{ Cover your crystal eyes }

I know I’ll wither so peel away the bark
‘Cause nothing grows when it is dark
In spite of all my fears, I can see it all so clear
I see it all so clear

Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colours bleed and blend with mine

But I’m okay in see-through skin
I forgive what is within
‘Cause I’m in this house
I’m in this home
All my time

Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones that tremble down your spine
Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colours bleed and blend with mine

Baby I’m preying on you tonight
Hunt you down, eat you alive

I can smell your scent for miles

{ Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear. }

“Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear.”

The above quote was one that I came across recently in one of my daily scrollings on tumblr and it really resonated with me, stopping me and making me think about it for a while.  Sometimes I think we don’t really believe it to be true though.  Fear is a really good manipulator.  Making you feel inadequate and like a failure before you’ve even begun.  Without hope, what do we have?  What can we accomplish?  What’s the point of trying?  Fear robs us of any chance we may have at happiness.

The seed of hope can be quite small, but it can grow and expand.. baby steps. Every little effort to try, to not give up, strengthening it.  When hope grows, fear shrinks.  Does it guarantee success?  No. But it does guarantee a quality of life that is more meaningful. Life is full of variables some of which we control, and many of which we don’t.  No one knows what is waiting around the corner, or who will walk through the next door.  Life is about change.

There’s another saying that I love, “Everything will be okay in the end.  If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”  There is no promise of an easy life.  (My mother reminded me of this often as I was growing up).  And at times, life can be a bottomless pit of despair.  When you hit rock bottom, there’s only one way to go.  Look up.  I struggle with fear daily.  Fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of loneliness..and the list goes on.  The still small voice of hope is often drowned out by the taunting voice of fear.  But whether you hear it today or not, it’s still there.  It doesn’t go away.  And it will be waiting for you.

Hope_FINAL

A flicker of hope like a firefly in the night.  A reminder that you are not alone.  Let your eyes focus in the darkness on that burst of light.  Follow it.  Let it guide you.  For each day is a new beginning and a chance to make your dreams come true.

{ There’s a Beauty in Walking Away }

Train-full_draftI’m always on the lookout for beautiful new spots in SL to take photos and Flickr is always a great place to scour through the many photos and see where others are travelling around the grid.. I happened upon this lovely new little town setting called Jade Fawn made by the uber talented Felicity Blumenthal.  She’s not only an awesome blogger and photographer, but really amazing at interior and exterior design.  I kind of fell in love with the lonely little train station there and because it was the perfect winteresque setting for my idea, i plopped down my luggage and waited for my train.

The new Tilton winter coat and dress combo from ColdLogic paired very well with the exclusive Kourtney Booties from LaRoo and then topped off with the new GizzA felt hat, and a classic snowy white and black outfit was born.  By the way, that luggage from .Infiniti. is color-changing annnnd chocked full of poses as well, so they are pretty and practical!

Hope everyone has a great start to winter in SL!
