Oh so, your wounds they show
I know you have never felt so alone
But hold on, head up, be strong
Oh hold on, hold on until you hear them come
Here they come, oh
Take an angel by the wings
Beg her now for anything
Beg her now for one more day
Take an angel by the wings
Time to tell her everything
Ask her for the strength to stay
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything
You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything

{ I’ll be waiting.. come and find me }

Hi there. Remember me?  Pardon me for being missing in action for the past few weeks but between birthdays and parental duties and getting in a knock down drag out fight with a flu virus I’ve had my hands full.  I’m still a bit under the weather but I’m on the upswing and a particular event in Second Life had me motivated to get out some pics and posts before it passed on by… I’m referrring to the latest round of Enchantment, of course!

castle-large_final

This month’s theme of “Cinderella” has me nostalgic for my childhood and remembering seeing it for the first time in the movie theater on the big screen.  A fairytale coming alive before my eyes.. and the story of a girl that against all odds had her dreams come true.  If anything Cinderella should give us all a little bit of hope for something better. And that it’s never too late for your happily ever after.

Check out Enchantment before the magic ends March 4th!  The clock is ticking!  (The date was extended to the 4th due to sim issues earlier in the event)

{ White with Snow }

The lake is frozen over
The trees are white with snow
And all around reminders of you
Are everywhere I go
It’s late and morning’s in no hurry
But sleep won’t set me free
I lie awake and try to recall
How your body felt beside me
When silence gets too hard to handle
And the night too long

{ Cozy Christmas }

 

Twas the night before Christmas….

… that all through the house

this blogger was too busy, there was no time to slouch.

 

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

but not on her platform, no she wouldn’t be found there.

 

For real life was calling; there was much still to do

and Second Life would have to wait…no blogging pictures yet – boo!!

 

But now that the gifts have been given, the presents are unwrapped

the foods all been eaten and that means I can finally RELAX

 

So off to my computer I flew like a flash

logged in and got snapping and prayed not to crash.

 

I sprang from my seat, and to myself gave a ‘wewt wewt’

The task was complete and the result was pretty cute!

 

Although it’s a day late, the sentiment is still valid alright..

HAPPY BELATED CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly (oh, yeah)
Fly right into the future

The Secret Affair geared up this round by tinkering with all things Steampunky.  A popular roleplay genre in Second Life for many that dates back to the early days and still many sims abound with Victorian gadgetry from pre-mesh days. The Secret Affair can certainly help bring you up to date with some creative low land impact goodies but you better time hop on over before it ends November 30th!

{ Will I always feel this way.. }

She lifts her skirt up to her knees
Walks through the garden rows
With her bare feet laughing
I never learned to count my blessings
I choose instead to dwell
In my disasters
I walk on down the hill
Through grass grown tall
And brown and still
It’s hard somehow
To let go of my pain
On past the busted back
Of that old and rusted Cadillac
That sinks into this field
Collecting rain
Will I always feel this way
So empty
And estranged?

seasons-full_finalseasons-close_final

and of these cut throat busted sunsets
These cold and damp white mornings
I have grown weary
If through my cracked and dusty
Dime store lips
I spoke these words out loud
Would no one hear me?
Lay your blouse across the chair
Let fall the flowers
From your hair
And kiss me
With that country mouth
So plain
outside the rain is tapping
On the leaves
To me it sounds like
They’re applauding us
The quiet love
We’ve made
Will it always feel this way
So empty
So estranged?

{ Fine Ass Mess }

Let me tell yo something bout you girl
You can’t be sexy with an attitude
You wanna know why? Do you wanna know why?
Hear me out, shut up and listen for a minute
It’s time to clean all these closets out, starting with you
Sweet as a rose, but yet still covered in thorns
It’s hurting your image
Everyday you chose to live for the moment
It sure got you dirty
Girl, you a fine-ass mess
I hate that it’s true
Baby, it’s time to get the mud off your dress
Way too much been swept up under your rug
