{ Elemental }

Oh my, my, my, what you do to me
Like lighting when I’m swimming in the sea
From the very first time we loved
From the very first time we touched
Walking on wires and power lines
You put your body on top of mine

Every time that you lift me up
To the heavens and stars above
Ooh Lord have mercy I’m begging you, please
I’m feeling drained, I need love
You charge me up like electricity
Jumpstart my heart with your love

There’s an energy
When you hold me
When you touch me
It’s so powerful
I can feel it

{ “Will you step into my parlor?” said the Spider to the Fly }

“Will you step into my parlor?” said the spider to the fly;
“’Tis the prettiest little parlor that ever you did spy.
The way into my parlor is up a winding stair,
And I have many pretty things to show when you are there.”
“O no, no,” said the little fly, “to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne’er come down again.”

Bests_FINAL

As a Second Life user for nearly 7 years, I’ve seen my share of friends come and go.  Sometimes only temporarily, sometimes and very unfortunately all too permanently.  But one thing is true, if you invest in someone.. a friendship that starts in a virtual world, is and can be more real than anything.  We grow attached to people here just like anywhere else.  I’ve heard people say many times, how the people they’ve met through SL have become closer to them than even their ‘real life’ friends.  And it isn’t surprising that some people who might find it otherwise difficult to make friends due to social anxieties in the real world, feel more comfortable making friends in Second Life and opening up more about themselves.  SL is far more than a game.  I can’t even really call it that.  It’s a social venue of unbounded virtual proportions.  How many places can you meet and connect with someone from the other side of the world and hang out with them on a daily basis?  SL has brought countless people together.  And it warms my heart when I hear stories about those who have actually had the privilege of stepping outside of SL and meeting face to face in the real world as well.  To those that have, I envy you!  Those are special memories and proof of just how real these bonds really are.

So enough of the mushy stuff… the NEW Friends Pose “Bests” above will be coming soon (March 25th) from oOo Studio to the Color Me: Pink Event! The lovely little Daybed Decor set is from {What Next} and is available right now at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative: ‘Bon Voyage’.  The set is also available in 2 other color schemes as well if pink is not your thing. 😉  Check the credits below for the rest of the details…  And happy shopping everyone!

{ Hold On } NEW from GizzA and Empyrean Forge!

I’m quite excited to be showing you a couple new items totally unrelated and it’s almost like they were meant to go together. Love it when that happens!  Firstly GizzA introduced this sexy little lowcut dress recently in a variety of colors, this happens to be one of the camo variations and works great with my mesh body.  But I was thrilled that it matched perfectly to my new Circadian Set from Empyrean Forge out now at The Secret Affair.  The set is quite unique to anything I’ve seen before.  The crystals on the set (which also includes earrings, not shown) are color-changing with a HUD.  It has a fantasy flair which Empyrean Forge is known for but as you can see it works well even with more modern fashion style.

{ Everything I gave is wasted }

Dystopia_FINAL

Can’t resist poisoning the message
Just a narcissist trapped inside the wreckage
And the sympathy I had is gone
Deadened by the ceremony
Drama queen,
Stand behind your empire
As your kingdom falls, all because

Take away your broken misery,
I can’t wait to erase your memory
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me.
Everything I gave is wasted,
I’m the one who suffocated
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me

Your rescue, my undo
I’m not the one to save you
I’m empty completely
I’m drowning in your shadow

Take away your broken misery,
I can’t wait to erase your memory
This love, this love is gonna be the end of me.
Everything I gave is wasted,
I’m the one who suffocated
This love, this love is gonna be the end of

Cant chase away your ghost,
Inside it only grows
Nothing left but misery
This will be the end of me
All the shit that you created,
All the scars you celebrated
Couldn’t take away your pain
Couldn’t resurrect your gain
This love will be the end of me,
This love will be the end.

{ Fresh From the Market } & Happy Anniversary to meee!

My life is a constant ever-moving roller-coaster ride of ups and downs and all arounds… A to-do list that never gets shorter than a half a page and the “have to’s” far outweigh the “want to’s”.  But sometimes in the middle of all the craziness I just stop and put all the deadlines and chores aside and just do something, anything…for me.  It’s necessary, not only for my own emotional well-being, but the physical too.

A couple years ago when I was in the middle of a huge RL move and building a home and trying to keep it all together, stressed beyond belief, I was diagnosed with Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.  Often mimicking depression, most doctors dole out anti-depressants and send you on your way.  But I learned that the effects of stress on your body physically… are very real.  My body showed me that it was done.  It had run out of gas and I was going for the crash, by my back going out on me out of nowhere.   I didn’t do anything, I didn’t twist wrong or pick up something heavy.  I was standing there and it just hit me.  After taking a couple tests I discovered my cortisol levels had peaked and plummeted resulting in a body that wasn’t able to recover from things like.. a back going out.  It took months of chiropractic therapy and relying on narcotics just to get me through the rigors of moving and on to a less stressful life.  But I’m a chronic “yes” person.  So I would have to learn to say “no” more, to not take on more than I can handle, and to make time for things that I enjoy and relax me.

This week marks one year since I started this blog.  I’d been taking photos for long before that in Second Life, and had always enjoyed it, but sometimes you want to switch things up and try something different, so taking it to a blog format was new and exciting.  It is not and never has been a job for me, but rather a hobby, and I do it because it is something I enjoy.  The past few months I’ve had to slow down on all things SL because of starting school in RL but coming back to do a few pictures like this here and there are for my well-being..for my creative outlet… and I’m just glad you all let me share it with you.
