
To play the passion out that haunts you so
Looking for the summer

Remember love how it was the same
We scratched and hurt each others growing pains
We were looking for the summer

And still I stand this very day
With a burning wish to fly away
I’m still looking
Looking for the summer

Looking For The Summer‘ ~Chris Rea~

I’ve not done a weather report on my part of the world in awhile, so here it is! It’s cold……..relatively speaking…….and snowy…….with some rain thrown in and…did I mention cold? September was trucking along fairly well early on, we had warm autumn weather with warm breezes and the harvest was in full swing…..then……it started to suck. We got a couple rainy days, then the highs for the days got lower and lower……then a couple days ago it snowed, and it’s not gone yet!! We had flurries yesterday and a high of +4°C…like…….wtf? The sad part about cold weather like this, this early is that every day we have a cold day now is one less day of nice weather we’ll have. The normal highs right now are +14°C, so we’re a long way from that and the coming week looks a bit better, but not up to the norm. So, here I sit…..looking for the summer, hell I’d be happy just to find autumn….it’s way to early for this sh*t!

It appears I’m looking for something here, and since I’m at the lovely Summers Wind, I’m sure to find summer here.

I’m wearing the gorgeous ‘Lillian Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE* here, and I think it’s one of the prettiest gowns ever. The panel down the side has a sheer(seen here) and solid version and the simple neckline keeps all the attention there. If you love this look but aren’t in the mood for a gown, the ‘Leanne Dress’ is the same upper, but it’s mid-thigh length is a little more casual and perfect for cocktails.

The 2018 version of the Hair Fair started on the 22nd and against my better judgement I made a visit. The ‘M120’ hair from .:CHEVEUX:. is new and exclusive to the event. If you’ve managed to get in to shop and have maybe gone over your budget, at least you can rest easy knowing a portion of every purchase goes towards Wigs for Kids, such a great cause to support. There are a bunch of LM’s that will get you to the different areas of the event, so search it in-world for all the LM’s. Here’s one that I used successfully, it’s the Foils West cam shopping sim, good luck.

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.

When I took this picture I failed to make note of the pose I used, and with my memory such as it is, for the life of me I can’t remember what it was. Sorry.

Lovesong

Lovesong

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again

You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you

I’ll always love you
I’ll always love you
‘Cause I love you
Love, love, love…

Lovesong‘ ~The Cure~

I was running to get into the September round of Collabor88 bright and early yesterday and when I left I had an empty wallet, and my arm was sore from carrying so many bags! So I made multiple costume changes throughout the day but had no wardrobe malfunctions, so all in all it was a good day!

The first thing I grabbed was the ‘Long Sweater’ from Tres Blah! It was one of those instances that the phrase, ‘ask and ye shall receive’ fit! Since it’s sweater weather in my real world a new one is perfect timing, and Vrir and I had discussed all the great things about oversized sweaters, so when I got to C88 it was like it had a ray of sunlight on it and it was calling my name! I got the fat pack to get the 5 bonus colours. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza(Isis/Freya).

The ‘Yumi’ hair is from [monso], and it’s new and exclusive to Collabor88, too!

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.

The pose is ‘Model 823’ from Manifeste.

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.
