{ Time keeps on slipping }

Time keeps on slipping
Into the future
Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping
Into the future
I want to fly like an eagle, to the sea
Fly like an eagle
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!

Wetter_FINAL

“The Little Mermaid” is the theme for the return of Enchantment!  If you haven’t heard of Enchantment, it’s an event in SL where designers and creators take inspiration from fairy tales.  This round is a particularly fun one for me, as “The Little Mermaid” is one of my long time loves.  How can you not be enchanted by tales of underwater castles, mermaid princesses and of course, evil sea witches??  Time to flip your fins like you just don’t care.
Wetter-closeup_FINALFor all things under the sea… check it out starting tomorrow, August 14th!  The event will continue thru September 4th.

{ Love’s floating away } Gacha Garden is OPEN!

Say you love me to my face
I need it more than your embrace
Just say you want me, that’s all it takes
Heart’s getting torn from your mistakes

‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you’re mine
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away

Just say you love me, just for today
And don’t give me time ’cause that’s not the same
Want to feel burning flames when you say my name
Want to feel passion flow into my bones
Like blood through my veins

‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If you don’t wanna try,
But all that I’ve been thinking of
Is maybe that you’re mine
Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say
And love’s floating away
Won’t you stay?!

Won’t you stay?!

Blooms_FINAL

Love’s floating away and so was my time this weekend… so I’m a few days behind on letting you all know some important news: The Gacha Garden is now OPEN! This is a new gacha event that rewards you if you’re one of those that plays the machine again and again trying to get that THING, that thing you NEED. After 20 plays you’ll get an exclusive item (aka “The Seed of Inspiration“) gifted to you just as a nifty “thank you” from that creator/designer.  Pretty nice, I’d say.. so get on over and play, have fun, and good luck gacha-ing!

{ Between the raindrops }

Look around
There’s no one but you and me
Right here and now
The way it was meant to be
There’s a smile on my face
Knowing that together everything that’s in our way
We’re better than alright

Walking between the raindrops
Riding the aftershock beside you
Off into the sunset
Living like there’s nothing left to lose
Chasing after gold mines
Crossing the fine lines we knew
Hold on and take a breath
I’ll be here every step
Walking between the raindrops with you

Take me now
The world’s such a crazy place
When the walls come down
You’ll know I’m here to stay
There’s nothing I would change
Knowing that together everything that’s in our way
We’re better than alright

And though I never got her name
Or time to find out anything
I loved her just the same

And though I rode a different road
And sang a different song
I’ll love her ’till my last breath’s gone.
